Tack on a Wall

   Posted by: crazyBobcat    in Daily

23 January 2010
I don’t remember the specifics of the day; but, I do remember that late in the afternoon I dropped my wife at an antique mall in which she’d never been, and I walked down to the nearby El Chico for a well-earned Dos Equiis. While there I snapped this photo of some tack they had hanging on the wall as decoration.

Today we celebrated the natal day of our friend, Donny, with dinner at Texas Land & Cattle somewhere in the mid-cities (we got lost, and frankly I don’t remember where we landed).

This was our starter course.
Happy Birthday, mate!

Stonehenge

Stonehenge. The magnificent, magical, mysterious place in the South of England has been reproduced in lovely detail on my desk.
Stonehenge
Yep.
A dear friend of mine on a recent trip to Europe returned with this little model carefully tucked in her luggage for me. It now graces my desk.
Thanks, Karen!
(…and, Happy Birthday Terrill!)

Cheers.

Tiny Joshua Tree

Mary gave me a Joshua Tree starter kit back in November. In mid-December I planted it. In mid-January this is what I had.
Tiny Joshua Tree
It took about 6 weeks to show green.
Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s going to make it. :-(

Shit.
This is embarassing! I’m over a month behind.
What’s more embarassing is that I don’t have a photo for this day.

Dangit.

Friends at Brix

16 January 2009
We finally had opportunity to take two wonderful people to a delightful restaurant we found late last year over in Ft. Worth. Allyson & Rod have done so much for us over the last couple of years, taking them to dinner seems hardly an appropriate thank you.

Thank you my very dear friends!

Three Pub Guys

PubGuys Minus One 4

3 February 2010

If I haven’t said it lately, I should. I am really proud of these guys! Tonight’s show was excellent, despite the all-sports format of the Wednesday nights when they’re at the Firehouse Grill. I was concerned that we would have a smaller crowd this week, but even that turned out alright. And, Kelly got to be there—that was an extra-added bonus!

Gathered for Bert

A Room Full of Friends

2 February 2010

I don’t know if the groundhog saw his shadow today or not. I was busy.

Normally, I would have paid attention to such news. But, today was the date set for the Memorial Gathering for Bert Pfeiffer. Kelly and John flew in from Ohio and I picked them up at the airport. We didn’t have much time to visit before we had to be ready to go. From 2 to 4 p.m. what had to be nearly 250 people gathered in a large room at a funeral home and found some flavour of comfort in our grief by being together. At about 2:30 the first person took the podium, told a story about Bert, and started the avalanche of the outpouring of memories. Any who wished to were invited to speak, and speak they did. The collective family of friends gathered spent the next hour and half both laughing and crying—and it was beautiful.

A large group of us descended upon the Yucatan Taco Stand for dinner afterward, and then Kelly and John and I returned home. It is so good to have them here with us. Family is so important and we are so blessed. Healing is a slow process, but it’s easier when the experience is shared with those we love.

Blue and Gold Brocade . . . and Bert

Blue and Gold Brocade

1 February 2010

Two days in a row . . . I remembered! This is is a photo of the gorgeous blue and gold brocade that Glenda chose last week for her underskirt and sleeves. I had to move it off my work table to get ready for my fitting tonight with Dan. It was good to see him, and get to talk with him about Bert. I hadn’t followed up like I should have—hadn’t talked to him since the night I had to call him with the news.

The New Normal . . . damn it, Bert

The New Normal

31 January 2010

Since most of what I’m writing about this week, I’m having to do from memory, the details are missing. I made notes on the calendar about some days, which is my only savior—but on Sunday, the only note is the one which tells me we had dinner at No Frills. Ironically, I knew that one, because today is the first day since Bert died that I’ve remembered to take a photo. So, as far as I can tell, we didn’t do anything during the day . . . I’ll update this if I remember anything—or Kyle does. But, dinner at No Frills felt good . . . felt almost normal.
