A Goodbye and Party

With mixed feelings I say goodbye to our special friend, Sassy.

Today, Sassy officially retired from bloggging and stepped down as Executive Producer of Little Production. And although she thought she could go with a simple goodbye, she is getting a surprise party and adventure at the CCSI blog she deserves, and we sure she loves!!

  24. Gracie =^o.o^= says:

    I know you don't do the Thanksgiving thing where you live, though you should anyway just because I hear that the food is great that day. But cannot not let this day go by without letting you all know that I am thankful for your friendship.

    Sending blessings and best wishes to you, your family, and friends this Thanksgiving Day.

  25. Karen Jo says:

    Happy Birthday, Ruis!

  26. Jan's Funny Farm says:

    Hey, Ruis, we came by to wish you a Happy Birthday! Hope it's a good day for you and you get lots of extra treats.

  27. Gracie says:

    Hey Karl, that's me. You don't think I can be a good little kitty.

  28. The Cat Realm says:

    Ruis, it was good to be on an adventure with you again – even if the occasion wasn't the best. I have a feeling as if we might see Sassy again one day – but I know wherever she is she is doing just fine! It's in her nature.
    Big headbutt
    P.S. That last sentence of that little kitty who commented before me really made me laugh, HAHAHAHAAHAAHAHA

  29. Gracie says:

    I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed seeing the photos of the surprise retirement in Paris party you gave Sassy. I was a little sad that I couldn't go on this trip but maybe the next adventure I can come along. I promise to be a good little kitty.

  30. Jan's Funny Farm says:

    A great party. But we're sad Sassy is leaving. We will really miss her adventurous spirit.

  31. Cheysuli and gemini says:

    We were very sad about Sassy leaving. I think the surprise party is very nice!
