It's time to celebrate again so here's my list for the week:
  • My gifted author  friend, Janice Spina, sent me her enchanting book, Louey the Lazy Elephant. He's so adorable. I hope you all stop by Amazon, or Janice's website: www.jemsbooks.wordpress.com to meet him! Here's where you can see him on Amazon: 
  •     http://www.amazon.com/Louey-Lazy-Elephant-Janice-Spina/dp/0615836534/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1376000128&sr=1-1&keywords=Louey+the+Lazy+Elephant
  • Our son, Brendan, celebrated his ninth "Legaversary" on Aug. 4. He was involved in a serious accident 9 years ago, which required complicated surgery on both broken legs. I always tell him to be especially careful on his Legaversary so it's an uneventful day. His legs are fine now so we're all blessed.
  • Kandy Kay Scaramuzzo has been kind enough to send me her book, Pie an Old Brown Horse (who knows what he's doing) for review. I'm looking forward to inteviewing Pie and Kandy, especially for my Kid's Korner page. I understand that Pie loves kids.  
  • I thank everyone who stops by to find out what we're up to and wish you all a wonderful weekend with lots to cheer about.

    1. Thank you, Catherina. It was very scary at the time. It was about a 7 hr. surgery and lots of recovery time. It helped a lot that we had an excellent doctor and that my husband is a physical therapist so he gave Brendan lots of treatments.

    1. Thanks, Nicole, I always send him a cute little e-card and he reports to me that it was an uneventful Legversary! He has a great attitude and that helped a lot with the healing process.

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. I"m a little nervous about the Insecure Writers Group, but I like encouraging people so it should be fine. New things always make me a little nervous at first.
      Happy weekend.

  7. Such a very cute cover! Sounds like a delightful book. I'm for any story to do with elephants. I'm so glad your son is doing well. That had to be an incredibly traumatic experience for him.

    1. Hi Katherine,
      I missed you. Hope your vacation was fun. The books were fun and so was the new interview with Pie, an old brown horse! He's really cute and very wise. Hope you have time to stop by and read it sometime. I just posted it last night.
