On The Road Again

Remember that I ran out of time seeing all the DuPont properties when I was in Wilmington? Well, this weekend I am making up for that.....Keep an eye on Twitter and go back with me......

We do a lot of traveling with our sister/brother-in-law, but this is our first time without the "kids."  If you pass us on I-95, you might see something like this!  (We don't call ourselves the "Tag-Along Mertzes" for nothing!)
Delaware....Here we come!!



Cheers!

Madras Monday: Shopping With My Preppy Peeps

Ok....a little blast from the past.  Circa 2001.....a friends reunion in Atlanta, Georgia. All my theatrical friends were back in town, some all the way from LA.  And, of course, shopping was our aerobics for the weekend.  Looking at the number of bags I am holding, it must have been a very good afternoon!

Two of my friends featured in this picture, Jon and Matthew, were nicknamed "Biff" and "Chip" when The Preppy Handbook came out.  I was "Bootsy."  (I think our friend Patty, also pictured, might have had the nickname "Muffy.")  What fun we had all those years ago....Not all of us are pictured here, either.  We all met in 1983 and until the day I die, they will hold a very special place in my heart!

Love you all!

Weekend Fun

Sorry for the delay in blogging....my two out-of-town trips last week were fun, but the bronchitis that came when I got home wasn't!  Feeling much better now and preparing to write....but.....in the meantime.....one of my favorite (can't really say it's preppy) videos! Enjoy.....

Wonderful Wednesday: Time To Read

One of the "benefits" of having bronchitis and taking to one's bed, is the chance to do some reading. The book I am finishing now has been simply wonderful.

Outcasts United is a spectacular story of inspiration, hard work and great success.  I highly recommend it!

Madras Monday: A New Friend

Sorry for the long absence, but it was a busy week. I was in charge of a conference for the Order of St. Luke (www.oslrichmond.org) and had the honor and pleasure of spending two days with our guest speaker, the incredible Rosemary Trible. (www.feartofreedomjourney.com).  If Rosemary comes to your town, don't miss her talk.  It is absolutely amazing.

For more on Rosemary, visit her site above or watch this video of one of her talks.
