Hello Nashville Good-Bye

Hello Nashville!

Barely a week ago I had Middle Tennessee in my headlights for the first time since Christmas.  Now I look out my rearview mirror to see the Titans stadium fading into the distance.  It's been a whirlwind visit but I have things to do and places to be so I've pointed Seeker north on I-65 and put the gas pedal down.  The past 10 days were filled with doctor and dentist appointments (all good) and visits with family and friends.  Never enough time to see and do it all.  Gus is not riding shotgun on this trip.  He's staying in Nashville with his other mommy and resting.  I worry if the trip back to Georgia will be his last or if he'll even make the trip.  Gus will be 14 next month and he has been moving a lot slower the last few months.  The vet in Hohenwald confirmed the reason:  most of the cartilage in his spine is gone.  His eyes are very cloudy too.  Hoping that good meds and a good rest at Brenda's will help him feel better, but time is not on his side.  So I'm leaving Nashville with tears in my eyes this time as I try to look up the road ahead of me to new adventures and not what is behind me that I can't fix.  Good-bye Nashville, for now.


  1. Awww, touch call but you are thinking of your furry friend.

  2. Linda, I am so sorry for your fur baby's illness and the old 'age' thing. You are doing what you think is best for him. My heart felt sympathy goes with you down the road. Not too many tears as you will remember he has had some fantastic trips with you. Gus will be spoiled rotten while he is visiting with Brenda.
