Who’s Stylin Now!


A few days ago, Jamie (Fnkybee) at http://fnkybee.wordpress.com    left me a note asking me to mosey on over to her blog.   I am thinking she has some hot photos of Brad, Johnny and other hunky dunky guys.  Tada!   Jamie is the proud recipient of a Major Award.  The Stylish Blogger Award.  Blogdom’s answer to the Oscars.   Well, this could not happen to a nicer “mad woman-wild girl.” Fnkybee is a very cool lady.   She is a loving wife & mother, loyal friend and bad-ass sister.  She battles injustice and rampant stupidity in her spare time + Fights against evil ComCast + Parties with the best of gentile Nashville folk + Rocks the night away every chance she gets.  

So there I am just reading along as she does her best awards speech when I tripped over my name on her blog.  Damn girl!  Ms Fnkybee picked me as one of her choices for the very same Stylish Blogger Award.  What?  Really?  Well, All right!  I got it, uh huh!   I got it, uh huh!  Happy Dance time! Wahoo!  I was among a very prestigious group of bloggers.  Don’t I feel humble.  So now I have to follow the rules.   OK!  

RULES:    I must list 7 things no one knows about me.  Then choose 6 nominees to pass on the Stylish Blogger Award.  Leave a message for each of the six letting them know you have something for them on your blog.

Major Award to Me Haha!

    

 So  here  is my boring stuff.

       1.      All passengers in my car make me swear never to sing along with the music.  Yes, it really is that bad.

2.    Back in the day I had a mad crush on David Cassidy of The Partridge Family.  He was so, so cute and had great hair!

        3.     Gretchen was our guinea pig.  For most of her 8 years with us, she endured our cat Charlie sleeping in her cage.  She was groomed with Barbie accessories while the kids attempted to dress her up.  She would have no part of that.  Surprising she lived so long.

4.    I am peeved at Publisher’s Clearing House.  They assured me they would  to pay a visit to my house, bringing  the bouquet of roses, balloons and giant Million dollar check to my door.  Big Fat Liars!

       5.     I spent a great deal of my youth in the Apple Tree bordering our yard.  I watched my 5 older brothers be ratted out for smoking on numerous occasions.  They had no idea who squealed.  I heard them say things I did not understand …until years later. They all thought they were quite the Chick Magnets.   HaHaHaHaHa!

6.   For a few years I taught adults a healthcare business class at a local technical school.  As a break in the curriculum, I read Dr Seuss books and held discussion groups after.  The discussions were amazing.  If counselors or psychologists want to allow people to open up and speak of their issues, give them a few green eggs and ham! 

      7.   Maybe someday my Prince will come and take me away to travel the world.  ‘Tis a dream I had.  I promise I will not sing to him!

Whew! There are so many terrific blogs how can I possible pick only 6 ?  Special mention goes back to Fnkybee.  She was bestowed the Award again by  thoughts at http://thoughtsappear.wordpress.com/.   So, I must think on something for her at a later date.

I have my favorite blog buds and a few you may not know.  They are well worth checking out.  C’mon, we all need to get out more because…

          “The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.”                                                                                                                                     * unknown

So, the Award goes to……

  1   http://nancygedney.wordpress.com     Nancy lives in Idaho, loves animals and writes a lovely blog with insight, humor and much grace.  I love the warmth in her writings.

2   http://fromthelittleyellowkitchen.wordpress.com      Chrissy and Lauren, 2 college grads that are best buds and love to cook in their spare time. There is plenty of delicious and mouth-watering food.  Yumm!  Great photos.  I always have a good feeling when I visit the yellow kitchen.

3    http://takearideonthereading.wordpress.com    Tarot started this blog for the WordPress Post a Day Challenge.  He lives in Toronto and fights unfair taxation daily.  His blog is intelligent, timely and filled with blogging tips.  This is a blog for readers.  He also has another blog aimed at writers at http://quidmont.wordpress.com 

4   http://findingstrengthtostandagain.wordpress.com    Tara has overcome so many obstacles in her life.  I am very humbled when reading of the challenges she encounters in her daily life.  She is also a navy wife and proud of it.

