Thank you! It's been a while since I received a blogging award! So is that THE U of M that you enjoy hanging out at? If so, let me know when you're heading to Ann Arbor :)

Karen, I'm not sure if my post is going to show up or not so I'll wait a bit to see if it does... my computer keys are tired right now! lol I'll check back and if it doesn't show up I'll repost. Cheers!

Everyone is surely welcome and so worthy of this award...aren't they kind of fun, it gives us a chance to poke around and check out other blogs as well!

Sage! You are welcome, and actually it's the U of Minnesota right now (so much closer) my daughter's school too, and it's like another world out there apart from it all...features are many, the Northrop Hall has exceptional shows, the Weisman Art Museum ever changing schedule of events, their latest construction :( have you ever seen the building?

Darlin, I know you'll get it posted and I'll come check it out!

!! Thanks for thinking of me !!

I love unplanned road trips, too. Luckily, the husband does, too, or it would involve lots of pulling and pushing!

Juniper said...

Congratulations! I hope you won't be a scary birthday clown WHEN you become one ;-)


Judie said...

Karen, thanks for the honor! Since I a currently oxygen deprived because of all the plaster dust in the air from the remodel, I am a little late reading this. I will be happy to tell people 7 things about myself as soon as I can blow all the plaster, etc., out of my nose. More later!

Karen S. said...

Thanks Judie and Juniper, and I promise only happy go lucky and silly fancy free clowns in my world!
