My Book, My Ghosts, My Pen Pal, My Posts
This past month has been nothing but vacation, vacation, vacation for me – maybe not YOUR idea of vacation – my mother, as a matter of fact, would call this type of vacation Hell. You see, most of my "vacation" has been taking care of some of my grandchildren. So – restful it is not, but fulfilling it is. I rarely get to see my son and his family, so this vacation has been a real treat for me (yes, I said treat – inside joke to my kids and some of their friends who know us).
As always, I am surprised that I get any writing done at all with so many interruptions, but apparently I have completed some articles and blogs over the past month, and here they area (read what appeals to you – comments are always welcome):

This story, related to me by my daughter-in-law, Michelle, was so funny, I asked her permission to blog about it. If you have more than one child or if you are from a family with even one sibling, you will enjoy this blog.

What's Happening to Florida's Trees?
One of the things that surprised me about my trip to Florida was the Spanish Moss that hung from the trees starting in southern Georgia and all the way to Clearwater, Florida. They looked ugly from a distance, but when I downloaded the pictures, they looked almost pretty. Click the link for a slide show.

Take the Mr. Coffie Challenge Regarding High Page Views on Associated Content from Yahoo!
Not a typo – Mr. Coffie DID challenge Associated Content writers to post their page views. Some people have commented that by posting our best articles, we are opening ourselves up to plagiarism, but I'm keeping an eye on Google Alerts to see if any of the ones I've posted have been stolen. If you are a writer who wants to rise to this challenge, I suggest you do the same.
