It’s official — Bookman Designs will be represented at the Adirondack Museum’s Rustic Furniture Fair this year. (This will be our 9th year at this show.) Located on the museum’s beautiful grounds in Blue Mountain Lake NY, the show dates are September 14 & 15. We’ll post more information as the date approaches. We hope to see you there!
At 15 Jasper is definitely the matriarch of our little clowder of cats. Nearly 3 years ago she was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism which we’ve been successfully treating with medication. In searching for a more permanent solution our vet recommended Thyro-Cat, a group whose logo is a cat with a glowing red thyroid. The treatment consists of an injection with radioactive iodine, a substance that attacks the tumor that’s growing around her thyroid while leaving the gland itself undamaged. She had this done on Tuesday the 8th and while she doesn’t glow (which if kind of too bad because that would be cool) she is responding wonderfully. With any luck she’ll be medication free in a few months. This is her enjoying her new bed. Here’s to many more years together!
We started the New Year in one of our favorite ways — with a walk / snowshoe deep into the woods. The day was cold (around 18F), clear, and full of chickadees. It gave us the chance to get out and work off some of those Christmas cookies! We hope the beginning to your New Year was as enjoyable.
