On the memo front, Mr Man had an appointment at the big hospital in Toronto on Friday & he will have to begin another 6-7 treatments that involve an injection into the eye.No reason for why he has bleeding behind the eye (again). He's been through this treatment before BUT a memo has been sent to our local eye specialist that gives permission for the eye injections to be done at the local clinic. We just need to receive confirmation that it can be done. It would save so much travel time & anxiety. The treatments are spaced out at 6 week intervals, so with winter coming, we have all our possible body parts crossed that Dr Bob says yes - driving on winter roads to/from Toronto are not how either of us want to spend time. This was one of my brave activities ...

The weather continues to be a prime topic for radio, TV & discussions. The world seems to be in the midst of fire, the shakes, wind & water - yeah it does sound just like a list of symptoms listed on that menopause brochure we have in the waiting room at work! Massive out of control forest fires are still raging & growing in our western provinces. Mexico was not only hit with a massive earth quake but a hurricane. Several Caribbean island have been totally destroyed & several southern states in the US of A are heavily damaged by 3 hurricanes in a row; Harvey, Irma & Jose. Prayers for all affected by Mother Nature's mood swings.
And speaking of weather, as it turns cooler locally, I see evidence of change in the farmers fields of soy & in my own garden. Sunday we had big clear blue skies & lots of sunshine.

I cannot find any explanation as to why my white roses, Glamis Castle, always get red sprinkle spots on the last flowers of the season. It's not an insect & it's not a mold. I wonder if it is "reflecting" back to it's root stock breeding.

On the mail front there should have been lots of cards wishing Mr Man a happy birthday, but he forbids anyone to celebrate, mention or wish him a happy birthday. He's always been like this, hates his own birthday but takes great joy in celebrating mine. We did go out for a special brunch but it was not a birthday celebration.

Monday please be good to me, I have high hopes that the start of the work week is a good one ...
