Howdy, cowgirls!

We're havin' a rip roarin' good time here at the Wild West Corral...tomorrow is the last day to sign up for the Wild West Tag Swap! If you want "in", this is "last call!"

This month's You Inspire Me Award goes to the illustrious Cindy Brewer of Rick Rack n Gingham. Cindy's compassion and always-ready words of encouragement to us in blogdom inspires me to no end! Even when her own life is anything but calm, she always has time to create, encourage, and offer a prayer for anyone in need.

This one's for you girlfriend! May your blog "wear it" in good health!

Kickin up my heels,
Paula Clare
