A Sad Lane

Hello my friends.  It's me Penny from Emmett Stone Lane.  Except it's a sad Lane now and I don't know how to fix it.  Mom says that Dear Ole Dad is now living with sister Cha Cha and C C and all my other 4 pawed siblings up in Heaven.  I guess that's a good thing, but it doesn't feel good to me.
Dad stopped coming out to sit with me last summer.  I only got to see him when he was going to the car.  He always patted my head but I didn't understand then what was going on.  And then I didn't see him any more at all and everyone was so sad.  And I don't know how to fix any of this.  I'm old and wise but I think this is one of those things I'm just suppose to "understand" :(
Little Sister "Annoying" isn't even as annoying as she use to be.  Mom babies her a lot and some times I get jealous. oooooops  I know, but I do.  She gets to ride in the car with Mom whenever she goes anywhere, I am never invited :(  But Annoying is little and she was use to Dear Ole Dad being in his chair, and now he's not and now she either lays on his old pillow or snuggles by Mom in the evening.  I GUESS I can understand that, even if I don't like it!
Dear Ole Dad's Truck is gone.  I miss it.
Mom's pond and flower bed is all a mess, she didn't want to clean it up last fall.  I'm also kind of skinny, Dr Amy says, but I don't like to eat a lot any more.  I'm getting old and it's been a sad winter.
Dad's chair, radio and cross word puzzle just sit there like they are waiting for him.  I use to sit with him, I don't like to go there any more.  Mom doesn't like to change things.
Nothing seems to bother lil bro.  as long as his dish is full of food.  But Mom gives him his little treats from the can like Dad did and that's all he cares about!  He was not happy when Dad was sick, he doesn't like people in his house!  Mom thinks he's too fat, but she won't do anything about it. That is a very spoiled FELINE!
So I will just keep an eye on Mom and our house and watch down my Lane to see if there is any action.  3 people on this Lane went to Heave last year, so it really is a sad Lane.  But I have a new friend!  He's a little bitty canine but I invite him over and we play and see what we can get in to now and then.  If Mom comes out, I chase him away fast!
So until things start looking up I don't have a lot to say.  We all just miss Dear Ole Dad.  My human sisters and brothers and those noisy little boys and sweet girl come by often, but they are sad too.  In spring we will get happy again, I'll make sure of that!


  1. I'm so very sorry Auntie...I think of you all often and pray for continued strength and courage for each day!

  2. You are never far from my thoughts and prayers. I know it's not what you want, but it's all I know to do! I love you.

  3. Love you my precious sister. l54 days until we leave.

  4. Amazing blog and very interesting stuff you got here! I definitely learned a lot from reading through some of your earlier posts as well and decided to drop a comment on this one!
