What Up, Dawgs 'n Kitties?

And I don't mean the 4-legged kind, but the 2-legged ones who are supposed to take care of the 4-leggers!

Today, I had a couple of very good things happen and I'd like to tell you about them and tell you how they interrelate, okay?

First good thing is that a very good internet friend of mine told me he appreciated my being non-materialistic, caring for and loving my wife, the world and the people in it. I didn't realize I was projecting that, but I am glad he recognizes that in me, because I tend to have low self esteem at times.

Joke: When I don't feel particularly energetic, I sometimes complain that I have "Low Self-Steam".

Back to the subject.....

The second good thing is that on my Yahoo Finance page I found this.

Isn't that a great story? Talk about non-materialism (is that a word?)! This little family is doing everything just right and laughing in the face of adversity and that's where I get MY strength.

Here are just a few others: Michael Landon, Elizabeth Edwards (I hate that bastard husband of hers and am glad he's not our president) Patrick Swayze and so many others we never hear about.

I believe.... that at some point in our lives, we come to the point where we don't fear death anymore.

I have feared it all my adult life until now. The reason is because I was afraid I wouldn't get to do some good before the "Grim Reaper" took me out, and I think that is the same fear a lot of folks have: that they'll have to go before they can make a difference.

Luckily, with the help of some very dear and loving friends I was able to do that in several different ways, and now I am happy to go when the time comes.
For my friend Ed and all those who feel the way he does about life:

Please don't forget about the "4-legged" ones I mentioned earlier, support your local shelter, call them and ask what is needed and please click on the icon below to feed them. You'll make a difference. I guarantee it.

Thanks and see you next time!
