After!!! - (yep, that's me)
"Locks of Love".
I am donating my hair in loving memory of my friend Robin, who died 2 1/2 yrs ago from what started as breast Cancer and spread through her body.
What's happening - I get my eggs from a friend. Her 9 yr. old daughter is taking care of the hens, gathering the eggs, and selling them. She is home schooled and this is a good learning tool for her. She is also learning about "tithing" to the church with her own money. So... this last dozen eggs I received a little surprise! -
A " happy egg"! Maybe he is happy because the hens are raised humanely, free range with no chemicals! These are drug free eggs. And we all know "Drug free" means Happiness!
***I have been thinking about having two separate blogs - one for personal (photos, what's happening, etc.) and one for book reviews and giveaways (this was urged by my daughter). What do you guys think? You all would be invited to visit both. Would it be less confusing to just have 2? and would you really visit both? Please let me know what you think.
Survivor - Bye Jimmy J. Never really liked him as a coach anyway! Go Marty!!!
DWTS - Really mad about Michael Bolton going home! I know he sucked but.... still liked him. Still in love with Jenn Gray. Still get a tear in my eye when I watch her dance!
Glee - was awesome! I hate Brittany Spears but the show did her well. It shows you how much talent those actors have if they can make her look good.
