We Had a Dream..

My Friend Debbie said to me a long time ago that She wished we could meet as she felt she knew me well. We ( Our cats Scruffy and Alfie ) talked to each other often. Then we lost contact. I found out that was because Debbie was Ill. I tried to find Debbie but was having no luck. I searched the groups that Scruffy was in..to see if there was any posts .I asked some friends for help, advice as to how to extend my search.I got good help and advice..I also emailed HQ who passed on my message to Debbie..who emailed me..YES We had contact. This was the start of The Dream. The Incredible Journey .Two Friends, Two Countries.. Uk and USA ,One Ocean, Many Friends from around the world joined this Dream...They are The Dream Makers.
The Dream was about to become a Reality.

A Dream Awakes

UK to Philadelphia and Florida

Dream .....26th December 08

UK to Florida

Photo of Dale and Lyn in Philadelphia.

After many talks with Donna, (Morgan,s mum ) it was looking like this Dream might actually Come True.Donna took it on, She got the Go Ahead from HQ to start a Private Group and that is where Dreams and Visions joined together.

Auctions ,Donations, So many People joined in to make this Group into the Fantastic Group it has become.Funding came from all over the world.

The Dream was begining to Awake..

I spoke to Debbie and asked if she would like a Visitor !! Deb said YES !

The Dream was Alive.

I did many mistakes along the way , some BIG and some Bigger !! Flights got booked..then ..the finding of hotels in Orlando and Daytona got underway...Yes, I booked flights to the wrong airports. One of my Many mistakes..Having never flown to USA I wasnt prepared for what I was about to recieve !! After all Joy,s ( Princess Sophie ,s mum ) Hard work I had Hotels to go to.Orlando and Daytona Beach.Thankyou Joy.

My flight left Manchester on Dec 26th I had to change flights in Philadelphia. Moozer,s mum and Dad , Dale and Neil came to Philadelphia to meet me. They drove from New York . We had a Great time ,eating Philly Cheese Steaks and drinking Coffee ( I like Coffee !! ) We talked, Laughed, and I felt like Id known Dale and Neil for ever.Yes Dale..I will take you up on your offer to stay with you on your Houseboat..It sounds Great ,plus I get to meet Alfies Mate Moozer !! ...ulteria motive ,,grins )

Dale and Neil got me back to the airport with loads of time to spare.

I got checked in again..Looked at my ticket for the Gate...(here is where mistake number ...??? happened ) I headed to Gate 26. WOW, this Airport is BIG ! I looked for a Hire car,,a Bus..a taxi !! At least I was kept fit..it was a long walk.Found gate 26.I sat down knowing I had hrs to wait..I watched planes come and go..at about 7 pm I asked the Lady manning the podium about the Orlando flight.She said " ohh, just sit down and I will see you after Ive done this paperwork " OK I thought.., Well, I checked my ticket for the hundreth time..I actually ripped my ticket in half cos I was taking in out so many times..gulp ! (it was ok I was told ! ) That is when I saw Gate 28 ......not 26....the DATE was 26...not GATE. Ohh No,,,I dashed to Gate 28 but my flight to Orlando was taking off ...without Me !! Ohh well, Mistakes are happen....yes, BIG ones !Off I trotted to the US info desk...There I stood in line ...One guy had missed his flight as HE was sat in a Bar...The Lady( with the Face of Stone ) told him in no uncertain words that he had to pay for his hotel, flight change etc...I counted my Dollars..GULP ! I wondered If Singing would help ? grins.My turn to face the Face Of Stone...I explained I had been sat at the wrong gate...The Face of Stone melted into a Face of Smiles.This Lady was Very nice..She booked me onto the next Flight to Orlando,,Saturday afternoon ) She also gave me Hotel and shuttle details..and didnt want any money from me,,( I bet that guy who was sat in the Bar was cursing me !! )

Off I went to find a shuttle ...It was late, I was tired but all the errors were My Errors . I stood outside and waited for a shuttle...That is when I phoned Maria to let her know I wouldnt be in Orlando til Saturday evening.She told me to Stop right where I was,,Not board ANY Shuttle...and was phoning me back in 5 minutes.. Maria phoned me back,,,and told me to go across to the Marriot Hotel as it was In the Airport..She had booked me in there.( Maria has been a Guardian Angel throughout this Visit .)

The Marriot Hotel was really nice ..Im not use to such Luxuries..It was strange..but Very nice..I cant thank Maria enough.

