edited to add this:
Some of you are asking if this is a true story.
This happened last week and has been
getting lots of play on our local news.
I actually got the photo from
CNN.com today. I'm surprised that
this is not being widely reported
everywhere. . .
"I love my friends Abby and Faith.
Lex was here 2/1/10"
Thank God police were quickly on the scene,
handcuffed this offender and took
her to the police station.

I love this Wednesday "Get-to-know-ya" thang that 2nd Cup of Coffee hosts. Lots of Fun! Feel free to stop by her Blog to link up.
1. If you could compete in one Olympic event (not necessarily winter sports) what would it be?
I'm assuming that talent has nothing to do with this question (BIG assumption).
I would be a Gold Medal Winning Olympic Gymnast, jumping, gyrating and causing everyone to swoon
because I could contort my oh-so-slim-and-toned body into any shape I chose, but my ever-faithful-handsome-boyfriend-who-was-watching-from-the-sidelines would be keeping the adoring crowds at a
distance. "Can you tell I've been day-dreaming during the commercials"???
2. Do remember a specific Olympic moment from the past?
Dorothy Hamil getting the Gold in Gymnastics - and of course her PERKY hair cut!
She did win the GOLD, didn't she?
Before we all wanted Jennifer Aniston and Farrah Fawcet hair, we wanted Dorothy Hamil hair.
3. Have you ever known anyone who competed in the Olympics?
Nope. I don't run with a very athletic crowd, we're more the "sit and eat bon-bons" type.
4. If everyday activities were Olympic-worthy, which activity would you have a gold medal in?
"Creative Shopping" while twirling a flaming baton with a child on my hip.
and eating Bon Bons.
It could happen.
5. Do you know anything about your ethnic heritage?
When I found that out I understood my "nose".
Is this question really worthy of an answer?
Does a dog bark and a cat meow?
'Course I LOVE to sleep late!!
A better question would be, "Define late".
That's not a question. Oops!
7. Have you ever performed CPR on anyone? Do you know how? (Yes, that's two, I know. Whatevs.)
Thank God, "no". Hope I'm never put in that situation.
8. Name one country you'd like to visit and explain why.
"Texas. Cause it's a whole other country".
Greece. Would love to visit the land of "my people".
"The New Puppy", Little Golden Book. It's been a while.
I seldom read, except the Bible, and BLOGS!
I'm not real proud of this.
Would you like to give a "Shout Out" to some of your newest Bloggy Friends?
Why yes, I would. Thanks for signing on to "Follow" me around.
"Anything Fits A Naked Man" don'cha LOVE this name!!
"Seasons of My Mind" , an Oklahoma Blogger. Love the home folk!!
"Eternally Distracted" a somewhat mysterious Blogger. Love that!
"Come Sit By My Fire" A Blogger who tells it like it is!! Kudos!
12. What is your favorite meal at your favorite restaurant?
TAMALES, rice and beans; chips and Salsa. Mmmmmmm!
With a Margarita on-the-rocks alongside.
Followed by a splash of "Beano".

checked out once again.
the entire Mammogram area
professionally decorated in
shades of "pink".
Don't you love all the detail they
put into making this a comfortable,
"girly" area to have this important
test run? I particularly enjoyed the
nice art on the wall,
and the beautiful green plant,
as well as the fun reading
(Course I'm only guessing what
that would look like; I promise!)

On this night before Valentine's Day I'm reminscing about love's gone by and the memories are sweet, probably because I was fortunate enough to "get it right" when I married my Valentine many years ago. Still, it's fun to look back at the puppy love and crushes that came before that walk down the isle.
We were the talk of Ms. Hemphill's 4th gr class.
who I admired from a distance, gave me
a tiny china Tea set
and a BIG Valentine Card.
Thank you, Gary W.
I still remember it
after all these years.
at that time. I liked him.
And best of all, HE liked me.
We were a couple till he moved
on to high school and broke my heart.
MANY YEARS later I read in
the newspaper that he had died
in a boating accident. He left
behind a wife and two little girls.
A part of my youth died that day,
though I was happily married with
3 young children of my own.
"high school love"
with Larry B.
He was a Football player
and the sight of him running
onto the field as the school song played
was enough to light my fire.
We dated a little, but actually had
little in common, but the school
I had a date with a long time
highschool friend, Johnny C.
He was handsome.
He was kind.
He made me laugh.
We've been married 40 years
and have 4 children.
It was the best thing I ever did.
(btw, I know you read
you'd care to share?*
I'd love to hear.

I loved watching all the proud hard-working athletes marching in to represent their country. And I understand that a LOT of money was spent on this, AND a lot of work goes into making this sort of thing happen.
Albeit, there were some good technical illusions, and some good music, but not enough creativity for such a long ceremony. I love you Canada, but I think you missed it on this one.
What do you think?
Agree of Disagree, you're welcome to comment.

This is one of those times when the truth does truly hurt. In the summer I am animated, full of energy, going, doing, planning, thriving. Then, in late Fall I begin to slow, and go through the holidays at half speed. THEN, after that the brakes go on and I become someone I don't even know. And, when I look into the mirror I don't even recognize the person (?) who stares back at me.
looks like -
but never the style.
(immediately after dinner)
the girl in this photo!)
and I'm finding my cute capris,
a funky top and a wildly colored
pair of Flip Flops. . .I'm buying
a new shade of lipstick and
slathering on the Tanner.
I am RE-BORN.
What to do about the winter MEGA-FUNK?
I'd love your suggestions!
