superb news!


dear readers, i have good news! and this is really good news, not the 'almost sold the house ' sort of news. uncle martin is what is known as a 'perfect match' for himself! this means that not only does the blood not argue but the kidney will not argue either! the peeps are over the moon (a saying, dear readers, which means 'pretty chuffed').

it is surprising that the internal organs of uncle martin are not bitter. by all accounts himself used to steal uncle martin's food in their youth, in particular his chips. it just goes to show that crime doesn't pay. uncle martin, the victim of the theft, is a fine healthy specimen, whereas himself, the perpetrator of nefarious acts, is crumbling.

anyway, soon himself will be in possession of a new kidney. they will leave his old ones where they are so he will have three. hopefully he will feel very much better soon.

herself has asked me to thank our readers for all your support and kindness. it means a lot...

I feel like a complete dolt! I've taken since last summer to re-do my blog roll. And I show up just in time to hear THIS NEWS!

I am, from far away, SO glad to hear it. If you and your family ever make it to the states...(I would buy you a drink but that hardly sounds kidney-friendly) I will take you all out for the BEST GLASS OF WATER you've ever tasted!

I curse my evil modem for being non-functional yesterday and not allowing me to read this a moment sooner. That is so fabulous!!!!

Oh, I was checking to see who else had commented here, as I knew I had done, but blogger must have eaten mine. (I probably got the word verification thingy wrong and didn't realize. I do that.) We did HUGE BIG HAPPY DANCES way over here in Kentucky!!!

smiles from Patience and the whippets, too
