Have you ever wondered ?????


I was woken up during last night with Awful ~ Awful ~ Awful earache ~ I have never had earache before and never want it again :o( 

It was so bad I asked Lyn to ring the Doctors surgery for me ~ which is unheard of because at all costs I avoid the Doctors surgery ~

Every time I go there to collect prescriptions I read this little verse and it always tickles my sense of humour ~ so thought I would share it with you ~



Little pill here in my hand

I wonder how you understand,

Just what to do or where to go,

To stop the ache that hurts me so,

Within your covering lies relief,

You work alone to ease my grief,

You sink in regions there below,

As down my throat you quickly go !

But what I wonder, little pill,

Is how you know right where I'm ill ?

And just how do you really know,

exactly where you have to go ?

"author unknown"

Turns out it wasn't earache but a chest infection which the Doctor gave me antibiotics ~ and it feels a lot better already :o)


I am away staying with my Sister Joy for the weekend so will be back Monday  ~ Hope you all have a great weekend ~

Hello Ally,  I'm so glad the chest infection is on the mend, yes the little pills DO work wonders don't they?!  I used to get really bad earaches when I was a child and have had operations on both ears once I was an adult - I think earaches are worse than toothaches at times.
The photos are lovely, loved the little stream and the thought of the chickens running towards you made me laugh, I can just imagine them!  Love, Pat

fowfies said...

Woweee that is a lot of chickens! They all look mostly like Red Stars...really prolific layers. I am sorry you felt so did the earache make for a chest infection I wonder? Glad you went on to the doctor and got antibiotics. Those are some really beautiful pictures taken while y'all were out..and that Toby, what a silly puppy, he sure is a cutie! Glad to see you posting, I had to come and check yesterday to make sure I was getting alerts from you, and I am. Hope you feel better soon. (((HUGS))) Kelly

blpltt said...

Yes, Ally, I give the doctor a wide berth!  Your tour was lovely, some very cosy architecture, and how good to see the hens out, doing what comes naturally.Bet the eggs were good.

faveanti said...

Ally, how I laughed at the verse!  Hope you don't mind, I've copied it on to my sis, who also likes a good giggle.  Sorry about your earache.  What a funny diagnosis!  I'm sure there'll be a connection somewhere but your chest sounds an awful long way from your ear.  The poem has a point!  Little Toby. bless hm.  I love to see a spark out puppy when he's been having himself a lovely time.
Love, Angie, xx

lindaggeorge said...

Ally!!! How can a pain in your ear be a chest infection???? Are you sure that was the doctor you saw and not a cleaner having a laff?

nightmaremom said...

nice verse... lol  Hope you are feeling better

jaymact1 said...

Loved the little verse and the pictures they were lovely nice to see the harvest all gathered in again. So sorry about the ear I used to get earache as a child and out would come the warm almond old I can feel it now but a hot water bottle did the trick. Love Joan.

oddb0dkins said...

Love the pics Ally. How was Toby staying on that sofa? Dogs and cats get into some weird positions don't they.
Hope you're feeling better soon.

I hope you are feeling better soon!  Your pictures were wonderful!  I was amazed at the free range chickens.  Here in the US that is rare but people are starting to demand the cage free eggs and poultry.  Linda

tendernoggle said...

Nothing much worse than an earache or toothache...:-(
Hope you get to feeling better!
love ya,

plieck30 said...

Yes Ally I have wondered how that pill know where to go. So sorry to read you were in pain. No fun for sure. Hope you are better now. Paula

jonibooks1991 said...

I loved the little poem, I've always wondered the same thing.  Sorry you arn't feeling well, I sure the antibiotics will work fast.  Poor Toby being in that cast during the summer, he sure is cute.  Loved the pictures of the area too.  Joni

mariealicejoan said...

Glad you got your infection sorted.  I have had earache many times in my life and it is very painful.  Interesting that yours wasn't your ear and yet gave you the same pain!  Loved all the photos, especially the ones of Toby!

sdoscher458 said...

