Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
Huge thanks to Cie who gave me this wonderful Sunday Selections image.
The meme was then continued by River at Drifting through life. Sadly she has now stepped aside (though she will join us some weeks), and I have accepted the mantle.
The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent. Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to me. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.
As usual I am running with a theme. In my absence, as well as the Balloon Spectacular, my city held its annual Enlighten Festival. Many of the buildings in our Parliamentary Triangle were illuminated and food and music were also there. I will take you there (probably) next week.
This week I am going to share some inflatable fun from the festival that was installed in a usually dull area of the city. I have no doubt they were lit up at night, but I saw and enjoyed them in the day time - with no crowds.
They had even added (fake) grass to the area, though during the day at least it was fenced off and couldn't be walked on. Signs about the exhibits were also unaccessible. Sigh.
And in other news: We took Batty back to the vet last week for his first post surgery check up. We got good news and bad. His kneecap is much improved and the tendon appears to be tracking well. However on the night before we took him back he opened the wound and is now on antibiotics. Fingers continue to be crossed. His next check up is in ten days time.
Odie misses him but is bonding strongly with us. He also seems to like not having to guzzle his food if he wants any (Batty is a very food oriented cat).
I also had medical appointments. Shortly before Christmas my neurologist told me that my MS was active again, that there were new lesions on my brain and the damage was permanent. He prescribed new medication to hopefully stop the progression. When I went back to see him this week the news wasn't great. The MS is still active and he believes it is now in my spinal chord. Another MRI (which I loathe) to track the extent of the damage and new (heavy duty) medication. Which I cannot start taking until the results of extensive blood tests (8 vials) are back and I have had the MRI. It appears my 'new normal' is yet to be defined.
I hope your weeks are filled with health, and quirky fun.
Hi EC - I do love the inflatable fun ... pity about the descriptions ... but at least you were there without the crowds. But what a nuisance about the MS - I feel for you ... though you are a tower of mindful strength - good luck with the various tests - before you can settle with your new normal.ReplyDelete
So pleased Batty is improving, while Odie is settling in with you - I guess separate feeding places in future. With many thoughts and hugs - Hilary
Hilary Melton-Butcher: I have no idea why it was fenced off during the day, but was glad to see it anyway. And thank you on re the MS nuisance. The Batty/Odie feeding issue is a challenge. Odie likes to eat a little bit and come back to it. Odie puts his head down, bull dozes and looks for more - and if it is accessible to Odie it is also accessible to Batty (or will be once he is out of confinement). I will have to give it some thought.Delete
Such wonderful and spectacular inflatables! I love how your city brings in many events throughout the year. Thank you for sharing the bounty with the rest of us.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry to hear about the hiss and spit medical woes you are having to navigate... and the aggravation of time you have to spend to even get answers. I hope that the "new normal" will be a bit better than what you're probably expecting at the moment.
How to keep Batty from jumping and not undoing the mending process? Yikes. Hopefully the antibiotics will ward off any infection he might have self-inflicted. I'm glad Odie is weathering the changes in a more serene manner at least.
Please take good care of yourself and know that we appreciate all that you do and all that you are.
River Fairchild: Thank you. When we got the kittens we were told that Odie 'needed' his brother. It seems that was another fib. He is managing pretty well. Keeping Batty confined limits his opportunity to jump but as he continues to improve (fingers crossed) it will get more challenging.Delete
I do love that my city is art focussed. And am more than happy to share the fun.
Who knows what the new normal is going to look like but my father told me that I was/am more stubborn than stains so I will manage. Hugs.
"Signs about the exhibits were also unaccessible." That's just really dumb. What the point of having signs?ReplyDelete
You and Claudia, plaques in the brain. Someone needs to come up with a plaque remover soon.
Mike: I assume that the fences were removed after dark, but wish that the signs had been accessible all of the time. A brain cleanser/healer would be more than welcome. For rather a lot of people. Please give Claudia my best wishes.Delete
I'm so sorry about your MS being into your spine. This is such a serious disease. I hope that the new meds can slow down the progress for a long time. The waiting for the results of tests can be nerve racking. I have two nieces with that disease.ReplyDelete
Little Batty is living up to his name. The little stinker for opening his surgery wound. I'm glad that his kneecap is tracking well. Lets hope that he will not need the other side done.
Your city is very art oriented with all the outdoors displays that are displayed throughout the year. It must cost the city a lot of money every for the outdoor arts alone, not to mention the interior arts exhibits.
