Talked to Ray a few days ago. He and Becky were coming down this way yesterday for something unrelated and since they've been hitting haunted houses all over the place, they wanted to know if Jim and I wanted to go to one/some with them.

During the phone call, two things came up. First, that little chihuahua they got and doted on like a baby (from what I can gather, I never saw it)? I'm confused on the details, but apparently it fell out of the truck and smashed on the pavement, Becky lost her balance trying to catch it and wound up landing on top of it, and it died.

Second, Becky supposedly has cancer... some tumors on her stomach or insides or something (Mike might have more detail on this). I asked Ray twice and both times he says that they were tested and came back positive. They want to take them out but with that aneurysm it's a risk, so they're meeting with the surgeon next week to discuss options.

So last night we did meet them at our local Walmart and went to a really lame haunted house with them---wasn't scary, but it was fun so I'm glad we went. :)

It was nice that you got together last night, even if the haunted house was lame. LOL

I'm sorry about the dog. I never met it either, but it sounded like they doted on it. Losing it must have been very upsetting for them, particularly it dying that way, with Becky falling on it. She must feel responsible for killing it. How awful.

And about Becky, what's next? If it's true (and we really do hear so many stories ... ) it's just terrible. I feel bad for her. I hope they can do something for her.

In talking to Ray a couple times over this past week (trying to decide if I should head up or not), I asked about any activity. Over the last week or so, before the dog died thing, he's said he was outside with the dog(s?) of an evening and heard whooping coming WEST of his house, presumably over closer to where the biker area is.

Then, he said this week that the Lozon <low-zohn> family had been up last weekend and in talking to them, they asked if he or any of his family had been back in the west 40 woods they own because one <?> night after dark, someone was back in there carrying on and screaming and sounding like they were beating on something back in there. As for any noises or tracks back at camp, he didn't seem to think there had been any.

I think this is probably the night he told me about when the Northern Lights were really bright... I posted about that call, and it was a couple of weeks ago, but you know how he can't keep track of time LOL.
