BIG B, little b, What Begins With B?


Good Morning.

Beverly YouWho ,(yes, I understand that her name is really Beverly Dru, but every time I start to write Beverly Dru, I think "You Who" and there you have it. Now I've gotten off track. Don't you all know me well enough by now to know that if I get interrupted (even if it is ME doing the interrupting) that it can take forever to get back on track!

OK, I'll try again.

Good Morning. Beverly YouWho, (yes, I understand that her name is........opps)

Monkey's Are Funny

GOOD MORNING (...almost afternoon at this point) Beverly YouWho is playing a fun game. I left her a comment, she assigned me a letter and then I write 10 things I love that begin with that letter.

AFTER (that would be after, not before) you finish reading my post...without skimming as you may miss something important.....leave me a comment and let me know if you would like for me to assign you a letter. What POWER I will have then! How will I ever decide what letter to assign? Should I put them in a hat and pick one? Should I pick a random one? Should I close my eyes and point to something and use the first letter of that object? Should I play this? Can I handle the stress? What if no one wants to play? What if everyone else has already been given a letter by someone else? What if I do decide what letter to give to someone and lets just say I chose R but then I got a cramp in my finger and accidentally pushed the letter T? Would I quickly send them an email and let them know of the error or should I just have them use T instead? PRESSURE!!

Deep Breath.

Okay....10 Things I Love That Begin With The Letter "B".

1. The Bible......I love the fact that if I have a problem, there is usually an answer in the Bible. Unfortunately, I usually don't know where to find the answer but if I do research, even if I don't find the verse I am looking for , I usually end up feeling better anyway. I'm not very consistent about reading it. I especially like reading verses people leave on their blogs. I copy, in my journal, some of the ones that seem to be speaking directly to me. (My journal is quickly filling up.). Sometimes I like to read the verses in different Bibles to get different perspectives. For instance, reading the King James version is beautiful..BUT I tend to get more out of my study Bible or The Bible for Today's Christian Woman. I love to read so you can add other Books to this answer too.

2. Blogging....gee, I bet that one surprised you!

3. Boys- Specifically my 2. (sons, that is..)

4. Black Clothes....My sis-in-law calls me Morticia ....in a loving way.... I think....

5. Box of Brown Hair Dye- Not that I use it, of course. Not that I have any gray hairs to cover up.....wait a minute...didn't I just do a post (or 2) on Lying this week? OK, Yes, I use it. THERE....Are you happy??? You know the truth!!!! Does that make you feel better?

6. Breathing Apparatus....As in SCBA.....As in Self Contained Breathing Apparatus....As OPPOSED to SCUBA...which is Self Contained UNDERWATER Breathing Apparatus. I don't need the underwater part.... but it would be fun..... hmmm, something to think about. Anyway, I like breathing apparatus. It makes breathing much easier inside a burning building. However, that is the only time I use it. No need to walk around carrying all that extra weight when it isn't necessary.

7. Bricks....as in brick Houses. No, silly. Not Brick House by the Commodores. but actual brick houses. My house isn't even brick but I LOVE dark red brick houses. I think they have a classy, neat, classic look..... hhmmmm ...a classic classy look. I also like to keep a supply of bricks around to repair that wall around me.... you know ...in case it starts to crumble.

8. Bush, as in George and George W.

9. Batteries.....Think Cars, Flashlights, Game-Boys, cameras, cell phones, MP3 or iPods etc. A lot of things we use every day wouldn't work very well without batteries.

10. Bubbles.....if you know me....nuff said.

So there you have it. 10 things that I love that start with the letter B. I'll probably think of something much better after this posts but these are the ones that first came to mind.

If you want to play and haven't already, just send me a comment and let me know you would like a letter. I'll assign you one and then ..... (Talk about POWER!!).....wait...we already went over that.

monkeys are funny........

Greg C said...

At least you didn't list the name Bubu as a favorite. I am with you on Bush. I wouldn't have wanted what he was dealt. I will play along as long as you con't give me the letter X or Z. I don't mind scba's as long as I don't really need one.

The Patterson 5 said...

I did the letter M today! It was kindof fun wasn't it! B was a fun letter! Thanks for sharing! (you do not have to pick a letter for me since I already did M!)

Beverlydru said...

Yooo Hooo! That was yodeled in a sing song voice. Would you believe that is how we greet my LuLu? So that is sort of a family greeting. So now that means you are a family. We are a crazy bunch so you'll fit right in. LOL. The unconditional love is a major bonus.

I love your list. Mortica, huh? That's funny.

Chatty Kelly said...

I have that book. No, not the Bible (well, yes I have that one too, but what I mean is) I have that Dr Seuss book "Big B, little B, what begins with B."

Loves your list, but I don't think I'll play this time.

Yay for George Bush!

Barb said...

REALLY... Who do you write for? You are TOO GOOD to not be professional!

I can hardly wait to read your posts each day

Greg C said...

I posted mine. Kelly should get the letter P for being a party pooper. LOL just kidding Kelly.

Chatty Kelly said...

I am not a party pooper GREG! I am a recovering control freak and have a strong desire to pick my own letter. No one is going to tell me what letter I have to do. LOL.

Okay, give me a darn letter. No freaky letters (Q, Z, X).

Edie said...

I'm so glad you got back on track. I love #6 & 10.
As I said once before...
Step away from the bricks and mortar! :)

I already have a letter assigned to me, sorry to take away your power.

CK - I love your enthusiasm. LOL! :D

Mocha with Linda said...

I did this last week with the letter N.

Loved your list, especially #1, 2, & 8.

My ADHD Me said...

The People Have Spoken....

I saw CK today and her letter is
"L".

Hey CK...Life, Love and Laughter are WAY too obvious!

Amber. said...

Oooh Ooh! Pick me! I need a letter! =]

HisPrincess said...

I'd love to play, although I'm with Greg on the letters X or Z.

Vashti said...

So funny...I also stopped by Kellys blog and read her list.....so hit me up with a letter and I'll play too.

(Love that Seuss guy!!)

Irritable Mother said...

You always, always make me laugh. I'm assigning myslef the letter "Y" - for "you".

I love you.

It is hard me find the verses I want for a particular problem I may be facing if I am not reading the Bible regularly at other times. But if I read it regularly, then the verses I need come to mind.

I usually don't remember where I read it though, and this is where a concordance helps me. If I can remember certain words and phrases from the part I am looking for, I can use that word or phrase to find it with a concordance or a Bible software program.

I think it is important for me to read the Bible with an attitude of belief. As I point out in my blog, we need God's help to correctly understand the Bible, and I think God gives that help to those who are willing to believe what He says more than their own opinions or tradtions.

Bugs Bunny would have loved your B post...

Hey, I was thinking of you the other day. I watched the movie "Fireproof" with Kirk Cameron and was wondering if you saw it. I think you would like it and I don't even know what you would like but I think you would like it.

Edie said...

Just stopping by to say Hi!

Beverlydru said...

You have been collecting alot of awards lately, but I did give you a "Friends" award today. I liked the little button too- looks like Valentines. (A little early) I miss those little cartoon valentines we used to help our kids with. I think I might just buy some for the big kid around here. !(Um- that would be me!)MAybe they have fire trucks.

Chatty Kelly said...

An award - they like you, they really like you! ;-)
