Butterflies and Thanks


Yeah, I’d say butterflies and thanks go well together. Both are so very pleasant to have around.

Especially when they are yet more blog awards! Holy smoke, you guys love me! Or else you save me to scrape the bottom of the barrel with. But either way, I’ll take it. Being thought of is being thought of, no matter when or how it happens.

On to the butterfly. Sheesh. Between the last post and now this one from my good friend Shaunie, I think I’ve got enough to start a butterfly garden. Which is fine by me.

Look. I’m going to be daring and let the Tour Manager post a picture of me! Or, more appropriately, my back. Yep, that’s a butterfly on there. This was almost two years ago, when we went up to Niagara Falls.

I was getting ready to post this when Toni at A Circle of Books gave the Proximidade Award to me and the gang at Win a Book. She calls us a friend to all. That made me feel good on many levels, the least of which is that bringing books and readers together has always been important to me.

If one Toni in my life wasn’t enough, my friend Toni at It is Naptime gave me the Thank You! You are the Best! graphic. I’d like to say that about her, to be honest. She’s warm and friendly and one of these days, I’ll get my act together and join her way cool Meet My Friends Monday meme (although it’ll mean missing the Poetry Train). I like this meme ’cause it’s manageable: only one new person to meet and check out.

Speaking of new friends to check out, I’ve met two who I want to tell you about. First is Jannie Funster. I believe Thomma Lyn got us together, but I’ve been so overloaded of late, I can’t recall. It doesn’t matter; we’ve found each other and so far, I’m digging the ride.

Then there’s Lindsay. How can *I* not like someone who is the Rock and Roll Mama??? HUH??? I ask you this. This friendship is even younger than Jannie’s is, but so far, it’s equally as cool and gratifying.

So go say hello. Call it a Meet My Friends… whatever day it is when this gets posted ’cause I gotta save it so the Tour Manager can pretty it up with the awards and the picture of me. Maybe I’ll be slick enough to post it on a Monday. What do you think?

    Glad to see I’m not the only one who thinks you rock! Congrats on all the awards, they are well deserved!

    A visit here has been long overdue… I’m afraid things have been a bit a bit of a nightmare recently, but I see from your last post that you know exactly what that is like! I hope things are better for you this week 🙂

    BTW – I have been trying to pay for the Demo tapes but have had PayPal troubles…don’t ask. It’s all okay now but I then I went and lost your email with the details on when I migrated to my new laptop! Doh! I must email you so that I can get my hands on my own copy at last!
