BFF tag….

Awwww shucks….I was asked to play a game of Blogging Best Friend Tag by Big Hair Envy. And here I thought I might be to old for besties. Thanks BHE.
If you have not read her blog, you are missing out on some Fun. With a capital F.
She is one sassy southern girl who enjoys life. And I like that. No complaining, just good stuff.
Plus, she is a former spiral perm addict. AND I used to give spiral perms for $$$ back in the working days.
So we are pretty much kindred “hair” spirits.
Her comments can make me spit out my morning of coffee.

The funny thing is, she was given this Tag by Suz @ Alive in Wonderland. (wonderland is Orange County, CA for those NOT in the know) Suz is a fabulous photographer and the reason I found this funny is because Suz kinda/backhanded/sorta tagged me for this recently and I was not sure if I should do it or not. Well, the stars have spoken and I shall. Plus, Suz has a wonderful name. Her Mom and my Mom both have good taste when it comes to naming babies. And she leaves very funny comments that always make me laugh.

Here are the rules:
1. Only five people are allowed.
2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog.
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog, and live in another part of the world. 4. You must link back to whoever linked to you.

This is different in the fact that you can ONLY have 5 people…what a bummer.

How can I pick??? Oh, randomly, like me.

When it says the person has to live in another part of the world, well that is just plain crazy. Everyone knows I live in my OWN world. Heck, I could pick
this good friend and she lives just around the corner from me. She most likely won’t pass this on, she is a shy blogger. Go give her a visit though and tell her to get out more. Stop working so much and why in the world are you spending so much time trying to change this world???
Oh, cause YOU are da’bomb that is why!!! After Nov 4th, she will have more free time.

Laurie at Kellers on The Prairie has such a lovely blog. She shares her part of the world with everyone. I love her pictures and I have a feeling that her camera is glued to her hand…she takes it everywhere. She and her love moved away from the big city back to her home town and are having a lovely life. Her love has just recovered from a nasty accident, but I think he is on the mend with all her care and attention. Plus, she can grow all kinds of tasty produce. If she were closer, I would take my reusable shopping bags to her back yard and fill em’ up.

I suppose I could consider Clippy Mat being from a different part of the world too…she is a Canadian, originally from England. She gives some insight to the cultures of both countries.
Did you know Canadians have a Thanksgiving? Those pilgrims got around …She is funny and witty She writes what she thinks and she ain’t scared to say too much of anything.
Don’t even think of going to her house of Halloween for some tricks OR treats. She is very against that holiday and most likely she will be downstairs line dancing anyway.

If I ever get myself back to Texas I am going straight over to the “compound” and visiting with Grandma J. I love people who socialize and Grandma J is “social People.” You never know what she is going to come up with, or what kind of trouble she will create….good trouble though. Fun stuff. (Like a pole dancing teddy bear?)
I always look forward to her posts and her comments. She is genuinely a nice person and anyone who converses with her realizes this. Check her out, she will make your day!

One of the most recent blogs I started reading is Baby Favorite . A working mom way over on the left coast. She recently wrote about her brother’s terrible accident and it really touched me. (I have thought of this daily now)
I lost my brother years ago, she still has hers, but not like she would care to.
She always has something nice to say and is in a really bad place right now herself. You see, in her little town they only have 3 good shopping stores and wouldn’t you know it, one of them is closing down. Damn bad economy. For a woman, that is tragic. She has been in my thoughts and prayers lately. I hope she can overcome this too. 🙂 Really though, check her out.
She has some good stuff to say!!!

If you don’t pass this on, that is ok. I won’t hold it against you. (for too long)


I was tagged by the wonderful Karen.

Thanks Karen 🙂

I have not played tag in many, many years, but here goes!

The rules:

1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog – some random, some weird.

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blog.

4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1)I can still do a cartwheel (one handed) a round off and a handstand.
Sometimes, even when I am home alone I do them all. Just cause I still can.
(I am usually sore afterwards)

2)I was a girl scout leader for 7 years. Yes, parents trusted me to take their kid away on weekends for trips and camping.(with fire) I was really good at it too. 😉

3)I love to eat salad for any meal. Even breakfast.

4)I was so thin as a child. When I was 14 a Dr. asked me if I threw up after a meal.
Noone ever asks me that anymore.

5)I am afraid someone will break into our house while we are sleeping. So I keep a very sharp fillet knife under the mattress on my side. I used to also keep mace under my pillow when Jeff traveled, but it expired.
The joke used to be if he came home unannounced, I would shank him then blind him.

6)I think I take great pictures and I am not afraid to tell people this.

7)I am meticulous for keeping party rsvp records. Even for the kids birthdays. If someone does not show that was supposed to, or vice versa, I know. I remember.
I also have this for Christmas cards. If you don’t send me a card for 2 years, you are off the list.
I still like you, but you don’t get a card.
I know, it is a sickness.

It is hard to pick only 7 for this so I let my girls pick. Forrizzle.

They have their favorites already.

Yes, they read my blog and they love all your funny comments…..

Grandma J They both talk so highly of this funny Texan. Lo is very proud to have been born in the Lonestar State. So, they have quite the bond already. Plus, she is L & L’s kind of humor.

Jason Oh, my girls like funny people, but if they are gay, well then forget it. They LOVE that. Although you did drop the “F” bomb recently…but I suppose it came from one of your students so that is ok. (?)

Katie leaves the best comments too….and bonus, she has cute boys and that adorable boxer to boot. It is a win, win for them.

Dawn was also a girl scout leader with me for some time. If she had her way, we would still be doing it….I must post sometime about all our shananigans. Like the night we slept over in Sea World and at bedtime an employee there was going to kick out the laughing girls….that would be the two leaders. 🙂 Yeah, we could not control ourselves.

ChiTown Girl We took our girls on a surprise summer vacation a few years back…to Chicago. It was a blast, the kids love that city. And they both learned that Chicago is NOT a state…and next time bring more cash to hand out to the homeless.

Rebeckah Is just a sweet person. Always leaving the nicest comments and plus she is starting to use reusable shopping bags!!!! Yeah for her!!!! Next, she will be composting. (right?)

Clippy Mat What a great name. A wicked sense of humor. So funny, and she is learning to line dance. How cool is that. When the line dance classes are over, she will start break dancing. (right?) My girls have some sort of obsession with that country just north of us too…..
