Well, It Used To Be An Award ...

Last week Sandy of Traveling Bells passed on a blog award to me that she had received called the Over the Top Award. I thought it was lovely but the rules called for a) passing the award on to five other bloggers and b) answering the following list of questions with one word. Well, as you all know, I am rather bad at writing anything short and that includes one word answers to questions so as I thank Sandy for thinking of me with the award, I am a) not passing it on to anyone else and b) not answering the questions with one word. Go figure, eh? Sandy, I hope you don't mind too much!

2. Your hair? Desperately in need of something!

If anyone else wants to steal the list of questions and do a quick meme, I think that would be grand - award or not!


  1. I like Olive Garden, too. Although we do not seem to have any here in this pokey place I call home! Oh - you do realize it is not a Mexican restaurant, right? hahahaha!

    I did one word answers, but did mine on Facebook and tagged a few people.

    Hope your day is fabulous! Maybe Amanda will surprise you with a Snuggie of your very own!

    Big Hugs ♥xo

  2. you are a rebel! ha ha ha

    smiles, bee

  3. Great job on a great meme! Congrats and if you don't mind if Judd and I steal it?

  4. Great answers to this meme.
    We never go to The Olive Garden, but I wouldn't mind meeting you again at the one in Waterford. Ralph is game for doing something fun.
    That could be a plan..

    I haven't done a meme in eons, it seems. My next blog will be titled "Can't Keep Up, Can You?"
    Sound like a good title? It fits my life.

    I still have a ghost hunting post to conjure up!

  5. P.S. You should adopt that stray cat. He/she will bring you much joy.


Thanks for visiting!
