Hey Ya! (Revised)

EDIT!!! The author of the article was good enough to send me the link (it wasn't up yesterday) so it's HERE and there is also a nice photo gallery HERE.
You can get a pretty good idea of the article from these photos I think though. If you have been following my blog for any time you already know all of what is in the article anyway. I thought they did a wonderful job on the story and photos both. I was surprised that it was such a large article. I got the whole front page of this section and half a page a little further back. Many thanks to all who made this possible. I really appreciate it!!
My Mom was really excited. I went up to her house today and took her out for her birthday lunch and while we were out I bought a couple of copies. Daddy Rabbit wanted a copy so I got one for him too. So, another nice thing to add to my scrapbook. For who to read later I don't know but it was fun.

You hit the bigtime, ER! Isn't this fabulous! Wish I could see the paper...darn. Hey, I just thought; maybe it will be online. I'm sure this perked you up greatly; it did this reader.

Trouble is...your name is in the article, so I don't know if you want to share the link or not!

Link to Gadsden Times article

(HermitJim, your link points to a version while I was editing it - don't know why the system allowed it but that link may not work)

There is also a photo gallery with several more pictures here

Ms Catoe, great article on Annie and her house. Loved the pix too.

Congratulations Annie on a fine article!
And the photo gallery (24 pics!)was really cool as well.
You truly are an inspiration to us all.

Hey Guys! thank you all for your kind words! I owe this partly to ya'll because I probably would never have kept blogging very long had ya'll not been so nice and encouraging to me.

Annie,

Congratulations on your new celebrity status!! Now I can say I know a famous person!

Seriously, you've done the hard work and deserve the credit. That's what America is all about, i.e. taking the initiative and getting things done by the sweat of your brow and doing what you can afford. Maybe you can share some pointers with our local, state and federal elected officials!!

Take care and God bless you and yours,

Barry

Wow! I go away for a few days and return to find out that you're a freaking celebrity!
Congrats! I'm glad you got the recognition you deserve. You've worked hard. Your home is beautiful. I can't wait to see it finished somewhere down the road.

Oh Cool! Gosh, I missed this post somehow :) Congrats, that's neat. Must feel strange, but at the same time good to know you can share things with others that will have a positive impact.