Thanks for sharing your art with us.
Get well, hugs.
Julia: Thank you. MS was not on my wish list but if you have to get an incurable disease there are worse ones about. I have been pretty lucky so far too.Delete
Our city is art oriented, which I love. I have no doubt it isn't cheap but the city hopes (and probably does) to make up for the cost with increased tourism and money spent at the events.
Oh dear, that's bad news. What rotten luck. Damn and blast, why can't we live our life out in peace.ReplyDelete
What a colourful display of scary creatures though. I am glad that you can still go out and admire what is around you.
Take care and best wishes.
Friko: Thank you. It is more effort to get out and about at the moment, but I am a beauty/whimsy/fun addict and will continue to seek (and find) it.Delete
I am sorry for your medical news and that for Batty. The inflatable exhibition is interesting. Sending hugs.ReplyDelete
e: Thank you. I was really pleased to come across the inflatable exhibition and to spend some time wandering round it. I am also very pleased that Batty is improving - and hope to follow suit.Delete
It's so not fair. You're having such a tough time of it, EC. I do, sincerely, feel for you. My thoughts and wishes are with you.ReplyDelete
I hope from now on only good news comes you way. Cuddles to your two furry mates, and hugs to you, from me.
Lee: Thank you. Hugs and cuddles to you and Shama as well.Delete
It all looks very jurassic and rather well done really. Oh yes, put details of what people are viewing at each exhibit, but fence the details off from the people. Weird.ReplyDelete
I am sorry to hear of the progression of your disease. Most unwanted, I am sure. We'll see what the marvels of modern medicine can do for you.
Andrew: I thought the sign issues were truly weird too but enjoyed the show even from a place of ignorance. No, it wasn't what I wanted to hear - but could be much worse.Delete
Prayers for you! Not the news you wanted to hear but there's no need to lose hope.ReplyDelete
Batty needs to catch a break!
Very prehistoric displays. Bet they were cool at night.
Alex J. Cavanaugh: I am sure it was good at night, but the day time treat was pretty impressive too. Batty does indeed need to catch a break. Fingers tightly crossed. And thank you. Hope is a fragile essential.Delete
I'm so glad that you are back, Sue (and I see that I already missed last Sunday's post), but sad about the not so good news about your health. This certainly isn't easy. I'm sending you a heartfelt hug.ReplyDelete
The inflatable art is impressive and quite amazing. It's so interesting to see all the events and art your city is coming up with and we are so lucky to have you who shares it with us.
Hopefully Batty will be better soon as well.
Carola Bartz: Thank you. I do love so many of the shows put on by and in my city. We discovered Enlighten late, but make a point of going each year. I do hope that Batty continues to improve - and that he doesn't need another operation.Delete
You certainly have lots going on in your city. Thank you for sharing all the fun.
I'm sorry to hear you are suffering with your health and am sending virtual hugs. I hope Batty will recover and stop causing you extra worry which you could do without.
Ellie Foster: Sadly worry is one of my talents. You are right though, I would like not to worry about Batty. He is improving and I hope the improvement continues. And thank you.Delete
I am very lucky at the delights on display in my city and very happy to share them.
I'm so glad to hear that Batty is gradually getting better. I'm sure that he's missing you, and Odie, and will be happy to be able to come home for good.ReplyDelete
I really like the beautiful inflatable critters - what an interesting city you live in, EC - I especially like the purple ones, and the 'flying' insects, and the red (?) tigerish beast. How I'd love to see them in person!
I hope that the new medication will do its job well, and that you will be able to continue to enjoy the sights of the city, and all the interesting events that you are kind enough to share with us. Kia kaha!
Alexia:Thank you. It was a fun installation wasn't it? I went into the city last week and it was already gone and the square it had been in looked very dull.Delete
Batty is home with us - but has to be confined in a small area where he cannot jump, run or play. Which is difficult for us all.
I hope that the blood tests are clear and that I will be able to take the new medication. Fingers crossed - for me and for the rest of the household.
I also am glad to hear that Odie is finally bonding with you, and that Batty might one day be all better. But so sad to hear of your ongoing health issues. If it's not one thing, as they say, it's another. I am hoping that awful MRI goes quickly and gives good news.ReplyDelete
DJan: Life is full of such things and I have been pretty lucky. Odie has bonded with us big time over the last few weeks and has become a loving sook. And Batty is getting better - which I hope continues.Delete
Dinosaurs and other things of that era! It must be so fabulous when lit at night. I'm so very sorry to hear of your MS progression, one more thing to bring up when I eventually get to heaven and have words with whoever is in charge up there.ReplyDelete
I'm glad Odie gets to enjoy his food now and am confident Batty's antibiotics will work and he will soon be joining Odie at the food bowls again.
