  9. Thank you for your sweer comments on my mercury pumpkins. I hope you come by often.

    I don't know if you have signed up yet but I have lots of fun things coming up in the next couple of weeks and my followers (with LINKS in their google account-so I can get to their blog) get notification of BIG news or give-a-ways. If you are already a follower you probably don't have LINK set up yet, since this is not a blog I regularly come by.

  10. Thanks for sharing this heart warming post. Always love to see the red, white, and blue of America! Raining here in TX with cooler temps, so it is beginning to feel like fall. I left my post on the Quimper Club International site for this Outdoor Wednesday. Hope you get a chance to stop by and visit the French Legation here in Austin. ~ Sarah
