Well, if you aren't finishing the RR any time soon, how about a cute dog pic or two? Carl Winslow has to be getting big!

Well, fuck. You're going to feel like an ass in about five seconds.

Back in mid January, I let Carl out like I do every morning. Made some coffee, did some laundry, and discovered he was MIA. Found him out front, in a ditch. Yeah. It fucking DESTROYED me and left me circling the drain, drowning in my own pity, guilt, and self loathing. I want to say more, but I'll save you the details.

Sorry to burst your bubble, man. It's been a rough winter.

RIP Carl Winslow. He was a scholar, and a gentleman.

I didn't know you got a new pup. I'm glad to hear it. Carl Winslow's legacy for chasing tail will live on!

This is true. However, I am still nursing a bruised ego and have yet to really tell anyone about her. I can't shake off the impression that I'm just some kid who has broken a toy due to negligence only to go out, have his parents buy another, and continue on like nothing happened. This was a life, a critter with a personality, one that I was responsible for.

But... yeah, I got another dog. The loneliness was too much. Though I am still mourning, and even teary eyed as I write this, I need the companionship. For once in my life.

Go figure.

RIP Carl Wilson.

Not much you can do about dogs and cars, sometimes it just happens, you are not responsible. Good move on the new pup.

Damn, Alex. I'm so sorry.

If you already had posted that, I obviously missed it.

It was easy to see what a great pup and friend he was.

I lost my best buddy of 10 years in the fall. I know how it feels. Sometimes they are around for a long time, sometimes not. It's never long enough.

Hope you and the new furry friend are doing well. Mine is laying by my side destroying a nylabone. Life is much better with a pup in the house.

I know you can't help feeling that way, but you know (and so do we) that it's not really your fault. Sometimes bad shit just happens and there's nothing you can do about it. I'll definitely miss Carl Winslow, he was a good man. Glad you got a new mutt to hang out though. Carl would want it that way.

Meetup

Just gonna throw this on here. I'm kinda surprised I haven't done this already. I've got a bit of a moto meetup going on at the ranch in SW Oregon. Info can be found here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=971749

All are welcome.
