I began my journey on Blogspot.com with this post (here) …BORING…a single picture of two bottles of Sally Hansen nail polish and 3 packs of Salon effects clearly marked for clearance from Walgreens…no descriptions…nothing…comments…none…just crickets – oh what a difference a year makes.

The first post to receive a comment and a “like was 40 days later, “Goodwill Deals – Gucci from the 90’s” from Lesley Carter of Bucket List Publications and my girlfriend Wanda, that stroked my ego so I continued purchasing and posting.

As time progressed I read and learned more and found my niche, but more importantly I realized the most rewarding aspect of blogging was the interaction between great virtual friends and followers.

In your own way, each of you have touched my heart and filled a void in such a glorious way that I could never truly express how I feel, so please accept my heart felt THANK YOU…a SMOOCH…and this big ole bag of MONEY…spend it wisely!

 

thank you

Hello friends and Happy Saturday – December 1st – wow where did November go?  Today was a beautiful, warm and sunny day made even brighter with a visit from my girlfriend Weyata and her pretty little ladies – Ashleigh, Rochelle, Hannah and Maggie.  It had been such a long time since I last saw my twin “nieces”, Ashleigh and Rochelle, I couldn’t get over how big they had gotten.  I still remember getting the call from Weyata at 2 in the morning to get to the hospital for their birth, they are now two lovely young ladies.  They also have two more sisters Hannah who is a hoot, with a big personality and Maggie, who definitely is the “baby of the bunch” and makes sure everyone knows it.

My household chores were done before they arrived so after they left I had time to get to the nail salon.

Have a wonderful night – Smooches!

 

 

No makeup, heels or jewelry, only shorts/tanks, sandals and a bathing suit for 5 wonderful, sun-filled days. Whether it’s called a VACATION or STAYCATION, living “the Life of Riley” is a beautiful thing. Sleeping in late; eating breakfast on the back deck; poolside lounging; laughing with and loving family and friends was the perfect way to spend the long July 4th Holiday. It was also the first time that we did not go out to watch fireworks, I did however, watch Wawa Welcome America and loved Lauryn Hill’s surprise performance. I was also able to watch more of the Twilight Zone Marathon, “Time Enough At Last” with Burgess Meredith is my favorite episode! I did do a little yard work and paid the price with my annual case of poison ivy – oh how I hate the itch!!!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend and now it’s back to reality!
