Guest Editor's Pick!

"Better late that never!" My mother used to say. I should have posted this entry Friday, but I did not have the time or energy. Now, for the good news:

This humble journal has been selected in this week’s guest editor’s "Picks Of The Week" section on the AOL Journals main page. Most of you are already familiar with Mrs. Linklater’s Guide To The Universe journal. This week Mrs. L has been selected to be a guest editor for AOL and man the Editor’s Pick desk.

The Mrs. has been asked to pick six journals to recommend to all of AOL as journals that should be checked out for content, style of writing, etc. They only have space on the journals main page to list six journals at a time. This fact did not faze the undauntable Mrs. L for even one moment. Mrs. L submitted sixteen journals for your consideration. These sixteen picks provide a wide spectrum of journaling experiences and I was very impressed with the ease that Mrs. L handled this task. Even though only six may be listed at any time on the Editor’s Picks section on journals main page, you may view all sixteen choices in the entry Mrs. L posted to her journal.

First of all I would like to say thank you to Mrs. L for including my journal in this august list of journals. I must say, Mrs. L has always struck me with impeccable taste, and she has not disappointed with this selection. Okay, enough self-aggrandizing! My hat fits too tightly already. From my newly humbled self I say thank you for this recognition.

Mrs. L~well, she is one of a kind here.  Of course she would pick your journal!  It's a nice place to come and relax, and read about water ;)  One of my favorite places in J~Land....

Well Sam, Congratulations!!!! Your journal is a great find and you write so well.

I don't know Mrs. L? My bad? I don't know anything about the journal picks or anything, I just write because I love to babble on about nothing or sometimes, something. It's better to complain in J-land than to my husband all the time. Poor guy, he has to put up with one feisty chick sometimes.

You deserve the honor and I will have to get to know this Mrs. L.

What a great choice!  You lover of boats and water and little children, and J-landers . . . and . . .  you lover of life!

You write as if you are speaking directly to me . . .  and your wonderful vocabulary paints the picture just the way you want me to see it.  You make me smile, tear up . . .  you give me wonderful glimpses into your life.

My hat's off to you!
