The Foot Saga Continued.

Hayden dislikes any intervention when it comes to his health and well being.

So this is what it looks like when you weight for an xray.

 Scared still.  Not wanting to go in the room.  Three nurses and me to get the xray.

Than after another long wait,  sedation,  he finally had a back plaster and padding to be worn another 3 days before  it all would be finally be removed. 

So Hayden, recovering from sedation and the nausea again feeling sorry for himself.

Hospital visits are such a trauma for him.

Without asking......

What is it about the world wide web that people think that they can lift other peoples images from anywhere and send/ use them as they like.  That they can take the images they want to make them say or mean something else than originally intended.  Maybe even make people think they own that image. But most hurtful is when that someone is a person you know.  That she they have used an image of yours without asking for permission (yes I am only a phone call or txt away) then it really hurts. 

What is about this generation of young people that they think they are untouchable from behind their smartphones and smart apps.  Where has the looking people in the face and watching their reactions become not important?

 (image source is here)

Just maybe the person receiving the image is now crying.

So from now on my images, yes my ordinary everyday images will have a water mark on them and this makes me really sad.

Spring is here ..... maybe

Spring is supposed to arrive in my part of the world in about September.  I am constantly amazed though, that come August, the coolest month of the year, lambs are busy running around my neighbours paddocks.

Don't get me wrong,   I love summer and the warm sun so seeing the lambs running around is exciting as summer is not too far away.  The sunshine will warm up, the grass will smell fresh and green and happiness reigns.

(DD with a new born lamb at the neighbours house.)
