A TRIBUTE TO MY FRIEND, OLDE DAME PENNIWIG



XOXO
AMY





PENNIWIG  BELIEVED  (BELIEVES)


IN  HELPING  PEOPLE  AND  NEVER


ONCE  CHARGED  FOR  A  GRAPHIC


ALMOST  365  DAYS  A  YEAR  SHE  CREATES


GRAPHICS  OR  CLEANED UP  GRAPHICS  AND


CREATED  DELIGHTFUL  STORIES  TO  GO  WITH


HER  GRAPHICS.


LADY  PENNIWIG,  AS  I  CALLED  HER  FOR  ALONG


TIME....HAS  A  HEART  BIGGER  THAN  TEXAS  AND


OKLAHOMA  PUT  TOGETHER..  I  WON'T  EMBARASS


HER  BY  TELLING  ALL  SHE  DOES...BUT  SHE  WAS   


NEEDING  MONEY  HERSELF  WHEN  A  HUGE  MEAT


PACKAGE  WAS  SENT  TO  US.  WE  WERE  NOT  TO  KNOW


BUT  THE  COMPANY  ACCIDENTALLY  LEFT  THE


PAPER  WITH  HER  NAME  ON  IT.


SHE  HELPS  EVERYONE  BUT  A  LOT  OF  US  WERE


HELPING A BOY DYING   FROM  CANCER.  IT  IS  A


VERY  LONG  STORY...HE WAS GIVEN  FAMOUS


GUITARS  FROM  FAMOUS  PEOPLE.  IT  TURNED


OUT  HE  WAS  NOT  EVEN  A  BOY  BUT  WAS  A


HEALTHY  GIRL.  WHEN  SHE  FOUND  OUT  THE


POLICE  WERE  COMING  TO  ARREST  HER,  SHE


DROVE  UP  INTO  THE  HILLS  AND  KILLED  HERSELF.




SHE  SENDS  CARDS  TO  SHUT-INS,  AND  THE


SICK  ALL  OVER  THE  WORLD.



LADY  PENNIWIG , WHEN  I  FOUND  OUT  YOU  WERE  GOING  TO  CLOSE
OLDE  DAME  PENNIWIG,  I  DIDN'T
KNOW  WHAT  TO  DO  AND  I  FELT  SO  SAD.
YOU  HAVE  ALWAYS  BEEN  THERE  TO  JOKE
WITH  ME.  IT  JUST  ANGERS  ME  "YOU"
WOULD  GET  NASTY  COMMENTS.


I  DECIDED  YOU  NEEDED  SOME  LITTLE  GIFTS:





JUST  TO  REMIND  YOU  THAT  YOU  ARE  LOVED.





A  BEAUTIFUL  VIRTUAL  CAKE  FOR  YOU


TO  SHARE  WITH  FAMILY  AND  FRIENDS.






SOME  PRETTY  PINK  BALLOONS











A  HEART  AS  BIG  AS


TEXAS  AND  OKLAHOMA.


THIS  IS  SIMPLY  DEBBIE'S


DOUBLE  HEART  OUTSTANDING


BLOGGER  AWARD.  (IT  IS  THE  SAME


AS  THE  GLODEN  GLOBE  IN  THE 
TELEVESION  WORLD.






I  PRAY  YOU  WILL  ALWAYS  HAVE  A


FRIEND  THAT  MAKES  YOU  LAUGH!










A  BEAUTIFUL  VALENTINE  CARD  FOR  YOU




IF  EVERYONE  THAT  EVER  USED  ONE  OF



YOUR  GRAPHICS, SENT  YOU  A  VALENTINE  YOU   


WOULD  HAVE  BAGS  OF  MAIL





MAY  WE  HAVE  A  DRUM  ROLL  PLEASE


THANK  YOU


HERE  YE  HERE  YE:

OLDE  DAME  PENNIWIG  WILL  BE  CLOSING 


HER  BLOG  OFFICIALLY  ON  SATURDAY.





LADY  PENNIWIG  HAS  DEVELOPED  A  NEW  BLOG;





I  WENT  OVER  AND  LOOKED  AROUND


AND  SIGNED  UP  AS  A  FOLLOWER.....


I  THINK  IT  IS  A  NO  COMMENT  BLOG


BUT  I  AM  LOOKING  FORWARD  TO  


BEING  A  PART  OF  WHATEVER  SHE  DOES.





REMEMBER





IT  EVEN  SOUNDS  LIKE  AN 


AWESOME  PLACE  OR  A   BOOK EDITOR'S,



OFFICE.   YOU  CANNOT  BEGIN  TO  KNOW


THE  RESILENT  TALENTS  OF  THIS


LADY.




SO  REMEMBER  TO  CHECK   IN  ON  HER  AND COME  HERE  TO  CHECK  ON  GRACIE  ANN 


FROM  TIME  TO  TIME,







AS  ALWAYS  GRACIE  ANNE  AND  I  THANK  YOU  FOR  STOPPING  BY  AND


HELPING  US  CELEBRATE  LADY  PENNIWIG.


GRACIE  WAS  SAD  BECAUSE  SHE  DIDN'T  KNOW  WHO  WOULD  MAKE  HER


POLK-A-DOT  CLOTHES  AND  MAYBE  A  POLK-A-DOT  HAT.


THE  FINAL  CHAPTER  IN  YOUR  LAST  BOOK HAS  BEEN  WRITTEN  AND  IT


WILL  BE  SHUT  FOREVER  ON  SATURDAY.



BUT  THEN  THE  NEW  BOOK  IS  OPENED.  HOW  WONDERFUL.


THE  WORLD  IS  YOUR  OYSTER  HOLLY,  AND  THE  PAGES  AWAIT  TO  SMELL


THE  INK.


I  LOVE  YOU  AND  I  AM  HOLDING  TIGHT  TO  MY  DREAM  FOR  YOU  AND


ME  TO  GO  TO  PARIS.

Debbie, I'm all teared up here sweetie, What a beautiful tribute to our Dear Dame whom we have all come to love so much! I will miss her daily rants, and how she made us all laugh, and YES, her heart is HUGE, she is a lovely beautiful lady inside as well as out....I remember when I first started blogging she came to visit, and at first I really thought she was 450 yrs. old as she said...LOL!!! I can't believe anyone would try to take advantage of such a caring, giving person, but you know as well as I , there are always those types in this world! I hope you enjoy your day Debbie and I hope that hubby of yours is staying out of the ornies!!!!

I am so sorry she's closing her blog. That is awful that someone was leaving her mean comments. Why? I don't understand. This was a sweet tribute, Debbie. You're a good friend.

Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours and warm hugs...

XO,

Sheila

Debbie, I, too, was sad to see her close one blog, but... I sure am glad that she's opening another one! I'd be lost without her blog to read! Thank you so much for sharing! Your tribute to her was beautifully done!

Blessings,
~Lynn

I had no clue what was happening with her.
I have not had time to go down my list of fave blogs I follow for awhile.
Was this all because she got bad comments??

Thanks for entering my giveaway.
