Blog Hop at Becky's Place

Meeting new people and connecting with Followers who become friends are among the best parts of blogging.

It's mind-boggling to become "friends" with people you've never even met. But it happens every single day in blog land.

Now Becky Povich is a dear blogger friend who e-mailed me last night and told me about having her very first blog hop.   You can read all about it at   

Participants are asked to go to the blog of Robert Brault, a long-time freelance writer, and read several  quotes.

Then, participants tell what quote they liked best and mention it on their own blogs.

Personally, I liked this one:  

"Some days are such perfect disasters that there's really nothing to do but sit back and admire their perfection."

Who cannot identify with that?  We are all human and sometimes we  have disastrous days. 

So that's what the little scarecrow is doing in the photo at the top of this post. He's sitting back, arms outstretched, and taking it all in his stride.

Love your photo and the bloghop idea! I'll be checking it out in a few moments!

Happy Weekend!

That's a great quote, Susan! I HAVE had a day or two like that - and hope to remember this quote (and perspective) if/when it happens again!

Re., I haven't and probably won't participate "officially". I don't need to spend one more minute "hopping"!

I DO enjoy checking out new (to me) blogs, so will go check out these quotations when I hit the "post comment" button. Have a great weekend.

I like that quote too! And it sure gives a needed bit of humor on those kind of days! I have never participated in a blog hop. Sounds fun :)

I've used quotes from Robert Brault several times in the past and have visited the website. I done memes but not necessarily a blog hop. Will have to see what this one is all about. Hope your day is great. Tammy

Oh how I can relate to that quote! Sometimes, that is all you can do. Cute photo. Have a wonderful weekend!

What a darling decoration. I love it. I do not blog at all.

Hi Susan! Thanks so much for participating. Your name is included in the drawing! And a note to your other followers/comments, I guess I didn't know what to call my post about Robert. It's not really a Blog Hop, where people are expected to go around and comment on everyone else's. Just write about a saying/quote on your own blog, and list it on my Linky, and they are included in the drawing, too. Does that make sense? I will add that info to my original post. Have a wonderful day!

I understand the quote and I have even have days like this - where I sit back and wonder how it happened - but thank God they don't happen often!!! sandie

Susan, thanks so much for joining in this. I'm pretty overwhelmed by Becky's generosity in starting the ball rolling. And what a thoughtful bunch of readers you have. Really nice comments. smiles, rb.
