  1. Hi Ruth. I’m hoping to have my post ready tomorrow, but I’ll most likely be late.

    I also want to invite you to participate in my third annual Barrymore Trilogy Blogathon. It’s been announced for a while, but I’ve hardly got any participants. Hoping you can join. The link is below with more details.

    1. Thanks, Crystal. We’ll look forward to your post tomorrow. Font and Frock will be hosting, and I’ll let her know it will be late.

      Alas, I’m not able to participate in the Barrymore Blogathon this year due to other commitments. 😦


      1. No problems Ruth. I know what its like. I’m leading a busy schedule of late with my journalism studies and book research that I’m finding it hard to keep my blog active. I know its short notice, but I’m co-hosting another blogathon dedicated to Olivia de Havilland if you want to take part? Here is the link below.
