RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Martyn it looks as if you are continuing the life of a provider to the fur babies. Older dogs really do perk up when a younger ones comes into the home. The puppy will be a comfort to all and will learn from your older one. Old Fella and Levi were a help in training the puppies and even the adult dogs that passed through our home. In all the years we were involved in the rescue effort we never had a problem with them getting along. Claire was one that was stubborn and would sometimes cause problems but she would whip back in shape with a little correction. I hope all is well with everyone and the weather doesn't cause too much of a problem with you who are caught in the main stream of the storm. We are still enjoying nice weather. Yesterday was a bit chilly as it didn't warm up as expected but stayed in the upper 40's with a stiff cold wind blowing out of the North East which made it feel colder. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

Gosh Gary, I hope things get better for you and the fur gang. I know Lily isn't going to get better but I hope she had some good days before she starts the down hill drop. Watching the weather map for the North East this really look bad as far as the weather is concerned.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. I was watching a video that was in the camera from last year during the February 11th big snow and there was Mama outside with the rest of the fur gang doing her best to keep up. Lily from next door was running through the snow with her short little legs as Suzie chased her. So far we haven't had any snow but we may not be out of the woods yet as we still have plenty of time to have some. Watching the video made me sad that Mama is not with us, I miss her a lot. The bad weather is north of us along the Tennessee, North Carolina boarder so we have been spared the cold and still enjoying day time temps in the mid 50's. Sue is doing fine staying busy with her business. Yesterday I went with her to the warehouse to help get a shipment ready to go. She is a hard worker as is Ave. Together they receive the shipments coming in, inspect them and get them ready for shipment back out. The ware house is not heated so it can get very cold in there and in the summer there is no A/C so it can get very hot. The 72 Lincoln has become our number one car for the week as I am having Sue's car refreshed on the exterior. After eight years it needs some attention to keep its appearance looking good. The interior is nice and clean and the mechanical parts work well at 72,000 miles so we are getting it ready for another eight years of service. The fur gang is doing well. Peaches amazes me at how well she does at her age. She is happy, gets around very good. Her eyesight is failing as is her hearing, but she manages very well as long as I keep her close to me so she can hear and see me. Yesterday I went out to the mailbox and Hobo went with me. When I came back inside the house I forgot Hobo was outside. About an hour later Scott from next door brought Hobo home and asked if I knew she was out. She had been next door playing with Lily and enjoying her time out without supervision. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure and give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Looks like another beautiful day coming our way. The fur gang is fine waiting on me for a walk. Yesterday was quiet and restful as we enjoyed the family all being home. Allison got home from Germany safely and she really had a good time. Yesterday was a good day at church as Dr. Bob was back in the pulpit after being away for a week. Sue and I spent the day just relaxing, reading and walking with the girls. Gary I hope all is well with Lily. Dan and Lori we are getting ready for your visit. I have been talking to Suzie explaining that her sister is coming for a visit. When I look at Suzie and Anna playing together I am thankful they have this opportunity to see each other. I will never forget when they were puppies how they would play in the back yard at the house in Waynesboro. What a wonderful gift they are to us. Suzie is such a clown and I love the way she tries to talk to me tossing her head from side to side as she gives me this low guttural sound with that bark of excitement of something is going on that I should know about. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. According to the weather forecast we don't have a major storm system coming our way this week. So we will have some nice weather all week with high's in the mid fifty's and lows in the mid thirty's with no rain. The girls are fine this morning after enjoying their breakfast. Izzie is still asleep in the recliner. Peaches is doing okay for a fur baby that is fourteen years old. I am glad she is doing so well in her golden years and can enjoy being at a time and place where she can relax and take it easy without being sick all the time. She has gotten to the point she wants attention and will get into my lap more often. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug and tell someone you love them. PS. If you can please remember the Old Fella Rescue with a gift, they need all the help they can get right now.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. No snow nor ice, just cold rain all day yesterday and last night. The fire in the fireplace felt good and made things nice and cozy. The girls did get outside between rain showers yesterday and last night just before bed time. Allison got home last night from Germany where she spent time with son and his new wife. She had her hair in a bun and at one of the airports they searched her hair. I guess they have to do what they have to do to keep folks safe. January is just about gone and when February has come and gone we will have spring. So looking forward to the end of winter. The only thing that saves winter for me is Thanksgiving and Christmas. When you get to be my age your thinking changes about tomorrow. I long for the holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas but with a careful eye as I don't know if I will see them or what kind of health I will be in. I am grateful for the life I have and the health I am in and also the family and friends God has given me. So I will live each day as a stepping stone to the next one God gives me until my stepping stones lead to Heaven's gates. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing you a blessed day, Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. The weather didn't get as cold as predicted so we are well above freezing this morning so we are getting rain. The girls went outside this morning and came right back in. They don't care for the rain so there is not hesitation on their part to get back inside where it is nice and dry as well as warm. Dan I didn't get the picture you mentioned. I posted an email I got from the Old fella rescue in hopes they might get some help in their effort to save as many animals as possible. They are doing a great job in helping the abandon pets in Burke County and deserve all the help they can get. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hiubg for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

