A Bit of This and That

Well, since blogger won't allow me to upload photos or even a divider, I am going to bring you up to date on the news.

My youngest grandson, Jordan, is a big Ottawa Senator's fan. He's always wanted to go to a game. He has an Ottawa Senator's coat, hat, shirt, towel and blanket. He lives and breathes the Senators where hockey is concerned.

My daughter, Michelle, was able to get free tickets to an Ottawa Senator's NHL hockey game. A neighbour had won them and was unable to attend. So, because Jordan is such a huge Senator's fan, he was chosen to get the tickets. The game was against the Buffalo Sabres and took place in Buffalo. This meant crossing the border and of course that is no easy task in this day and age.

Jordan and his father left here at approximately 5pm for a 7:30 pm game. That should have given them lots of time to get there, but something happened. Visit Michelle's blog to find out the very odd thing that happened to Barry and Jordan at the border.

In other news, (sorry the divider wouldn't upload) Chicken Soup for the Soul is looking for stories from everyday people for several books. I submitted one today for A Book of Miracles. Deadline for this book is March 31, 2009.

They are also looking for submissions for several other books, including, In Harm's Way - Honoring Our Military. This is the Call for Submissions that they placed on their website:

An amazing collection of 101 stories from soldiers who defend and protect our country – both active and retired – and from their families who make sacrifices when their loved ones are far away. You will be overcome with emotion as you read these stories that will acknowledge, entertain and inspire you and will leave you with admiration and gratitude for our nation’s best and brightest. The deadline date for story submissions is March 31, 2009.

If you are from a military family, be sure to send in your amazing story. You don't have to be a professional writer, just tell the story from your heart.

For more information on Chicken Soup for the Soul, visit their Looking for Stories page on their website.

Take care and have a great Friday the 13th. ~Blessings, Mary~


  1. I think I will try to write a Miracle story .......thanks for the information...... I have had three real miracles in my life...... I am not sure which one I will write about....It did not say how long or how many words did it? Would that be something or what! Who knows............

    I am headed over to Michelle blog now and see what she is writing..

    Have a great Friday girl..... I am busy in my shop...hope to have pictures soon......... :)

  2. That story of Michelle's is really s omething! Wow - that procedure he had done sounds quite unpleasant! But glad Jordan got to see his team play.

    I should write up one of our miracles. Thanks for the heads up.

  3. We've got some of the chicken soup books here, my children love reading them too. wow what a deal on the tickets, I"ll head over to Michelle's blog to see what happened.

  4. I might try to write something for them. Have a good night...m..

  5. Mary
    Wow, I had to read four post to catch up. Love the photos of Michelle burpday and Dakato is so cute. I bet the boys really enjoy him. You might have to have them over more to help with the baby. LOL I will pop over to Michelle's to see what happen. Have a wonderful weekend Peace and Love

  6. Hi Mary....I've been kinda lazy the last day or so, and haven't been visiting normally like I'd like to do,....I did see Michelle's post about the hockey game/tickets.

    And as for your divider not uploading [I'm not sure if you mean a graphic divider]...upload it to a page all it's it as a draft and then when you want it to be used often...just go back to the 'draft' link on the right hand side of your edit/compose section of your blog, click on 'draft' and all your drafted entries will come the one where you saved your divider, and copy and paste the html to your new post...the drafted divider will always be there for future use.

    Happy day.

  7. He saw a victory in what has been an abysmal year, including the second part of last season. Maybe this new coach, their fourth in two years, can get them rolling. They've won three in a row.

  8. I love heart warming stories and you all post such good ones.

    I've never seen a pro hockey game in Spokane Washington. I use to go and watch the chiefs play.
    Which is smaller league.
    But still I also like hockey.

    Coffee is on and now I got chocolate for today.

  9. Now I'm curious-I'm headed to Michelle's to see what happened at the border.

  10. mary...I look forward to visiting Michelle's blog. I must tell you, I always leave your blog, feeling blessed.
    Thank you!

    be taken from any show telecasted in specific country. Brazenhead is a great place
    to go with your family or for a business lunch or dinner,
    but if you are looking for a party atmosphere, this isn't it. 8.
