Shoot Me NowCheese

When I saw today’s writing challenge subject “Cheese,” I immediately thought of blogger Nicky from We Work for Cheese.  Nicky was a lovely, vibrant and incredibly funny woman and mother who died far too young of cancer.

Nicky loved cheese and wrote about it often.  She once wrote about Cotswold, an English pub cheese I had never heard of.  It took a few days of searching but I finally found it.  They key to that cheese is eating it at room temperature.  At first bite I thought, “Meh.  It’s OK.”  But after chewing and savoring it I realized that Cotswold was addictive.  A bit of tang… a bit of onion…. Mmmmmmm.

in memory of nicky

In loving memory of Nicky, I would like to share a link to a cheese poem she once wrote in a blog writing challenge.  Here is to you, Nicky… and to Cotswold!

    Katherine, I clicked over on the link Make it Cheesy and read Nicky’s poem. OMG…it was faaaaaabulous! So clever and creative. I also read many of the comments and didn’t realize that I knew so many of the bloggers who knew Nicky. I also read the last post she wrote and got very teary-eyed. She seemed like such an awesome person. I’m sorry I never got the chance to blog with her.

    Thanks so much for sharing this touching tribute. Love the photograph!

    • Yes… her last post… heartbreaking. I know someone who talked to her a lot on the phone… she was an incredible woman. I so wish I had met her!

  • I read her poem too and now I’ve got that song stuck in my head. I loved the poem though. Very clever.

    Have a fabulous day, Katherine. ☺

    Yesterday I heard about Nicky for the first time, over at P.J.’s blog. Today I look at this picture and I feel like I see a friend. She sounds like a wonderful person.
    Let’s make it cheesy for her.

  • Katherine, thank you for sharing that. So many good memories of the 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing. I miss her. I think she would be glad we are continuing what she started.

  • Oh…I often think of Nicky and continue to miss her. She was such a good blogging friend to me (along with Mike). Sigh…She was the epitome of fun and sweetness.
