Memories!

 Today is the 14th Anniversary of my Dad Ron's Mom's passing.

 She would be/is my Granny and word has it she loved dogs to pieces.
Word also has it, there were other doggies
in my Dads lives before me and that Granny
loved them 'till the cows came home....smiles!

Ron and his Mom were very close,
as you can see in this picture...
showing each other a rock
found on a beach near her home.

Yes cancer may have taken her from our world,
but I know she was a good soul
because Ron is so good to me.
Doesn't that make sense!
Psst... her favourite colour was pink
so I dedicate this post to her
with all the pinkness
the world can offer!
Mwahhhhh!

  12. What a great picture.
    Everyone should have a good photo with their loved ones.
    It helps to keep the love alive long after they've left us.

  13. Hi Y'all,

    If you get a double post, please delete the incomplete. My computer did a blip and the post I started disappeared. :(

    I loved your post about your granny. I like your pink too. I love the picture you posted. It's very, very special.

    Y'all come by now,

  18. I'm so sorry honey, for your sad day. if she would have met you here, she would have fallen so deeply in love with you sophie, but i do believe she may have taken care of you before you were born, until you were ready to be with your 2 daddies... hugs and kisses and a handfull (or 2) of doggy treats for you, girl.. you can share them with your daddios too if'n ya wants... hee hee

  21. Ron, I'm sorry that I didn't see this before and that I wasn't blogging over the weekend.

    1. Thanks so much Mark...this year for some strange reason the memories were more pronounced...I think it was due to a few triggers...the weather was exactly the same....not working, so my mind wanders....and recent changes with Jim's family situation....all culminated in this post! Not to worry, I'll get through it...cobwebs are being cleared as I type!

  22. Hi Ron...I didn't see this either. I agree with Mark - your mom would be proud of you. Your gentle and loving spirit beam through this blog - your appreciation of the beauty of the world around you and the people in your life I'm sure are things she recognized long ago.

    -Lisa
