No Cooter Jokes. I Promise.

I was going to post this today...



because I'm feeling snarky and the 1-2 combo of Lost(Holy Volkswagon on fire, Batman!) and Life on Mars trapped in the 70's is really doing a number on my nostalgia gene. Then I received this super-sweet celebratory card from Pam complete with The General Lee and I had to post it:


from Pam's blog Wednesday:
Then, when the nominations were announced and I frantically checked my category, I didn’t see my name there, but I did see somebody familiar—my separated-at-birth friend L.A. Mitchell. Somehow seeing that she had been nominated eased my pain of not. And she’d also better watch out in D.C. because I’m bringing a freaking bullhorn to the ceremony and when she wins, the only thing the crowd is going to hear is me yelling and my bullhorn playing “Dixie”, just like the horn on the General Lee.

The General Lee is now the perfect symbol of our writing journey. It's road-weary and the doors don't always open, but it takes flight on rare and special turns and it'll get us there. Thank you, my friend!

Vesper has bestowed a sisterhood blog award on me and a meme of twenty five authors who've influenced my writing (thank you!!). Though I feel very Daisy Duke to her Elizabeth Barrett Browning in the blogosphere, I shall give it a go on Monday. Until then...

Favorite Dukes of Hazzard memory...go

Sorry no Dukes of Hazzard memories. I was out streeting my '67 Charger (383 4 bbl on a stock manifold that ate hemi's for dinner)on Telegraph. Just like everything else it was all a matter of timing.

Makes me wanna go racing. But I'd rather do it on a bike. No substitution for horsepower and a light machine

Oh, what an awesome card! Gotta love the General Lee...and that Pam is pretty fabulous, too :).

Favorite memory would have to be the run-to-the-General-Lee, butt-slide-across-the-top, car-chase-through-the-country-ending-in-a-spectacular-jump finale to every show.

And don't forget, just like the General Lee, we've got some thundering horsepower under the hood!

Yee Haw!

Woohoo, L.A.!!! Can't wait 'til they call your name in DC!! : )

Congratulations again! :-) That card looks fabulous!

Looking forward to reading your list.
