    Good mornooning all

    I started yesterday at the rescue and had to clean out the cutest 3 week old hedgehog born at the rescue . Mum is doing a good job raising him and is very displeased by being disturbed, but just occasionally the quantity of poop means we do have to do it. I am one of the few volunteers trusted with this.

    We have an escaped patient in the unit I was working in... still not caught at the time I left :D

    I also had a lady on her second day training with me and when she left at 1pm a student on her first day training with me.

    I sprinted home when we finally finished, changed and went back out in 10 minutes flat and headed up to London to see a concert at the Royal Festival Hall. This is a view over the river Thames from the RFH as the sun was etting :)

    LOL. Actually it is sometimes easier working on the computer. Typing most certainly is easier, pictures however are not. As it will be more involved to get them uploaded.
    But all it means is that on weekends and holidays I will not be coming online.

    It is only 09:03am here in the morning and I am already feeling hot. Your pictures made me feel cool just for a second or two. It was really nice.

    Oh is that what Yvonne meant. Lol completely flew over my head. I cannot get on TFO on my phone via browser as a while back by accident I somehow disabled the link to TFO via browser. Don't ask me what I did, because I don't know and I don't know how to put it back. so for me the only means is via my work computer at work.

    Good Day All

    Record breaking temp yesterday - it hit 98F degrees! - luckily we were on the water, as was this little Raccoon family. There was a small group, probably a family looking for some free fish-n-chips, at water’s edge.

    Overcast. Hot. Humid. ...but no sunshine. Bla

    But.....I’m still on my “high” of sunshine and H2O from yesterday’s kayaking!

    One of our break spots where I’m thinking of a cooler weather overnight camping location.

    Yes. My brother has an iPad and is constantly getting himself in a pickle. I can't help him because I can't use one. Our sister knows how but we have problems because Joe does things and we wind up having to reset the whole thing. Even with my android phone I discover new things it's capable of let alone trying to figure out an iPad. You are so blessed to have your sideline. Even with an mia mouse. Sounds fun while making a difference.

    I'm doing pretty good, trying to make some enclosures for future torts and turts.

    It cooled off enough that Saphire got to go outside to catch some rays. That makes my day happier and his more.

    You are down near South Carolina Pet Supply. I've bought their TNT supplement for tortoises. I think they are really nice people.

    Just a reminder to shout out if you want to join the card exchange.

    Last posting date for Christmas to @CarolM was probably in June, but she has Christmas in the summer time anyway :D
