Hey look! It's a ...
Carl -- I hope you made it through the day ok. I always liked the Will Rodgers quote about wanting to go where dogs go in the afterlife ... I don't believe it, but I like the sentiment ...

Peace to you, my brother. A good dog is a rare friend. And truth be told, I like most dogs more than I like most people ...

Hang in there Carl. That's tough no matter how you look at it. Reflect on the good times and memories.....

Take care,

Our 2-1/2 year old German Shepard.
Weighed in at 94 pounds last month at the Vet office.
His name is Shep, short for German Shepherd.
His nickname is Deerslayer!
These are pictures I took and found the buck two days later.
One how gentle he is and several more on how protective he can be.

All is good now.
The lady who came by the house last evening to help us take the best dog ever to where she needed to be was absolutely wonderful.
We all cried, but the little princess went as peacefully as taking a well deserved nap.

I remember the day Bear died. It was sad but it was also heart-warming. The neighbors buried him for me ... Bear's Grove, down near the creek. A nice spot to contemplate the day: John, beer, Gator, Bear.

We drank a beer which was provided by the wonderful staff at the dental office where my wife works. She went in to work earlier that day, but they all insisted on covering her patients so that she could go home and spend the last day with her baby.
To top it off, the beer they gave her was Devil's Backbone!
After the princess Chelsea was relieved of all suffering, we drank one of those DB's, and it went down so well that I nearly chugged the whole bottle.
I have never enjoyed a beer as much as that one.

Update on the potential new project. I contacted my friend Pink Joe, who knows Buddy who owns the suburban. Pink Joe called Buddy to feel him out about selling the burb, but he said no dice. He has plans to eventually get around to destroying a genuine piece of military memorabilia by pulling the 22,000 mile original chassis/drive train, to replace it with an S-10 chassis. I feel like crying.
I will try to make arrangements to speak with Buddy directly and make him an offer he can't refuse. Maybe sharing my enthusiasm about what I want to do with it will help him reconsider.

Boy, that would be a shame. Maybe you can explain to him that the truck is too nice to sacrifice for a chassis swap. Maybe show him this site and tell him all about us handsome passionate enthusiasts grin
Good luck!