River: I am sure it was fabulous at night, but it was impressive during the day too. Batty has another four weeks to go before he can challenge Odie at the food bowls again. Like you, I hope (so much) that the antibiotics do the trick. And thank you too.Delete
Once again, words don't come easy to me. Thus, again: I wish I were a magician. The peace of the night, dear Sue.ReplyDelete
Sean Jeating: Thank you. Those words that you said you struggled to find mean a lot to me.Delete
What a beautiful festival!ReplyDelete
My heart goes out to you, i know you do not believe in prayer so much, but i am thinking of and praying for you.
messymimi: It is a beautiful festival - and an annual treat for us. Thank you.Delete
And i am so concerned about you, i forgot to leave my "calling card."Delete
My selections are over here.
messymimi: I am sorry. I didn't mean to worry you - and have already seen and enjoyed your Selections.Delete
Sorry to read about your MS progressing, hopefully the new medication will be beneficial.ReplyDelete
Batty, hopeful will be ok and the antibiotics do their job well.
What a wonderful exhibition in your city, must be wonderful to see in person. Thank for sharing.
Margaret D: Thank you. I hope that when (and if) I go on the new medication it does the trick. I also hope that Batty will be ok. He still has a month in confinement to go through yet..Delete
Enlighten is a wonderful thing to see and I am glad that I was able to see this aspect of it (even without the lights).
What incredible inflatables. So often your photographs and descriptions make me want to hop in my car and revisit Canberra. Batty the scallywag! I hope your new normal turns out to be as good, or better, than your current normal - I'm not meaning to sound trite, just hoping you are able to take the new medication and that it proves to be super efficacious.ReplyDelete
Kim: Thank you. As you know our capital gets a lot of bad press - which I think is undeserved. Fingers are crossed for Batty (and a little for me too).Delete
Elephant's Child, I am still wishing Batty well. I am so sorry to hear his wound opened, though. I truly hope he will leave the wound alone and that those antibiotics will help.ReplyDelete
Elephant's Child, I am also wishing you well. I am so sorry to hear what you have been going through. A good person like you does not deserve to be going through that.
I too am going through some things that are not so good, but I am just trying to think positive.
Lon Anderson: Thank you. From Batty and from me. I hope you can come through the things in your own life that are not good too.Delete
It's interesting that they chose extinct creatures for these displays. Sadly, we are adding to their choices daily. The news about your health is dreadful, Sue. How you hold up under these circumstances is beyond me, except to say that you have no choice. You face it with such resolve, however. MS is a terrible, unrelenting enemy. Much love from Miriam and me.ReplyDelete
David M. Gascoigne: You are right that we are adding to the extinctions which makes me mourn and rage (far more than I do for my own issues). Huge thanks to you and to Miriam.Delete
Hello - just love all those inflatables. I just did a scientific survey of what people here in Boston think of Canberra. 100% agree that it is a wonderful city with more art than we have seen anywhere else. (and yes, the "n" in this survey might have been - well - 1 - but that 1 was representative I am sure). I also admire your readers: many good suggestions here. Plaque remover is definitely what so many people need. Here is a gloomy comment from Gore Vidal: We are entering our hospital years. On the other hand if I understand things correctly at least you and your fellow wonderful Canberra citizens are entering cooler weather, The antics of Batty. I would like to know what Odie thinks of all of this.ReplyDelete
Frances: The inflatables were a heap of fun weren't they? I am so glad that my city is 'arty'. So very glad. We are indeed (slowly) going into the cooler months which I will welcome. The other household residents are not so sure. Odie sniffs at the door behind which Batty is incarcerated and then comes out and jumps into the nearest lap. One on one attention seems to suit him, though we don't play as well as a healthy Batty.Delete
Those are some colorful inflatable, it seems the creator must have worked hard on them with all those little details.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry to hear about your MS. I hope you'll get better news.
