Today, we are participating in a VERY special blog hop to honor our dear friend, Sammy, One Spoiled Cat.
For those of you who aren’t bloggers (or aren’t familiar with Sam’s blog), Sammy is a senior kitty (nearly SEVENTEEN!), who has been blogging for several years. Recently he began having some serious health issues. All of us in the blogging world who know Sammy and his mom, Pam, just love them. They have fans – really – all over the world. And we all wanted to show them just how much they mean to us. After all, Sammy is Sundae’s “boycatfriend”.
Sammy’s blogging friends, Madi and Easy, are responsible for this wonderful idea. Sadly (and suddenly), Easy passed over Rainbow Bridge earlier this week, and his blogging friends are devastated and in shock. But his Mom knew Easy would want this blog hop to take place as planned. Rest easy, Easy, we are carrying out your wishes.
So, today, we are to share a photo of a place in our neighborhood/city or state that we think Sammy would like to visit. This is a different take on Sammy’s famous “Tuesday Teaser”. Each Tuesday, Sammy and his mom post a photo -taken somewhere in the world – for his fans to try to identify.
We, of course, chose Bacon’s Castle. Those of you who are familiar with my blog already know all about it. But, since there may be some new visitors today for this special occasion, here’s a short paragraph to describe it:
Bacon’s Castle is located in Surry County, Virginia, and was built in 1665. It is the oldest datable English built brick home in the U.S. My mother, along with her family, lived in the house during her teen years when it was a private residence. It’s now open to the public, and my son, Marshall, was a guide there for several years. Motor Man and I were married there in 2002.
And it seems especially appropriate since, as all of Sammy’s friends know, he does love his bacon.
So, Sammy, Sundae says: “Let’s you and I hop in our hot air balloon and enjoy a slow, leisurely ride to “the Castle” and I’ll show you around this beautiful old place that means so much to my mommy.
Thank you for always being such a wonderful gentleman friend, Sammy. You know you have my heart.”
