As usual, Chester and I took our walk along the Red River this morning. Usually, I just take pictures of the river – and I did that again – but today, I took a picture of Chester when he turned around to see if I was still coming. 🙂
He doesn’t like to stop while I take pictures and constantly has to remind me that this is his walk!
Chester is doing good. He looks forward to his walks, his meals, his sleeps and cuddling with his blanket. He always lets me know if he thinks I am spending too much time in front of the computer by bringing a toy to me so we can play with it together. One of his toys is good for a tug of war game and most of the others are good for him to throw at me so I can throw it for him to bring back. He loves his squeaky toys. 🙂
It has been over a week since I contacted the city about the digging in my yard that exposed the water shut-off valve and I still had not heard from them, so I called 311 again. This time I was lucky enough to get someone with a bit more knowledge and she explained what the likely reason for the digging. She put a note on the file as a reminder to get them to call, but she looked further into my situation and told me what was already noted. A few months earlier I had a leak at my water meter (I’m sure I wrote about it then) and I found the guy digging in my yard to find the shut-off valve. When I told him he didn’t need to shut if off there, since I had one inside, he came inside and fixed the problem for me. What I didn’t know is that he put a note on the file at that time that the outside valve needed to be located and that is probably why there were there. She couldn’t confirm it (of course), but it was nice of her to let me know that is the probable reason they were there. She also told me that they come to fix the messes in the spring on or before June 30th.
It’s time to head for Africa, via Africam. Have a great day.
