  1. I do love the etheree form, and this works nicely for Smidgey's woeful time. Happy Easter, Bridget!

    1. Thank you, Linda! Unfortunately her paw sage continues to the point that a poem is necessary. :)

    1. True that, Mary Lee! Our poor girl is really having a tough time...

  3. I have not written an etheree. I should try and I agree with Mary Lee! Poor Smidgey but I hope his paw gets better soon. Maybe there is a tiny glass sliver in there..... Janet Clare F.

    1. I highly recommend the etheree, Janet Clare! It's a fun puzzle-ish form. And yeah, the vet thinks there is actually a wood sliver in there, but they can't find it on an X-ray or ultrasound and the swelling and tenderness is so bad they can't see it during an exam. Not fun for the ol' gal.

  4. Oh, so sorry Smidgey had an ailement. I hope it is resolved by now.
