Whimsical Wednesdays

I'm calling Wednesday's Whimsical!

I needed to post something whimsy!
Nothing is more whimsy than being picked as
a Beautiful Blogger

I was chosen by

Thank you dear heart!
She is the sweetest gal!

Beautiful Blogger Award?

First off, you all should know I don't win things.  Mostly because I don't try to.  But mostly because I NEVER get picked.

It brings back horrible memories of grammar school.
(you know I'm old when I say "grammar")
Standing in line for basketball, volleyball, soccer, battle ball, softball, knitting class and waiting.  Sweating.  Waiting to hear my name.  Then, me and the girl with the Coke bottle glasses gently smile at each other knowing full well we are in the same category and accepting our demise.  We stand up a bit taller, take a deep breath as her name and mine are called in unison from the opposing captains.  We run towards our team mates as if we were the first ones called.  Do you think I need therapy?

So being that I'm dubbing Wednesdays WHIMSICAL
it is totally appropriate that TODAY I would be chosen for such an honor.

I got choked up when I read Vee's note to me.
I'm a sap, through and through.
I get teary eyed in the card store.
I can't breath when one of my sons tells me I am the most beautiful woman in the whole universe and he wants to marry someone just like me.  
Ok, tears are forming right now.
I can't see.
Hold on.
So here's the other fun part of the award - besides it's my first, and I NEVER get picked for anything:

This is what I have to do:
(and I don't mind at all because I NEVER get picked for anything)

1. Thank and then link to the person that gave you the award
2. Pass this award on to 15 bloggers you've recently discovered
     & whom you think are fantastic
3. Contact said Blogs to let them know they've won
4. State 7 Things about yourself!
In no particular order.....

Seven things:
I'm a songwriter
I'm a late bloomer in every single area of life
Was 35 with my first son & almost 40 with my second (see!)
I pee when I laugh too hard or bend over too quickly
I lived in NYC for many years
 Learned to drive a 5 speed in Manhattan
Artichoke leaves are my favorite veggies

What are some of your whimsies??


  1. Great 7 things! You crack me up!

    I was dying when I read about you 'peeing' your pants - brought back some memories. I myself have done that a time or two. All is takes is a funny joke gone too far, or a really violent sneeze for me! =]

    Glad I could pass the award on to someone so deserving!
