Orchestre Lisa Bobo & Benson Lawrence,
Sonafric 50090, 1977

It has been six days, quite a hiatus on my part. I am
going through a difficult time, sick staffmembers, work,
work, work and worst of all, last monday I had to take
my very best friend and partner to the doctor to send
him over to the eternal huntinggrounds. Sjakie was
13 years and 4 months old. Happy hunting Sjakie.
It is so strange after such a long time, coming
home in an empty house. No need to go out
in the mornings, afternoons and evenings.
I miss him very very much ! ...sigh...

About the lp I am posting for you today,
I tried to find some info on the artists but
didn't find anything useful. Just play it and
tell me what you think. If you are the one to
give us the desired info, please don't deny.

Hi Moos, I am very sorry to hear that your dog passed on. I have lost a few good dogs and it's never easy.

Thank you again for everything.

Sterkte Moos,
en dat de muziek je verstrooiing en vertroosting bieden mag. En Sjakie een blijde herinnering blijft.
Liefde overwint!

Dear Moos, I share your grief. Sjakie is in a better place now. Global Groovers know Sjakie from his birthday celebrations two years back and from the blog's earlier profile picture. Apurva from Pune, India.

My heartfelt condolences, Moos. I'm sure Sjakie could hear musical vibrations that we humans are incapable of picking up. Thanks for the music.

Let me also say sorry about the loss of your buddy. It's never easy. He looks like a nobleman.

Oh dear, that's so sad Moos. I don't have a dog, but I know a lot of dog owners and I have seen how it feels when a dog dies.
Please accept my condolences Moos.

Very sorry to hear about the loss of your best friend. I know how wonderful the companionship of a good dog can be -- as I sit here and type, my own best friend is at my feet.

Anyway, hang in there, and focus on all of the great times you had together. And thanks again for sharing this magical music. I hope that it is helping you get through this tough time.

Dear Moos,

I'm very sorry to hear about your dog's death. I have two dogs myself, and I'm sure I would also feel very sad if they died. Thank you for all the music you've posted.

I'm really sorry to hear about Sjakie - I hope you soon feel better Moos. It's always very sad to lose a pet, they really can be such special friends.

Moos -
I posted a comment indicating that this post delivered the wrong file. My mistake! I was on the wrong comment page, and there is no problem.

Hope you didn't waste any time on my boo-boo.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I'm sure Sjakie appreciates the lifestyle you provided and the great music over the years! One very lucky dog!

By the way, I have not missed a single one of your Congolese postings and I appreciate all your hard work over the years!
