We're off

Ragnar and I are headed out now. My wife is staying home. She doesn't think this is going to end well and doesn't want to be there. I can understand that.

  1. Stay safe! If your wife doesn't think things will end well that's usually a sign that trouble is under way.

    1. Vicki, I appreciate the kind thoughts. He passed away but he was old, and he had a good life, so I'm trying not to feel badly. I will sure miss him though.

    1. Thanks Max. He passed away but my daughter was talking to me tonight and told me to remember that he was just "thrown away" down in Florida and that once he became a member of our family he was appreciated and cared for. He gave back as much as he got. A lot more, I think.

    1. She is usually right, and she was this time. But hard as it is to lose an animal friend, it's comforting to know that he was aware of how much we all cared for him and appreciated him.

    1. Hey, I appreciate it. Really do. It didn't work out the way I would have hoped, but he was in pain and now he's not. When my time comes I would like to be treated the same way.

    1. Jan, he had a tumor in his throat. It was hurting him, and he couldn't eat or drink, or even breath without difficulty. There was nothing to be done. I think he was not afraid and I believe he was ready to go.
