      Dear Grandpa; I'd thought I'd finished shedding tears. I was wrong. Thank you, as always, for your thoughtful comments. They meant a great deal to me. Wishing you and yours well, Elizabeth

        What a sweet thing to say. Thank you, Elizabeth.

        This is a tough time, of course, and all the tougher for those closest to the tragedy. Advice: For them: Offer support, and if it doesn't seem welcome, that's okay. This is a hard road that they - and you - are trying to walk, and they don't always care about the ones cheering them on. Forgive everything for six months.

        All the best.

        That's too funny!

        But I don't mind the planet. Not even the people on it. I just reserve the ability to comment on the willful mendacity and ignorance now and then.

        Besides, by the time they will have realized space travel, I'll be too old to qualify.

      Hi Grandpa- my daughter works in vet field and said def. some blk lab. Most of my dogs have been lab or lab mix-- plus the one doxie ( Spideyman/Gismo) and Mack the Akita who thought he was a cat!! Labs have gentle souls and loyal to the bone. Lovers of cold and water.

        The same to you! And actually, Grandma and I are flying out tomorrow, so our "weekend" sorta starts then. Love Neil deGrasse Tyson. I mean, not romantically. I posted a "Neil deGrasse Tyson for President" on my blog. It was lighthearted, but I meant it.
