Timing In Texas Is Everything...2009...TimeToGo!

Welcome to CollectInTexas Gals 45th Post!
You know, In this world of Blogging, Timing Is Everything!

When I started CIT back in August,
I planned for the Last Post of 2009 to be Number Forty-five!
I planned on having a different header for nearly every post!
I planned on having Roy Rogers and Dale Evans singing 'Happy Trails' in Buffalo Gap,Texas.
I planned on having a Dozen Pink Saturday Posts with the 'Chicken Dance' by Lawrence Welk as background music...
he's probably cluckin in heaven.
I planned on spending untold hours trying to figure out how to use 'Spell Check' in the 'Edit Html'.
I planned on Blah BlahBlaahhh....ect.ect.ect...and so on.

Now if you believe that I'm that good of a 'Planner', My Fellow Texan and Gooood Buddy, George Strait and I have some 'Ocean Front Property' in Arizona we'd like to sell ya!
Okay...George and I aren't Goooood Buds, but I have been to ONE of his Concerts back in the 80's.
After that concert in Odessa, Texas, they started raising a net in front of the stage to catch all the
Black Bras flying through the air.
Dang! that was my only one, too!

Anyway...Back to this GRIT Planning! I don't...plan...I adhere to that old Texas Saying..."If ya don't have a clue...Grab the Seat of Yore Britches". In other words, I 'Fly by the Seat of my Pants' ALOT!
So you can imagine my Surprise at this....

...and Jeanne makes 61! Can't leave out CIT's Backyard Neighbor!

Just look at all YA'LL.
My Gooooodness, ya'll are an Amazin Group of Bloggers!
I Love,Love,Love seeing your Smiles on CollectInTexas Gal!

My Bloggin Buds and Friends!

I will never forget my First Pink Saturday, the Warm Welcome and the shared 'Sewing Stories' like this one from 'Everyones Favorite Pinkie' Sherry from Country Wings in Phoenix.

So, now we come to the end of 2009 and the end of CollectInTexas Gals 45th Post.
And in the words of that famous crooner, Frank Sinatra...
"I Did It Beverly's Way"...That'd be with 'A Pink Attitude'!

Here's the Button that adorns the SideBar of more Blogs than a Texas Cactus has Stickers. I can't even begin to say how much 'Pink Saturday' has meant to this Girl Raised In Texas. Thank-you Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for everything!
