Saturday 6/13/09 - "A FEW THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW"


#1 - I have proven to myself that I can negotiate our brand new Toyota RAV4 on very small, winding, hilly, pot-holed,country roads in Southern Illinois. I was motivated by the fact that our destination was to meet a gracious blogger friend, her dear husband, and other friends on their lovely little piece of property in the woods off the main roads. In fact the setting reminded me of Robert Frost....."The woods are lovely, dark and deep."

#2 - I have written the "Final Scene" of my Flash Fiction Friday 55 serialized story blog. (It will be in waiting till I arrive at the end.) An author recently told my book club that when writing a story, the beginning and end should be written first and then everything in between.

#3 - I probably slept about 3 hours last night and had a full day today of driving from Paducah, Kentucky to a small town in Southern Illinois. We got settled in and I had about a half hour nap. We were then off to meet a blogger friend, AKAnnie, then to dinner at a wonderful buffet where I sampled more items than I could count, and went to a great meeting at which Annie received a 19 year medallion. What a wonderful day. And now I am dead tired.

#4 - The topic of the AA meeting tonight was change. If I'm going one way for too long, I best contemplate what might be possible by going another way.

#5 - I'm going to post this short blog and then hopefully sleep!!!

#6 - I still believe in the power of prayer and if I say I'll pray for you, I mean it.
I'll pray for you!

Congrats to Akannie.
And I didn't know that about writing the beginning and the ending first.

Night, night PG!

Amen to the power of prayer!!

So glad you were able to drive that Toyota RAV4 on a very small winding hill, otherwise we probably would not be reading this post.

Continue to have and enjoy life dear one. Appreciate you!
