VGNO "Heart-Shaped Rock Project"

The little "gem" has left Yaya's and has landed at Kat's place, that Sassy Irish Lassie. She is going through the pain of computer problems and will post her picture soon. After Kat's place the heart-shaped rock will travel to Carolee, who is Working In My Jammies And Lovin' It.

Our VGNO "Heart-Shaped Rock Project" visitor list is growing every day. Would you like to participate? Just e-mail me your mailing address at annharrisonATcomcastDOTcom and I will add you to the list. When you receive the "gem" you'll need to take a picture of yourself, or someone (or place) special, with the rock in the picture and post it on your blog. It's traveling America! Take part, why don't 'cha?!

Now, dear VGNO friends, I believe I'll go have a cocktail and remember those sweet days when my girls were tiny and the biggest issue was 'Did I bring enough diapers for this long car ride?' Ah, the good times.

Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
