We had to say good bye to our “first born” on monday. Â We were lucky. Â He was only sick for a few days and never really suffered; but it was not easy to let him go.
tuffi wasn’t just special. Â He was famous.
He was happiest running on the beach in Little Cayman. Â So we made a spot for him beside the path on our lot in Bloody Bay. Â He will be warm and happy there.
Then we sat in the dark Â and watched the stars. Â There are no street lights now so the night sky is amazing. Â Suddenly (the first time I’ve ever seen one in my 28 years here) a lightning bug appeared and flew right past our faces and down the path… then came back and flew only inches from our noses for the second time. Â It reminded me how tuffi used to run up and down the path smiling at us. Â The only lightning bug we saw that night and the only one I’ve seen in the Cayman Islands. Â Ever! Â What do you think?
