A heartfelt thanks from Glyn and the patient cat.



We at the House of Ginger have been asked by Mr Griffith, our good friend, to say a very big and warm thank you to everyone who took the time and trouble to send cards and letters and pictures and good wishes to him while he was away from home. He is back now, home with Nadolig who is very pleased to see him. He is well, enjoying the sunshine, the familiar and loved surroundings, the garden and the birdsong, and the company of cats again.
And he just wanted to say thanks.
He still has all the cards, in a very heavy bag and will sit and look through, sharing with Nadolig, and marvelling at the simple kindness of strangers who took time to send a line, a wish, a greeting until their thoughts wrapped around the world in a wish that these two friends would be reunited.
And they are.

Such wonderful news, and so lovely to put a face with a name.
Mr. G looks like a fine gentleman, and what could be sweeter than to hold in his arms his faithful feline Nadolig...
Welcome home Sir, I wish you many days filled with sunshine and happiness.
Hugs,
Jo

Oh what a lovely reunion and return home. Your neighbor has a wonderful look to him, and I was happy to send him a card to encourage him, from half way around the world in California. I love this good news.

Great photo of happiness. it is so nice to see my own son's name , GLYN in print. There are no Glyn's over here. And your Glyn has the white bushy eyebrows that make him look like a true Welshman.

I'm glad to see Glyn back at home, in the company of Nadolig.
My dad used to wear exactly the same jacket. And come to think of it, he looked a bit like Glyn too.

Lookng at that picture, we get the straingest feeling that Mr Griddith was a bit of a mistchif maker at one time in his life.

Glad to see he is home again and hanging out with Nadolig.
