One of the last photos I have

Cloro has disappeared.

I played with him a little in the yard after 11pm on Sunday, came in and went to bed; that was the last I saw of him.

I have been around the streets locally to see if he had been run over or met some other mishap, but no sign.

I remain still hopeful, that he will stroll in and demand breakfast.

I am already feeling the loneliness, the house is empty.

I got an award today. The Shine On award, it involves a meme, but I am not going to do it, I can’t.

I will thank Amanda at Night Owl Kitchen for the honour.

I can’t do justice today.

Remember I wrote about the big storm we had a few nights back and mentioned the continuous lightning, well, some fool was out there counting the flashes, probably the met guy, there were 4,000+ flashes in the whole state of Rio. One of them blew the thumb off the Statue of Christ and damaged another finger. Repairs are being made today.

Fixing the thumb

Fixing the thumb

This shows the banal order of priorities here in Brazil; people who were driven from their condemned homes in storms two years ago, are still waiting for the government to provide replacement housing as promised. A damned statue gets hit by lightning and they can’t repair it fast enough.

My tooth worsened last night, yesterday I had paracetamol for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I hope I can last out the day and night, then it’s off to the dentist first thing in the morning.

It’s time for a nap; it takes my mind of the tooth. Then I will make an abacate (avocado) slushie for lunch, it doesn’t involve chewing.

Later.
