    Rumor has it that we may well have a special attendee from beyond the pale - an original, never to be duplicated Olde Phart handsome, young videographer.

    Will try again (sigh)…,

    maybe things will have straightened out a bit by then. Haven't yet…, but just maybe.

    Received word that he wanted to stop by, but likely wouldn't stay for the duration. Itchy feet syndrome me thinks.

    Also hear that his money will be no good - an indication of how the staff appreciates him.

    Me thinks it's not just the staff that appreciate him. Wish I could be there, but I have a date with a 30 year old Babe in NOVA!

    I am even willing to be around Yankees to see my daughter! Please pass on my well wishes.

    I suggested to Grapeshot that an arch of crossed coffee cups be formed for him to walk in under.

    Grapeshot came back with some lame joke associated with Easter-time baked goods.

    I'd hate to think that we wait till after he's gone to honor him.

    And yes, even if he just stops by to prove he's not dead yet it will be great to see him not hooked up to wires and hoses.

    stay safe.

    Don't know who the mystery guest is but I have been forbidden by my Doctor from going to the farm for at least two weeks. Wild horses couldn't stop me fro coming to breakfast. The Keeper has to drive me and may not be there too long....but we'll see.

    'Tis no secret who the guest is - hope you are up to making an appearance

    Keep in mind that there are a lot of Saturdays left.

    I should be able to make it. I'll be bringing a trucking buddy with me who I'm sure would have a question or two.

    There's also a chance we won't make it though for I may have to take him back to his truck.

    Hope to see ya in the AM.

    He walked. He talked. He looked pretty darned good for someone who has spend a bit of time hanging around the boat landing at the River Styx.

    Now if he would just agree to do at least some of the things that his Keeper tells him to do. Or not to do.

    stay safe.

    Was extremely good to see Peter upright and naturally grumpy

    Appears that the Devil and his minions will have to wait longer to tilt with that windmill.

    +1000, Skid. The handsome young photographer and his beautiful "Keeper" were looking good this morning considering all they have been through lately, and I really appreciate their effort to join us despite obvious discomfort and reduced energy levels. After hearing about the "event", and the extraordinary series of circumstances that combined to turn the tide in Peter's favor, I continue to believe that there are true heaven sent blessings, and that there is no such thing as "luck" or "coincidence". Peter and "Keeper" get my "Relentless" award.

They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 In those days when you pray, I will listen. 13 You will find me when you look for me, if you look for me in earnest.

    we are not equal, we will never be equal, but we must be relentless.
