Bahamas The Steer
memorial #142157558

Just had to do a memorial page for Bahamas. I will do some more work on it later.

I just looked back at an old message, it tells of that quake being in 1965. Now - soon to be 50 years ago!

We also just had the 50th anniversary of our "Thousand Year Flood" that took out all the bridges. The boys from Fort Lewis formed a volunteer group that operated a ferry to cross the Klamath River, bringing in supplies, etc.

I just read a book called, Beloved Was Bahamas. It is the true story of a very tame pet steer, who was carried away from Klamath Glen, washed down the Klamath River into the ocean, clinging to debris, and was found 3 days later in Crescent City Harbor, 30 miles away, by a group of fishermen. Bahamas nearly died from pneumonia, no large animal vet available, as the vet was stuck at Smith River. Those fisherman helped him to a nearby shed and worked in 24 hour shifts to save him. The state of California purchased Bahamas from his family and gave him a forever home in a pasture under the Klamath Bridge, where he lived out his life, and died of old age. If you find the book, it is well worth reading. Of course the story has much more to it. :)

Hurry up, Spring!
Hi John, did you feel our recent earthquake? When I think of earthquakes, I remember the worst, and longest shaker, I ever experienced, right there in Tacoma - early 1960's. Newscasters talked of the Space Needle swaying!

Thank You,
Dear John,
Thank you so much for visiting my son, Harley Walls site. I myself have not been on his site for awhile, but I will be on his site, Feb 8, as it is his anniversary day.
May God Bless You

RE: Obituary
Ooooh...I think you and my husband would have some meaningful conversations. History repeats, over & over. I fear for the future of my two grandsons. :(

I much rather read about Clarissa Harlowe "Clara" Barton, F*A*G* memorial #63. :)

Hi John!
I so appreciated your visits and notes to my parents. I have enjoyed being able to see the photos of your family. The one of you and Henri is my favorite. What a couple of handsome guys!

Thank You
Thank You for your note to me about the catnip. I never was one for anything except Fancy Feast but enjoy it. You have a great MOM. Send lots of notes. I like to know what every kitty is doing here on the bridge.

RE: Your Loving Kindness

Oh silly man, nothing. Absolutely nothing. As I said, it was a pleasure to post your loved ones' photos and sponsor them. I'll give you another call soon. I have a very ill cat and lost my Puglena yesterday, so it will be a few days. Huggles, dear one! ❤
