Great weekend.  I feel like I'm sliding in sideways to Sunday afternoon, getting ready for the coming week.  We did lots of work on the state tournament coming up, and we went to Jena today to meet with Belle's family.

The one downer to the weekend, and it's a huge one, is that our little dog, Beau, is missing.  We had a lot of movement in and around the house yesterday, and when everything settled down in the late afternoon, we couldn't find him.  He's an old dog, going blind, and normally stays close.  But, we're unable to locate him, and at this point, we fear the worst.  He's been with us for ten years, and he's a family member.

I'll talk more about it later, but right now I'm not able to.  We're still wondering where he is, and we're devastated.  Beau is gone, and we're left without a clue.  Belle cried herself to sleep last night.

Gene Hill once said, "In the whole universe, there is no place so dark, so empty, so void, as that place where the dog used to sleep, when he's sleeping someplace else, forever."

I'll let y'all  know something when we know something.

Best of luck on the critter coming home. When I bought this house, my best-loved cat disappeared. She did show up 4 days later, when I'd about given up.
Y'all will be in my prayers tonight.

If good thoughts count you have ours. We lost our oldest dog this weekend and know the worry and anguish you are feeling.
Hopefully your friend will appear and wonder what all the fuss is about.
