I Have a Stalker

He’s a real snake in the grass.

(That’s a Dad joke if I ever heard one.)

Guess What I’m Listening to Right Now?

Go ahead, guess.

The furnace; I’m listening to the bloody furnace running.

Because it’s 40° this morning.

W.T.F.

Go Ahead, Make Your Ears Happy….

April 10th began just like any other day, except it wasn’t. Usually Ruby greeted me at the bedroom door, overjoyed to see me, but this time she didn’t.

It didn’t take long to discover that sometime between 1:30 am, when Mr. K went to bed, and 4 am, when I got up, she had died on the couch in the same spot he had last seen her.

Everybody tells us we should be thankful she died peacefully.

But we didn’t get time for a proper good bye.

She was nine years-old, but because she was white we didn’t see her graying muzzle, so she was forever young in our minds.

And she still partied like a rock star, if only for shorter periods.

She had had a great day on Monday.

We just weren’t prepared.

This is a devastating loss for us. She had such a huge presence, which makes us even more aware of the deafening quiet.

And this next part of the story makes me cry every time I think of it. You can believe it or don”t. I wouldn’t have believed it had I not seen it myself.

DammitDiesel had an odd habit of carrying three pieces of dog food into the living room and laying them on the carpet at Ruby’s feet. Occasionally he’d miscount, but, for the most part, it was three pieces of food, and always on the carpet.

A couple of days after Rubys death we had some errands to run.

When we returned we found exactly three pieces of dog food on the couch, in the spot where she’d last been.

Fridays Playlist

This is not a genre that I typically listen to, but, for the most part, I really like Ed Sheerans music.

And as an aside, I think his ink is sexy AF.

(Is that a creepy thing to say if I’m old enough to be his older sister… twice removed?)

On My Playlist this Morning

The sound of the furnace humming as icy rain pelts the windows.
