I have a watercolor painting of a deceased pet and I really love it. I think a paining is a wonderful idea.

I think the painting would be a sweet idea, and potentially adopting or buying another cat when the time is right

That’s very sweet.
There are kitty memorials you can find on amazon.
I’ve seen stained glass, stepping stones, you can have a stuffed animal commissioned, etc.

Good luck to her. Horrible to lose a pet.

My friend and her husband did a photo shoot with their dog that was dying of cancer, it turned out really cute. You could have the ashes turned into a diamond or something. There’s also some sort of crystal where there’s a picture of them in it that you could do.

My niece lost her dog and was heartbroken. I had a picture of him transferred onto fabric and made a pillow. She loves it and it’s somewhat easier to work with in her decor than a wall hanging. She sleeps with it when she’s sad. Here is the unfinished fabric.

How long after you ETS’d did you go to work?

Thinking of taking of 6-12 months before going into the work force.

For context: getting out at 12 years, been special operations for 10 of those years, 7 deployments; 3young kids who I’ve missed a lot of their lives already; have more than enough savings to sustain a 12 month break in between ETS & new job; would be finishing a masters in that time off as well.

I feel like I prefer American/Int’l men over Canadian men. Mostly because everyone seems to know everyone here. Even in the big cities, it’s a small pond. But being in Canada, that makes for a long distance relationship by default…which most people aren’t into. Welp

I think Bob Lazar is telling the truth and the US government has been in possession of “other worldly” crafts for some time now…The documents that are being released and first hand accounts of military pilots/personnel seem to corroborate some of the things he described in his story. It’s statistically ridiculous to think we’re alone out here in the universe and imo it makes more sense to accept the evidence that we may be encountering extraterrestrial technology. Fermi paradox solved.
