With the advances of digital photography comes the curse of date stamps on photos. This curse reared its ugly head during a recent trip down memory lane.
We can’t remember how old Hector was at the time he moved in, but he was at least 2. For some reason I think he was estimated to be 3. Now let’s do the math: 2015-2006 = 9. 9+2 = 11. Hector is at least 11 years old. If my recollection is correct, however, he’s 12.
DASH! never shared his age when he first graced us with his presence, but he was an adult. My recollection is the vet estimated him to be the generic ‘between 1 and 3’. Let’s do the math again: 2015-2008=7. 7+1 =8. DASH! is at least 8, but he could be as old as 11.
When the harsh reality hit, I lamented to Crabby that I thought The Boys were around 5 or 6 years old. According to Crabby I’ve been saying that for years.
Somewhere along the way, as misfits moved in and others passed away, Hector and DASH! not only got older, but became seniors.
I choose not to see seniors. I choose to see My Boys as they truly are:
I have decided to stick to my claim that Hector and DASH! are around 5 and 6 years old, for now and for the foreseeable future.
