Yesterday Bear had surgery to remove a cracked tooth and 3 tumors- here is his head where one tumor was removed- he is doing well and back at home with his mama’s!


By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,

Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.

Where the friends of man and woman do run,

When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,

Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.

On this golden land, they wait and they play,

Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,

For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.

Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,

Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,

Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.

All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,

Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For just at that instant, their eyes have met;

Together again, both person and pet.

So they run to each other, these friends from long past,

The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,

Has turned into joy once more in each heart.

They embrace with a love that will last forever,

And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.

Bear made it through his surgery- his tonsil’s were still 3 times the normal size. Here they are- YUCK! Vet said first time he ever photographed tonsils. Bear is recovering well.



Went to Target to get an optical audio cable (ours broke) and while I was waiting in the car with Bear for Linda- I heard birds- lots of birds- look in the tree- it’s covered inside with birds!



Prior to leaving for the River- Bear threw up blood again (4:30 a.m.). He has tonsillitis (3 times the size they should be). He is on an antibiotic and appears to be recovering well- he had a good time at the River.



While we were on our cruise, we took an excursion to Grand Cayman to swim with the Stingrays. This was the only thing my mom wanted to do on this trip, so we made sure to take her. She absolutely loved it, and so did we (although I was a bit timid). I finally uploaded these to FlickR for anyone that wants to see them. 🙂

Bear has slipped back a bit- bringing him back to the vet’s today to hopefully stay in front of this- prayers please- he is my ring bearer…

Her smile makes my day!

Met with the minister- working out the ceremony, picked the music (above is song after vows- there will be 3 songs sung and instrumental to walk in), got pedi/mani’s, Linda is tanning, Karen is not!, got new earrings, slimmed down the menu, ordered food, made announcement, so we are almost there…

“Face Of Love”

until tonight 
 my heart was just half full 
 i'd never known the fruit which fed the soul 
 but now i see what may put to rest my longing
 for i have seen, the face of love
 the grace of god, the face of love
 in silence i feared my heart 
 would remain words unheard 
 inside a separateness of skin 
 but now i know that the skin just veils the soul
 for i have seen, the face of love 
 the grace of god, the face of love
 so take my hand and knowing 
 with it i also give my heart 
 wanting never to be separate again 
 let eternity begin
 if you were flame 
 i'd allow myself to be consumed completely 
 were you wind i would wish you pass through me 
 but now i know that the skin just veils the soul
 for i have seen, the face of love 
 the grace of god, the face of love
