When I started this enterprise, I was hoping to record some of my stories for family and friends. What I didn't expect was to increase my circle of family and friends so significantly through the blog. Now I have a network of people to check in with every day, who keep me entertained and amused. When they're not providing levity, they provide ideas for contemplation, books to read, music to listen to, slumber parties and fancy balls to attend, as well as bourbon balls to eat. Lively banter and inappropriate language bring giggles and guffaws... more than once causing me to choke or spew liquids out my nose. It's just like hanging out with a whole mess of brothers and sisters.
These people live anywhere from a half mile away to half way around the world. Talk about expanding your horizons! There are some that I check in with only occasionally and some that I hear from almost daily. You know who you are! (My blog roll will give you an idea of how many there are.) And it's reassuring to receive an email from someone, inquiring after my health if I haven't posted in awhile.
So thanks to you all! My life is so much richer because of you!

P.S. For a good time, join the best circle of blogger friends out there... Tribal Blogs! (That's where all the cool kids hang out.)
And while you're at it, stop by and wish Michael at Too Many Mornings a Happy Birthday! He's having a party at his place today!
