Introducing….. The FREE Daily Photo Plan

Blogging, Photography | Posted by Jannie on 5 August 2012 @ 10:15 AM 39 Comments

Edit on Saturday June 21st, 2014….. I no longer do the Free Daily Photo. :)


Hey, guys — you know how you all are so AWESOME and such?

And how with my family’s recent financial “downsizing,” I’m actually WORKING for $$$ instead of drinking wine up in my tree all day? :)

And my available blog posting and hopping time is slimmer than of yore?

Well… how ’bout a FREE Daily Photo as a gift to you! It’s the least I can do, since I take pix daily anyway!


I’ll still be posting here, but ‘tween times you can access some daily Funsterment via that “subtle” yellow button up over My Big Eye at top of this site.

Hopefully that page will eventually be a blog-within-a-blog where you can leave comments. We’ll see how it goes!

And if I ever miss a day, please don’t worry — I might just be up in that tree!!!


And how ’bout these photos I took yesterday with my iPhone!

(That table shot will make more sense when you click the FREE Daily Photo Link.)

(Kelly’s the hand-stand girl wearing pink in the poolside photo.)

And see the fire hydrant below? Was is near the flower patch above?? Nope! :)


With LOVE, from Jannie-Bo-Bannie of the eBaying hills.

A Right Texas-Friendly Blog, Some Say

Blogging, Friends | Posted by Jannie on 3 April 2010 @ 2:32 PM 38 Comments

Right_Friendly_So_They_Say(photo: summer, 2007)

All y’all are so darned tootin’ sweet!!

A few weeks back when I asked why y’all might recommend newcomers to subscribe to my blog, y’all came through with more beautifully touching words than I could’ve ever imagined in a whole lifetime of chasing hogs, ropin’ wild turkeys and jumpin’ nekkid into the cement-pond at night. 


I’ve incorporated y’all’s ideas I feel best reflect this blog into my new 18 Reasons To Love This Blog page, linked up for all perpetuity. And such.

Now, I know toutin’ my own blog could seem I have Texas-sized ego. But friends… like Mama done told me in the carrot patch when I was seven — “Jannie Junebug, you give the world your very best, and you’ll always be on your own sunshiney path to glory.” And Mama knows some stuff! Lots of stuff!!  Like how to blanch string beans, spot rhubarb at 200 paces, and field-dress a moose in a blizzard make her own cheddar.

So, thank all y’all, again. I love all y’all so much!


Thanks also for bearin’ with my blog construction dust as I further whip my design into shape.  I’ve gone as far as I can on my own, makin’ and puttin’ in my new nav buttons. Next I have to git with my Wordpress Consultant Guru to pull my search button down yonder, and get rid of the top nav bar altogether.  Wish me luck, sweet Peeps — a design vision came to me in the night, and I daren’t rest until I lay that sucker to bed.

HAPPY EASTER, y’all – it seems we reached our goal of 500 blogs participating in the Hershey’s baskets!! Woo-hoo!!!

And lastly — a question… have you ever been to Texas?  If so, what did you like about it?  And if you’ve not yet been… what in tarnation is keepin’ ya, and what would you like to see and do in Texas?

xoxoxoxoxo, and such.
