Hey there fellow bloggeroos!  Hope everyone had a wonderful week.  Thank you all for being so patient during my critiquing period.  For those of you that left me a comment anyway, you are so sweet!  I do appreciate it.  For those of you who decided to follow me, big welcome!  If I have not followed you back yet, please leave me a comment to set me straight.

I started off the morning with a chuckle so I thought I'd share it.  I keep my cell phone on my desk.  My ringer is set to the Pink Panther theme for everybody.  I was sitting here minding my own business when the phone rang.  Hubs always calls me a few times throughout the day to get his Laila fix.  Well, I grabbed the phone and in my best hot porn star voice said, "Hello there sexy."  There was a brief pause on the other end of the line.  Then a woman giggled and said, "I'm sorry, I have the wrong number."  And we laughed.  I added two years to her life and mine.  At this rate I'll live forever.

Now to the matter at hand.

These two highly intelligent manly specimens:

Alex at http://alexjcavanaugh.blogspot.com/ and Matthew at  http://theqqqe.blogspot.com/ devised a plan that would enable us to meet other bloggers and ride up the ladder to bloggingdom.  They came up with this blog fest.

I'm supposed to list three blogs I visit and enjoy.  Well, I visit a heck of a lot more than three, so here's what I'm doing.  Today (pretend it's Friday already) I will list the three manned by the ladies who have been a great inspiration in my writerly life.  Besides, we've exchanged the occasional email and that's pretty cool.  In alphabetical order by last name I give you....

Carrie Butler from http://soyoureawriter.blogspot.com  Carrie is smarter than heck and she writes the best flowing conversations I've ever read.

Lisa Regan at http://lisalregan.blogspot.com  Lisa is a highly talented agented writer waiting to find her novel a home.  She has tons of knowledge to offer.

Apparently, these two ladies have teamed up with a third party to host the blog hop below.  Check out Carrie's blog for more info.

And last but not least, Nancy Thompson at http://nancysthompson.blogspot.com  Nancy focuses on her journey to getting published.  She gives us hope, and she is an awesome writer.  She's also responsible for the fact that I am now following people on Twitter.  I'll have to do a practice run. :)  Great Heavens!

Next week, I will possibly participate on the above blog hop and pass on a few awards.  In that way I can name a ton of other blogs that I have missed.

Have a great weekend everyone!  I'll be around following and visiting.  ...^-^...
