You've just purchased a great Bryston system without speakers and your wife buys you a pair of Bose for Christmas.

 :lol:

Either she has a good sense of humor or you need to educate the good lady. Sounds like something my girl would do........as a joke.

On the subject of money, I was listening to a program yesterday and the host was speculating that the Dow will drop to the 3K mark within the next couple of years.

My bad day was yesterday.  My old english pointer came up to the house and had been shot.  I had to put him down.  :(

Thanks Thunderbrick.  It wasn't easy.  I had trained him from an 8 week old pup and we spent many an afternoon in the field. However, he was an old dog, had a few tumors, so maybe it was the best thing.  That's what I will choose to believe.

I am so sorry for your loss S Clark.

I had to euthanize my black labrador retriever Apollo in 2002, he was almost 13 and had a tumour rupture in his chest. I was sitting in the vets office when he walked into the room with the x-rays and said that it was very, very bad. I can tell you that I died a little bit inside that day. Apollo in his old age did not like the vets office and I asked my vet if he could come over and euthanize him at home.

A word that I very seldom use is "hate." I can tell you that I hated signing the paperwork required for the veterinarian to euthanize my wife's and I best friend.

We had a very quiet afternoon with Apollo at home, I was lying beside him gently patting and telling him how he was such a good boy - he was a kind soul. The vet arrived and asked if we were ready. I remember telling Apollo "I love you" as the vet gave him the injection and I watched the life drain from his eyes - our best friend passed quietly away. It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life, but Apollo needed me to be there for him.

I believe that when anyone experiences a loss, you never really get over it, but learn to live with it and perhaps we become a little "numb" inside. I still shed a tear for Apollo from time to time and he has being gone for almost 10 years now.