Next morning..Off to my Next Flight..I got through Check in..was searched..and they took my Peanut Butter and Jelly off me..(Dale gave me those along with my Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich...Grins..they didnt find That !! ..licks Lips ! .

My ticket said GATE 8...A so off I went...WOW...this Airport grew over night im sure. I found Gate 8..A .I had Hrs and Hrs to wait..but I wasnt moving from this Gate..I looked at the Departure board..it said MY flight was departing at Gate 20A..Hummm...Ticket said gate 8 A...Board said Gate 20A..Here we go again...Gates ...I was telling Maria..who checked and said Yes, gate 20A is My departure gate..So I went off in search of a Taxi !! (It was a BIG airport !! ) I found gate 20A..and stayed there ..All was well. This was the right place. My flight to Orlando arrived..I boarded ..I arrived in Orlando Airport safe and well...Now to find the Hotel shuttle place...Do I need a Taxi ? grins..Nope..I found the Shuttle place ..Phoned for the Hotel shuttle service and was on my way...What a trip so far..Full of adventures, Now to check in...Very nice place..BIG...ohh you will get use to that BIG word by the time Ive finished this ..Grins. Well, I think its time to sleep...Tomorrow is another Adventure along the Dream,s Pathway .

Orlando to Daytona , meeting Joy

Monday 29th December 08 Photo,s of Hotel Room View and Joy by " my " pond

Today I set off on another journey to Daytona..my base for this Dream Visit with Debbie. I have many mixed emotions running through me. Getting nearer to meeting Debbie, meeting Joy, seeing more of Florida,s beautiful BIG open spaces.

I arrived at the DOshuttle in plenty of time..Met a lady from London on it too.We chatted dureing the drive to Daytona. I saw BIG lizards ( aka Aligators ) in the Halifax river. I liked them. The roads are long , Big, and Busy...I dont think Id be safe driving here as Id be looking at the scenery more than the road ! We arrived in the DOshuttle Drop off place. I met Joy here. Joy is Lovely ,she made me feel at ease.We talked as we drove to get some breakfast..Denny,s ? I think it was called. I tried your Pancakes with Maple syrup..They are not like our pancakes..Ours are thin and we add sugar and lemon juice on them. It was nice.Everything was nice. I really enjoyed that coffee...After breakfast Joy drove me to my Hotel ,We went to the shop to get a few bits, milk coffee sugar cookies ..That should do me . We will be meeting Debbie tomorrow. Joy told me about the Sunrises ..I will be up to watch it rise tomorrow..

After saying goodbye to Joy for today I settled down in my room.I love the maps on the tv .Weather maps. Isnt Florida Big ! . I went to look at the ocean..it was peaceful. Love the Pelicans too. I had a nice evening , This Dream IS Alive .Im really here..and going to meet Debbie tomorrow.

I Watched The Sun Rise ...A Special Day Dawns

Joy,s Pond,

Joy took me to see a Walmart...Hmm, Big arnt they !So, if I cant buy it in Walmart..I go to ...Myers ??? grins.
We went back to Joys house and had a coffee and I met joys Babies..At first they wouldnt say Hello ,,but they soon came out as they got use to me being there over the week.They are so Beautiful.
Isaw Joy,s Pond..Ohh WOW..There is something Powerful there..A sort of Spiritual feeling..I could feel myself floating..a calmness came over me...This Pond needed to be Breathed in,,both by my eyes and soul. I couldnt get enough of it,s powers.
Tom, Joy and I had dinner together. , Then ,after dinner Joy and Tom took me to see some houses All lit up with Christmas lights. It looks So nice..Loads of lights . In uk they dont light up the houses so nicely.This was Lovely to see.
After I was dropped off at my hotel, I made a Coffee ,,another Big coffee and phoned Donna to say Hello and Thankyou. Donna and I chatted for over an Hr. Donna is so nice. I was telling Donna that tomorrow Deb had invited Joy and I to share some lunch with them. Looking forwards to seeing debbie again.
Joy has another Album to take to Deb,s too. .

Two Friends Meet...Tuesday 30th December 08

Today Debbie and I met. Oceans apart...Side by Side. We said Hi...

Today , A very Special day...Debbie and I said Hello. I felt very emotional .
Debbie has a very loving family. She is so nice..We talked, Debbie, Joy and I..I gave Deb the little Album Id put together with cards , messages, One of Alfie,s Rosettes, a couple of letters from me to Deb..
I gave Deb some small gifts Id brought over with me. We stayed for a short while as Debbie was tired..We didnt want to put too much on her. We left Deb to rest.
As we walked to Joy,s car I felt so humbled, full of tears. The feeling was one of Joy, sadness, and full of questions..Why ? Why Debbie ? If I could swop places and give Debbie her future I would have.

