Time Marches On...

Back in the day before marriage and soul-crushing jobs, when I was living with Wendy,if I left the house after 10 pm on Saturday night, it was dressed in tight Wranglers, and a cowboy hat. The intent was to drink beer and flirt with cowboys 10 years younger then me.

Last night I left the house after 10pm in my pajamas to go watch Twilight with my mom. We had popcorn, and milk duds. No beer, no cowboys. It was a lot of fun, but boy how times have changed.

R.I.P. Kody

Kody Bowman (AKA: Kody Boy & Mr. Kody) passed away at Bluffs Animal Hospital today. He was 15. He had fought a long battle with kidney disease.

Kody loved to play with his catnip toys and was especially fond of his best friend carrot. Carrot was his confident for many years and kept all Kody's secrets.

Kody also loved to chase and catch lizards on the porch. He would often bring the little guys in the house to show us his hunting prowess.

Kody enjoined eating. His favorite food was yogurt, which he would share with his mom in the mornings while she got ready for work. He also loved bomb pop and bull riding nights with mom and Wendy. Oddly enough he liked saltine crackers too.

Kody is survived by his mom, Sonja and Husband, his sisters Kady and Nala and many, many friends and family.

Much thanks to the doctor's and staff at Bluffs Animal Hospital for all their great care of Kody right to the end.
