Feline Friday

 Feline Friday Do you think this cat is being truthful?

This cat thinks he is an airplane. Like children, a cat and or a dog would rather play inside an empty box than play with the expensive toys inside. 

The Lord cares about living creatures. He is not concerned with color, he created man/woman in His own image. He created animals to use for good not to abuse or harm. The bible is filled with Scripture showing how much God cares for all His living creatures.

Do you subscribe to any magazines? I use to get many of them but today I only keep up with a few. I use to get Good Housekeeping, I love Bon Appetit and Better, Homes and Gardens along with Southern Living.

This dog cracks me up! Is it really Friday already? Y A Y ! It means for me, I get 9 whole days, God willing, with my sweet husband Avery. He is on vacation . We will celebrate Hannah's big birthday bash Saturday. We will have all week long to do somethings we have beein missing. We heard a favorite pizza place in Colorado Springs, Fargo's is back in business after nearly a year hiatus! SO grateful for this. 

It will be so nice to go back and have pizza with our phamily. 

Fargo and Sophie have greeted guests since December 1973. Boy oh boy, was I a youngster back then barely in my first year of college. 

Having participated in the Tuesday 4 blog hop and talking about my blogging experiences throughout the years, I started to think of people who blogged and then left for whatever reason, Here are a few of them:

Linda  lives on a Kansas farm. She is an Alaska born girl living her life out on the plains of Kansas. She and her husband Phil are the most amazing CHRISTian couple. Their mission has always been to bring people  to Christ.  I miss the days of her blogging and keeping up with the farm and their kids and grands. What a wonderful person Linda is. She is the most amazing friend and I had the pleasure of meeting her, Phil and their daughter Tressa on a trip to Sterling, Kansas to watch Nick run in a college XC Meet. I love Linda like a sister and she is always there for anyone who needs prayer.  I really wish she had the time to come back to blog.

Barb I have known Barb since age 13. She was my first pen pal from Tiger Beat magazine. Back in the day when you could make friends without fear of meeting a kidnapper or get involved in some horrible situation. She is the one who encouraged me to blog. I miss her keeping up her blog. Life happens to allof us, I just wish she could come back and journal all the things she has had to deal with regarding health issues for both herself and her sweet hubby. Did I mention I was her maid of honor when they married in 1977? We keep in touch, still today.

Shannon This lady is one of the sweetest kind hearts I know. She had a wonderful blog, a journal of sorts. She has a business JunkFlirt and she repurposes old furniture and whatnot. Her talent is incredible and she suffers from a disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis. She suffers in pain more than I could even imagine yet she preserveres and works hard on her business. I know a bit about the disease because my great cousin Mike has it. He wrote about on his blog Life in BoJon Town because the illness strikes many people with an Eastern European ancestry. Mike knows I would like to see him blog again. He has the most colorful language of anyone I know who blogs but he has not had an easy time with his health. I loved when he told stories of our childhood neighborhood. He always say, no matter where I live, Bojon Town will always be my home. I feel the same way he does. Mike also knows I will take any opportunity I can to badger him about blogging. He has a real knack for writing and all those stories, they warm my heart.

Angela is another blogger who I miss so much. She had a blog hop called Tuesday Show and Tail. It was so much fun and I keep bugging her to come back to blogging too.

I didn't write this to slight any other blogger that stopped but if you read this and know others, please give us all a shout out. I use to have this crazy dream that I was given the opportunity to travel America in one of those luxury RV's. I would dream that I traveled from states A to Z and would track down each blogger I knew in each state. Wouldn't that be the coolest job ever? The thing about dreams, no one can take them away from you.

In memory of my old neighborhood, my folks and all those amazing great BoJon's I know Goodnight and Sweet Dreams. May God bless each one of you and may we live to see another day all together now, God willing.

I do not likeit when a blogger just leaves with no warning and no good-bye or explanation. I always wonder...are they sick? Dead? Has something awful happened?

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

It is sad when a blogger just disappears. I wish they could write one last post to say they are stopping, maybe through ill health or just run out of words. No explanation is needed but at least we would know they are still in the land of the living.
I hope you and your husband have a lovely holiday. BTW, we have the same surname as his Christian name.

Love all the funnies and kitties and pups are always right about everything.

I miss many bloggers that used to blog. Some are gone from all media and some passed away unexpectedly. We still miss them. So many wonderful friends that we miss.

Have a wonderful week off with hubby. I know you're have a great time together.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Love and hugs. ♥

Weren't we just talking about that? Bloggers who, for one reason or another, drop out of sight. It shouldn't, but man it makes my heart hurt, and I've been known to lift a prayer. God knows the details.

So glad y'all are going to get to enjoy eating out at one of your favorite places. Woot!

Brian said...

That was a darn good post and I enjoyed those funnies. Hooray for the favorite pizza place being back open, enjoy!

Edna B said...

I agree, we have lost a lot of wonderful blogger folks over the years. But at least we got to know them for a while. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Sometimes I wonder if some bloggers think their blog posts have to be perfect so, if they can't be, they skip posting altogether. You know what I mean? Some bloggers think their posts have to be super-interesting, filled with wonderful pictures to match, and be nothing but positive. And when they can't produce a post to fit that bill, they skip posting altogether.

As for me? *haha* I post whatever's on my mind for that day. I think that makes blogging not so much of a chore.

Thanks for the laughs!
