It's Time To Congratulate PATRICIA BARTCH, the 195th POTW!
7/1/2009 9:27:00 AM
             Congratulations to the 195th POTW:  Patricia Bartch!
Thanks Kathleen and Thomas.  You are 2 leaders on Adland and we could not do without you. I'm grateful to my friends for nominating me for my 2nd time of POTW.  I think the Person of the Week is a great award and I'm proud to represent this week.
I've been on the Internet reading, writing etc since 2000 and I've been a member on Adland since 2004. My first friends here were Kathy Hamilton, Pauline, Sharon Lee and LaNell. Thanks ladies for being my girl friends.
 Here's a little about me. I'm married and have 2 children... lol ... my cat girls Sophie and Snickers. I love all three of my family a lot! My interests: Hubby and I like to go "treasure hunting". LOL, some people say it's "just junking". We go to estate sales, flea markets and garage sales to find  collectibles and antiques.  I collect ladies vintage hankies, vintage crocheted doilies, quilts and vintage glass Christmas Ornament.   

In 1987 a friend set me up on a blind date with "Steve." On our first date, we went to a Music by Moonlight concert. After that first date, we just kept on dating exclusively and were married a year later. Our 20th wedding anniversary was last year. Steve is the LOVE OF MY LIFE.

We live on a "floating home" -- What is that you ask?  It's a "house" that is sits on HUGE, old growth logs and is moored to a common dock. We get to our house by walking down a ramp.  It is just wonderful in the summer to gaze out at the beautiful river!

We were not blessed to have children, so our cats (Sophie and Snickers) are our 2 kids (Soph is the black cat... and Snick is the Tortie).  Hubby is in Wood & metal recycling & construction, I'm his office manager.  

My favorite hobbies are reading (women's devotional books), history (mostly Great Britain), arts and crafts, sewing, quilting, little bit of scrapbooking. I LOVE to garden, I grow pots and pots of flowers and veggies. This summer I planted 6 potsl of tomatoes and they are growing pretty huge. Last year our tomatoes were  wonderful.  We had tomatoes nearly every day and I made lots of salsa. I also grew lettuce and herbs.  The basil took over!!  Lucky we like PESTO!!  I thank God for giving us the good weather so hubby and I can have salads all summer long. 

The cats and I watch hubby fish - he throws a worm in the river and reels them in. It's relaxing after a day on the keyboard to read on the deck with Sophie & Snickers and watch the ducks. I've never seen a cat who loves to fish like Snickers does!  When hubby catches a small fish, Snickers is RIGHT THERE.  She'd "fish all day" if we'd let her!  We also catch CRAWDADS and cook them up in BIG pots and have my family over for our annual crawdad feed. 

Here are picture of our cats and a picture of Snickers in her "heyday" when we let her carry the fish into the house.   

I'm also interested in digital photography and lile to put my pictures in my forums and Adland photo gallery. 


My favorite businesses are UBIEE and JERKY DIRECT. I'm also a free member in Wholefood Farmacy.  I extend my thanks to Linda Harvey for telling me about Jerky Direct in 2008. I LOVE Jerky Direct.

Bonjour Kathleen and Thomas!

Congrats to you Pat, my musketeer friend. Woohoo! Way to go.

You justly deserve this honour and it is an honour and a pleasure for me to work with you in The 6 Musketeers Agency.

You have such galant knights to accompany you too.

Congrats to Bob and Nick. Take care of our Queen Pat.

Angel cuddles,


ps What are crawdads?

My pretty friend Patty!
I am so very happy that you are honored this week as Person of the week.
You will understand this-
This week I had to start feeding a cat that is likely Cali's sister in her former life before becoming a fur person-and her fatherless kitten; living in my yard and my shed and my basement.
The mom is the spitting image of Snickers!
About 2 years old and I call her Sneaky.
So-needless to say I have been channeling in you and Snickers all week!
