Friday's at the Piedmont Grille

Good morning gentle readers. Today is very short and very laid back.

Julie Dao at Silver Lining is having a contest for reaching 200! Yay. Congratulations.

Matthew Rush is hosting guest blogger Rachele Alpine from Freckle Head today. Check it out.

It must be a banner week or something; I hit 100 friends, Shelley Sly and Elaine Smith did too. Anybody else? I know there is I just can't think. It's too early without caffeine.

I'd like to say Thank You and Welcome to Zoe, Paul, Bish, Shannon, MT, Christa, and Meghan. Thanks for filling out my little faces box. I've got a buffet set up in the dining room and the pool is officially open, however bathing suits are required.

I told you this was going to be short. Have a lovely weekend everyone. Be safe and watch out for those thunderstorms.

Have a great weekend. I'm looking forward to following your blog!

roxy said...

Hey, cool lady. Thanks for the helpful comments and support over at my blog. I have a small gift to show my appreciation. Could I get your address to mail it to you? roxyhaynie@mac.com

Ann Best said...

From Ann to Anne. (I once signed my name with an "e" on a story, but then it didn't feel like me so I went back to plain Ann.) I found you via Funhouse, this morning as I'm making a few new connections. Reading through your posts, I can see I want to follow you. Your writing sparkles. What you write is very interesting. And all you've written!! I hope they find a publisher so I'll get to read them. You've got to hurry! I'm turning 70 in a month, though I doubt I'm near death (I have such amazingly good health), but I think I'm in an "older" mid-life crisis as I think about how much I want to do (though I do, finally, have a novel under contract, summer 2010 tentative publication). Recently I have become more relaxed about "growing older." Just do what you can, and enjoy what you do. My mother died at age 97 and I'm hoping I have her genes; Beverly Cleary (writer of the Ramona stories) just turned 94 and is looking wonderful. It can be done!!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Congrats on your follower milestone! 100 is terrific!

Thanks for the links too. And for your wonderful comments on my last post. You are, as always, beautifully encouraging.

Piedmont Writer said...

Rena -- Glad you're here.

Roxy -- Thank you so much.

Ann -- Thank you for all your lovely comments. Believe me I'm trying to write as fast as I can. It's so funny, I always think of authors as ageless, timeless.

Carolina -- Thank you dearest, you are, as always, beautifully encouraging.

Lisa and Laura said...

I'm so excited for all the spring thunderstorms...unfortunately it SNOWED here today. It never ends.

Jen said...

I have an award for you!!

She Writes said...

I am amazed at how some bloggers keep up with all these contests and other writers... Sigh....

Can barely keep my own blog rolling on.

Susan Fields said...

I hope you had a lovely weekend too (as it's now Sunday night and almost over). And congrats on 100 followers!
