I was right, Jasper's time had indeed come. He died during the night. Thoughtfully, he saved me the cost of the euthanasia, and I called PetsMart to commute the appointment into body disposal.
See? Glittering, right?
I'm guessing this is a sample of the Concord Grey granite I mentioned the other day. And there're many more.
I don't really have any way of knowing for sure but I'm betting these are all made of Concord Grey granite.

Downtown Concord is very attractive. In the space of 5 or 6 blocks of the main street I didn't see one vacancy and I saw only 1 chain store - a CVS. All the others were local stores. Amazing these days.
Just to the left of my photo of the capitol the street was blocked off for a farmer's market, and the place was packed. Unfortunately, something there terrified Gracie. I tried really hard to walk her and Dexter around these buildings and grassy areas but she just kept trying to strangle herself trying to go elsewhere. I finally gave up. I don't know - I heard some little kids shrieking in that way they do when they're having fun, and that often sets her off.
I saw a license plate that said CAFIEND.
The road I took east from Concord was heavily treed - many of them maples. This whole area must be gorgeous in the fall.
My plan is to stay at this next campground for most of a week, making daily forays into the area.
Roscoe's suddenly gotten a lot more affectionate without Jasper here.
