Love Actually

I often joke that after Malcolm died I sold my truck and put my stuff into storage but it wasn’t just a soundbyte.  Nothing I do or say ever is.

But after almost a decade, tucked away on the I-35 corridor in a 10×10 closet, it was time for a reckoning. That’s an interesting word.  Reckoning.

Its origin can be found in old English which gave rise to such concepts of calculation and conclusion.

2014 is the 10 year anniversary since Malcolm was first diagnosed.  How many miles, how many years have I walked since then?  How many people have we touched and inspired?  How many lifelong friendships have we forged?

It’s incalculable.  Just like love.

Another true joke is that in short order, in 2004 my dog got cancer, my girlfriend left me and she took the truck.  The pathetic irony is well, I’m from Texas.  But that year I was all alone I watched a movie Love Actually.

You see, I’m the last person to watch romantic comedies or really anything to do with Hugh Grant but it spoke to me about the messiness of life and love and how little I knew about it all.  But I’ve watched it every year since and today is no different.

Happy XMAS.  Love actually.

——–

YBD’s Notes 1:  There was a reckoning tho – I cleaned out my storage locker most of which ended up in a landfill, the rest I’ve given away to friends and family.  I am unencumbered.  Except by love. 
THE JOURNEY CONTINUES

BLIND SENIOR LAB’S BEST FRIEND IS FEISTY STRAY CAT

blinddog-cat-lgTervel, a blind 14-year-old lab, was having a hard time making his way around the world. That is, until an unexpected friend, a cranky stray cat named Puddytat, came to live with his family.

The sweet chocolate lab is blind and partially deaf. He kept getting hurt because he’d bump into things, so he would spend a lot of time in his basket, letting the world pass him by.

But then his owner, Anne, inherited a stray cat named Puddytat.

Puddytat isn’t the sweetest cat, admits Anne. When the cat first arrived, he wasn’t very nice around the other cats in the house but, for some reason he took a liking to Tervel, who brought out a different side of him. “He must have realized Tervel was a bit vulnerable,” says Anne.

CELEBRATE THE MAGIC OF THE HOLIDAYS WITH “FOREVER HOME”

If you ever believed that dreams could come true, this is the film for you. We suspect that every dog dreams of a home and family, and that most children are dreaming of a pet to call their very own. We think that this film is perfect for holiday gatherings of families and friends. We hope you’ll share it with yours.

Halo is proud to sponsor the Olate Dogs, the canine stars of “Forever Home“. This talented troupe of dogs tours the country demonstrating the potential of rescue dogs. We are honored to know that these high-energy dogs eat only Halo Vigor.

Want to see more of the Olate dogs in film? “Forever Home” is the third #RescueFilm starring the Olate Dogs. Their first film, “Le Sauvetage” is set in Paris, while their second film “Dog’s Best Friend” is a decidedly American story.

Halo
