The Ultimate Blog Party – Use Me and Abuse Me Days!

photo (30) 1

Welcome to all of the new followers of the Wild Ride!  Here’s your chance to meet some of my friends. This virtual blog party always lasts for days.

Bring a link from ONE of your blog posts and paste it in my comment section. Then the party will begin. Click on a few. Check out their place. Tell them “Susie sent me!” Hang out for a while. Maybe you’ll like what you see and will subscribe. They’ll click back to check out your digs. Some may subscribe to your blog! See? It’s so much fun!

Only leave ONE link or you’ll end up in my spam filter. That can be so embarrassing.

If you leave a link, then click on a few. You wouldn’t go to a party with a doggy bag, fill up on food and take off, would you? Of course not. The more links you click, the more fun you’ll have!

DJ Ksmash in in the house and he’ll be spinning all day and night. Help yourself to the buffet and the bar. Rather have coffee? The barista is chillin’ and just waiting for your order. You might want to drink a Red Bull with me!

Have fun mingling and don’t forget to dance!

I’m going to take a few runs and will come back and read all of your posts.

Don’t forget to enter the caption contest! 

The more the merrier so spread the word on Twitter and Facebook!

  1. I’m so glad you did this on a Saturday, Susie! Like Elyse, I haven’t really been able to participate when they were on weekdays because of work (that darned work!) Here’s my latest post for this week’s WP photo challenge – a shot I took of a Hawksbill turtle while diving in Bonaire in December. Have fun on the slopes today – the snow should be awesome at Breck – almost 100″ base!


    • That is such a gorgeous shot Cathy!
      Breck was mighty fine today. Super soft snow and temps around 34 degrees! We skied all morning and skated this afternoon! It’s been such a long time. Now it is nap time….I mean coffee time! Gotta read all of these posts!
      I will have these parties on Saturdays from now on! Glad you could make it.


  2. Susie, what fun on another frigid, snowy day in Central NY. BUT…big game tonight: SU vs. North Carolina! It gets us through the winter. Anyway, thanks for this terrific format for meeting other bloggers and sharing their imaginative, entertaining work. Kudos to you.
    In the spirit of winter themes, here’s a semi-fictitious account of an afternoon at Panera:


  3. So cool that you decided to do one of your great parties. Since I’ve been housebound lately with my recuperating hubby (hip surgery two weeks ago), this is the only kind of party I can attend right now.

    Here’s my Valentine’s post from yesterday on the subject of marriage vows. I suspect you will be able to relate.

    Now I’m off to visit some of these great blogs. So many posts, so little time.


  4. Hola people! Not only am I bringing Mojitos to the party but I am also bringing hand warmers, mink coats and a sun lamp for those of us who are suffering from SAD! Woot, woot! I love that you love winter and that you are having us over once again for some snowpocalypse fun! Here’s an oldie post that I thought I’d share.


  5. I swear I was roofied at your last party Susie. I still haven’t located my pants and I’m not to thrilled with the new tattoo. Especially in the spot it was placed – ouch!

    Yet, who am I to pass up one of your great parties? I’m back for more abuse. Here is a little warped take on Valentine’s Day from my twisted mind. Enjoy and thanks for the invite!


    • What an annoying guy!!! Funny how the people we meet make the greatest characters in stories. I met one of them for the second book in my series on a plane back to Colorado. What a totally creepy guy! I made a comment that he blew off, but he was all over the flight attendant. Even she seemed nervous around him.
      Thanks for coming to the party! Lots of new faces here. We drank your bottle of wine, but there’s a lot more where that came from! 🙂


  6. Turnabout- as per the nasty weather- was fair play for me this weekend. I attended a party on Friday night, dropped in on one Saturday and am slated for a birthday party this afternoon. Three parties in one weekend . . or three more than I have attended in forever. And I’m gonna consider this my fourth, if you don’t mind.


    • I love this one David! It will strike a chord with many!
      Thanks for bringing it to the party! Have fun clicking on links and introducing yourself to new faces! Tell them, “Susie sent me!”


    • Love your recommendations! It has been a long winter for a lot of folks! I’m headed out skiing again today. You can’t beat the conditions in Colorado this year!
      Thanks for bringing this to the party! It’s so great to see you. Help yourself to the buffet and have fun meeting the guests!


    • I just got back. It was a bluebird day! Thanks!
      I’m still laughing. You got me on this one Paul!
      Thanks for bringing this to the party! Love the soda bread. It’s my favorite since I am a McCartan after all. 🙂 We tapped your keg. There are a lot of thirsty dancers!


  7. Whew! I’ve been held captive by two truly wild riders for the past few day. They are just 4 and 6 years old so I didn’t bring them along to your party even though they love to boogie! When I saw you on the slopes up there I wanted to jump into that shot and take a run or two with you. How much fun would that be? I’m sure you’ve been glued to the Olypmics’ coverage like I have. I wanted to share the love about the amazing Bilodeau brothers in my blog on Friday.
    It’s a story the whole world should enjoy, dont’cha think?

    Now I’m off to mingle with the hangers-on here! I did notice Phil had lost his pants … again! You have the best bashes, Susie ~ no question about that!


    • I would love to meet the little nubbins and ski with you!
      Loved your post and your French connection! Nice would be a blast to visit for the French version of where Mardi Gras came from!
      Thanks for coming. It’s always a rager!
      Let me know if you find Phil’s pants…. 🙂


    • Loved your fun stories about growing up! It reminded me of a few of my own!
      It’s never to late to join in the fun! Just click on a few links and tell them, “Susie sent me.” They should click back to your place! The more you click, the more fun you’ll have meeting my friends!


    • Thanks for stopping by! Help yourself to the buffet and the bar. Click on a few links and tell them, “Susie sent me,” and they should click back to your place! Have fun and don’t forget to dance!
