Epilepsy setback… sshhh!

Well, I had another episode (seizure) Julia was out shopping so I was home alone, I haven’t mentioned it as she is off to visit her dad, in America on Wednesday and I don’t want to worry her.

It is not all bad as the very next day I went fishing and had a good day. 🙂

Some of my catch…

swanspool fish may 13 003 bream 002 bream 003 bream 005 swanspool fish may 13 001

The top four are Bream (I think) they could be a hybrid? They could be silver Bream? The bottom one is a scabby old Tench.

Whatever the type or size of fish or even whether I catch or not, I enjoy going fishing. I get to relax and forget about other stuff for a while.




The featured dog today is from Black Retriever X Rescue

Breed: Maremma x teddy bear
Size: medium
Age: 9 years
Apollo arrives with us from Italy on May 11th.  He is a calm, gentle, watchful guy who has spent all his life – until the past few weeks – kennelled in a terrible Italian shelter with no bedding, no heating and no outside run. He had never felt the grass under his feet. Despite this, Apollo has learned fast. He can now walk on a lead, takes treats, travels OK in the car, and gets on extremely well with other dogs (has even started playing!)  He is still a little wary of being stroked and he has not get been introduced to home life. His idea of bliss would a quiet country home where he can chill outside during the day and watch the world go by – with a nice other dog or dogs that can show him the ropes and help introduce him to living indoors.  He won’t, incidentally, wander off so – and we don’t often say this! – would be fine in a home that doesn’t have totally secure land.
Apollo is fully-vaccinated, neutered, wormed, flea-treated and has a current Pet Passport.   He will be fostered in Derbyshire.

About Mick C Gorman

Slightly damaged old bloke who is plodding on with more than a little help from a great wife. I have been married for 36 years and have 2 grown up children. I did the usual thing and replaced children with dogs when the nest became empty, best thing I ever did (apart from getting married of course). Life has taken a few interesting turns so far but this Epilepsy thing beats the lot! I love lots of things but in the past have never really stuck with them long enough to be good at them, I am trying harder to be better at a few things rather than okay at loads of things. There is still plenty of time. :-D
