One of the (many) cool things about blogging is when people read and comment on what you have to say.....as if you've made some sort of....connection, with your audience.
What's even cooler is when someone thinks your blog is deserving of praise and/or accolades.
So, imagine my surprise when my blogger pal jaybird (you all do know jaybird....right?), over at The Bird's Nest, graciously bestowed upon me and my humble little blog, the Reality Award.
Now, I think the way this one goes is that I'm supposed to answer a few questions and pass it on to three others I think are deserving....which isn't going to be easy as I follow a ton of great blogs.
So, on to the questions....
If you could change on thing, what would it be?
I would have scrounged some money together to invest in a little company called Microsoft when it first went public, back in 1986 (the year I graduated high school).....at like $21.00 a share!
If you could repeat an age, what would it be?
I could say something like "I hate repeating myself.", but that's totally not true. Anyone who knows me and has heard my jokes can attest to that. Still, though, I think I'd have to say my early 20s, where I would have finished college.
What one thing really scares you?
Flying in an airplane. I get nervous just going to the airport to pick up/drop off people. Truth.
If you could be someone else for a day, who would it be?
Indiana Jones, because I hate snakes and Nazis too!
O.k, for the three people I'm choosing for this one, I'll go with....
1. Elise Fallson-- Funny, a bit silly (in a good way), and passionate about writing.
2. Sydney Aaliyah-- A great blogger with a superb sense of community.
3. Celeste Holloway-- Always upbeat and positive and a real pleasure to read.
I always look forward to updates from these three ladies as well as the comments they leave. If you're not familiar with them, already, then do yourself a huge favor and check them out...I promise you won't be disappointed.
Thanks, again, to jaybird for thinking of me...I really appreciate it!
For my Music Monday offering, today, I'm going with a suggestion from a comment last Monday via Celeste Holloway ( what are you waiting for? check out her blog, already!). Celeste mentioned The Oak Ridge Boys, who also happen to be one of my all time favorite country groups.
Way back in the day...in my early teens...I was a huge country music fan. While the genre has gone through a few changes today, back then it was all about twangy, steel guitars and great harmonies. I remember, literally, wearing out the Oak's 'Greatest Hits' cassette when I was young.
This, above them all, is my favorite song of theirs.... Y'all Come Back Saloon
Have a great Monday and, if you can't...don't worry, it'll be over soon :)
