My lovely (but lonely) sister.

My sister Marian is two years and three months younger than I am. We live 800 miles and four states apart, but we are very close. I talk to her almost every day, sometimes more than once a day.

Marian has been a big supporter of my blog, encouraging me and giving me input. A week or two ago I added a "Followers" label on my sidebar. After several days when I still had NO followers, I called her and said, "Marian, I don't think anyone wants to be the first follower on my blog. I need you to sign up." So, good younger sister that she is, Marian dutifully uploaded a picture of herself and joined up as my inaugural blog follower. A week later, however, she sits over there lonely as can be. She never complains, mind you, because she's truly the nicest person I know other than my husband (they are very alike in temperament - I think being kind and patient is a major prerequisite for being able to live with me). But I'm sure she would like some company.

I absolutely love the picture of the two of you in the Christmas tree dresses--how precious! And of course I love the Bid Day pic because I am a Chi O too! And I also have you on my goggle reader!

I'm a wordpress user, so although I *want* to be a follower, I don't think I can. Not in this way. But I follow very closely, anyway!

I do love visiting here, really I do! I just don't use Blogger's followers feature. I love that photo from Bid Day! It is awesome!

Marian the librarian looks awesome! Those "X and a horseshoe" days were great weren't they? Was Bid Day really that far away??

How could I resist. You two look just like I did in the 60's...

How lucky you are to have each other as sisters.

There is no friend in the world quite like a sister. They are there for you, no matter what.

I need to figure out how to sign up as a follower, then I will place you under blogs that I follow. I truly adore your blog.
