Well Well Well.....Look what the cat drug in....G-Man!!!!!!
You know for 6 glorious years, Thursday nights was the highlight of my blogging week.
At 8:00 PM EST or EDST, I posted my weekly Flash Fiction Friday 55, and invited
any interested party from Blogdom to join the fun. I have met some very talented and
wonderful folks along the way, and I was honored to host the bevy of talent that participated.
These past few months starting in April with my daughter and son-in-law visiting from Poland
where they now reside, I knew that I couldn't devote the time and energy in the upcoming
months to do the Meme justice. So sadly I passed the torch on....
But I will say that I used my extra time to work hard, relax, and do a tremendous amount
of fishing. car sales has been awesome, and I have a freezer full of fish!!! I miss blogging
and maybe this Winter I'll be around a bit more.
One of the very talented people that I've met and you all know is Laura Hegfield from..
Shine the Light Divine. Every year about this time Laura puts together a Gratitude Quilt.
It's offerings from fellow bloggers about what they are really really thankful for at the moment.
With Thanksgiving in a week, she makes you stop and think about what this very
American Holiday is all about. It's not about Black Friday sales, or kicking off the Christmas
shopping frenzy, it's about Family, Friends, and the Joy of Living.
Please visit Laura
Contribute to her quilt please, it doesn't have to be artsy, just honest and heartfelt....Thanks

Great to see you, Galen! You look rested and happy. Glad you caught a ton of fish to last through the long Michigan winter ahead. I do miss your Flash Fiction Friday was a highlight of my week. If you decide to resume it, I'll be around. Smiles. Happy Thanksgiving to you.

Hi, Galen. Very nice to hear from you and read you used your time well. Looking forward to reading more from you. I second Mary on the 55.

Laura said...

Thanks so much Galen for your very kind words and invitation to others to join the Quilt. I'm glad you had a wonderful visit with your family and an enjoyable summer/autumn… funny I wrote a 55 the other day and was thinking of you my friend. I third Mary and Gagriella's comments. Here's a link for old time's sake:

So glad you've been enjoying life. Nice of you to write about Laura. Her quilt is something very special. I didn't write the 55 with regulaity, but enjoyed it so much when I did. Hope you do get to blog more often. Your posts always project such good humor.
Take care.

Are you buried under all the snow? My friends up North are threatening to defined me if I post any more fall-like photos. Either that or they are coming to visit and will stay a very long time :) ha.

I'm so glad you have a freezer full of fish and enjoyed your time off. I too miss the original community of the 55 but I am glad we have a remnant of it over at "The Garden". Hope you are well and enjoy a fabulous Thanksgiving!

I love Laura's quilt and the moment it takes to sit and reflect on what we are truly grateful fabulous friends like you, Galen. :)

I'm glad you've had some time to do other things beyond 55's. They're fun, of course, (you are the host with the most and irreplaceable), but life is rich outside computer-land (plus, when you come back just think of all the inspiration you'll have for future 55's).

Wishing you and your family a joy-filled and beautiful Thanksgiving.
