Happy Birthday, Maisie

"Auntie Reg said I could eat some of your cake."

"She absolutely did not say that."

(She probably did ;-)

"It's MY birthday!"

"That darn cat."

11 years old.  Wow.  It seems like only a few years ago she was just a tiny baby...but also seems like she's been here forever.  

I wanted to look back to see when we first started making her a birthday crown.  A fun way to do that is to follow the drop down date menu on the right hand side of the blog screen.  Select the year and then "November" and her birthday parties are always titled in a way that you know you are at the right place.

It's fun...and a bit see all the old parties and party guests.  It's also kind of sad to see all the comments from readers over the years.  One year 90 people wished Maisie a Happy Birthday!  I wish blogging and reading blogs was still as popular as "the good old days". 

Back to the party! 

We kept Jared away from the cake as long as we could.  Of course Short Round followed him out.  Maisie had had enough "cake" by then anyway.  Everyone else joined a few minutes later and another crazy Maisie birthday party is in the books.

The years do go buy fast and watching your loved ones grow up is a visible sign of the changes. Has it really been that long? Very sad that the blog viewers and the blog makers are drifting away. Thank you for your stories, your sheep, your farm and your wonderful posts.

Yikes, the years do fly by! Happy Birthday, Maisie!! When I look at my blog's stats, it always amazes me to see over a hundred visits but only a mere handful of commenters. Is my blog throwing up snags to commenting, or can people just not be bothered?

Happy Birthday, Maisie!!! I think I started following your blog around the time that Maisie was your bottle lamb.🤔 I love reading blogs, and I was not aware that blogging has lost readers...😑 Youtube , I think has attracted a lot of followers, and Tiktok. Although I do love YouTube sites that follow people in other parts of the world, etc., there is nothing like a good story teller/writer. I think we are losing those... I love your blog and cannot tell you the pleasure it has given me, sometimes in very dark hours. Give that danger lamb a hug for me.😊 K. Littrell
