It's Friday again so here's what we're celebrating:
  • I wrote a little blog about my dad this week. He passed away in 1996 and we still miss him.
  • My husband's little car, Margaret, went to the repair shop for exhaust system work. She behaved very well during the trip.
  • My author friend, Janice Spina, sent me new pictures of her precious grandson, Sebastian. He's even smiling in one of them!
  • A perfect stranger showed me a random act of kindness this week when I was at the post office. She was an example that there are many unsung heroes in the world. I'm hoping to return the favor for her soon.

Please stop by this link and vote for Katherine Anthony's beautiful cover!

Special thank you to everyone for stopping by and happy weekend to all of you!

  3. That's true, Susanne. It's the second time that something totally unexpected and especially kind happened to me, or to us, as a family.

    Ah, Margaret. I do hope she is better! And seeing baby Sebastian's picture, with a smile no less, is indeed precious :D

    1. Margaret is feeling well. She wasn't sick, but she had her exhaust system modified.
      Sebastian is so cute and he already has lots of hair. Our boys were bald for the longest time! D

    1. Thanks, Tyrean. We name all of our cars. Margaret is a little English sports car, named for our English friend. I'm working on a story about the little car. D
      Thanks for stopping by and happy weekend.

  9. "Margaret"! Ha! It sounds like a 60s Mini-Cooper. I'm glad she behaved well though. That random-act-of-kindness sounded lovely. We all need to do and receive more of those. Have a lovely weekend. :-)

  10. Margaret is very cute. Next week I'll put her picture here. We don't have a picture that's actually her, but I found one on line that looks exactly like her.
    The random act was very sweet. Wishing you a lovely weekend, too.

  11. Margaret---a good name for a car. We name all our cars too! My new car is called Black Betty. We also had the blue bonnet, the hondo, and the silver bullet. Hahahaaa...
    Hope you're having a good weekend, Deanie.

  12. Thank you, Cathrina. It seems to fit and our friend was very excited when she learned we named our car in her honor. I like the names of your cars. They're very cute. We figured if our cars had names, they'd be well behaved and devoted to us. )
