I was listening for the invading hoards of racoons coming to get out kibble. Really. Everyone knows that the racoons are coming to take the kibble, and I was watching an old western movie once. The guide put is ear to the ground to listen for the bad guys.
Well, the ground is not that comfortable, so I figured that the table was probably just as good. I had my eyes closed so I could hear better.
Thank you all for your well wishes. My dad's family misses his father furry much, but they are learning to move forward. My dad says that the cancer didn't cause any pain and he died with all his fambly around him and in his sleep. Everyone was able to say good bye.
