By one I meant a furry member of our family... Gandalf was a cat. We love dogs, but as city dwellers and with our erratic schedules we know we wouldn't be able to give a dog a great life.

In other news, woohoo, I finally got the final bar assembly done this morning. I still have more clear-coating to do, and then it's on to the many other projects.

It's early here but, I'm pouring.

Good news is, for the first time since 2012 I won't have to worry about my brother dying while I'm in BRC.

Bad news is, he died last night.

Fare well, Jim.

MDF: Though we've not met (yet), the loss you feel ripples out and touches those of us way out here on the distant periphery.

Words can't fix the pain, wishes won't make it go away, only time can heal the wound. My hope for you is that you find compassion, for you, your family and the memories of your brother.

Live strong.

I owe you a hug in the dust.

I think that we have a duty to those who depart this world to remember them, the good times we had with them, and in so doing keep them and their loving spirit alive in our own hearts and minds. If we do that, they will live on forever in US.

My heartfelt condolences for your loss.

Yep - for those who haven't seen this morning's JRS, more info to be found here.

Meanwhile, I'm back home from an early morning session on the big laser. Time to get cracking on some painting projects...

So sorry, MDF. I hope a wonderful celebration of his life is being planned at the Temple. If I can help, let me know. (((((((MDF))))))))

MDF you have had a year requiring you to you strength

My Camp is proving to be full of internal strife therefore I'm considering going to easier and not as strong as you are
I even considered retiring from burner life but that would be a form of dying

Haha - thanks for the comic, Figgy, I liked it. Sorry to hear about the strife, Aurelia, hopefully it's people with pre-playa jitters and cooler heads prevail in the end.

Monday, new starts and new weeks, hopefully this one's better than the last as we're now fully heading into the home stretch!

oh MDF, hope you are doing o.k.

Aurelia, deep breath and don't engage in strife if it can be avoided. Remember, this is a vacation.

Taking a breather from work today after a lot of mandatory overtime. Ten hour days are long, and it's hot at work, usually in the high 80's, so when they add one more day to the week for weeks on end, it's hard. Money can not buy a feeling of being well rested.
