The boys found Abner broken & bleeding beside the front step
on their way to school on the 5th. I took him to the vet to be
put to sleep. He'd been attacked by a big dog. Most of his right-side
ribs were broken, and his right lung was collapsed. Dr. O & the staff at
Broadmoor East Veterinary Clinic did a great job of fixing him up.

This is the stuff they like!

At first, I thought he got run over. We were going to put him to sleep.

Instead of putting him to sleep, the vet thought she could fix Abner.

Because of the dry winter in our area,
the rock climbing season has started up a bit early.
Also, there has been a flurry of fabric activity
about the house. Alissa has been a piecing
and quilting machine! Nice things.

Cell phone message to Alissa: Is this one okay?
