Ottawa & Claude

– This will be my last post until I return from Ottawa on Sunday. I look forward to meeting a lot of new folks there and seeing some great films.

This has been a difficult week, and I’ll be glad to get away for a few days. Hopefully, the Yankees will clinch the pennant while I’m gone. I’ll miss the champagne celebration.

While I’m gone, I’ve decided to be emotional and let my Claude have the spotlight.

Today, was his Dancing Day. He died in my arms this morning.

    Tomorrow shall be my dancing day:
    I would my true love did so chance
    To see the legend of my play,
    To call my true love to my dance:

    Sing O my love, O my love, my love, my love;
    This have I done for my true love.

    Then up to heaven I did ascend,
    Where now I dwell in sure substance
    On the right hand of God, that man
    May come unto the general dance.

    Sing O my love, O my love, my love, my love;
    This have I done for my true love.

    I am very saddened to hear this news about Claude. I know that you and Heidi will miss him enormously, and you have my sympathies.

    I am so very sorry. What fearful symmetry: my beloved 21-year old, peach-faced lovebird (Alex) died in my hands this morning. When Jerry told me about Claude, esp. so soon after Ruby, I truly felt overwhelmed by grief. Two beautiful spirits left the earth today.
    My deepest condolences,

    I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. That you knew it was coming for some time never lessens the pain of the loss. We will all be mourning with you and your family.

    I remember Ruby, but I never met Claude. Sorry to hear Michael.

    I’m so sorry, Michael. The loss of two loved pets within such a short period of time is so very sad. I hope you find another to fill the emptiness those two have left in your heart.
    My deepest sympathy and condolences for your loss.
