I see friends shaking cyber-hands, saying how dee do...


I had so much fun with the guess that song/singer book give away -I'm going to have to do something like that again soon. But, Lawd! Mr. Twinkley Eyed postman is going to wonder about me! Sending lumpy envelopes all over nationally and internationally. I was happy for the donation of books by Bellebooks! Thing is, the more I mailed my rocks and buckeyes all over the place, the happier I felt. Pieces of my mountain going here, there, and yonder. Makes me smile knowing someone opens an envelope, takes out a rock, looks at it and thinks of my ancient mountains; or, takes out a buckeye and rubs the smooth seed with their thumb, maybe putting it in their pocket for good luck.

I'm leaving this with you. One of my favorite songs - and just how I'm feeling right this moment... and I couldn't figure out how to get it embedded here in a post, so...sit in your favorite chair with your coffee, or whatever, and watch with me:

This song is my niece's favorite, even though she's only 11! My mom loves it too, because it reminds her of Arissa (my niece, her granddaughter.) Nice pick.;-)

I know what you mean. I sent out a whole bunch of postcards to bloggers and it felt GOOD.

Man, Kat. I have just GOT to do a better blog reading job. I have missed so many good posts from you. And a contest! A whole dang contest! Poop.

I'm at work right now (shh! the gestapo will get so worked up about where I am on the internets) so I can't see the youtube video, but I have a feeling it's my favorite Louis Armstrong song. Louis Armstrong's voice makes me smile.

I bet you are the bright spot in that twinkly eyed postman's day!
