Okay, first let me apologize for not writing to you guys all week, but sometimes life gets busy and thinks you should be busy along with it. As I have said before, I do have a life outside of the blogosphere even though some of you don’t even believe in an “Out-of-Doors” experience.
Here are the tidbits of news I have for you:
My daughter Lizzy, aka, Belas, who has stopped by here on and off, has started her own blog! It is http://belascorner.blogdrive.com/ and she started her blog off with an introduction to the cast and characters. Anyway, please make sure and stop by.
I also discovered http://www.soldiersangels.com/ which is an organization that lets you “adopt” a soldier or a whole unit. There is a lot to check out and see. I had received an e-mail from a friend who wanted to know (I abbreviate) how her kids could help the soldiers and had read about Carter on my blogs. I e-mailed Carter and he asked around and found that this group is doing the most good and it was recommended to him. If you have ever had friends or relatives in the military they can tell you how meaningful a letter or package can be. They have a big site and there is something for almost everyone to do.
Finally, our pastor’s wife has started a “Red Hat” society chapter. I don’t know the name of the club or the club members “club names” but I did put up some pix. Janet had a hat made for Grandma Pike by a milliner especially for the occasion! It’s beautiful. The gallery link is http://herbthiel.blogdrive.com/galleries?g=20 and I tried to make the files as small as possible so they would load quickly on any connection.
Sorry this is so short, but if you had the week I had you might just throw the computer out the window. No, the computer is fine, it’s just me that’s frustrated and/or frustrating.
Remember, the good book says, “Gobble up samples in shops.”
