The good and the bad

One of the amazing outcomes of blogging for so long is becoming friends with so many across the globe. One of the heart wrenching realities is that over time – longtime friends must leave us. We say goodbye to Parker tonight. Rest little girl.


“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief…and unspeakable love.”

~ Washington Irving


Sad, sad day

Our favorite Tuxie boy Scooby has gone to the bridge. We are heartbroken.

My heart is broken.

Rest in peace Edsel’s mom

One of our very long-time friends has passed. Edsel’s mom, Sue, passed away from brain cancer. Our hearts are sad and the tears are flowing tonight.



‘Till we meet again

Our dear friend Freckles has left us.

We are sad.

The Dude Abides

Sweet dreams Rocky – we’re really going to miss you.

She walks in beauty

We say farewell to sweet Patches – one of our long time friends.

SHE walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that ‘s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow’d to that tender light

Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair’d the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!


Imagine and remember

Imagine there’s no Heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
