Meg the Black Cat continues to like the box in which the Alice Cooper Box arrived...







Back to FOPP today for “Santana III” and “Borboletta” for Sid, soundtracked by my own copies of the band’s first three albums...



Of course I couldn’t resist the £5 double pack of “Amigos” and “Festival”...

On later listening, I wish I had been able to...

Hard to believe the same person could be responsible for all this music, some of it so great yet some of just so incredibly bad...

Back home and Meg the Black Cat was back in the suitcase...



Today she had been back at the vet for further tests re her overactive thyroid – good news, the normal reading is 62 (don’t ask me what of) – last time her reading was 103, today it’s down to 82...

Her medicine dose is upped ever so slightly and she’ll be back for more tests in four weeks - she was so good, once again, there was no need to knock her out - the nurses all loved her way of chatting rather than miaowing – she is such a wee sweetie...

Of course her patch has been re-shaved though – just when it was growing back too...

Not to worry...

And, touch wood, her ongoing partaking of the old brain tablets seem to be working – no episodes since November...

After some excellent Executively Produced chilli, a good chat with sister Pam – feeling a bit tired re the latest Chemo course - just four more courses to go after tomorrow's last of five tabs for this session ...

She advised she'd listened to friday's Capital Models session and was amazed at how good we sound after thirty years - cheers Pam!

After “Mock The Week” it was off to listen to today's Santana purchases, and some older stuff I already had, whilst writing this up – as mentioned above, some albums are so much better than others...

Ended the day with “Lead Balloon”...

Highlight of the Day : Meg on the mend...

Yeah good news re Meg. I just watched Lead Balloon to. It's not as funny as it used to be. Must make music soon. Caio.
