Walkin'

We got the word last week that it is the beginning of the end for Buzz, our hound dog for the past dozen years. The limp that developed a couple of weeks earlier is caused by cancer in his right front paw. Since he is 12 1/2 years old, roughly equivalent to 90 or more in human years, there isn’t much that can be done but to keep him comfortable through pain medications

Food For Thought

It has been 70 years to the day since the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and devastated the United States naval base there, killing well over 2,000 servicemen and about 60 civilians. I imagine that over the past weeks and days, you have been duly reminded of that event and bombarded with a great deal more information than it takes to convince you that we need to remember such events in order to avoid them in the future. That, however, is not my job. Somebody else has done it much better than I could.
