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.

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