Looking forward to 2009


A happy and healthy New Year to all who come by this blog.  2008 was a very mixed year for me, with some low points, but balanced well by some very special times. 


A power cut this evening had me wondering if 2008 would have the last laugh.  But no.


In the candlelight, Bertie showed off the bald patch on his neck, where the vet took a blood sample, but hiding his two bald legs, the results of failed attempts to find a blood vessel.  As he has recovered so well, it seems a positive note on which to start 2009.
