Doggy bloggy 9 + other stuff

How's that for a catchy title. So how is Harry my wee dug. Well we got to the magic end of the 12 weeks rehab and the vet said ok let him run like Forrest Gump. So we let him off his lead and he was so happy. Chasing dogs playing with them and going crazy. Jane did this although her gut told her to do it gradually. But the vet said just let him go. Well we noticed quite quickly that he had a slightly funny run and also he tripped sometimes when walking. So after a couple of days she talked to our own vet and he said sorry he will have to go back to only 10 minutes a day lead walking he may have pulled a muscle. So it's back to the drawing board, He seems fine but we have to be careful. Other than that his kleptomania is still rife. He steels stuff out of pockets or anywhere he can find something he shouldn't have. He may have to go to jail.

+ other stuff. I've decided to bring back the Big Big Variety show in April 2022. I was going to give it a few years off but this will be the last chance to do it in the Kings before it shuts for refurb and also I just feel we all need to get into a theatre and have a laugh. That goes for us as well. Big Stotty has started River City (how fantastic is that) So let's hope he will be available for the Big show. I haven't booked anyone else but it will be exciting putting it together again.

Also I have booked the Festival theatre studio space to try out my play 'There is something like a dame' This is a play/comedy about life in the panto dressing room with my dresser Maggie. The lovely actress Anne Smith has been reading the part of Maggie with me, and she is perfect for the part. This will be in October 2022. I'm producing the show myself. Unfortunately Andy Gray was going to direct the play which would have been the perfect synergy, but sadly that's not to be.

Meanwhile I doubt I will do any ships this year and I cant commit to 3/4 months on board which is what most companies want. So all my energies will be put into the Panto. 'Sleeping Beauty' this year. ......fingers crossed.

Ok, Cheerey bumps and Andy would say. xxx
