White Dog made one last effort to include herself in tonight's outing then sat on my shoulder to give me advice. "Do you have a jacket in case you get cold?" "Did dad put your oxygen in the car?" "Don't overdue it, when you get tired it is time to come home." "Please be careful, I will worry until you get back." Steve and Richard were taking me out to dinner...my first restaurant outing since before I went into the hospital in June. I was a little timid and nervous but we had all decided that it was time for me to exit my hermit's cave and to start getting out more. We went to a small low-key Bistro with great food and live music. The autumn night was perfect and my strength good. In fact, I made it the entire time without using oxygen! It was wonderful to get out for awhile but then I began to miss my worried white fluffy caregiver and knew it was time to wrap tings up for the night. White Dog checked me out thoroughly when I returned home...until she sniffed the box I was carrying. "Yes, White Dog, I brought you home a lamb shank!" Certain that all was well, off she went to enjoy her piece of the night.

Lamb shanks sounds delicious Siku. Hope you enjoyed it.

Thank you for your concern. Me and my hoomans have been safe in our house. Our country have been experiencing the worst calamities these past few weeks. 2 consecutive typhoons that caused floods and landslides. I guess the prediction about the Philippines being the country which will be worst-hit by climate change (because of its location) is true. We just didn't expect it will come this soon.

It is always good to have a change of scenery - glad it was such an enjoyable evening. We are sure the white dog hope you do it again and bring home another taste of something yummy.

Hugs, the OP Pack
