If you’re wondering why the CE and I haven’t much poked our heads up to say hi since our return to Chickenland, it is due to technical difficulties. And not the kind that our computer guy can fix. I’m having my usual ho-hum issues with stairs, driving, etc which you’ve all heard about ad nauseum and ad infinitum (not that I will complain one iota less due to that, you understand). But now we have a NEW permutation on the Gimp Life, with the CE vying for first place in the sympathy stakes: you know how he’s been hobbling around for the past several months saying “Oh, it’s nothing” ?
Well, it’s not nothing. It’s something. A mouthful of something. Waiting on the MRI to confirm the diagnosis but he apparently has a rupture of the posterior tibialis tendon. And, according to the latest doc he’s seen, he needs to have surgery ASAP.

As you can imagine, this is putting a crimp in everyone’s style. All volunteer dog-walkers, for instance, are invited to report front and center, as poor Chloe and Soho now have TWO useless masters.
The CE's mood-o-meter is at this level
All that said, we did have an exceptional time back in NYC – the pix will be up soon, I promise!
