As I have gotten older I realize that most things in life can be better with some good old fashioned laughter.

A smile, a snicker, a giggle, or a big old belly laugh can turn things around in many cases.  If you've noticed I tend to have a bit of a warped and twisty sense of humor.

When I first started reading blogs and then writing one, I only looked for rug hooking sites.  As I have explored blogland I have discovered some really creative and funny blogs on a variety of topics from recipes to spirituality to just random fun.  When something in my day goes a little wonky, I often find myself blog hopping and I find myself now with a wide variety of types of blogs on my regular visit list.

One of those blogs I recently discovered is the Chatty Crone.  What a nice surprise to visit the other day and discover that she has given me an award.

The rules say that now I need to tell you 7 things you don't know about me.  This is difficult because I tell you all most everything now!  But here goes

1. I like all music with the exception of rap music
2. I used to play the clarinet
3. I cannot - under any circumstances - clean out the inside of a chicken
4. I am not fond of heights.
5. I once smuggled some illegal sea shells and coral from the Phillipines inside the battery compartment of my laptop.  (I almost peed my pants going through security)
6. I'm not sure, but I may have eaten dog while in the Philippines.  (My strategy was not to ask to many questions when we were being hosted by the locals)
7. I hate being late - or when someone else is late.  Arrrgh!

Now I am supposed to pass this award along to 7 other bloggers, but I have decided not to pick.  There are just too many worthy recipients.  Soooo, Happy Valentine's Day - If you think you are funny - please accept this award!


  1. Congrats on your award!! It's always nice to be recognised!
    I will look up Chatty's blog because I always need a good laugh! If you want another...go to "It's between You & Me" on my side bar (she posted yesterday so it's a good way down)for a side splitter today...don't let the title scare you!! It is hysterical!!!

  5. Do you know that I think you are the total best!! You make my day and I love that you smuggled sea shells in your laptop. I love your blog so much and I look forward to always reading it and yes, you are funny. You make me laugh all of the time. When I am having a down day, I read blogs too. In fact how did I ever get on in life without them or the very lovely people who make my life so great by having a blog. Like you!

  6. Congratulations on your award. Now you have peeked my curiosity, could you please post a photo of the infamous sea shells! FYI I have never placed my hands inside the carcass of any fowl, I make my husband do the dirty deed. Love the photo of sweet little millie.
