Special Thank You to Jackie

 

 

 We are so very thankful for our long time blogging friend, Jackie. One of the blogs that inspired me (actually Nellie Bellie) to start writing was Two Devon Cats. Eric and Flynn were two Ginger Tuxies and Nellie (and I) were smitten with their adventures in the British Devon country side. 

Eric and Flynn are so exciting to read because of Jackie's writing. She made their adventures through the fields, their expert knowledge of mouse hunting, intruuders, climbing trees and how to sleep in pots in the greenhouse exciting and fun. Because of Jackie, I was introduced to the world of cat blogs and I began-first with Nellie and now with Marv. Through the last 12 years we have become blogging friends. Even with the passing of Eric and much later Flynn, she still publishs "flashbacks" of Eric and Flynn Forever on Patrol, but she also has a marvellous blog of photos from her travels (Jackie's Photos Blog). She is still a most frequent commentor on mine and many other blogs.

THis last weekend, Jackie entered hospital with suspected TIA(s) and she is also a long time cancer survivor. Please keep her, and her cherished husband Ivor in your purrayers. We are sending extra special hugs, head bonks, purrayers and  strength to both Jackie and her husband Ivor.

Again, an enormous THANK YOU to Jackie for all her wonderful comments, her support and encouragement when I had difficulties.

    Although not a lady or blog with which I have connected, anyone within our 'six degrees' surely deserves POTP and Love at such a difficult time- so I add mind to the universal pot! YAM xx
