|Here is Irving again in 2009. We had one other home in-between these two photos where he was a happy part of our family also.|
|Irving was part of many fun and silly times in our home. Here he is chuckling|
at our good friend Linda, when we scared her with a plastic bug in her Christmas stocking!
|Sweet Irving flourished in our California home for many years!|
|I think he really enjoyed his transplant to this cute pitcher in 2013!|
|Then in mid 2014 Irving was in for a real adventure!|
|We packed him up and drove him nearly 2,000 miles as we moved from California to Texas! Sharing the back seat with Layla|
made the ride so much fun!
|Irving even got to meet his cousin Basil, when we spent 3 weeks living with my son and his wife before moving into our own home! They seemed to get along wonderfully!|
|At last it was time to move Irving into our own home in Texas! He loved the pretty and spacious kitchen.|
|He also loved to spend time by the swimming pool!|
|But soon after the big move, Irving began to show signs that he missed his California home. His edges turned brown and sad.|
|Today after over 26 years of happiness, Irving appears to be ready to leave us. |
We are so unhappy about this! Maybe we should have left Irving in California!
|Will fake sunshine help Irving pull out of the winter doldrums? I'm not ready to say "Good-bye"|
to Irving since he's been with us for so long.....
