Sherry Padgett sponsored this most amazing of days, the day we celebrate our beloved boss’s honorary birthday (of course, we celebrate Jamie herself every day)! It’s what’s known around these parts (and really all over the world, to her fans and followers) as Jamieween!!:
“My earliest introduction to CSNW – just last year – was watching a YouTube of Jamie reading her first boot book; and I was immediately in love. I went back to the Blog’s 2008 beginning and read every blog post, watched every video, like it was the Best Book Ever! Love and Hallow-hoots to all .. but especially Jamie, who is still and will always be the best Boss I ever had. I want to sponsor her special day to make it her happiest Jamie-Ween ever! Please give that girlfriend some pears on me. :)”
Sherry, this is amazing. I think you belong to an elite club of blog readers at this point! I did the same thing when I first learned of the sanctuary, but I only had a mere couple of years to backtrack through at the time, so your love of the chimpanzees and dedication to reading ALL THOSE POSTS (!!) brings a huge smile to our faces. Jamie is such a special chimpanzee person. Thank you so very much for thinking of her and helping to provide our brilliant resident woman of mystery, intrigue, and occasionally fear-inducing trickery, with the best birthday yet!
Naturally, as one of the biggest celebrations of the year here at the sanctuary, party prep is underway in the chimp house, so be sure to tune in later today to see the shenanigans!
Happy Birthday, Jamie! We couldn’t love you and your unique, beautiful, creative, crazy-intelligent self any more. We are all so grateful you are in our lives, and honored to be part of yours.
Happy Jamieween everyone!!
Amazing pumpkin past:
To date, no Jamieween would have been complete without The Great Pumpkin Thief, Jody! Will she make an appearance this year??:
This most beautiful birthday woman, Jamie. We love you, James. <3
