Big Jim and Alvin, still together...
While Big Jim was living he had a pet skunk, Alvin. Big Jim
farmed soy beans, cotton, wheat and rice. When I was a child he would bring home
animals that he found hurt or were hurt by the farm equipment. We would nurse
them back to health and let them go. A few years ago he kept hearing a noise in
his shop where he worked on farm equipment. Upon investigating the noise, he
discovered a baby skunk - the baby's mother wasn't coming back, so Daddy bundled
him up and took him to the house. He had to bottle feed the skunk, he was so
young. Before long, Daddy and Alvin were inseparable. While Daddy would watch
TV, Alvin would sit on his shoulder.
Alvin transitioned a few years before Daddy did. Daddy was devastated. They've
rejoined in the spiritual realm. When Daddy comes by, Alvin comes with him and
plays with my poodle, Majik. They have a LOT of fun together throwing pillows
off the bed and trashing out the covers of the guest bed.
I was so thrilled to discover this picture of the zero orb over the larger orb
in the pictures I took at my mom's house. Clearly, Alvin, still sits on Daddy's
This is a picture of Alvin that reside beside Daddy's picture.
