In the mean time, I used up my old polish and applied it to all the bed slats
The Artist Diana (Luna del Gato), turns out to be a neighbour, who doesn't live more than 500m away, so after talking to her for a while we gave the go ahead, and she excelled herself.
If you're observant, you will have noticed the deliberate mistake...I only made two not three, duhhhh! So I had to set up my tools again and make a third, but in the end they were a good match.
Marcela made the decision that they would take pride of place on the lounge wall.
With regard to my knees and hips, I saw the number one Specialist in this area, and subject to the results of an MRI scan ( which is on 29th May) he believes I need surgery on both knees, and a replacement hip, he gave me the choice of which to deal with first, and I have gone with the knees, because although when I have been sitting a long time, or in bed at night, my hip gives me a lot of pain, I am still getting four of five hours sleep, I would rather be able to get around, and for that I need my knees sorting. I go back to see him on July 1st, and even if he decides to operate, I will then have to wait until it can be done.
As for Covid, numbers of positive cases here are going through the roof, we are in a partial lockdown again, the President wont go for the full lockdown, because Colombia can't afford it, unlike other Countries like the UK, there just isn't the money to dole out to people and Companies, the Politicians have seen to that, by filling their own pockets. I have heard no more about my appointment for the vaccine, it appears the program has all but come to a halt, because they can't get the vaccine, or afford to pay for it, one or the other. Yesterday, we heard that our Department has run out of Oxygen in the hospitals, so the death rate is climbing...it certainly doesn't sound good, that's for sure. We can only sit back and watch and wait.
