A year of My Friend Rosey

It was on January 9 last year that I wrote my first Rosey story. I knew from the comments I received that she would have to become a permanent part of my blog.

So I thought I’d scan through the comments left at the bottom of my Rosey stories and relive the best.
.
One of the first was from Annie Elf and she said...
Omigosh Keith, this is a riot. it's 8:25 in the a.m. and I’ve just settled into my desk and the day's work. my day can only get better from here. Rosey is a jewel. I will love reading more of her adventures.
A few days later I wrote another one about Rosey’s naivety. It got a load of comments, like this one from Morgatron

Morgy loves Rosy ... and all people like her.

That cute Rosey of yours keeps you (and me in this case) entertained.Cheeky Rosey. Can't wait till her next adventure.

When I wrote about Rosey playing darts Dickiebo said...

If she's on a 'Free Transfer', then we'll take her. Please send to: The Beaufort Arms, Mumbles. Thanks.DB. Darts Capitano.

This was a nice one. It was a in response to her biography which I published in February . UL said...

I am already imagining the prince charming who would marry her and awaiting the happily ever-after :) Go go Rosey :)
When I told you about the time Rosey made a mess of eating a meal Tory said...

Rosey and I have a lot in common!! You can always tell by the end of the day, what I've eaten all day long. One time in a very fancy restaurant, I ordered the escargot and had a heck of a time with those tong thingies. The snail shot right out of them, traced a trail of garlic butter over the front of my silk dress and jumped off over my left shoulder. I did not skip a beat, I picked up the next one as if it weren't me who had just done that! I have no idea where it landed.
And Bellamocha said...
Why do your meals out sound so much more fun than mine??!!I'm warning you, you'll have a whole crowd of us hunting you and Rosey down for a good meal!
I wrote about Rosey’s excitable pony and Little Wing said...

I am absolutely rolling on the floor laughing!Oh that naughty little stallion of hers!!!!!!!!Grew a fifth leg, BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!!!!

When she got a new job as a school classroom assistant, Jadey said...

What another great Rosey post. She is always up to something now isn't she? Looks like Rosey has found her niche this time working with the kids and getting to be one. Can't think of a better job.

Rosey’s lessons in first aid attracted quite a few remarks. Janet said...

My children are wondering why I'm giggling so hard. You should put all of Rosey's adventures into a book, "The World Through Rosey-Colored Glasses."

Rebicmel said...

I am laughing so hard my ribs are hurting, what a sight lol. OMG this is great.
Giggles said...
Keith I love the antics of Rosey! What an interesting character...are you sure she's not blond! Just jesting! She is for sure precious! The naivety is priceless! Love it!
A few months back I thought I’d give Rosey a rest. I’d written so much about her and I thought people might have heard enough of her. How wrong I was! When she came back I was left in no mind what people thought of her.

Paisley said...

I have missed Rosey and I am thrilled she is back and seems ever ready to provide us with a reading delight every so often....

Gautami tripathy said...

I am so glad Rosey is back from her vacation. I have missed her so much. Tell her not to go anywhere without informing us!
Missy said...

Rosey is so much a part of your writing. It's like there is a void when we don't hear about her!!
Rosey took up knitting with fairly predictable results and a record number of comments.

Granny Smith said...

I'm a great fan of Rosey! Her stories are riveting. (Remember "Rosy the Riveter" from WWII?) Your sense of humor (humour?) is wonderfully entertaining
Shadow said...
This is precious! Are you sure you're not making this all up?!?!?!
anthonynorth said...
I suppose she was quite a knit-wit.I know, but I couldn't resist.

Tammie Lee said...
Oh my gosh, your story is wonderful. I even chuckled out loud. Thank you.

Jennifer Hicks said...

Funny that she didn't notice the sweater unravelling! sounds like a piece of contemporary performance art to me - if I were in the pub, I might have thought that was intentional! b said...

This story made me laugh and brought tears to my eyes. Oh your dear Rosey! My friend's name is Carole Ann. She is such a dear and does most of her shopping at goodwill industries. But she pulls it off...with a lot of style! In November Rosey started her own blog – Roseys Posey

marja said...

Rosey is a real star and it is fantastic that she now shines on her own blog. I had a quick peek and she sure is adorable
Rosey made a few unfortunate comments to complete strangers in the pub a few weeks back.

Giggles said...

haha this whole post made me chuckle as always! What a character, gotta love her! "And it was then that Rosey saw a rather unfortunate spot on the end of the girl’s nose.........." made me laugh out loud!!I suppose Rosey will read this. Hope she isn't offended!

Shadow said...

Oh dear Rosey... mind you, I’ve done that baby faux pas too. now i don't congratulate anyone until I’m clearly told they're pregnant, finished!

Lucy said...

I just ADORE roseys style! she is a hoot!

Janet said...

That reminds me of some comedian (maybe Jerry Seinfeld) who said, "Never ask a woman if she is pregnant unless you actually see a baby emerging from her at that moment."Poor Rosey. I have those days myself.
I’ll finish off with a couple of my favourites.
. Rinkly Rimes said...

Rosey sounds like a delightful liability! A friend we should all have!
Rebecca said...

I’ve always loved your tales on Rosey. I actually just put her site on my sidebar. There is a bit of innocence about her, a child-like quality that makes her very charming.
And Whitesnake said...

I rang a pizza place and asked if they deliver they said yes so I asked for a large pizza with liver and pineapple he said they dont do liver I said ya told me ya did........!

I could go on and on but I think that's enough to be getting on with! Right now I'm off to buy her a drink or two!
