Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

300th Post....and third year of blogging...

Well, three years, huh...who knew it was opening a door to meeting some wonderful blog pals. We began traveling in the RV in November of 2006, and I wanted to document our road experiences and share them with family and friends. I didn't have a clue how to do it, and daughter April told me about blogger. The rest is history. We're landlocked at home now, at least I am, as Jim travels via semi these days rather than the Winnebago.


Anyhoo, 'tis time to share glad tidings and a little giveaway. What we have here is a trio of tags. Two with a woman/gal pal theme, and one Thanksgiving one. I send tags to friends often. They use them as bookmarks, or put them up on their refrigerator. They're usually sassy, and full of mirth.
These are more neutral. Also there is a Christmas card, one of the many I have been making for our local bazaar coming up in a few weeks. A box of Ande's creme de menthe candies will sweeten the pot.

Make a comment, and that's an entry. Blog about it on your blog, make another entry. I'll collect names until Sunday, the 15th. The corgis will sniff out a name, and the wettest name wins!
Corgi humor folks. Play along, it's worth it for the candy at least!
It's been fun sharing life with you all. You're all so interesting.
It's like visiting over a back fence reading your entries.
We're all so different, but the same, in oh so many ways.
Hugs to ya' all!

Please read the following to the corgis (I am NOT trying to influence their choice of winner in any way):

"Dearest of corgis, I hope you know that if I win, I will send a lot of really yummy dog treats to you via FedEx! So you will not only get the treats, but you will get a FedEx employee to bark at! And I will send you a bottle of delicious gravy, too!!! And a squeaky toy!"

Wonderful to find another Corgi dog mama! I saw your comment on Jennifer's Gypsy Mare's blog and followed it over here and discovered the giveaway. What a nice surprise! I can add another Corgi lover to my list of blogs I follow, plus get to enter a giveaway for some wonderful tags and candy! Dotty will be happy to know about some new buddies.
