A Plethora of Treats!!!
How time flies! Only one more day of handing out TREATS here before we get to give out all kinds of treats to those tricksters who come calling, dressed in all kinds of strange, scary and funny apparel. It seems like it was just yesterday when in fact, it was two weeks now since Theresa and Hootin-anni gave me my first two treats, following quickly behind by Vic Grace at Cariboo Ponderer and now, today, I received yet another one from Lifecruiser. So, I'm overstocked to the max right now and am going to try to give out as many as I can between today and tomorrow!
So, let's get on with the gifts now!
Here's a TREAT for Niki who's been waiting for several years now for her husband to come home and it now looks like his release will soon be taking place. She really needs big Sweet TREAT for being so patient and loving for so long while waiting for his return.
Then, there's Dortha, down in Kentucky, who's been receiving a few little treats here and there lately as her little guy, Conner, has started pre-school and is adjusting quite nicely, learning new things every day, and enjoying himself - something that makes all Mommas very happy the world over, doesn't it? I think she needs a nice Sweet TREAT all for herself.
Up in Norway is a mother with six children who, as I recall, started blogging maybe about a year ago now and shortly thereafter, she started doing paid posts for which she put up a ticker showing her progress on money earned through these ads. Interestingly enough, she's moving along nicely in her goal towards reaching her impressive goal. Ok, she has a ways to go but I remember when her earnings were really low so she's made some good moves along the way. Earnings like that should be recognized with a nice TREAT is what I say.
A new blogger added recently to my faves is this young man who writes some really good pieces, very introspective, very kind, considerate and also, very friendly. Stop by his "planet" and check out what he has to say as I think he definitely deserves a big TREAT not just today, but every day!
Here's one too for blogger buddy, Bobby, to thank him for all his words of advice to ALL bloggers as we plod along, plugging away at writing post after post, in hopes of keeping the interest of blogger friends and of finding new friends as we wend our way here. He does a great job and a sweet TREAT is a good way to say "Thanks for being a friend!"
Now, a nice sweet TREAT goes here to my favorite resident now of Italy but formerly from Pennsylvania (our lovely Keystone state). Stop by and check out the great photos she posts, enjoy some espresso, trade some recipes with her and maybe you might even come away with one of Stella's puppies that just arrived on the scene about a week ago! It's a visit you won't regret there, trust me!
If you're still thinking about going to a halloween party and don't have a clue what to wear, stop here and check out Terri's halloween garb she, her hubby and four friends of theirs wore this past weekend to a bang-up Halloween get-together they all attended! You can get a "blow-by-blow" description of all the fun they had too. Such originality really deserves a big Sweet TREAT too ya know.
Getting ready for a big event next week -election day? If you aren't you should be. But if you don't have much of a clue as to what's going on in the political realm of late, Tomcat here, has just the thing for you. Stop by and read his explanations and reports on what those folks in Washington - and those wanting to go there to work and live - are up to these days. For being so in tune with all this, keeping a watchful eye on this scene for us as he does, Tom really, REALLY deserves a great big Sweet TREAT today! (And everyday!)
Right after election day is another really important day in the Blogging realm - Blogging for Peace (Dona Nobis Pacem) and Noladawn has all kinds of information how to get a Peace globe for your blog, along with lots and lots of other things too. Stop and see her "tee shirt" will ya please?
And finally, a great big Sweet TREAT goes out today - a bit belated but better late than never -to help Dr. Sardonicus keep celebrating his 47th birthday! Hope it was a good one and may you have many, many more too -all here, with us, blogging the day away! Keep the good words flowing from the Pole Hill Sanitorium!
So, now go and pass on to others more Sweet Treats in anticipation of everyone having a good and Happy Halloween! OK?
