The past year, three long time good friends died. It’s hard to imagine a world without any of them, yet there still is time for happiness, the blessings of friends like Terry. Today is his birthday and I celebrate it with a hearty skål!
Health and long life, my friend! You are a treasure!
Terry on the first day of Kindergarten. We became friends at least two, maybe three years earlier when my family moved next door to his family.
What? No kitty photos today?
I’m Sorry. It’s good to have the memories
Yes. so true.
Happy birthday to Terry. I can’t imagine losing three friends in a year.
It was shocking, believe it.
I stand with you in your sorrow at the losses of old friends, and joy at the birthday of your long time friend Terry. Wishing a happy birthday to Terry, and many more years to both of you, Doug!
Thanks! While my health is “iffy”, I am in constant care of people who don’t put up with my guy-like tendency to think any symptom will go away if I ignore it, and Terry is blessed with excellent health.
Sorry that you have lost so many dear friend, Doug.
Still, glad that you have so many more. Hugs.
Thanks! I think we survivors look like we’ll be around for a long to time more!
Kinda fun, too! Thanks.
A great loss, dear weggieboy – Do enjoy this day with Terry ! Happy birthday 🙂
It’s COVID-19 time, so we celebrated from afar!
I’m so sorry about the loss of your friends. We too have lost friends, and I know how hard it is. I’m glad that you have your friend Terry to treasure.
I have a positive attitude about such things. While I wasn’t ready for their passings, their bodies were in terrible shape because of injuries and disease. It was time, and time always wins.
OM Gosh, that last photo! 🥰 I’m sorry about your friends, Doug. I offer a virtual hug for you, my friend. Happy Sunday. 🙏🏻
Thanks, John. Their times had come. While their families and friends wanted them for longer, their bodies were suffering injuries and diseases that made the quality of life increasingly problematic.
I am sorry you lost 3 friends recently. Happy Birthday to Terry!
Thanks! Time catches up with us all.
Good friends are truly a treasure….chuq
