Because Blogger's "Adult warning" often goes into a perpetual loop (isn't working properly), I will be making all new posts at my WordPress blog. You can follow it even if you do not have a WordPress Account. There're also my Twitter and my Tumblr blog, my Facebook and my Google+ page and my group.
(Update: Blogger hasn't fixed its problem with the "adult warning". Will go back to posting at my WordPress blog)

A long grind



It's a warm evening, and I should be content, even pleased with life.  And yet ....
Well, the truth is, I'm a little down this Saturday night.  Perhaps it is because I'm not drinking (bad for me; and I must lose some weight).  Or perhaps because a very dear little dog of ours is close to the end of his life, is blind and deaf and incontinent.  So much suffering, everywhere.  Or perhaps because my friends have repeatedly let me down.  Maybe because I am in pain?  Because it will take a decade until all our debts are paid off and I can retire?

I don't know.  But even just mentioning it here helps a little.

Goodnight, all, goodnight.

My heart goes out to you and your family - your dog has been a treasured family member and the last days of a loved animal's life are bound to leave you feeling 'down'.
