Just a small, personal note?

The latest adventures of The Kid & I are here:

Goto the last page and scroll back for more- but?

Last May I learned, belatedly, that my Miss Emily had had silent heart disease all along.

When I learned that, the Terrible Dark Cloud that lay over my every waking moment lifted off me.

I threw Cole-boy in the car and went to the Island to see face to face the widow of an old friend of mine. Known each other not all that well, but for 31 years.

She’s a cat lady & I’m a dog person- so we’ll see how it works out, but? It’s “interesting...”

I sit her house when she’s away, and gave her keys to mine. She has a lot of troubles- I don’t care, except I’d make them go away if I could. Everybody has troubles. Every one- you can’t escape that, it is part of being human.

I will go to my grave loving and missing my Miss Emily— 25 years of being married is a lifetime.


She’s “gone, forever, to the Sea...”

Say a prayer for Miss Emily- she really was the best friend I ever had. While you’re doing that, say one for johnny & Miss MaryAnn- that we find our way to a good place, separately... or together.

I had bookmarked this thread long ago and just came by to tell you I miss you..
I lost my husband of 28 years many years ago ..I wanted to die. He had a heart attack while we were on vacation..
I am so glad the dark cloud lifted for you...Grief is a terrible thing..
Your writing is beautiful.
I too was hoping Perry would make it...and took a lot of grief for it!
Just wanted you to know you and your kindnesses and valuable contributions are not forgotten.
Take care of yourself.
