Once again….

Friday, December 18th, 2009 by Ian

…it seems like no one is reading the blog.  THAT’S OKAY.  If it’s time is passed, so be it.  I will keep it going, but will drop it back to what it was originally intended to be — just a diary of the more major events in my life and the thoughts that may or may not go along with them.

I’d just like to be able to look back in 5 years and remember what was going on in, say, December 2009.

If you have any other ideas where to go with it, let me know.  I’m open to whatever.

Schroeder 1993-2009

Monday, December 7th, 2009 by Ian

We took Schroeder to the vet’s today.  He had been failing, but in the last couple days he stopped eating and drinking.  It was time.  I know we did the right thing for him but that doesn’t make it easier.

I’m a little surprised how hard hit’s hitting me.  Shelley’s being stoic, but she’ll miss him too.

We were hoping he’d hang on until Dylan got back for Christmas, but I guess that just wasn’t to be.

Poor old guy.

Upgrades!

Some online stuff…

I just threw up Dylan’s Bungy videos on YouTube.  You might want to have a look.  The “Thrillogy”:

The first one was the original Bungy jump bridge where it all started.

The last one.  Can you tell he’s comfortable with it!?

5 Years on…

Sunday, November 1st, 2009 by Ian

Just a note to point out it’s been 5 years since Dad’s death.

Today I drove out the the cemetery and took a few pictures.  Cold, sunny day.

I miss the old guy.  Have a Rye and Ginger for him.
