Sad Day

I don’t believe in “the rainbow bridge” – that animals have souls. Rather, pets are mirrors to the souls around them. Kelsey showed souls around her in their best possible light: the joy, the serenity and the quiet kindness. These she reflected to friend and stranger alike and her loss makes the world colder and grayer.

Off the top of my head

I had a little pimple-like thing taken off my head Monday. Given my history both my doctor and I tend to err on the side of caution so off it went. The piece they removed wasn’t deep but was more than a centimeter wide so the suture looks ghastly. This is how I looked leaving the office with my "practically undetectable" pressure bandage.

Back when "keeping in touch" meant a letter or telephone this sort of thing could be kept quiet. Now that I FaceTime with the family I expect an explanation will be demanded. I wonder if they’d notice if I wore a toupée…

It’s been a long, long, long, long, long time since I’ve seen something like this. It was much harder than I thought it would be but it was also much easier (I know that doesn’t make much sense). Judy was aces helping when I was burning the late night oil and fretting about projects. I can’t wait to go back.

Our cherry tree is losing it’s blossoms so I took some pictures. It really was quite beautiful in full bloom – I don’ t know that I ever noticed anything like it in CT.

In a related note, next year Judy and I are going plant a dogwood in the back to remind us of Fairfield.

Guess what time it is?

Yes it’s Supper time. Henry and Kelsey (l to r) are reminding me to come downstairs and give them dinner. Chester the cat will be up here shortly to holler at me as well.

{sigh} it really is a dogs life!
