Violette and Vidock Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs Everyone! Did you miss us? We missed all of you, and we didn't get to see #1 for a whole eight days. It was really sad, but now she's back. ad she spent the whole morning with us yesterday as the "shoe man" came again.

The weather has been fairly wet, and as #1 hasn't been around to give me regular brushies, I was looking a bit brown and messy when she arrived. But she did give me a bit of a brushing before the farrier started work. It felt so good!

I think you guys all now the shoeing drill by now, don't you?

#1 and I took a couple of nice selfies, but you'll have to wait until Sunday for those!

Vidock: I got brushies too, and I got kisses on my pink spot during the entire time the farrier was working!

And we did selfies too!

Thankful Thursday

Da Beebs: Today, or American friends are celebrating Thanksgiving. Even though it is not a holiday of any kind here in France, we would like to say how very thankful we are for each other, all the love and good things we share, and for all of you, our Dear Friends around the globe.

We are also very thankful that #1 got home from her job a little earlier than expected yesterday, and so was able to at least deal with the bags from England that contained our stuff. I have to say that she totally outdid herself. Here is a panoramic view of the entire stash:

To the left is Tommy's stuff, in the middle is our stuff, and on the right is the stuff for the Vs, the wild birds and the hedgehogs. Here are some more photos

The woofie and the kitty stuff (Large bag of dog food is missing):

A couple of close-ups:

The horse treats, wild bird food and hedgehog food (large bag of peanuts missing):

And here I am, doing some detailed investigating:

Thanks, #1, for always thinking of us!

Tantalising Tuesday!

Tama-Chan: YES, she is back. Our #1 is home!!! This time, she got home a little later than usual because she took a wrong turn along the way and ended up wasting almost an hour. She says it's probably because she was so exhausted from all that power shopping. It took her hours to unload the car but she then said she was too tired to actually sort and put things anyway. So, everything is sitting in the living room in bags and boxes, and we have no idea what she brought us! Even worse is that she left at 8am this morning on a job, and won't be back until 6pm, with much the same scenario on Wednesday, so who knows when the proper unpacking will take place? Ah well, at least, she is here and last night was wonderful, knowing she was in the house with us. She says she missed us terribly.

I am spending the day in the sky hammock in the study:

PS: The whole of this week is going to be pretty crazy for #1, so we apologise in advance for not getting around to commenting properly, as we would wish to do.

Little me (Tama)

Da Little Beebs with Tommy

Serious and Sad SEIturday - Goodbye Sweet Nylablue

Sei-Chan: We try to keep this blog as upbeat as possible, but sometimes circumstances simply overtake us. We heard a few days ago that our dear sweet friend, Nylablue, would be going to he Bridge today. Now Nyablue has had serious health problems for quite some time, including diabetes, and her amazing vet , Dr. Dave, and her Mom, Sherri-Ellen, have managed to keep her going and comfortable. But she has now come to the end of her journey, and we want her to leave with lots and lots of good thoughts from all of us at Poupounette Central.

Nylablue, you have always been the sweetest of friends to us here and you always leave such lovely comments. We are glad for each extra day we shared with you. We know how very much your adoring Mom will be missing you, and so shall we. Au Revoir, sweet friend.

Goodbyes are always so hard and somehow, this November is turning out to be a particularly sad month in term of goodbyes. So, remember everyone to love your family with all your heart each and every day. Each moment we share is precious.
