Blogging Around

Then a light bulb goes off in my head: I was going around the list of blogs on my side bar and got this idea while reading Pilgrim's Scrawl. Pilgrim came back this week after taking some time to retool.

I don't know how often I will be doing this, but I want to direct my readers to some of the posts I have seen in other blogs.

First, Pilgrim's Scrawl has a story about this friend of Pilgrim's who decided to get a meaningful gift while they were away from the kids for awhile. Also check out the comments, which are quite funny. It also inspired several humorous emails between myself and Liquid.

My newest friend, Frasypoo is up next. Her blog, This and That had a post on Thursday, called Wierd News from Georgia. Once again, the comments are priceless.

Liquid Illuzion had a story touching story yesterday about a man who had helped a baby bull elephant. You may have to fight back the tears.

And I want to continue shilling for my friend Tim Lones and his Classic Cleveland Media blog. Tim does a lot of hard work going to the area libraries looking for information of broadcast days gone by. Tim takes the bus to places like Cleveland and Youngstown from his home in Canton, since, for physical reasons, he can't drive.
Tim provides one heck of a service for those of us who like to read about what we grew up with, as he goes back into his personal time machine to get us the information we desire. He has many neat links there too.

MsFuldheim,

Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you are enjoying what is a very enjoyable hobby for myaself.

Frasypoo,

Thanks for making the rounds. Seeing I don't care too much for memes, I think it would be a good gesture to let my readers know about the bloggers that put up some good posts. Especially those who give me encouragement.
