We have had several drop-in visitors once I declared myself fit again. I still cough off and on, but I'm not infectious. We met Val's mum from Edinburgh (now lives in Victoria, BC) and she kindly invited us to stay when in her area! Sad to say, Pierre and Beth's lovely standard poodle, Diablo, died just after Christmas. We were near tears! He was a lovely dog, and only 6 years old. Some of the part-time residents are here to escape the cold, snow, heavy clothes of their northern homes...it is remarkable how you just don't miss shoes, long slacks, sweaters and parkas!
Mitzi is enjoying something, maybe the wind. Her racing, jumping and nonsense has increased. Cagney plods on and probably still thinks she is crazy. Our outdoor cats have diminished by one with Ginger not showing up for over a week now. Toby and Scruff have been disappearing every day, but come running at mealtimes. At three months they are pretty adventurous...

I had received some more charms from my grand-children, and their dog as Christmas gifts. The bracelet was started by one of my daughters in 2013, and now looks:
