Header Challenge 09-03-11 = Friends.

Header Challenge 09-03-11  =  Friends.
First I would like to offer Lanny our regrets and sorrow of her loss on her Friend -Pet dog.
Thinking of you Lanny - no worries if you dont make it to post.

See and listen to my Youtube song - non other than 
The Beatles --
Hello fellow Headbangers - tis my choice this week and its "Friends"
My Header is all about our closest friends - with-out which we would be at a loss.
They are there for a shoulder to cry on, to support us thru thick n thin, to smile and laugh together,
You dont have to be rich to be wealthy - all you need is "Friends" like we have.
My Posts are as follows
Meeting of Blogging Friends
Post no 1
DW and our fellow blogger Rune E  within a photo of Bergen Norway, we had a cruise around Norway and Rune showed us his wonderful city of Bergen, it really rained most of the day, but cleared up later.
A wonderful Guide and a wonderful time Rune gave us.
Thanks my friend.
Post no 2.
Non other than a Headbanger Gailsman himself and hiswonderful DW Gail.
We met not far from us - at The Dirty Duck Pub alongside the Grantham Canal.
We had a meal then took a walk along the canal, great time - and we got some great photos too.
Thanks Friends.
 Post 3.
We met from across the big Pond - non-other than Katney (The Pink Lady herself) and her DH.
We met at Lincoln and as you see, we saw the inside of Lincoln Cathedral together, we had a very snappy(with our cameras of course) and Happy time. They were on their travels thru the UK.
Thanks Friends.

Post 4.
Here you see the Castle of Holy Island - Lindesfarne, here we met up with Ju-North and her DH,
Ju-North is a brill artist with her photos.
A perfect day to meet with friends, sunny and bright for our photos but then it had to rain, then it poured,but we were in the pub-when it poured,lol.
A pleasure to meet you both and we had a great time too
Thanks Friends.

Last post-man delivers
This last post - is to all our blogging friends(to many to mention)who we havent met up with.

May we all be Friends forever.
to ALL our Blogging Friends.

Lindsfarne Gospels are a decorated manuscript wonder and they came from there. Nice post. I enjoyed seeing all your friends who are bloggers too.

katney said...

And an incredible time was had by all. Glad we made it last summer as I'm limping about with bursitis currently. Here's to friends!!!

Great shots of your friends! They are indeed the true treasures in our life.

I keep wishing that one day I could make it out there for a visit, too. Of course, if you ever get to travel this way, I'd treat you to some good Chicago foods... Great pizza, Italian beef, amazingly delicious hot dogs, etc.

Jinksy said...

Blogging friends are truly just as precious thank you for reminding us all.
Looking forward to meeting up at Belton soon.

How can I but give you a great THANK YOU for the mention I get in this post :-)

You have really gone to the heart of the matter - what are both friends and blogging for. It is an honour to call you - My Friend.

Lanny said...

I do believe this post is in need of a pint! Nice tribute to some of your friends. Blog friends that you have had the privelidge of actually meeting!
You do such clever things with your photos.

Oh and thanks for the good word. I am a bit of a wreck today. And my one dog is a bit tired of being cuddled.

Be friendly and you will have friends. :)

Dar said...

Great idea, inserting your friends where you walked and laughed together. Sweet of you to include those of us who love you but know we may never meet personally, still feeling as tho we have.
Looking back, I love the goose getting loose of yesterdays feathers. So cool to have captured that moment.
BlessYourHeart and Thanks for dropping in.

joey said...

Gattina said...

That's funny I wrote about my "real" and "virtual" friends and friendship on my Writercramps blog today.
Friendship is so important to me because friends you choose, family you inherit. My oldest friend I am still in contact with dates from 1951 !! We were neighbors in Bonn, then neighbors in Brussels (our fathers worked together) I stayed here she went back to Germany, but we see each other regularly and meanwhile we are grandmas !
Last year when she came to Waterloo she brought me back a book I had lent her in 1953 when we were 10 years old ! Better late than never, lol !

PS. Sorry but my Word verification now is : farts ! :)!

Ann Nichols said...

This is such a lovely posting!! Yes, friends are such treasures! (I am really sorry about your friend who lost her doggie... I was at that spot just last summer and even before coming here now was looking at photos of my doggie love...)The Lincoln Cathedral is magnificent! Too bad it's not called St. Nicholas Cathedral! :) And your of the more special ones! You put a lot of work into this posting and I really appreciate it! Thanks, my new "blogging friend!"

Martha (MM) said...
