Paula, an endless source of inspiration (and amusement), gave me an idea this morning as she shamelessly begged to be featured (again!) on SLTW.

Her pleading (and attempted bribery) got me thinking . . .

Why not add a page with links to articles on blogs and bloggers featured on SLTW?  (Paula included.) 

Here it is . . .  Ta Da!  

It’s still a work in progress (aren’t we all?) ~ I’ll continue to round up feature articles to include with links to the blogs and bloggers in question.

Thanks, Paula! 

No rules.  Just write!  

BTW: If you know of any Canadian Bloggers who have not visited Reflections from a Cloudy Mirror yet . . . send them round.  Paula is anxiously awaiting visitors from each of Canada’s Provinces.

Meet Tilly . . . The Laughing Housewife July 24, 2011

Tilly Bud, also known as The Laughing Housewife, cannot cook.

I am dead serious:

* Her husband uses a smoke detector as an oven timer.

* House guests refuse to let her cook.

* Her pancakes resemble scabby knees.

Word to the Wise:  If she invites you to dinner, eat before you go unless you like burnt sausages, beans on toast, or Maltesers.

On second thought, forget the last.

Tilly doesn’t share Maltesers . . .

Not even if you’re friends with Matt LeBlanc (a/k/a Joey Tribianni).
Not even if it’s your Birthday.
Not even if you’re her BFF or her BBB (Best Blogging Bud).

And that’s . . . O.K.

What Tilly does share (in generous doses) is laughter:

* Laugh out loud laughter. 
* Snort beverages out your nose laughter.
* Pee in your pants laughter.
* Spray coffee over your keyboard laughter.
* Laugh until you cry laughter.
* Fall into the coffee table laughter.
* So true it hurts laughter.

So . . . I have just one question for you:  Have you laughed today?

We do not laugh because we are happy.  We are happy because we laugh. ~ William James

Wine improves with age
Age improves with wine
Life improves with laughter

Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face. ~ Victor Hugo

Laugh and the world laughs with you.  Cry and people call you a cry baby behind your back.

No rules.  Just write!

Tilly Bud WON the 100,000 Visitor Prize (as Visitor # 99,999).
