Greatest group picture in the world! The Clay Joshes and his posse.
Today we had to say goodbye to our sweet boy Wyatt. A year with you was not long enough but I know if I had 10, 50, or 100 years it still wouldn’t have been enough. You were a wonderful and amazing dog and we will miss you everyday. RIP Wyatt 😓 So this is where we part, My Friend,
And you’ll run on, around the bend.
Gone from sight, but not from mind,
new pleasures there you’ll surely find.
I will go on; I’ll find the strength,
Life measures quality, not its length.
One long embrace before you leave,
Share one last look, before I grieve.
There are others, that much is true,
But they be they, and they aren’t you.
And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought,
Will remember well all you’ve taught.
Your place I’ll hold, you will be missed,
The fur I stroked, the nose I kissed.
And as you journey to your final rest,
Take with you this…I loved you best.
Our poor baby Wyatt is very sick. Please keep him in your thoughts. #kidneyfailure #sosad #loveourdogs
The birds were created by mistake. The jabberjays - all male - were initially created to eavesdrop on the rebels in the Dark Days, memorizing entire conversations and repeating them back at the Capitol. Once they were discovered, the rebels fed endless lies to the birds, and sent them back loaded with false information. After the lies were discovered, the Capitol closed the laboratories and the jabberjays were released into the wild, in the hope that they would die off. They did, eventually, but not before they passed on their genetic code to female mockingbirds. This was unforeseen, because no one expected them to have the brains to reproduce. The offspring were called mockingjays. (mockngj)
Robin Williams was the funniest man to ever live. It was truly a blessing to have grown up on and to have been surrounded by his work as a child. In my life Robin Williams was a constant source of happiness, laughter, and joy. I seriously feel like I’ve lost a close family member; I don’t even know what to say… Robin, thanks so much for all the laughter!
The life you lived, and the work you’ve done, will always be remembered. I look forward to the day I can share in the laughter of your films with my own kids. May you rest in peace.
I know Josh won’t ever see this, but I want to say to you, your fans are here for you, no matter from where in the world we are, if we never get the chance to meet you, we will always give you our support during the good times and difficult times.
WE LOVE YOU.

white Americans being against immigration is still and always will be the greatest irony of all time
We are deeply saddened by Robin Williams’ passing and join the world in mourning him.
When the people who help us fight off dementors fall victim to their effects, hope and happiness can seem almost unattainable. We are all so indebted to the entertainers of the world that it seems only logical that the universe should give at least a fraction of their brightness back to them. Instead, they too often face darkness so deep that remembering to turn on the light isn’t always an option.
Robin Williams’ work as a comedian, actor, and philanthropist reached millions. Whether it was as Genie, John Keating, Peter Pan, Theodore Roosevelt, or just as Robin, he brought the world a unique and invaluable happiness. It was he who said that “comedy is acting out optimism.” Though the world knew him for that optimism, behind the scenes he was battling his own dementors.
These moments of shock give us the chance to move forward with open minds and open hearts. For so many, seeking help is an insurmountable task. Having people listen and understand can be the strongest patronus there is.
As we navigate this difficult news, we can work to make the truth stronger by speaking more honestly and listening more openly. We can honor Robin Williams by driving out not just our own dementors, but each others’.
The weapon we have is love.
