Had accupuncture today for chronic sore shoulder and now feel incredibly nauseated, dizzy, almost flu-like symptoms. Will rest up and see if tomorrow is better.

Bucky,

I am sorry to hear about Hercules.

How is the Chief handling it?

It may be a consolation, for him, that it happened now instead of closer to Christmas.

It is never easy to lose a faithful friend and family member.

The Chief is lucky to have you on his team.

Sorry to hear about your cat BT. Congrats to your boy though.

I'm currently giving my wrist a break and watching the roomies shoot each other in MW3.
