Bahamas The Steer
memorial #142157558

Just had to do a memorial page for Bahamas. I will do some more work on it later.

Added by GeorgiaCA on Feb 03, 2015 12:02 PM

I just looked back at an old message, it tells of that quake being in 1965. Now - soon to be 50 years ago!

We also just had the 50th anniversary of our "Thousand Year Flood" that took out all the bridges. The boys from Fort Lewis formed a volunteer group that operated a ferry to cross the Klamath River, bringing in supplies, etc.

I just read a book called, Beloved Was Bahamas. It is the true story of a very tame pet steer, who was carried away from Klamath Glen, washed down the Klamath River into the ocean, clinging to debris, and was found 3 days later in Crescent City Harbor, 30 miles away, by a group of fishermen. Bahamas nearly died from pneumonia, no large animal vet available, as the vet was stuck at Smith River. Those fisherman helped him to a nearby shed and worked in 24 hour shifts to save him. The state of California purchased Bahamas from his family and gave him a forever home in a pasture under the Klamath Bridge, where he lived out his life, and died of old age. If you find the book, it is well worth reading. Of course the story has much more to it. :)

Hurry up, Spring!
Hi John, did you feel our recent earthquake? When I think of earthquakes, I remember the worst, and longest shaker, I ever experienced, right there in Tacoma - early 1960's. Newscasters talked of the Space Needle swaying!

RE: Obituary
Ooooh...I think you and my husband would have some meaningful conversations. History repeats, over & over. I fear for the future of my two grandsons. :(

I much rather read about Clarissa Harlowe "Clara" Barton, F*A*G* memorial #63. :)

Hi John!
I so appreciated your visits and notes to my parents. I have enjoyed being able to see the photos of your family. The one of you and Henri is my favorite. What a couple of handsome guys!

Thank You for your note to me about the catnip. I never was one for anything except Fancy Feast but enjoy it. You have a great MOM. Send lots of notes. I like to know what every kitty is doing here on the bridge.

RE: Your Loving Kindness

Oh silly man, nothing. Absolutely nothing. As I said, it was a pleasure to post your loved ones' photos and sponsor them. I'll give you another call soon. I have a very ill cat and lost my Puglena yesterday, so it will be a few days. Huggles, dear one! ❤

RE: En l'aire mon enfants!
Hi, LOL! on comment. Oberursel's were German versions of Gnome Rotaries. Some say they were better than the actual Gnomes. In WW1 the Germans were running out of metal and spare parts to keep the 'Obes going. So they started scrapping parts and engines off of shot down French & German planes. Clergets were wholly British as used in the Sopwith family of fighters. Peace, Blessings.

RE: Quotation

You're most welcome, dear John. Saint-Exupéry is one of my favorites and his 'Wind, Sand and Stars' is chocked full of such beautiful tidbits of wisdom and sage advice. I'm so pleased you recognized that line.

Much love and many huggles, Suse

RE: Easter
I have been to Tacoma twice. I was there in April 1965 during your earthquake. I remember watching the news afterwards and the newscasters telling of the Space Needle in Seattle swaying. Oh my - that was 48 years ago!

Just checking in with you John. You have been quiet lately. Hope you will have a pleasant day. So far, it is a gray outside in Northern California....

Hi John,

First I want to thank you so much for visiting some of my cherished pets' memorials. It's deeply appreciated.

Second, but certainly not last, I just visited your little Henri's memorial. What a loving tribute for your little man! I know you miss him so. I'll be back to visit him soon.
