Hugs and Kisses
I fell out of bed this morning still fighting the remaining troops of the "Bird Flu Virus Clan" and had decided early on there would be no post today. I know, I know, I can hear the clapping of hands from the cheap seats, but for those of you who came to see the show, hold on to your ticket. Stephen is in the house! I took the advise of a good friend and took a few extra days to rest and get some cuddling in, even if the cuddling he was talking about was with a blanket, which happens to be the story of my life, but that's another story, for another day. Rest, blanket cuddling, and visiting friends in the "Land of Cyber" . . . I had my day all planned out, it's an exciting life, I know, what can I say. People are constantly lining up at my door wanting to trade lives, their's for mine, but I keep turning them away. Gosh, you got to be saying, "Stephen is really sick, quick, call the medics, the fever is raging, his brain is frying, he's obviously delirious." I agree, the fever is raging, be damn those "Hordes of Demons" sent by the alien to torment my wretched soul but delirium has not set in yet. One of the nicest things happened to me today and I could not let today pass by without sending back some love and genuine thanks from my heart. It was in the form of a ShoutOut from a fellow friend and blogger I have had the honor of meeting since I started on this journey. Below is the Shoutout:

Well, it's been awhile since I "shouted out" to a few of my favorite bloggers -- so it's that time again. I have chosen another few buddies to "put in the spotlight" because their blogs are just so incredibly fabulous...here we go:
1) Stephen...I don't even know where to start. This guy has totally changed my life for the better. Stephen and I have become best buddies here in blogland as well as in life and I am a better person for it. Basically, we're kinda soul mates. He is sometimes serious, sometimes simple, often times funny, sometimes deep - but he is always honest and humble and offers a glimpse of life that we might otherwise take for granted. Stephen's gift is that he sees the world through a unique pair of eyes that allow him to see the very best in people. Everyone is valuable and priceless and irreplaceable in Stephen's eyes. If Stephen is your friend, you've got a friend for life! He also has an eye for the most beautiful men and all you have to do is take a look at his site to see what I'm talking about. Many of you, my faithful readers, are already friends of Stephen -- but if you are someone who has not yet had the pleasure of meeting this guy, you simply MUST go visit his blog. You will not be the same. He truly has a way of making a positive impact on your life - and he does it by simply being himself. Love you Stephen -- thanks for adding a "kickass" load of wonderful to my life as my new best buddy! You're beyond incredible.
Guys, what can I say, this touched my heart, we are all here for a reason, the reasons we blog are as varied as those of us who blog. When I started this journey, I never dreamt the family of friends that would come into my life. When I say, I am the one who has been blessed, the words come from my heart. Rob (aka, Ziggy) was the sweetheart that gave me the ShoutOut, and in return I dedicate today's photo pick to him. Hey, what's a little kiss between friends, hugs and kisses Rob. And by the way, if you've never been by Ziggy's Lounge, you don't know what you're missing. Trust me, I know the proprietor on a first name basis, drop in and say, "Hi, tell Ziggy, Stephen sent me."
