Tinkling Wind Chime Spirit Selfie

Its been a rather quiet week here in our den...
Garden chores, doctor appointments, expeditions to get the mail, bring home nom sand si forth was the order of the day when our peeps were  not at their jobs.

Petcretary won a prize from Dakota's Den, a coupon for a free bag of noms from Rachael Ray. With the picky eating habits of MJF these days, its hard to decide which one he might enjoy. We shall see.

She also won another prize from the same blog, in a different giveaway, so now we have a frisbee. And a water travel cup and a tote bag to hold it all and more!

Thanks Dakota, for having those giveaways!

Oops, sorry; she just furgot:)

We also got a beautiful set of wind chimes. What??! We didn't order those! So where did they come from, then? Well, when petcretary unpacked the chimes, a little card fell out. And it said that it was a gift from all of Minko's Catster, Facebook, and Blogging furends. Awww...that started a fountain coming from her face windows again...Minko's name and a little remembrance note is on a heart that hangs from the chimes. They sure tinkle with a lovely set of tones.
Thanks so very much, all of you! We do not know who you all are purrsonally, but we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

  When petcretary saw these next images, she was rather astounded. Look at them and what do you see??  Petcretary said it was as if a spirit or two was dancing around those chimes, one of them being Minko showing his approval and thanks to his earthly furends for sending those to petcretary.

Maybe the 'spirit(s)' wanted to have a selfie in our blog:)
  There are also a lot of sweet picture mementos on petcretary's FB page. (She hardly evfur accesses that FB stuff for herself.) She didn't even know they were there, she had to message a cousin about something else, and wow, she discovered them all. Once again, her fountains resumed. Thanks so much to all of you who posted those for us, and the sentiments/comments that were there, too.

What evfur would we do without all the support we have had to help us get through the loss of our sweet Minko.

Sometime eventually petcretary will gather those all together to make a post here so you can see them all.

Well, now, we know you want to see us, right?!? Righto!
These are all taken with the zoom feature on petcretary's camera, so they are rather fuzzy. She says ts 'soft focus', MOL!!

MrJackFreckles being serious...

...and silly!! BOL!

Petcretary also made a few picture/cards for some good furends:

  1. What beautiful wind chimes... and absolutely magical too. <3

  2. the wind chimes are super sweet... it is a little as if our friends will talk to us... congrats for winning twice!!! that is is fantabulous!!!

  3. The chimes are really pretty. Momma has chimes for Jezebel and Whitley - they are really speshul.

  4. Oh I can think of nothing lovelier to remember Minko with that chimes. What a brilliant idea and the little weight with the message on, how beautiful.

    We know you will miss Minko a lot, we do, when we visit as well.

  5. Crikey ..... those spirits were having a big party, aye?? They were everywhere. I think they were trying to tell you that Minko is safe and happy with friends and family members. Those chimes are so pretty.

  6. What a BEAUTIFUL wind chime! Love the colors and the tribute to doubt those "sun orbs" are him stopping by with a seal of approval. We just love wind chimes here as they are ready reminders of the value of a refreshing breeze and maybe - just maybe - a passing Angel!

    Love, Teddy

  7. Those wind chimes are beautiful, and how lovely to see the spirit orbs admiring them. I am sure it is Minko showing his approval.

  8. What a beautiful and thoughtful gift. We know that each time petcretary hears those chimes she will know that Minko is there and sending you all his love. It definitely looks as if he was visiting and checking it out. You have an absolutely gorgeous garden. You must not have any wild critters in your yard. When our humans had woofies, they loved to play frisbee, and they would play everyday. We think all your selfies are wonderful. Sending lots of love, hugs and prayers. Thanks for being friends and faithful hoppers. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Lisbeth, Astrid, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

  21. What a lovely wind chime to remember Minko. His spirit will always be making music in the garden.

  22. Oh, what a lovely gift to remember Minko and your friends together. And you are so sweet to think of others on their special days. We don't think your petcretary has much time on her hands to do these things. :)

  23. Those wind chimes are beautiful! What a lovely way to remember Minko. And such a sweet gift from friends. Sending lots of love!

  24. We have always liked the saying "when the wind blows know that I am near" and so it seems true with the pictures that Minko's spirit was in the garden waiting for you to catch the picture. Happy number 30 Anniversary. Hey, di, hey, di, hoh Hooray for 30 years!
    Thanks for being a friend
    Sweet William The Scot
