  21. Wow! Congrats! I always look forward to reading about what inspires you, because I find that inspiring!

    Love your stories about your grandpa & grandma (esp. the wire-stripping story).

    Loved it when you got published...you're as full of sunshine as your mom!

    And this is one of my favorites: http://frecklednest.blogspot.com/2007/11/i-smiled.html The hope you found in God smiling on you was precious. And I'm glad you're seeing better days now!

    I'm in TX.

  34. Hi Leigh-Ann Just giving your
    instructions a try. So thrilled with your 50,000 total Afraid quite
    a few of them are mine Oh well
    what are gramelas for anyway
    .Love you lots, MELA

    ReplyDelete
  35. Well DAMM IT!, I went outside to rake the lawn and I missed being the 50,000th visitor, now I'm 50,040, missed it.
    Well Autumn, I can't say that your favourite blog is my favourite. I was so ticked when LA wrote all about her brazilian, I thought she
    went over the line. I think one of my favourites may just be the visit with Grandma and Grandpa in the mall and saving 30cents on a 4 litre jug of milk. It's so funny because that is exactly the way it would have gone, honestly. And also "my mom and dad are the coolest", because we really aren't, thats what makes it so funny.
    Now let me see, what would I pick if Keithcake picked Momma's name from the hat???
    MAYBE A JOURNAL!!!lol
    Pick my name Keith, please.
    Love Momma

    Congrats on the big 50,000!

    Here's a spring jingle for you - written many years ago in one of my autograph books (yeah, we did that once long ago!) - but I've improvised the names :

    Tulips in the garden.
    Tulips in the park.
    But the tulips that L-A likes
    Are Keith's two-lips in the dark.
