remembered a statement I made months...MONTHS, ago....
You know how your heart races and your palms get sweaty and
you are just about to have a run-away when the
postman or UPS person leaves a
PACKAGE on your porch swing ??

When I opened the package, out came this
adorable, handpainted sign....
from THERESA to ME !
I couldn't believe it....!!
Just take a look at those beautiful roses...
She wrote the sweetest note....
"Hi, bj,
I remembered that you showed a sign you wanted..I hope you like this one.
I am sorry it took me so long to get it to you. Hope you didn't buy
the other one already!! :O)
Love your blog and love you. I love your witt. You make my day when
I visit you, dear!
This is the first time in ten years that I have picked up a brush."
Love ya, friend"
Well, I don't need to tell you that I cried my eyes out....
Mr. Sweet came into the room and couldn't imagine why I was
holding this cute little sign and crying like a baby....
and I fell totally in love with MY SIGN.
My heartfelt thanks to you, dear one...
I cried because YOU REMEMBERED and
YOU MADE IT for me.
You know, don't you, that I will think of you every time
I look at my little
and that I love you!!

Hello BJ...

I came over just as soon as I read your note, my friend! Hope that I can answer your question.

If you simply republish a post by just changing the posting date it will post "as is" with all of the previous comments. If you want to republish a post without the comments, you have to make it a new post. I explained how to do this (Method 2) in my info. post. It's not hard at all and I'll try and walk you through it:
1. Choose the post you want to repost. Click the HTML tab...the entire post is now seen in HTML.
2. Copy the entire post.
3. Now go to "Create new post".
4. Once you have new post opened, click on the HTML tab. Paste the copied post here. This all has to be done in the HTML mode to work.
5. You can now click back on the "Compose" tab to see your copied post.
6. Now it's ready to republish! It's an exact copy of the previous post but is seen as a "brand new" post with no comments.

My friend, I hope that helped. It really sounds much more complicated then it really is! Hehe! If you have any more questions or need some help...just holler! I'd be happy to help if I can! I'd just love for you to join in with us for "Sunday Favorites"!!!

Love ya,

Sandi McBride said...
