Happy Birthday, Sis!
Happy Birthday Ms. K!
Yes, today is Ms. K's birthday and I'm pretty sure most of my readers know who she is, and if you don't? please, by all means, go introduce yourself and wish her a happy birthday.
I hardly know where to begin....she is so very dear to me, I will tell you this though, she is my soul sister. Since we 'met' there hasn't been a day go by that we've not emailed each other...(OK, I take that back, remember when they had those high winds and their power was out? yep. it was every other day during that time) we began our emails in... August last year...that's an enormous amount of emailing, sharing of our lives, past, present, future.
She is an exceptional human being. Brilliant, we are talking s.m.a.r.t! Funny....begging for mercy kind of funny. Sweet and so very kindhearted. I'm also delighted and so very proud to say she is a great COB (Crusty Old Bitch) when the occasion arises (and it has).
I could go on and on....but I know you folks out there who read her blog know.....already...all the wonderful things that make up her Being.
I'll tell you this...
We both love elephants. I had seen a documentary on some elephants that had been rescued and were living in a sanctuary...but the two that really grabbed my heart, Jenny and Shirley...they had known each other when they were just 'youngsters', well, actually one was very young, the other several years older and took to taking care of the younger one... and due to human 'intervention' (I have my own word for this and it's 'X' rated) had been separated for years and years, I can't remember exactly how..but I believe (and I may have the names mixed up, sorry if I do) Shirley lived in the sanctuary already and they brought Jenny in one night...late...and put her in a holding pen for the rest of the night. The other one came in at some point after that...but what they found in the morning...Jenny and Shirley had found each other and in trying to get as close as they could to one another they had bent the bars on the gate separating the two areas. Seriously. They had bent the bars. Those were not small bars. Those were meant to be elephant proof bars. They BENT the bars. They (the humans) had to really work at getting those bars unbent enough to even open the gate. I remember watching that, and although it had been the second time I'd seen this, I sat there...with emotions welling up in my being, tears streaming down my face, because on a very deep level I understood. Bending the bars. Soul to Soul. Yep.
Flowers and games?
