Woo Hoo! I'm a Blog Star!

Today is a special day...I recieved this from my sweetheart lindanuts at Parker's Paradise...


I feel more like a "Rock Star"! tee hee Thank you, Linda!


I have also been tagged by Mare at Moon and Stars Studio to tell six unimportant things about myself. Here goes:


1. I hate celery. I love all veggies, and food in general..... except celery. Ugh.

2. I once had a pet rooster named Rudy, who followed me around everywhere I went. I could pick him up, and he would go to sleep in my hand. Gosh, he was a hoot.

3. When I was about 4 or 5 years old, I was stung 20+ times by a swarm of Yellowjackets. The only thing that saved me was my grandmother saw the whole thing and came running outside, picked me up and ran. I know she had to have been stung many times, too. She was a quiet, gentle person, who walked around very slowly on two arthritic knees. I never saw my grandmother move like she did that day! *sigh* My hero....

4. I wanted to be an Art teacher. I took art classes all four years of high school, then became a dental assistant. Go figure!

5. My favorite late-night snack is a bowl of Cocoa Pebbles cereal.

6. I love to mow. It's probably my favorite thing to do around the house. It takes me about 3-4 hours to mow and trim everything from start to finish, but I use the time on my lawnmower to just ponder about things. It's very relaxing to me! (Except when my weedeater won't start and I have to throw a hissy.)

Well, that's probably more information than you ever wanted to know about me, but there it is!
My picture for the day is this....

Smokey hopes everybody has a safe and wonderful weekend! Happy Memorial Day, everybody!

    Mowing is a chore we fight over here, too. So relaxing. I use it to clear my mind...

  7. Congrats...I enjoyed reading the "unimportant" things about you. Yellow jackets...ouch, that was quite a traumatizing event at such a young age.

  9. You deserve that star!
    Interesting things about you but I don't they are so unimportant, especially in light of your fascination with chickens! But bees, wow! That's a pretty great Grandma to rescue you!
    Have a fabulous holiday weekend!

    p.s. Hubby loves to mow, too. And we only have a push mower cuz our lot is small and broken up by plantings and 'stuff'! He never complains about it.

  12. Congrats on the blog award. I wanted to be an art teacher too. I took summer school one year to get those pesty regular classes out of the way and took nothing but art my senior year I loved it. Then I went to college and took Finance and got a job at a bank. What a crock. Hated that job and now I work in a factory. Money is good, job bad. What happened to my dream? Life I guess.

  18. Hi, Paula. Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm brand new to this whole thing and still learning as I go. But I have expert help from my nearly 13-year-old granddaughter. She is so smart when it comes to computers, blogging, cell phones, cameras, etc. Makes me feel, well, old. :)
    I love your dog, Smokey. He reminds me so much of a dog we had when our kids were young.
    I'll visit you again. Enjoy the holiday weekend.
