Our good friend Tigger developed congestive heart failure and died this past week. He will be missed by everyone. He was always there to greet the guests and make sure they had the opportunity to enjoy his "fur therapy." Rest in peace old friend.
Tigger can't figure out where everyone is. He says to tell you that it's only 70 miles to Washington, D.C. and that you can come visit, spend a couple days seeing the wineries and hiking Skyline Drive and go home with gasoline to spare. The price of gas is lots cheaper out here. When our kids come visit from Northern Virginia and Maryland, they make sure their gas tanks are empty when they get here so they can fill up with our cheap gas.
