    Old Style Daily Wednesday 8th August 2018 8th Aug 18 at 2:54 AM
    This is an “over the garden fence” type thread where we chat about everything Old Style and maybe a little bit more. It’s a great, inspiring and motivating thread we start each day to discuss what Old Style things we’re going to do today or what we’ve achieved already. Everyone’s welcome, please do come in, put your feet up (although check the fence hasn’t just been painted first!) and join us for an Old Style natter. The more the merrier!

    As this is the Old Style Board, it would be appreciated if posts could include some Old Style content. Please be aware that many people may have small screens, or SLOW internet connections, so please don’t post large pictures, or clip art – links are preferred. When you make a post, if you feel like giving it a title, that will help others that don’t have the time to read everything skim through the thread quickly but if not it's not a problem. Please do not start a new daily thread before you go to bed at night because this often leaves things confusing with two daily threads live at the same time. The idea is that a member would start each new daily thread after they get up in the morning

    Afternoon All, just a quick pop in to give all the poorlies & carers gentle hugs & healing vibes
    Hope everyone has a pleasant Wednesday.

    Rained last night so temps are much cooler today & it is very windy.

    Had a Chinese meal last night on the static boat Chinese & enough in the doggy bag for dinner tonight.

    Thanks LW and Rosyred. It doesn't matter if the vet is male or female, she will walk into the place quite happily and will be friendly to everyone but as soon as she is lifted on to the table she goes into a frenzy.

    I've sent the details of the chamomile to Laura as she probably has some already - she has a set of homeopathic remedies she uses regularly.

    I am just putting this out there to bring a smile to your faces
    whilst chatting to my 84 year old mother tonight she asked me where she could buy G strings from it transpires she doesn't actually know what they are but my girls wear them and she thinks that they are skimpy(does anyone else actually use this word anymore) she says her regular knickers are irritating her psoriasis

    Ziggypup got the all clear from the vet yesterday thank goodness. Since she had a painful ear infection a few months ago she is terrified of the vet's table. She climbs up your front like a cat and Laura said that she even did it last night without any support from DD. I don't know what we can do about it, any ideas LW. She's treated on the floor now but that might not work all the time.

    Our old dog had exactly the same fear after an ear infection, the vet suggested popping in every now and then and putting her on the table, he would give her a treat or two and then off we would go, it took several goes at just popping in for treats but she got there in the end, even after she has a treatment for anything give her a treat and she should start to 'like' the vets eventually, speak to the vets and see if they are happy to give it a try.


    Hugs to you and Steve xx
