Hope you are having a lovely weekend! It is raining here and cool. The pond on the North Forty is actually running over which is a beautiful site after our dry summer.
Thanks for coming by again today. I have another Blogazine guest for you.
Deb writes the blog Sweet Tea and if you have not met her today is your lucky day.
(If you CLICK her site name in the sentence before this it will take you to her site.)
So here is Deb's Story.........
1. No matter how much I love Garth Brooks, he is never going
to marry me.
2. Never try to “wax” your nose hair. Don’t ask me how I know.
3. There are only two occasions worth getting up early for:
to leave for vacation and/or to give birth.
4. If you “step on a crack” your MaMa will still be OK.
5. Blogging is not similar to jogging; it cannot be
considered as a form of aerobic exercise.
6. All is fair in love, war, and hot flashes.
7. Caution: Thongs are not for sissies.
8. If you can find a man who gives foot massages - MARRY HIM!
9. Margarita’s make everything better.
10. Margarita’s AND a good Friend make everything perfect!
That’s what my Dad called me during my teen years. I never knew what that meant until recently. “They are called banty roosters after the bantam rooster both because of their size and because their behavior can "out-rooster" the more standard sized rooster. “ I stood 5’ tall and had a bit of an attitude in those days. I’m still 5’ tall but I’ve mellowed a lot along the way.
Would I lie to you? Huh? Huh?
I met my husband in a typing class in high school.
We married soon after high school.
We always tell our kids, “Be careful who you type with!”.
We have an “Open Marriage”. He is open to the fact that I have
a huge crush on Garth Brooks. I am open to the way he yearns for Michelle Phfifer. Fantasy works nicely for us.
We have 4 children; a daughter age 41, a son age 38, another son age 35,
and another daughter age 17. Yep 17! Who says God doesn’t have a sense of humor? We’re still raising a teenager!! We also have 3 beautiful Granddolls, age 13, 11, 8 - a blonde, a brunette, and a red-head!
Life really is “about the journey”, don’t you think?
I’m thankful for where the journey has brought me in this season of life. I was born in Oklahoma and lived my entire life there until 8 years ago. It was then that a job change for my husband brought us to Louisiana. I never dreamed we would ever leave Oklahoma. Our family and friends worried that I’d be miserable and homesick and have a terrible time making the adjustment. Surprise! I love it here!
I have always loved the written word.
I once wanted to by a Lyricist.
I wrote some song lyrics and even had a couple that were recorded. Does anyone remember LuLu Roman Smith from Hee Haw days? She recorded one of my songs. Another was recorded by a gospel singer. I was once invited by a music company to visit Nashville - It was during that visit when I realized I liked to write, but I didn’t like to negotiate contracts. I backed away from it all at that point. No regrets. “Heee Haaaw!”
I love my online Friends.
I have met a group of women who I’ve known now for 8 years.
We live all across the US and even into Canada.
Once a year we vacation together, then throughout the year
we stay connected via the internet.
Real Friendships blossom and grown in Blogland.
This is a wonderful opportunity to meet and
“do life” with people we’d never get to know
otherwise. I hope you’ll stop by to visit me.
There’s always plenty of “SWEET TEA”
for everyone and all are invited.
I’d love to meet you!
Honey I appreciate you writing this awesome story for us. I enjoyed reading it very much and I would love to meet you too.
I have told Deb several times how I laugh every time I open her site up and see her headboard. Too funny! Be sure and go by Deb's site Sweet Tea. It's always fun to make new friends out here in our amazing big world of blogging.
All of You are so kind for leaving me your comments about My Night In Prison post. If you have not had a chance to read it I would love for you to. I think my next post of the prison will be about my first job there and how I got hired. It will include working side by side with a woman in the mail room who is now on Death Row here in Texas. Sad story about my co-worker.
Believe it or not I did update my Blogazine List at the top of my home page. I added the past guest that I have been so far behind in listing. Please check and see if your site is on there and if not let me know so I can add it. Of course, if you have neglected to do a story for me then you won't find your name. hahaha
Sorry trying to be funny tonight. You know though it is never to late to tell your story and be a guest so all you have to do is send me your story and pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org. Easy peasy......or something like that.
Been home this weekend because of the heavy rains we are having plus I my chest is making some kind of funny noise. I was laying in bed last night and I heard this noise both Tinkerbell and I raised up looking for something or someone else in the room and it was me. Yep I know I have lost it. lol
The last few days I have been sad over the news about our friend Dr. Kathy McCoy. She had a horrible accident at home and is now trying to rest and heal. I wish I could be there for her but of course I live so far away. Please add her to your prayer list. Dr. Kathy I am thinking of you dear friend.
Also my middle son Clint has been going through a lot of test this month trying to find out why he has been feeling bad so I would love it if you could add Clint to your list of prayers too. He is the father of my two precious grand babies and I love him so much.
I love you too and enjoy your Sunday. I will be home watching Joel Olsteen instead of being in church.
We are having more rains tonight and tomorrow so I am not taking a chance of getting wet.
Well in the rain that is...I do take my baths. hahaha
Geezzzz what are we going to do about this darn Word Verification at Google now for Blogs. I honestly can't see the words right and never have I been able to leave a comment on a site that uses it without trying three or four times. So is it just me?
