Kickass and MLK Bob Shephard

Kickass, the doorstop dog, joins the keeper on this MLK weekend in the traditional salute to the memory of the keeper’s old Army friend Bob Shephard, from the wintery command integration on a Korean hill side to the life-long sharing of a deep and meaningful exchange of cultural and personal things that form the basis of love.

Everyone loved Bob and his remarkable elimination of skin color as a human consideration.

The keeper remembers Bob in a thousand ways, one of them being how Bob and the keeper’s father, who spent his life in the racial isolation of northwest Wisconsin, shared laughter and camaraderie around a deer camp stove like old friends.

MLK Day!

How about a BS day?

Bob would love the slang implication and he would explode in the characteristic laughter that decorates his memory.
