the day that was

We had a doggie setback this a.m. I let him in from his morning constitutional and when I went to pet him, I somehow knocked him off balance and he sat down. It hurt him. A lot. He wouldn’t put any weight on his leg for hours. Called the vet and since we have an appointment for the stable tomorrow, I was to baby him and let him rest, and see how he does. He seems a little better now.

Barfboy struck again. Poor kid. He seems better now. I hope it stays that way.

We also got the clarinet. It’s a used Yamaha and the kid loves it. He can make some decent sound already and he’s very excited about it.

I had a story idea that involves a very specific object. It involves silver frogs with polished stones inside their mouths. They are set in a circle facing outward from each other with another stone in the middle. Something like agate or I don’t know. There’s a handle on it. I’m not sure what it is or who has it or why. Except I think the frog mouths open. Just not sure when or why. But I’ll figure it out. It will be something.

    The Frogs with stones in their mouths reminded me of something. so I googled it:
    http://collections.tepapa.govt.nz/theme.aspx?irn=1350
    It is an EQ recorder from china, over 1800 years old.
