Isn't that an awesome surprise? Thank you everyone over at AOL's Lemondrop for featuring my blog in their Awesome-Grandmas-who-Blog. I am very honored for being featured, and two other blogging friends are featured as well: Mary and Winifred. Congratulations friends! And I know of a whole bunch of other awesome grandma's who blog, right here on blogger!

We've had a wonderful time together this week. To prove it, here is a picture. Hope you enjoy it.

First of all "Congratulations" on your honor. Secondly, what a neat picture of you and McKenzie.

I think you are an "awesome grandma who blogs" too.

Hello Miss Renie,
Thank you so much for stopping by. As to your green tomatoes, I am told that if you put them in baskets or boxes and layer them with newspapers between they will ripen. I guess you do not want to make too many layers, maybe 3 or 4. One lady told me she had tomatoes ripening up until almost Christmas last year. I am hoping this information is correct as I picket two 5 gallon pails of green tomatoes which are now in the basement along with 2 bushel baskets of apples.

Welcome back! What a fun thing to come back to! WHo was driving the 4x4? Should I ask?

CBingham said...

Wow, congrats on being featured, but I am most impressed at seeing you ride that 4-wheeler. I keep telling my wife Joann to get outside with me and to live life and she simply sighs and says that she can't hear the tv. Seeing you on that 4-wheeler makes me want to drag that wife of mine out of her chair and prop her up on one of those and make her drive. The fastest I've seen her go in a while is when she runs to the stove to stop a pot from boiling over.

Congratulations Renie!!!
It's a very pleasant surprise from them.

You and your granddaughter look very happy on the vehicle =)

Mary said...


Yes, it was nice that they featured all of us blogging grannies. LOL I was also surprised. It's always nice to know people appreciate us.

I'm glad you and your granddaughter were having fun. Enjoy their visit.
