I've Been Labeled!!

I've been labeled..... Which, in my Thesaurus is another word for Tagged.

You see, it really was no miracle what happened was just this (opps, thought I was back in Kansas with my friend Dorothy for a moment. ANYWAY, Samurai's Dojo and I were playing a friendly game of Tag. Everything was going fine when he reached out to tag me. It was obvious that he missed me by a mile but he kept insisting that he had gotten me and that I was "It". I was going to argue the point with him and insist he realize that there was absolutely no way he could have tagged me, BUT, it was just his word against mine. No one else saw it. The consequences of an argument could have been ugly as he has a Sword and I have an Ax. SO, after just a split second pause, I took the high road and conceded.
(Just so He knows, that I know)

1. Why did you start blogging?

Chatty Kelly and Sue J were doing it and both of them insisted I would like it. I actually didn't think I would stick to it. I was thinking that I would not have anything to write. But, even though I was correct in my thoughts, somehow words ended up on the screen. A few of them even made sense! I NEVER expected to have over 2 followers (Chatty Kelly and Sue J).

2. If you could travel anywhere in the world with no restriction of costs, where would it be and why?

At this moment, the moon would be nice because there isn't any gravity and I could get around without wearing my back brace.

3. Did you have a teacher in school that had a great influence on your life? If so, what?

School, er, um, well, um, I never liked school. I was so difficult to stay focused. There wasn't a diagnosis for ADHD. Every year I would start off with such high hopes and expectations. New notebooks, binder, a place for everything. Somehow by the end of week one there would be probably 20 balled up half written pages of notes I had taken in class. I no idea how to study and no guidance at home. As a result, I ended up being that kid that sits in the back of the room, doodleing in my notebook and just getting by by the skin of my teeth. SO, unfortunately, No, I didn't. Oh, and speaking of "getting by, by the skin of my teeth".....

Do your teeth have skin? I don't think mine do. Shouldn't the saying be, "By the enamel on my teeth"? Just a thought.

oops....Monkeys Are Funny.

4. If you could spend the day with a famous person, who would it be, and what would you do?

A retired soldier. No specific one. Hopefully we would sit outside (it would be a nice breezy day), we would drink lemonade, well, one glass of lemonade but then I would probably switch to Diet Coke. He would probably have Rum and Coke after his glass of Lemonade. We would spend the day with him telling me his stories. I would NOT interrupt him (hey, it's my fantasy), but I would give him 110%. I would ask questions though. His stories would be so vivid that I would be able to picture them in my head.

5. Toilet paper - over or under?

Going on a Lion Hunt. I'm not afraid. LOOK! Over there! A big, dark cave! Can't go over it. Can't go under it. Can't go around it. I'll have to go through it.
Oh, Ah, Where were we.....Oh yeah, OVER. Always over.

6. Name one thing in your life that you would do over if possible.

Just one!?! Hmmm, well there are many. One of the top 5 would be that I would not have been such a push-over with my kids.

7. Tell about your pets - if any.

Victoria-Old English Sheepdog when I was a kid.
Liz- Black Lab we got for JM when he was about 8 years old.
Sydney- Black Lab we got after Liz passed away.

Whew, Aren't you glad to finally know that!

8. Do you live in a small town or a large town. (You don't have to name the town

The county I live in was more "country like" when we moved here 19 years ago. It has grown SO much! I don't mean New York City like (or anything close) but it is growing and growing. And I told 2 friend and they told 2 friends and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on.....

Wonder why my print changed? I didn't do it.....on purpose. I'm afraid to try to change anything as I could end up erasing my entire blog and maybe half the blogospere too. (OK, that was a little bit extreme)

Well, that's all. I'm supposed to tag 5 more people but I'm tired and shouldn't be running around in a back brace anyway. SO, if you want to, consider yourself LABELED!! In other words...."You're IT!"

"To da moon!!!"....wish I could....just for a little while, anyway. Lack of gravity might make it difficult to type funny material.

It has 'pest' in it. Don't like it!

I sure do feel a whole lot more like I do right now, then I did a little while ago.

You're so funny.

The font changed because you stopped being linked to ? You're not really linked to anything but the first half of your post acts like a link that doesn't go anywhere when you click it. Wish I had your skills. My links always make people who click them leave. :)

1 - I remember the first time I read your blog. Had to go back and read 3 previous posts just to catch up with the story. And I loved every bit!

2 - LOL! I'm sorry.

3 - Sounds like my granddaughter Word Girl. I am sure she has ADHD but her mom hasn't had her tested.

4 - This one really made me laugh when I thought of the retired soldiers I know. Lets just say that's not how the day would go. LOL!

5 - Over is the ONLY RIGHT way! Under makes no sense at all.

7 - I've been meaning to ask you that very question.

I will leave you with this thought... ...plobnogi
LOL! Now that's a fun word!

Hello,Its good to see you have kept you sense of humor after having back surgery. Sorry I haven't been here to visit very often, we have been busy pic-kn' and grinning. Its raining today, so I get to visit.
I can relate to you about the #3. whole school thing, but my problem was I would go home thinking I was doing A+ work but in reality I was doing D- work. School was so degrading.

Over. Yes. Always over. Otherwise it drags along the wall and who wants to, um, you know...wipe...with paper that has dragged along a wall. Doesn't that bug everyone in the world? Well. It should.

I know the one about the bear hunt, too. Why is it we know all the same tunes and other ditties?

Do you know the one about "Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side, keep on the sunny side of life (whirr, bang!) You will feel no pain as we drive you insane, if you keep on the sunny side of life.
