  • Hey Twinkly - Wow what a cracker and the dog looks in good shape as well. I would like to wish you the very best of luck. I understand your concerns about germs etc as I think of it everytime I go to Asda and someone is coughing and sneezing always it seems in my direction. I hold my breath, put a tissue over my mouth/nose and do an about turn if I can. Interestingly I still see Eastern ladies in the supermarket wearing surgical masks even though the alleged Bird Flu pandemic is well past. Maybe we should follow their lead.

    The thing is Twinkly if we took it to heart too much we would be confined to barracks and that's no life. You do the right thing though by packing in the good stuff to ward off the bad. .

    Once again all the best of luck for the weekend. . I don't suppose my old Staffy would get a sniff in such fine company. Aww Woof Woof

    Cheers JR

  • Thank you for your good wishes ,,you sound better ,maybe it's the brighter days ,I like the cold sunny days ..longer evenings ,hows the ruxolitinib side effects. Getting used to it? Spleen going down I hope !! My results last clinic trip were excellent ...love my new nutri blend ..smoothy s are really nice ,,

    Keep yourself in tip top fettle ....love as ever wayward son ...xx

  • Probably coz i only recently acquired my wee dog off a family member in ill health - there's an irony. She gives me a day to day purpose and although Im having a hard time with painful feet I'm not too bad on sand which is handy when you live at the seaside. The dog loves running the dunes and I can't keep up but she comes when called. So this is helping to keep me happy.

    As for the Rux Im OK on it but it has had only a limited impact on my spleen so far. Love JR

  • Hi twinkly, what a lovely looking dog! When I retire, - long way off yet unfortunately, I'll be coming to you for a little friend. Happy birthday for this month x

    How do you get on with the nutri blend? I was thinking of getting one but can't make up my mind?! One of my daughters gave me a soup maker for Christmas and I love it, I've made soup of all kinds every week since I've had it.

    Good luck for Crufts.

  • Good Luck Twinkly!! Hope you ward off the germs :-) xx

  • Good Luck at Crufts ,Twinkly,probably less likely to catch a bug amongst the dogs than in a supermarket!! That is a cracking little dog in the pic Very best wishes,and have a great time.Sally

  • Hi just to hope you have the most splendid of times and try not to worry about the rampant bugs. We made the pilgrimage for so many years to Crufts and only because we have elderly dogs now and no-one I trust to care for them that we won't be joining you. I don't think I ever worried about the germs as I was to excited about the whole thing. My daughter once thought that it was too risky for us to have the grandchildren round but my theory is the enjoyment far outweighs the bugs and if I feel bad later it has been all worthwhile!

    Wishing you all the very best and hope the judges are kind too x

  • Thank you all for good luck wishes ! It's work and more work to get my dogs

    In best condition for ten minutes in that spotlight !! Worth it all for a piece of card ,maybe a ribbon .. But more important to me and you ,,is the determination to carry on ,

    Regardless of this MPN.. Inside me now ..it's called. Positive determination ..and of course my great love of life ... Keep twinkling ....xxx

  • I will be watching for you amongst the winners! Luv ElsieR x