Dinner with Debbie

Wednesday 31st December...08

Today Its Ladies who Lunch !! ok Its me and two friends meeting up for lunch.Joy picked me up at about 10am. We went to Joys to get the Album that was made ..Then I had to Breathe in My pond ...Deep Breaths ,...Very calming...(wonder if I can sneak that pond past customs ?? )

Joy and I set off to Debbies house.Its a nice drive..for the passenger anyhow..Grins..Again..my eyes took so many pictures..

Debbie lives in such a lovely area ..Trees..Oh yes, I Love trees. We were welcomed in by Debbie.We chatted over lunch..Debbies friend came over to meet us too. Scruffy kept us giggling with his antics..He joined us for some lunch too. So Cute.Deb,s daughter had cooked , We ate, I took some pictures of Debbies Foster kitten Fluffy (a young White girl,,very cute )

We sat for a while just talking, Debbie said something that really got deep into me..again..I could feel my eyes filling up..I had to look away ...Debbie said...." At least I get to see the New Year in "

That Lady, my Friend Debbie is One Special Person. She is more worried about her family than herself.Ohh How I Admire Debbie. ...I will never forget those words.

A New Year dawns, I watch The Sunrise...deep in Thought..

What will today bring ? What does this New Year hold in store ? Ok, 2008 is yesterday..2009 is today..A year apart but less than 24 hrs in reality.I hope this will be a better year for all. I Wish all my Friends near and far ..Everything They would Wish For Theirselves. May All Your Dreams Come True....

Why do we get to thinking and try to find reasons for certain events in our lives around New Year Time ? I know I do.. As I watch the Sunrise I begin to think of Bagpuss, Why was he taken so young ? Just 8mths old .. I think Im in Big need of a Coffee ...My 2 brain cells cant cope with having to work at this time of day. I do tend to think too deeply at times..Maybe that is good, maybe bad..I dont know..its Just Me ,I am what I am..No one special, just me. That Ocean looks so nice .The dawn , the waves lapping at the shore.The birds, Its a Big World So many thoughts are going through my mind as I sit here.This Dream is Real.Who would have thought that I would be here,,in Florida at New Year, visiting a Friend ive never met before..? Who would have thought that all this is down to people all around the world who also have never met ? Who could imagine the way all these people pulled together to bring two friends together to say Hello.? Who could have seen this Dream and brought it to life...? Donna did....Thankyou Donna. Who is watching us ? I feel the care and compasion of all these people..these Friends ....and I thank each one of these Friends for their help in making this Wish Come True. Meeting Debbie has been So Amazing.

Talking to people Ive only typed to has been So Special. . It feels like a Dream...but Im awake...Im here in Florida..Ive met Debbie . I feel so much richer for having you all in my life. .................This is a Beautiful Dawn. ....I think another Coffee is called for....a Big one. I better get myself ready, Joy will be here soon.

A New Year , Morning Has Broken...01/01/09

A New Day, A New Year..Old Friends Im Holding Near.
What will this Brand New Year bring? Where will it take us ?
I watched the Dawn Break over the Night...This is the Dawning of a New Year..What does it hold ? Where will it take me ? A new day, new year, new land , New sights, new feelings , New friends . Today is only Yesterday,s Tomorrow ...so why does it seem so different ? So New ? So Big ?
The dawn of this New Day has me thinking again of our tomorrows, our yesterdays..I walked along the sands...It was quiet...just me and the Gulls.A perfect time to reflect on the full meaning of this Dream ...My mind wanders ...my thoughts flow...My Friends are near...yet so far...but I can feel them near..Ive been guided gently along this Journey...by the hands of Friendship.
Those Hands of Friendship will be Held forever.............in my Heart.....bound tight by Purrs and Smiles
******* ******** ********* ******** ******** ********
Morning has Broken...Id better get back to the hotel as Joy will be here soon...Just time to grab another Coffee....Hmmmm does Walmart sell IV Coffee ?
Joy arrived to pick me up... Its slightly overcast with a light breeze....( See ..I told you it was Winter !! )Still No Coat needed...We are not going to see Debbie today....Joy took me to a Mall....Yep....its .........BIG ..! We have some places like this in UK, but Ive not been to the Big ones..Im not really a Shopperholic...It was nice to walk around though and see what was there.I would have bought some new Jeans IF Id seen Wrangler Jeans...I cant find womens or girls Wrangler Jeans in UK anywhere. Always mens but none to fit me....
Joy took me back to her house where I tried Grits...er..well,,,,Im not sure ...well Yes I am...Grins....I dont think Im a Grits Fan...But ...Wheres the Tape Recorder.....I DID like Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich...Theres a Surprise..Me..Alfies Typist..and Peanut Butter sandwiches... Ok ..so ...What are you going to say about that !!.....grins. Joy tried Marmite on Toast ..MMmmm I Love Marmite.......Dont think its Joys thing though....I went to Breath in Joys Pond..How I miss that Pond and its secrets.
Joy cooked dinner , It was lovely. Thankyou Joy for ALL your hospitality and friendship. You and Tom are Truely Beautiful People. Hugs. .....Tomorrow we will go to visit Debbie.

