Barney and Dick's ring

                      

 

File manager won't let me load any pictures into my Journal when I clicked on 'add pictures' it did not work ~ and I could not change the colour of my text but heyho !!! I don't think I am the only one having problems ~

Did manage to copy and paste some pictures though

Barney is back to being fighting fit

Can't resist those eyes

This is a picture of a ring I bought Dick many years ago he used to wear it on his little finger ~ I gave it to Lyn but just recently she wanted to pass it on to Tom ~ she had to have it resized as it was too small for Tom's finger ~ She picked it up from the Jeweller's last week and Tom was thrilled to have his Grandad's ring ~ I was so pleased to see him wearing it ~ must admit I did have a little tear remembering how proud Dick was wearing it

What a nice touch...to pass down a family heirloom. That's a beautiful ring.  Barney looks great, very alert and maybe asking for a kibble?  So far I haven't had an trouble with my journal but I have in the past so I know it can happen.  Have a good rest of your Tuesday...Linda in cold (34 degrees) Washington state

Hiya Ally, oh little Barney is so sweet and is looking good.  I am glad he is better now.  I am sure Tom will treasure his grandfather's ring always, what a lovely thing it is that he is also enjoying it although I realise it is a bittersweet memory for you.  Its a lovely ring, really interesting.  Hugs.  Terry x

I'm glad Barney's well again, he must stop frightening us like that! It must be lovely to see Tom wearing Dick's ring even though it brings back memories of Dick. I bet they're all good ones though! Jeannette xx  

plieck30 said...

I don't which is prettiest Barney or the ring. Guess they are both just as pretty. Nice your grandson could have it. Paula

faveanti said...

I agree Ally, those eyes.  Who can resist?  My mum gave our late dad's wedding ring to my sister and I.  We had it made into 2 little rings, which we each wear.  I was devstated the other week when I thought mine had gone down the plughole.  It hadn't! love, Angie x

nedmoh said...

sarajanesmiles said...

Aww, so glad that Barney is all better, he's such a cutie isn't he.
Ruff ruff ruff, says Buddy :o)
I know how much I love the things that have been passed down to me from my Grandparents and Great Grandparents, they are my most treasured posessions, so I imagine that Tom is delighted to have his Grandad's ring.

lindachapmanuk said...

I am glad to see Barney is back to himself again, poor little thing, he had a rough time...You must have been very touched by Tom wearing his grandads ring, Dick would have loved that Im sure! I think that is lovely...Linda xx

Ally
Great pics of Barney, yes, he looks his old self once again.  Sorry you are having trouble with AOL Journals, but there were many having problems with their journals this week.  You were clever to figure out how to insert your pictures in spite the problems.

Dick's ring is very pretty and I can imagine how proud Tom is to have it.  I inherited my grandfather's rings and always felt close to him on the occasions I had to wear them.  They were kind of formal, so I didn't wear them daily.  I can imagine how you feel when you see Tom wearing it.

I love the pictures of Barney! Let's make a trade - - I'll send you my cat Scratch. The ring is also very beautiful, I'm sure it has many sentimental memories.
Rest assured, you're not the only one having trouble adding pictures to your journal. Those Evil Blog Gremlins are after us all!!!       Jon

Dear Ally :)
I haven't been over to your blog in quite some time, and am always filled with wonder when I do. Such lovely and heartfelt stories and pictures, as well as wonderful graphics. I am partial to cats, but any animal that looks as sweet as Barney really does make my heart melt.
Sincerely, Rose ~*
