Rest in peace, Belle

Here are Loyal Readers Numbers One and Two with Loyal Pet Number One, back in Virginia during happier days for LPN1.

It is with great regret and deep sadness that I announce today’s death of LPN1, our devoted dog Belle. She had been becoming increasingly weak and ill, and Loyal Reader Number Four and I decided that today was the day for her to take her final trip to the Vet. It was a wrenching decision and a very sad day for all of us. We will truly miss Belle. She was about the best pet ever, and our happy memories of her will last the rest of our lives.

Cool, windy day, but no rain.

I got to the train station this morning for the early (4:38) train, and heard an announcement that there was a broken rail(!) on the Altamont pass, so the train would be at least an hour late. I got back in the car and drove to work. It turns out that train never made it – they brought it back to Lardville and on to Stockton at some point during the morning, and the third train finally made it through more or less on schedule. It was a great day to drive. I’m hoping for better things in the rail transportation area tomorrow.

That’s it for tonight. Weekend description tomorrow. I’ll say merely that Loyal Readers Numbers Five, Six, and Twelve were here, and LRN5 and took me to the store to buy a new fella for the pond! We picked a pretty one. Thanks, LRN5!

No links today. I don’t have the heart for it. See you tomorrow.
