Speaking of friends, Madame Olga, one of my best friends, has passed away. This is a very bitter pill to swallow. We had so many good times together and now it's over. I loved her. But life (and death) goes on. It's difficult to imagine a future without Madame Olga. She was my confidant. I miss her sorely. I hope there is a heaven and she is looking down on all of us. I love you, Madame Olga.
One of the hardest parts of getting older is the friends you lose to disease, accidents, and death. I've spoken with people older than me and they all agree that losing friends is one of the worst things about growing older. Those who survive the longest may find themselves simply "running out" of friends. Lifelong friends can never be replaced. I hate to say it, but I almost wish I pass away before too many more of my friends do. I love life, but not a lonely one. Well, I guess as long as Señor Zanza and Junior are around, I'll be OK.
Here's a cute picture of a bird I got from the internet:
Oh my, such language. Mr. drewzepmeister, do you know what kind of bird this is? It's a naughty bird!
Here's an interesting story from Racine County Eye: "Razing Begins On Building To Make Way For Machinery Row" Who wants to live next to the stinking Root River? The Badger Uniform building rehab was along similar lines. It utterly failed and bankrupted. Guess who was the realtor behind it all? Mr. Lying Mayor Dickert, that's who. Machinery Row is delusional thinking on Mr. Liar's part. Millions of dollars which would be better spent on feeding and educating the poor people of Racine will be flushed down the river. What a shame. This is what happens when you have criminals in office.
