I'm hyperventilating! Thank you Hilary.

And yes, definately an ahhh moment with the otters.

Tabor said...

Thanks for the recognition and I do not know how you do this. It is time consuming to read so many blogs!

Friko said...

Ellen Abbot visited my blog for the first time and congratulated me on "making POTW". It took me a while to find out what that means, but being fairly bright when I put my mind to it, find out I did.

Thank you Hilary, that was very kind of you. As you know, I follow you and read your posts whenever I can and shall now continue to do so, mainly to lure you over to mine, of course.