5   http://lifeintheboomerlane.wordpress.com      Renee is a writer of novels, a former teacher and hula hoop champion.  Renee lives in Virginia.  I discovered her recently and enjoy and appreciate her humor.

6   http://www.cassagram.com     Cassagram:   like a telegram only funnier.  Cassandra writes with a terrific wit.  She is young, hip and offers a fresh take on her world.  Plus, she has a regular item that I love called Boyfriend of the week.  Lots of hunky dunky guys. Well worth the visit.

Thanks again to Fnkybee.

    Very funny and I’m betting your a fast talker. I promised my husband I wouldn’t sing and thanks for visiting my blog earlier. I’ll visit again.

    • Hey EddyBetty,
      Now why would you say Fast Talker? I only sing alone for I know I get credit for my enthusiasm! Loved your poem. And I will see you around as well.
      Barb

    • NO! Charlie became lonely and took advantage of the cage. Poor Gretchen would hover in the corner at first, then became accustomed to it. I lost all photos from that time or I would post it. Those 2 were very cool pets! It is a happy memory.
      Thanks

  2. Awwe! I love it!! You deserve it girlfriend!!!!! My son has asked me not to sing in the car too. Just proves my point that I sound like a dying cow when I do, but if I’m alone in the car I am belting it out..Celine Dion Style. Not listening to Celine but acting like I can sing like her. haha!

    How can I not “like” this post! Thanks Barb! Double thanks in fact for mentioning Tarot and my evil twin Quidmont. :)

    I humbly accept and will honor the terms of the deal. I’ll be posting shortly. :)

    Thanks just don’t say it enough Barb. You’re the greatest!

    – Bob (Tarot/Quidmont) Johnston

    • Well deserved Sir! Happy to mention your blogs anytime. I always enjoy your words, thoughts and cool new ideas. Plus…it is a great way to promote your blog and others.

    This is great! I got linked here by Quidmont. I’m glad to have found your blog, I really enjoy your posts. And the passengers of my car usually are nice enough to not comment on my singing – but they do tend to criticize the awful music I choose for the sing-ability and dance-ability, not necessarily the talent of the artist :P

    – Michelle

    • Well Hello Michelle.
      Welcome! Thank you for stopping. I really enjoy Bobs blogs also. Apparently the people I know are not so kind when listening to me sing. Oh, well! I did stop at your place and I will return when I can stay longer. Love your quote.

        Maybe the passengers of your car are just jealous that they do not have the courage to belt out song lyrics! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  5. Yowsa, lady! Thank you for pointing the finger (I didn’t say which one!:) at me. I hope I will deserve your kudos.

    I love the thought of your poor guinea pig. Here I am in the lobby of a Canadian hotel, snickering.

    I’m glad Michelle found you. ; Sounds like she’ll be a lovely blog friend. And oh, BTW, thanks for introducing me to your friends. I didn’t know any of them except me. This’ll be soooo much fun.

    Love you, friend
    Nancy

    • Gee, I would not point any fingers..as far as you know! Oh, you know I love your blog and you always have such nice words for everyone. And, by the by, are you having a bit of a vacation? Or, is it business related? Oh, I am just jealous. I feel like packing a hobo bag and run away…. Blah, Blah.
      You are just super. Enjoy your time away.
      Barb

    • Hi
      You young ladies are very deserving. I do feel good when I stop by. You are both fun and the food is fabulous. Also…Could be that I miss my yellow kitchen. I miss that place, but it was long ago. Lots of happy memories there.
      Thanks for stopping and you are always welcome here.
      ~Barb

    • Welcome!
      Well, you know if we are all bad enough, we should be able to go on tour!! What do you think? Thank you for stopping by. Please do not be a stranger.
      ~Barb

    • Why Thank You! I hope you enjoy checking out a few new folks. I have discovered more blogs. This has been so much fun!!
      Today I am grateful I have power after our ice storm.
      Take Care.
      Barb
