A Month of Love #18

Paula Light says, “Let’s celebrate the month of lurve (aka love) by posting one thing we love every day throughout February.

Now the truth is that I’m not really a romantic guy, so I might be hard pressed to come up with 28 objects of love, but I think I should be able to come up with 28 things I like a lot.

Today is a double love post. First, there’s Ocean Beach, which was just three miles from where we used to live in San Francisco. We would often ride our bikes there from our house, or drive if we were feeling lazy. Or, if we were feeling really energetic and ambitious, we would occasionally walk there.Second, our dog, who we lost this past fall. We loved her dearly and she loved for us to take her to Ocean Beach, where we would toss her ball into the surf and she would jump in, retrieve it, bring it back to us, and drop it at our feet — again and again until either she or we were exhausted.

I loved living so close to the ocean and I loved our dog. We can still take an occasional drive to Ocean Beach, but not with our dog anymore. 😢

    So sad. Are you planning to get a new pet ?

      We still have a cat, but are considering getting another dog.

    Losing a furry family member is among the hardest things in life … I know, for we have lost many over the years. But, I revert to that old saying, ” ‘Tis better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all.” Such wonderful memories you have. I lived in the Bay Area off and on until 1968, and have only been back once in the early 1970s.
