Father passes away quietly.

My father just passed away a day ago now.  Reflection and time to mourn is what is consuming my time as of late.

He was part of the "Greatest Generation", the WW 2 veterans that fought for Freedom, Liberty and Peace.

He will be truly missed by all who loved him.

I will not be writing until things and emotions return to normal, but thank you so much for visiting this site every so often.

Father in the hospital.

Sorry that I have been away for so long...

But, my father was admitted to hospital emergency on Friday morning at 2 am. Vomiting was the issue at first, but now with one lung found full of fluid, and when drained filled up full again, things have become a surprising uphill battle for my father.

At 90 plus age, there is not much the hospital will do if it is an operational cure. It "could" be cancer, or COPD heart problems.

Monday and Tuesday, I thought death was ringing in. H…

Thundernose, the super dog, was under a heavy, deep sleep. He was dreaming of defeating an invading army of a million and one fleas trying to enter a local SPCA ventilation system, and infecting the whole cat and dog population inside. He was just about to pour some kerosene down the hole and light it up, until he was so arrogantly awakened by Mattpluck.

He twirled Thundernose round and round in the hammock, then shot him across the barn. Thundernose quickly regained his senses on seeing the peak of the barn just below him, and returned his flight to a calm but speedily controlled fashioned. He slammed into Mattpluck, who flew head first into his pet Hamster wheel which was located outside when the weather was nice. His hamster then began spinning the wheel, as Mattplucks tongue was stuck between one of the spokes.

He managed to muffle a few words out "Ma tong is tuck in da friggin wheel, hep befo he tears the f*&* ting off!"
