I don't feel like being lil ol cynical me of late, I just feel like posting a few happy snaps. Don's not so good right now with a chest infection. He has only had one chest cold since his accident in 1982 and now this one which is a worry. Quadriplegics by virtue of the injury (if you can call it "virtue) are unable to cough or vomit, so for us a simple chest cold is serious. We don't favour so called 'flu shots in our family...too often you end up with a the very flu you were trying to avoid which in cases of people with weakened conditions is as dangerous as flu...because it is flu ...duh! Watch the death rates rise in nursing homes about a week or two after they do those annual flu shots...but as I said I am not feeling cynical so back to the reason for this picture...

This is the waterfall Don dreamt up in our back yard. It started out as a bit of a pond and it grew. Its just lovely. We can't afford a pool and who wants to spend their lives cleaning one up...been there done that...but here it is so bleakly hot in summer, yours truely can just imagine a soft warm summer's evening and sitting with wineglass in hand and my feet in the water for ages...just hope I don't fall over getting up. Those sisters still talking to me are keen to visit and join me in my debauchery. Don of course will be making sure we all do all the little tasks he will dream up to make it look even better, add plants...or some more pottery snakes perhaps... some say it just makes them feel like they want to go to the toilet... but the doggie just loves his big water bowl...

That looks just beautiful, MC, but I do hope Don recovers soon from his chest infection. You've both got enough hanging about there without this added bastard thing. My very best wishes to the old rascal!
