Flower Friday the 13th "Hangover".....

My Senior 6 month wellness update at the end
The hosta plant below right corner lives
in the tall red pot under the Maple tree near our Sanctuary* top left corner.

Dad mentally designed this spot then presented his mental image to our the ultimate landscaper Adam...
When Adam finished...he told Dad it looked like a Sanctuary* that is what we call it.

Senior 6 month wellness results
I've gained about 3 ounces...woohoo
my kidney levels were good...except my phosphorus was up a wee bit from
3 months ago.  Dr. Szabo tweaked  RX for Aluminum Hydroxide which is a phosphorus binder.
This is okey dokey fine since it doesn't have any taste and
is sprinkled over my food.  I also got my Rabies vaccine.
This Jaguar's chassis is good to go for 6 more months.

Oh and my loo has a fancy pants sun screen over it. Nick the installer was quicker than greased lightning.  I didn't even know he was here. No more scary shadows in my litter box
and we can raise and lower it as need be.

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday

Today we join Two  SPOILED CAT 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.

Here is today's photo prompt
We thank Mom Pam for all the effort she puts into finding 
these lovely photos for us.

State Fair 
this is a true story

Every October the State Fair comes to town 
As a child, my excitement was hard to keep down
Ferris wheels, roller coasters and giant slides
Even a bearded lady was said to reside.
Food galore was everywhere
Hot dogs, cotton candy, and popcorn and so much more.
When you are five,
mixing, cotton candy and hot dogs is not advised
Within minutes my fun took a dive
Off to the first aid station they did drive
I broke out in the worst case of hives  
but thankfully I am still alive.

Since I had eaten many hot dogs in my five years, it was quickly determined
I was allergic to cotton candy or possible the dye in it.

Today's photo prompt
reminded me so much of a picture I have on our office wall. 
It was taken in ~1988 by one of my favorite Chemistry graduate students from France.
It was his first trip to the N. C. State Fair. This was way way before digital cameras.
All the pictures he took were with slides easy to travel with and develop.
When he showed me the photos he took, 
I loved the slide so much he turned it into a photo for me.

Breaking News!!
Today is going to be trying.  Gottcha Covered is coming at 
1:30 to install sunscreen shades on the skylight over my Loo and in my Blog office.
I hope and purr I don't need to use the Loo. 

Once the sun screen shade is in place there won't be any more 
wild and crazy shadows lurking in my loo.

 We are told the installer is quick as greased lightning.

Then to add insult to injury......I have my Senior Wellness Physical ...@3:30 pm
I will sing the song of my people all they way there (10 minutes) and back.
I suspect there will be a blood letting to check on my kidney values and I know
there will be at least one vaccine.  I will try to be brave.
Of course we'll share my visit with you all later.
