Here on Galatea where blood-red roses have sprouted, it's the third week of taking care of Gabriela -- she had an ingrown hair, that she worried into a growth that the vet had to surgically excise and whose sutures then got infected requiring a second visit to the vet and since then the whole household has been taking care of her since she's not allowed to move much until tomorrow when her stitches are hopefully finally taken out -- to wit:
