<p><b><p></b> <b>Guy on tinder:</b> so what you up to tonight?<p/><b>The truth:</b> going to eat an entire artichoke and watch a film about Paddington Bear<p/><b>What I say:</b> not much haha, might see some friends<p/></p><p/></p>
Aunt Lucy: Long ago, people in England sent their children by train with labels around their necks, so they could be taken care of by complete strangers in the country side where it was safe. They will not have forgotten how to treat strangers.
An otherwise normal day in East Glacier; this family of bears decides to pass, making this an especially awesome day. We love how the babies look like they’re wearing their dad’s shoes as they lumber forward…adorable.
Some time during Hedwig tonight, on the other side of the planet, my darling dog Paddington was euthanised. He was almost 19 and he’d been with me for most of my life. He was given to me by a favorite aunt and together we trained him and taught him all the best games. But he was also, certainly, the family dog to my parents and sisters. And he was the best. Laid-back but playful and healthy all the way up until the end. Other than that time he fell out of the tree and got the very in-vogue complete knee reconstruction. He slowed down but never stopped eating or bossing his multiple baby brothers and sisters around. He is unquestionably the thing I have missed most about moving to New York. And now he won’t be there when I get home.
So I will just keep missing him and wishing he was here to be my unwaveringly loyal friend, to curl up with at night, and to always make me feel like I’m at home.
