I like Jessica because.......

She's a nature lover.....
An avid book reader......
A proud band mom....
A dog lover.........
A fan of winged creatures......
A devoted wife and mother......
She's Jessica!

Jessica first joined the bunch on my birthday, October 30, 2007, letting me know hers was two days later. That gave me a great vehicle for introducing her to everyone who hadn't yet seen her excellent blogs.

I met Jessica via Frasypoo and our common bond was marching band. It's common knowledge that I announce for the Rittman marching band here in Ohio. Jessica's daughter, Jordan is a drum major for her school's marching band. Another coincidence is both schools nickname is Indians.

Jessica's husband Craig, is a very good mechanic, something Mrs74 wishes I was. So she doesn't have to worry about having transportation in summer or winter. It's also convenient because they love to go snowmobiling, something I'm sure they did a lot of in the past couple of months.

Jessica has a real interest in birds as does several other blogger friends. You can go to her blog often and see her latest find from the friendly skies.

Another thing that keeps me coming back is the adventures of Seadra and Zoe, her two dogs. They look so innocent, but they only know what lurks in their minds. Hopefully they learned their lesson last fall about hanging around skunks.

This past Christmas season, Jessica organized a Christmas card exchange. It was through this exchange that I was introduced to Pigeon, a fellow northeast Buckeye. And it was via this exchange that the recipients got a poem from me that I did not publish on any of my blogs.

Visit Jessica at Five Pines, or willimakeadifference.blogspot.com. And I will tell you again Jessica, you have!

I love Jessica's blog! She has inspired me to learn more about birds, and to buy a better camera with a zoom lens. (for taking better close ups of the birds) She's the best.

Thanks Cliff for the shout out to Jessica. You're a good fellow about introducing people in the blogging community who might not otherwise meet.

Oh, I'm so sorry Clif... I hadn't seen this. I'm so glad that you told me to look for it. I was out of town last week and missed it. I should have known something was up because when I got home I had several new friends comment on my blog and they said they came via you but I figured it was from the bird poem you did the other day.

It's amazing to me that you can remember such details like when I first commented on your birthday and so much about my family, etc..... It's great knowing there are people out there like you.

Thank you AGAIN Cliff!

Jessica: It seems to me last time you were the topic if I Like...Because, you were on vacation. My timing can be so rotten at times.
