Getting Close to Christmas Sunday Selfies

 Its Sunday once again! How fast the time goes, even as one day melts into the next. Petcretary was so busy she did not even have time to get out her we are going to use the 'Blessing Train' box car as our selfies this week.

Its still horrible at petcretary's work place. They lost more residents this very sad. Including one of her 'faves'. Sigh...The best Christmas present for her would be to have this evil virus gone. The vaccine(s) might help, along with God's intervention.

She, thankfully, remains negative as per the twice weekly testing.

Petcretary was out shopping earlier this week, and she got a call from pawppy...'I was in an accident.' Yikes!

He was making a right turn, and he had the right of way, when he got hit by another driver, his car is out of commission and may even need to be totaled...but we sure hope not. Pawppy is fine, praise the Lord! As if we didn't have enough to deal with on our plates...

He continues to progress well with his spinal fusion recovery.

On Saturday, *she* gathered up all the kitty accoutrements and litter and food that was still here, and took it to a local kitty shelter. They thought it was like early Christmas presents. The kitties there are mostly free roaming, and they were all over the furniture such as cubbies and small cat trees, as soon as it was put down! So cute! No meezers there, though,, else petcretary might have been sorely tempted. Lots of kitties of all kinds, ginger dudes, calico, tuxies and tabbies, too. And not a few black cats. They were all so pretty and hoping for a new home for Christmas. But this evil virus mess has limited their access to public adoption events. So they work with virtual methods, and a lot of advertising.

Petcretary doesn't have a smart phone else she might have made some pics to show you all. Maybe they will email some to her so she can show them later...hopefully.

Speaking of Christmas, we still are in major shambles mode at our den, so the Christmas things might have to wait till just before The Day...but none the less, it will be Christmas, decorated or not!!

We have not seen *her* making a Christmas card to send out as yet....she was very busy doing memorial cards for us to send to the families of some new angels...sheesh, so close to Christmas, too:(

Cards for snail mail?? Not even those! She is bogged down and need an other holiday...not happening till after Christmas...maybe she should give up and just send out New Years cards!! BOL!

So here is our box car:

This is our blessing train Boxcar, for 2020...we are 'cheating' a bit and using this as our selfie for this week...actually its an 'ussie'!! LOL!
We are part of the Blessing Train of 2020

Angel Pipo

In these three Angel selfie flashbacks, only the halos were added, the hat and collars were actually worn by them, when these images were taken years ago.

Angel MrJackFreckles
Angel Minko


Sadly there were several more new angels that we have heard here the cards we made in their honor. We hope they give a tiny measure of comfort to those of their hurting furmilies.

  4. Those pics of your angels are wonderful. We’re sorry to hear your pawppy got into an accident but thank cod he is okay. And we continue to purr for your petcretary...that she continues to be virus free. What a sad sad time it is.

  5. I love your blessing Train it is so lovely and your Angels are all perfect!

    I hope that the other driver is OK too. It is essy to blame them, they have have been distracted or heaven knows what but I am glad that your dad is safe. What a scare!!

  6. we hope the insurance can solve all problems in time... what sh... year for so many people and as if we have not enough sad moments... hugs to you all...

  7. My human had lots of stuff left over from Boodie, and that got donated to a local foster human, who was also very grateful.

  8. That is a nice selfie of you both in the Blessing Train.
    I am glad Pawppy wasn't hurt in the accident. It is bad enough that he is recovering from surgery.
    It is very hard for Petcretary in her work, but I am glad she is keeping safe.

  9. Beautiful selfies and blessing train too. Like a favorite book, old selfies are so good to see again.
    we are glad the Dad is okay and you too, petcretary. Life is more stressful now for so many, added to this time of year it can feel exhausting. We are glad you got some kitty love and we are sending special messages to Benji and Dalton to sit on your lap so you get to put your feet up! Stay safe, stay well, stay strong, xoxoxox, Bibi & Meep

  10. All we can think to do is place our paws together for you and yours ...

  11. oh dear God, on top of the surgery, and everything else an accident? Thank GOD he is ok!!! We also put our paws together in prayer for all of you!

  12. We really loved seeing Minko, Pipo and MJF angel pictures. How wonderful and they are looking down with love. We are sure they are in the welcoming committee at the Bridge. It is so sad more friendsare going this time of year. Last year was bad too. Love you all and are so glad Pawppy is doing ok. Sorry about that car and purrs for Mom at work that must be so difficult

  13. I did my Christmas decoration but no tree ! I have put garlands and balls in my huge plants and it looks like a Christmas tree. Your husband was really lucky, the car less, but a car you can replace but not your husband although some women do ! Your photos are great looks real good.
    I never send Christmas cards per snail mail, they never arrive or it takes ages and it is Easter !
    I make Xmas cards myself and send them per email. at least they arrive !

  14. I have been extremely busy working lately too. Fortunately there are no covid positives among the staff and patients right now. But we still have no night shift nurse, and now another evening shift nurse quit. I'll probably be working through the entire holiday. We hope and pray your facility can overcome this awful disease!

    Sorry about Pawppy's car accident. People are driving crazy lately! Glad he's all right.

    We loved seeing the pictures of your angels. Oh and we might borrow the beautiful one you made with Hershey. He was a friend of ours too, and we hope his Daddy will still come visit our blog.
