Not a proper blog


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, May 02, 2013

From thinking of Twitter as something for people with too much time on their hands, I've recently become a bit of a fan.

A lot depends on who you follow. Being English, I follow the BBC. (I can just hear you thinking 'jolly good chaps!' and trust me, they don't talk like that any more except on Radio 4).

For people who don't use Twitter for news purposes, all the news sites tweet when they put up a new feature and put in a link. Well this evening, as I'm curled up on the sofa, with remaining cat (for details of the other cat see confitdecanard.wordpress
.com/
) I got a link to this article. www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wa
les-22385220


And I thought 'aw'. Isn't it sweet? Most of us would be foaming at the mouth but this lady just takes it all in her stride.

I hope they give her a free season ticket!

    Sorry to hear about your cat. I lost my 18 year old chiquaqua last year. I was the one he took to the most and it still hurts. The lady in the story must have a lot of patience. Getting all those calls would drive me nuts. Patience is not a virtue I have, but would like to. Thanks for sharing the story.

    What a positive, happy lady to take all those calls with such equanimity and humor! She definitely needs a ticket or 2!

    As an abject cat slave myself, I am sorry about Percy. But, if he was the proper Pimpernel that he doubtless was, he doubtless enjoyed a marvellous life with you...

    I was dragged into the 21st century by wanting to maintain communication with our grandkids.

Twitter, Facebook (which can be a real time waster) and texting are all now of my lexicon and are used regularly.

    What a lovely lady. You're right, she should have free
tickets. I am spending too much time on Spark and FB.
Don't think I would be able to cope with Twitter as well.

    Oh sweetie, I just read about your cat, I am so sorry! He looks like our Cleo, who was 17 and very ill when we had her put to sleep last July - we still miss her, despite our travelling life. Our pets are our family, you know?

Big hugs to you!

    It may not have been a 'proper' blog, but as always it was interesting to read, and what a lovely article (such a nice lady).
Have a fantastic weekend - looks like the weather in Englandshire will be lovely (I'll be hanging out in the snow and cold in Scotland!)
