Update on Tommy and Smokey, throwback Thursday

Hi everyone,
So many of you have asked if I've heard anything more about Tommy and Smokey and how they're settling into their new home in Madison, WI. As you may have read in yesterday's post, no, I'd not heard anything. Until this forenoon. Elizabeth sent me this photo and a few others that I think she will be posting on Instagram, so I didn't steal all of them. But I am so relieved. It looks like they're finally comfortable and doing their usual snuggle routine.
Thank you for asking about them.
And thank you for praying for them.
And thank you God for your patience with me and for your mercy and generosity.

Huge sigh of relief.

Hope you're having a great Thursday.

Here's what came through here earlier today:

Lots of rain, HUGE crash of thunder, amazing clouds!

And now,



And since I'm too old to have any sense of pride, I thought I'd show you this photo my sister dug up. Doesn't it just scream 1960's? (for those of you old enough to remember those ancient times). My hair was long, and the only way to tame it was with huge rollers and tape. And of course I was a goofball. So that kinda explains everything. My mom is in the background knitting. Knitting?? I don't recall ever seeing her knit in my life. Guess I wasn't paying attention. And my dad in shirt and tie, an insurance salesman after years of farming. We were living in the farmhouse in this photo, and my mom is watching TV. Perry Mason, presumably. I'm surprised we weren't eating Swanson's TV dinners off TV trays. Oh yeah, we did that too. And although my mom usually set a pretty table, I'm wondering if this was a Sunday afternoon. I might have needed to re-tame my wild hair for the Sunday evening service at the Baptist church.

So happy that the kitties are doing well in their new home. LOVE that picture of you in the curlers long ago with your Parents. We always got our hair curlers on Saturday for Sunday Church. We used the little pink sponge ones:) Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

Glad you heard from the kitties. Used the same kind of rollers. Your mom must have finished sunday dinner early. And what's with the tribal markings on your cheeks?

This was so fun! Loved the family pic with overflowing personality and history. I can only imagine how relieved your were to know your snuggle babies are doing well. I know how happy I was to hear that as well. LOL! There are a lot of loyal Smokey and Tommy fans out here.