Have a lovely day.
lissa: Even in the daylight they were colourful - they must have been spectacular at night. I am very grateful to the creators. And thank you too.Delete
The infalatables are brilliant. We could do with something like that in Manchester (apart from the giant Father Christmas that appears in December).ReplyDelete
Plastic Mancunian: They were great weren't they? Fortunately we don't see giant inflatable Santa Claus. Or haven't yet anyway.Delete
Those inflatables are great, I kept thinking "this one is my fave". I'll keep my fingers crossend for the kittys and even more for you.ReplyDelete
Charlotte (MotherOwl): Thank you. I 'think' I liked the giant cat best but like you I kept changing my mind.Delete
Dearest Child, I am so sad about the MS. I was hoping for good news.ReplyDelete
Thank you for these whimsical creatures which I'm sure look very dramatic at nights. They are delightful. Brilliant.
I'm sending you lots of healing vibes. xx
neena maiya (guyana gyal): We all need more fun in our lives and the inflatables were certainly that. Thank you for your healing wishes.Delete
As fun and colorful as those quirky inflatables are, they are definitely overshadowed by the news of your MS. I am SO sorry to read this. I hope your new normal becomes less frightening over time. I also hope Batty improves. Sadly Squiggles is a bit like Batty and tries to eat anything in sight.ReplyDelete
I am virtually hugging you tight and letting you know you are LOVED.
Bleubeard and Elizabeth: I am sorry that my health news overshadowed the fun of the inflatables. Very sorry. Odie is a grazer and likes to come back to food - which Batty tries to ensure isn't possible. How do you manage the feeding difficulties?Delete
I feed them in different rooms and different food. I still have to watch Squiggles because he sometimes tries to visit Bleubeard's bowl if all his food hasn't been eaten.Delete
Good grief. The first Failed to Publish in days!
Bleubeard and Elizabeth. That will be a challenge. Odie often takes several hours to finish his food. Having a little bit, wandering off and coming back to it. Batty puts his head down and goes for it.Delete
I'm so sorry to hear MS is attacking you all over again. What a crappy rotten disease! I hope you (and Batty) get some better health news soon.ReplyDelete
I love the colourful sculptures - what fun! Thanks for sharing them with us. :-)
Diane Henders: Weren't they great? I am a bit sorry that we didn't go back in and see them at night, but even in daylight they made me smile. Batty seems to be doing better - which is wonderful.Delete
Oh shoot I hate that diagnosis of active MS again, EC. I'm so sorry. Oh gosh it can be hard to get cats to remain still enough to heal up properly. Is it Batty's food obsession that did in his knees so young? As in, too fat too young while still forming? Or just genetics?ReplyDelete
I love those fabulous creatures you photographed, especially the first ones! I remember reading an article on MS. It was years and years ago. A doctor's wife had it and he was obsessed with finding a cure. He came to believe MS was caused by the inability of the sufferer's brain to dissipate heat normally. He thought maybe the tangled vessels at the back of many MS patient brains might be the cause and thought if they could be combined or widened, something like that I can't recall it all now. I thought when I read it how about just your wife wears an ice neck wrap, to cool the blood first a bit before it enters the brain. I think his wife died shortly after he wrote his theory up.Delete
Strayer: The vet seems to think that Batty's problems are congenital - which sadly puts Odie at risk too. However it was also made clear that he will need to be kept to a healthy weight for the rest of his life - which won't make him happy. He is losing a bit of weight at the moment despite his inactivity because he can't scoff Odie's food as well as his own.Delete
Strayer: I don't think they will find a cure for MS until they find a cause. Many of us (me included) have trouble with heat but that is a symptom rather than a cause. I loved the fabulous creatures too and was so very glad that my LL commitments took me past them.Delete
The inflatable art is wonderful, so colourful, I did enjoy your photographs.ReplyDelete
I am so sorry to read about your MS progression, I do so hope that your medical team will be able to help with the new medication, once the further tests are done.
I am sending lots of positive thoughts and healing wishes across the miles.
All the best Jan
Lowcarb team member ~Jan: It was a lovely splash of colour wasn't it? Thank you for your positive thoughts and healing wishes.Delete
I think I met some of them in a dream recently.ReplyDelete
J Cosmo Newbery: Good to see you in the blogosphere. I hope you are ok. What sort of a dream? A good one I hope.Delete
Lovely photos. I am sorry to hear about you MS and can only hope that there is medication that can help you. I will put you in my prayers and send you many blessings,ReplyDelete
RasmaSandra: Thank you.Delete
Oh, that is such bad news you shared today. I am so sorry to read this. Take care, my friend. I have you in my thoughts and prayers.ReplyDelete
gigi-hawaii: I have been lucky for years, so I really can't complain. Thank you.Delete
So sorry to hear about the MS returning.. sending prayers your way.ReplyDelete
Those inflatable look great.
