Camera Critters #4

This week I thought I would share a close-up of our budgie Sam with you. Sam is getting on in years, and while he has only made attempts at actually saying hello he is very tame, and likes people. :D

Sam did have a gender confused brother named Stella, and a partner named Sunny, but both have since passed on.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a great week ahead! If you are stopping in for BYB Sunday that will be online a little later.

Nostalgic Saturday - My Dad

Alec A. Demeter Aug. 5th 1922 - July 6th 1999

Tomorrow is Father's Day here in North America, and while my father passed away almost 10 years ago I will of course be thinking of him. I wrote the following shortly after his death in 1999.


There is not a day that goes by that I am not thinking about you. Although I am slowly learning to live life without you, I miss you so much, and there is a part of my heart that is missing forever. I miss our shared love for your grandchildren, our early morning talks, our enthusiasm for science, especially space exploration. I miss the old days , your pancake breakfasts, hiking in the woods, fishing at the lake, tobogganing in the snow, your kiss good night. You taught me so much Dad.

I am so thankful we had that final day to say all the things that we needed to say to each other.

And thank you Dad for the dream up at the cabin. I know you are ok. You are our guardian angel now and I feel your presence often. When I take out the telescope and view the stars, I remember our planet, and know we will meet again.

Love Sue

While the pain does go away, and sadness is replaced by happy memories of times gone by I have learned one thing through this loss...that no matter how much time goes by the missing never goes away.

Wishing all the Dads out there, and those who love them a very Happy Father's Day tomorrow! :D

Thanks to Abbey for putting together this fun meme. Why not join in?! :D
