Let there be DRUM ROLLS...

What better day than on JAVA's FOLLOW FRIDAY to do the unveiling?

So here it is - the new Purple Cow "me" - courtesy of my creative and talented fellow blogger extraordinaire (more drumrolls please): The amazing LJ Ducharme who muses behind the guise of a mugwhump. CLICK HERE TO REACH HER BLOG... Isn't it cool?

I never saw a Purple Cow,
I never hope to see one;

But I can tell you, anyhow,
I'd rather see than be one!
 Who'd have thought that when I clicked the NEXT BLOG button a few months ago, I would be just a click away from the new "me". I'm told that I'm 3 inches tall but thanks to grand gestures like this it feels more like 10 feet!

Thank you so much LJ for your inspirational Purple Cow that already has rejuvinated my interest in blogging.

So guys, if you want a new "you", too... You know where to click.

PS In a short space of time I received a lovely package with lip gloss and Canadian chocolates from Ro (CLICK HERE), a letter addressed to me by Robin (CLICK HERE) and now THIS... I am so humbled. Thank you. I would never have guessed that blogging could be such a fun and rewarding experience.

What a lovely purple cow from your friend! I'll definitely check her out. I'm here following from Java's 40 & Over Follow Friday, but I also recognize you from Robin's "Your Daily Dose". I believe we were both featured yesterday in her Here's To You Thursday post too!

I had a mother who was similar to yours (from the little I've had a chance to read so far) but my mom was so oblivious to what she was doing when she interfered that you almost couldn't stay mad at her. She would also back off if I had enough and told her to stop. At least until the next thing she needed to educate me about popped into her head....

Stop on over and say hello and follow back if you'd like to.

Wishing you peace and blessings,
Martha at