Daytona Beach and a Pelican !!

Jan 2nd Friday.

This is....was....a Pelican flying past...Yes, it does look like a Space Ship..but it WAS a Pelican.... Cant you tell ? ..a Space Ship..yeah right,,what did you add to your coffee ? Nipz ? Its a Pelican.. Just take my word for it..!!

This is the view as I drank my Coffee ,Gentle waves rolling onto the shore. Today Joy is picking me up and we are going to visit Debbie for a bit .She has a friend calling in to meet us too. I am looking forwards to seeing Deb again. I know it will be Monday before we can visit again.Joy has work at the weekends . Its another hot Winters day in Florida...Do I need a Coat ? grins...Joy and I went to went to a store to find a cable for the camera..then off to Debbies.Deb looked a bit tired...She was happy to see us, we chatted, had some lunch.Met Deb,s friend and her mum. They are a Lovely Family.So much Love in that house.
Debbie was getting tired,she was feeling a bit rough so we left Deb to rest.It was a lovely meeting, but Deb needed her rest.
I felt those questions pouring through my head again...as we walked to the car..Why ?? Why ?? Why not me instead of Deb ?? Why ? Yes, I felt anger ..I questioned God .I felt so many things..WHY ? ..Why ?
Joy and I drove back to Joys house..I headed for that Pond..Breathed in deep, as the calmness took hold,This is some Powerful Pond.
Tomorrow I will be at the hotel as Joy is working.Im sure I will find somewhere to go, The beach needs to be walked.. Joy will phone on Sunday to arrange plans.

Beach Buggys ,Dont Walk... Just Grin

Today..Saturday 3rd Jan. Joy is working today so I am going to check out Daytona...Look out...theres a Brit on the loose !! I sat with my Big mug of coffee and pondered on what / where to go..I needed milk.. I decided to nip to the shop and get the milk..then got pulled into a small cake shop,well, they did look nice..grins. So, I had my Coffee , milk, and cake..That should do me nicely.After going back to the Hotel and "filling" the fridge up I walked down the beach...passing some Beach Buggies for hire.. Yes, I hired one..It was nice..The guy said I can go 1 mile one direction and about 7 miles in the other..Not bad I though..So, after getting sorted with my " Wheels" ( bet Alfie would like this ) I set off up the beach...the 7 mile direction...Stopped to buy a can of coke along the way...Hmm ,no Cup holder.......ohh well, I had a foot rest..I can wedge the can there...Yes, my coke did get Hot from the engine ...next to the foot rest where Id wedged the can. I Might like Hot Coke..Dont scoff it til youve tried it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! grins.

I returned the Buggy and set of walking back to the hotel Grabbed a Coffee..yes,,a Big one .

After my Coffee I walked along the road towards the Big bridge and cross roads...I pressed the button...The HAND said DONT WALK..ok, Im not that thick as to cross while 27 million cars are raceing round the bend towards me..I will wait for The HAND to Command. I waited, and waited, I counted the cars, I looked like a lemon standing thereBut,,The HAND did Command..DONT WALK. ok..I waited some more. I had a snooze, a coffee, painted a Master piece...another 16 thousand cars whizzed past. I pressed the button again..just incase ..but The HAND said I SAID DONT WALK ,,cant you read ??? OK... OK ..keep your ....Ohh forget it..Ive gone off the idea now anyway..I dont want to Cross now..so there HAND !! I turned and walked towards the River to say Hi to some BIG Lizards..I looked back just as The HAND said WALK ....too late matey..Im out of there now..got another place to see !The Halifax River Lizards..the BIG ones . The river was nice and BIG. .. Ok Im hungry now,,,Theres a Hot dog stand..Licks Lips.. I set off back along the road towards the hotel munching my Hot Dog ,mustard dripping , yummy. .I arrived back at the hotel ,grabbed a Coffee..then decided to grab a beer ..a Shock Top. Thats Missie,s bad influence ,,Grins...I like Those Shock Tops... I sat outside my room and watched the night fall. ( I would have caught it but wasnt going to spill my beer !! ) .Deb said she hopes to come out with us to see the Manatee...That would be really Great..Both Deb , Joy and I are looking forwards to this...

