Old lives and old friends

Back from the Optometrist, 20:20 vision :). On the way back, we drove through our old neighborhood. It seems different now in a strange way. A place where we lived for 3 years, (almost to the day), and seemed so normal at the time, now is somewhat odd. Almost as if we had the opportunity to peel back the curtain to an alternate universe where we still lived there. I couldn't believe that was part of our life, it just seems like we'd have never lived there given our current place in our life. If you squint and look at our old house, you wonder if we had ever lived there at all.

On a sad note, Cathy Santarsiero of The Christmas Corgi lost one of her corgis today... on the operating table during a C-section. Sadly the puppies were lost too. This was an award winning bitch - Westminster Kennel Club award of merit, Eukanuba wins etc. Its always sad to lose a dog. Having lost my Spike on Boxing Day 2007, its not easy to lose a pet. I look at Gimli and wonder how all of a sudden he's almost 2. He's been with us for just under 2 years, but it feels like he's been with us forever. When he does go to the bridge, how long will it feel then? Sadly, not long enough...
