Upcoming Event -Hugs From Around the World Day

Dear Blogville,

As many of you know The Three Little Pugs, Stella Rose, Margaret Mae, and Angus McConnell's dad, Butch, was seriously hurt in a work accident a week and a half ago. Since I heard the news, I have wanted to jump in my car and give Deb and Butch big hugs. Unfortunately, the hundreds of miles between us made this impossible. So I had an idea to host a blog hop for them.

As I have never organized such a thing, I reached out to the Blogville Mayorz Murphy and Stanley to help me with this. They jumped on it, helped me reach out to some other bloggers, and in less than an hour, those they reached out to were on board.

What we are asking is that on Thursday, October 22nd, to show our love and support for Butch, Deb and their family, we will ask you to post a hug. There are no rules or guidelines to what your hug looks like. We just ask for a hug from your corner of the world.

As the family is dealing with a lot, and to make sure that they see all the hugs, please link your blog to the blog hop over at Oz's.  (Thank you Oz for helping with this).

Please feel free to share this information and the badge, that was lovingly created by Dory and her momma with others in Blogville.




If you have questions, please feel free to email us at leeandphodATbellDOTnet.

Thank you to those who have helped organize this (you ladies rock) and thanks in advance for your participation.

Hailey, Zaphod and their Lady

  14. Tears. Mom was thinking the other night about your dream that you shared with her, and then she remembered that Chinese proverb about when you save some one you are responsible for them in their lifetime. Maybe your dream was telling you something, ........we are rambling now......all I know that next year in june when we get to actually hug each other, and sit down together, it will be very hard to let go.
