So, here’s a question for you: What have Tallulah Bankhead, Carol Channing, Minnie Driver and Justin Timberlake all have in common? Apart from being in films I mean. I’ll tell you later.
Today was a great day! I went to the fracture clinic at Frimley Park and was discharged! They don’t want to see me again. I was told, if I needed to see them, that I knew where they were but, basically, I just have to keep up the physio (forever, I assume). I think I’m their wonder patient. They are very happy with my progress and healing abilities. I told them it was the vodka.
I asked if I could have a copy of my x-rays and they let me photograph them but, stupidly, I didn’t take the one with the break! I blame the guy controlling the screen because he missed it. Anyway, this is what it looked like when the plaster came off.
Meanwhile at home…it was bitterly cold up the park this morning. Actually, it was bitterly cold everywhere. We even had small flurries of snow when I was at the hospital. But, in the park, the icy chill from Moscow was making itself felt. Not that it stopped the girls running around like lunatics. Or, maybe that was the idea.
At one stage, this dog spotted them and sneaked up on Carmen. Scared the living daylights out of her, making her scream and run around my legs. Day-z, leaping to the defence of her big, cowardly sister, then chased the poor thing across the park and back to its owner.
Cold or not, it was still beautiful and the girls loved it.
I also had fun with mum, when I rang this morning. Using a wonderful little web-tool called join.me, I was able to control her PC across the Internet. Sadly I wasn’t able to fix her Skype problem but we’re investigating other possibilities. We were able to play with the PC because poor dad was once more in hospital. Hopefully he’ll be out in a few hours.
And, finally, what do Carol Channing, Minnie Driver and Justin Timberlake have in common? Well, they all had a birthday today. Tallulah would have been 110 (had she not died in 1968), Carol was 91, Minnie 42 and baby Justin a very young 31.
