I suppose I am relatively well traveled and have lived on four different Continents, we are Brits living in Spain and have as a couple lived in India and Turkey, I was brought up as a child in The West Indies by a Bohemian Mother and grew to love nature and animals as my friends.  I began at an early age to rescue all types of animal life, goats, chickens, dogs, cats, my Beloved Mule, monkeys, lizards, a couple of monkeys and several geese (aagh)! I guess I have lost count of the sheer number and different types - got bitten frequently - but adored them all.  We have carried on in Spain doing the best we can, we have raised two litters of new born puppies thrown at birth into the trash in the last year, another older litter, and numerous cats and kittens - with the "Crisis" in Spain, animals are sadly, but understandably the bottom of the heap, their children have to be fed first.  Mike (my long suffering husband) and self have not had a day or night away for several years because of our rescued animals, one Black Retriever, One Crazy Mixed and our Darling Ricci who we raised from a few hours old alongside his three brothers who we could not part with and has grown into a Golden Retriever.  I totally abhor suffering at the hands of mankind in any shape or form, whether it be humans or animals.  I wake up in the morning and Dread the Media News.  I just Hope for a Good day, where we are all Good to Each Other and Respect our Different Views and Religion.  I have Always been respectful of the country's culture I have resided in and abided by their wishes, if I disagreed then I would make the decision not to live there.  I join You All because I truly want to make a difference.  Well, this Me, Warts and All.  Don't want to give away how ancient I am - but have rescued animals in excess of 50 Years, and that number scares me!  Will stay as young as we can, for as long as we can, because these animals need me and Mike - and we will carry on doing, what we are doing as long as we draw breath.  Off to bed with two Large Retrievers and One Large Mixed Breed - Oh and a Cranky Old Cat who has taken to "yowling" 18 hours a day!!  Love to All who reads this missive.  Margaret, Mike and the Reprobatesxxxxxx

    Dear Margaret,
    The surgery is Monday finally and it is absolutely no big deal. I have a pylonidal cyst. As it turns out, I'm just going in and out and should be up and running the next day. Never worry about my health! I have so many health problems (I have a very deficient immune system) I should have been buried a long time ago, but I'm one of those bad weeds you just can never get rid of.
    It's a gorgeous day and I know I should use it to work on the garden, but I'm compelled to go to the cat shelter, see a little kitten who is very sweet and friendly, but who didn't seem well and wouldn't eat on Thursday.  Maybe I'll be wonder woman and do both!
    I hope you've planned for a wonderful weekend?
    Thanks for your friendship. It's fun!
