Weekend Hangout!


Yeah, we took last week off since I was off with the Boy Scouts again. But we’re back! Come hang out this weekend. Make new friends, visit old ones. Spread the word — the more people who play, the more fun we have!

Here’s how to play:

1. Leave a comment here, on this post. Say hello to me, tell me what you’re reading, what song you’re jamming to. You pick it. Leave your link (I can’t get Comment Luv to work regularly) to your blog.

2. Go visit the blog link in the comment above you. Tell them “I’m from West of Mars” and hopefully something nice about their post.

3. When three people have left a comment since your last one, you may play again. If no one’s commented for two hours, you may play again. This is the ONLY time you may visit someone other than the person above you.

4. If you’re new here, your comment will go into moderation. I’m going to try to keep on top of that, but do check back to make sure no one missed you. If you were skipped, leave another comment — even if you break the three-person rule.

5. Be nice. Have fun. Make new friends — that’s what this is all about. And, of course, I operate on the Commutative Principle of Friendships, whereby any friend of yours is a friend of mine. Which means anyone and everyone is welcome to play.

6. Game ends Sunday night.

    I’m not sure what my music for the weekend will be, probably classic soul. I will be watching baseball, of that I am certain. 🙂
    Have a great weekend, everyone.

    Hi Susan, this weekend I’ll be reading over the final proof of my new book ‘The Dream’ 🙂 Also, reading a great YA book, ‘The Word Gang’ by Mark McKenna

    Currently, on my blog I’m giving away a signed copy of ‘Mourning Doves After The Fire’ by Charles Blanchard, so anyone who leaves a comment there will be entered into a draw to win!

    Ouch! Our snow is gone, and the yard is a disaster! Moles have mounded up all over it. I hate yardwork!

    Hiya guys. 🙂

    Moles and yardwork. Ick. We have mole crickets here that eat our lawn. Disgusting creatures.

    Coincidentally, the man above me, JBK – otherwise known as Sir Bojangles – is visiting my blog. He talks about his personal muse and gives away a few secrets.

    Hey darlin,

    I’m at work today. My saturday to man, (err woman – ?) the shop. Have to come up with a new term for that. Quiet right now so have time to blog hop. I just finished reading Mariah Stewart’s Coming Home. In middle of reading Thomas Jefferson Education. What else? Have been listening to spanish guitar. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.


    Off to visit Darcia. So much fun!
