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
) I got a link to this article.

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!

  I am so very sorry to hear about your cat. He was beautiful - and looks SO much like my cat Pepper.

    Between reading blogs, responding to blogs, doing Facebook, general emails and then the regular phone calls all the time on the cell phone, I have been totally avoiding Twitter. Also the news is always that good. Glad you blog

    My dentist recently moved and his number on the internet is incorrect. When I called the woman who answered was very gracious and gave me the correct number. Unfortunately, this is an unusual experience.

    I agree, she deserves something from the team for forwarding the calls to them.

    What a good sport she is (ha ha ha-no pun there)!! Hope she made a few friends amidst the misdirected callers!

(I assume that's the kind of football they're calling about - lol!)

Sorry about your dear Percy.

    I am so sorry about Percy. I think you probably did what was really best for him, as the prognosis was so poor. But I know it's still so hard. Hugs.

Those phone calls that lady gets would drive me crazy but she really is remarkable the way she handles it.

    Thanks for your sharing... So sorry about Percy.. it is amazing what a huge hole a relatively small cat can leave in ones heart & home. What a great attitude the 'Gram' shows.
By the by, I didn't know there were rules to define a proper blog.

    I think the connection she made to her son is what's made her keep the number.

    I don't tweet or twitter or whatever. In fact, embarrassing as it is to admit, my cell phone plan doesn't include texting or a data plan, however, I do see the benefits of having those things. Depressing to think that even the Vatican has a twitter account. I'm not on facebook, either. According to my friends, I'm a dinosaur.

I liked your news story. Makes you think of all the wrong numbers you've dealt with over the years, doesn't it? Gwenda Bullock certainly does handle it well. It would be nice if the team did something!

    well I've only just now subscribed to your blog so of course, I had to go and read the referenced links. I'm so sorry and so sad about Percy. I don't like those kind of days at all, I'm sure no one does. But I will say at least we can do that for our pets, one last act of love. RIP Percy

    Sorry to hear about your cat. I had a similar predicament with mine about a year ago and had to "bite the bullet" as well. emoticon It's so hard to see them suffer.

    I smiled when I read about the lady getting the wrong number calls and chatting with people. I cried when I read of Percy. The memory of my Callie's last weeks is still painfully fresh after 5 years. He was 18. So my heart goes out to you for having to lose him. Perfectly understandable given his circumstances.

  So sorry to hear about Percy, but I believe you did the best thing for him emoticon

Only Football ( emoticon here in the USA) fans will understand how tickled she is to have this phone number, no bother at all.

We have hosted Soccer Coaches for the last 6 summers, from England, Wales, Scotland and last year from Brazil.

    Wow! I think never mind the season ticket - give her something that require her going out to the crowd! They really should show some appreciation for her being so cordial about it!
