Tom: Can you believe it? Today is our 2000th blog post! It is way beyond what most of us can count but #1 says it is quite epic! We started blogging in late June 2008 and you can see our very first post here. Back then, it was just me and Sen-Chan, so we were a pretty small family. There was also Auntie Madrac from next door (Mad Fernant's predecessor) and she used to hang out with us a lot. Over the years, we have lost some of our family and gained several more. Now there are seven of us in the Poupounette Gang, rather than the original two. Of course, the Vs don't actually live with us but I am the go-between who transmits news between the Chans and the Vs so everyone knows what is going on.
Aside from #1, the other constant in the Poupounette since Post 1 has been ME! Over the years, I have made sure to love each and every member with all my heart, so we thought we would celebrate our 2000 posts with pics of me and all of my family over the years.
Here I am, not long after I arrived at Poupounette Central, with my buddy Sen-Chan (Photo - 2007):
And with Auntie Madrac (Photo - 2008):
I adopted Tama-Chan very quickly after she came to live with us. She really needed me after Sen-Chan went to the Bridge (Photo - 2009):
The next one who joined us was Sei-Chan (Photo - 2009)
Then came our very special Yuu-Chan, like a shooting star who left far too soon (Photo: 2010):
I digress a little but Yuu-Chan was very special and he also loved and looked after everyone. Here he is with little Bibi (Photo: 2010):
Me and Da Beebs, we go way back to the time when he was knee-high to a grasshopper (Photo: 2010)!
Then the Big V came into our lives. I never actually get too close to him…(Photo - 2011)
And little Genji! He was terrified of me at first but that didn't last long (Photo - 2011)!
The last one to join the Poupounette Gang was sweet Violette. I got to meet her when she was still living in that field, all on her own. But the one who really befriended her was Mad Fernant! Go figure (Photo - 2011)!
And the story of the Poupounette Gang would not be complete without our #1 who loves us all to bits. Here is a nice photo, taken by a friend a few years ago, of her and me in the big field (Photo - 2010):
It has been a wonderful adventure for us to blog. We have made so many friends (and sadly lost some too), and learned so much. I personally have only one motto by which I live each and every day, and that is to love everyone!
We would like to share the love on this special day and so we are running a commenthaton in order to send some special items from their wish list to the Winnie's Wish kitties
