I lost my Dad two days ago. One way we're coping is that we realize he'd lived a good life and was "ready"- raised good kids, loved his wife and cared for others in so many ways. His legacy will live on.
This Oregon thing and others like it are tragic. These young people never had a chance. Condolences to their families and anyone else who is affected.

Just_Joe... so sorry about your Dad.
Sounds like you have some great memories with him.

((((Just_Joe))))


As for the other thing, I'm speechless, except to think of the way that that generation has been raised on medications to make them "normal" in school... What has that done to their brains?!!

My dog Wallace escaped from my yard yesterday and got hit by a car and didn't make it. I was able to get him to an emergency vet, but his internal injuries were too severe and he had about an hour left from when he got hit. I just wish I was able to spend that whole hour comforting him, it took almost 45 minutes from when he was hit to get him to the vet. At least my neighbors saw it happen (she tried but couldn't stop it from happening) and were able to let me know to have some time to try and save him.

He was turning 2 years old this month and was my first dog. I found him in December 2013 after he got hit by 2 cars (which I witnessed the 2nd one hit him), I took him in and got him fixed up after having a broken leg and getting a concussion. He was so happy go lucky and always wanted to go on an adventure and he had many. I had Escape Artist listed on his collar for a reason, but wish I could have built a fortress to contain him. I didn't want him to stay indoors all the time while I was at work everyday, but I might still have him if I took that route. I am trying not to beat myself up for that, he would have escaped another day as it was. He wanted to go explore.

He was my right hand guy and always waiting for me to get home. I took him out a couple times over the weekend to an outdoor concert and an arts festival, and he got to play with his best dog friend on sunday, but I was not prepared for this. I am pretty fucking devastated.

RIP Wallace. 2 years was not enough time.

Ozzy is not here is the rumor, find Tony and report back!

Truth is we know that, so why no there there?

Cause it's about directed energy weapons, and liberty.

I hate you, cause I have to be that person, the witness.

So sad... found out that my sweet friend, Dena Lovins-Elgins, passed on the 10th, quite unexpectedly.
We met before she started working for the post office, then I was lucky enough to be on her route. She and one of her daughters were always so excited when they delivered my Burning man tickets, then upon my return, I'd get plied with questions about how the burn was.
Hard to believe I won't be seeing her again... *sigh* :cry:

Patsh,

I am so sorry for you. Every now and then, if we are lucky, we just might happen upon someone who is so special in our lives and who at any other place or time we would have never met.

But, you did meet and both of you were all the better for it.
