I don't blame the Universe, really. I was sitting at my computer a day ago. I typed, "great job ... almost no bills ... no unmanageable health problems ... good friends ... Paris ... birthday."
I should have known there would be a backlash, and not just Steve's blog.
Monday we got the results of Mac the dog's yearly physical, and he's in renal failure. He's going to die, it's just a question of when. We'll know more about the "when" Friday, after he goes through 3 days of renal flushing at the vet.
Oh! Is it August 10th? It's my birthday.
