I want to thank all of you who take the time to visit my little blog and an extra special hug around your neck to those who take the time to leave a comment.  You’ve often given me a boost, made me laugh out loud, given sound advice and you usually leave a bread crumb trail back to your lovely blogs and it is all received as a gift!

Thank you.

I broke down and went with the random number generator and the winner turned out to be my mom so I asked her “Before or After” and she replied, “Before” and so it comes that Kelly is the winner of my 1 year blog anniversary giveaway!  Her joke, for the record, was:

Knock Knock.
Who’s there?
Pencil.
Pencil who?
Never mind. There’s no point.

Kelly is a very funny woman, it is said and it is true, but lucky for her the winner was not picked by the funniest joke!  🙂  Email me your address and I will get this out to you before Jack starts college!

For your visual pleasure I thought I would share something that came in the mail for me!

My beautiful (and I’m talking outside, not just inside), funny, and thoughtful friend from college saw this, thought of me and sent it on.  I love it for so many reasons.  Primarily because it always feels good when people “get” you and understand what will float your boat.  She hit the nail on head with this one (Thanks dad).   You can’t really tell but the G has a little bit of cellophane, creating a “window” – love that and I can’t believe it’s still intact.   Take a close look at the little bird perched on the T, such a graphically cool card.  And Sharon also knows that my father, who I have the utmost respect for, served in the military and this appeals to my army brat upbringing.  It’s perfect on so many levels.

So thank you Sharon and thank you Facebook for reuniting us!

    Yahoooo! I’m so excited! Thanks you! – and thanks to your Mom as well for choosing “before”!

    I’ll wholeheartedly admit that my joke does indeed suck. : )

    That greeting card is fantastic. I’ve never seen a card specifically for someone joining the service. I love the graphics and how they mixed that sweet little bluebird with planes, ships and tanks. Sublime.

    You are most welcome! And thank YOU, for such a lovely post of thanks. You just TOTALLY guaranteed that I will be sending you more gifts – I get public thanks and compliments! What more could I want? 🙂 So what era do you think the card is from – I am guessing WWII?

    Sharon is very cool to have sent this wonderful card on to you! Love the whole idea of it, and what it represents. You artistic types should start your own business with this type of card!
