Another doggy day at the clinic: this time there were two dogs wandering around, without leashes or apparent owners. They were very friendly, but I mean really - control your dogs, people! This is why we have leash laws.
The protesters were being quite aggressive this week, even though the Mad Chatter wasn't even there. The woman who carries poor old naked Jesus around on his cross ("The agonizing Jesus Christ", it says) was nosing around, calling out to patients and praying vociferously. Pink Hat was yelling her usual nonsense.
One of the patients, who was coming up the ramp with some volunteers, turned to the pleading protesters and said, simply, "Caw!". You know, like a crow. I guess everyone has a different way of dealing with them.
It was incredibly cold out there yesterday. AL was out for two shifts and didn't have a hat - I had to lend him mine. Which would be fine, except it's one of those animal ones (an owl!). It was ok, he looked quite adorable. (Shout out to AL - happy birthday, friend!).
There were actually some great hats on display among the escorts: TB had a cool elephant one, and HB had one apparently made out of socks. They are a fashionable bunch, those volunteers.
Hopefully this cold snap will pass soon.
