Have you noticed my new Header?  Any of you that know me, know by now that I am completely computer illiterate and "depend on the kindness of strangers"  to get me through the blogging process.
I have decided that the problem is that I don't know the terminology.  That's right.  For this reason is it nearly impossible to follow the directions given to me. I know.  Awful, huh?
Now...there is this lovely young woman (at least young to me) that for the past few years has been there for me.  Oh, there are others..for that matter, I don't think there is a single soul on there that isn't willing to give help in any way they can. 
Di, at The Blue Ridge Gal is always there.  Oh, she can be strict with me..and she is not one to mince words and if I get to a good guardian she just sprays me with a bit of water...I'm kidding, I'm kidding!!  :)
Well, I whined to her (knowing full well that she loves doing Headers etc.) and asked her to please, please straighten out the mess I had made of my blog.  And...of course she did.  This is a busy time of year and I was afraid and embarrassed by the mess my attempts to change my blog had done. 
Bless her heart.  In no time flat she had me straightened out and had me back on track. 
So..if you need a new Header..or whatever..she is your woman.  I was doing pretty good on the old blogger but now I can find nothing.  I know it takes time..but it is just so frustrating so it's good to have a "Blue Ridge Gal" in your life.  Her blog and button are on my sidebar.  Tell her Mona sent you. :)  I just wanted to give Diane a GRATEFUL shout out.  I LOVE my new Header..if you are reading this..thanks again, Di!  You are my blogging angel!
My loving daughter's old wagon that I am babysitting for her (though she says I can keep it) until she gets her new home.  But in the meantime..I have so much fun with it. 
Right now it is a cozy home for my little Snowman..(love 'em) The little wagon changes with the seasons.  The ..little Snowman..doesn't. :)
 Don't let that little split in the wood bother you.  It's been like that for ages..we just keep fixing it.  Some good wood glue and a clamp...all set.
See?  You are welcome to our porch, so come on over and sit a spell. 
Ohhhh..we Californians can talk like that too if we try.  Don't you even doubt it! :)
Lov'n hugs,
P.S.  The day passed.  I kept busy and I was with my best male friend on earth.  :)  PH is always there for me.  I am blessed.
And..I  sent Patrick to help the angels. :)  You know what I mean?  I know he is good at that.  He was always wonderful in a crisis.


  1. I did notice your new header and it looks perfect for you. Diane saved me as well and made a header for me many months ago. The Blue Ridge gal is the "go to gal" if you have questions and need a "new look.". It is the language/terminology that confuses both of us!

    There is no doubt . . . when visiting you, I receive a warm (Southern California) Snowman Porch WELCOME.

    Merry Christmas Mona . . . and a very Happy New Year!
