Vicki had gotten her when she was in middle school 6 or 7th grade and B was so personable, she loved chips, cereal, she would lay on the couch with us and watch tv, she loved to have her head rubbed and was also litter box trained.

Vicki was so upset, crying, which got me all upset, what timing, the day of her leaving home. B is now buried under a young oak tree that I planted in the yard.
I am so very sorry for Vicki's loss. The same thing happened to my son with his guinea pig. His guinea pig died the night before his first day returning back to school after the summer. He was just started middle school. He was up almost all night crying. I wanted to keep him home so bad because he was grieving but being the first day of school he went ahead and went. That morning he seemed okay so we sent him. I know it has to be hard on Vicki to leave like that. I know it's hard on you too to see her hurting.

Good Thursday morning, my Christmas friends!

Today is Jacob's 16th birthday! And he's very proud of himself LOL. We're having a family get-together tonight at home, then a buddy of his is spending the night tomorrow night. Well, the boys are older now, so his buddy is "crashing at Jacob's place" Friday night, not "spending the night with Jacob." I expect to hear guitars till 3 in the morning.

I took Nancy to Jim's shop to see the latest Camaro, and she was actually impressed. Jim and I plan to start sanding the body this weekend, preparing for a primer-coat.

I hope y'all have a great day!

So sorry to hear this. It's always heart-wrenching to lose a pet who's been a part of your life for so many years, but the timing here was even worse. My heart goes out to all of you, but to Vicki especially.

I am so sorry to read about your family's loss. It is always upsetting and heartbreaking to lose a pet , they are such a meaningful part of our lives. I hope you will be able to take comfort in the memories and knowing that you gave Mrs B a wonderful home and life.

I am happy to read that your son will be returning home, my prayers are with you all.

Love the Camaro, I can see it's potential. How many do you have? I'd love to own one someday......like Bumble Bee ...sorry that's the little girl in me.

I have three bodies that are all the same year model as "Bumble Bee". We've been working on one for a few months, and we bought the second car for extra parts (it didn't run, either). This latest one is in better shape than the other two, so we are going to finish this one and sell the other two.
