Let us ride together, Blowing mane and hair, Careless of the weather, Miles ahead of care, Ring of hoof and snaffle, Swing of waist and hip, Trotting down the twisted road With the world let slip. Anonymous riding song.
Along for the ride:

Sparkles is making headway. She found an innovative sleeping position to be able to breathe more easily and has eaten and slept her way through the worst.
I am going to need Hubby to collaborate on getting a few more glamorous pictures of his favorite little Princess. She is an active two-hands-full now, when awake.
I have been reaching out to more knowledgeable kitten-folks for advice and their support has been invaluable. If all goes as planned, they are going to take her in a few days and integrate her into a new kitten-family of five foundlings about the same age. They were collected from the local pound yesterday "pre-euthanasia".
Hubby had taken for granted that we were keeping Sparkles. I may have to draw him a picture, 'cos he sure hasn't been listening to the words I've used. No more "permanents" hung on my heart strings for a while, if ever. Rescue, strengthen and launch on their way, then help the next one.
If I were a tree, I would be a London Plane. I am gregarious but enjoy solitude. I am English in my heart and soul, but still have room for other nations. I have lived in six countries and picked up a French husband along the way. We have a wonderful, kind, strong-minded daughter who has become a "Human of whom to be proud". I am a magnet for the lost. I foster collies (and collie cousins and the occasional, accidental, cat or crow). Those I have saved have saved me in return. I notice the world around me and often talk to strangers. Traveling alone is interesting, liberating and fulfilling. I am good at most things that I undertake but have few formal qualifications. I am able to have and treasure friends with whom I disagree about almost everything. My life is not over. Who knows where I am headed?
