A Bloggy Friend Has Lost Her Home

My good bloggy friend, PLO, who writes over on ForCryEye just lost her home to a fire. Luckily, her whole family including their dog managed to make it out safely. But they lost everything and their home was destroyed. This is pretty much one of my worst nightmares and I can only imagine what PLO is going through right now.

When I first started this blog, PLO asked me for my address because she had something she wanted to send me....a few days later, I received probably the most fun piece of mail ever. PLO sent me some of her Pee Wee Herman trading cards she's had since she was a kid. And because she's an awesome artist and sweet person, she even drew Pee Wee on the envelope and wrote "Pee Wee Gram" on it. How cool is that? I have it hanging on my refrigerator and it makes me smile every single morning before I leave for work.

I am just sick that she and her family are hurting right now. Please stop by her blog and leave her a nice comment.

And while you are at it, stop over at the blog her sweet neighbors have started for them. Donate if you can...and if you can't, that's cool. Just send up a prayer or positive thought for her family...I know she would appreciate it.

Hang in there PLO!!

I couldn't believe my eyes this morning when I saw your post. I'll do what I can for Paula and her family. I met her last year and she's been a dear friend from the start.

Hugs!!

I did a post for her too, I hope you don't mind. I have some readers up in her area and I was hoping to reach them with my post.

Thanks and hugs,
