Holly: July 2000 — December 27, 2016

 

My baby’s kidneys had been ailing for the past year, and they finally failed her over Christmas.  She bravely fought a losing battle, and I will never forget her love of her humans which she conveyed to us until her very last breath.  We took her to the vet this afternoon — she is now resting in our building’s ample garden, very near the spot where we already buried Gypsy and Tiger.  I want to believe that they are reunited in a happy place.

Apologies for not having been around lately (nor will I likely be in the next couple of days).  I am crying as I type this, and as is so often the case, one major event follows on the heels of another — more on the other things going on in my life later, at a more convenient moment.

I hope everybody else had a Merry Christmas — and a Happy New Year to one and all, in case it should take me until next year to resurface here.

Lots of love to one and all!

  1. I’m so sorry – there aren’t many things harder than losing a beloved pet. I’m still hurting after giving up my girl Daisy almost two years ago, and that wasn’t a death. *hugs*

    1. Thank you — and than you for the beautiful present! I will reciprocate soon … I confess I’ve been so preoccupied (not merely with Holly) I didn’t even spare a thought for Christmas all December long. Please also say hello for me to Bettie and Wanda if you should speak to them — I haven’t been in touch with either for a long time, either.

To Russia With Love

I’m not going to turn this into a political blog, but Ukraine’s national flower (here seen against the blazing blue skies of the Loire valley) will be heading my posts until Russian troops have left the country and the slaughter of innocent civilians has come to an end.  Бог з Україною (God be with Ukraine).

Bonn: Retro Views

One of the few things that helped keeping my spirits up while away was trying my hand at a sort of color-faux-iPhone version of “classic movie night time scenery” views (as in: set in Europe), courtesy of an endless series of night sessions in my cooperation partners’ new office, which is right on Bonn’s main […]