Hena Tayeb; The inflatables were great. And brightened my day. MS never goes away, it is just active at the moment. Drat it.Delete
So many wonders! What fun, especially that purple dino.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing;)
Sandra Cox: They were a heap of fun weren't they? Hugs received and reciprocated.Delete
I heard someone say, 'normal is just a setting on a dryer.' Isn't that the truth!! We all have so many different things going on in our lives. I hope they new medication works well for you and doesn't have negative side effects. Hoping all is well for Batty. Our girl (she was 10 when we adopted her years ago) woke us up howling (she doesn't howl). She was batting at her mouth. From all I can tell from research, she may have a cavity? We'll see what the doc says. Crossing my fingers it's nothing serious. She's a big part of our joy here and the teen loves her like no other. The inflatables are interesting!ReplyDelete
mail4rosey: I really, really hope that the vet can help your girl. Cavities are no fun - whatever your species.Delete
I'm so sorry to hear you are having so much medical tests and not so great news. I hope the new medication can help a bit.ReplyDelete
Hopefully Batty will heal soon.
I love the pictures. Those are just fantastic.
Mary Kirkland: Thank you. Batty worried us yesterday but seems better today. Our fingers stay crossed. I am glad that you enjoyed our inflatables.Delete
thecontemplativecat here. I am not anonymous. Those dinosaurs are utterly amazing. Lighting up at night must be spectacular. MS, sigh. It is such an insidious disease. I am so sorry that it is digging in deeper.ReplyDelete
My migraine status has been upgraded to darn dangerous. 3.8 times more likely to have a stroke than the rest of the population.
thecontemplative cat: I am sorry you are also battling on the health front. Migraines are nasty beasts and I am glad that mine are much, much rarer than they were. And yes, the inflatables would have been incredible at night.Delete
I'm sorry about the MS, I was just speaking with my friend last night who also is battling. She's tried experimental treatments to no avail. She's currently in a new protocol and hopeful. We shall see. Those sculptures are amazing! I love when art pops up in mundane places.ReplyDelete
Juli: Thank you. Good luck to your friend. The inflatables certainly brightened (temporarily) a very dull area of the city.Delete
Wow ES...that's sad for me to read about your MS. I wish you so well. And Batty too. Life is tough for us these days isn't it? Those inflatable sculptures really made me smile though, thank you! ♥ReplyDelete
Rain: Thank you. There are much worse diseases about than MS. Our fingers remain tightly crossed for Batty. He is nearly half way through his period of incarceration and I can I think/hope see signs of improvement. The inflatables made me smile too. Rather a lot.Delete
Oh gosh, EC. I was so enthralled with the pictures I didn't read your last couple of paragraphs. It makes me want to rail at the universe and shout unfair, unfair. Please know you and Batty have a gazillion friends in your corner cheering for you and sending you all kinds of love and good wishes. HugsReplyDelete
Sandra Cox: Thank you. I am endlessly grateful and appreciative of my blog friends. I also forgot about my health issues while I delighted in the inflatables. Which is a very good thing. Hugs.Delete
So good to hear from you, but sorry to read about your medical situation. I hope things improve for you once they get you regulated on your new meds. And hope things improve for your kitty also. LOVED the pictures, what a fun exhibit. It made me smile. Please take care.ReplyDelete
Sandy: Thank you so much. Fingers crossed for Batty but (knock on wood) he does seem to be improving. I loved the exhibit too.Delete
Those inflatables wouldn't be my favourite kind of art but they certainly take talent to design! We're starting to see inflatable bunnies now with the approach of Easter.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear of your worsening MS. I do hope the new meds will help. I'm sure your positive attitude will help....
Anonymous: No inflatable bunnies here (that I have seen) and I suspect I would prefer these inflatables. I don't know that attitude changes much - except the way I cope (and I will take wins anywhere I find them).Delete
That was me - Molly. Having issues again with Google and commenting!Delete
Molly: How I wish that blogger/google didn't do that. Thank you for identifying yourself.Delete
Look at those three little green guys on the hunt for trouble;)ReplyDelete
Sandra Cox: They were certainly hunting weren't they?Delete
"It appears my 'new normal' is yet to be defined."ReplyDelete
Praying it will be defined better than expected. Praying for full healing.
