Well, it is Saturday now.
Yesterday's blog, (which is now today's blog)
I couldn't complete becasue Yahoo was soooooooooooooooo slow.
Unfortunately it looks like it is today also.
WHAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaahhhh!



Okay, I was supposed to have a great picture of Lucille Ball
doing her famous "Whaaaaa" crying face.
Could not find one.
Welll, I found one that was a grainy pic taken from a TV screen.
Wow.
Who knew it would be impossible to find?

So, today the blog is being rather slow, but in spurts!
So, I will continue as long as I can.
ON TO MERMAIDS!!!!

I am sorry, I have a bunch of this type of mermaid clip art,
but I have no idea where I found it, or who I can give credit to.
Sorry. If you know, please drop me a line. Leaving a comment at the end of this blog is the easiest way for me. Thanks!

Are we having a fun Mermaid Day yet??!!

Actually, the yahoo site is getting slower
and slower
and slower
so I may have to cut this short.
I know, grrrr.....
but then I repeat myself....

So, mostly just pictures and clip art and coloring pages for today!
But hey, that's kinda' terrific.

That's about as much of this I can stand
I am so disappointed. I really enjoy putting together blogs,
finding the right pictures,
exploring history and sharing poetry.
When it is so slow like this, it takes the joy out of me.
I do hope Yahoo fixes this problem soon.

Let's keep optimistic!
