Welcome back to Thankful Thursday Weekly Blog Hop, where the hop stays open all week. I am very thankful I had the opportunity to become pals with Jerra Hood and her cat Tinkie, but was deeply shocked to read Jerra has died. Two weeks ago Jerra and Tinkie joined Thankful Thursday for the first time and they left a comment: “Hoap dis gitz posted. i juss happee to hab a nicy hoam an i iz top cat” said Jerra, on behalf of her cat Tinkie.
Last week when they didn’t join again I left a message on the Friday asking if I could help her with her post. She didn’t reply. Jerra passed away on the Friday. I was very sad indeed. Jerra leaves behind her devoted husband Ron and their grown up family and her beloved cat Tinkie, whom she adored.
She was a lovely lady who had definite opinions and thankfully, was happy to stand up and say what she believed was right. She loved her family, her Tinkie and all animals. She was a “go getter” who was didn’t let anything hold her back and an inspiration to us all. I am thankful to have been pals with her and Tinkie.
Yesterday I spent the afternoon rescuing dogs, in the rain This sweet little girl-dog was seen cowering on the golf course. Only young she was shaking and very sad and just clung to me for life. I delivered her to the pound and I’m sure her owners would be arriving shortly. She was a beautiful little dog. Next was Jack, a very naughty dog who broke out of his yard and was seen by myself chasing kangaroos, which is a total “NO” in my books. Jack’s mother was STUNNED! Are you sure it was Jack? Yes. Are you sure? Yes. and so it continued.
Jack is living a double life – as Mr. Charming sitting on his mother’s lap and smiling and his other life is being a little thug racing around shouting at other animals like a little Mr. BullyPants. Jack’s mother (thankfully she IS a a very responsible pet owner), will make sure he can’t get out again, otherwise Jack will be taking a ride in ‘Her’ car to dog jail. BOL! *cheeky little piece of works*
What are you thankful for this week? Please join our blog hop and share your week with us. I highly recommend zipping around from blog to blog. Everyone’s site is different and your sure to get some laughs and great ideas. Every week I leave a comment on each pal’s blog, even if I’m a little late. *blushes* But I do get there in the end. :=o)
