Due to technical difficulties ...

January 17/ 09

Hi everybody. I just want to let you know that I won't be blogging for a while.

My computer crashed and I don't know how long it's going to be til it's up and running again. Mama's been on the phone for bazillions of hours with Dell Tech Support trying to get the problems straightened out. She's ready to chuck "the damn laptop right out the window." Uh oh. Poor Mama. I don't know how to get it fixed so all I can do is sit by and give her big, sympathetic lickies.

Right now I'm using a computer in Papa's office but I can't do this very often. So for now I won't be visiting your blogs and I won't be blogging. I'm really going to miss all of you. But as soon as my laptop is working, I'll check in with you again. Take care and I'll log in as soon as I can.

In the meantime, here is an award I got this week from my sweet friend Abby:

We all think of friends that are close-by.
But friends that are far away are different.
Diana Cortes wrote it this way: "There is magic in
long-distance friendships. They let you relate to others in a
way that goes beyond being physically together and
is often more profound."

How beautiful is that? Thank you, Abby. Our friendship is very,very special to me.

I got this award from my nice new friends, Tucker, Oscar and Tinkerbell at Nibbletreats.

The fine print: Here's the Friend Bloggy Award Scoop:
These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text and pic into the body of their award.

Thanks so much for giving me these awards. It's a huge honour and I appreciate it so much. As soon as I get back to blogging, I will pass them on.
Bye for now.
