First my Costa Rica trip gets cancelled, now the Boz Scaggs concert. Because of illness, says the email our friends got but which I didn't. If we hadn't been going with them, we wouldn't have found out until we got there after driving 50 miles at night in the rain. And what about all the people who booked rooms at the casino just so they wouldn't have to drive home afterwards? Who cares. They can always gamble or go a little farther to the coast and listen to the waves break in the dark.

So we're meeting the friends at this wine store in our burb instead, where they do tastings every Friday. Then to dinner.

They just lost one of their dogs last week. It was only six but got an aggressive type of cancer. The vet offered chemo as the only treatment but the odds of success weren't good. Instead they took the dog to a holistic vet. He didn't try to save her but provided a bunch of nutritional supplements. The dog remained active and was still perky and eating right up to the last day and didn't suffer. They credit the quality of life to the supplementation. Now DW wants to take our dog to that vet. He's healthy but maybe a change of diet and added supplements will keep him going longer.

So it's dinner with some friends tonight, a play tomorrow night, then brunch with some other friends on Sunday. I'm getting tired just thinking about it.
