    Looks like a lot of fun! Aren’t you glad you went? And you look great, too.

    What a nice variety of stuff, food, music, people. Well worth the cost and time in many ways, I’m sure.

    Thanks for starting this dance!

    I was with you right up until we had to read what was written by the lady in the last photo….and my little man wouldn’t read it. I would just let it go but I’m dying to know how you would describe your feelings.

    I tell you, sweet pea, you shouldn’t miss even one of these very special get-togethers ’cause they look as if they have it all: fun, fellowship, good eating and great information. And you looked cute as a button.

    Barb, the sign says “The delicate dance between blogger and reader is one full of joy, resonance, and often love. Be brave.”

    Gee, “Blissdom” looks like so much fun! I wanna go!! Do you have to have a blog to go? And you even have live entertainment by really talented people!!1 And FOOD! Lots of WONDERFUL FOOD!!!

    Did you learn anything interesting about blogging at Blissdom ’11?

    And Sunny said it well—–thanks, Tori, for starting this dance!

    I agree; be brave !! Although I’m afraid I now have the worst crush on you friend Robin. You may have to stop bravely posting pictures of her on your blog = / Seriously, looked wonderful. Glad you were able to make it out to there again this year = )

  5. Barbara M. Lloyd

    Thanks Linda….and I thoroughly understand and concur. All I wanna say is “Let’s keep on dancing.”

  6. LindaB

    JONNY!!! And now you have a crush on ROBYN??? It’s because she’s “pensive”, isn’t it? You brooding rock star artist types like that, don’t ya?

    But soon she’ll be a “Former” too. Life goes on.

    Seriously, (I was just kidding), that pic of the three girls is so nice——pretty girls all! And YOUNG!!! Oh, to be young again. And have nice hair. And wear cute boots. It’s hard to find cute orthopedic boots.

    And eye-lashes, LB; don’t forget their long and lushes eye-lashes !!

    I’m afraid you are, and will always be, my one and only Former, Former. Robin is just another, ‘Was never meant to be,’ or seriously out of my league, way too good for me type = /

  8. Barbara M. Lloyd

    Happy Birthday to you
    Happy Birthday to you
    Happy Birthday, dear Linda
    Happy Birthday to you

    On Tuesday, the day after Valentine’s Day, our Linda will become 39 years old (that’s your present, sweet pea)

  9. jonny

    Well, I guess that means on Valentine’s Day I’ll be 29 again = ) Actually, LB is a day younger than Jack Benny ! He has a birthday tomorrow as well, but turns 39; like Former = )

  10. LindaB

    Thank you, Barb!

    jonny, is your birthday really on Valentine’s Day? If so, happy birthday to one cool rocker!

    I’m trying to find somewhere to celebrate my birthday that has a Metamucil bar and a defibrillator.

  11. jonny

    LOL ! Yep, and it’s already started on my facebook page ! Quite cool = ) It’s been Valentine’s Day nearly six hours now over here already, for what it’ worth ! Boylan soda pop came to Finland last week, and to a quite cool little shop around the coner from where I live. Two flavo(u)rs at the moment; Sugar Cane Cola and Black Cherry. Some friends will pitch in and we’ll buy a bunch and bring it over to where some friends live a couple blocks from me, a bigger apartment, then drink them with some American Pancakes; possibly watching the 1970’s Incredible Hulk pilot movie. One of my first presents I got was all five seasons of The Incredible Hulk 70’s TV show on DVD last Friday = )

    Oh, and I put a Valentine’s treat up on my clubs facebook page, too ! If you haven’t already, please check it out = )


    Peace, and hope everyone has a really nice Valentine’s Day !! = )

    Happy Birthday jonny! Have a great day.

    Happy Birthday for tomorrow LindaB.

    I just got back from a wonderful child-free weekend away to Belfast with Mum. We had a really good time.

    I’m joining Sunny and Linda in thanking Tori for starting this dance.

  14. Barbara M. Lloyd

    Oh dear, Jonny, I’m late but my wishes are big….that you had a Happy Birthday, dear one.

    I’m on time for you Linda: Happy Birthday….again.

    And I just have to mention how happy I am that Russ and Madi are back from Mexico City, where they went as missionaries. Our little Taff family is a blessing in so many ways.

  15. jonny

    Yes, they are = ) And, thanks, Barbara !
