Well here it is Blest Sunday again. This year has just gotten away fwum us and is almost ovew. While dat might not mean vewy much to yous, it’s vewy impurrtant fur us. It mawks a weal milestone in ow lives. See just a little ovew a year ago now we got ow vewy first catputer. Mommy knew nuffin’ ‘bout ‘em but most of ow bills and bankin’ had swiched ovew and wuz gunna stawt chawgin’ us a mumffly fee ifin weez didn’t jump on da ‘puter bandwagon. Well of course weez didn’t hav da munny fur no [uter, but mommy continued to look wound. Hers finally found a puter weez kuld buy and ordered it. It wusn’t long afur weez had it in ow house, and mommy began to twy to figger out what to do wiff it.
Da local community college has a bwanch here in ow town and they offer clases fur da seniors here fur furee. Well mommy purromptly signed up fur a Facebook class. Alwight even livin’ off da gwid and under a rock weez had heard of Facebook. Da first class mommy learned hers wuz gunna hav to cweate a Facebook account. WTC (what the cat) Mommy bein’ a purrivate purrsun and a single lady livin’ alone hers ‘cided wight away hers didn’t want hers foto and name all ovew da net, so hers cweated sed Facebook account under Lexi and meez name. And then hers went about liking a foo sites and so on. Da nex fing hers knew she wuz bein’ asked ifin weez, sis Lexi and me; had a page. It took ‘bout 3 weeks, afur hers figgered out what to do to cweate us a page, but soon nuff hers got it up and began to tell ow stowwy. And what followed wuz beyond ow wildest dweams or expectations.
Peeps stawted followin’ ow stowwy and commentin’ and messagin’ us and weez made furiends. Now meez knows yous all know dat’s what Facebook calls da peeps dat follow yous, but weez mean “Weal Furiends.” Peeps dat weally cawed ‘bout us and dat luvved us as much as we luvved them. Weez kuldn’t wait evewyday to connect wiff ‘em, and shawe in their joys and sowwows and hav them do da same. Afur long those same furiends became pawt of ow framly. And weez don’t know what we wuld do wiffout ‘em. And then a foo mowe mumffs down da road and weez had a blog and even mowe furiends. And yous know what? Y’all hav become pawt of ow framly too. Weez awe so blest.
Weez hav come so faw in a year it’s kinda skeery. We can’t magine ow lives now wiff out yous all in it. And weez not want too. Yous know when we stawted out mommy didn’t know nuffin’ bout editing fotos much less usin’ foto apps or online photoshoppin’. And now weez pawticipate in a Caturday Art Blog Hop. When weez stawted mommy didn’t know nuffin’ ‘bout makin’ videos, and now weez hav ow own YouTube channel. When meez stawted bloggin’ mommy didn’t even know how to let me leave a comment fur meez oldest and dearest bloggin’ furiend Timmy Tomcat (hims blog wuz on a diffewent furmat). It wuz Timmy dat got us into bloggin’ in da first place and now weez kuldn’t even comment on hims posties.
Well dat’s all behind us now and weez can comment on any blog anywhere. And weez hav accounts wiff Twitter, Pinterest, Flickr, Tumblr (All under da name Deziz World), of course Facebook and ow newest and most undeveloped, Instagram. Can yous believ it? A year ago weez didn’t even know what these fings wuz. Meez a Cat Scout and sis Lexi and me awe boff members of da Tabby Cat Club. Weez also membews of a foo cat specific sites like da Cat Channel. And nun of this wulda evew happened ifin weez hadn’t got a catputer. Weez learn new fings evewyday, and just last night mommy learned how to use a fumm dwive. Can yous believ it? Afur yous go gettin’ all ‘cited ‘bout mommy gettin’ smawt, hers kuldn’t hav dun it wiff out help fwum Mr. Pete, Timmy’s daddy. Hims walked mommy fwu what to do and now hers a fumm dwive natuwal. (It’s okay Miss Tricia hav yous a good laff just don’t spit out da coffee). Fur those of yous wunnewin’ dat’s Miss Tricia of da Katnip Lounge. She’s way cool and gets a weal kick outta me sayin’ fumms. Most of yous know hers and da lounge but ifin any of yous not know ‘em yet, head on ovew, those cats got a gweat set up there in da desert.
Anyways, me sed all dat to show yous just how blest weez weally awe. Blest Sunday is ow favowit posty to make. We know it has vewy little to do wiff us bein’ service cats or ow work or play, but it’s a time to weflect on da good in ow lives. And all of these fings awe gweat, but da bestest and gweatest blessing is ALL of YOU!!!
Anudder blessing weez need to mention is da fundwaiser dat Savannah and Miss Linda be sponsowin’ fur us. Fank yous so much an fank yous to evewypawdy dat has donated. Yous can check it out here.
