My neice, Wild Child, gave birth early to her twin boys. You know, the ones that I Photoshopped tiaras onto?

And yesterday? Memarie Lane went into labour, and live blogged the event. Whew!

I take my hat off to both of them.

And? I take my furniture inside in honour of Hurricane Kyle, which is fast approaching hereabouts. It’s supposed to make landfall this evening. So there is battening down of the hatches, putting the frozen meat in the big freezer, checking batteries, candles, storm windows, and supplies. I hope we don’t lose power, but if we do, there will be no phone or internet.

Another Hurricane guy, Coast Rat, who left his home up north a few years ago to help rebuild after Hurricane Katrina has since had to hang onto his hat for Hurricane Gustav. (It must be discouraging to get damage on top of the damage you are trying to clean up.)

He is a photographer with an amazing eye, and I so enjoy his images and stories. He told me I could help myself to them for my puzzles, and so I present to you, quite a treat.

After much nagging (by moi) to move from the evil blogspot to WordPress, my blog buddy,Memarie Lane bit the bullet and packed her posts and comments over to her own domain name.

Only problem with that is that she lost her Google Page Rank. So we need to remedy that. Yes, it was my bad, but you all can help. She’s having herself a great housewarming giveaway contest thing with lots of cool prizes.

See the pretty button on the sidebar? You could win one of your own choosing. It probably wouldn’t say Memarie Lane because that wouldn’t be your blog, but hey, you get my drift, dontcha?

A blog header is also up for grabs, and I do love me some blog headers. Also, some pretty cool books. You just get yourself over there and enter her contest, and you can not only help her page rank, but maybe win yourself some cool schwag.

Also? Tell her how pretty it looks over there, because it does. And the same talented designer who made her blog so pretty is offering the button and header. Cool huh?

What are you waiting for? Make sure you tell her I sent you. Scoot!