Tonight I spoke to Dale, Donna and Maria and Deb...Deb was feeling sickly.. I hope she will be feeling better tomorrow.

Joy came over at around 9am We went back to Joys house..I drowned in The Pool ...(not literally ) We had a coffee and Joy told me of todays plans..A drive round The Loop , ( Alovely drive through a tunnel of Trees..I could just visulise it in its Glory. Yes, I love Trees. We went to Sugar Mill Gardens too,

This was also very nice..The old Sugar mill, the walks, trees, plants, Dinosaurs..aka BIG Lizards .We stopped to look at the river. saw Old Florida waterways, wetlands. Very Nice ...yes ok Big too !. I love the many vast open spaces.. BIG open spaces. I love to touch leaves, and was surprised when feeling a leaf at Sugar Mill Gardens that its texture was So NOT as I would have thought.. Joy warned m,e to keep a look out for Rattlers as we walked through the paths at Sugar Mill, I said ,,Ok Joy,,lead the way ..grins.. We had a lovely time. Bet our Lupe would have liked that place . The Huge Old Tree in the centre of the gardens was So grand..so reagal.. I love the shape the branches made,,I like Trees. Big trees, I hope the photo,s come out ok. .

We said goodbye to the trees and headed back towards Joys house.We visited a PetSmart too. I saw the Foster cats..oohhhhhh , purrs purrs.One Black and white guy came to say Hi,,He was purring his head off.

Back at Joys..I Breath in the Pond. Joy phoned Debbie to see how she was and see if she will be coming to see the Manatee tomorrow with us...Debbie isnt too good today...tomorrows Outing looks bleak..............

I hope Deb will be ok,, Joy cooked dinner.. then we headed back to my hotel .Thankyou Joy.I had a Lovely day.

Below is The Intentional Error ! A Big Lizard from Sugar Mills Garden..he fancied a Day Out with us..

Joy, Lyn and Alfie Tee Shirt. That Cat gets everywhere.


Another Nice hot Winters Day in Florida. Today Joy and Tom took me to Blue Springs State Park to see the Manatee and the BIG Lizards aka Aligators ...Joy phoned Deb to see if she was up to coming..Debbie wasnt well today..I spoke to Deb for a few minutes but didnt want her getting out of breath..We will talk later today after Deb is rested.

I bought a cute little soft Manatee to give to Debbie from the Park Gift store.

The Blue Springs State Park is So nice,,the waters are so beautiful, Big too. grins. We saw the Manatee at a distance,,we saw Big Lizards too. Lots of Squirals, birds and boats. I just loved the waters.Watching the Manatee lifting its tail ..following their shadows as the quietly glide through the waters..This place is very nice. As we were walking along ..a couple passed us and the lady said to me...." Pretty Kitty....(no, not to Me..grins..My Tee Shirt...my Alfie tee Shirt was what she was looking at.. aaawww I thought..someone likes Alfie too.

opps,,another BIG gap...Look closer..it might be Snow !

Some of my pics are blurred but ..Im not very good with a camera..as you have prob, guessed by now. Hope you can make out the Manatee..and Big Lizard basking on the far bank. I know some non inteligent life form added a BIG Lizard ..but he sneaked in my pocket after visiting Sugar Mill Gardens and I thought he would feel at home here ...grins,,I told you Im no good with a camera or clever things...!! Spot the Intentional Error ,,,!

Sorry about these BIG gaps between the posts but Ive no idea how to fill them in...maybe a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich would help ?

or....some of that Key Lime Pie..grins..yeah..its ok I guess,,,grins ( I love that KLP )

It would have been So Nice to share this with Debbie.I hope to see her tomorrow.Hope she is feeling a little better by tonight.Deb sounded very short of breath this morning. Hugs Debbie.
We departed the Blue Springs Park and headed to Joy and Tom,s house..and My Pond! It has been a Truely wonderful afternoon. So nice ,so Beautiful. So many pictures in my eyes camera..
