I haven’t posted in a while; it’s been a tough time.  In January, we lost our Gus.  I think I’m still in shock.  Between five vets and three animal hospitals, we’re still not sure what happened.  He developed an exceptionally rare autoimmune reaction to something – maybe his vaccinations – and he just slipped away.

Greetings from Washington, DC!

I had two trips to Washington in January and February.  The first one was the day after ‘snowpocalype,’ so I was stuck at the hotel most of the time.  The weather was much improved for my second trip in February.
