ROBERT!!!!! YOU SAID HI TO THE OCEAN FOR ME! YOU REMEMBERED!!!

You are so sweet!!! This is just the nicest thing! Before I read the caption I was admiring the image and noticed that my FAVORITE COLOR is there in the water!!! LAVENDER!!!

This is not only a huge honor but a really, really beautiful picture!

Thank you so much. Now I can come here whenever I really need to see the Ocean again.

You are a dear person...-Laura :)

Ahhhhhhhhhhh........HELLO OCEAN! I CAME TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

And still on the first page! WOW! Lucky me!

Hey! Robert! I replied to your message on the image where the two are dancing in the glass bubble! (I normally always reply to comments just so you know!)

-Laura

(Mind if I stay here a minute and just look at this beautiful Ocean? What beach did you take this from? Seal? Muscle? Malibu? Huntington? We have BPer's in Oceanside! Did you know that?)

Yep. You are right. She does. :) So does Julianne. She is on may of my threads.

Gosh. Strands Beach...Humm...Dana point. I have heard of it. I think...?

Too long ago I suppose. I am from the Bay Area...So I didn't make it down the coast very often.

This really does help me Robert to come here when I miss home. :)

Thank you again. Just think after 5 years you will have the longest BP thread in recorded history!

I'm weary and tattered. I needed to see my ocean image again. Mind if I drag my blanket behind me until I find a good spot to sit? I brought fire wood this time and hot dogs, too. :) I might be staying awhile.

I see we are back on page one! COOL!

Gosh this sunset is making me feel better already.

Thanks so much, Robert.

So nice to come back again.

How have you been Robert? And your mice? I haven't seen a pic of them in a while.

Been gone for another week of camping. I REALLY felt like seeing the ocean again tonight upon our return.

Ahhhhh!!!!!!!!! Thanks Dear Robert!

We had all sorts of nutty weather while gone camping this time. HUGE thunder and lightning storms, then beautiful blue skies...WIND that could knock a person over then calm as could be. VERY strange week! Our CAT got an EYE INFECTION on the trip and his EYE swelled SHUT!!! Had to stop at a VET while hauling truck and 5th Wheel trailer to get him some help! ($90.00 later!) Always fun! Parking on the busy street was the most fun! hehe!

-Laura

P.S. Thanks for always having this image up for me. You are a true friend.

Wow. I wonder why? Our winter lasted 8 months last season. Usually 4-6 is about right. Kitty is still in rough shape. Wearing a cone on his head and NOT happy about it. His eye looks terrible. I hope it's not serious. He's my baby. I have three children, Robert and they are all MALE CATS. I am seriously devoted to them all! :)))

Have a great week!

HEY! You don't have to tell me, Robert. low 40's are COLD!

I am actually getting up to go turn the portable heater on in the back bathroom right now or else the pipes freeze up! HeeHee. LIKE AN OUTHOUSE BACK THERE it's so cold.

YOU STAY WARM! I will, too! :))) Night night! See you at the next beach party on this thread! Until then take good care!

Tap, tap, tap on the mic...Is anyone there?

Hi Robert! I just finished reading your story on Michelle's blog. It was SO VERY FUN and really entertaining. I didn't want it to end!

I am writing one for her blog, too, but it is very long at the moment and in the baby stages. God help me. I have no idea HOW TO CONDENSE.

Anyway, what a wonderful thing to see my beautiful sunset is still on page two and at the top, at that. This is such a fun "Dear Diary" for me. I hope you are well. Robert, it is snowing HUGE flakes here right now. Don't you dare tell me it is 75* there or I will cry! :)))

So sorry for your loss, Laura...my own father crossed over a few years back. We scattered his ashes at sea and I like to think he is still out there in spirit...

Hi Robert. Very sorry to hear you lost your Dad and you know, I keep getting sweet little signs that Dad might still be around in spirit, like your Dad might be too...or maybe my Daddy's Angels are surrounding me at this time?...How are we to ever really know but it's a comfort to feel they live on. Wherever they might be. :) My mom passed in 1985. She was very young. She wanted her ashes spread on her favorite lake and she failed to tell my Dad this. She told me. Then she passed. He wouldn't do it. He wanted to keep the ashes for himself...It upset me for years...but I didn't say anything and I have let it go now. Life is funny, hey? Thanks for sharing. I think I see a little twinkle out at Sea in this image now, and I bet we know who it is! :)