PLEASE CONSIDER A DONATION TO OLD FELLA? Please consider a donation to Old Fella. 220 animals from Burke County went on transport in 2014 to NEAS in Salem, Ma. It would have been a higher number, but there was a pause in animals that Neas was able to accept. They were anxious for more but we had to wait. Just since the first of December, 78 animals have been transported to NEAS and have found their wonderful forever homes. This was per 3 transports, that were 3 weeks a part. Animals are currently getting vetted for an up coming transport in February. Neas wants as many as we can send, but unfortunately it does take donations to pay for the vet bills that are incurred.. Fosters are also desperately needed. I currently have 10 five week old puppies at my house, that need vetting before they can leave Burke county. Of the previous 78 that went, I fostered 34 of them. So needless to say, I am desperate in more ways than one. I so want to continue helping animals but the burnout is getting tremendous. Right now, We also have 2 heart worm positive dogs that have been accepted by Neas but must be treated before they can go. One of our previous Heart worm positive dogs Chewie, just went to Neas on 1/16/15. We have had many, that were positive but were treated by your donations and have now found their forever families. Chewie was found at a dumpster with an embedded collar. These animals are beautiful after they have received care and hope. There are so many in desperate need in Burke County. Here are just a FEW of the animals saved by Old Fella. I received an email recently from an adopter at Neas, she said they embrace the mixed breed. The emails I receive include pictures with wonderfully happy endings from people who adopt our animals up North. All of this made possible because of your tax deductible donations. Please consider helping. No amount is too little. WE MAY NOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT FOR THAT ONE ANIMAL, THEIR WORLD IS FOREVER CHANGED!!!! Thank-you, Margie Old Fella PO Box 1437 Waynesboro, Georgia 30830

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Well it was bound to happen. The weather is suppose to turn nasty about four in the morning with snow and ice turning to rain and then tomorrow night there will be a mixed bag of rain, snow and ice. So I have plenty of fire wood for a nice warm cozy fire tomorrow while I sit in my easy chair and watch whatever comes from the sky. The girls are fine. Suzie is asleep on our bed while Hobo is asleep in her crate and Peaches is waiting for me to settle down so she can get into my lap. Izzie is already in Sue's lap while she is reading a book. The Lincoln Motor Company is very interested in the story behind the 72 Lincoln. Emails have been going back and forth since yesterday and right now there is a possibility of a Television commercial concerning the car and its history with Arnold Palmer and the Augusta Masters Golf Tournament. I don't know where this may lead but for now it is exciting just to imagine seeing the car in a commercial.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is another beautiful morning here in the Deep South. The girls and I just got back from our walk. Lily joined us as usual and kept Suzie company. Hobo acted as if she didn't feel good and lagged behind us. On the way back home I waited for her to catch up and encouraged her and she perked up some and walked with me the rest of the way home. I hope everyone has a blessed day and be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is a beautiful morning here in the Deep South at the foot hills of the Smoky Mountains. Yesterday was a most gorgeous day with lots and lots of sunshine and temps in the upper 60's. The girls loved it and spent time outdoors. When we went for a walk in the afternoon I discovered the beavers had come back and taken down some small trees. The mystery is where the den they have been building is. I cannot find it anywhere in the pond so it must be in the spill way behind the dam. However that is a long way from where they are cutting the tress, so why not cut the trees closer to where the den is located? I guess I need to do some exploring to find the answer. Today I need to haul fire wood up on the porch so that I will have dry wood when the rains come Friday. Friday the high will be forty with rain so it will be a good day to sit by the fire and enjoy the family. I hope everyone is okay and you are having a great morning. I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing you a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Old Fella lost a great person in Janice Boswell Sunday. She was a hard worker and loved animals. She gave a lot to the Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue so she will be missed. She had been sick for a while and then got an infection that took her life. Hopefully Rainbow Bridge saw a brighter day when she arrived to greet those she helped in this life. I feel better today compared to yesterday. The girls are fine, just eaten their breakfast they are satisfied right now waiting on me to take them for a walk. Sunday we had a young lady in church that just lost her husband to cancer. They had been married for two years, much of that time Tim was sick. She had her ups and downs and doubts about God as to why Tim, who was such a loving and giving person should die so young. Heart broken isn't enough to describe her condition. Lost and hurting could be used to describe her, but even that isn't enough. I watched her cry during the service trying to find comfort somewhere in God's word and in the company of believers. After the service was over the people gathered around her and showed their compassion and heartfelt sorrow for her. The sermon was for her as I knew she would be there. The The Anchor Holds was the topic, a song written by Ray Boltz which describes how the Anchor, which is God, holds on to us during the storms of life. I remembered the death of my son December 23, 1964 and how I questioned God for taking a child who was so innocent and without spot or blemish. But during that time I found comfort in the church and a great pastor helped my wife and I though those troubled days. The da of my son's funeral my neighbor, Colonel James R. Newman died suddenly at his home. His wife called me on the phone as we were in Waynesboro with my parents to tell me of his death and saying she felt our sorrow in losing a child, so not to hurry home to face another death. Her thoughts were not for herself. but for us. What a great woman of faith she was and I will always remember her as the lady who thought of others before herself. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Sue went over to Ava's house and picked up Fergie the little female Boxer. She has brought a lot of excitement to the house as Suzie takes her position that this is her territory and you better behave. Well Fergie has pulled Suzie into the party of roust about. Lily came over so we put Fergie and Lily in the back yard together. When Fergie is worm down she will come back into the house. It is going to be a nice day today with a high in the 60's. There will be plenty of sunshine to go along with the day so it will be warm. Yesterday was a good day at church, Sue and I enjoyed it very much. Today I need to go get some fire wood if I feel like it. My stomach is acting up and I can't get too far from the toilet. I found another Lincoln in Mauldin that is a one owner with 60,000 miles on it that needs some work to make it a nice car. It is a 1973 that has been repainted, but a nice job. There is some problems with the power windows and antenna switch along with some moldings being damaged on the doors inside. There is just enough wrong to make me back off from buying it as I have enough with the 72 Lincoln keeping it in good condition. Someone said it would be like being married to two women trying to keep them both satisfied, well that isn't going to happen. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure and give the fur babies a hug and be sure to tell someone you love them.

