P-A-R-T-Y

Happy National Punctuation Day. Lots of celebrations going on around the country. Here's a link to THE National Punctuation Day's website. http://www.nationalpunctuationday.com/index.htm

It was started by Jeff Rubin seven years ago. This year there is a Haiku contest going on. Your entry has to be in by September 30. Good luck and remember, ' it's not possessive. (^_^)

  2. Good heavens, what a coincidence. Just this morning I decided to do the last blog post on my punctuation series! A good article to be writing on national punctuation day.

    Hugs to Christopher (and only two more sleepies until someone's birthday!)

  6. Judy, I'm heading over to your place right now. I will have to read that and get caught up with you. My son's facebook account was hacked and when I got a message from him, of course I opened it. VIRUS. So I'm on my laptop and trying to decide if I want to keep my facebook.

    Christopher sends hugs and more hugs (his words) back to you. He treasures you and dreams of meeting you someday. :)

    Yep, only two more and somebody is another year older. YIKES! *hugs* Judy and loads of love sent to you.
