Too many clothes

Inspired by Hostess of the Humble Bungalow's closet picture, I'm posting a shot of mine.   This is a winter shot, but it's just as crowded now with summer clothing, even if there is more colour.  And there are two dressers packed with scarves, t-shirts, jeans, sweaters etc.  Not to mention the shelves of shoes.

I seriously have too many clothes.

Rory's surgery

I had been wondering what the lump on his back leg was ever since I got him last year. So when we were at the vets for his spring heartworm check and perscription I asked. Turns out it's a mast cell tumour - cancerous and needed to be removed. Yesterday I took him in yesterday morning, was expecting to pick him up after work. Called at 5:30 pm and they said another hour. 8:30 pm and still no call, I found myself panicing a little, imagining he'd died on the operating table and they weren't going to tell me.  Turns out they were short staffed, so I got him later in the evening, and he's home recovering.

For a while after I got him I was worried that we weren't bonding - guess I'm over that!

Royals of a certain age

So why was it that not one commentator that I listened to mentioned Princess Anne or any other members of the royal family over the age of forty except the members of the wedding party, and the Queen?   Princess Beatrice and Eugenie got a mention, but the older generation was invisible.

My mother watched on BBC and she said that they were identifying various monarchs from around the world who were there.

Edit:  Just found with 19 identified photos of wedding hats, including a delightful Queen of Denmark.  I loved all the hats, I won't snear at anyone's right to go crazy with the headgear at an occasion like this.  Even the infamous 'deer in the headlights' hat that Princess Beatrice wore.
