Eric's Day Flashback and our 2000th Post.

Today is not just Eric's Day Flashback but is also our 2000th post. We wish he was still here to share it.
You can look back at our first posts with these links to our original blog.
This is the first ever post on July 20th 2006 and Eric introduced us to all our future friends.
This is the link to our second ever post and the first post with photos.

Now for Eric's Flashback.
This post is from January 2007 and was hard to repost but feels appropriate. It is called:
My Three Loves by Eric.

 


I love my brother Flynn. He's good for snuggling with.
And when we are outdoors he catches mice and gives them to me.


I love my dad because he's good for snuggling with too.


He doesn't even mind too much when I knead his head.
But he likes it better when I just cuddle him like this.


And of course I love Rosie, and I love snuggling with her.

What a fabulous number of posts from you, Eric and I love every one that I have had the pleasure of reading since I came to know you. Seeing you cuddling Flynn and your dad just melted mom's heart. I love you Eric and I love Flynn too. And Flynn, come over..you are an hoary Tuxie any time you want to come over and crunch lady bugs and we DO still have them outside. xoxoxox

Concatulations on your 2000th post! That is quite an accomplishment. I looked back at your two original posts and... it's kind of sad to see so many kitties who are no longer blogging.

Congratualtions! 2000 is a total milestone. Yours was one of the first blogs we read, and as pikku pentu, I would admire you two guys and your mousing skills in the fields of England. Thank you, for so much that you have given.
We know you miss Eric more than any words can say, but we need to say how glad we are that this blog has continued, and that his spirit lives on. Much respect Flynn, the Big F!

Karen Jo said...

Hearty congratulations on 2000 posts! That's quite an accomplishment. Eric's three loves are great and I liked the bit about kneading Dad's head. I have done that to Mom, but only to get her up for breakfast.
