Happy Birthday Pepe!

The Elder Stateman of the Family is 10 years old today!

It’s hard to believe how he has grown, and the struggles we have endured together, hopefully he will be with us for a while longer.

Our concern has moved on, now it is Nala, the other day Marcela noticed some growths on Nala’s lower lip, they stood out because they were pink, against her black lip.

Off we went to the Vet, who examined her, and found some rather big growths on the roof of her mouth. He said he believed that she had Canina Viral Papillomas, which he said 90% of the world’s dog catch, a surprise to me, as I have had dogs all my life, and never heard of this, I guess my dogs were just lucky.

The Vet, said, most dogs recover on their own, but Nala’s is more serious and will require surgery to remove them, followed by vaccination, and continued treatment, until she gets the all clear, yet another another expensive time ahead, anyway she goes for surgery on Monday.

In the mean time, she can’t understand what all the fuss is about, as we caught it early enough, before pain sets in.

I now have all the parts for my trailer lighting, so this morning, after burning all the tree trimmings in a garden fire, I started by stripping both lights and the cabling from the trailer.

I am changing the whole system from 7 pin to 4 pin, which means the trailer rear lights will also be the turn signals, that meant buying an adaptor, so the cables from the lights on the car, will change at the adaptor, and continue to the trailer lights. I have bought a trailer cable from Amazon, here in Colombia, they install individual cables then wrap them in tape, anything to create more work!

Marcela is out in the car this afternoon, I didn’t want to risk cocking up the car lights, by blowing fuses etc. so I will continue the process tomorrow, weather allowing.

Along with my trailer parts, yesterday another gadget arrived, I have bought a set of four camera lens for my Smartphone, it’s only a cheap set, but I have my 360° Ricoh, and don’t want to spend out on another camera, so will see what I can do with my Poco X4 Pro.

The lens are:

Left to right, Wide angle, Fisheye, and Kaleidoscope, the fourth is Macro, not sure how much use I will get from that, but you never know. For a total amateur like me, these don’t seem too bad, although I am sure the Experts amongst you will disagree, but starting out, they will do for me.

Oh well, time to go and make a fuss of my four legged Kids! I hope you all have a great week-end.
