After months of eagerly awaiting for this event to arrive, I am euphoric to say that the Judy Garland Blogathon has now arrived, and will be continuing through to Judy’s birthday on June 10th.

During the course of the next few days a plethora of bloggers will be paying tribute to Judy Garland and her illustrious career by writing about all facets of her life. A big thank you to all participants. I look forward to reading all the entries.

Before I delve into things further, I must say that I have been suffering from a continuous bout of violent migraine attacks for the past week, and after consulting with the doctor for the second time in the past week today, I am being sent to the emergency ward at the hospital very soon. However, my brother Jarrahn has got access to my blog, and will be relieving me during my absence. As Jarrahn will be in charge of things while I’m away, he will be adding today’s entries onto the roster as they come in, and will be thanking you all individually. I should be back tomorrow for day two of the blogathon. Until then, happy Judy blogging to everyone.

    Hi, Phyllis! I just wanted to let you know that I saw your comment on the Dean blogathon and absolutely take as much time as you need to. I’m not feeling all that great myself still so I completely understand, but I’ll try my best to get my entry in for your blogathon before it ends. I hope we both feel better!

        Thank you for letting me know- Please be aware she is in my thoughts and prayers- and I hope she feels better real soon


  2. Hi Crystal,

    As you may have noticed, I did not complete my entry for this blogathon. I’ve been incredibly busy and wasn’t able to pull out all my stuff and photograph it. Maybe at the next Judy Blogathon 🙂

    Anyway, hope you are feeling better! I know how annoying regular headaches are and I can’t imagine having to go through the pain you’ve been going through.

  3. Hi Crystal. I hope you are feeling better. Thanks for putting together this blogathon. I took too long, but I enjoyed every essay and I commented on each one.

    Hi Jerrahn: Thank you for helping with the blogathon. You made a lot of people happy and did a nice thing for your sister. You must be a great brother.
