The blogosphere is a wonderful place.
It’s a world within a world, within a world (blog world, internet world, physical world) where you can make new and wonderful connections with people, from the comfort of your own home/office via your pc (or mac). On occasion though, someone reaches out beyond blogspace and touches you in the flesh.
Every so often I put a little request in my blog post, asking people to consider sending me an item of clothing (hat, scarf etc) for one of the Iron Men in my ‘100 Amigos’ project. On Wednesday (3rd August) I got a package in the mail. Excitedly, I opened the box to discover a beautiful baseball cap all the way from Iowa. I had received my first Iron Man gift!!!!
I am absolutely thrilled, stoked, chuffed and just ‘made up’ to have received it and I am so grateful to Laura from Kitchentutor for sending it to me. Thanks Laura, you are no longer just a passage of text on a screen. Thanks to you, a little part of Iowa has become part of my journey to a ‘healthier’ lifestyle. You rock girl!!!
I’ve been waiting for a break in the (unpredictable) weather to take the photo and today was the day. So Laura, the Kitchentutor from the great State of Iowa, this picture is dedicated to you.
Iron Man no29
Why Iron Man no29?
Good question. Well, as Jan and I were walking to the beach to take the photo, we wondered what number State, Iowa was in the Union. A google search or two later and we discovered it was number 29. The search was on. We had to find Iron Man no29 in honour of Iowa. It took a while, but, we found him 🙂
If you have not checked out my ‘100 Amigos’ Project, please do so and why don’t you (like Laura from Iowa) send me something to take a photograph with. It doesn’t have to be clothing, although they are very much in need of something to wear, it can be anything.
Comment me on the blog and I’ll email you my address. Go on, you know you want too 🙂 I look forward to hearing (and receiving :-)) from you soon!
Oh and just in case you are wondering what on earth this project has got to do with a ‘healthier’ lifestyle, it was about a three mile walk finding no29. Now that’s good exercise baby!!!
GOD BLESS IOWA !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Adios amigos – especially mi amiga Laura / Cocina Maestra,
