Isn't she Lovely!

I am a hippo freak! I love hippos…really don’t understand this love I have for them. I buy anything and everything when it comes to hippos…my house, my office, and my car are all full of hippos. THEN, to top it off…add the color PURPLE! OMG! I have just gone to Heaven. Purple is a color that touches my heart and lets my soul sing. (Again, I really don’t understand the attraction.) I know when I see a purple hippo…it’s mine!

I wanted to honor the hippos of the world and present them in Purple Majesty. Here she is in all her GRAND splendor! My BABY!

I am taking this Blogger’s boot camp. I have to tell you…I don’t understand what I am learning. OMG! I thought I was pretty competent with the essential computer skills but I STAND before you…NOT EVEN CLOSE! It’s so over my head I have to have friends come over and explain it to me! I thought I would get it right away….NOT! I was hoping to change over to type pad…but I can’t do it yet. I have been saving some post for the new blog site. Well…maybe another day!
