I tried to spend most of the time with Charlie, because on Friday he was really not well and Nicole had decided that we would go to the vet and have put him asleep on Monday (today). Mr. G. and I went on Saturday to Nicole and we found another dog ! He greeted us brought a ball, and was the old Charlie only a little slower. Apparently he eats like a horse and besides a slightly running nose and heavy breathing when he sleeps, and this now completely white eye, he is OK. So we decided that it was not yet his time. Was I relieved ! I had never thought that I was affected so much by his illness, he is not my dog, but he really loves me, Nicole said that that had never happened and that she is almost "jealous" !
In the evening we had a theater play for the Waterloo seniors. Usually these plays are always very good and very funny. I had never been disappointed. But this time it was really bad ! First, the title "Panic in the Ministry" had nothing to do with the play, it could have been played in every room. The only thing which related to politics was the title of the main actors the secretary of the education department and his secretary ! The text was gross, and to make us laugh it always was related to sex ! Of course it was a French play, with French actors, they couldn't find Belgian once, probably they all refused because the play was so stupid. For the first time people left after half an hour or far before the end. Nicole left after 15 min she had enough, she said she would rather go home and be with Charlie. I stayed just to see the reaction of the public, all over 65, I saw one near me who slept deeply others looked bored but there also were a lot who laughed. I lost my camera, I had taken a few pictures of the stage. Hopefully I will get it back on Monday.
As it was early, I joined Nicole at home and we had supper together, with a very eager participant, Charlie ! And while we chatted, he settled down and snored that the walls shook !
When we were in the "Lunch Garden" Charlie loves to go there.
On Sunday I went to one of the more than 100 parks of Brussels and its communities. It was the park "Parc des Étangs Mellaerts" with two big ponds. It was the opening of the sailing boats for rent and there were a lot of people.
I made some pictures had an ice cream and then went home because although it was sunny, the wind was cold. Charlie had family visit today, so I rested a bit to be in shape for the coming week.
