This image is dedicated to Lynell (tennesseecowgirl). She is one of the sweetest ladies in the gallery and a friend for some time now. Her gallery is filled with beautiful photos of nature, and is always a pleasure to visit. Lynell has a charming nature and really can touch you with her words. She has the ability to make people smile no matter how bad they feel. When you combine her charm with her talent for photography it is the perfect combination. She has done so much for me that I wanted to do a dedication for her. Lynell shared this story with me, and I wanted to share it with all of you. She really did a great job of providing so many details, and brought it to life for me.
Kitties In The Closet (for tennesseecowgirl): It was the fourth of July, and Lynell was excited because it was her birthday. The people in her neighborhood had a big party to celebrate the holiday, and her birthday. She had a great time playing games with everyone, but she had one problem. Her cat Tiger was gone, and she couldn't find her. Tiger was afraid of loud fireworks, and she would hide all the time. Lynell's brother Randy talked her into playing baseball, and told her they would search for Tiger later. Lynell went to the closet to get her baseball glove, and was surprised when she opened the door. She saw Tiger looking up at her with four kittens moving all around. They purred and snuggled as close to their Mom as they could. Lynell knelt down on the floor. She rubbed one kitten on his belly as he rolled all about. Soon Lynell's family came in to check on her. Her brother Randy knelt down beside her and looked on in awe. Her older siblings Loraine and Frank were so happy too, and could only stare at the closet kitties. This was the best birthday present Lynell could ever hope for, the gift of new life.
P.S. Lynell do you recognize anyone on the wall ;)

Lynell is one of the sweetest people I know and to add my comment to her dedi is an honor! You've captured the expressions perfectly! Awesome scene, a great tribute to Lynell! Once again you've brought back a memory for me, similar experience that I will share with you at some other time. I love visiting Lynell's gallery, she has shared recipes with me and laughter and I consider her a true friend. Thank you Dave for honoring her this way!

Oh wow !! that was my first impression. And in your site mail this morning to me you said you hope this makes me smile, and yes if you only knew how much I needed the smile today, it made me smile and cry a bit, but good tears.
And you have certainly captured the moment of that day, I can still remember this scene so well, thank you for creating it into a keepsake for me. This is so precious I will treasure it forever. You even got my eye color right. And the gold carpeting is that shag carpet?? lol what fond memories Tiger was my first pet, I had to beg my parents to let me keep her, then I went on to name her Andy for singer ( Andy Williams) because my mom was a fan of his, and my dad said umm you can't name her Andy because she is a girl lol so that is when I picked the name Tiger. She was a beautiful cat and a treasured friend.
Dave, thank you so much for this, I know you put hours and hours, into your work, but the outcome as seen here is you brighten up so many with your precious creations, you certainly have brightened my day thank you for this gift, and for your gift of friendship. xo
And yes I did notice the posters, how funny that you remembered that detail I mentioned. and uh oh have we given away my age as Mike said, its true I am 29 LOL lets keep them guessing ok lol.. so yep I guess there was another Dave in my life lol
thanks again my friend for this special gift. Xo
