One Lovely Blog Award

 I received the lovely blog award you will see on my sidebar as well as below. It was a gift from Sandie  here
I want to thank Sandie for her thoughtfulness. I was tickled pink to receive this award. It has taken me a long time to learn to post buttons on my blog but I am getting the hang of it. I am sharing this with some fantastic bloggers here and they are listed in not any particular order. I am honored to have received this award and wish to share it. Please pass it along to 7 other blog buddies and please list 7 things we don't know about you. Finally make sure you link back to the person who gave you the award. Simple rules, sweet award.

1. I was a single parent before I was a married parent.

2. I met the Monkees at their hotel during the Colorado State Fair in the late 1960s. My friend and I baked them a cake.

3. I rooted for the New York Yankees at a baseball game in 1980 at the California Angels home field!

4. I had lunch with Mindi Abair, (one of two female saxaphonists in the world) along with my husband in 2007. She signed a copy of one of her CDs for us.

5. I had two canaries growing up named Elmer and Oliver and they lived into old age.

6. My friend Lynette and I kidnapped another girl in our neighborhood because she was invited to a birthday party and we weren't when we were 10! We got into a mess of trouble over that and Carol Ann hates us even today!

7. I watched my grandson Colton being born and I nearly flattened my son-in-law who complained throughout the whole night that he was "tired" while my daughter was in labor for about 14 hours! I went to the nursery with my grandson to get oxygen for him because he was a blue baby! My daughter still smokes! Argh...

Hey you - are are good at all the buttons and whistles. And you have a great blog. A real sweetheart.

Oh my gosh I loved the Monkees too - Davy Jones was my favorite.

I was with my daughter when my GS was born and it was wonderful!

Great job.

Hi Anne Sweetie...
Oh My Goodness, no wonder you loved my monkee post so much. I brought back some memories for you. I just love it.

Oh Anne you rebel. You have traumatized Carol Ann for life. Ha! Ha! Ha! I bet nobody forgot to invite you and Lynette to a party again. Oh that just tickles me to pieces. It sounds like something I might would have done. I bet you got a tanning over that one.

Love this post sweet friend. I just love it. Thank you for making me smile this evening. What a 2nd day of work. Exhausted, and am off to bed.

Love you sweet friend. Country hugs, Sherry

Thank you so much for the passing this sweet award on to CollectInTexas Gal. I'll be happy to post it on my sidebar. I've been out of the loop alot this summer and haven't visited much. I've missed everyone, and will get back into the groove when the Grands get back to school. Thanks again...Sue

You are a most deserving award recipient!!


Here we come, walkin' down the street. We get the funniest looks from ev'ry one we meet. Hey, hey, we're the Monkees! And people say we monkey around. But we're too busy singing! To put anybody down....

we kidnapped a friend on her birthday, her husband was in on it, she had to leave her purse and phone behind...(she needed it) I think she was near heart failure!

Jules said...

Ooooh you lucky lady! Getting to meet the Monkees!! My sister and I saw them in Sarasota in 1985 during their 25th Anniversary Tour.
