Really, really important stuff.

This is Bernie Berlin, and she needs our help.

Please go visit Cynjon's blog ASAP to read about how you and I can help Bernie and her shelter.

Hoffman in a Teapot or Thepest in a Teapot

Those are the potential names for a potential second blog, a blog of questions that you, the reader of the blog, would answer for me. This posting is a test run.
But first, a picture for you to see:

These are my feet in shoes on my back porch at night.
And my question is: why? Why do so many artist bloggers, to the best of my memory, these are all women, why do these bloggers post pictures of their feet? Feet in shoes or barefoot, toes with nail polish or toe rings or naked, feet in rainboots or Earthshoes? I have my own idea, but tell me what you think. Maybe you've posted pictures of your own feet. Why? One inquiring mind wants to know, please.

2, 2, 2 posts in 1

First, go look at this blog .
Kristin is sort of new to blogging, like that makes a difference when someone has as much passion for life as she seems to have.

Second, Susan Tuttle is having another giveaway, but you have to enter today, because she's picking the winner tomorrow (Wednesday) at noon.
Amazon has the book also.

Oh boy, now I'm excited. Roz Wound Up has announced this. This being that April is Fake Journal Month.
Last year, the last calendar I was working on for the 2008 Calendar-Journal Exchange just absolutely threw me for a loop. The calendar itself was beautiful but the format was different from the others and for some reason, I froze/my muse was missing/I was struck dumb, etc. So at one point, and this point was in the last month before I was to send the calendar-journal home to it's owner, I considered writing up fake stuff. I didn't do that (pictures of what I did do are below in a previous posting), but it really appealed to me.
So now I can do that! I can keep a second *fake* journal.
Oh, I know I could have done this before, but now it's official (or something).
And I have the button that says so!

This is Jaxon.....

Baby Jaxon is the son of my niece, Sarah.
I was home for 8 days in a row with a leftover cough from a cold, and a car that was in the shop (with a $1,200 repair bill), and my sister, Jeanie, came to visit. with her came Sarah, Jaxon, and my nephew, Danny, and lots of groceries!).
I might as well go ahead & add one more more picture.
Happy days, everyone.

We got some snow! 3-2-9.

*** Update *** Fuzz-Marie's Auntie Margaret sent me a picture of her new puppy, Miss Sage in her first snow.
