On a sad note
Rusty passed away on 30 March 2008. We continued to give him extra fluids once every 4 days to a week right up to the end. We are sure it added time and quality to his life. Please see our update to his page @ Rusty.htm. He was a wonderfully funny and loving part of our family and we miss him very much.
But life goes on and we grow...
So far 2008 has been a good year and retirement is going well. For the first time that Steve can remember, he is keeping up with chores around the house and the nasty weeds that invaded our front and back yards two years ago. Yes, Steve has taken to slowly, weed by weed, pulling up the "flick seed" weeds that are just a little too successful at spreading. Steve is doing many other things but that is for another update to this site.
Milyn is working with her artwork and selling some in several areas. She would love to do more in every area and sell to the top markets (as I know she is worthy of) but life sends those extra activities into her life as into all of ours' it comes... (that was easy to understand). But her creative nature is undaunted and very productive - she is a wonder and life is better because of her being part of it.
Our parakeet still lives and is getting old enough to actually make some 'happy' sounds. For years we wanted to call him Screech but that seems to be passing. We hope it continues as our last parakeet made the most wonderful beeps and squeeks, rolls and whistles - time will tell.
So, we are doing well and hope all is well with you, too.
hugs your way dear friends...
