OK folks with out further adieu...it's SHOWTIME!!!! I will act as your unoffical Emcee this afternoon....Wait a minute the crowd is going wild....what, what's that??? Oh my goodness, the crowd just declared that they insist I become not only there Mayor but their "offical Emcee" for all events up here. Oh, thank you so much folks...(I love my job!And I love you Mom!) Lil' Joe is standing next to me telling the crowd..."thank you, thank you very much!" Anyways here we go.......Nvwati will sing our anthem...Amazing Grace" along with myself Junior,Killer, and Mac playing the bagpipes! Oh, there's not a dry eye in the crowd, he and the boys did such a wonderful job. Next we have the entire cast on stage to sing ..."Overture,curtains, lights, this is it, the night of night. No more rehearsing or nursing a part. We know all our parts bt heart.Overture, curtain lights, this is it we'll hit the heights...and oh what heights we'll hit...on with the show this is it!" The crowd is so pleased they're hooting and hollering!! Okay first up is non other than Lil'"ELvis" Joe singing a song to his Mom and all the other furry females out there..."Love me tender,love me sweet,Never let me go. You have made my love complete and I love you so..."at the end of his song he walks up to the edge of the stage and throws out 3 scarfs he had around his neck to 3 lovely ladies in the audience. One of the little ladies reaches up and kisses the ring he has on his finger and with that he says..."I'm Elvis honey, not the Pope"...that's our Lil'(Jerry Seinfeld) Joe for you...between the applause and the laughter the crowd just loves him!Next to keep the crowd hopping he have our own "Sweetheart of Rainbow Bridge" Miss Dollie up on stage to do her world famous "Hokey Pokey".....Ok, everyone up on your paws...."you put your right paw in, you take your right paw out, you put your right paw in and you shake it all about...You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around....that's what it's all about!!"

What a beautiful song for a beautiful girl...Now up is Miss Daisy, the crowd goes wild when she walks on, they know she one of the barkery ladies!!!!She's got a white tux jacket on and a white top hat...Oh my goodness she's a magician, "Queen Sheba" is her assistant....She puts her top hat on the table in front of her and out of nowhere appears a white wand, she taps the hat three times and look...she pulls Prissy out of the hat....the crowd is in awe! She passes Prissy to "Queen Sheba" and she puts it down and taps it's bum and off Prissy goes hopping away..next "Queen Sheba" hands Miss Daisy 3 scarfs....Miss Daisy twirls them around in front of her then folds them all up in her hands and undoes them and...look!!!!!

Amber, I'm so sorry about Bobbi. Nvwati will look after her, and will always have someone there to love on him until you can be reunited. You're in my prayers.

11-09-2007 7:59 AM -- By: Amber,    Critters.com memorial:   Nvwati Memorial
Hello all. Just found out a friend of mine passed away. Bobbi was about 45, lived alone and had daily contact with her daughter. When her daughter hadn't heard from her in a few days she called police and they found Bobbi dead in her apt. Autopsy is not done yet but they think it may have been a seizure that killed her. Bobbi always seemed troubled but Nvwati was always able to cheer her up by his loving her and singing with and for her. Bobbi and I drummed and sang at a Pow wow A few years ago. I will be busy next few days helping to organize her Funeral, Feast and drumming for her Spirits journey. I KNOW Nvwati met her at the bridge.... and I was unable to contact her when he passed away so I know she will be pleasantly surprised to see an old friend there to greet her.

Oh Lil Joe's Mommy don't worry. He was just a bit confuzed cuz there is sooooo much to do up here. He says to tell you that he isn't going to be tinker bell in the holiday pageant! He is just the friendliest lil guy I tell ya. He sits still to practice all the time and every critter just loves him to bits. Ahhhhhhhhhh now I see why he had a part blue eye. How amazing was that!!! AHoooooooooo ( off to catch a few zzzzzzzz's as I worked the night shift greeting new critters and I am tired )

11-08-2007 10:29 PM -- By: Lil Joe's Mommy,    Critters.com memorial:   Lil Joe Memorial
Oh Lil Joe you don't want to be tinker bell, I'm glad they talked you out of that... Sing your little heart out for your mommy, I know you'll do great, I always loved to hear you and your brother and sister sing. I miss you so much.. I look for your star everynight sweetie to see wear you are playing at, I hate cloudy nights. But I'm so thankful that you have so many wonderful friends, I hear you have competion for the candy canes, Christmas is going to be so hard for me and your daddy this year, but we will make the best of it for you sweetie and for your sister and brother. Your Sister has to go to your Dr. Sat. to do blood work so make sure you are with us baby, mommy can't handle any bad news, but we are only thinking about you and I want you to sing your little heart out and make us proud... My Lil Joe was 1/2 border Collie and 1/2 Australian Shepherd that is where he gets the 1/2 blue eye and it was such a pretty eye, both eyes would just make mommy melt.. Well kids keep up all the good work and sing and dance all night. Love you all, and hugs to you all.. Joeys' Mommy Love you Sweetie.XOXOXOXOXO

Thank you so, so much to the angel who helped send me a message from Sheba. It brought tears to my eyes because it was so sweet. Sheba would love to be in any pageants, shows, etc. She loved to show off! If anyone would like to see something pretty, I just added a bunch more pictures of her.

11-08-2007 12:18 PM -- By: jennifer,    Critters.com memorial:   Fergi Memorial
Fergi would love to be in the Hoilday Pageant! She (like Daisy) my get side tracked by whats ON the Christmas tree. She has been known to knock off bulbs to play with them and occasionaly chew at the lights. Her favorite is to nap under the tree. Hopefully with the help of all her new friends she will focus on the pageant. Ferg Butt tends to have that wild child come out at times!!! :) Looking forward in hearing about all the fun events coming up!! Hope everyone is doing well!!! Fergi's Mama

I'd like to thank all those of you that have responded and left messages for me in this time of personal pain. I appreciate all that you have said and its in some small way a comfort to know that there are others who are experiencing pain and loss as well as I. What I mean is, that I am not alone with my feelings. Often people don't understand how you can be so attached to just a "animal". But when they have been a important part of your life it is a profound experience that you often feel alone and isolated with. God bless and keep you all and may you all find joy and comfort in the memories of your beloved pets..memories that help sustain you until we cross over the short bridge that seperates us now.

11-08-2007 9:35 AM -- By: mommy,    Critters.com memorial:   daisy Memorial

Mayor Ted and Lil Joe ( who is being very focused by the way!) are busy lil critters I tell ya. Bless Lil Joe's heart... he wants to be TINKER BELL of all things at the Pageant but Mayor Ted helped me convince him that Tinker Bell is in Peter Pan and not Holiday Pageant! By the way Lil Joe I notice you have one blue eye. Do you have some husky in you? Yukon has one blue eye and one amber eye. Striking with two different colours of eyes.

11-08-2007 8:27 AM -- By: Nvwati,    Critters.com memorial:   Nvwati Memorial
Oh Gypsy Rose . You are one very talented lil gal but I saw another talent in you that will be put to good use at our Pageant! Shhhh it's a surprise though ok? Ahooooo

Mayor Ted you are a blessing, I know my Lil Joe can get side tracked, so I'm hoping he will sing something beautiful for you all, and twinkle that beautiful blue for you all, that I miss so so much but I can see him everynight in my dreams happy as can be with you all. Bless each and everyone of you..... Especially since Ive been under the weather.. I haven't stopped thinking about any of you. You are my life line, I thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for making me smile.....
