Front Yard

This view shows my pear tree (in front) and wild cherry trees uprooted from last May 8. My area was without electricity for 9 days, with some area's even more. The rest of the yard had apple trees that were cut up last spring. The pear tree still grew pears and I may try to winch the tree back and prop it up after cutting it down to about 8 feet.
Yesterday I brought Salty back from the Veterinarian after having his tooth removed and cleaning of all his teeth. I have a tooth gel that I will apply every two weeks, and toothpaste for dog's and will start brushing his teeth. I was told I did not need to get to the inside of his teeth. That would have been too difficult to do from my thoughts about it beforehand. He had one small mid tooth removed which the Dr. said was abscessed. He noticcd a 'tubular pulsation' which could be upper heart problem. He then attached the E.C.G. (e.k.g.) machine and the problem did not show. Because of this detection he will use the E.C.G. machine every year from now on. Also after dog's are 8 yrs. old he like to do blood work testing. Salty is about 7 years old this year.
I myself have been doing some push-ups daily to try to improve my left shoulder and I think it is doing some good.

Bummer about the trees. I hated losing our Plum tree. Glad you all have your power back. My Zoey is going to be 11 in a couple of weeks. Time flies.

Sorry that you lost all those fruit trees Mark. I hope Salty will be ok from now on. I have never heard of teeth causing heart problems in a dog. I wonder if that could apply to a human. Would you believe we are forecast for some snow tomorrow and South AL is supposed to get more than North AL. We live about a third of the way down close to the GA line. Wonder what we will end up with. Most times not but a light covering. Helen

Poor Salty. He seems to be having a rough year. I could never imagine having to brush my cats' teeth! That would be a comical scene to watch!

Hello!
I love cheery trees, cherries, wine, and woodcarving in cherry wood. I use a 1 1/2 horse router to carve things in wood and other fine tools. I love your pix/ artwork. some of them look like my home in Wisconsin.
