|Just some of our young, hip readers.|
Some of our posts fell a bit flat. Eydie is still licking her wounds over her "Prairie Grl Tosses Fiddle Aside in Favor of Allen Stone" (June 28th). Perhaps if she had entitled it "Allen Stone Wears a 36D" she (or Allen ) would have gotten a few more hits. I suggested a couple of captions for that piece, as in "Obviously Allen wasn't getting much in high school," but Eydie thought that might offend our more delicate readers. I tend to ride the edge of PC, so my dear friend needs to reign me in a bit.

One of the items I always like to check our on our stats page is this little world map that shows where are readers are from. Of course the majority are from the United States, but our second highest country of readership is Russia! That amazes us, and keeps us wondering who in that vast country takes the time to check out our posts. Canada comes in third, and we have a handle on who a few of those might be. We get regular hits from Denmark (I have always said that I am a Dane at heart.), Germany, Guatemala, England, Spain, France, Ukraine, and just this week New Zealand and China. One week a number of people in Romania were following us. I guess they gave up. They are probably still shaking their heads over the Michael Landon photos.
I know of several people who refuse to read the blog--my daughters. They are so used to me doing really embarrassing things that they would just as soon not encourage me by paying attention to any of this. I did threaten to post recovery photos of my youngest who just had her wisdom teeth removed. She told me that it didn't worry her because she didn't think anyone important (her friends) would ever see them. Ouch! Well, let's just see if that is true. Friends of Maia, be sure to let her know if you see this:

a bit more encouragement in this writing venture."
Prairie Eydie has set up a Facebook page for us. We are extremely needy individuals, so please type in "Prairie Grlz" in your Facebook search box and like us, or click here for a quick peek.
It is Monday, and I haven't forgotten. One of our readers, Martha, sent me this photo of our dear Michael. Does this even need a caption? I don't mean to be shallow, but just compare him with Allen Stone.
