    If'n ya celebrate it! I start my 4-day off tomorrow morning. I am looking forward to having a relaxing weekend with the wife. Things have been very stressful for us this past week. Work for me has been extremely busy and taxing. I had a fatal car accident on Tuesday, a girl my age. I don't care how many of these I go on, it just isn't normal to see those types of things.

    It has just been one of those weeks, ya know?
    It was on our Southern border with Novi, but we both responded and arrived at the same time.

    On top of that we had to put our 12 year old Golden Hailey down. Her cancer got the best of her, and she was unable to breath. My wife just started her new job at our vet, she had to leave after an hour on her third day there so we could bring Hailey back to the vet to have her put down.

    My wife was a wreck, it is just not the same having her constantly under my feet in the kitchen waiting for me to drop a piece of venison so she could scoop it right up. I fed her more than her fair share of wild game. lol

    Anywho, I hope everyone has a great weekend, I am gonna relax, smoke some pipes, have a few cocktails. My Mom, brother and his wife are coming over for Easter dinner on Sunday.

    Sorry to hear about your rough week and even more Hailey. :(

    I have my own holiday coming up this weekend (Passover) and will also be relaxing, smoking, drinking, and hanging with family.
    What the heck am I going to drink though? Beer and liquor are not kosher for Passover, only that crappy Mogen David and Manischewitz wines!
    Too bad I am not that religious...I am drinking whatever I want! lol
    My best to you and the Mrs. We will hook up soon after the holidays.

    Happy Easter, Passover, and whatever else is this weekend to all my extended family in the PSF.

    I hope for find yourself rejuvenated by today. Sorry to hear about your dog. We had a beloved "mutt" I had to put down last year about this time, and I still miss her. Jordan wasn't a hunting dog or anything, just a loyal and protective family pet.

    Easter here is going to involve an egg hunt, a brisket, and family & friends. It's a tradition we started when we lived in San Angelo, and we've carried it on since 1997 - but now it involves in-laws (well, soon-to-be in-laws). I hope this holiday season (Easter and Passover) finds all here at PSF in good health and spirits.

    Happy Easter to all of you.

    Regarding the loss of your friend, your companion, and the one other people may have mistakenly referred to as a "dog," I offer you my deepest sympathy. I have had several of the best dogs that ever lived (*absolute fact, not bias), and want you to know I Know how hard the transition can be. Man and dog. Dog and man. Hard to say who needs who more.

    Pack a bowl, put on the song "Old King" by Neil Young, and lock yourself in a room for a few hours (you're gonna cry; I'll guard the door).

    Happy Easter and Passover everyone. I am being a bad boy today and skipped Mass. The wife had to work and this is the day that everyone who never makes it to Mass does. Too crowded and I figure I don't need to be in a specific building to celebrate what today is about.
