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.

Versatile Blogger Award

I received this cool award from Liz at Ninny's Notes. Liz is certainly versatile, creative, and one of the most energetic people in the world.

In accepting this award, I'm required to reveal 7 things about myself that my readers don't know.
That will difficult for me, as I have no secrets, and some of my readers have known me most of my life, right SH and SWV? 

1. My first spoken word was not, "mama" or "papa".
It was "puppy".
(No, big surprise there, huh?)

2. I was a thumb sucker as a child.
(I have the overbite to prove it.)

3. I've seen the movie Camelot, with Richard Harris and Vanessa Redgrave, at least 20 times.
(Franco Nero was so hot as Lancelot.)

4. My favorite fragrance is gardenias.
(Despite the fact that my college roommate bathed in Jungle Gardenia, right SWV?)

 5. I'm a procrastinator.
(This has developed since I've retired, hmmm?)

6. I have a weakness for Little Debbie Swiss Cakes.
(When I see round hay bales, I think "Swiss Cakes!")

7. Johnny Mathis is my favorite singer.
(Hubby and I saw his Christmas show at the Fabulous Fox Theater several years ago.
An amazing evening!)

Remington's Mom just informed me that today is Johnny's 75th birthday! (Thanx, Beth!)
Happy Birthday Johnny!

Thank you, Liz, for sharing this fun award. I would like to pass it on to anyone who has not yet received it and would like to accept.

And now, I will leave you with one of Johnny's best.

Congrats on receiving the VB award!
My hu-mom loves gardenia, too. She played the Johnny Mathis song very loud, several times. I guess she liked it too.
Keep up the great blog.

Drools and licks,

Yes, I have known you most of your life; but there were facts here I did not know! Very interesting! Congrats on the award!

I love Johnny Mathis! One of the fun things of my early teen years was listening to him all night long on a radio program called "Night Mayor." (Well, not really all night because the radio stations all signed off by midnight back then...some even at sundown! They always played something like "Goodnight Sweetheart" followed by the national anthem. Wonder if any of your readers remember those days.) My cousin and I got in trouble on more than one occasion for not going to sleep! Midnight seemed like all night! Thanks for the memories!

Don't tell anybody (I have a rock and roll image to maintain), but I like JM too.

Say HI to Buddy from Lady (thump, thump) - he is such a stud.
