    Yesterday afternoon, my dog was barking uncontrollably. He wouldn’t respond, so I went out and he was face-to-face with a bear who was about 15 ft from our wire fence. I shouted at it and it just stared at me. I clapped and jumped and it took off. There was a nervous few seconds.

    My very good friend’s wife died in the night.

    In the morning, I learned that a young man, a former student, and his mother died of Covid-19 the day before.

    I ended up in urgent care with an eye issue today. I went to my local pharmacy to pick up a prescription, then took a walk where I got attacked by two large dogs. I was bitten, but it did’t go through my sweatshirt.

    I’m sitting in my easy chair and having a drink that was one of my friend’s wife’s favorites and I’m not leaving!

    I'm sorry Booker, that's a lot to deal with, especially in one day.

    Sorry about the bad run. Any one of those would throw anybody's day off. Stay in the chair and have another. Repeat as needed.

    Sorry about the loss of your friends @booker. Hope the eye gets better soon. It’s gotta be a brutal day when a dog attack and a bear encounter aren’t the worst things that you had to deal with. Hang in there partner……

    Six years ago today, Cheri and I were drinking beer, eating brats, and kicking up our heels to an Oom-pah band.

    Bad day for sure. As the old song says, "Some days you're the windshield, some days you're the bug."

    Sounds like such a rough day! Definitely out of the ordinary! But hang in there, because better days are on their way. :)

    (Maybe just don't leave the chair. Ever. Really.)

    Wow. So sorry for your loss and all the other mishaps in 24 hours. Better days ahead. I hope you are still on the road to recovery from your tennis mishap a few months ago.

    Sorry for your loss.

    My polyanna friend would say things can only get better. My wife would say the glass is half full---of POISON! lol
