Six years ago

Six year ago tonight, hubby and I went to see The Guess Who and Joe Cocker at the then Corel Centre. When we got home, there were messages on my answering system. My Dad had fought multiple sclerosis for almost forty years, and had finally succumbed to pneumonia and passed away at the age of 72. As the MS had started to attack his brain, his passing was a blessing.

So, this marks the anniversary of the milestone from a very bad year. A week later, our favourite pet bird died. Another week after that and two planes flew into the World Trade Center towers. A couple of months later, I was laid off when the ramifications of the tech bubble bursting hit the company for which I worked. 2001 was not a banner year for me.
