TODAY, my friend Garfield arrived in Bellingham! Meet Joyful Jerri, who is not only a MOD, but a...hmmm, yeah, she told me this wouldn't be easy; not like someone with Garfield Obsessive Disorder could be called GOD. (We'll have to work on that.)Despite having never met in person nor having spoken on the phone before her impending arrival, we spoke tonight for hours on the phone once she checked into her hotel room because I spent a second day confined to bed, and this is one gracious, kind, empathetic, awesome friend. She understood and encouraged me to rest so we will meet up tomorrow around 11'ish! (I can hardly wait.) Felt like talking to an old friend I have known forever. YES, MODS, I TOLD HER YOU ALL SEND YOUR LOVE AND BEST WISHES AND EVEN NAMED NAMES, YA'BETCHA I DID!
KNOW SHE FEELS THE LOVE.Well, tomorrow is NOT going to be Day 3 in bed so off to sleep we go with our friend bringing record-breaking, unseasonal, gorgeous, sunny weather with her for which I am personally grateful. As much as the rest of the world is being traumatized by catastrophic events caused possibly by global warming and climate change, this is the first real "summer" I have experienced since moving to the Pacific Northwest in 1991, and I am LOVIN' IT!
This is Joyful Jerri in her award-winning "Witchypoo Garf" costume which, should she wear it here, would make her look like a "local!"
(We're that kind o'town, ya know!)
Sweet dreams, all. I'll give her a big hug for ya, too!
