Default Phew, What a Week ....

Gaarrrgh, Queensland is being flooded again and we've even had 6 tornadoes - I've never even heard of one in this country before, let alone one causing damage, they're just unheard of over here. There's fast water rescues & houses going under from one town to the next, and they're saying we're going to get 125kph winds - no idea what that is in mph.

I'm sat here wondering how I'll manage to evacuate 6 dogs (2 x giants) in nothing but a sarong ('coz I can't wear anything across my 10" cut and can't really move all that freely either, yet) so we're all just sat here, candles at the ready - I suppose i should gather all their harnesses & leads etc. into one easy to reach spot incase the roof decides to fly away, heaven forbid.

On the other side of the coin, sad & sorry for myself being so blimmen' laid up & in pain, the little voice in the head told me to check if my breeder had any pups available - yep, 2, but neither appealed.

I gave her a call & she confirmed she'd finished breeding (crippled with arthritis) BUT there is one last litter coming thru and she THINKS there may be a tiny, a chocolate, just what I've always dreamed of. HWMNBO is, of course, throwing the obligatory tantrum, pfft, as if I'm paying attention to that - if there is a choco tiny, it's mine, all mine. Time will tell, they're 2 weeks old & I'm not going to hassle her for info or pics, she'll send when she can. Fingers & toes crossed - 5 Chi's and that'll be me done

OOohh! Such extreme weather! Where we live, we have been so, so lucky! We keep talking about moving when we retire, in about 2 years, but I gotta tell ya - I'm afraid to leave here because we have been so lucky with the weather! It can have a big impact on your life! I hope it gets better soon for you! We've just been having extremely cold weather!

Dee don't be too hard on yourself! You just had surgery and it takes time to heal! I, too, put off going to the docs when I have a problem! I think we just figure, aww, it'll go away!

Take care and stay safe!

Fingers crossed the weather passes you over. I hope you're recovered and feeling better soon and that your chis are taking care of you! Ooh...I hope the pup of your dreams is in that litter! You must share pics if and when she sends them! Look after yourself, we worry!

Australia is getting all the weird weather at the moment - my son went back to WA from here 3 weeks ago and has already been evacuated from the gasfields he works on twice due to cyclones or theatened cyclones!!

I'm sure you are well fed up of being laid up - but every day is a day closer to getting back to normal - and maybe that pup!!! Can't wait to hear if there is a tiny chocolate one for you

Thanks girls. Well this brute of a storm has gone from northern australia, right down the east coast and is now throwing everything it's got at folks down south.

Every death that has happened so far has been from people trying to drive through flooded roads, bridges etc, even a young man on a motorbike for crying out loud - we folks here get super angry about fools doing that because they risk the lives of innocent emergency personnel in saving them or retrieving lifeless bodies. But then again, we don't know the victims circumstances either, perhaps trying to get to their own family to rescue them in such horror and ending up causing their family immeasurable grief, it's all so tragic.

There's been dozens & dozens of swift water rescues, ALL of them people who were in cars now clinging to the roof of their cars or trees after they've been swept off - how do they expect emergency workers to get to them in the torrents & all the choppers are off lifting people from the rooves of their houses.

At times like this all I can think of is the folks who lost everything 2 years ago, and in some places the levels are already over 3' higher than what they were then, AND the livestock - the horses, cattle & sheep being swept away is just heartbreaking.

Then, of course, there's 1,000's upon 1,000's of our deadliest snakes being swept down along the entire coastline & the newspapers just love to show pics of people up on their rooves with dozens of snakes trying to join them, or slithering up onto part submerged cars to escape, gaaaarrrgh. At least we haven't had the problem they had in Africa with 15,000 crocodiles on a croc farm being washed away!

Ah, the wee puppy, I'm not getting my hopes up, what will be, will be. I won't contact them for a while because they're in the heart of the floods, the poor souls.

And to think I moved up here to escape the vicious weather down south, what was I thinking!!!
