Why didn’t I think of this before?

on November 7, 2012

Every Thursday morning the nursing lodge has a bus excursion and Anthony usually goes. Last Thursday I arrived at the nursing lodge at around noon to be told that Anthony was still out and that the excursion was to Dardanup (our town!) They’d gone up to the hills just past our farm. So, when the bus returned and Ants was being helped back to his room by the nurse in charge of the excursion, I asked if it would be possible for the bus to come to our place and she said yes!

So tomorrow, they are coming here and I am so excited. The nurse said they might make it a semi-regular thing and I wanted to kiss her feet! This would be a stress-free way of getting Anthony home for a few hours and I am sure the other residents will enjoy it too. They always bring their own morning tea and there are enough staff for any toilet emergencies, so I am definitely in yeeha mode! Anthony seems to think it is a great idea too.

I have told the birds that they will have an audience tomorrow between 9.30 and 11.30am, so they are all practising for Godfrey’s contortionist competition.

    What a beautiful idea, your place looks for serene and welcoming and lots of fun with all the birds. They will love it!

    Sounds like a fantastic idea.
    I’ll bet the other lodge residents will enjoy your feathered clan as much as Anthony.
    (it must be hard for the Lodge staff to think of new outings so no doubt they’ll enjoy it too).

    I’m so happy for both you and Anthony! Great news!

  15. Great idea! I used to bring litters of siamese kittens in for my mom to see, and then let all the residents love them up. It was great for us, wonderful for the residents and my mom, and the kittens loved it, too!
