The week has not started out great. Spencer's Veterinarian asked for a urine sample to run some tests. I had no idea what that intailed (get it?). I had to run behind him with a cake pan waiting for him to lift a leg. The sidewalks are icy and Spencer was offended." What are you sticking under my private parts big guy?"
Toni's Aunt Justine died, and today was her funeral.She would have turned 91 next week. When you live to that age most of your family and friends have passed on already. A lifetime filled with family & friends, but few people left to attend your funeral. I guess the good part is that they are all waiting on the other side for her with open arms. But the service was lovely and we had about twenty of her remaining friends & neighbors back to our house for coffee & cake.
After we cleaned up we went to another wake for a family friend Pat Moore. Her family has been in Wurtsboro for generations and she had seven children What a different experience. People were lined outside the funeral home and while Pat's passing is terribly sad the wake was more like a party in her honor. Wurtsboro is such a small town, but the number of people there was just amazing. I forget we all know so many people from our lovely village.
Toni says death comes in threes , so everyone be careful out there, we have an opening to fill.
