I grabbed a pile of dust, and holding it up, foolishly asked for as many birthdays as the grains of dust, I forgot to ask that they be years of youth. ~ Ovid

  1. I can’t believe the Frog Blog is five already! Congratulations from this grateful little pomegranate — or perhaps that should be Pamegranate? Merry Christmas to you and yours! Hope Santa brings you a Pumpkin Cake Roll to fuel your writing (or maybe one of those orange scones from Panera). Cheers!

  2. Happy Birthday Frog On A Dime! How can you be 5 years old?!! 🤔 Love your wit and wisdom. Congratulations and I hope you are blessed with many more! 💐😊❤


  3. Happy Blogiversary! I always enjoy reading your witty and insightful posts. You always have encouraging words for us even when you are the one in need of encouragement. Thank you for five fun years and may you have many more!

  4. 5 years! Congrats! What a commitment. And somehow you keep showing up week after week with a fresh face! I appreciate your thoughtful and heartfelt posts.


  5. Vicky – I agree with Buffy Silverman in that your posts always seem to arrive at just the right time. You’re my favorite ‘cheerleader’ when it comes to the writing world! Thank you for continuing to boost us up and inspire. As for topics, perhaps the advantages/disadvantages of using social media as a writer?

  6. Vicky, I feel the same as Buffy Silverman—your words always seem to come at just the right time! You continue to be one of the best ‘cheerleaders’ in my life and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to hang out in your world. Keep up the good work!
    (ps — topics? Hmmm…perhaps some guidance on using social media as a writer? How does it help? How does it hinder? What does a writer hope to gain? What does a participant hope to gain?)


  7. No suggestions on topics, Vicky, but here’s a big thank you for being your encouraging shiny self. Okay, I guess that’s a suggestion–your words of encouragement are always appreciated, and they seem to land in my inbox when I need them most. So please keep doing what you’re doing.


    • Thank you for the suggestion. I’ve never written a play for children, so that would be an interesting topic to explore. It’s fun to learn about new ways to ignite children’s imaginations (and our own). My best to you!


  8. Happy birthday, Froggie! And thanks, Vicky, for your words of encouragement. It’s always so nice to know when I need a boost in spirit I can go back and re-read your posts. You’re the bestest, Sister!
