No post from us at the weekend because
we had a Drama ...
Archie got stung on the paw by a bee as we were
enjoying a nice relaxed stroll round the Chiltern Open Air Museum.
It swole up hugely and he couldn't put any weight on it at all.
This meant that the Madwoman had to carry him back to the car.
It couldn't have been more than half a mile but from the way she
was puffing and panting by the time we got there you'd think she'd run a marathon.
Anyway, Archie had antihistamines and Apis Mel and an icepack and a bit of Grandma's roast beef and is now feeling much better. 
We think it was probably the roast beef that did the trick.

Ouch! Rest well - as I see you are! (Dignity at all times ...)

I thought you'd got hold of a photo of my great aunt Rita for a moment! - But glad to know Archie is feeling better.

Nah, you won't be getting any rhubarb and ginger jam from us Sue! But thank you for the good wishes, and thanks to the healing powers of roast beef, Archie is once more feeling fine ...
