Black Thursday

Yeah, OK, we had a Blue Tuesday. Whether that plays out as good or bad depends in large part on the people elected and their perception of their mission(s). Frankly, right this moment, politics is not high on my list of priorities.

Neither are squirrels. Or Greenies. Or beer. Even micro-brews.

Ankle-Biter didn't make it. The congestive heart failure which slowed him for so long finally won, and he won't wake up anymore in this life. Family and friends, both canine and human, await him on the other side, though, so we take some small comfort in that.

I want to thank him for what he did to welcome me to the family all those years ago. Even blind in one eye as he was, he taught me to retrieve sticks, to bark at doorbells (even on TV, and even when we didn't actually have one in the house), and to ride calmly in the car. And oh, so many more things...

In his memory, I'll remind you of this.

God's speed, little fella.
