Weekend Trivia: Saturday
Sorry to be so late. We have had an adventurous couple of days here. Annabelle continues to escape into the woods over the neighbor's fences (ours is too high and I guess we will have to extend it up the side line-ugh). Unfortunately, their fence was damaged by the hurricane when a tree came down on it. We never examined it, but now there is a sharp piece sticking out toward the woods and apparently Annabelle injured herself jumping back into our yard. She tore off the skin on a huge area of her inner thigh. Took her to the vet yesterday morning (she escaped in the three minutes I was brushing my teeth) and they had to perform surgery. Picked her up at 5:00, brought her home, gave her three different meds and had dinner. While we were eating, she silently got out of her collar (the Elizabethan kind they use to keep pets from pulling out stitches, etc.). She had pulled her drain out (eaten at least part of it and probably all since we haven't found it). Back to the vet by 7:30 where I sat until 11:00. Long story and I won't bore with anymore details, but I do have a sedative for her now. She has a new collar that is more like what people wear when they have a neck injury. She can still get to her leg, but if we keep her sedated (for 14 days???) we should be okay. Poor baby. It breaks my heart to see her-she is so confused.
If you are still with me, today's question has to do with pirates. I think everyone knows one particular pirate of the name of Blackbeard-one of my favorites because I used to live in North Carolina and Chuck and I vacation on Ocracoke Island. His flag was black with a skeleton on it. Do you know what the skeleton is stabbing with his spear?
