It was a challenge, but I finally got Coach's picture printed. I'm not sure whether all that I did was needed, but I: turned it into a JPEG (instead of printing directly from Canvas), doubled the amount of virtual memory on the Mac, tripled the memory allocated to Picture Viewer, and printed it in Foreground instead of Background.

And it came out beautifully, at 8x10. (It shows its resolution a bit, at that size, but not so much as to require shrinking it.)

I took Tigger to the doctor. His tympanic membrane is the color of my shirt today. Bright red, that is. Dr. prescribed Ceclor and said it was Otitis Media (matching Flar's diagnosis, fwiw). Peeps were only a quarter at CVS, so I succumbed.

I'm calling Wolf tonight, but before then, we're playing Mystery House Clue for family time, and then I'll read Oz if there's time.

    Monday - Pink
    Tuesday - Orange
    Wednesday - Yellow
    Thursday - Green
    Friday - Blue
    The Weekend - Purple

I'm sorry Tigger has OM, but I'm glad that he's getting such prompt treatment. I assume there was no perforation of his eardrum, or you'd have mentioned it?

There was no drainage to indicate it. The doctor didn't mention a perforation, but it's red enough that he may not have been able to see a small one. Which means if there is one, it's likely to fully heal on its own.
