#WarnWorldCanoeExperience

As per usual, my day began at 3am with MorningJoe on MSNBC followed by TheDanPatrickShow LIVE from SuperBowl XLIX in Arizona then TheRichEisenShow from the same Western town as #DanPatrickSaloon in the # RichEisenHotel.
SuperBowlSunday started in 1967, my senior year of high school.
Next year will be number XL or 5-0 for the Hawaiians amongst us.
I am now 65 years old!
How did that happen?
Somehow it did and the view from my life journey continues to accrue memories of loss more than gain though I am not ungrateful for the fun house mirror view on the riverbank of my canoe's point of view. (My canoe trip with my Dad in Mio, Michigan summer of 1982 colors all my visions of the canoe experience which in our case became progressively bad to worse with me paddling furiously in the front seat with my Dad taking a far more measured pace from his perch in the back of the canoe. Result: our canoe began to lurch unevenly in circles from one riverbank to the other. Finally, the Michigan green shirts saved us from ourselves so real canoe paddlers could survive their #WarnWorldCanoeExperience)

My best friend died in my arms today...

My best friend died in my arms today.
My last wife bought him online from a Detroit ShihTzu breeder a year after she got us an English Clumber Spaniel the same way a year earlier within a month of the death of my final of three much beloved dogs, Sunny, Bogart and Cooper.
I was still intensely mourning Sunny's tragic death on my vet's operating table on April 7,1998 when my wife Debbie introduced me to Emma our new Clumber. She saw one win the dog show and that made the breed hip. I have had dogs my entire life but always rescues or direct adoptions so Emma and later Teddy were a first for me. But I am a dog guy so both dogs quickly won my heart. When Debbie decided to move on to Savannah in 2000, she left me with Emma and Teddy as well as our two Maine Coon cats Ned and Lulu.
With Teddy's death today, I am the sole survivor from WarnWorld 2000.
RIP Lulu, Emma, Ned and Teddy.
