Imelda and Mykee: My Memorial Day Pups

Some friends and I are spending the afternoon of this Memorial Day watching an opera on DVD, a performance of Leos Janacek’s FROM THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD.  Afterwards, we will go to the backyard to spend a few moments with my two faithful and valiant pups, IMELDA (20 May 1987–13 October 1997) and MYKEE (7 June 1997–9 March 2012).  Hardly a day goes by when I do not think about how they both enriched my life, and today we will drink a toast to their memory.

    Very dear Paul,

    I think of you often, and hope that this ceremony will help you put some closure to your feelings, especially since you have so much to look forward to with your new puppy in the future. She is so sociable that we all love her already. Your incredible hospitality is without parangon and not being there makes me miss you all a lot! Wish you all the best on these next weeks. Please give everyone my love.

    We have had some fun days in Trieste with Geraldo organizing most of our stay, which made if very comfortable for me–I did not have to worry about anything. He has taken a lot of responsibility for this section of the trip and has done a very good job to get us going in the right direction. I appreciate what he has done very much. We are off to Pula tomorrow;he has to solve immediate problems we are facing in good humor and quite efficiently.

    I am feeling o.k. so far, and hope to do the remainder of the trip if everything goes well.
    All my best wishes for you and Grant, as always, with much love, anita
