Ernie and Wally together

Hey everybuddy.  Wally here along with Ernie.  We’re going on hiatus for a little while.  Our typist…aka the mom…is having surgery tomorrow to get a new hip.  Apparently the one she has now is worn out.  So since we aren’t very adept at using the ol’ laptop…we just like laying on it…we’re forced to take a little blogging break until the mom is feeling better.  We might be able to convince her to do some blog visiting while she’s recuperating…we’ll see.

Y’know, she’s kinda stressed out about all of this, so if you could spare some purrs, prayers or good thoughts that everything goes well, we know she’d appreciate it.  And so would we.  We’ll post an update when we can.

We hope to be back soon!

  15. Oh no! We will definitely keep your Mom in our purrayers. And now OUR mom has something she wants to say: I work in a big church office and hear a great deal about surgeries like these with our members. You will be very surprised how fast they get you on your feet; these procedures have become so routine, it’s like clockwork now. I hope this helps you a bit to feel better.

  16. Wishing you a uneventful surgery and fast recovery! Guess this is a good time to be home, since the cold fronts from Canada finally decided to hammer us. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you, since we live in the Metro Detroit area together…well, you are on one end, and me on the other, but maybe there is something over here that you need over there…I’ll drive to you on a weekend. Take care, and let us know how you are doing. Wally, Ernie and Zoey…you be nice to your typist…er, momma…and give her lots of purrs!
