The rainbow. Please excuse my wiper blade. Had to take it quickly as there were cars behind me waiting to exit the parking lot.
I took this pictures several times and each time it came out the same with that heavenly glow behind her head. Reflection from the window? Maybe but I chose to think differently.
So very sorry to learn of her passing. She was a great part of PT and will be missed.
I love we can see a second faint rainbow! Was it more noticeable in real life?

Rascal was a huge, sturdy cat.
He loved to be touched and he had a funny habit of drooling all over if you just sat their and scritched him.
He ended up in my lap one and I absent-mindedly began to scratch him as he sat there.
A few minutes later I felt a warm spot on my thigh and, to my surprise, saw that he drooled a puddle on my jeans.
I laughed and pointed this out to Gini.
She jumped up out of the chair she was in, picked up Rascal and began to apologize profusely about the mess.
I laughed - it was only cat spit, but she acted like the cat had crapped on me. :D
It was then that I knew she was a devoted animal lover. She treated the incident as if it was her own child that had brought shame upon the "House of Orange".
To this day, whenever I play with an animal that just so happens to salivate on me, I laugh and think of Rascal and Gini........
Whenever I crack eggs to fry I always think of Mz Gini.
During one of the Cali BBQs we'd all pitch in to make a meal during the lulls in the action.
The kitchen was alive with people and I was at the 'egg station', cracking and frying......I picked up an egg and proceeded to crack it - one handed.
Gini saw that and made a HUGE deal about it.
"YOU CAN CRACK AN EGG WITH ONE HAND!"
I don't know if she was shocked, impressed or just plain stunned. I laughed and told her that it was nothing, but every time I do fry up and egg and open it one handed, I think of that moment.
Dear Mz Gini:
You know how fascinated I was with all the palm trees down there???
I've just ordered this
http://www.homehardware.ca/en/cat/se...N?Ntt=5656-058 in your honour and will have it lit up on my deck permanently. Her name shall be Virginia.
love you lots
other me xoxo
Awww, how perfect! :)
"Yes, Virginia, there is a palm tree! And it is you!"
I haven't been on in a while, so sad to see this. RIP Gini you will be missed.
Has there been any word on Gini's Emma and Annie finding homes? I can't find the thread. :love:
LOl, Palm trees........
When I call friends my standard greeting is "Hey You!".
I'd call her and she'd answer in her business voice, "Hello?"
I'd say, "Hey you!" and immediately she'd repeat my greeting back with a very hearty laugh....That was worth making the phone call.
I swear that you could call that woman and within 5 minutes you have forgotten what you originally called for.:love:
When I went to Walmart this morning I saw tons of Peeps!!! I can not nor ever will be able to look at them from now on without thinking of our sweet friend, Gini!!! I still get tears in my eyes but have to smile too. I think she would laugh at the idea of a Peep reminding me of her. :D :love:
