She spoke very highly of you -- she always looked forward to your visits and seemed sad once the visit was over (but in her stoic way of course).
It would be wonderful if you could stick around. But thanks already for checking in. (And please pass on my heartfelt thanks to your husband for pushing her into opening her world -- in doing so, and allowing us access to Noddy, he improved many of our worlds, as well.)
Oh, goofy, I mean, doglady, your post made me cry...
We're not always so berserk, but all of us, or many, loved Noddy, deeply, not surface stuff although that too.
The goofy was a tease from me..
It is killing us she's not here.
We don't want to somehow own her in some online way, more that we want to add.

Miss Noddy kept me pointed right, when I truly needed vision.
She was a most wonderful lady, and will live on in more hearts than even she imagined. She is SO missed, and MUCH loved.
Thank you for posting,

I've wanted to meet you ever since I met D___. It was at Jasper White's Summer Shack, was it a few years ago? We all had a blast. I slipped a book in Noddy's purse before my husband (he's Region Philbis on this site) and I had to leave. Can't recall what book it was, it was a paperback.
A few months ago, Noddy returned the favor and sent me a book called The Strange Adventures of Ranger Girl. It's sitting on this desk.
You've made us all very happy tonight.
Good night from the Eastern side of Massachusetts.

Dear Noddy's Daughter-In-Law,
Thank you for writing. I am always happy when hard and true members' loved ones come to visit. I, many of us, really did absolutely adore Noddy. Your husband's efforts to get her online did most of us a great service as Noddy was our matriarch, or goddess of wisdom.

My sentiments are the same as Kris'.
Thanks so much for checking in and seeing where Noddy spent a lot of her time.

I needed to write to Noddy tonite... this morning.... not maudlin... just some words I know she would have been happy to hear and share....
It's 12th September 2008 - a day I didn't think would arrive for the BigBoy... Noddy told me it would - she believed it when I didn't - she was wise in her words to me regarding this.
I've been sat outside - the moon is so bright - the night is like day and the stars are out - of course, I feel Noddy around me when I look at the moon. She would understand how important today is for me - hard to explain - but she would understand - I miss her terribly, selfishly, but today, 12th September 2008 is a special day. My BigBoy turned 16. I wish I could tell her.
Thanku 'Bou - and I think she would know too. My son came home tonite.
Welcome Noddy's DIL - my love to you and D. Much. x

I've been learning to "Tag" by tagging my old threads, and just yesterday I came across two that I probably started on late night riffs and they built into enjoyable repartee past the original posts, and Noddy was right there.
I'll look for them tomorrow and post the links here, given that I find them again.
They were the kind of threads that just develop, no matter the original subject.

Noddy's wake is this Saturday 09/20/08 1-4pm in Easton PA
doglady? The same doglady who used to post regularly a while back? (If so, wow, what a surprise! And, if not, please excuse my confusing you with someone else.)
Either way, thank you so much for posting & sharing your thoughts about Noddy.
And you'll be back, right?
