Welcome to the 15th edition of the  
Follow Friday 40 and Over!!

Are you a blogger over 40? Yeah, welcome to the club!
Please join in the fun and get to know your fellow bloggers!!

Congratulations to Chris at A Fresh Start With...*~Kalei~*

Her blog was randomly selected from the participants of last Friday's Blog Hop to be the featured blog this week!!

She holds the #2 Hot Spot this week. Make sure you show her some love and follow her blog.

As a special gift, if your blog is selected and you do not have a blog button, I will make one for you!!!  Plus I will add your button to my Awesome Blogs  page!!

Maybe you will get selected next time!  Wouldn't it be great to have your blog showcased here!!!
Good luck to all!

The RULES to join in are very simple!

1. Grab the button
2. Add your link to the list
3. Visit as many other blogs as you can
4. Follow the ones you like (and comment on their blog to say that you are following)

NOTE:  PLEASE leave your blog address when you leave a comment!!  I have had several people wanting to follow back but the blogger can't always be found through the google info page!!
This list is new each week. The links do not carry over. Please link up  each week for new participants to find your blogs. It will be visible all week to visit  the blogs listed.

While you are here, make sure you check out the
Over 40 Blogger List!!

  2. I would love to do your tree if you lived a tad closer....

  3. What a fabulous blog. Love the idea of "Follow Friday Forty and Over." Even though I'm 43 years old, I feel better now than I did 20 years ago. 40 really is fabulous!

    Thank you!

    Happy to be your newest follower! :)

  4. I forgot to mention I grabbed the button. :)

    How fun!

  5. thanks for hosting I just love this group of girls...

  6. Thank you again for hosting this wonderful friday blog hop.....please stop by to link up your blog hop and one single post (double posts, yea!) over at my spot, La Bella Vita.....thanks, kiddo! Roz

  7. I've got your blog hop button on my sidebar and was hoping for some fellow blogger love to help promo my friday hop that is fledgling . . . no need to post this comment, if that's ok with you....just between you and me. But I need a bit of promo help......delete it later if you like. grazie mille, Roz

  8. Once again, thanks for hosting this, Java.

    Happy FF!

  9. I love your blog! Visiting from NFF! The Dear diary posts are so great - feelin' ya with the school lunches :) and I was so surprised to read about bras and cancer! This was news to me. I used to wear mine 24 hours, but stopped recently (nursing a new little one). Maybe I won't go back to my evil old ways hmmm...

  10. Great, and thanks Java....did you link up? Didn't see it. Too much to remember these days, huh?

  11. This is always fun.

    I don't have a blog button yet so I'd love to win.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  12. Hi Java

    I've been reading your blog for awhile now and have signed up to follow you - I invite you to follow me back at Create With Joy!


  13. Hi Girlfriend, I'm back! Thought I'd say hello, and happy Friday! Have a great weekend, and oh by the way I grabbed your button, which is not on the left side of my blog.

  14. Happy Friday! Thanks for the opportunity to meet great bloggers :D

  15. Happy Friday and thanks for hosting!
    It's so sad that too many bloggers just leave their links and think it's a miracle to get audience, I mean loyal followers, not just number of followers but people with whom you can build a relationship...(I know some bloggers want only traffic - that's not for me - I look for real people behind the link...)

    On my post is a link to a post to read, for all Blogger bloggers who do NOT have Name/URL option in their comment you! :) Sorry but it means extra work for me (sign in to openid) and for those who click openid icon (it goes to my openid page NOT to my blog)...
    I hope one day you too have time to fix this... :)

    Have a great weekend!

  16. Fun idea for a blog hop ...
    It's nice to see that there are a lot of over 40 bloggers out there in the blog-sphere :-D
    I love being over 40 and especially being a grandmother!

  17. Java: Thank YOU!... BTW Kalei is my cat's name, not mine... Mine is Chris...:-)...

  18. Just recently found your blog. This will be my first time participating in Follow Friday and looking forward to meeting new bloggers. I can be found here.