Gary I am sorry to hear about Lily. This is not easy I know from experience. Give her all the love and attention you can for what time she has left as I know you will. She is lucky to have you.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. When I was so involved in the Old Fella Rescue effort there were some dogs that really got to me. Some were so hungry for love and attention and there were those who were too shy to even look at you. I will never forget Charlie. He was such a love sponge and the way he made sure I took him home was so touching. I hated it when I found out he had bone cancer. However the last three months of his life were so wonderful as he traveled with us and found his place in our home and our hearts along with the other fur babies. Today will be busy as I preach this morning at Church and watch out for things as Dr. Bob and his wife Judy are on a cruise. Thank God for Ernie, my friend and sidekick. He has been such a help to me in the Deacon Ministry. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for ma and tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is a beautiful morning here in the Deep South. Today we will see temps in the high 50's and by Tuesday we will be toasty warm at almost 70 degrees. The girls are fine this morning, enjoying the warmer weather. Last night Sue and I went out for a night on the town. We went to a restaurant in Piedmont called Saluda Grille which is on the river inside a remodeled old mill. It is very nice and has a rustic look yet very elegant. We went in the 72 Lincoln just to give it a chance to show off its classic style. Peaches turns fourteen years old this year, sometime in March we think. Izzie turns fourteen years old in May. Both of them are doing great for their age. Izzie doesn't have any white on him at all even around his face, while Peaches is showing her age. Suzie turns nine in June and Hobo, well we don't know how old she is but guessing we think she is about seven or eight. Okay I hope everyone has a blessed day, be sure and give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I was outside working with some polish. The polish was liquid in a squeeze bottle. I guess the bottle was too cold to work with so when I squeezed it to get polish out it exploded all over me and the tailgate on the truck. The polish on the tailgate was easy to get off, however the polish on me was a different story. It didn't make me look any better after I got it off, nope no shine at all....

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Today is supposed to be a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine and 55 degrees. The girls are fine, waiting on me for a walk. Last night we had a very nice evening with a cozy fire in the fire place, the girls lying around sleeping and Izzie on Sue's lap while she read a book. Yesterday I was in the company of a man who restores automobiles and also goes to the Barrett Jackson auctions. He lives here in the Upstate, small world isn't it? Anyway he looked at the 72 Lincoln and read some of the history from articles I have saved and watched the Fox News report segment. His comment was, "priceless". Of course the car is worth more to me than anyone else, but he seemed to think the car was worth a small fortune. I guess we will never know exactly what the value is because I will never sell it and you will never know what something is worth until someone buys and pays for it. We missed the RV show this past weekend in Greenville, first one I have missed since we have been here. There is always some exciting things to see at the show as the new models are out for folks to see and dream about. As I get older and my limitations are realized, it slows me down a lot about taking on new debt. Okay I hope everyone has a blessed day, be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me andtell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Wednesday in the Waynesboro True Citizen Newspaper the front page story was about a man who was arrested for starving six hunting dogs to death. They lived without food and water while he watched them die one by one. What a horrible thing to do and I hope the judge who tries this case gives him punishment that is equal to his crime.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. No ice this morning as the temperature was above freezing at 34 degrees. It is wet and misty, but that is supposed to go away by mid day. The girls are fine after eating breakfast. Izzie is somewhere sleeping. I took my mobile phone to Verizon and got rid of the virus but in the process I lost all my personal information and pictures, so I have to start over with that. I couldn't remember my g-mail address and pass word so now that I have that information I have to go back to have that installed. This Sunday I am preaching in the morning worship service and Sue will bring the children's sermon. The special music will be "The Anchor Holds," sung by two talented men of the church. I am excited about Sunday and looking forward to the service. Last night we had our Tuesday night Men's meeting studying the bible and learning to know God's Will in our lives. Great study and an in-depth look at how to apply God's word to our daily lives. I have an appointment to have the F350 serviced this morning so I need to get moving. Give the fur babies a hung for me and be sure today to tell someone you love them.
