Austin is in 5th grade now...the same grade as Mackenzie when she came to live me for the school year...Austin started school a year early so he is only 10 years old.
He spent last Sat. night with Benjamin...They wanted me to sleep down stairs with them ...on a recliner large chair...which I did...Austin wanted cinnamon rolls for breakfast...which I made for him...then he said..."Granny, would you bring me lunch to school Wednesday? I would like a double cheese burger and med drink and fries." It is a good 20 mile drive to his school from here. One way! But I was considering it. I asked him what time his lunch was and did he want me to eat with him? Big mistake, I should not have asked. He said. "Granny, I am in 5th grade, just drop it off in the office and they will call me." He said, "Only dorks would have their Granny eat with them at school." I told him if I brought lunch not only would I eat with him but I would be wearing my Santa dress! he told me to forget it!...Then this afternoon he left a message on my cell phone saying.."Granny, this is Austin. Tomorrow we are having pizza for lunch and I like that and I have money to buy lunch. So could you bring me lunch on Thursday instead of tomorrow because I do not like what we are having for lunch that day...Thanks, BYE."
Also today Benjamin's little dog has had an ear problem for a few days. I figured it was ear mites and have been doctoring them for it. Today he was whining a little and shaking his head so I decided I would really try to clean those ears and really look at them. Picked up all 7 pounds of him and put him on the outside table. I cleaned one ear. There was no black stuff in it and it looked good...I had on gloves because I can't stand to mess with icky things...Then as soon as I touched the other ear he yelped. It was swollen inside and closed off.
I hate to go to a vet so I figured I would call Clayton...Then I thought how stupid...call a pro, Larry. Larry said it is Probably canker ear...Which it prob is. He told me to use peroxide and message it and then add baby oil...The peroxide made it open up and I am sure it will get better ...But I have been itching ever since I touched him so I am going to take a shower and scrub from Head to toe...Don't get me wrong..There is nothing on me ...but convincing my brain of that is another matter...
