The Noble Virtue of honor is the ability to hold your head high in all situations. It’s the adherence to what is right or to a conventional standard of conduct. To live an honorable life is the most valuable of goals. We set standards for ourselves and live according to those standards. We are not encouraged to set low standards; rather, set high standards and work toward them continually, even behind closed doors. (C. Reimer/V. Elmersson)
Now is the song of the High One recited in the High One’s hall.
Very useful to the sons of men,
Quite useless to the sons of giants,
Luck to him who recites, luck to him who knows!
May he benefit, he who learnt it,
Luck to those who listened (Larrington pg. 38)!

Sexperimentation fun and shock value

Toby let out a diarrhea squirt and didn’t move from the floor. I cleaned it and him.
Took Toby outside north on the block; very lethargic
When Toby came inside I put a bit of food in his plate. HE ACTUALLY ATE A BIT! Now, I don’t know how much he has to eat, but I went ahead to give him some insulin.
*YES! HE ATE A BIT MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!

At the recommendation of jwlr, I took Toby to the Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Hospital of Wichita. Both MY vet and back-up vet says to call them in case of emergency. I stayed there in the parking lot until 1:30am. They said it would be several hours before they can do anything because they were über busy and that I should go home. They will call me with any updated information.
Last check on all fur-kids.
2am nighty night.
Donar, Son of Wodan and Erda, husband to Sibba with the Golden Hair, wielder of Malant and Great God of thunder, thunder forth in our lives. When we would hold back, encourage us to advance. When we would be weak, hearten us be strong. When we would shun life’s pleasures, inspire our appetites for that which is lusty and good. Excite our growth from strength to strength; teach us, elder brother, how to throw our own Hammer, and slay the giants who oppose our will. WE GIVE YOU A MOST HEART-FELT HEIL, DONAR, as we honor the Donar that resides in us all!
