Friends Glitter Graphics

I have just published my 100th post! I can't believe the time has gone so fast. I have met so many wonderful blogging friends and all of you hold a very special place in my heart.

To celebrate this special occasion, I am having a give-away.
Please leave a comment on this post - and tell me what you like best about my blog. Is it the China stories? The scenic pictures? Or the Show and Tell? Or just say "Hello!" And next week, I'll let you know who I will be sending this little surprise to.

Thanks for being such special friends!!!
Just Ruthie

HI Ruthie,
It was good to see you again thanks for dropping by. I really like your China stories and the photos that go along with each of them. I guess it's because I like to read about someone's else's adventures to places I probably won't ever have a chance to go to.

Happy 100th Post.. "Yay"

Hi Ruthie, Thanks for visiting my blog. My best friend and only sister's name is Ruthie. This is my first visit. I love the hummingbirds. We put hanging baskets of fuschia on the back porch. The hummingbirds love them but I have yet to get a good photo. Also, we visited Elk County about a month ago and will visit again next month. We go to Benezette where it is common to see the elk laying in people's yards. I am putting your blog on my blog list. Later today I'll take time to really peruse your old posts. We were at Wal-Mart at 7 am and then went to the grocery store and to the green house to buy fall mums. My hubby, Johnny, likes to avoid crowds when shopping. I took a break from putting groceries away and have to get back to that task.
