Travel Diary and Stuff

I found my travel diary from my trip to Europe many years ago.  I’m reading it now and so far, it looks like we got lost a lot and we seemed to be looking for guys wherever we went.   Those are 2 things that I had not remembered about the trip.  I also wasn’t 100% sure of when this was, but now I know that we left Winnipeg on May 31, 1975 and returned home on August 31, 1975.  I wish I could arrange to have 3 months in Africa.  🙂

I’m guessing we got lost because we didn’t have much in the way of maps – or the girls I went with weren’t great about reading the maps we did have.  I was the driver and would not have been reading a map while driving.  I’ll read more in the next few days and I might have some stories for you.  🙂

Chester made it through the day without having another seizure.  🙂  I talked to his vet yesterday afternoon and she wanted me to increase the dosage to an extra 1/2 pill at each meal – so 3 pills a day instead of 2.  He had the first extra dosage when I got home from work last night.  He made it through the night as well and has now has his second larger dosage.

I had the meet and greet appointment with my new doctor yesterday.  He seems very nice and the office staff are good as well.  I have been to this clinic a few times before on a walk-in basis – so they already have me in their data base and I just had to fill in a few pieces of information.  I have made an appointment for my annual exam for February.

He told me to fast from 10 pm the night before – something last year’s doctor neglected to do – so I will be ready for all the tests he wants to do.  The appointment is early enough that I don’t need to make it on my day off (he is also not available for appointments on Fridays), and I will have time to go back home and eat before work.

So far on Africam today, we have seen Woodland Kingfisher, Zebra, Cape Buffalo, Warthog, Giraffe, Elephant, Egyptian Goose, Nyala, Waterbuck,  and Wildebeest.  Click here to see all of today’s pictures.

Not much time left now to enter the contest to win a free year of Africam Pro (no ads).  Go to Africam’s Facebook.  On the left hand side, click on eyecon challenge, download the eyecon, print it out, put it somewhere and take a picture.  For those without a camera or a printer, they also have one that you can download and place on a picture using your computer software.

I haven’t been checking on the polar bear cam so decided to take a look this morning.  As of November 23rd, the bay had frozen over enough for them to head out onto the ice and find themselves some food.  I can’t imagine going that long without eating, and I wish them well.

It should be a fairly nice walk today, with a current temperature of -9C and a windchill that makes it feel like -14C.  The next few days are looking similar in temperature, so I certainly don’t have anything to complain about with the weather.  🙂  I just wish there was something around to take pictures of on our walks.