Sandi: Thank you. Whatever my new normal is I will adapt. I have no choice.Delete
I just read that MS is now considered treatable or even curable. I know it is late in the game for you, but hopefully the new medications will stop the progression. I am pulling for you my friend. I hope you are not in pain ...ReplyDelete
As for your post ... I can't believe all of those creatures were inflatables. They are awesome and you did get great pictures even though you were not allowed on the grass (the fake grass, I should say). Good news that your kitty is healing ... it is so hard to see our little ones in pain. Take care, my friend ...
Andrea @ From the Sol
Andrea @ From The Sol: MS is now mostly treatable/controllable but not yet curable. I am hoping that the medication when and if I can go on it can stop the progression. Sadly there is pain.Delete
The inflatables were clever weren't they? And a HEAP of fun.
Batty is better but not out of the woods. You are right, it is very hard to see them suffer.
Fantastic display - I love the vibrant colours.ReplyDelete
So sorry to hear about Batty's new troubles but I am very glad his surgery helped so far.
And how I wish your own health problems were not so heavy. Hugs, my dear friend. Always.
jenny_o: Thank you chosen sister. So very much.ReplyDelete
Please read my postReplyDelete
Rajani Rehana: I will be over to visit you shortly.Delete
Have a lovely weekend
MELODY JACOB: Thank you. You have a great weekend too.Delete
Have a lovely weekend, my dear friend.ReplyDelete
Sandra Cox: Thank you - you too.Delete
this looks like a really interesting exhibition, the centipede/insect thing made me smile! It's good it's just as pretty in day as it would be at night, although a shame there were no informational signs for you to read!ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear about the health issues arising for you - I hope that you have great success with the new medication.
Mica: It was interesting. I was sorry about the signs, but enjoyed it all anyway.Delete
Looks really classic and beautiful! Love the colours ♥ReplyDelete
aussie aNNie: Those colours just popped didn't they?Delete
Well the MS news sucks. I had an MRI on my knee many years ago and didn't find it too challenging but of course, I didn't need to put my head in a noisy tube! That's a whole other level.ReplyDelete
I expected Batty's wound to be un-openable by now but I suppose it gets a solid workout at times :)
I'm glad he's better and I love all the photos, so many beautiful and quirky things for a beauty addict to look at :)
kylie: It is the enclosed head in that noisy tube that does my claustrophobic, noise averse self in. I am told the next one will take about an hour. Shudder.Delete
Batty is not supposed to be exercising. Goodness knows how he opened the wound but open it he did. Next check up on Monday.
My quirky beauty addict self was well served by that exhibition wasn't it?
I bet the kids love the inflatable dinosaurs.ReplyDelete
I am sad to hear about your MS coming back and getting worse. I hope the new meds will give you relief and a more enjoyable life. Many hugs
The Blog Fodder: The kids weren't the only ones to love the inflatable dinosaurs. Thank you. I still don't know whether I can take the medication (waiting results of a blood test).Delete
Oh my goodness, Sue! I love these inflatables ~ and I know what everything is. My favorite is Hallucigenia which is in the third photo from the the bottom. It's the weirdest looking thing, but it's a genus of Cambrian animal resembling worms. It is best known from articulated fossils in Burgess Shale-type deposits in Canada and China, and from isolated spines around the world. The other Cambrian fossil that I love is known as "the terror of the Cambrian seas: Anomalocaris. It also comes from the Burgess Shale. This creature was the largest predator that swam in Cambrian seas. It's fourth from the bottom. And I adore the T-rex. This exhibit was made for me!ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry that your MS is returning. It is a terrible affliction! May you be able to take the medicine and have easing of the symptoms! Hugs and encouragement to you, Sue!
Fundy Blue: I obviously needed you with me when I visited these inflatables. Weren't they great, and I love that they are drawn from real life. Past life, but definitely real.Delete
I bet it was fun taking all those shots. They are so fabulous. Would love to see them all in person. Thanks for sharing, Sue.ReplyDelete
Joylene Nowell Butler: It was fun - and I am glad you enjoyed them too.Delete
I do like the jogging dinosaurs. So fun and altogether charming.ReplyDelete
I'm so very sorry to hear about the MS returning. I hope you can take the new medicines and find relief. Hugs.
Nilanjana Bose: It really was a fun exhibit wasn't it? I find out whether I can take the new medication towards the end of the month. Fingers crossed.Delete
