TALU Tuesday

As of my child-like bedtime last night, we weren't proceeding with our regularly-scheduled TALU programming today.

Or we were.

But this old broad needed some sleep and couldn't stay up any longer till it was sorted out.

So please accept my apologies if there is no link this morning.

Or please accept my invitation to link up if it's on.

Or.... I don't know, I'm confused.
And tired.
And old.

If it's NOT taking place, here's a little tip I learned from my sister Veronica this past weekend.  Just so's you get your money's worth out of showing up here.

Ever have to get your toddler to drink medicine from one of those little cups like he's downing a shot? Doesn't work out so well, does it? Sputter, sputter and it's sticky syrupy meds all over your new shirt and the kitchen floor and his hair.

But if you stick a juice-box straw in it? He'll slurp it right up. It's like some kind of toddler magic that defies explanation.

Don't say I never gave ya' nothin'.

Oh and if we ARE on for the Tuesday Archive Link Up, I may just defy the rules a little bit and link up something newer.
As in not an archive.
Because I kind of can't stop crying about Friday's tragedy.
If you need to do the same, I'll understand, and you will not be banned from future TALUs.



It's time for TALU Tuesday.

That's right, the Tuesday Archive Link-Up.

Time to pull your treasured old posts out of those cobwebby archives, dust them off, and give them new life where they will be seen and enjoyed by untold millions OK, thousands of viewers.

See, this link-up is hosted by several people, who, all together have thousands upon thousands of followers. So when you link your post up with this party? Your post will show up on all their blogs, to all of their followers.

All you've got to do is:

1) link up your post using the linky tool below.

2) visit the hosts and leave a comment to say hi.

3) and try to visit three or more of the blogs linked up and leave a comment. They'll all be doing the same, so it's like a giant hippie love fest. Bring your own flowers.

Oh and when you comment? Put in the secret code "TALU" (Tuesday Archive Link-Up) and then give a little wink so we'll all know what you're talking about.

Have fun!

Now here are your TALU hosts, wonderful gals every one....

  1. lol - so sorry Anne! I was a deadbeat blogger last night.

  2. Good morning Anne! This week I'm sharing my recipe for mashed potatoes from scratch , the way Grandma made'em. Also I'm doing another giveaway for Christmas! Win a vintage cast iron skillet!

  3. Anne, I expect most of us are in that grieving place. It drew me this morning to the first post I ever wrote, back in 2009. It's about childhood memory, but it's also about connectedness among generations and about how very, very special our children and grandchildren are.

    Thanks for giving us TALU today. It's important that we "hang together."

  4. Hi Anne, It's such a shock, isn't it? I completely understand how this tragedy took the wind out of your sails. I'm so sorry for your sister and especially for her friend. I feel such compassion for everyone. Hopefully you got a good night's sleep; sleep helps everything. :)

  5. Thanks for stopping by and linking up, folks. Loved reading all the great posts. The commentsas well.
