In Memoriam

Pleasanton Games 2007 121

Demeter the Rabbit 2003-2008

Yeah, it sucks; Jessica was coming to get him in a couple weeks (she's got a new place & a roommate- but I don't know about a job *sigh*) & we found him laid out in his cage Friday afternoon. He apparently died in his sleep, quick & painless; his last 9 months were filled sun, grass, & free runs, so I feel we did the best for him, even though we can't particularly mourn his passing.

Thank you for all the get-well wishes; I am feeling much better, but it will be a bit longer until I'm back to speed. I ended up missing 4 days of work, which naturally means 2 weeks of catch-up Tongue out Fortunately, Chris has scored some side work over the next couple of weekends, which has more then made up for the pay shortfall of the short hours this month. Along with the speedy receipt of our tax return (7 days from filing- a record for us), our trip to DC next month is looking pretty sweet.

The recliner is calling my name; I spent Sunday out at Ravenswood, so I'm pretty well toast for tonight. Speaking of which- look for the next entry in the "Ravenswood Story" later this week, & have a Sweet Valentine's Day.

A cannibal was walking through the jungle and came upon a restaurant opened by a fellow cannibal. Feeling somewhat hungry, he sat down and looked over the menu: Broiled Missionary $10 - Fried Explorer $15 - Baked Politician $100. The Cannibal called the waiter over and asked, "Why such a price difference for the politician?" The waiter replied, "Have you ever tried to clean one?" Open-mouthed

So sorry to hear about Demeter, Meg. :0(

Glad, though, that you're feeling better! Being sick is nasty.

i'm thankful you're feeling a tich better, Meg. hopefully it'll continue and no relapse will settle in.

DC,huh? we've been there a number of times. the history is amazing. will you also visit Williamsburg/Jamestown, Mt Vernon, Monticello? we did all that and Gettysburg too. there's a wonderful B&B in GBurg called Hickory Bridge Farm - we've stayed there 3x.

So sorry to hear of your bunny. That very same thing happened to our sweet rabbit, Magic, too.

I'm also sorry to hear that you've been ill. I hope things will be feeling better in a great many ways, for you soon.
