Checkin' It Out and Posts of the Week

Skittles is curious and hungry for something new. That something is a piece of barbecued chicken on the end of Alex's fork. If you have an appetite for some great blog posts, be sure to check out the Posts of the Week below.



The icon to the left here is yours for the taking if your blog post has been named as a Post of the Week - either as top post or as a runner up, today or in past weeks. I've decided to start mixing up the colours each week. Take whichever one appeals to you. You'll find others in past posts.

This week's top post goes to:

I love the gentleness shown by Alex in that picture. And what a Skitty!

Many thanks as always.♥

Thank you Hilary for the POTW award once again. I have not been around much, so did not realize...

Love your pic. Your son is a real heart-breaker. They do grow up fast, don't they?

Terrific picks Hilary-- I've only been to three, but you managed to make me laugh and cry in just a few minutes.

CherylK said...

I can't say I blame Skittles on little bit for trying to get that bit of chicken! You did capture this shot at the perfect time!

I'm going to check out the posts in the morning. They're always so good. But I'm on some meds that make me sleepy so will head for bed!
