i had plum forgot about that !!!
until the dear captain reminded me.
and since he is the sole reason for the peanut coming into being . . .
well . . .
i want to publicly embarrass him to pieces here
and say that he has been the best and the most favoritest host of a blog
that EVER was!
i’m proud to be a part of the fritter’s fleet.
he does good work.
yes sir. captain sir.
i’m so happy you pushed me to do this a year ago.
it’s been loads of fun!
and you have always had my back.
and you are so appreciated.
as a matter of fact . . . read my first post.
it’s about his kind of people.
‘ heroes among us. ‘
it’s in the side bar old bean. in previous posts!
we had a little party at the peanut last night.
yes. we celebrated early. we just couldn’t wait til saturday old bean!
we love a good peanut party. LOLOL.
my captain couldn’t come. he lives at land’s end you know.
the paradise of key west.
the conch republic.
on a simple little sailboat with two fur ship mates.
this is minnie. she’s catching some rays.
she’s first mate on his next door neighbor’s boat.
the captain was with us in spirit i’m sure.
we had our party. and a good time was had by all !!!
i’ll share with you some of the pictures we took.
it was quite a blast.
lots of friends came over.
snoopy lead the way of course.
woodstock and a few of his friends too.
music was provided by some other dear friends . . .
one even sang happy birthday solo !!!
i tell you.
THAT was a proud moment.
i shed a few tears. i did.
pooh showed up late.
it seems he stopped with the gang to . . .
you know . . .
eat some hunny.
and it took nigh unto an hour just to get him cleaned up again!
eyeore said he thought i’d never make it this far.
i thanked him for his encouragement.
don’t tell him.
but he’s my most favoritest one of all.
