Linda Engel: Hi everyone, I haven't been around for awhile to read, write, or review. (taking a break) I have been working on my photography and dabbling down thoughts and tid bits in my journal. I certainly haven't forgotten all of my friends and your entertaining work. I so enjoy your stories. I'll still be around to review. Take care.
May 2, 2017 at 12:07PM

Linda Engel: Merry Christmas to All. I know I haven't posted anything in months but I do still read your work and enjoy the profile thoughts. Take care. Linda I'm buying myself a recorder because it seems that my best thoughts come while I am driving and are quickly forgotten when the car parks in the driveway. LOL

    damommy: A recorder is a great idea. 8-)

Linda Engel: Going to Athens, Georgia this weekend to see the grand kids and to pick up 85 boxes of Girl Scout cookies. (What we do for the babies) No, they aren't all for me. My friends in my dentist office bought most of them.
Do you eat Girl Scout cookies and which ones are your favorite ? :)
February 9, 2016 at 9:28AM
    evilynne: My gang likes Thin Mints. Evi
    February 9, 2016 at 11:39AM

    February 9, 2016 at 12:11PM
    I am Cat: Happy Birthday Linda! Sending love and kisses and lots of love! Be careful on your trip and have fun!

Linda Engel: My goal for February is to read two to three new people every week. These are people on Fan Story that are not on my fan list. I have read recently the work of a lot of people who have been on this site for years that I have not read nor heard of. Thanks to Jax and Tab That's Me for starting the Picture This group and giving us a chance to meet and read new people. So I will read and review a few those work I am not familiar with. If you have a suggestion, let me know.
January 31, 2016 at 2:55AM
    mrsmajor:
    Hi Linda,

    This may not be what you're asking for...but I have gone to the lowest poets on the list, and began to read some of their work...many have not posted much, but it is a way that I can read those writer's and see if there is some that I can encourage, even help!

    After I try to keep up with my fans, I do take a few moments to read those writers that are not...
    January 31, 2016 at 10:49AM
    Linda Engel: Yes that is a great suggestion. There are so many on this site and it would be nice to seek out talent outside of our comfortable circles. Thank you. Cat sent me a list of four people and what I have read , I am not disappointed.
    January 31, 2016 at 11:01AM
    I am Cat: Awesome! Those are members who reviewed me, and I reviewed them back. I'm happy to pass them on as suggested reading!
    January 31, 2016 at 4:30PM
    Gypsy Blue Rose: Good goal! I found a lot of new writers since I joined "Picture This' group. Good luck!
    *gypsy*

Linda Engel: I'll be cooking my "good Luck and prosperity" dinner for New Years: Collard greens, black eye peas, cornbread, pork chops, slice tomatoes, dressing, and pumpkin pudding. wishing everyone a Happy and Blessed New Year. I am so thankful for my Fan Story friends and have enjoyed your work so much. You've made my days in 2015 very happy.
December 31, 2015 at 4:46AM
    LIJ Red: In one stretch of mountains pork chops wouldn't do...had to be hog jowl. I think I know why I'm--well, other than rich.
    December 31, 2015 at 8:31AM
    michaelcahill: Hi! Thank you for all your wonderful help this year. You pass out as many 'made days' as you get and then some I'm sure. Happy New Year. See ya for dinner. mikey
    December 31, 2015 at 9:39AM
    mrsmajor: I may be late with this Holiday Greeting, but I'll come to your house for dinner anytime...I second that menu...the only difference, was sweet potato pie...instead of the pumpkin pudding...I wish you all the best for 2016, stay Healthy, and Safe...Hugs,
    Victoria

Linda Engel: Merry Christmas All. On my way to Athens to see the Grand kids. Take care and safe travels. See you on Sunday.
December 24, 2015 at 7:24AM
    rama devi: You too! :) Have fun.
    December 24, 2015 at 9:01AM

