PhxBarb, I saw your post earlier but felt too emotional to say anything. I love cats, dogs too, and I know the pain of losing one. Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your sweet baby.

On a happier note, I've been to Sanibel and Captiva Islands for shell hunting. They are magical places. Always love the sea anyway. But spring may arrive even here in the north and we may be out on the beach searching for shells, ordinary mundane shells, but at least out on the beach searching for shells and breathing in that fresh salt air.

Thank you all for the good wishes. Callie passed last night at home. I will miss her forever.

I think it's impossible to ever forget something that has endeared itself to our heart for so long. I still look at GG and call her Mimsy (I'm getting better tho). I watch and compare which is not fair, but am finding that GG is a pretty interesting kitty. I will never ever get over their intelligence.

Bless you Barb. Thought about you this morning. A friend of mine used to tell me "and this, too, shall pass."

(((((Barb))))). So sorry to hear your furbaby is gone. I look at mine and wonder... My older one is now 17 and younger one is 10. So far they are both doing just fine but I know that can change fast. Try not to be too sad but I know you'll miss her for a long while.

Hugs Barb! It is so hard to accept such a loss, pets really become so much a part of your family. Hard to express feelings, so sending lots and lots of hugs your way!

Oh Barb, it is so tough to say goodbye to our furry loves. Hugs to you, and prayers.

How many of us have looked at our "posts per day" in our statistics section? I have 5.36, which I think is a lot - perhaps too much in the sense that I question whether I should be on here that much. But just now I was noticing that I see a certain poster a lot, and I checked his or her posts per day: 27.84! And the join date was in September, 2007. Imagine averaging almost 28 posts per day here over a period of eight and a half years!

That harms nobody, of course, and we are all free to participate as much or as little as we care to. I just found it surprising. There must be posters who have more than that - it would be highly unlikely that I hit upon the record holder by chance.

so of course I had to look- joined 2007 and average 0.33 per day. To be fair, I believe lately my average is several per day. I think I have had long periods (like maybe even years?) of not even checking out the forums. Lately for sure I check more than once a day. (and I am still working full time).
Very interesting

some posters are so pleasant, informative, inspiring, encouraging, whatever, that you are always happy to see them .

and some are not.

My average is probably less than it would be if I was not encouraged to take a 3 day break periodically

and if I did not hurry back on occasion to delete posts better left unsaid

I delete so many posts! It's a nice cathartic to write and post sometimes, but then I think of the three rules I try to follow for posting:

Is it true?
Is it necessary?
Is it kind?

The kind one is the reason for most of my deletions, with the necessary one next and I always tell the truth... as I see it.
