    This thread makes me both happy and sad at the same time. Sky has had such a happy life but the comment about it being his last goodbye broke my heart.

    Same here...sometimes I don't want to continue reading it but then, I just want to... Smiley Smiley

    HIs Royal Cuteness is still doing his appointed rounds.  At age 92, he goes to his stick religiously.  The stairs are becoming difficult but he's still doing it.  He's happy and smiling and slowly fading.

    Before I left for New Zealand in June, I dug his grave and built his coffin  to make Maggie's [our fab dog sitter] and Dean's [our fab vet] life easier, just in case he passed on.  And he just passes on PAST it every day, no problemoSmileySmileySmiley

    It's still a little ways off for Sky  to climb the stair steps  to  heavenSmiley

    I love Sky's approach to life, and that he stops just short of the stick just to mess with Watt. wink

    Memories indeed, you can see they've brought out his thoughtful side. Maybe he still has a few capers in mind with them.

    Haha Nick,

    It's Sun and Sky that lead the waySmiley.

    So, Woody kicked Sky's stick forward about 11 inches, but you can't fake Sky out -  he stopped at exactly his regulation stick spot, not an inch moreSmiley.

    Here he is contemplating why his stick is in the wrong placeSmiley

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA Thread Closed

    Maybe he particularly likes the view from the spot, and he's probably thinking, "If I just give it a little push, maybe it'll roll down the hill and everyone will stop playing games with the stick."

    Walkin' on the Wild Side -- His Royal Cuteness created a black swan today  going 20 feet beyond his stick for no apparent reason!!  Market momentum?  Fed easing?  Uncovering the real VIX?  No matter how you analyse it, he injected new historically high volatility into the data set....Smiley

    His stick is way back at the top of the rise in the trail.  Always jivin' us.

    Haha,  In New Zealand most of the swans are black so there neither black nor white swan connotes an unexpected event,  they have to use " not corrupt politician" instead.

    Sky takes a panoramic look at his sky, his ocean and his canyon.  He nailed itkiss  He's just below his sunspot.
