So many of you have written comments, sent cards and e-mails, brought food and been extremely kind and supportive of Pretty and the Old Woman Slow and Squirrel Chaser Spike in the days following our losses of The Red Man and Tennis Ball Obsessed Chelsea.

We want you all to know how much we sincerely appreciate the sympathy and kindnesses you have shown. Really, there are no words to describe our gratitude but we will say a genuine thank you from our hearts to yours.

Teresa and Spike and I find Casa de Canterbury empty and lonely without Red and Chelsea, and the days longer than Daylight Savings Time. We took a family vacation for the past 10 days in a trip to the mid-west. We had a wonderful time together and a needed break from the haunted rooms at home.

I have missed The Red Man’s commentaries on life as he knew it and have wondered if they could be resurrected somehow. As of today, I haven’t figured out how to do that, but I opted to keep the domain active and the earlier posts available for any who choose to read them again.

I also will keep writing my I’ll Call It blog at and The Old Woman’s Slow’s Photos at so I hope to see you there.

Thank you again for your friendship and loyalty to all of us at Casa de Canterbury.
