Measles

It would seem that the paragraph in my last blogpost about exclamation marks and dashes being a personal thing, has really set off a rash.   If you look at the comments in reply to the post you will see that it has spread through blogland like wildfire.   John (By Stargoose and Hanglands) has had a truly bad attack and many others are quite badly infected.   It just goes to show how quickly things spread through the blogosphere.

The farmer's operation went well.   He says he never felt a thing.   In fact the only irritation when he arrived home (the hospital is almost an hour's drive away) was how long the journey had taken them because of all the roadworks with traffic lights.   This morning he has taken the dressing off and it is drying up nicely but looks as though it will leave a nasty scar - although this will be largely hidden by his spectacles.   Not being at all vain I don't think he will mind anyway.   He goes next Friday to have the large number of stitches (which look like staples) removed.

Out with friend W to Farmers' Market this morning, followed by a visit to an Art Exhibition and an Embroidery Exhibition, together with our usual cup of coffee.  I shall have to take an umbrella.

What a lovely way to spend a wet and gloomy day. The Farmer may well find that the scar will fade quite a bit over a few weeks.

It is good to know that The Farmer`s operation went well.

I know what you mean about punctuation measles. I suppose the use of exclamation marks helps to communicate our enthusiasm when we only have a few lines to work within. It is also catching (!).

I am guilty as charged!

Hi Pat!!!
What a pleasant plan for the day.
After a long and exceptionally snowy winter, we are enjoying a glorious spring. Pleasantly warm in the day, cool at night.Low humidity. Mostly sunny.

The flowers got a late start, though. And when they did bloom, they didn't seem to last as long as usual. The poison ivy, however, is having a field day. Gotta find something to kill it that won't be toxic to Josephine.
Happy Weekend!

Glad the farmer came through virtually unscathed - hope removing those staples is painless too! Oops - hard to chat without that darned you-know-what!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy weekend - hopefully the sun will be shining as it is here for our Memorial Day holiday.

We had sunshine here all day long, so it was a perfect day for a walk and lot of planting in pots and boxes.

Good. One more thing not to worry about. Oh, and his scar will be a badge of honour.

I think scars tend to look more alarming at first than they do in the long run. I had a friend who's face was very badly scarred from a car crash and, weirdly, when you knew him you just didn't notice it.

Must also go to the exhibition.

Thanks for your encouragement to the farmer - I have passed your comments on.
