FOWC with Fandango — Orphan

On January 18th 2018 I became an orphan when my Mum died, having lost my Dad on May 13th 1996.
At the age of 61, it was a sobering thought, and I was glad to have had both of my parents when I was growing up.

This year, we became aware of three orphans on the lake, only one of which has survived.
We watched as adults shunned her away and she made her own way in life, never giving up, standing up to the bullies, and claiming her own food.
She is now as big as the adults and thriving well.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
