THE HISTORY OF IT’S A MYSTERY
(Or How I Came About Having This Account!)
_A long long time ago, back when Foo was Pokey, a daughter named Gigi invited her mom to play a game on Facebook. That is how an account became known as Gigismom. On this account there was a Pokey Rottie named Fred. Now the daughter left her account after awhile so as all moms do, the mom tended to the neglected Chi named Petunia. Gigismom invited a couple of friends on Facebook to play with her. Only one stayed and her name was Susan. This was her account. The account was originally Susan, and numbers I don’t remember, then she changed it to Kingdom Foo. Her first pet was Sammy Girl, then Binks, then Annabell, then Angelica and last but not least Breeze. All are here except Breeze. I have no idea what happened to her. I can only hope she is being cared for somewhere and the owner just deleted all her pictures so I cannot find her.
One day I had problems with my facebook account and could not log in here. I tried going through the website itself with no luck. Tried for days and just couldn’t get in.
Now you must know something about me I am not computer litterate and I have absolutely no patience for issues such as not being able to log in somewhere! I have an abundance of patience with animals, children, and the elderly but when it comes to rude teenagers or adults or computers I have zip zero zilch in the tolerance!
Now that I have vented back to the history lesson! So, since I couldn’t get in to Gigismom my very smart friend Susan said just open a new one. So I did and I called it LoveBogieandBacall because of my love for the old movies. If it is B&W you can be sure I am watching it! I had a black & white of Bogie and Bacall for my profile picture. I was first friends with PottersClay and CocoasPappa. CP was the first champion in working very hard and long hours getting all the “losties” onto his perfectly organized profile page for all of us to visit and tend to the wee ones. Then I became friends with Drdoolittle, Marie, Pattycake and Peaco in that order. They affectionately dubbed me lvbb. How I miss that group! They told it like it was and didn’t care what anyone thought and boy did we have fun! I always said to them they were my smile and laugh every morning when I got up and at the end of some very long nights at work. They are 5 hrs ahead so They would come on leave me a silly note to wake up to and then when I came home at night they would give me all the updates and good and bad of Foo which later Marie dubbed Pooville! They would purchase the good items for me because it seemed everything came out at night when I was working. Seems to still happen that way. Rares are gone before I know they are in the Mart! I am rambling SO VERY SORRY! That isn’t part of the history lesson!
So, LVBB was started around March of 2009 after the big lock-out. All the pets were named after my favorite actors. First was Lauren, she is on Tailends acct, with Marlon Brando. Then came Bogie. He along with Elizabeth Taylor and Spencer Tracey are on Deb-Loves-Animals that we can’t get to. Jimmy Stewart who, thanks to the most terrific PIGLETSMOM who has preserved so many pets from the past in her fotos, had the picture of Jimmy and he was in the shelter! This is the second time I was able to get him out. I met him the first time on CPs acct as a lostie. Then when he went to shelter I shopped for over 75hrs(remember when we could do that?!) and found him! Well I got you again Jimmy my love!
This is a gift I just got from PigletsMom! Super picture of Jimmy! She always makes me laugh!
I KNOW RAMBLING AGAIN! I CAN’T HELP MYSELF SOMETIMES!
Now, I played on Foo until the debacle of changing hands went on and this place was down more then it was up. EVERYONE up in arms people just up and quitting left and right, it was one HUGE mess on here. 40dede worked so hard to get things straightened out didn’t she? Poor thing all her hard work and what did she get for it? She is gone, another good soul left. Well that is when I was getting frustrated. As I said in the beginning NO PATIENCE! I got mad and sold off my pets transferred stuff over to this account, which I was running now as poor Susan is ill and can no longer play. Then with one click LVBB no longer existed! I came over here where there were only a few friends, changed the name to Its-A-Mystery because I wanted it to be just that!
Then in September of 2010 Labor Day Weekend I had a stroke the very weekend after I attended my 40th HS Reunion. It was a long recovery from there to be able to walk use my left arm and think clearly. My dear friend Marie kept the Mystery going for me logging in each and every day to earn my gems and not loose the STUPID bonding badge or bars! She is a good one that Mrs.!
_After awhile she let super champion of the “losties” Carrie take over the account. She kept it going from there rescuing pets right and left! One day I logged in and what a surprise I had! All these new babies! She graciously gave the account back to me found homes for all the pets that weren’t mine and some that were.
I then stayed with the account even after the BIG APRIL 26th DAY! But sadly in May of 2012 I lost my dearest Uncle Chalie. No his name isn’t Charlie it is Chalie! I had a very hard time with that. Then in July of 2012 I lost my very dear friend of 50 years Bobbie , he married my best friend who I have known for over 50 years, we all went to school and graduated together. That just sent me over the edge so I let the account freeze and my dear friend DEBBIMAXLOONYCLUB tended to the crew the best she could. Thank you Debs! I would also like to thank you for your faithfulness in sending all the emails you did during that time
And this brings me to the end of this very long and babbling and most likely very boring history lesson of Its-A-Mystery! I came back this July and am so very glad I did. So many good friends are gone. There are still a few left and I am making some very wonderful new ones. I tend to get in comfort zones and don’t do change well. I am glad, very glad, to be making new friends. This just made me think of my Brownie motto from some very long long long years ago!
MAKE NEW FRIENDS BUT KEEP THE OLD. ONE IS SILVER AND THE OTHER GOLD!
SIDE NOTE: In case you were wondering what ever happened to the poor neglected Chi named Petunia, she is now called Mary Higgins Clark and is right here safe and sound! No thanks to that neglectful daughter of mine!
I would like to thank ANITA who did the beautiful seasonal FOO GRAPHICS, THE FOO CARETAKER AWARD AND ALL THE LEVEL AWARDS. She has done a beatutiful job on the FOO WEBPAGE! That took hours, days and weeks I am sure! So a very big thank you from me! I love using them. When I eventually get my wish list up you can be sure it came from there!
Thanks FooKayla for this beautiful bling graphic!
