I Has a Sad.

It has been a sad weekend around the ranch.

The Bag Lady received a phone call on Friday telling her that one of her favourite relatives (her dad's cousin) passed away. Granted, it was not totally unexpected -- he was, after all, 95 years old, but it still makes her sad to think he is no longer with us.

As if that wasn't enough, on Saturday morning, the Bag Lady received a phone call from her mother-in-law, telling her that one of the Rancher's uncles had passed away early that morning! This was a bit of a surprise because, although he was not a young man, he seemed to be in good health.

The Bag Lady is hoping that the old adage about bad things coming in threes is not true and that this will be all the bad news for quite some time. And if anyone wants to get in touch with her, use email, or smoke signals or pony express, 'cause she is not answering the phone anymore!

Rest in Peace, Denny and Walter.

I'm sorry, Bag Lady. Even with a long full life, it always seems too soon to lose a loved one.

Oh I am so sorry for your loss! It sounds like they were both much beloved by you and your family.

I'm so sorry. That's the problem with really terrific people-- they leave a hole in our lives if we outlive them.

I'm off now to find me some friends and relatives I won't like...

I am sad with you.
I hope we get to 95. That is 45 years past my husband! What a grand life that would be.
