Saturday's Critters #115

Saturday's Critters #115

To those who have not heard, I am truly sorry to pass on this sad news and to hear of the loss of our blogging sister Tina  @ EG Camera Girl and her husband Tom. My heartfelt condolences and prayers go to the family, may God give them peace and comfort in these difficult days. Tina will be truly missed in our blogging world. I will remember Tina when I look back at her beautiful photos, she has left many photograph memories that we can cherish.


RIP Tina.



Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.

For my post I am sharing a few Purple Finches that stopped by my yard briefly. They ate and ran  flew away.













Nibbles our grandpuppy is now a little over a year old.




As always thanks for the visits and the nice comments. I also thank everyone who is linking up and sharing their critters.. Happy Saturday, have a great weekend!

  38. My favorite photos to remember from EG camera girl are the reflections she took. she was the queen of shadows and reflections. my heart hurts for her family and for blog lands loss of her.

    Nibbles is really growing up fast and makes me think of our dog Max.. love the little pastel pink birds

    ReplyDelete
  39. You pass on such sad news Eileen. Tina was a visitor to my blog amnd me to hers. But thanks for doing so.

    Your Purple Finches are quite remarkable in their spring colours - almost "Magenta Finches". Nibbles seems to share your curiosity about the world beyond the immediate - he's a little "cracker".

    Have a lovely weekend and thanks for allowing me to join in your special day.

  44. For me, the message of EG Camera Girl was a shock. He can not get to the town, with its no longer be among us. * Birds are beautiful. These have not seen in nature. The dog loved. * I know that you were with me, and the comments were disabled. It's not me, and they turned off the worst I could not turn on. There have been many different attempts, but only copy of this post, and then re been available for help. Already there are comments. Regards.

  48. Hi Eileen, thanks for the beautiful tribute to Tina and her husband. I'm still reeling from the shock of their deaths.

  67. Very poignant Eileen, Tina will be missed greatly. She was a wonderful lady and her love of all things came through in her incredible photography.

    I enjoyed your photos and the ones of Nibbles made me smile. Thank you and have a wonderful Sunday.

  68. I had got a comment from Tina and yesterday when I opened her blog I was shocked to read what had happened. It's always sad to loose a blogfriend although we don't know us personally.

    Love your pictures !

    ReplyDelete
  69. sweet of you to remember CameraGirl, she is one who will be truly missed. i know i will think of her often. i was going through all my comments since the beginning of my blog and remembering her, kind comments & constant encouragement. Andy @ Eye Candy showed her & the husband's obituary, i must admit i did try to google them, my hubby thinks it must have been a very bad accident to have them both lost, so so sad, with no luck in finding it online, i was so glad he did post it, they have a big family who will be missing them so much. that is so tough. rough. i agree with the others above, the caring and loving memories of her will keep us going. she was well loved and appreciated for her amazing photography.

    what a cutie ... i really enjoy the one in the grocery cart. precious! ( :

  70. Love the finches Eileen!! And....Thank you so very much for sharing this post on I'd Rather B Birdin' for the week. Much appreciated. Have a great Sunday.

  71. Yes it's very sad about Tina and her husband.

    The purple finches are such a lovely colour

    ReplyDelete
  72. I really have to get out there and get and get a few photos of how wonderfully fuzzy and full my dog's coat is right now, and join in your fabulous link party. I haven't been able to sort myself out since Uncle passed, but things are coming along.
    I had only visited Tina a few times, and she was a wonderful photographer. I am so very sorry to hear about her passing.

  73. Eileen, nice capture of the Purple Finch activity. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  74. You've got a whole flock of finches. Nibbles has really grown. I think of Tina nearly every day now - a good reminder to live life to the fullest (which I believe she did).

    ReplyDelete
  75. Lots of Purple Finches around now..Cute puppy..Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Good morning Eileen, the loss of Tina, and her husband still lays heavy on my heart. She is still in my thoughts, she will be missed dearly. Her passing, and early morning outing with a Boy Scout race, along with other well directed plans with temps in the 50's caused me being a day late to post here. I did gather a few photos for your critters though. Oh and your photos all lovely shots but oh my goodness that pup in the cart, oh he's so cute. Funny thing how going to a few of our pet shops around here, you can enter feeling the blues, meet a few no make that a lot of furry friends, and life is feeling good again. Take good care of you!

    ReplyDelete
  77. There are so many lovely tributes circulation in the blog world and on Facebook for the the lovely and talented Tina and her husband, Tom. So sad.

    ReplyDelete
  78. So sensitive tribute for Tina. Such a sad news and indeed like you said "Tina will be truly missed in our blogging world."
    Nibbles is such a little cute and I see that is enjoying walks along with you! so nice to have a companion! It seems spring is near, so till next post; Best regards and a good week ahead!

  79. I did not follow EG's blog. I did, though, just now add the t to my list of blogs. What beauty she captured in her photographs. I want to look back in her blog and see some of the beauty I missed. I extend my condolences to EG's family and friends.

  82. I will really miss Tina's blog posts. She was one of the first few people I followed on Blogger when I started blogging nearly 5 years ago. She was always full of encouragement when I started out.
