Comments: Vet Bleg

Our large animal vet is Dr. Linford Judy. He's closer to you than to us and I think it likely he'd treat your small animal. Tell him I gave you his number and ask him to estimate his bill for what you need. After he says "one bazillion dollars" just chuckle like I do and wait for the real answer.

If it's too much then let me know and I'll move your car (with a "probably no scratches or dents" guarantee!) He's as reasonable as they come though.

Many thanks. The Refugee emailed a suggestion, who suggested "Superior Mobile Vet." Sounds promising and I have a call in. I'll hold yours in abeyance.

The car, curiously, is fine -- the walk to it requires crossing a parking lot glacier. An ice ax, some cramp ons, and a trusty sherpa I'd be fine...

You should sue!

P.S. I'd intended to call yesterday about my weatherization internship but spent all morning and part of the afternoon thawing out a furcacta horse fountain. [Don't quote me on the spelling of "furcacta" and apologies to the sensitivies of anyone who knows what it means.] We'll be in touch soon though.

Heh. Reading Lileks's tweets, I realize I should not be complaining about my little ice patch when we have about 60F on our Minnesota friends.

Well, my curiosity's piqued:

We did not find results for: 'furcacta horse fountain.' Try the suggestions below or type a new query above.

It was a bit of original phraseology on my part. Horse fountain is fairly straightforward. My "furcacta" should have been spelled farkakt,and is Yiddish. But basically it means this.

Heh! Great image, JG. Here at Finesse Farm, we use Nelson waterers. I've had a heater unit burn out twice, which you only discover when the weather hits about 5 degrees (and then warms up). The spectacle brings new meaning to the term "horse fountain" along with the colorful language that you mention.
