Well happy Friday everyone! Fridays are my favorites and all week long I look forward to Following In The FootSteps of someone I admire here in Blog Land. Someone that I would like, in some small way emulate. And today it is all about Barb Taylor who truly is passionate about pets and people and I think about everything that lives.
Like me, she seems to have started this blog back in January 2011 and committed to postaweek at the encouragement of a friend. Her second post pretty much encapsulates her philosophy. She said, “
A hundred years from now,
it will not matter the sort of house I lived in,
what my bank account was, or the car I drove . . .
but the world may be different
because I was important
in the life of animals and the creatures of this earth.
From that wonderful platform Barb has given us all sorts of treasures about dogs, chickens, dingos, joeys, kangaroos, whales, and even wasps. And there is more!
The very first time I discovered Barb was waaaay back when she posted on the Town she grew up in called Peebles. I was so excited because I had just recently returned from Scotland so knew the area she talked about. (I left her more than one comment that day)
March 10th, 2011 ‘I was in Peebles a couple of years ago..just a Canadian girl visiting her mom’s native land…it is beautiful. My Mum was from Gorebridge. Love the country..love the people and proud to have some of that fine Scots blood in me,
So I am talking addiction here. The kind you cannot shake -thank goodness-
As we, in Canada, face the coming fall and winter, Barb is sailing into spring and coming summer.
In September that year she and her hubby flew off to her homeland where she saw her brother for the first time in 25 years.
She is very proud of her adopted country – Australia – and there is a wealth of information about it in her posts. Matter of fact there is a wealth of information about the world in general. Living true to her philosophy she is indeed -
important in the life of animals and the creatures of this earth.
Actually I believe she is important in more lives than she realizes.
Please do stop by to visit, to learn, to feel. And do say hi or leave a comment or two. **I so wanted to throw in something about putting shrimp on the barbie since it is a comment linked to Australia and BBQs but just couldn’t work it in anywhere!
