i'm so glad they gave us this

Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds on the Oprah Winfrey Show, 2011

I watched this interview this morning, and it’s full of wonderful moments. Honest moments. Hilarious moments. Memories and history and so many trials. Sadness and joy and two wonderful women who have lived such full lives in the public eye. 

A wonderful moment, after discussing growing up with starlet parents, where Debbie says that it works out because ‘now I’m the mother of Princess Leia.’ There’s just a lovely, quiet pride there.

And they duet! For, I think, the first time on camera.

About 2 weeks ago, Palomacy messaged us asking if we could bring some food to a nice person in our city who saved a pigeon from two cats. They were stalking it on the street and the poor bird could barely fly. Fantails are completely domesticated and unable to survive in the wild, so it either escaped or its owner dumped it outside :(

It turns out that the rescuer lives just down the street from us! I brought Miu over to say hi to our new neighbors and we gave a short lesson on how to care for pigeons. The unnamed bird looked good, but was very light for its size.

We visited again recently, and the beautiful fantail has gained weight and looks more alert. It also has a name now: Turkey! (for obvious reasons)

I received the letter below from the Ferguson Library and wanted to share. It’s beautiful :)

Two years ago, we at the Ferguson Municipal Public Library were doing everything we could think of to help the people of Ferguson, Missouri at a time of overwhelming need.  You cared enough to notice, and cared enough to help.  You recognized the special role we, as a library, can play in helping our community heal, and in bringing our community together.  You were one of nearly 12,000 people who gave $10, $20, $40 or more, resulting in $450,000 of donations, all told.  That was more than our yearly budget!  

There is a well of gratitude in me that I cannot begin to express.  Thank you.

You changed what kind of library we are.  We were struggling, frankly, when I started on July 1, 2014.  My predecessor had watched her tax-based funding drop dramatically with the housing market, and Ferguson was on the slow end of that recovery.  No more full time staff, almost no programming, and a community with real, tangible needs that a library could meet.  Your donations helped us blossom, growing into a library that worked hard to meet those needs.  For the last two years, we have been blessed with the chance to be a different sort of library.  We are now community focused, with lots of programming, and responsive, with the freedom to run with ideas that help our people.  That is all thanks to you.

But you’ll want to know some specifics.

Thank you so much for sharing your photos of the Tour! They're awesome <3

Happy you’re enjoying them!

i’m just sorry they aren’t as sharp or clear. They gave us a limited time to browse the lots so i was rushing to take as many photos as i could! not to mention lights everywhere! practically impossible to find a decent position where the lights didn’t bounce off the glass.

Okay I have to stop being a lazy butt because my followers deserve some love. I still don’t understand why you are here - there are a lot of Peggy on this website and they all are wonderful. You probably understood it by now but our little Agent means a lot to me and I’m glad to see that I’m not the only one who love her so much. (✿◠‿◠) As both a woman and a scriptwriter, I’m profoundly happy that Marvel gave us such a beautiful lady that inspires so many of us. I feel hounoured to have the privilege to rp with her and all of you. I’m sorry, I know I’m a slow turtle and my english is far from being perfect - the sentence Pardon my French has a very different meaning for me (◔ ◡ ◔)  - but you’re nice with me and it means more than words can express. I apologize if I forgot someone - it’s 4:30 am and my memory isn’t the best. It doesn’t mean I don’t love you, so please, don’t be sad.
