A Little Help for My Friends

Leesa is holding a Battle of The Blogs over at her place.  Loosely based on that old show  Battle of the Network Stars… surf over there and read about it, then nominate yourself and me.  Then I’ll nominate you, and myself.  Hurry, the deadline is February 23rd. I know you’re really busy, but read her post today, hysterical. 

The deadline for Cindra’s Weekly Word Game has passed, and the entries are posted and ready for you to vote.  If you haven’t checked this out yet, please do!  Worthy reads every week, submitted anonymously – so you’re voting on the quality of the writing instead of popularity.  I would be totally remiss if I didn’t mention that Mr. Fabulous  co-hosts the weekly word game and this week’s winner is getting a gift certificate to igourmet.  I, alas, mired in day job, children’s book and editing work did not finish my entry in a timely manner.  So you can rest assured that I’m pimping for my friends and not myself.  I’ll be submitting my invoices for friendship dues shortly.   

Where would we all be without friends?  It will be through the strength of my Doctor’s friends that we get our children’s book noticed.  My dog would be more maniacal than he already is if not for his friendship with the dogs in the neighborhood that help him escape his cat sisters.  Friends have stepped up over the years to help with kids, make me laugh, share a book, and remind me that I really need a haircut.  They were there lending support when my natural parents died, my husband was hospitalized and my leg was in a cast.  There are no friends better than the one’s here in my blog neighborhood for lending moral support, encouragement and laughter. 

Back in our poverty days, a friend once gave us a car.  It provided the means to get us back out of the spiral to homelessness we’d fallen into.  What’s the best thing a friend ever did for you?

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
