This week... 

  • My father-in-law is having his ceremony for his promotion to Chief (Air Force) on Sunday. That's exciting and very respectable! Salute!
  • And last but definitely NOT least...

Oh, and yes, this blogfest is international. So what are you ghouls waiting for? Sign up using the Linky Thing below and spread the word!

  4. Okay- now I need to think of a story.

  5. I love those pictures, I already have a few ideas for my piece :)

  6. It's always great to find new ways to enjoy our interests. :) I'll be thinking on that blogfest. Not so sure yet. Writer’s Mark

  7. Saw this questionnaire on facebook. Best of luck with the blogfest.

  8. Ooh, what a fun blogfest! I'd love to participate, but the only kind of writing I do anymore is of the comic strip variety, so I'll have to sit this one out and see what everyone else comes up with!

  9. Congrats to your father in law ;)

  10. This is when I wished blogger was more friendly to pre-written posts. (Allowing you to grab the urls before published.) *sigh* I'm so in, but won't be able to add to the linky for a while. Super awesome.


I heart me some good comments... and pumpkin spice latte's too!
