Goodbye, Sensei. My friend, I miss you and will miss you more now that I know we'll never meet again in the dust. At least not the dust of this world.

May you travel in peace.

Goodbye Sensei - I have missed you on this board and now I am sad that I will not get to meet in the dust. RIP

I am sad. Sensei is no longer with us. He was a kind and generous person. He will be missed.

One of my favorite phrases is "Never wisen a chump, or give a sucker an even break."

This cat saw me coming, and managed to get me to support him through 6 years of diabetes, and a year and a half of chemotherapy. Yesterday was a long day filled with horrible decisions and agonizing moments. After watching this cat fight for years, the needle finally dipped into "Not worth it".

Thanks, Knabo. Thknabo.

What a good looking fellow. You gave more life that he (I assume "he") would have had otherwise and I'm sure it was returned to you in what ever way he could muster. It's hard to loose a buddy. We've said goodbye to four feline friends this year, one of which was our super special shop cat, KC. *sigh*. Tough year for the kitties.

I dunno. I am reluctant to push it. His relationship with the board always seems a little touchy. I may be reading into it.

Very sad to relay the news of the passing of Mark Bava, he was killed in a car accident with his brother Chris and another passenger (news story here). A truly amazing and wonderful guy, Mark's encouragement and support helped me make it to my first burn.

An elderly woman got killed by a car here in Japantown. She was probably J-walking from the retirement home to the Japanese market across the street. Probably a dear, sweet old Japanese grandmother, just looking for a sweet snack.

Had a flashback to losing Toshi. It was a little rough.

I was having a rough time in the spring. I think it was coming up on Scott's 50th birthday. He always said he'd be dead by then...

Fuck you, Scott, why didn't you want to live?