Glad you are feeling better, nothing worse than head pain too. You have taken some lovely pictures, I especially love the little stone, Sandi

bbartle3 said...

Loved the photos, especially
the tavern along the road. Can't
even imagine what it might be like inside.
We're at the mercy of our physicial
health aren't we? Oh dear, the number
of things that can go wrong......shudder....
I just might try thinking of it this way: if
I handle my physical health it just might
help with my mental health!  Ha ha ha....


rachealcarol said...

You're a discoverer Ally, I like your new stream.  Toby looks well chuffed he's got the plaster off :)

((( hugs for the earache))) one pain that falls into the category of annoying, irritating and much ouch! ouch!.....nothing ever seems to quell the pain.  Rache

wldconnie said...

Glad you have got some relief from the doctor.There is nothing worse than ear ache. Hope youn are bettewr soon. love Conniexx

lsfp1960 said...

No matter what it was...pain in the ears is awful.  Glad you were able to get in quickly and get started on the antibiotics.   Linda in Washington state

topchelseagirl said...

Yes I have often wondered just that. That was a lot of chickens running at you! What a lovely little church. Hope you feel better soon.

rayne1123 said...

salemslot9 said...

I had an ear ache when
I was younger one summer
guess I got it from playing
in the water at the lake/pool
I just remember it hurt :(
glad you're feeling better, Ally!

edwardssoapy said...

Dear Ally,

That is a funny verse, I have often wondered that.  Hope the ear infection clears up soon, and I'm glad Toby's leg is better.  Thanks for includes pictures, I really do enjoy photographs.  I often feel it gives people ideas of topics to talk about.

Thinking of you,
Leigh :o)"

helloimkara said...

I LOVE this great poem! That is great. Sorry you were in so much pain.


nhd106 said...

I sure wonder how a chest infection gave you a horrible ear ache!  Wow...I'm just glad you took care of it and are feeling better.

susanebunn said...

I'm glad that you ahve your infection sorted.  I think we get our eggs at the same place.  We are going there to get some today.  Is the gentleman that owns it a boxer from Jamaica?  He has a little old local boy help him too.  Calls me " his loyver".  LOL!  Tobby is getting really big now!  


springangel235 said...

I do hope by now the chest infection is sorry to hear you felt bad.  I enjoyed all the photos...Toby is so cute...and the tour around awesome...loved the cafe!  Have a great weekend...many hugs and love,

jlocorriere05 said...

I'm sorry you had an awful earache, I've never had one either. I'm glad the doctor discovered the cause and hope the pills work soon. I bet Toby is loving having that plaster off! Enjoy the weekend with Joy. Jeannette xx  

cacklinrosie101 said...

Love your pictures, as always, Ally.  I sure hope that ear is feeling better.  I used to get horrific earaches when I was young.  Toby is just adorable.  Hope you have a wonderful time at your sister's house.  Love xx Chris

deegleed said...

I have spent ages looking at all your pictures. Always have enjoyed them . Keep taking the tablets and get that chest better. Regards Dan.

onemoretina said...

So glad that the 'little pills' did the trick, Ally.  Having an earache is a miserable experience.  Good to know that you are on the mend.  Hope your weekend was a lovely one.  Take care, Tina

lindapaterson177 said...

Hope your feeling better Ally take care. luv bella xx

bbartle3 said...

Happy to hear your
medication worked.
Loved all the photos;
How do you stack 'em
like that?! That method
sure beats anything I've
tried. I'm carzy about
that surprising, out-of-
nowhere rural restaurant
kinda as if it folds out
of the building it abutts
in day, and retracts at
night. Ha! Sure would
like to spend an hour
there eating and reading
the paper.

Oh I am so glad that you chose to ring up the Doctor and get some medicine to help you. I know just how awful those earaches can be, no matter what the cause. I'm glad you were able to get away and have a visit. I look forward to hearing all about it.
