Love this post. Missed you so much. Sorry to hear about Chico. I've had a heartache like that I wish I could erase from my memory. I'm sad to hear about Pat. I'm happy to know that he is in a much better place though.

Loves to you. XXXX

We have missed you, dear Dani! It's good to see you back and get an all-comprehensive update on your life!

It's fun getting to know Chico's character in your posts - sorry to hear about the breakup. Hope all else is going ok...

And stick with the word "voluptuous!"

I'm so sorry Dani to learn that Pat has passed away.

I hope Katherine Ok ~ Tell her I'm thinking about her. Hope her year ahead at school goes well. I just know it will.

Bowser is going for his 1st haircut at the end of the month. It's badly needed! I bet Maggie is looking pretty after her visit to the Hairdressers!

H is for a big hug to you!

Oh how I have missed your blog. I get so consumed with other things. It's time to slow down.
I mean this in a good way, but you always seem to bring tears to my eyes.
You have such a talent for writing and putting emotions on paper.
I'm so glad I stopped by today.
