What a spooky world. The last couple of days I've happened on notices of birthdays for three buddies. All cyber pals. Two dearest ladies have gone on to better climes. I miss them deeply. Another I met on Bubble. We got to be pretty good at chatting back and forth. He lives or lived just down the line from me physically. He ended up with a nasty cancer. He loved Tillamook cheddar. He was a Vet. I wrangled his address out of him and one Christmas sent him a block of Tillamook cause he sounded so sad, writing about waiting for the third of the month so that his little check would come in and he could get a little chunk of that cheese. He hasn't contacted me in over a year. I worry that there is a sad reason why. Anyway, happy birthday sir and thank you for your service. I wish you well.

@infatuatedbby @infatuatedbby I think it was a raspberry yogurt that was so tasty.

I am sure you are very worried about your friend who may not be well at all. I hope you do learn if he is OK.

@Corbin5 His situation made me so mad and made me feel so helpless. He drove himself over the mountains to the big city for cancer treatments. And him a Vet. Disgusting.

We become dear friends with people we meet online sometimes... And we do get worried when we do not hear from them for some time... I hope he has a happy birthday where ever he is...

Tillamook does make some amazing cheese, not the point of this I know, but we used to eat that cheese when we lived in Oregon. can finally get it down here.

@Jessicalynnt Allergies are hammering me right now. I have enough throat stuff. Cheese seems to be adding to the issue so for now none of that for me.
