Greetings friends and fans. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your guest reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel's ghostwriter. I want to say a heartfelt thanks to all of you who have left comforting comments on our last post about our ace reporter Chester crossing the Rainbow Bridge a couple weeks ago. I'm hoping I can write now without crying. (I'm having a really hard time with this loss.)
It's strange not having a dog in the house. I keep looking at all the spots where Chester used to spend his time, and now he's not there.
The Evil Squirrel Cartel is taking advantage of Chester's absence.
|Hey, where's dogface? He still owes me 50,000 peanut butter sandwiches!|
Just for that, I'm putting red hot pepper on all the seeds and suet cakes in that feeder. Haha!
Moving on, in keeping Chester's tradition, I went out into the yard and I tried looking up, and looking down to find some amazing things.
Unlike our neighbors in Buffalo NY to the west of us, we only got a thin coating of snow. The snow plow was hardly needed on our street.
Since then, we've seen some spectacular, and ever changing skies.
Today we had some warmer weather, and what was left of our snow melted.
Some of you might be wondering what will happen to The Daily Bone in the future. I hope to keep it going. After all, there are always amazing things to find right in my own yard just by looking up, and looking down. I also hope to get back to writing some more stories and finding out how I might get some novels published.
I am still working at the nursing home, but only one day a week. I think I can handle that. It'll be nice to see my team and patients once a week. Besides, I don't think old "battle axe" nurses like me ever completely retire.
By spring I'm thinking of maybe taking "applications" for the job of reporter here at The Daily Bone. I hope angel Chester helps me find just the right pup for the job!
I wish everyone a Happy New Year!
Thanks again for all the lovely tributes, and comforting words from our dear blog friends.
