Yes, we do remember that day. You were pretty young at the time. I was 36, still young. My father didn’t get himself medically checked very often. His heart was enlarged and he didn’t know it. Thanks for checking this blog. I’ve been distracted by facebook in recent days and find that it can easily become too much.

I enjoy reading this blog among the blogs i check. re the death of a father, i suspect most of us never forget the day. i know i don’t (july 11, 1972 – i was just shy of 21 at the time – re my father, sudden stroke, died the day of the stroke. perhaps modern pharmacology would have allowed both your father and mine to stay around longer.)

I’ve been tracing them on both of our lands and also across the street. Raccoon tracks are much different. Grey fox can climb trees too, and they sometimes even nest in the tops of trees. I looked it up. The track and footprint sizes match pretty well……. The number of people that know us who actually read this blog are pretty few and far between, so, I think most of those who might read this post already know your age! And the others could care less and don’t know us from holes in the grounds. 😉

Felt bad I didn’t get a chance to visit with you yesterday. Ran some errands myself and went for another therapeutic massage. I think I saw some little fox-like tracks by the corner of my barn, too! And I saw your snow shoe tracks. Well, now everybody knows how old I am. Not that I try and hide it much. All that fish you’ve been consuming is really paying off, eh?
