Friendly Friday


Hello Friends of the Friendless Marching Band!! I took my tuba with me on my trip so I could be all practised up for today. I see you have been practising as well. That's good, because a band is only as good as its members.

Join up now to be a member of the band. Just leave a comment stating which instrument you would like to play. Then return Friendly Fridays to go visiting the friendless.

The featured friendless site is Sabrina at Quick and to the Point. I chose her blog because I like:
  • her honesty
  • that she desires a communal village (she wrote about this in her first blog entry)
  • that her blog is a way for her to deal with her struggles and feelings
  • she is coping with a bipolar disorder
Also check out Ry and her cuddly kitty, KC, at Justme and my Midnight Thots.
Then visit Sister Celtic at Lopez Island Life.

There have been excellent nominations lately but I still want more...
Get your banner here.
Have fun!

lovely idea :)

thanks for the plug, never had so many visitors to my blog before!
usually i can figure out who they are

so who gets to be members?
just the featured site? what are your criteria for being a member of the FFMB?

Carol said...

Hi everyone, I am so pleased to hear from all the friendless sites today. I am especially glad to hear the giggles!
Anyone is able to join, all you have to do is leave a comment, stating that you want to be a band member and which instrument you want to play. Then come back every Friendly Friday to go visiting the friendless with us.

Way to go, FFMB. You are doing a fantastic job. See practising pays off!

ry said...

Carmen said...

Good news! Sister Celtic has joined the band as well and wants to play the cymbals. Hurray for our new members!!

What a fun idea. I'll go march on the parade now. Michele sent me.

margalit said...

Michele sent me. What an interesting idea to meet new bloggers. Good for you. I'll have to follow the parade route and see what's out there. Can I be a balloon instead of play and instrument? I'm tone deaf!

I'm late, as usual, but I'm making the rounds. Where ever are you getting all these band photos? You seem to have an infinitely supply.

Carol said...

Thanks Pearl. I know your time crunch on Friday. Anytime is ok,y'know!

There are an infinite supply of band photos out there. I have fun finding them.

Sabrina said...

Carol, I would be honored to be a member of the band. Thank you for sending everyone along to my blog and for the recommendation for the ring as well!

I've always wanted to play snare drum in a marching band. I'm about to hit finals week though so is it okay if I'm a few days behind for the next few weeks? Then I'll be able to be on time every week.

Carol said...

I am so pleased Sabrina. You must keep your grades up to be in the band:)
