To my friends & everyone else on Desktop Nexus,

I am the bearer of some sad news.

Betsey Butler, a member of Desktop Nexus since September of 2008, passed away on November 20th, 2016. I did not find this out until last Sunday, January 22nd.

Even if you did not know Betsey, please read on. I have something to say that you may never have thought of before; something that could help you and many others.

Most, if not all of us, have made some good friends on Desktop Nexus. Some of those friends may mean so much to you that you've even exchanged email addresses with them and have become pen pals, (or perhaps I should say email pals.)

Betsey and I were email pals. We wrote back & forth on a regular basis. Often it was just short notes. We had days where we wrote each other as much as 10 times. Sometimes 3 or 4 days would go by before we wrote again, but we always kept in touch.

On October 24, 2016, I wrote Betsey that I was about to go to Canada for the first time in 25 years, and that I'd let her know all about it when I got back. She wrote back;

"Have a great day!"

That was the last time that I ever heard from her.

I kept writing her, and got more and more concerned when I didn't get any replies. Betsey had dealt with some health problems, i.e. she had what she called a "small stroke" and had to go live in an assisted living center for awhile, but then she got her own apartment again. I began to wonder if she'd had another stroke and was back in assisted living with no computer access or something. It never occurred to me that she might have passed away.

I finally found out that she had from another one of her friends who was just as shocked as I was about it. My friend read it on her Facebook timeline. No details were given.

Whoever may still be reading this;

Please, if at all possible give a trusted friend or family member access to your Desktop Nexus account; your Face book account; your email account. You matter. People care for you. People will notice when you are missing.

Please have someone lined up to notify people, just in case you leave this earth. None of us knows the day or the hour when that might happen... If you pass on, people will wonder and eventually worry about what happened to you.

One Desktop Nexus member who did think to do that was Sparky/Kate Hatheway. Her sisters were able to access her Desktop Nexus account and let everybody know. That was such a wonderful to do...

https://my.desktopnexus.com/katehatheway/

I wrote to Betsey for 14 weeks without hearing from her. It hurts to realize now that I was writing to someone who would never read what I had to say.

I have been in mourning since last Sunday when I found out. That is why I've been wearing this wallpaper of Betsey's on my profile for the past week. (By the time you read this, I'll be wearing one of the one's I made for Betsey.I wish I could wear more than one wallpaper at a time!)



I put aside some abstract wallpapers I was going to upload last Sunday. Instead I have spent this week creating two wallpapers in memory of Betsey Butler.

This one is my mourning wallpaper...


I was only going to make the one wallpaper, but I decided that another one was needed. To the best of my knowledge, Betsey was a Christian and had Jesus in her heart. She is now in a better place...so I created this happier wallpaper in her memory also.



Please choose either of my two wallpapers and put your thoughts and memories of Betsey in the comments. I would love to read them and possibly learn some things about her that I didn't know before. :)

One more thing. Betsey fanned 387 members here. I've fanned only 159. If she has fanned anybody that I have not, and they are still active friends of yours, please let them know about Betsey too.

Thank you for reading this...and God Bless...all of you! This sad experience has made me realize just how special you are...

With much love,

Elaine

Father Time & I are dropping by to see you & say goodbye to



Let's say hello to 2017 instead! :D



Yahooooooo! It's a brand new year! Be sure to party and celebrate it to the max! :D

Best warm wishes for you in the New Year. I'm looking forward to more Collies, more Cows, more Wonderful Wallpapers, more Smiles, more Kindness, and more FUN on DN with you! :D :D :D

Love & Hugs,

Hi..... I just want to stop by and leave you some Joy:



A little (wallpaper) present:



A blessing;


And to wish you a wonderful, meaningful, Christmas! :D


Thank you so much for being a part of my life this year at Desktop Nexus... my favoritest place ever! :) :) :)

Love & Hugs,

Elaine :)

PS. And last but not least, your very own decorated cow! :D

Well... I thought he was a cow.... :P oh well...:D


CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   11/21/16 at 1:19am

Hi Everybody! :D

I hope that you are doing well, and have many things to be thankful for. Desktop Nexus is a big one for me, and I bet it is for you also! :)

Another thing that I'm very thankful for is Autumn. The trees are so beautiful when their leaves turn... in my "neck of the woods" it is a wonderful feast for the eyes. Perfect for a color freak like me! :D

One thing that made this Autumn truly exciting for me is that I got to go to CANADA for one glorious day! I've been trying to get there for years! (I bet that all of you Canadians are either applauding, or are thinking that I'm just a little bit nuts... lol)

The three wallpapers below were all taken in Canada, 2 by me, and one by my husband. I've written a journal post about the day we were in Canada. I hope you'll have a look at it, if only to see that I'm not totally nuts...! Here is the link to it;

https://my.desktopnexus.com/CollieSmile/journal/how-i-fin...

