From time to time I get a little behind on my writings and postings, and, needless to say, right now I am Waaaayyyyyyy behind. However, this time I do not apologize. This past year has been a beast. Those of you who know me personally know I have been battling a number of illnesses for many years, and for anyone who didn’t know this, well, now you do. Today I feel as well as I have felt in the last fifteen years, which is rare anymore. This is not offered as an apology for not posting, nor am I looking for any sympathy. Simply put, I somehow got old, ill, and forgetful. This post is to catch up on a few things some of my readers have asked me about.
Biggie – Year Twelve and a Half
Biggie is now seventeen years old and his strength and stamina is still strong. In my previous post about him, I wrote about how he had slowed down some and needed help with a couple of things, but he remains a very active doggie.
Stanley -- Year Three Quarters
Stanley is also a part time dog. Does two part time dogs make one full time dog? No, it adds up to a full time job, but I love it. Stanley is part Great Pyrenees, part Bernese Mountain Dog, part labradoodle, and a sprinkling of fence jumper. Although he is still a puppy, at ten months old, he has become a sixty pound lap dog. More about Stanley in a few months.
Annual Wild Game Feed 2023
The Annual Wild Game Feed at Irvine Lake is just a little less than nine weeks away. September 15, 2023 is coming up quickly, and I am hoping to see everyone again this year, along with some new faces. I hope to continue attending this event many years into the future; however, as I mentioned in the opening paragraph, I am not well, so every year I am able to attend may well be my last one. I realize that sounds as though I am about to be planted in the ground. Sorry. I have had Parkinson’s for about 18 years now, and I am finding my energy levels are not what they used to be. I tire easily, and I may not have the ability to attend, but that will not stop me from promoting the best and biggest Wild Game Feed anywhere. Unless something improves in my health condition, I must prepare for the year that will be my last Feed. So for now…(I hope to) See You At The Feed!!
