A Broken Toenail

While I was out today doing errands, somehow my kitty damaged his toenail. Uncertain how or when it happened.

After I arrived home, my kitty laid in his bed by the window. I noticed a toenail. First, I thought it might be mine, on further inspection it was his claw.

All these years, owning cats, I never experience this. I checked his toenails, which he wasn’t too happy about. His right hind paw had the missing nail, there was no blood, and wasn’t sore when I touched it. The missing toenail was a hole.

An internet search was my next moved, for the information stated it could get an infection.

I will an keep eye it and hope his toe doesn’t get infected.

A Chance Encounter

There’s a huge arctic blast coming… it will be bitter cold about two weeks or longer. Uncertain, but that’s the outlook in the long-range forecast. Winter has arrived to the Great Lakes.

While it still warm, I have been preparing for these frigid temperatures will start this weekend. I headed to the grocery store to get what I needed and my medicine.

I ran into my high school teacher who taught Home Economics like cooking and sewing classes. It had been years since we last spoke.

A funny thing a few days ago I thought about her and wondered how she was doing. Then yesterday, I saw her at the store.

The brief visit brought back memories of high school. She taught me various lessons about life. After the chance encounter, I realized made impression with her after all these years.

Looking back, I’m glad I am no longer in high school. School life wasn’t easy, which I’ve discussed in earlier blog posts. It was a nice visit and catching up with someone from my past. I hope to see her again.
