This one is for "Do Something Nice" (Oct. 5th) because the lady at the park saw me crying (even though I had my sunglasses on) and asked me if I was OK, when I explained her why she asked me to take off my glasses and turn around to take this pic with the castle in the background. That was so very nice of her.

THE 1ST. TIME I SAW THE CASTLE By ELLANVANNIN


In this case though the verses I chose for the journaling say "wild and free", they also mean "bald and free" for me so it fits for "Bald and Free" (Oct. 7th) and "Be Bald and Free" (Oct. 14)

I am racing against the clock to finish at least one or two challenges. So here is one for this one.
Christmas Present 54/50 By T-towngirl

I am big fan of Anthony Bourdain. Anyways, I had gone to see him six months prior in Bakersfield, CA. and was very disappointed that I had not got to do the meet and greet. So my kids, knowing how crazy I am about him, decided to buy me tickets to go see him in Palm desert.

Well, some of you know I am a little crazy, so I blew up the picture of me and him and framed it and it's actually sitting on my living room end table. When I showed the picture to my grand daughter, (she was younger) she said "Oh granny, your lover boy" and I said "NO papa is my lover boy" her response was "Papa is just your husband" Like the way she thinks.
This is for National Talk show host October 23rd.
