Thadd+Friends is moving to T+G.

With Milan’s very unexpected and sudden passing, I didn’t feel it was right to continue blog about all of our daily adventures on Thadd+Friends at thaddandmilan.com without Milan. I’ve actually been thinking about changing the web address of our blog for a while now, especially with Genifer and I getting married at the end of February. This just feels like the perfect time to move our blog to a new home. The story of Thadd and Milan has sadly come to an end. But a whole new chapter of Thadd+Genifer is just about to get started. We definitely plan on keeping Thadd+Friends around forever and will refer back to it often as a very loving tribute to all of the adventures we’ve already had, especially those with my best friend, our beloved bud dog

We miss you so much, Milan. We’ll always cherish the time we got to spend with you. 🙂

This guy has been in my heart and thoughts non-stop. #MissYouSoMuch #missyousomuchithurts
We miss you so very much. :’)

Angel’s Paws.

On Tuesday, we had the amazing people of Angel’s Paws gather Milan to have him cremated. This evening we went to pick up his remains to bring him back home…

We sure do miss Milan. But at least he’s coming home with us again. Angel’s Paws did such an amazing job helping us with the grieving process. They were so compassionate, understanding and caring. You can tell their hearts are in the right place. They treated Milan with such dignity and respect. Thank you Angel’s Paws for helping us get our bud dog back home and for all the keepsakes to help us cherish our memories of Milan. 🙂

We all miss Milan so much.

We all miss Milan so much, and wish he was still here with us…

Last night, I lost my best friend.

Last night, I lost my best friend. Milan was fine all evening. At 12.45am, we were awoken by him stumbling around and having difficulty walking. We laid him of our sofa to make hime more comfortable, console him and try to figure out what was wrong. At 1.45am, he took his last breath and passed away. It was very sudden and completely unexpected. I don’t know that we’ll very understand just what happened tonight. What I do know is that Milan will be missed terribly. I’ll always remember all the wonderful times we had. How you helped me through so many difficult times. And were always right there by my side. I love you. I’m thankful I got the opportunity to spend the time we had together, even if it was cut very short. I’ll always remember all the companionship you provided, all the happiness you supplied, all the incredible adventures we had together, all the fun, all the unwavering love. And I hope you felt it too. Thank you for being my best friend for nine years. Thank you.

Four lads from Liverpool.

The Mersey Beatles are no ordinary cover band. The acclaimed group is the world’s only all-Liverpool-born Beatles tribute band, and from 2002 to 2012 they were the resident tribute band at The Cavern Club, the famous nightclub in Liverpool, where The Beatles perfected their act before launching a global rock ‘n roll revolution in the 1960s. They also are the official Beatles tribute band representing the City of Liverpool and have sold out shows worldwide.

Since 1999, The Mersey Beatles have played sell-out shows in more than 20 countries, recreating The Beatles’ most popular hits. Their show spans the Fab Four’s catalogue and recreates The Beatles’ sound and image with amazing accuracy. And tonight, they played the Aronoff Center in downtown Cincinnati…

This show’s special guest was John Lennon’s sister, Julia Baird, who said, “There are a lot of Beatles tribute bands from all over the world and I have seen them all, but The Mersey Beatles are the best I’ve heard.”

Amazing, amazing night @aronoffcenter with The Mersey Beatles!
We’ve seen Rain at Aronoff Center. A couple of times actually. And The Mersey Beatles are the best Beatles cover band I’ve ever seen! Hands down. Click to see all the photos I took of The Mersey Beatles at Aronoff Center. 🙂

Happy “Back To The Future Day!”

Doc, where are we? If my calculations are correct, it’s October 21st, 2015 – the day Marty and Doc Brown arrive in the future, err… the present in their DeLorean time machine, as depicted in Back to the Future Part II. Pretty heavy, huh?

Great scott! Hopefully, the Cubs will get a win tonight. 🙂

Top of the Park.

After work this evening, we walked down to US Bank Arena to pick up our 12-pack of Cyclones season tickets. And on our way back home stopped by the Residence Inn to have a drink on their rooftop cocktail terrace, Top of the Park. Who knows how much longer it’ll be open this season…
