Tour de France 2009 - Lance on the podium!

Alberto Contador won the 96th Tour de France - congrats! But my heart will always be with Lance who placed third, returning to the sport after a 3 1/2 year retirement after winning his 7th Tour de France. Lance is the second oldest rider to stand on the podium (he's 37 - the oldest was 40 and that was back in the 1970s.)

In 2010 Lance will return and ride for a new USA team - Radio Shack! Here I'll sit - waiting in anticipation. Keep up the good work, Lance!

Tattoos by Nikki Evans (North Wales)

Do you, dear reader, like fairy tales and dolly collecting? Combine them and if you are Nikki and so very very talented you can take a Robert Tonner 18 inch Kitty Collier and tell the stories of -


Jack and the Beanstock/the princess and the pea

or Cinderella

by "inking" your doll. Amazing work, Nikki! Eat your heart out David Beckham. Wink.

Bracelets - bangle - and only silver (NDR)

Not Doll Related BUT if I could find proper mini bangles for them - they'd be adorned in silver. Haven't worn ALL of my bangles in a while - and decided to deck out the old wrist today.

Silver is my kind of bracelet. My first three were a gift for Christmas from my Aunt Betty. Believe she got them in Allentown - Leslie Silversmith or some thing like that. I wore them all the time and never did transform into a necklace, ring, earring type of lover. Just my silver bangles which did manage to multiply but never surpass the joy I knew with the initial trio!
