An Award and a Meme

Thanks, Julie, for the Thank You award!

It's my first ever recognition, and I would like to thank the little people:

Julie was also kind enough to tag me for the alphabet meme. The idea is to use the letters of the alphabet to describe yourself kindly. So, I'll give it a try. You don't mind if I sing while I'm doing this, do you? I find it necessary to sing if I want the letters in order (which was how I developed the amazing talent of singing under my breath when I was a library assistant in Junior High School and later in college). Anyway, here goes.




Dog lover



Game player (scrabble, gin rummy, dominoes)





Lover /loyal / lesbian

Morning person

News hound



Quick (witted and tempered--but I cool down quickly)


Sensual / short / silly




Well read / writer


Yellow dog democrat


I'm not going to tag anybody, but I'd love for some of ya'll to play along!

I love your alphabet list.

But you know what immediately enamored me of your blog? Immediately?

This line in your profile:

"I am a happy woman."

That's almost a sin to admit to these days. And your "sin" of self-aware happiness is infinitely refreshing.

I love that word ZAFTIG. It is a great word!

And as a fellow "Library Club" member, I also love your list.

"Game player (scrabble, gin rummy, dominoes)"

Just as long as we're talking about those kind of games. ;)

I used to make alphabet lists, when I swam laps at the Y. This was before waterproof mp3 players, it made a monotonous activity, pass quickly.

Hi - This is my first visit to your Blog, but I've bookmarked it for easy return when time permits. I'm a dog-lover myself. Had two Beagles in my 20s and live with a Yellow Lab (who's almost entirely white) these days ... with a few "mutts" in between :)

I enjoyed your alphabet list and may give it a go sometime soon on one of my Blogs. It's nice to meet you.
Hugs and blessings,

Hey! Found you through Julie's blog. Nice to meet another Texan (I'm in Austin).

But I'm a little annoyed that you took my Z word. Hope you don't mind if I use it anyway!

When Mrs. Chicky gets better I'm sure she'll get her Dog Gone Blog going again and it is a fun spot.

Great list, you are welcome, and AWESOME list.


I love it.

Yay, Zaftig! Boo, skinny-minnies! But... what's a yellow dog democrat?

Ah, I just know you were a Yellow Dog Democrat.

(BFC: A Yellow Dog Dem is a uniquely Southern term...I think it references someone who would vote for a yellow dog before they voted for a Republican.)
