MORNING WITHOUT MICK...

   For years, walking into each new day in every season, with Big Dog by my side, has been my pleasure.

This morning, the dawn appeared for just a moment, and then closed up the sky. And rains began.

I understood; I miss my good dog too.
   





MY BIG DOG, MICK... With each new day in every season, he walked with me.

HE WAS THE DOG WHO LOVED AIRPLANES...


















MICK! HE WAS "THE DOG WHO LOVED AIRPLANES."
He would stop whatever he was doing; no matter what; whenever a plane flew over...
And he'd watch, and he'd watch, and he'd watch; until the plane was far out of sight.
Now he has flown to the Great Rainbow Bridge, to his master. Do you think he is still watching airplanes?

FROM WHEREIN CAME THE GOLDEN TEARS? ...

AHA! HERE are my Golden-Teardrop  Trees! One stands up against the tree-house porch, the other about 20 feet behind. I sat with my coffee on the high open deck this morning as a breeze kicked up, and let the golden leaves fall upon me... THEY TICKLED! (click on each photo for better view of leaves)

TEARS FALLING LIKE STARS...



These gold tear-drop leaves are the first to fall every year. 

They are early this year; they began yesterday, flittering down in the breeze like stars falling down from the heavens...

Maybe it's because we've been short of rain...

Or perhaps it's a message...

Whatever, these tear drops are lovely, and they sing a light tune as they fall.

MICK IS GONE FROM THIS WORLD...


Godspeed and goodbye, my sweet  Big Dog Mick. 
Find your way to the Rainbow Bridge. Your Papa's waiting. You can play with him again; no pain now for either one of you.
You were a watcher of airplanes, a sniffer of flowers, and you loved to watch your mom work. (I think you thought your mom was a movie).
You were joy, you were spirit, you were silly and fun...
I will miss you. I miss you already!
