the barking dog chronicles

The full moon is shining bright over the neighbor’s roof. It is still dark. Johnny Cash is singing in the background. I have classic country music playing on the little Echo spy device here in the office. 

I had a little acid reflux issue that drove me from bed early this morning. So it goes. I fought acid reflux for the better part of a decade, finally recovering about ten years ago. Now, not surprisingly, it is back. 

Yesterday was cold and raw with a North wind and spitting occasional snow. Today will be a little warmer and we are supposed to be back in the sixties Sunday. 

I think after it gets light I will go visit my grandson this morning. I haven’t been down to see him for a month or so. It’s been 2-1/2 years and I still cry every time I visit.

How about a little audio for your Saturday entertainment?

Have a great day.

Dear Joe,

“Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give, but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go.”

—Jamie Anderson

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your grief.
