As you may have gathered things haven’t worked out quite as I would have liked this year. In late Spring, when it became apparent Maisie wasn’t as happy as she had been on the hills I decided to set up a new blog, “Falling out the Ugly Tree”, to remove us from the hillwalking associations of “Where The Fatdog Walks” and to hopefully see us into the next few years of our “tail”- telling co-existence. Sadly I began this new blog only days before Maisie’s diagnosis and a month before her passing. I have to admit to finding it difficult to write material for that blog as its beginnings cover what was a very sad time for us. For reasons of what’s left of my sanity I’ve decided to abandon “Falling out the Ugly Tree”. I don’t think I can go back there.
So…I’ve moved back into the dust laden offices of the old Fatdog Broadcasting Corporation for the time being. An odd choice you may think given its associations – but the FBC was a good place to be. One of my distinguished visitors once described it as being “never knowingly on the wall” (thanks Andy ) which is what this blog has always tried to be. A good place to begin again.
We have a couple of changes to our lifestyle coming up and because of this there will need to be changes to the blog as well…quite a lot of changes actually…even the title may go! In the coming weeks and months you will see a number of modifications. Please do not adjust your monitors. As time passes the reasons for the changes will become all too apparent.
One of the less believable changes has already happened. I have…
…taken up geocaching again!
Once you have all calmed down and stopped the accusations of “You said you’d never…!” etc. etc. I would point out that although I’ve taken it up again…I am avoiding certain types of “contact”…a bit like you would avoid, say…rabies! Just now I’m happy in my own little world which involves a couple of hours ambling each day and provides a substitute for those missing hours of doggy walking.
Anyway the next post will let you see what I’ve been up to.
Anybody out there know anything about how to stop this bloody chocolate clock?
