* This 'n That on a Wednesday *

After a huge thunder and lightening storm that blew through our area last night, today is sunny, breezy, not too hot or humid..... perfect!  Oh Happy Day!

Since I'm leaving sometime on Friday for my writer's get-away, I'll post my "I Wonder" segment either very late tomorrow, or early Friday a.m. AND I have my very own, exclusively created graphic for "I Wonder"....made by none other than the immensely talented Mo, from Rose Petals from Heaven. Thank you, Mo! It is awesome! I love it!

and Becky Povich)

 I added another photo of Vern on the right hand column. Scroll down a little and see him in action!

If you haven't read my interview with Michael Lee West (yesterday), please do. It really is worth the few minutes it will take. I learned so much!

Hello & Welcome to my newest follower: Morpho Marigold! I hope you'll stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see. Thank you so much!

* I forgot to add that I'm in the middle of switching my e-mail addresses from AOL to Gmail, BUT you can still send mail to all of my AOL addresses, and they are being forwarded. My computer guru son, Scott, worked on my laptop the past 2 days and I'm still trying to get used to it. (Psst! ...I don't like some of it! ) I've only had AOL all these years. The e-mail showing on my Profile page is the new one.

  1. Hee Hee! I love the blur that is Vern!! So funny. Not long now until you go off on your writing jaunt. Hope it all goes well for you my friend.

  2. Thanks Thisisme!! I love that blur, too...the picture AND the doggie! :)

  3. Becky, I just read the Michael Lee interview. You asked great questions. I'll be checking out her blog.

    Glad your computer is back.

  4. That was sweet of Mo making that for you - very nice!

  5. Vern looking out the door looks peaceful....all dogs like to see out!

  6. A writer's get away sounds like a dream....:)

  7. Have fun, Becky. And get lots of writing done!

  8. Hi Becky,

    I am so happy you liked it. You know I just had to use the picture of you "wondering", it was perfect.

    Have a pleasant trip and enjoy yourself.



  9. Hi Myrna! Thank you! And yes, I'm glad I got my laptop back, too! And I must admit, it's working much better and faster, etc. It's mostly the new gmail I have to get used to.

    Hey Chatty! Thank you!Yeah, I didn't think I could subject y'all to that other horrible photo any longer! :)

    Hi Bookie! Thanks! And Tiger always liked it, too. You are so right!

    Hello Keair! Thanks for stopping, commenting and becoming a new follower! And yes, I can't wait for my get-away!

    Hi Sioux! Thanks! I hope to do both!

    Hi Mo ~ Thanks again! It's perfect and I love it! And I do hope to enjoy myself and write like crazy!

  10. That's a cool graphic, Becky :)
    Vern is so sweet, glad he adjusted so well and you guys are still in love. In my experience that only grows.

    Have fun on your getaway, and of course let us know how it went :)

  11. Hi Estrella! Thank you so much. I've been meaning to get back over to your blog and comment..but I just haven't made it yet. I hope you and all my blog friends know that even when I'm not reading your blog or leaving comments...I'm thinking about every one of you!


I'm still getting quite a few spam comments that are Anonymous, so I'm trying "User with Google Accounts." If anyone tries to comment that I know, and it won't let you, send me an email, okay? Thanks so much.
