Happy Independence Day to All.

Historical Fireworks on Cape Ann MA

None this summer of 2020 except for the amateur ones. In some ways that is good as
I did not feel like celebrating having lost my dear sweet yorkie on July 2nd.
She wasn't 'just a dog' ~ she was my love and life.

Our neighbor's cat on Cape Ann MA.
He is probably watching the chipmunks that seem abundant this year.

We love your comments, thank you.

    No one can blame you for wanting it low-key... hope you are able to celebrate America's freedom day to some degree. YAM xx

  7. She was a special little pebble on the beach of life. So sorry to learn about Zoe! There is no way to describe the feelings the loss of such a dear friend brings. No doubt, she had the best possible life and will remain your muse, only now as an angel. Having gained her wings, perhaps one day she will be the subject of art on your stones. I still feel my beloved pet around me even though she’s been gone for many years. Take care!

  8. Oh no Carol. I am so sorry to hear that Zoe has crossed the rainbow bridge. My heart goes out to you. May your loving memories of her help heal your heart at this time of loss.

  9. Sweet kitty. Hugs to you at this sad time, Zoe's sweet self touched so many of us, she will be missed.

  10. Very sorry to learn about Zoe. Sending my best wishes to you.

  11. I'm going to miss the fireworks display, but I sure heard a lot of bangs and pops in the neighbourhood last night. - Margy

  12. So very sorry about Zoe, she was such a sweetie.
    Sending healing hugs.

    All the best Jan

  13. So sorry about your loss - Last I knew she was taken to the vet. hugs to you.

  14. Oh dear Carol, I am so sorry for the loss of darling Zoe. Seeing her in every post , I feel as if I've lost a friend in her. I send healing thoughts and prayers across the sea to you. Jo xx

  15. oh I'm so sorry about your baby, she's over that rainbow bridge watching over y ou. I can understand you wanting a quiet 4th of July, sending hugs.

  16. Your photo is fabulous Carol. I can certainly understand that you don't feel celebratory having just lost Zoe. She was a light in these dark days for many of us. I know I certainly was attached to Zoe and I never met her. She was a dear...as you are. Big hugs coming your way from me.
    The chipmunks are doing too well here. My neighbor says she thinks they are in the walls of her house. They have to get someone there to rid them. They can be a menace if they get into your home. We have them all around our house. I hope they don't decide to move in. There are very few outside cats around here. Too many dogs in the neighborhood I guess. Just as well because cats don't discern their prey. They catch too many good things.

  17. Happy July 4th.
    I'm so sorry for your loss. It's not easy, I know.

  18. We totally understand how you feel. Sending you hugs.....

    Pinot and mom. xoxo

  19. Wish i could come give you a hug.

  20. I get it Carol. Sending continued love and prayers my friend.

  21. Oh my ! That's shocking and really made sad to hear her lose... I know how close you were and i have no words to console as myself lost our dear pet in last november. Take care
