Goodbye to my Dear Friend…

rhett_thumb.jpgToday, I had to say goodbye to my best friend, Rhett. After being my best friend and companion for the past eight years, Rhett lost his fight with a cancerous tumor in his spleen. He was always there for me through the good and bad times and I knew that I could always count on him to raise my spirits. His departure leaves a hole in my heart that will not easily be healed.

Rhett: I know you are in a better place now. A place with an unlimited buffet of “Marrow Bones” and cute poodles that you can chase around. You know I’m going to miss you, but I’ll always have the memories that we made together. Farewell my friend… warm up a cloud for me.

More memories…

Stuck in the Blizzard of ’08

columbus_snow.jpgWell, it was bound to happen. For the past couple of years, I have been one of the lucky ones that has been able to avoid airport weather delays, but not this time. The Blizzard of 2008 has me stuck in Columbus, Ohio for a minimum of two more days, and that is if there is an airline that can get me out by then.

Needless to say, the airport is closed, as is everything else within miles. So far, in Columbus alone, there have been almost 800 flight cancellations, so with thousands of stranded passengers, all I can do is wait. The snow is supposed to stop late this evening, so maybe things can start getting back to normal. Thanks Mother Nature…. I owe you one.
