Norwood Ontario Canada.

Thinking of Mike Oxley alot today…now that the summer has passed and we are into fall…so many things I’ve seen and taken pics of have brought him to mind, I find myself constantly thinking “Mike would love this”…and I feel sad, but then smile because something of beauty made me think of him and that is truly amazing, and proves that he lives on in my mind and heart. :O] xo

He often told how much he loved Cosmos….and this is one of hundreds that I scattered around my gardens for him this summer, knowing he would be looking over them for me. :O]

    Aww, hon this is beautiful. I thought of him yesterday too, why is that? Is his presence here on the bubble? I came across something of his yesterday that was written for him and took another look. We will never forget these wonderful internet friends, and that includes Sean Jansen, whom I miss terribly already. They are both angels keeping watch over the people that loved them. Mike would love this!

  • Thanks my dear! Yes, Sean is another of those beautiful souls that left us their beautiful works and memories here on the site.
    I miss Mike alot, and find myslef wishing he was still around all the time. I just got back from looking at his site and it made me smile… and tugged at my heart at the same time. The memories we have will last for all time, and the images will as well. xo

    Tracy, this is the way to keep ol’ Mikey alive, & no mistake. I think of him regularly, & as I think I’ve said somewhere before, Ray & I frequently run across things, especially humorous &/or off-the-wall stuff, along with all kinds of historical & botanical bits & pieces that elicit the same response from us that you speak of here… Mike Would Love This…. He was a singular guy; not many like him. Cosmos is among my favorites, too, as you know, & this is a terrific image. Well done. I haven’t been on the Bubble much in the past few days… just had cataract surgery on my right eye & am about to have the other one done on Thursday. No ill effects, but it takes a while, & by Friday I’ll probably be completely cross-eyed. The computer screen is not particularly friendly at the moment! But I had to comment on this wonderful post. Cheers to you & Les, & keep the memories flowing!

  • BIG HUGS!!! Sending you warm thoughts for quick healing my dear!!
    Yes, Mikey was a wonderful fella for sure eh? Sigh… I think of him in my wanderings as well, but, I really feel that he is watching over us with a smile on his face and getting a fantastic view of all the beauty from above…and I feel him close sometimes, when I look at a cosmo or wildflower…or when I think of a quirky joke… so many other times as well, ya know? :O]

    Take care of yourself my friend, and get better real soon!! :O] ox
