Wildfire,
So glad you did so well at dentist! Nothing worse than have a toothache and sore mouth. Hopefully you will be back to noraml in no time.

Christina - I hope everything is going well. *hugs*


Hug your loved ones. I found out this morning that my friend's dad killed himself yesterday. Thier relationship wasn't very good and she hadn't talked to him for a few years, but it is still upsetting. I have never met him but it was still unnerving.

Gee, Squeak - how very upsetting for her and for you. Not having talked for a few years probably makes it worse. Hugs to both you and your friend, I am sure you will be a comfort to her.

Squeaker, I'm so sorry. I had a sister-in-law who committed suicide....it's a very difficult thing to deal with. Please let your friend know that she couldn't have done anything to prevent this. Often that is how people feel...."if I'd only known I could have done something"....if he'd wanted help he would have found a way to let someone know.

Squeak, I'm so sorry about your friend and the horrible loss of her father. She's lucky to have a friend like you to lean on.

I'm a bit sad today, I lost my fish, Piranah - a Jack Dempsy cichlid, some time over the weekend. A fish?? Big whoop right? Well, this fish has been with me FOREVER - literally almost 1/2 as long as I've been alive. She was a tiny little thing when my Mom was still living in CA and my best friend was pregnant with her daughter who's now 11. Piranah moved with me when my husband and I moved out together in '92 and she survived jumping out of the tank and living on the carpet for who knows how long before I came home, found her and threw her dried body back in the tank. When we had to move in with his parents she came along even though my MIL was strongly against any pet of mine. When I divorced, she survived 12 hours in the car in a 1/4 tank of water strapped into my passenger seat on the drive to Oregon. She'd been blind for about the last 4 years and you had to tap on the lid to let her know food was up there. To the best we could figure she was over 14 years old.
So, I lost my not-so-little fish (she was about 5 inches long) and I feel a little silly, but I'm sad.

I wish her well and thank her for being around with me through so many of my life's journeys.

Terri

Terri - sorry about your fishy. They may not do much like dogs or cats, but you still can get attached to them. (I have a very fat goldfish - Yates. Robby I had for 4 years before he died, which is old for a goldfish) Esp. one you have had so long and has been around through so many changes.

I am so sorry Punkin. Pets are members of the family, and losing them is very painful. Don't feel like you need to trivialize losing your fish. When our cat died a few years back (at 16 1/2 years) we felt awful. We didn't get another cat for 3 years, because we felt it wouldn't be the same. Wasn't until we had Meggie foisted upon us that we got another cat. And now we love her too!!

Terri, so sorry about your beloved fish. That's a long time to have a fish... we have some, and you can get quite attached to some of them. No need to apologize for being sad about THAT! hugs
xoxo

Hey Punkin
SOrry to hear about your fish, Piranah! That is a long time to have a fish, WOW! You must have taken such great care of him. Never feel silly for a loss. Lossing a pet is always hard!

Punkin-sorry that you lost your pet fish, it is hard no matter what type of pet you have, especially if they have been the one constant through troubled times and moves.
