Yes, Bodie, Whiskerino is really over.
And yes, the cats are going away, too.
Okay, you can go get your ball!
No one would accuse me of being an overly emotional or sentimental guy, but when I started reading these final farewells, I got a little choked up. So no remote location for the beauty shot or attempt at a complicated setup, just Bodie and me here to say goodbye.
This has been an amazing experience! I thank each and every one of you for the brilliant photos and the funny and supportive comments. But most of all, I thank you for helping to create and maintain this community over the past 4 months. I feel privileged to have been able to share in your joys and heartaches during this time. I wish you all the best as you are truly wonderful people.
A special thanks to @Mackle
and his crew for creating this event and keeping it running. You really have made something special in this event and you deserve praise and admiration for that. I never dreamed that flying half way across the country to meet a bunch of people I only knew online could be so much fun or so rewarding. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks. Thanks for letting me be a part of this whole experience. If ever you decide to resurrect this event, I hope I can be part of it.
So, it’s back to normal life now, a life that has been creatively reinvigorated through this event. I hope to cross paths with some of you again and hope to see some of you in May. If you are ever in Northern California, drop me a line (see the sidebar), I’d love to buy you a beer (or a glass of fine Sonoma wine).
Okay, Bodie, let’s go play!
