Yesterday, my girl refused to turn open her laptop to let me blog...I would do it myself, but I don't have thumbs. She was in a strange melancholy mood all day. She kept muttering to herself, in a very strange way, "In exactly 2 years and 3 months from today, I will be Forty!"

Her friend and one of my favorite humans, Jim, would respond, "But Forty is the new Twenty!" This didn't seem to comfort my girl.

Now I don't know what it means to be "Forty" but it must be pretty bad to get my girl this upset. Gosh, I hope it never happens to me. What happens to you when you get forty-ed? More importantly, what I really want to know is when my girl does get forty-ed, how will that affect me? Will my comfort be disrupted in any way? Will still get my delicious food and walkies in the forest?

Someone please fill me in on what this "Forty" is and what happens when it happens to your human.

In paws.

Eh, I've got three years to fifty and I feel good. The biggest challenge of the forties in my experience and the experience of many of my friends isn't what happens to you, it's what happens to your parents.

Hi Annebelle...
Oh, this sounds serious. And actually I think I might have that problem too with my Mom. I need to do some research and I'll get back to you on it.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

PS - Thanks for visiting my blog. I've added you as a friend too!

Our mom passed forty a few years ago and we still think she is pretty cool. She just forgets things more often now (like forgetting to put our Invisible Fence collars on so we can visit the burr bush on the other side of our yard.)

I'll play her a happy young song on the piano..maybe you could sing

Hi, Annabelle! We saw your entry on the Bone Zone and wanted to come visit you. You have such lovely pictures. Your mom should survive the 40s. Our mom is suffering from the 50s. In some ways it is pretty nice. She sits on the sofa and we can sit with her. Maybe your mom will do that and you will get more pets and hugs.
