  2. I hope you know I feel for you, and hold you in my prayers, but I have to tell you my first thought upon seeing your title to this. I thought you were referencing the possible elimination of my beloved Celtics by the New York Knicks this afternoon (Sunday). Of course, even a smidgen of thought would have dismissed that notion, as you have proven yourself time and again to have approximately zero interest in such things. Toonman, on the other hand, if I recall correctly, does enjoy the odd sporting event, and if he is a Knickerbockers fan, I will feel less angst this afternoon than I normally would have. Instead, I will feign happiness for him.

  3. Some things are just for a special friend and aren't the same without them. If I were there, I would love to wander with you and you could show me what you and Wendy enjoyed. Hugs.

    all the wonderful times you shared with her on
    those special walkabouts.
