February 1, 1989: Twenty years ago today, Sam was born somewhere in Oklahoma.
February 1, 1989 – July 20, 2002
We don’t actually know his real birthdate, but he was about ten weeks old when AJP and I got him in April, so we just made February 1 his birthday. He was a true friend.
I also remember that day because it was the day that I slipped on some ice in my driveway at my house in Longmont, Colorado, and broke my ankle to the point that I needed surgery that afternoon to have the fraction reduced. I still have the screws in my left leg.
