An Award and Announcement!

Hey Y’all!

Well, I seem to be getting back into the daily grind of life and thought I would let you know. I still think of Dad (and now Mom) several times a day but it is worse when I go to bed. No, I don’t expect to completely wipe them from my mind, but I’d like to fall asleep with something other than the last time I saw each of them. I have much to do and have been keeping busy and it has helped a lot.

Since the Guest Diva spot on Flergs’ design team has been over, I have been working on the next big project: A Fall Kit that will be revealed on October 1 during the Fall Splendor Blog Hop. So far I have 16 papers and 24 elements and much more on the way. I hope you will all check back to celebrate Fall with us on the 1st!

Some happy news: The lovely Ms. Rose of Simply Rose has given me a blog award and I must do it justice by nominating others to pass it on to. Since I haven’t been hopping much lately, I haven’t found any new blogs to honor, but my all time favorite is still M. Kate of La Vie Est Belle whose blog is a treasure of photos and information about her side of the world, Malaysia. You can always count on M. Kate to keep your interest even when her photos mount into the teens! She needs to do a travel book and that would certainly make her rich! So here’s to my friend M. Kate of LA VIE EST BELLE: You Rock M. Kate!

Here are the rules:
1. The winner can put the logo on their blog (I did)
2. Link the person you received your award from (yes)
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs (No, not yet)
4. Put links of those blogs on yours. (yes)
5. Leave a message on the blogs of the person you’ve nominated. (I will)

Here are a couple more photos I found in Dad’s stash. I need to get back to scanning and documenting them and I will as soon as I finish the Fall Kit.

That's my Dad during WWII. Wasn't he a hunk! I can definitely see why my Mom followed him to Richmond and didn't let go!

That's me with my next door neighbor at his birthday party around 1950; I believe I was around four. Don't I look like I wish Jerry would stop posing and just cut the blasted cake? Looks like it's taking everything in me not to just take a big bite, LOL!

I'd like to thank my loyal blog fans for sticking with me even though I've been MIA more than being here over the past three months: THANK YOU! I'd also like to thank you for all the prayers and good thoughts you have sent up for me and mine: THANK YOU! YOU MAKE MY DAY!

Hope all of my fellow Americans had a lovely Labor Day, that Gustav (the Hurricane) is kind to all, and all of my friends and fellow bloggers had a lovely weekend. Chat soon!
