Today is Wink's Birthday

Wink and her portrait
Wink Satine Lo-Ri. You may remember when she first came to live with us, if not, here's where she made her first debut on the blog. Since that day, I can't begin to count the amount of photos I've taken of her. Well, I could on Flickr, but let's not.

In honor of her third birthday, and AdRi's upcoming birthday, I commissioned a portrait of Wink by an artist. An artist who blogs and is named Radio Gretchen. I've been bartering some kitchen skills, and she is one of them. Can you believe it? You may recognize the portrait from Wink's awesome Magnum PI photo. It is now immortalized in a painting.

How's that for a birthday? Next up? Wink's birthday party....

Oh, great idea for a gift and the execution couldn't be better. Radio Gretchen did a fabulous job!

Happy birthday to Wink. I can't believe it's already been three years!

P.S. For Rusty's birthday, we got him a piece of duck jerky (it cost 20 cents). Now I feel like a tightwad!

Wow, what an awesome portrait! I want to have my babies memorialized in paint, as well. Thanks for the heads up about the artist.

Happy Birthday, Wink! From your neighbors in NEPO.
