Re: murry is dying

I want to thank everyone who posted here giving me support, space to grieve, their own stories, to learn ever so little about Murry's personality. I was extremely touched that anyone would emerge from lurkerdom for the purpose of adding comfort to this thread. I have cried a lot, and cried a lot put...

Re: murry is dying

Today I am cleaning. All the toys, must never loved, the pillows, the blankets, the beds, hunting down the fur bunnies; everything must go. Except for his doll, I am keeping that. The pet stroller is being donated, the unused meds too, the food goes to a friend's dog. With so much space cleared out ...

Re: murry is dying

idontlikesnow.jpg Minous, I wish I could really give you an sense of h is personality. For the most part he hated dogs; at least all dogs that were bigger than him, and some that were smaller and annoying. He especially did not like Bernese Mountain Dogs. Oddly he was friendly with pugs, but never ...

Thank you all so much for your generous thoughts and kind words. I would not have made it through the decision, and the act, without them. The act and the aftermath are just terrible.

Re: murry is dying

It is a gut wrenching and soul freezing thing to end the life of someone who has been a loyal and noble friend. It is time for me to take away Murry's pain and to spare him the pains that would have followed. I talked about it all night with him, and he summoned the strength to come over and put his...

Re: murry is dying

This morning when I picked him up to take him down from bed he felt so small. He almost slipped through my arms.

I was looking for a few particular pictures, but haven't found them yet. In the mean time here are a few good ones I did find.

Re: Can anyone help me identify this ring?!

It is very pretty. It would help if you could get some shots with the white balance more balanced. Also views of the ring from the side and head on in addition to the top down you've done. It also might be useful to have a shot of the inside back of the stone. All with the white balance set well. Wh...

Re: Does Metal Matter for Stone Type?

Slightly exaggerated here, but just for example I would not try to set a sphene in a platinum bezel. The forces required to push the metal over the stone would be far too much for the stone to bear. Even in prongs I would only trust someone who was the Yoda of settings.

It is a well known company, even I have heard of them, and they are growing while Kay always has to fight for its market position. also the pay is better, the hours are better, who needs a fancy sounding ologist title and the trump card, daughter in kindergarden.
