Thursday is normally the day that I celebrate all of the amazingness that you contributed to blogland this week. However, it is arriving a day late. I hope that it is just as exciting on Friday. So, drum roll please. I present to you HERE'S TO YOU FRIDAY. With love.

Here is what is going down: this is a weekly event. The best (or worst) part is that I am not going to explain why I chose "whatever" footage for each of you. If, you watch your footage and are scratching your head at the end, well that means I didn't do a very good job. However, all is not lost. You can email me at and ask me what I was thinking when I chose that particular piece of footage off of youtube and connected it to you. And then I will tell you. Then I will start sending up prayers that I haven't offended the crap out of whoever is on the receiving end of that Because, honestly, I will tell you right now... I admire all of you enormously so I really hope that doesn't happen.

Also, this is not an exclusive venture by any means. I hope that you will take the time to watch ALL of the footage because I don't pick bad footage:-) I also hope that you might check out the blog of the person I dedicated the footage to because they are pretty darn awesome. If you haven't figured this out yet... I pick the footage based on something that you've written or something that I've gleaned from your personality. Think on that for a while... If you are having trouble watching the entire video (meaning it is being cut off on one side), click on it a couple of times and it will take you straight over to youtube. If you click on the four squares at the bottom corner of the video, it will enlarge it to fill your screen. The escape key will bring it back to normal size. The back arrow will bring you back to my page.

Now, let's get this PARTY STARTED!!!!

  1. Very cool! Love the Nawlins song, especially ... :)

  2. He couldn't remember her name because he was desperately trying to remember mine ;oP
    do wish he would shave the beard though.
    Have a good trip robin. I hope you are able to spend some quality time with your dad and with your family.
    Big hugs.

  3. You rocked it out again! Good for you. Have a good trip! Be safe.



  4. I love these posts! I laughed; I cried; I had a great time! LOL

  5. I LOVES me some of them Tractors!!!!! I was NOT familiar with that song, so thank you for introducing me to it!!

    You will be in my thoughts and prayers in the days, weeks, and months to come...



  6. Oh Robin, that is too funny.

  7. I can't believe you still do this with everything going on. Go spend some time with your daddy!

  8. Robin: You made my year! I am now planning to invade Italy ASAP. Do you know which planet it is on? It can't be this one.

  9. Thanks for taking the time to get this post out for all of us, your dear readers. I love that you did this even though you must be so desperately hurting inside. I hope it was at least somewhat therapeutic for you and that you enjoy your trip to see your Dad.

  10. You went and done did it again, Rob.... I cried, but not in a bad way, if that makes sense. Chalk it up to lessons learned and time making things right again. Even if it's a totally different kind of right.

    OK. I'm gonna stop rambling now and explain that I'm an old friend, with a new look and a new home. (I'm sure you know just by the way I responded to the song/video that you picked for my "previous" but still "me" self.) I'm sure anyone else reading this is seriously confused though....

    Anyway, thank you my friend. I hope you are OK tonight. You're in my thoughts and my heart. Be well my dear.

    "Mrs B"

  11. Ah, yes, me with my weird luck. I WISH I had Superman like powers of luck, such as throwing a pen into a gun, but alas, I just break cars by looking at them. Hah!

    And the "stupid Americans" clip makes me so damn depressed every time I see it. Ugh. Would it kill people to read the newspaper once a week, even?

  12. Robin: Just stopping by to say hi. Hope you are doing okay.

  13. Stopping in from 40 and Over! Stupid Americans... CRAZY!!! Oh my gosh!

  14. I wonder if the Brits or Aussies would do much better?

  15. Thinking about you, hon. Love and hugs, sent your way.
