    A sorrowful parting

    It's okay Dotti, don't feel bad for comments elsewhere, it's what's said here that's important. I can appreciate your remarks & their intent & as hard as it is right now to be overly happy in outlook our life will continue on. And although our friend & companion is no longer physically here to share our onward journey, our "Klein's Madel", will always be with us, forever locked into our hearts.

    A sorrowful parting

    Dave, I am so sorry to read about you losing your friend, for that's what she was, an important part of your family. Not such a happy birthday for you, I'm sorry I posted my good wishes to you before I read this blog otherwise I would have written a more sensitive birthday message to you.

    I know Steve, she'd earned & deserved them through her loyalty, love & the simple pleasure she brought to our home.

    A sorrowful parting

    so sad for you Son.
    Grief is the price that is paid for loving someone....and she was someone.
    A loved part of the family.
    I am sure she had a lovely life with you and that wherever she is now(in doggy heaven chasing squirrels) she would have had it no other way.
    I am thinking of you...and to a minor degree sharing your sorrow.(and I know that is NO consolation whatsoever)
    I love the poem...and I really wanted to 'like' the blog, but it is hard to like something about the sadness being felt by someone else.


    By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
    Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
    Where the friends of man and woman do run,
    When their time on earth is over and done.

    For here, between this world and the next,
    Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
    On this golden land, they wait and they play,
    Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

    No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
    For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
    Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
    Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

    They romp through the grass, without even a care,
    Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
    All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
    Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

    For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
    Together again, both person and pet.
    So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
    The time of their parting is over at last.

    The sadness they felt while they were apart,
    Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
    They embrace with a love that will last forever,
    And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.

    Sorry to hear that your truck mishap has caused so much damage and pain to you and hope you get better very, very soon. Yes, do as Margaret says, she does know what she's talking about.

    Have to say, though, although I really do feel sorry for you, your blog did make me laugh. It's good to know that you haven't lost your sense of humour. You've probably needed it.....

    Yes...cruel it is...but it will be more painful and much more cruel for longer if you do not heed the gypsis warning.

    Anyway, I thought you chaps had a 'deaf' button...press the button and you do not hear those nagging(but caring) words.

    Cheers Ma, I'll take your advice on board being as how you know the score through vast experience. The phsyioterrorist also gave me the gypoes warning, needless to say Witchity one's loving it ticking me off constantly under the guise of "The Doc said ... nag, nag,nag!"

    It's a cruel world when you're me!

    Sorry to hear about your fall off the back of a wagon.
    Must've been a hell of a bounce.
    Your report on the hospital excursion had me smiling....no I lie, I was proper giggling.....especially the onion bag bit.
    How many times have I seen bare bum cheeks hanging out of the back of theatre garb( though they always belonged to ladies)....too many.
    All that said, I hope you keep on doing the physio stuff, that part two of the process restores you to some sort of normality.
    Take care son.....and hasten slowly, recovery takes as long as it takes.
