Lorrha Notes

Have you seen this dog? He went missing from the Rathcabbin area and his owner is appealing to the public to help her find him. The chocolate colored male Labrador went missing from a house in Graigue on Sunday 7th of October. The 14 months old who answers to the name of Sam, was wearing a dark tan coloured collar. Anybody who may have seen him or believe they may know where he is please contact the owner as she misses him and would love to have him back. She can be contacted by phone on 0877512219 or by email at martinamary87@yahoo.ie .

Smile Awhile.

Hospital regulations require a wheel chair for patients being
discharged. However, a student nurse, found one
elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a
suitcase at his feet, who insisted he didn’t need my help to leave
the hospital.
After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let the young student nurse wheel him
to the elevator.
On the way down she asked him if his wife was meeting him.
‘I don’t know,’ he said. ‘She’s still upstairs in the bathroom
changing out of her hospital gown.’
