JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

It pays to be vigilant!

I have a skin check every two years but DH hasn't had one since we moved here in 2006.  So he made an appointment with the doctor last week.  Imagine his surprise when Doctor Edward found a tiny black spot between his third and fourth toe!  "It's got to come out straight away" said the good doctor.  When DH went to the surgery to have it taken out the nurse commented on the size of it.  The doctor told her "Better to take this out now than to lose half a foot later on".  Sobering thought.  Anyway, four stitches later, it is gone.
We won't get the results for a few day, but please everyone. Take note and have regular skin checks.
