* Live from Missouri...It's Saturday Night *

Hello All ~  I had another busy, exhausting day, but all in a good way. Tomorrow, I will be posting a new Nostalgic Sunday, so please stop back sometime on or after November 24th.

P.S. I just found out today from a fellow writer that my memoir is also on the Barnes & Noble website! (Thank you, C.R.) I was shocked because I thought that by self-publishing, and especially with an Amazon company, they would not accept my book. Things have definitely changed over the past couple of years.

This is part of a vintage-looking, 3-D wall plaque from my office. I've had it for quite a few years and I just love it. I don't remember where I purchased it.....but probably Home Goods or Hobby Lobby. I'm thinking about having it as part of the header on my website. It did have a photo of a wooden desktop and cup of coffee, but I removed it, with the intention of having something unique to me.

  5. Hi there, Becky! Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I just had to come to your site... and I got lost! Yeah, I followed one path, then another and had so much fun reading different posts from the past. What fun! Your quotes started my Sunday with a smile - there's nothing better than that! Have a great week!

    1. Hi there, back at ya ~ Dreaming! How nice of you to come by here, too. Sometime...maybe a long time ago, I started following your blog and so you show up in my Blogger-blog-roll, not the one over and down there → → → but in a different area. And when I saw you wrote something about a plane, I had to pop over and see what it was. (if you look for my prop plane posts, you'll learn more about my obsession with them!) Anyway, thanks so much for your comments and I'm happy to start off your week with a smile!
