Catching up

Posted: Friday, September 04, 2009 by Travis Cody in

Well, I answered comments on my posts from last week. And I cleared out my email inbox.

Now getting to those 360 posts in my reader...that could take some time.

It's a good thing it's a holiday weekend!

Speaking of which, if you could find it in your hearts and bank accounts to drop a pledge to the Muscular Distrophy Association sometime this weekend, I'd really appreciate it. This is a cause that is close to my soul.

This is the 44th annual telethon, and Jerry Lewis is looking for $1 more than last year's total of $65,031,393. Jerry has only failed to raise his $1 more 3 times. To date, MDA has raised more than $2 billion for research and patient care.

Best wishes to my friends Vinny and Nancy, who tie their love and lives together this weekend.

I follow my heart
Over the threshold and home
Straight into your arms

I feel it within
I know where it is, with you
Anywhere is home

    I have this Taylor Hicks album and I just love it. There are several great tunes here.

  1. Congrats to Vinny and Nancy. I hope this brings you two infinite years of happiness together!

    Hugs, Travis. Have a wonderful weekend. Don't worry about my posts, just the same old nonsense....

    I think I like my method of handling hundreds of posts stored up during an absence... I employ the use of the delete button - or more accurately, "Mark All As Read"! :-D

    Don't stress about catching up Trav. :)

    Congratulations to your friends

    Vinny & Nancy

  1. I wilt when I see over 50 posts in my google reader.

  1. Linda says:

    Good luck tackling those posts, when there gets to be that many I tend to hit the "mark all as read" and then go with whatever the post on top was - otherwise I'd be reading forever!

    Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see if I can find a dollar or two for Jerry's kids. They deserve it!

  1. I so wish I could be in Memphis =(

    Driller: I luvs me some Taylor Hicks music!

    Lois: Not nonsense at all!

    Barb: I try not to do that, but it's an option.

    Akelamalu: No stress!

    Charles: It can be intimidating.

    Linda: I try to go back at least a few days.

    NNG: You too!

    Starr: It's gonna be a good party I suspect.

    Jamie: And they have Aisles of Smiles!

  1. Yay! You're back!

    What a beautiful portrait of the newlyweds.

  1. Julie says:

    Mornin' sweetie! Can't wait for V and N pictures!

    Your passion for the MDA is admirable.

    Thank you so much for the song. It is one that says so much.

    We so appreciate the thoughts.
