Rednesday in Boston. Prayers for the injured and their families, and all those traumatized by the explosions at the Boston Marathon on Monday. I live ten minutes from the starting line, and I'm glad I didn't go into Boston for the finish! (45 minutes away) One of my cousins was at the finish line, but left before the explosions.
An ex-New England Patriot player (football), Joe Andruzzi, was there and helped with the injured. He was at the marathon to support a team that was running to raise money for his cancer charity.
Will Middlebrooks, of the Boston Red Sox (baseball) tweeted:
Yup! We've got Matt Damon, Ben and Casey Affleck, Mark Wahlburg, Chris Evans, Edward Norton, James Spader, Leonard Nimoy, Conan O'Brien, Kurt Russell, John Cena, Michael Chiklis, Misha Collins, and Denis Leary, to name some of the heavies born in our Bay State! Along with our superstar sports teams, they can ward off any more offenders!
I'm a woman of constant sorrow I've seen trouble all my day. I bid farewell to old Rednesday The place where I was born and raised.
No, I'm not full of sorrow or trouble! I had an unusually busy week and completely forgot about Rednesday! Isn't that terrible! My humble apologies!
I do have an announcement to make, though.
After giving it considerable thought, I have decided to pass the baton and retire from hosting Rednesdays. I've been doing this for four years now and have enjoyed every minute. But, time for me to give it a rest and just do "regular" blogging.
Now, what will happen to Rednesdays? Well, that's up to you. If any of you would like to become the new host, just let me know and I'll gladly hand over the reigns (and my Linky password). If no one steps up, then Rednesdays will just be a part of history, and a happy one, at that! I will finish out April myself, unless someone steps up early. Then I will announce it here, so everyone can transfer over.
I'm having driver problems with my computer and I can't retrieve anything from my flash drives, where ALL my pics are stored!
I wanted to show you the gifts I received from my two Easter swaps but, nooooo, the computer won't let me! Anne from Finland, and Shirley of Zetta's Aprons sent me the most wonderful, best ever, stuff! I'll post the pics as soon as I can.
So today I've just taken some vintage Easter card images from Google to share with you. Enjoy!
