Dr Carla HIbbs and Assistant Miranda with Gizmo at Eye Care for Animals

It was time for Gizmo’s six-month eye checkup today at Eye Care for Animals and he got a good report – he can go nine months to his next one. He has Pigmentosa Keratitis in both eyes (a brown pigment band runs across the center of each eye) and fluid in the cornea of his left eye (the one that got damaged when he was younger) that gives it a white appearance. Dr Carla Hibbs said his condition was stable enough to go a longer period. He will still have to have multiple eye drops and ointments applied morning and evening, for the rest of his life. But those are to keep infections down and maybe keep the conditions from getting worse. Continue reading Gizmo eye doctor. Texas Roadhouse dinner. Newsletter.

A new car key. Dinner at Outback Steakhouse.

key fob
This is the replacement key fob for our Equinox

Recently the Unlock button on my key fob for our Equinox got pushed too hard and the rubber cover got depressed inside and broken out. I was able to slightly rearrange the broken cover to be able to use the unlock function, but I figured it was only a matter of time before it broke out completely and I would not be able to use my key fob to unlock the doors. I have heard that dealers charge from $150-300 to make a new key fob for you so I did some research online and found I could avoid going that route. I bought a pair of blank key fobs on Amazon for less than $29 for the pair. Continue reading A new car key. Dinner at Outback Steakhouse.

Dinner at Via Delosantos: Dave, Elaine, Bill Russell, Joyce Garcia, Sharlene Froberg, Wayne Moderson, Pete Petersen

A few weeks ago Wayne Moderson mentioned a Mexican restaurant on Central between Dunlap and Hatcher called Via Delosantos. He thought it was one of the better ones he had been to. We have seen the place many times before driving by, but the outside appearance did not attract us so we ignored it. We owed Pete Petersen a dinner out in payment for taking care of our dogs while we were gone and asked him where he wanted to go. He had never been to Via Delosantos either and said that was the place. So while in the pool this afternoon we set that up and also invited Bill Russell and Wayne Moderson. We stopped at the Park office to ask Sharlene Froberg something and invited her as well. She had been invited to dine at her sister Joyce Garcia’s house but called and said they would join us as well. Continue reading Via Delosantos supper. Hernia diagnosis. Wound still infected.
