DETOUR...Men at Work

Let's make that WOMAN at WORK.  

Had a busy day running my boy to vet; more on that later in the post.

And am in the middle of making more handy hooker pockets to put in the camp store at Cape May when I go September second week.  One is done with pennies.  The magnet at the top holds the scissors and the pocket at the bottom could hold your various hooks or snippets.    In case you are wondering, that beautiful horse hooked piece is something I purchased from talented Tonya Roby of MadHenPrims.
Am going to make 3 more and here is wool being considered for others with different designs and will have different colors.
Now for my boy Ben.  I feel privileged to have both vets on duty when taking Ben this morning to Western Sussex Animal Hospital.  At his annual visit last week and again this week the speen was enlarged. Plus the sonogram did show something suspicious.  They are being cautious because Ben had a 'low grade mast cell tumor' removed in March this year and those often show up again.  

Ben is now 8 years 3 months, a large boy and want to keep him as long as possible.  Here he is totally wasted by today's doctor's visit.   Hey Ben, I feel your pain I'm not fond of doctor appointments and tests either.
Then the bald belly where they wanted clean shots for the sonogram. Am so glad I wasn't there while they inserted the needle to retract fluid.  They said he was a good boy.  I say he's my almost perfect boy. Were it not for the vehicles with wheels thing...... he would be perfect. But I love him nevertheless.
Have a good evening and I'm hoping to pull a couple loops on Turkey and Tallowberies in a few minutes.
