Traipsing Off Into the Sunset

We’re a bit down in the mouth today in Wildflower Junction. Our sister Filly, Geralyn Dawson, has packed up bag and baggage and left us. She’s caring for aging parents, meeting her deadlines, taking care of a husband and children, and fulfilling her duties for the breast cancer foundation. As you know when the days just aren’t long enough, something has got to give. And so she has decided to bid us farewell.

We’re going to miss Geralyn terribly. We love her to death and can’t imagine doing this without her. She’s certainly been an inspiration and a joy to work with.

But, you know how it is when the sun sets and a body has to mosey on down the trail. We wish her only the very best. May she always know love and happiness wherever she goes. We’ve been privileged to have gotten to work with her for the time we had together and hope she won’t forget the way back to pay us an occasional visit. The welcome mat will always be out.

Now ah know y’all are dying to find out who’s replacing her. Hold on to your bloomers, I’m getting to that! The lovely and talented Kate Bridges will be taking her place. Kate has already guest-blogged a time or two on P&P so she’s no stranger to us. She’ll make a wonderful addition to our group.

 In fact, she’ll have her first appearance as a full-fledged Filly come Monday. Drop by and join us and initiate her all proper-like.

Well, those durn mules are in my vegetable garden again so I’d best skedaddle.

Until next time……

When I'm not keepin' all these Fillies in line, I'm practicing my roping so I can catch me a cowboy. Me and Jasper (my mule) are two peas in a pod. Both of us are as crotchety as all get-out.

  5. Will miss you Geralyn but family and responsibilities have to come first

    Kate glad to here from you.

  6. Geralyn, we’ve already told you we wish you the very best on our private loop, but I want to let you know again–and that we want you to stop by and see us often.

    Best of luck in everything you do! Hope to see you in San Francisco!

  7. Best Wishes in all that you do, Geralyn!

    We understand that family has first call on your
    time. We hope that you will visit with us when
    you find some time. God bless you and your family!!

  8. Geralyn, we’ve sure had a blast and we’re gonna miss you like everything. Wish you didn’t have to go but I understand. Please take care and think of us once in a while. Okay?

    Kate, I’m really looking forward to getting to know you better. We’re a fun bunch and I know you’ll fit in just fine.

  9. Thanks to all you little darlings for your messages to Geralyn and Kate. They’re greatly appreciated.

    Miss Kate, you’re too sweet to worry about my old mules. The durn fools got into the cabbage and turnips before I could get ’em out of that garden. I’m just fuming, I’m so mad. If they don’t watch their p’s and q’s I’ll sell ’em to the glue factory. That’ll fix their wagon!

  10. Geralyn, you’ll definitely be sorely missed, and hope you’ll be able to stop in and visit when you can, but definitely family and your other responsibilities have priority! Take care of yourself!

    Kate, so glad you’ll be joining the Fillies! How exciting!!

    Thanks for the news, Felicia!

  11. Geralyn we will all miss you so much, best wishes

    Kate welcome can’t wait to hear from you.
