BLOGGER SIGHTING ....

Good morning, all.



I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Chicago's kicked into spring BIG TIME. Brightly colored flowers are popping out all over the city. Warm breezes and bright light caressed our fair city this weekend. As for today a good start, but storms plan on rolling in later today...

BUT that will not stop me from meeting up with one of my FAVORITE blogger friends and 80's Guru, Nicki Elson. Once a year we meet to celebrate our birthdays! How cool is that! We are only a few days and few years apart. LOL. But we are both Taurus' and today is the official LAST DAY of this amazing celestial sign. So the bulls will be ruling in Chicago today.

I'll be sporting my ORIGINAL 80's Rayban sunglasses as a special surprise for her. Let's see if she notices. LOL.

Wishing you all as fun an afternoon as I plan to have.

On a special note, I had just visited The Writer's Alley and Sheri Larson posted on an extremely important issue faced with m/g and y/a writers. Drop by and read her post, my jaw dropped.  There are also links to articles WE ALL NEED to be aware of, so please click here and read this post.

I plan to post more about this subject matter on Wednesday, so please pop back over here if you can.

I will probably have a few pics of my meeting with Nicki as well....

Have a great day everyone!

  1. Sounds like fun! Birthdays should never be just one day celebrated - it should be planned out as a month of celebration (or at least a week!). :)

  6. Hope it's a great birthday lunch for the two of you!

    Please do show pix, I love photos. Taurus types can be 'bull-headed' but they can also be loyal to a fault.

  9. Give Nicki a wink from me and Victor will you? Have a great birthday lunch, too.

    Wish me luck, Michael. Today THE BEAR WITH 2 SHADOWS came out on audio today. What if Hibbs speaks, and no one listens? Scary time.

  21. What fun, Michael! I hope you had fun celebrating. That is so cool that it's an annual thing. Now that's positive!

    P.S. I saw what Sheri wrote and was disgusted. Everyone should read that blog post. Late happy birthday. xoxo

  22. How nice it is to see a blogger friend face to face! I don't remember much about how Ray Bans looked like in the '80s, but I remember this sunglasses trend where the ear pieces were all in bright neon colors.

  23. Sounds like you had a great time. Yay for you and Nicki!

    I personally hate this weather and wish that we could keep 50's and 60's all through summer. At least we turned our air on, thank God. I though I was going to die each time I stepped outside during that Africa hot weather we had.
