Dear, sweet Jake ...



It's poignant to note that "bridge" is this week's Photo Hunt theme as my dear, sweet Jake has gone to the Bridge. I join his fambly in mourning his passing.

Jake has been my Valentine for the past two years an' I looked forward to celebrating with him next weekend with plenty of smooches. Unfortunately, that simply wasn't in the stars for us. I'll miss him terribly. Please visit Bathsheba (an' Nancy) to express your condolences. The blogosphere is sadder for Jake's passing, but we are better for having known him.

The bridge in the photo is Multnomah Falls in Oregon. I feel as cloudy and leaky as the waterfall and sky in the picture.
