Oh my goodness Jackie, is the photo of Jim so adorable, look at that sweet innocent face.....and the way Jim has his paws crossed in the other photo, he is such a distinguished gentleman, what great photos and such contrasts in the two of them.
I was so touched to read that your Mum talks about Jim still and that she took photos of Hollywood Handsome Jim to share at the senior club with her friends and Jim's fans, that truly touched my heart to read that. Other than Vera (and here), no one talks about Bella anymore, and when I start to talk about her, the subject is quickly changed, I can't tell you how much that hurts. So I am happy to hear your Mum shares Jim with her friends, they were (and still are) an important part of our lives, and they should always be honoured that way.
The neighbour's leaves are starting to pile up, I have been keeping an eye open for when he rakes them, and I think he has been keeping an eye on me keeping an eye on his leaves......whew!!! did that make sense???
I'll have to find a creative way to kick them when he isn't watching, I'm sure Jim will have a good chuckle when I do so in his honour.
Sorry to hear Archie moved away, sounds like Layla is a little cutie, and you even got to walk her already, that is so wonderful. I couldn't help but think that maybe Jim AND Bailey were involved in choosing your new neighbour, I mean after all, a Shih Tzu....
It's Thanksgiving here this weekend, I remember you mentioned one time how you wished you had one there, so in honour of you as our British sister, I would like to wish you, Brian and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. It's not too late to cook up a nice meal and be sure to tell Brian to hoist one to our babies. I give thanks for this wonderful forum and all the friendships I have made from here, of course I give thanks to a special little girl, one who made me laugh each and every day.
Cheers to Jim, Bella and all their friends and especially cheers to you Jackie, thank you for all you have done for me here.
Happy Thanksgiving my dear friend, from our heart and home to yours, your friend always, Don, Vera and forever little Bella xo
