Getting To Know You: A Walk on the Spooky Side

I haven’t done the Getting to Know You Questions over at Create a Connection for a while now, because for whatever reason they just haven’t been things I’ve wanted to talk about (although I really appreciate the effort the monthly hosts put into that feature and I read it every week).
But this week the questions […]

Come Out and Play with Me

(…and bring your dollies three, climb up my apple tree…”…I used to love to do that little slappy-hand song! :-))
I need to go to Lexington today and I wish a bunch of you could be here too. We could go out for a nice lunch somewhere and then visit Mecca the big shoe store, and […]

Blogging’s so Bright I’ve Got to Wear Shades

Over at Create a Connection this week, Charlotte is hosting the Getting to Know You feature and she wants to know more about our blogging habits. So here we go…
When did you begin your first blog and what inspired you to do so?

Time Capsule

Yesterday’s post was a bit of a blast from the past (and thank you for the lovely comments on it, y’all!) and today I’m continuing that theme. This month’s host for the Getting to Know You day at Create a Connection is Charlotte and she’s asking us some questions about the past and the future. […]
