    195 this morning, very dehydrated. Heat outside plus some kind of tummy bug, trying to drink more water - a small glass every hour. Did not get much sleep 😴 FunDad, roaming is fine on my books however putting puppy in the pen when you might be distracted for 30 sec is ok. NOT giving puppy a chance to go in the house is the point, only outside. I was lucky our new puppy wanted to go outside instead of litter box already, she never used it in our home (our old boy was sleeping in it, something to do with childhood memories); puppy girl had only 2 or 3 accidents and then she learned where to go to the exit to whine (new home, new layout, new rules). Do not feel guilty putting pup in the pen, it is good training - out of the pen go straight outside, puppy does its business, then bring puppy in, after 45 min put back in the pen, stay 15-30 min and repeat. Lots of work but helps to raise agreeable companion.

    Last night, it took me a while to contrive a way to sleep in an upright chair with some comfort. I look ridiculous because I have the injury side of the chair against a heavy desk and propped in the back so it can't tilt back. I then set up a piano stool to support my legs. I can then carefully rest on my side and sort of sleep. I tried all kinds of ideas on the bed but I either move out of position or the bed is just not quite firm enough resulting in pain. Oddly, the huge road rash on my shoulder is more distracting pain wise than the ribs. I expected yesterday to be tough, though. Day of, adrenaline, shock, denial, so on, make it seem no so bad. Day after, when everything is swelled up and you realize how busted up you are is the worst. Each day will be a little better. Stripped the bike down to get it to the shop. The frame looks ok. One of the cranks is bent and the rear derailleur is shot. Those can be replaced. I am grateful for the pain, it means I am alive.

    8.5 lots of bladder pain from PFMesh, so no walking today. First thoughts this morning were wondering how you got any sleep Mike. Like Ran, Ive had 2 broken ribs & sleeping was a challenge.

    My reading on this Sunday morning was 133 Yesterday I broke down and turned on the AC, the thermometer crossed the 90 degree (32C) mark for the first time this year and was very muggy and we are supposed to have our first heatwave of the season this week. But the sea breeze finally made it to my house around 6 PM and the temperature fell back into the upper 70s (~26C), so I went out to sit on the deck while I was listening to an audiobook. I noticed a single firefly blinking its way across my backyard and I felt sorry for him, he was about a week late in hatching. All the other fireflies were out cavorting around my backyard looking for sex about 2 weeks ago, I had dozens flashing their way around my backyard. It was a good year for them. (Did you know that glow stick were developed from fireflies, they use the same chemicals as the fireflies?)

    7.2 Janice, our aboriginals are the oldest surviving race on the planet, yet the Brits of the day declared they new best on raising children. This is Reconciliation week and it is hoped museums , universities & private collectors return stolen body parts to allow the descendants give them a burial in their own land. Not only were they murdered but their heads etc were removed & taken " to study". Diana, I love that photo...& its good to see visitors keep to the path to protect the vegetation. Heath survives the harshest conditions with drying strong winds each plant has to stand up to. I like to eye off a 6ft square & see or even identify all the different plants in that square.

    173. I goofed. I thought that I had to wait until the day that I normally took the shot to restart the shots but going back and reading the directions. It said to take the shot immediately when you realized that you miss your shot unless it is within 3 days of your normal dose. Now I know.

    6.8 after another sleepin. Woke at 5 for the bathroom but returned to bed only to be woken at 10am by a lawn mower in the street. Hang in there FunDad & perhaps prepare for those good times now by doing a course in a subject that will make those later years even greater. Photography? I'm so glad I studied horticulture. Not only did it pay my mortgage but left me with skills to notice & identify plants as I drive past etc but even greater it enhanced my love of Australian flora & fauna. Its a pleasure to sit by a native tree & recognise its modifications to evolve to that soil it embraces. Having freed myself from two marriages was enough for me, so took no alimony. Perhaps foolish, as Ive not even inherited any monies either, so its been a challenge at times but I'm content with my bit.

    A 57 (3.16) today. Diana, why not get a Relion Prime meter from Walmart for $9, as well as a pack of 50 test strips for $9, and leave them at your place at the Cape, that way, you will always have access to a meter and test strips.
