We lost our much loved and remembered 100 Lb black lab / golden retriever mix at 10 years to cancer. Here she is at just a pup. She was such joy and so we named her Joy!
Yes take your meds, I take so many for HBP and other heart issues.
I'm not a man of many words in tragic times. I have found that just listening to others who need to express their feelings is a perfectly acceptable role. We all have our own way of dealing with these things.
I am very sorry for the loss of your friend. The nefew of my best friend had epilepsy pretty bad. I got him a job working with me doing fast paced manufacturing production work when no one else would hire him. He did a great job for many years, but several times a year we needed to call an ambulance to get him care. Later he decided to go in for surgery to stop the seizures which worked. The down side was not so good it changed his delightful personality and his work started to suffer so my boss fired him. My work place wasn't the best place for him but it did give him some independance. He did get another job but not for long. The sad ending is he ended up committing suicide. I believe the surgery was mostly at fault plus his disorder. This happened many years ago and I am still saddened about this when I think of him. Better times are ahead.
So sorry to hear about this and others losses. RIP to all and a prayer for those left behind. My best school buddy had epilepsy real bad back in the early 1960s long before they had many of the new medications and procedures to help him. I remember well just how helpless we all felt when he would suddenly just go bonkers. I was assigned to sit directly behind him in class just to keep an eye on him so he did not fall and hurt himself. Wow was that both sad and bad and he was never able to warn us a GM seizure was coming. His family moved somewhere out in Minnesota where they had a special school for him around 8th grade.
Come to think of it I have a few friends suffering from seizures as we speak. They are liberal democrats so I am hoping they get over it pretty soon and make their lives great again.
I think everyone should pay close attention to the Coronavirus outbreak. This virus could kill millions of people. I grew up with a philosophy that "a little paranoia is prudent." With this virus a person can be contagious and not show symptoms for several days. Stay focused on washing your...
If you didn't watch the whole speech yourself perhaps you should. All citizens should each and every year. Watch and listen to form your own conclusions. Counting on any summary or analysis usually exposes one to an edited editorial bias and we Americans deserve to hear the unedited version...
I put out a game camera hoping to catch some of nature's beauty
or oddities like a deer taking a selfie.
or the occasional expectant mother
...and her offspring
Perhaps even catch a glimpse of Santa's sleigh transport at Christmas time.
But now I just seem to be getting no respect.

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow...
