I was thinking last night, while I was too zoned on allergy medicine to even consider typing anything, about what I should write about today. TGIF? Freaky Friday? What to do? What to do? Then I woke up at 4:30 and discovered that I had sixteen comments on yesterday's Theme Thursday blog, and I was so flabbergasted that I didn't write anything except a couple of answers to comments. Then I went off to visit as many as I could of the people who had visited me. That was fun. So - here I am, back at home, with barely anything left of Friday. In a few minutes, I'll be going out again - this time to have dinner and see a play with a friend (I'll tell you all about it tomorrow).

Meanwhile, I did decide that TGIF was a good idea. I'm interpreting TGIF a little differently from the usual usage - particularly because it isn't actually my Friday. What I would like to do is mention some people and things for which I feel grateful today.

First of all, I feel grateful to the friends I'm making here in the Land of Blog. I know that it's an odd, very long arm's length relationship that bloggers have, but I value it.

I look forward to hearing John Hayes's opinion of what I write, and I respect that opinion. I love going to his blog, Robert Frost's Banjo, and reading his stories, listening to the music he and Eberle make.

Meeting Kathryn Magendie here has given me such a source of joy - reading her Tender Graces blog makes me grin every day. LOL - I just went over there to snag the URL, and I saw that Kathryn had been blogging about how fortunate she is to be able to meet fellow bloggers in person. There must be something in the air.

On that note, I'll cut short my own litany of thanks (just for now) and make the following announcement: My copy of The Unbreakable Child arrived a couple of days ago (I'm halfway through, and loving it), and Tender Graces (signed, no less) arrived today. Woo-hoo! I am fortunate indeed.

Since my camera/computer interface still seems to be on strike, I've asked my friend Jane, with whom I'm going out, to take my picture reading both The Unbreakable Child and Tender Graces. She'll upload the photos to her computer and e-mail them to me, and as soon as I get them, I'll post them.

I now have about ten minutes to get beautiful before I have to leave. Until tomorrow, then...

Thanks for the kind words-- I always look forward to the "Amazing Voyages" posts, too, as well as to your comments on RFBanjo.

Hope you have a fun evening, & thanks again.
