I love my blogger friends

After reading so many wonderful things today from all of you, I wanted to give awards and thank yous and cyber hugs but my eyes are hurting and my arthritic fingers are sore so please let this suffice as my way of saying I’m grateful my path is crossing with so many wonderful new friends.


About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

  5. Thank you for showing me something I am glad to see.

    Beautiful song, thank you and good weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s a while since I’ve heard that song. That’s brightened my morning!

  8. I am so sorry to hear you have arthritis. It must be incredibly painful and I am thoroughly impressed that you manage to get a blog out at all.

    • That’s very kind of you. It’s not that bad and I deal with it. Just by the end of the day my muscles and joints… I think some of it is sequela from having a long bout with Lyme disease. Being raised and blessed with a good attitude keeps me in good shape and I have a very high tolerance for pain (don’t use any medications). I eat organic, exercise, write, work, and do what I can. When the joints get stiff I rest them. Trust me, it’s a hand I can deal with (no pun intended). Again, thank you so much for your kind heart. It means a lot. Paulette

  9. That was a wonderful way to start the morning!
    I’m so glad to have found your blog…..and I would never have guessed, starting out in blogging, how many great people I would ‘meet’ in the blogosphere.

    • I feel the same about you, Helen, and the blogosphere. I was bowled over with gratitude yesterday – it started with a heart broken woman reaching out to her blogger friends to help her find her kitty that had gone missing. The outpouring of others wanting to help her (all over the world) and what it meant to her was absolutely wonderful. There are so many wonderful, inspirational, heartbreaking, you name it things I’ve been encountering through my new friends-as you put it, great people. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ladysighs! What a lovely poem. An honor to have it on my wall. Thank you so much. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • mixedupmeme says:

      I was planning to write that same poem. ๐Ÿ™‚ Somebody beat me to it.

      I never know which side of the blog I am going to wake up on first. lol

      • Just seeing your wonderful face and having you stop by with your always welcome words is more than enough. And, you might have guessed that one of the wonderful bloggers who inspired me to post this song was you! You’ve been hitting it out of the box with the songs (the words) you’ve been putting on you blog lately. Brought back a lot of great memories. lol with you, my friend. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • mixedupmeme says:

        I enjoyed listening to the song you shared. I always listen to the songs people include. I know it is not something they themselves sang or played. But I know it was something special they wanted to share. I listened to a Beethoven the other day from a blogger. It was long but I just went about reading blogs and kept listening. Or maybe it was Mozart…..can’t remember. lol But it was nice. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank for your frienship.
    Excuse me for my bad English

    • Thank you so much for your lovely comment, natuurfreak. I am so much better in the last year, after being ill with Lyme disease for well over ten years. So, I’m very grateful for all my improvements and that I can do so much more. It’s actually kind of sweet, coming from having a life full of health then losing it and now feeling so grateful for so little. I look at that in a way as a gift. You’re English is just fine and very easy to understand. I’m grateful to know you also. Paulette ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. you’re pretty great yourself. ๐Ÿ™‚
