Saying goodbye to friends

Above and beyond the holiday rush, we have had some major problems to overcome, and an unusual number of trivial bothersome things. And then we lost Harley, of indeterminate age and unknown causes. The burial service was yesterday.

My friend Denise lost her Davey today. Davey had a working life pulling carriages of tourists on pavement before being retired and sold to Indian Hill Ranch where he was a pet and took small children on their first rides. The pavement took it's toll.

Remember to enjoy the things you have today, because you may not have them tomorrow. Hamsters and horses live for today. People too often live for the past or the future, mysef included.
