my guest post at Riyadh's blog.....also, aloha



Riyadh, author of the blog A Walk through My Life, offered to me the sweetest gift recently. He asked me to write the 100th post at his blog, and I was honored to do it. (The 100th post link takes you directly to the post, but his post preceding mine explains the marvels of our relationship developed via blogging.)

Who is this beautiful woman and what does she have to do with my guest post there? You'll just have to hop over to see, and please wish Riyadh well as he continues to develop his blog that he tends with such care.


Also, Aloha*!
Today is the 50th anniversary (click) of Hawaii becoming the 50th state of the U.S.A. I remember being quite excited over that happening when I was an eight-year-old kid. Here's another happy little kid to kick off what I hope will be a great weekend for everyone...

@Phoenix- I so appreciate that you left a lovely comment at Riyadh's blog following my post there, and also came here to leave another one. How thoughtful of you.

@YogaforCynics- Did you dad have pygmy goats when you were a little kid or did he have them later? They are so adorable. When I was in high school my cousin and I combined our cash and bought a goat, regular size. Since my cousin lived in CA and was only visiting us outside Reno the goat stayed with me. I named her Capricorn.

@secret, fragile skies- Can't tell you what your compliment means to me. Thank you so much.

@Riyadh- It's my pleasure to mention you!
Isn't that little goat perfect? I truly didn't know they could run that fast!
