She slaughters our language. Her 'puter has given up the ghost a couple of times. Just can't keep up with her disregard for all the red thingy's, even when the poor thing's trying mightily to present a reasonable-looking document. She doesn't care about fine new things. But give her a bunch of old torn jeans, and you'd think you'd unlocked heaven for the woman. She'll prolly set to with voracious glee, ripping, cutting, yanking a large needle through them with a pair of pliers. Out of those tattered things a beautiful quilt will emerge. It won't be for her - just for someone she loves. She loves a lotta folks. We go together like peas 'n carrots, this friend and I. Our interests mesh, although she has her horses, and I have my ocean. But we both have gardens, and their pests. And we understand each other so much it seems a cryin' shame we've not yet met. Love you, party animal! Oh yes, she's @crazyhorseladycx.

She is definitely one of a kind, a one-off. It's not so easy to carve out your own spot in the world of internet social writing but she's definitely recognizable everywhere she turns up. What a nice tribute to her that you've written. Only a truly decent person could inspire such praise from a friend.

Anja - I try not to praise her, because she's Likely not to be able to get her head through the doorway, but it doesn't work! She knows she's very high on my list of favorite people in this world!

Simone - thanks for the compliment! I'm looking forward to meeting her in person one of these days. I'm hoping the weather will be good, as I'm a bit nervous of the storms in her area. It would really be good if we could sit in her sanctuary, but I don't really mind, as we could be cosy inside too. She could do her quilting, and I'll do my knitting. And of course we'd be talking and laughing a lot too.

Oh well! I found her unique too. She did say something about her language. I told her she is unique and I like her that way.

allknowing - she is unique, in a lovely way. She's also very used to me teasing her, and I wouldn't like her half as much if I didn't love her fantastic sense of humor!

@allknowing She always does, don't worry, but she's a busy gal too, and has lots of farm chores to do! Those horses take a lot of work and time, but she adores them.

Brilliant...what a lovely thing to do... great tribute ...I half guessed from the title who it was.... She is a lovely lady, and has not much idea of how many people's lives she's touched, and how many people love her from across many miles....
