Karma!

Violet is peacefully sleeping - they said the new medication would have that effect. I put a step stool against the bed where she usually jumps up and she actually used it! We don't have stairs, thankfully. I can't climb them any better than she can.

And do they have mobility enhancing food for humans? I don't think so. Once again we get the short shrift. Sheesh.

I don't know if she needs any help with her mobility when it comes to food. She was lying on her bed behind me and I dropped a piece of watermelon on the other side of me. Before I could reach to pick it up she was there and swallowed it whole. No wonder she has health problems!

Pac, I used to live next door to a home that was right on the curve that divided the road into three separate streets. His end post to his fence got knocked down at least once a month as cars sped around that curve. After a year of this he built a normal looking post that was hollow, filled it with cement and put a cap and finial on it. It looked lovely. After two cars careened into that post, with some serious injuries, the city finally reduced the speed of all three roads and posted a dangerous curve sign. It was a longtime before another car hit that still standing post. He had to replace the wood, but not the cement.

Sometimes you just have to take action into your own hands. Here's hoping your solution works.

Funny how things happen that way. Now you'll probably see it all over the place.

I'm hoping, too, Addie. I figure if it looks like something that won't give or break they will give it a wider berth.

Or if it is a private contractor and they have to replace that damaged snow blade, they will think twice before they just willy nilly plow their way into a bigger paycheck during each snowstorm. Here's hoping every mailbox looks like a potential equipment killer and they give it a wide berth.

Pac, when one of the occupants of the car that hit that cement post tried to sue the homeowner, the court held that a man had a right to protect his property and that there were plenty of signs posted telling them of the danger of speeding on that stretch of road. Just maybe if enough pieces of equipment hit your post and take on some serious damage, someone will take notice and educated the drivers of these pieces of equipment.

You should spread the word to any of your neighbors of your solution if they have had their boxes knocked down also.

When I bought my first Volvo, I started to see Volvos all the time.