I know that Canadians celebrated their Thanksgiving Day back in October. "U.S.A. Thanksgiving" is coming up this Thursday, November 24th. I hope to get by your profiles with Thanksgiving greetings... but things can get crazily busy at this time of year. So just in case I don't make it, I want to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving today. For those of you not from the USA, I hope that you have a blessed day also, and many more to come.

Thank you all, for being such a wonderful part of my life!:D

Hugs,

Elaine :)

Hi Everybody! :D

I hope you are all doing well, and having a good Summer (or Winter, depending on where you live.) The drought seems to be coming to an end in Michigan, we are finally getting some rain. There are more patches of green than brown in my lawn for the first time since early May!

Unfortunately, a lot of the Southern USA is getting Too Much Rain... I hope all of you that live down South are managing to hang in there & stay afloat. I've been praying for you & I'm sure others have also.

Speaking of my greener lawn brings cows to mind...grazing cows, that is. But actually, I don't get to hang around with cows much, since I don't live in farm country. The closest that I get to cows is when I make it to a Fair. I love fairs, and the farm animals are my favorite part!

Unfortunately, I doubt I'll get to a fair this year. Although I'm walking on my newly healed foot, I still don't have much stamina for walking or standing very long. The cow walls below are actually from a Fair that I went to 2 years ago.

Last month I happened to drop in on DN's Cow Group. I was amazed, and saddened to see that there were only 12 wallpapers in it! The last time one was added (one of mine) was in 2014. (There are now 16 wallpapers as I've just added 4 more.)

So....welcome to Cow Group Open House/Invitation Day! :D

I've been checking around & see that many of you have cow/cattle walls you could add to this group. In fact, I may drop by some profiles and point out some you could add... I've seen some really neat ones! Don't wait for me to ask you though... feel free to join now! :)

https://www.desktopnexus.com/groups/cows/

I hope you feel mooooooved to join up. Have a beautiful day, and keep an eye out for cows! If you spot any, herd them straight into the cow group! :D

Hi Everybody...

A lot if not most of you haven't heard from me in eons... I've been tied up with work, my husband's new hip (replacement) and other things. I think that I've been busier than a bee:


Please read my latest Journal entry. I've really missed you all!

LOOK! IT'S A CURE FOR YOUR WINTER BLUES!!!!

By any chance have you had More Than Enough Winter this year? (Or maybe if you are from Australia or someplace like that, you are tired of hearing all of us Americans and Canadians moaning about it?

Well, these wallpapers just might put an end, or at least a temporary halt, to your winter blues. Even if you think the walls and their story are off the wall (like me! :P) at least listen to the Boogie Woogie Link in the descriptions. The Music should put a smile on any winter weary face.

Have Fun! :D :D :D :D :D :D

It's been a challenging year for me. I am so glad that I had you and other Desktop Nexus friends to help me through it!

Whether you left a friendly word on my profile, or voted & commented on one of my wallpapers, you've put a warm glow in my heart and a smile on my face. Thank you so much for being part of my life on DN.

Thank you so much for enriching my life. May good times be coming your way in the New Year.

Elaine :)

Hi Everybody!

It feels so great to be able to leave greetings for all of you at last! I have been on DN, but very sporadically. I bet that some of you have been wondering if I fell off of my profile page!

I've been crazy busy, for the past few weeks, and I've had pain issues to deal with too. Thank goodness the pain is over. I had a tooth that got infected and had to have special surgery on it. I had to deal with it for 2 weeks, and the pain medication wasn't helping much. It turned out that this tooth was 3x as infected as the X-ray showed. I'm feeling a lot better now. :)

I've had to put in more hours at my part time job lately. My work computer died a couple of weeks ago. We ended up getting a new used one to replace it. I have a lot of catch up work to do now, so I'm working extra hours until we are more caught up.

I had thought I'd be doing a journal entry today, but if I want to say hi to you all, I will have to skip it this time, because I have to leave the house in an hour. Knowing me, I probably would have gone into too much detail about my tooth anyhow. lol So maybe you should consider yourselves lucky! :D

About these wallpapers--- Two of them are of my dog Katie at a Doggy Halloween costume party. For those of you who aren't from a country that celebrates Halloween, you can see how daft Americans can be about this holiday. Believe it or not, Costume parties for dogs are common over here during this time of year!

Again, I am so glad to be on DN... It is one of my favorite, places to be! I've made so many good friends here!:D You all are the people who make this place so much fun to be. Thank you!!! :D

CollieSmile/Elaine :)

PS. May all of you:

Hi Ms. Dianna, I've been a bad girl lately. Am extremely late in answering my mail on dn. I'm so sorry. I absolutely love the green frog. I'm having some health issues trying to take care of and internet keeps going down, very frustrating. You know how it goes. James was up last week and i thought i would get to spend some time with him and ended up sleeping most of it away. Bless his heart , he was very understanding. Hopefully, when he is up next month, i'll be better and can spend more time with him. Hope you are doing well and have missed dn. Just not enough time in the day. Have you ever had that problem? lol Lots of hugs sent your way. Keeping you in my prayers. That i do keep up. lol Love Marjorie
