My House Was Struck By Lightening

Hello Friends,

Miss me?  Our house had a lightening strike right next to it Friday night and all of our electronics were fried.  You know those surge protectors you put on everything?  They don't really work when there is a direct strike like that.  I am writing this at Panera Bread on my laptop.  I'll be back as soon as I can.  Please watch the video on the post below this one to find out about my birthday blog hop and the wonderful prizes you can win!



  1. So sorry to hear this happened to you. Thank GOD you and your family are ok. Everything can be fixed or replaced.

    Yes you have been missed. Hurry back to us.

    Hugs Nana

"When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
Loveliest season of the year."
