Richard, you are hilarious!!
I’ll take an autographed copy of your first book. Loved your stories! Always knew there was more to you than meets the eye.
Thanks for your time in visiting my page. I’ve clicked the Follow button so I can be updated of your new posts immediately. Godbless ! 🙂
yes… with a broad smile I worked my way through the writings… of course… a deep twinge of the heart here and there, especially on the son and daughter pieces. Thank you for wrapping words around the real life with humility and a sideways smirk. It would be an honor to pull some of these into the Devotional… truth is truth.
Thank you for reading; I promise I wasn’t begging. And if I ever have the honor of writing for you one of these months, I also promise to keep the focus where it belongs. Thanks again!
hey richard! wondering where you got the amazing photo of the birds flying as your header…
thanks… nancy (you can see from my site why i would appreciate it…)
Those are my daughters running through a sea of gulls sitting on the beach in Cambria, CA. I got lucky! I will visit your site as soon as I can.
“Richard has always been a closet writer, but started this blog at his computer, where he can see better.” Great line!
Yay! I thought so too; now I can leave it(thought about changing it). Visited your blog briefly; will send more time when things calm down. What kind of bucket list do you make when you’re(me, actually) broke?
I enjoy your style of writing, really hilarious!
That’s the best thing you could say to me. Thank you so much.
Great blog, excellent writing. Freshly Pressed does it right once in a while!
That’s a nice thing to say! Thanks!
What a fabulous writing style you have! I absolutely love reading! The post about Tucson drivers is great – I went to UA and can relate. I don’t have to deal with drivers so much now anymore – we moved to Germany and my main mode of transportation is a bicycle. Keep up the good work, and I’ll keep reading!!!
Thank you! I love Germany; I have relatives in Ludwigsbourg. Haven’t been in ten years, but we will go back. You’re so lucky! What area, I wonder?
We’re in Duesseldorf. Feel free to check out my blog – ChanceofSun – I’m writing a little about my transition from Arizona to Germany. Certainly good fodder for the creative brain… 🙂
You are so fortunate! I promise I will visit; if I find anyone around here with a creative brain, I’ll have them do the same.
Hello! I have nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award, details of which can be found on my site: http://chanceofsun.wordpress.com/2012/02/15/for-me/. Hope you don’t mind – this is a nice way for me to say that I really enjoy reading your blog!
Thanks for doing that! As long as there’s no nudity(on my part), I’m all for it. I’ll fulfill the requirements as soon as I can. Thanks again!
he he he 🙂 I really do love your sense of humor…
Yay! It’s the key to my heart: just laugh at me! Wait…
I think you do a fantastic job! I love your voice, it brings sunshine to my day so I nominated you for a Sunshine Award but I’d be totally surprised if it was your first!
It’s my first Sunshine Award! Very well; I accept! And thank you so much. No one’s ever mentioned me and sunshine together, unless I was blocking it for them.
It is so great to find another aspiring writer. You have done great things with your posts here, so keep penning and keep inspiring! I am sure the door will open for you one day. 🙂
I have a joyful ride in your blog, and now I’d like to invite you to visit mine. Thank you and have a wonderful day, my friend! 🙂
Thank you, sir; those are very kind words. I will visit soon!
I’ve nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award! Thank you for your great work!
Yay for me! Thank you, sir; I appreciate your sticking with me. Enjoy your site very much.
Hello! Thanks for reading!
I completely dig your writing. Glad to find you. Bravo bravo
Yay! I’m glad too! I’ll visit soon as well.
Hi! I just nominated you for the Very Inspirational Blogger Award! I’ve included a link to your site on my blog. You can accept and view the details at chanceofsun.wordpress.com.
Yay for me! That’s a new one, I think; sweet of you!
That’s me! 🙂
The about made me chuckle a few times! My three cats just happened upon me, and this professor just can’t take it! 😉
I know what you mean. They came upon me via a raging torrent of animal sympathy (my wife); I can barely keep from drowning.(Up to nine now, by the way).
Oh dear. Nine? I couldn’t imagine. Are they mostly male?
All but one; though all have been rendered, shall we say, reproductively ineffective.
