On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

Chilly night at the end of May

I was standing outside watching the chickens a few days ago when I saw a flutter on the ground and realized there was a quail taking a dust bath right in my own back yard.  I've seen quail in this area before - a whole covey walked through a friend's yard one morning while we were sitting with tea - but this was the first time I saw quail in our neighborhood.

Unfortunately a black cat that roams our fences also took note so I don't know how this story turned out.  I see the cat often, but I don't know if anyone actually owns it.  It looks sleek and healthy so is obviously getting enough to eat, but it may or may not have official owners.  The quail wouldn't care about such details....
