This week has been full of great sadness and joy. Annie and Malc's flight had been followed all day on flight tracker....take off in London's Heathrow Airport initiated several hours of following a little red arrow on the computer screen as Flight BA49 traversed the Atlantic Ocean, Iceland and flew high above the Winter storms on the East coast. On a gray Thursday morning in the Pacific Northwest, I Watched the little red tracking arrow cross Montana and drop into the skies of Eastern Washington....I breathed a sigh of relief when I knew that the aircraft had landed, I felt a rush of happiness and relief when BA49 was at the gate. I jumped for joy when the Kitsap Airporter pulled into the Purdy Park and Ride...Annie and Malc were back at the ranch, two weeks on the ranch....two weeks to set the world right, two weeks with my twin sister and her long suffering husband..we could create chaos together in two weeks and we are working on it !!!
On Monday we had to say a very sad goodbye to an old friend. T Bone finally surrendered to age and infirmity. As I looked into his face and saw the age in his eyes, I saw the grey flecks in his coat and I saw how he struggled to move his weak old bones. I knew he was tired and I knew that T Bone felt it was time to go. Sue and Dan were there with him at the end as they have been through his senior years. T Bone has gone, but that big old bay gelding with more than his fair share of attitude will never be forgotten. Rest easy old man....miss you.
Well, the cuckoo clock says it is bedtime...the dogs are ready, the kettle is boiling...so, from Greg and I, Annie and Malc, I guess it's time to say goodnight, take care and keep safe. M xx
