PICK YOUR FAVORITE- 4TH OF JULY TABLE

WELL!
Are we finally back in the 
BUSINESS OF BLOGGING?
Are we getting comments again?
Are we happy campers?
Yes?  Good!  Let's move on!

You KNOW the rules, right!?!
Pick one table where you would like to
PLUNK DOWN.

I'll be serving this time so I 
can say Hi to everyone.
Let's see how it goes and 
WHO your tablemates will be...
NO FAIR picking
the table where RON is 
whipping up cocktails
just because there are drinks there!

Ready? Here we go-

#1- Blue Hydrangea Salute



#2-A Bite By The Bay

#3-Stick Around For The 4th

#4-Something's Fishy Here

#5-A Little Bit Of Gold


#6-Patriots By The Pool

and
#7-Shovel It In-It's The 4th
So---there you have it.
Pick a table -any table-
ONE TABLE
and close your eyes.
When you open them you will 
find out who has joined the party.
Please RSVP by the end of the week
so I can wrap this party up!

Here's what I will be wearing when
I come to your table to serve-
I ordered an extra large--
I sure hope it fits when it gets here----
HAVE A HAPPY DAY!
I'll be off saluting all the 
OLD BOYS AT THE VA 
this morning!

TESTING THE 'FIX' BLOGGER SAYS IS FIXED

SO-
Let's see if this is 
TRUE!!!!

Copying and pasting this.
Two people have sent me
this fix.
Debby Ray & Lisa D!

Here it is and let's hope it works!

If so-we are back in business!!!!

How to get comments made on your blog go to your email again.

Go into your design wall and on left hand side go into your settings and then click on email and then where you have your email address in the comment notification box,delete it and then save and then re enter your email address and save again.

Then you will get an email from blogger with a invitation to receive comment notification and then click on SUBSCRIBE and then your emails will start coming through to your email address. 


SO LEAVE ME A COMMENT 
AND LET'S SEE IF THIS WORKS~!
amen

ps- Make SURE you hit SAVE when you delete your old email address and then re-enter the address and save it again.  Fingers crossed it works!
I hope---I hope---I hope!

UPDATED TO ADD:
You will get an "invitation" in your email to 
subscribe to the comments.
As soon as you hit accept you are 
IN LIKE FLYNN!

This is from Lisa D:
Go to your blogger dashboard (where you have all the settings and stuff).
On the left click on Emails.
Delete your email and save.
Then put your email back in and hit save again.

You will get an email asking you to “subscribe” to getting emails. 

(Do this for any reader emails you might have listed too so they will get the notification “subscribe too” email)

They have just made it a privacy thing so people will not get emails they do not want. Which I guess is a good thing)!!


I missed doing the subscription thing on my first try!

TAKING A BREAK UNTIL BLOGGER GETS A FEW THINGS FIXED

In the beginning-
I used to love to blog.
I looked forward to writing a post.
I looked forward to getting comments.
I looked forward to replying to
EVERY COMMENT
if there was an email addy connected.

I rolled with the punches
when blogger changed things up
on us over the years.
I hung in there and learned the new ropes.

I made many friends and know 
so many of you on a personal level
but
I have to say
THIS IS CRAZY!!!~

I don't know what the forces behind
the blog platform are thinking....
or ARE they thinking?

Anyway,
I know time is precious for all of us...
and, that being said,
I am working full-time.
I still have grandkids to haul around,
soccer and volleyball games to watch,
a new home to find,
and way too many other things going on
 to even mention.

I don't have time right now
to gnash my teeth over these
new "restrictions".

To me there is not much sense
in answering your comments
on the blog itself.
I don't know about you but 
I NEVER 
go back to see if someone
has responded to my comment.
I NEVER re-visit a blog 
(unless there is new content)
to see if someone replied to the
comment I left.

So-I am taking a break.
IF they can get some of 
THE ISSUES 
resolved-I will be back with
bells on! 
(well, and clothes,too, cuz the 
alternative just ain't purty)!
Love you guys!
You KNOW I do!!!!

FOR THOSE THAT ARE LOOKING TO FIX THEIR EMAIL/BLOGGER PROBLEM

I can't take credit for this
but I can sure 
spread the word.
Let's hope it works for some of us anyway!

Fix to Blogger Comment Issue

Housekeeping post today.
So, Blogger is having a bit of a hiccup at the moment. For some reason, comment notifications are not being sent to my email. Since this is the easiest way to reply to comments, it is a problem.
After some research, I found out three things: 1) This is a widespread problem 2) After no response on the Blogger Product Forum all day, one of the experts finally replied that Blogger is working on it 3) In the meantime, there is a fix that is working for me. At the bottom of your post's comment section, check the box that says notify me. This basically subscribes you to all comments on that post and they will show up in your email inbox. You will need to do this on every new post.
Hope this helps! And share this too :-)

LOVING MY LILACS & HONORING GRAND GRADUATES

I apologize for being so sporadic
in posting lately.
Working everyday puts me 
a little bit behind.

I wish it would GIVE me a 
little behind-but that's another story.

Our growing season is a 
LITTLE BEHIND
in Wisconsin this year.
My lilacs are finally in full bloom.
I don't know what kind they are
but they are highly scented.
A larger shot of the bush.
Aren't they just gorgeous?
There is another big bush next to that one.
I think it probably needs trimming
this Fall-pruned back a bit so it
produces more heavily.

Along the foundation under 
my bedroom window I have
Columbine blooming and
buds on the peonies.
I love the deep cornflower blue of the 
columbine.
I look around and talk to myself
a bit- Oh-How-Pretty!
Yep- I am pretty happy
except when I see this....
the picnic table we move from
area to area.
Right now it is under the trees...
Know what I say to myself about that?
OH! CRAP!
YUCK!!!
Hope YOU have a wonderful day...
as for me-this day is for the birds!
Next year these scenes will all belong
to my son and daughter-in-law.
It is kind of weird to think I won't be 
living here anymore....
but...such is life, right?!

I will tell you my son washed that table
and the patio set and all the seating
areas yesterday.  Good boy!!!
Kinda makes up for all the chores
he DIDN'T do as a kid....Kinda!!!!

Our Aleena had a
BIG GRADUATION PARTY
here yesterday.
She graduated from high school.
Isn't she a beauty?
I might be a tad biased....

I hope to get around to visit everyone
in the next couple of days.

Our Ria graduated from 
eighth grade and is off and running
towards high school....
where HAS the time gone?

I am so annoyed that 
BLOGGER has once again
changed the game...
Your comments no longer come through
to my email-which makes it much more
difficult to reply.

Just know that I do read and treasure
every one of your comments....
cuz I love you guys (or gals)..or....

Have a wonderful week!!!!!
