Newsflash #34

Mr. Bowie’s Gotcha Day! We had a very good day yesterday. Some close friends surprised me with a visit and together we celebrated Mr. Bowie’s Gotcha Day outside in the garden. Thank goodness nine years ago Mr. Bowie decided to move in to my home. Due to the ideal weather conditions, it felt like the traditional guerrilla-surprise-pudding-parties from the past.

We had lots of ice cream with fresh grapes, blueberries and pineapple. Mr. Bowie had a combination of tuna, salmon and chicken pasta. Still warm weather today and heatwave (“history will judge” climate change deniers) set for the next days. Isn’t life grand? Sometimes.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

    • Hi Doug! Mr. Bowie wasn’t interested in our vanilla ice cream so we had his portion too… So happy for all the years with Mr. Bowie…

    • Oh ja, en nog eens bedankt voor de lekkere pralines. Net het doosje weer open gedaan bij mijn espresso… 🙂

      PS: gelukkig is Bowie niet geïnteresseerd in chocolade…

  1. I think BOTH of you made out well in the deal when Mr. Bowie decided your home would be his “forever”…..you make a grand pair too! Life is more full with a cat in it to be sure and I know you guys would have it no other way. The celebration looked delicious too – here’s to many MANY more gotcha days together.

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too
