Poor OTL gets Stabbed but it was Free!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Wot a dismal day it's been, well weather wise it has! This morning it was damp, drizzly, wet stuff and foggy as well!

In fact it was so bad Old Two Legs didn't even get his camera out of the car and instead he stuck his paws in the jacket pockets and shuffled along behind us whilst trying to hide away from the damp by snuggling down into his jacket!

We had to get back home soon 'cos OTL had made an appointment with the doctors to get protection against 'Dingles', well that's what we thought he said but Holly says it's called 'Shingles'!

Now, I thought that shingles were something to do with the tiles on the roof but Holly says it is something nasty that Two Legs get from infected children!

Remember what I said yesterday about mini TL's? You see the mini TL get Chicken Pox and it's over in no time but if they pass it on to grown up TL's it turns into Shingles and hurts like hell!

OTL said he had shingles that was passed onto him by one of his mini TL's many many years ago and he didn't want another dose!

So, there he was in the doctors and the nurse was explaining all about shingles and the effects that the injection could have, it was a bit like the adverts you get on the radio, you know.

'This injection will not stop you getting shingles but will help in it's prevention, however, itispossibleitwillgiveyouasorearmeormakeyourmuscleacheanditmayalsogiveyouagrumblytummandspots
alloveryourbum.' !

Terms & Conditions also apply!

The only good thing was that OTL is such an old duffer that he qualifies for getting it free!

All those years paying National Insurance and all he gets is stabbed against shingles!

When he came back from the doctors he was limping which was strange 'cos we thought that he got stabbed in the arm! Holly says it may have been a long needle and that it was better not to ask or we could be there all day!

Come lunchtime it was still the same drizzly rain and grey foggy stuff!

Sniffs were hard to come by so we spent all of our time with our noses close to the ground!

Not exactly a prize sniff is it?
 It was the same on the beach, all sort of damp but no sensible sniffs!

Maybe it's a crab wee?
Back on the football field there was a woofer barking his tail off, we didn't know what he was barking at and we stood for a little while just in case we could add our woofs but there was nothing to see!

Gawd knows! Maybe he ought to get a visit to the vet for some worming tablets!
 So, back home it wasn't very busy, almost all of the paperwork had been done, all the suppliers have been paid and OTL was back to playing with the controls on his camera!

Tomorrow we got Auntie Sue and Nunkie Mike coming over for a visit. TM says she will be making some mince pies but without any mince meat, strange, wonder where she got that recipe from!

Bye bye for now.
