hey @tim33z sorry to hear about Chloe, i feel your pain in seeing her feel like she is missing out. I think i missed earlier conversations on this, what happened to her?

Are these all your pups?
She had a luxating patella initially (kneecap would pop out, but then pop back in place). This caused the arthritis. After this surgery, about 6 months later, she blew her ACL which was another 12 weeks of rest.

What i wrote above probably makes it seem worse than she is, she really is a top dog with "hopefully" many more years in her yet. She even has a dining station, where here bowls are raised so she doesn't bend and put stress into her back legs. I hope the new puppy doesnt wear her out!

The only one that's not mine is Bella, who is the mother in law's dog. They all get along really well and will only improve i'm sure.

After what seems like months, yesterday was the day! I think we have settled on Pippa, but might revert back to Annabelle. Chloe is the one near the couch who is 7 and Bella is outside, 11 now. Boy do we have our hands full!




Chloe had 2 leg operations last year and before this she was a mad frisbee catcher and ball retriever. She must have thought we hated her when we suddenly stopped playing with her like this, it broke my heart seeing her face when she seen another dog playing at the park. She has arthritis injections every other month and daily walks are slower and shorter.

Got a ball out for Pippa and she reminded me of Chloe as a puppy. So adorable trotting about with a ball in her gob!
Hey congrats on the cute addition to the clan mate....🤓😎

I got a new fridge so I was thinking the old could be a brew fridge.
Congratulations on the new fridge/brew fridge mate :)

I'm in the process of testing an inkbird ITC-308 temperature control...... I need to see how well it holds the set brew temperature.

It actually couldn't be a worse week for brewing without temperature control ~ saying that, it's a good week for testing with the extreme temperatures we're having now :)

@pvsampson will be happy to hear that I purchased an Olight H2R Nova headlamp.
Chose the neutral white Cree XHP 50 LED for better CRI.
2,300 lumens is a significant upgrade from my Zebralight H600 1,000 lumens neutral white LED headlamp, and also the added benefit of magnetic charging is a nice bonus.
The i3 as a freebie, along with the Black Friday price under $90 was also well received.

That is a great light. Love Olights and never had a problem with any of mine

I ended up buying 3 of them for the family for their performance and reliability. They get very hot on 2300 lumen setting but it’s very handy for lighting up the paddock. :cool:
Bought the M2R the other week when they were on special as a back up hand torch. It looks like it will be a handy unit as well. Was tempted to go the LE edition copper unit but that adds a lot of weight.

With the M3XS-UT,the M2X and each of the girls M23's anything in our paddocks have nowhere to hide. S1 Baton,from the first release batch for general duties and an I3 Eos each,mine on my keyring. I haven't bought a new light for a while and the M2 is on my shortlist for next year.

Woot Woot!

Plenty of time to wrap my daughter's copy and put under the tree. I will keep mine in the office.

Can't wait to get into it (y)

By the waters of the great grey green greasy Limpopo you certainly have a full life @Mark1966 - bean counting by dat - happy clapping on the weekends and now the best seller from nerds anonymous to occupy your evenings. My envy knows no bounds :)
