Catching Up

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!!