Linda Engel: Christmas time should be a happy time. This one is a little sad for me. My best friend's mother passed away . Ms. Betty made the best sweet bread and butter pickles. I won't be spending Christmas with my hubby. I have to go to Athens and he can not travel that far. And I just found out that my best friend in Vermont is not well. So I didn't get to finish my poem this week and I am behind on reviewing because at work we are short handed and it's demanding. *sigh* I need lots of cookies.
December 23, 2015 at 7:21AM
    I am Cat: ((((((So sorry honey... Sending hugs)))))
    December 23, 2015 at 9:04AM
    TAB_that's me: Linda, I am so sorry. It is even harder to lose someone this time of year. My prayers for you.
    December 23, 2015 at 12:22PM

Linda Engel: I'm sick and ache all over. I'll be back soon.
November 30, 2015 at 8:27PM
    evilynne: Rest and get better! Evi
    November 30, 2015 at 9:22PM
    TAB_that's me: Take care dear. I know how you feel, I've had it all weekend. Get lots of rest.
    November 30, 2015 at 10:32PM
    I am Cat: (((((hugs Linda)))) feel better soon
    December 1, 2015 at 2:51AM
    mrsmajor: Sorry to hear that, take it easy, and get plenty of rest...feel better soon...we can wait!...
    Big Hugs!
    December 1, 2015 at 4:49AM

Linda Engel: had a big yard sale today My sister and I made over $600.00 and will have another next week. (I'm pooped)
October 31, 2015 at 4:33PM

Linda Engel: This weekend I'll head to the north Georgia mountains for apples, cool weather and my grand children. I'll have five hours to compose a poem for the next challenge. I think better when I'm driving the back roads . There is no straight shot from Valdosta to Athens, GA and I hate the Interstate.
I'm leaving hubby home with the cat.
October 15, 2015 at 2:09PM
    TAB_that's me: Enjoy your drive and the time with grandkids!
    October 15, 2015 at 3:25PM
    I am Cat: Ohhhh... so that's who is in the corner over there... ;)
    If you go through Donaldsonville, wave to my Aunt and Uncle. ;)
    Hugs and be safe! wait... when is the next challenge?
    October 15, 2015 at 11:17PM
    ByeByeBirdie: Yay for you! Seeing the sweetest little ones always inspires me! Have lots of fun, you deserve it! Be blessed

    DLyons: How romantic. I came from the desert, definitely not romantic. Good luck with the poem. Diana
    October 23, 2015 at 9:11PM

Linda Engel: Finally, the air is cool this morning. 56 degrees and breathable. Fall is in the air for today, at least. In south Georgia we will still have warm weather until middle of October.
Thanks to everyone who has followed our photo challenge group. The poems are awesome. Look them up.
September 14, 2015 at 8:39AM
    ciliverde: I'd like to join the photo challenge group, if I could. How does one do that? Do I need to get people to review my work?

    Joy Graham: Contact Jax Franklin and Bob's your uncle. You're in the group just like that :)

Linda Engel: I am so far behind in reviewing. My husband, Fred, had back surgery on Thursday and is having a rough time with pain and discomfort. Today he was able to get up and shower and wash his hair. I big accomplishment. He is sleeping now and my eyes are about closed as well. It's like having a 230 lb baby but I love him. Exhausted and need more time...Linda
September 7, 2015 at 4:36PM
    Annette Gulliver: It is exhausting looking after a loved one after such invasive surgery, but we do it with love, gladly putting aside our own daily routines. I hope he recovers soon, and that we see you again on FS. You take care and rest as well.
    Annette
    PS- and thank you for your kind thoughts re my black eye.
    September 7, 2015 at 5:30PM

    October 6, 2015 at 8:56PM
    Ginnygray: Linda, my husband just had his fifth back surgery last April with three spinal fusions, so my heart goes out to you both! In time, which is what it takes a lot of, hopefully, he will be feeling his normal self again!
