BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

I have a hard time picking my favorite book - maybe Gone With the Wind. I am usually reading 3 or 4 at a time and one of them is my favorite at the time I am reading it.

The rose is exquisite.

I also loved "To Kill a Mockingbird!" It's hard for me to pick a favorite because I really do love all kinds of books. My Mom was a librarian so we were always reading something--I can remember a couple of summers where I tried to knock off "War & Peace" ...I'm still trying to do that! :-))

My favorite book is a 3 book series called the Alaskan Quest by Tracie Peterson. I have read them so many times...just love them :)

Amazing header! Sassy and Scout are correct! Folks are folks! I don't have a favorite book. I have several going in my kindle right now. I am reading Spoken from the Heart by Laura Bush, Strong Brew by Mary Kay Andrews (under another name),N in the Sue Grafton series, and the first book in the Ladies Detective Agency series.

Sassy, girlfriend, you are looking mighty fine today. Your coat is very shiny...are you a Breck Girl?

Mom said she just watched To Kill a Mockingbird, on TV not long ago.

Mom's favorite book is "Evergreen" by Belva Plain. It spans about 40 years of young girl's life during her immigration to the US.
Happy Weekend Madi and Mom

"To Kill a Mockingbird" is definitely one of my favorites. I was named after the main character (Pip) in Great Expectations!

Your pal, Pip

That rose in the header is gorgeous! I almost can smell its perfume!! And that tick in the post below.... HORRORS!!!

I love the old authors, Jane Austen and Louisa May Alcott, to name two... also the writings of Charles Dickens, Mark Twain and Wilkie Collins mysteries... and new authors too, like Candace Bushnell. Great escapes!! xoxoxo

Sassy looks so pretty! Love the quote! We don't really have a favorite book that mom can think of right off but she sure used to read all of the time. Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Remington said...

Great pic and quote. Beth's very favorite book is Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser. She loves to read! It is neat to see what others favorites are so I can tell Beth to put them on her reading list....BTW my favorite book is SpongeBob Goes Green!: An Earth-Friendly Adventure.

Mom doesn't get to read as much any more but she really has so many favorites. To Kill a Mockingbird would definitely be on that list.

Beautiful header - awesome work.
