Sign and Sunshine

Ocean House

This weekend my Dad reminded me of this photo I took in his back yard about 10 years ago. A large print hangs in his office. He's a doc & one of his older patients recognized the sign. He told my Dad all about working at the Ocean House Fish Market "back in the day". I love hearing stories like that.

Lucky Me! The sweet Midwestie Lady has given me the Sunshine award today. Supposed to go "to bloggers whose positive and creativity inspires others in the blog world." Now I don't know that I exactly fit the bill, but I do say Thank You! I'm now supposed to pass it on to 12 others. (Twas hard to pick just 12.) Click on the links below to visit.

I know lots of folks don't bother with blog awards but if these folks choose to play along here are the basic rules:

1. Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
2. Pass the award to 12 bloggers.
3. Link the nominees within your post.
4. Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

Even if they are too busy to play, these bloggers are worth visiting, so pop by and say hello if you get a chance - okay?

I'm on a bit of a ramble today but 1 final note. Last chance to enter the random drawing for Kim Smith's Over The Rainbow bracelet. Just leave a comment before 1 a.m. EST on 2/25 to enter. Also pop back tomorrow - I'll announce the winner as well as the new giveaway prize.
