Follow Friday 40 and Over!! 1 Year Anniversary!!!

Welcome to the 52nd edition of the  

Follow Friday 40 and Over!!
One whole year of this meme!  So many wonderful friends I've met and I'm very thankful for!  Xo

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 my friend Carol at 
"Facing 50 With Humor"


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.

  11. I cannot believe it has been a year!! Thank you for sticking it out with us we really appreciate all of your time and effort!!!

  12. Hi Java, how's goin? All rested up from last week. Many people are having graduations, but as big as my family is there are "NO" graduations or weddings this year. Although we did have one graduate from preschool. Does that count? ~hehehe~ Have a great weekend!

  13. I was sure hoping to get picked this week. I was trying to figure out how to make a button out of my picture. Close, but no cigar. Oh well, maybe next week. I love doing your meme I just go down the list to visit people, and so many are from all over the world. You run a very enjoyable meme. Thank you, and have a wonderful weekend.

  14. New Follower Thanks for the hop!

  15. Oh Java I am chuffed to bits. What a surprise and a fantastic start to my day. I'm so pleased to have been selected. Thank you so much. Now I can face grumpy old Hubby and the visit to the nurse with a smile on my face.
    Huge thanks and as always I am linking up now to your wonderful hop.
    Ps Blogger has locked me out of comments again (and my blog!)so this might post incorrectly but it is me Carol from facing 50 with humour

  16. I was so excited that I forgot to congratulate you - one year old. Many thanks for all the great friends I have met thanks to this hop and you.

  17. Wow! One year?!?! I followed here and started this hop very soon after you began it last year through my previous blog. (Week 8, I think?) When I came back and started a new blog a couple of months ago, I came right on over and joined in the party again!

    Java, You have the best hops and meme's out there and I always enjoy coming by and catching up with you and your beautiful family! I would say that you are bona fide Blog Hop Royalty! May you continue to be the "Queen of the Hops" for many more years to come! :~)
