Happy Day, Mom...

Yes, even though I did not travel out to B.F.E. today, I did call my mom to wish her Happy Mother's Day.

Never in a million years did I expect the info I got from her.

My Mom is blogging!

How weird is that??

She's a librarian and the Regional Library was participating in the 20 Things Project. As best as I can tell, it was a project to get the staff involved in blogging and learning more about the avenues of research on the world wide web. She did well enough to win an mp3 player.... (mom asks, "What is an mp3 player?"). Wow, I just can't get over it.

I told her I hoped she continued with her blog.

Sooooo, I felt like I should post SOMETHING today.

Here's a pic I took this morning to show all my irovr friends how cold and dreary it is in central Virginia today:
