Happy New Year to all:


As we start yet another new year,

Wondering what lies in store.

I wish you luck and happiness,

Now and forever more.


For me it will be a year of hope,

As the past few years could have been better,

The loss of my son five years ago,

Was then the onset of reading a "Bad Letter".


Then came the pandemic of course,

Which everyone suffered in life.

Not a good time I agree,

Myself suffering much strife.


Once I've had my eye operation,

I can resume blogging regulary once again.

I have to keep renewed hope in my heart,

To smile through sunshine and rain.

Just a post to wish you all

A Happy HealthyNew Year.

May it be free from problems

Also free from fear.


I am still awaiting surgery to my eye,

But will return when it's complete/

Can't wait to start blogging again

Amd get nack on my feet.




Please excuse spelling mistakes.

Me pictuyed above with my Danny Boy,

Am writing to inform you in life is not much joy.

So until I've had the surgery on my blurry eyes.

Will refrain from blogging until I can see "Blue Skies"



Take care to all my friends.

Today my thoughts went back to Nasville,

When I went to a concert by Danny Boy.

It was a wonderful experience I can relate,

Filling my heart with joy.


Above is a pic of me on "Centre Stage",

At the Grand Ole Opry

Saw many photo's of "Counrty Great",

Wonderful is all I can say.


That#s how I got the name of Nashville Cat,

For my own personal blog.

Of late have had problems,

Finding writing one hard slog.


But I have to try and take that "First Step"

To get back on line.

Hope all is doing well,

Feeling healthy, happy and fine.

Above is a photo of myself,

Son and his wife.

Taken years ago in Spain,

Where my son resided many years of life.


Today I think of all the happy times,

I shared with them there.

Rather poignant memories,

Five years today he passed away I declare.


Today I visted the sea,

Looking at the oncoming tide,

Memories buzzing around in my mind,

My sorrow I couldn't hide.


I will return to blogging soon,

Regulary I may add.

I'm still awaiting my eye operations,

Long waiting list...... oh so sad.


Have a peaceful and happy Sunday,

Hope all is well with you.

There are many changes on my pc for blogging,

Which I will have to review.

As I at last write on line.

Sadness hits the ground.

Above is a photo of my son John.

Who on this earth is no longer around.


He would have been 55 yrs old today,

A fine son , yes indeed.

A text or a phone call.

Would certainly fit my needs.


John passed away five years ago.

Just 9 days after his birthday.

It was the onset of my life changing

In all so many ways.


Yes! October for me is a sad month.

I hope for you it's full of happiness and joy.

Today I pay a tribute to a son

As I say "Goodnight to my John boy"

Today we say farewell to June,

Another month all dusted and done.

Hopefully it has been a good month

You having plenty of fun.


It is June I've started to return  to things,

That for a long while I couldn't cope.

But taking that first step forward.

After I summoned up enough hope.


Tomorrow we begin July,

Next week celebrations are due.

I also have a celebration on the 4th.

As well as all of you.


Have a great weekend.

Thinking of next week I'm sure.

With weather to compliament each day.

Who could ask for anything more.
