To all who have been coming in the past week, welcome. You are going to find out what I'm about. To all of my longtime friends, thank you for all your support this past week. I had no idea when I started the tribute posts to Suzanne what was going to become of them.
And to Suzanne...Thank you for having such good friends in "Bloggeritaville." I think we will all do a good job of taking care of each other. You won't ever be forgotten. And if there is ever a bloggers hall of fame, you will be one of the first inductees.
I picked up a bunch of new friends this past week. Some of these friends I've crossed paths with before, either at Liquid Illuzion or at authorblog. First new friend I want to introduce you to is familiar to many who come here, Sandy Carlson. Sandy writes several blogs, her main one is called Writing in Faith. She is a very talented lady. Sandy also wrote some posts in Suzanne's memory.
Next up is Betty Ann. She has made several comments here and gave me several smiles. Betty Ann is one of several Al-Anon members with blogs. What I have read of her blog, Diary of a Frugal Hen Without a Rooster, she has tons of advice we all can use.
Mojo contacted me yesterday evening. He wanted me to see his Flash 55. Funny thing was that I had already written a 55 of my own(see post below.) His blog is called Why? What have you heard? Also a good blog to read.
As you have read this past week, my son is bipolar. Bipolar disorder is a very misunderstood condition. I want to do anything I can to help prevent prematurely losing anyone else who is burdened with this disorder. This afternoon I helped my wife start a blog which will tell of her experiences with our son and some of the things she has found out of services available for those who are close to those afflicted with bipolar disorder. In the next few days, I will have her write a guest post here, introducing her new blog.
Now to the new friends I have coming here, in the next few days I will give you a reason to visit my other friends, as I present the 2008 Top Banana Awards. I have some of the best blogger buddies around, and you will see why.
