Lumpy knee

As if there wasn't enough to worry about, Herbie has something that isn't quite a scab, and isn't a tick either, a small round lump just under the skin, about the size of a piece of lead shot. The vet can't see us till Friday morning, because it's not an emergency. I never tell them that things are urgent unless I'm pretty darn sure, but I worry anyway.

Snow predicted for tomorrow night, and the following night, and the one after that. I've got one new book to read, thanks to Borders closing down and everything is now half price, but it's sad to see the empty shelves, the last few books huddled together like refugees. It was once the bright future of book-selling, but now... It's my own fault for buying books from Amazon. RIP Borders UK.

Graham is totally bereft over Borders closing. It will probably spoil his Christmas!
Try not to have negative thoughts over the small lump. "Scrappy" had something which I would have described in the same way, and it was benign. He will be alright - he is "Wonderdog".

We're hoping that Herbie is just getting lumpy and bumpy -- how long can a poor boy be expected keep his svelte shape? Bridget has a few of those as well -- the vet has us watching them -- most are just fatty tissue growth.

Sorry to hear about Borders over there. In Seattle the Borders stores are aweful. Better to go to an independent bookstore for selection.

Take care and keep warm in your snowy weather! Hugs!
