Reminder

If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....
me at yahoo dot com
this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

And The 500th Post Winner Is.............

Drum-roll please............................................................................................. Joanne! Congratulations to you and thanks to all who participated. Joanne, if you would "E" me, I'll get the ball rolling your way. To all my Followers, blogging friends and my "wacky" sisters, this old girl has really enjoyed this world of blogging, facebooking and twittering. I never thought much about living in the 21st century......only thought about getting to retirement.....well, I'm there and very happy about it. Boy, have things changed. I've got a cell phone, a car cell phone thingy (hands free), a GPS (Marg, that's her name), a gauge that tells me my tires are low, a flat screen TV that's light weight with brilliant color, satellite service (no more antennae), microwave, which is old hat nowadays, and many other things that don't come to mind at the moment. Someone once asked, "If you could bring back one person who would it be and why?" I thought of my dear granddad who passed away in 1982. He would really love all this modern technology. I could just see him hunched over a computer, using his two finger method of typing to communicate with .....whoever is another state........getting a might frustrated on how to send a email.....call out to me, "Rhondee," that's what he always called me....."Rhondee, tell me how this new fangled thing works again!" It makes me laugh and brings tears to my eyes at the same time because I know that old man would have loved all this.............anyway, I don't know where I was going with that thought but.....Thanks for visiting my blog and being a friend! Take care, all!!!!!

I know what you mean...not too many years ago my thoughts were, "What do I need a computer for?" Then we got one and I enjoyed doing IM with the kids and grands. Almost 3 years ago my DIL sent me the address to QuiltingBebbs blog..and I was hooked. I discovered that just by clicking on the comments I'd meet other quilters.Then my daughter told me it wasn't fair to always be a lurker so she got me started with my own blog. It has been so much fun meeting people all around the world. I enjoy seeing where people live even if they don't make a comment.

And I never wanted a microwave, yes, and now we have a flat screen TV too. We sure haven't mastered the TV though...Haven't done an "on demand" movie. I'm thinkin' about it though.

Always enjoy your posts...love your black,gray and red quilt!!
