For My Guests. . .via Dr. John

Well, although I can't get through to the list to verify, rumor has it that I'm on Dr. John's Marathon List. If this is true, Dr. John, I am not worthy, but I thank you for your kindness.

I hope this isn't "cheating," Dr. John, but I would ask guests to indulge me by reading a difficult post I wrote, Blood Done Sign My Name It is about a phenomenal book, written by Timothy Tyson. Although the subject matter is heavy, the book was wonderful and enlightening to read. Which is more than I can say for my blog review, LOL, but I hope you read it anyway.

Of course, if you are interested in "lighter fare," my last post, Do They Still Call It a Facial? should do the trick! It boggles the mind what people with too much money will do to relieve themselves of the excess.

Thanks so much for visiting and sorry, I didn't have time to come up with something new for today - we helped my mom celebrate her 75th birthday yesterday - and my freshman son is home from college for the week! All good things :-)

Thanks so much for visiting, bazza and chana - oh, and chana - enjoy Thanksgiving tomorrow! ;-)

The Rev. Dr. Kate said...

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend with your son and that you had a good time with you Mom yesterday. I tried to comment on Friday to your"facial" post, but blogger kept eating my responses! Too much conspicuous consumption in my view. I came to visit you all by myself!

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

Send my greetings to your mom who's celebrating her 75th birthday.
Just passing by from Dr. John.

Thanks for stopping by Rev. Kate - and not even looking for Dr. John points! Congrats to you, I see you made the Marathon list also - I have to agree with him on that choice.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes for mom - she was happy, almost all the grandkids were there (my daughter was MIA at college.) I am also enjoying the boy home from college - 6 weeks of college has changed him so much - for the better!

Sounds like you've had a wonderful weekend with your family, Sunflower. Enjoy!

Catch said...

Happy Birthday to Mom, happy to hear your son is home and I read the facial post...lol....wow, never heard of that! What people wont do!!!!! I am one of Dr Johns little people!

Lori's Minute said...

I am glad you are having a good week....Sent by Dr. John, a guy who has too much time on his hands and thinks the rest of us do, too (just kidding...we love going to his link picks!).

So nice to see more new names, Friday's Child, Catch and Lori - I promise to have something new up in a few days. Just too busy listening to my freshman's college stories now!

Nice to see those that visit regularly too, Velvet! Thanks as always - I consider you the "godmother" of this blog - I never would have attempted it, without your encouragement :-)

That Dr. John - you're right Lori, how DOES he do it? Finding the blog links, counting the points - it would take me all day! He has managed to gather together a lovely blog community.

There is definitely a direct correlation between money and decadence...

Here on Dr. John's Marathon!

I'm to huff, I'm to puff
and if this house does not fall
let you know, not to forget later
on Dr john @ fortesslinna to call

Sunflower Optimism said...

Thanks for stopping by, Tina of "hanging tree" fame!

Glad for the visit, Joe. I do miss my caffeine, now verboten by not one, but three of my doctors! Great tunnel photo, but the way.

Thanks for the poetry, Quasar - I hope my little house doesn't fall! I always like to visit Dr. John :-)
