SURPRISE. I know, I can hardly believe it myself. I began thinking about this post a week and a half ago. Yeah, I just don't move like I used to.... Anyway, I started writing ideas down as they hit me for this post and I finally pulled *this* together. Since it didn't even land on Thursday, I think we can all safely assume I am not quite ready to make this a weekly event just quite yet. However, I am moving in that direction. I really have missed the Thursday posts more than I can tell you.

If you are wondering what I am blathering on about, let me catch you up to speed. 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. (It used to be a weekly event. And I hope it will be a weekly event again soon:-) 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. Robin: I do miss your blog.

  2. YES! So GOOD to have you almost back!

  3. thank you! it means alot to me.

  4. so great to read YOU again. I've missed you.


  5. Aww thanks Robin! Needed this tonight! :)

  6. Mine is the BEST! Okay, I would not get rid of a guy that cooked me chili and said they were going to get mice out of my house... even if it was getting all weirdish. THAT is how much I hate mice!

    How did you even post, I couldn't get on blogger for two days until live five minutes ago!

  7. That Sara Evans song is the theme for my thoughts about my sister these days. Thank you so much for your comments on my blog. I answered back to you in the comments on my previous post, but blogger erased it. I do appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions about my dream. I think it had a lot to do with the fact that I have been thinking about what happened to my husband.

  8. Oh, and you and I do have much in common- I also have a strange and rare disorder that is related to migraines, although I do not get migraines on any regular basis.

  9. Oh, how I've missed these posts! I love all of the clips... even when I'm not sure of the meaning behind them. It's more about the fact that I know that you think long and hard and search high and low for just the right thing to say to each person. That's why we all love ya, girl!

    (Doin' a little "whoot, whoot!" for Here's To You clips!)

    Be well,
    ~Mrs B

  10. It's so good to have you back -- you don't know how much you mean to all of us! And, of course, as always you've cut right to my heart. 'Cept there haven't been tears in what was precisely a month when you posted this, 'cause it was time ... the angel said to try, and I tried until there was no reason to anymore ....

  11. Hey YOU!! What a GREAT surprise!! Thank you, I LOVE Lucinda Williams!!!!!

    Like everyone else, I've missed you!



  12. Thank you - I love the Beatles, they always know how to make me smile, but of course you're so good at reading blog posts that you know that - and I am deeply, deeply sorry for what you are going through right now and I feel I've let you down a bit by not keeping up with your blog (or anyone's for that matter) and I'm off to to go read your posts.
