The Cone of Shame

Tiger Lily post surgery

Kilkenny Castle

Kilkenny from castle grounds  

Early Tuesday morning Strider and Tiger Lily took a fateful ride to the vet office for 'the surgery which shall not be named.'  Strider was less traumatized than Tiger Lily due in part to the fact that he did not have to wear the cone of shame.  We are supposed to keep the cone on her for 2 weeks.  Not going to happen.

Yesterday we took the Grandmas to Kilkenny, Ireland to look at our second castle of the week.  The first was Malahide which is about 5 minutes from our house.  Kilkenny is about 1 1/2 hours south/southwest of Dublin.  The drive was beautiful and so was the town. 

Today I drove the Grandmas to Tesco.  Before we left Davis wanted to know what he would inherit in case we didn't make it back.  He's grounded.  No one was injured in the process and we got back alive.


  1. YOU drove the Grandmas?!?!?!?!? Congratulations! By the time I get to Dublin you'll be a pro. Will you come pick me up at the airport? Oh, and please pick another background for your blog :)

  2. Yes, I'll be ready to drive. I will try to change the background.
