Sorry to hear Figgy. Our two dogs are very much a part of the family and can't imagine them just not being around the house.

Im so sorry for you Figgles Sad That stings. When I lost my boy I read quotes from people on Facebook reciting things like " Between hello and goodbye there was love", well, yes, there was of course, I loved my cat but, the anger in me rose up & I cried "but why my cat" and how I hated God and all my neighbours and anyone else that got in my way. We all love our pets and we should know what to say but I dont think we ever do, but I am sorry !!

Went to Battle Abbey today with my daughter, we took our dogs as they were allowed everywhere even in the cafe. Goody I thought Very Happy Across the field from the Abbey there is a metal arrow fired into the earth representing where Harold met his end. Its a large enough arrow, at least 10ft tall and such a simple "monument" really struck home to me. I could see and hear all the shouting, yelling, screaming, horses pounding and neighing, armour and chain mail clanking, the uproar and horror of it all just because on a sunny day in April I saw this tall arrow silently piercing the ground. We could have walked up to it but we had looked and walked a lot and the dogs were getting knackered and the arrow was a fair way off. Tales of Home - Page 23 34512-10

this is a stock photo but this next one is one I took from the walls of the Abbey.

Its there, you just have to keep zooming in Laughing tho I suspect Harold wouldnt have found it funny, "" oh yeah ! I can see it alright ! I got a bloody arrow in me eye !"" Laughing

Dogs don't often tire before humans, unless it was a hot day?

I like the simple monument.

My dog is the black one, my daughter has the brown one. Mine is a collie X corgi and the corgi bit won, he has tiny legs. He does get tired quickly sometimes and isnt as fast as his pal Very Happy and yes, today was very warm indeed Smile we spent 3 hours wandering round this place and I knew my dog wouldnt get to the arrow and back unless we got the car LOL Laughing

That little brown dog is the cutest thing. Almost a cartoon rendition of a dog.

The pandemic caused many of the classic venues in Harlem, all running on a shoestring, to close. So the musicians have been dispersed to little places around the neighborhood, including mine. Here's a trio of musicians, with the trumpet player perhaps past his prime but still full of style, doing what these old jazz masters do: invite the next generation up to perform. The total seating capacity of this place just a few blocks from my place is maybe 25. Welcome to dinner and drinks in Harlem.
