Been gone so long...

At first because nothing much was happening, and I couldn't think of anything to write about. Then because there was too much to write about, and no time to do it anyway. So today I'm going to jump back in with a couple of memes.

First something Straight Out Of The Camera.

This is Miss Chloe yesterday while she and Caitlyn were here. She found gloves in her drawer.

And now a little fun from Sunday Stealing.

1. What is your middle name? Louise, after a great aunt on my father's side.

2. How old are you? 52 (Recently, I've actually been thinking I was 54, until my husband set me straight the other day...sweet man!)

3. Where are you from? Are you living there right now? Texas...I live about 3 hours from my hometown.

4. Is it cold where you are? HA! It's already in the nineties regularly! Summer, please be mild!

5. What's the time? 3:31 p.m.

6. What are you wearing? Cheeky question! Jeans/ uniform.

7. What was the last thing you listened to? Radio in the car. Switching between NPR and a mix station.

8. What was the last thing you ate? A Ding-Dong...(my boss saw the box in my office last week, and told me that I shouldn't eat them out of professional courtesy. Arr-arr.)

9. What was the last thing you watched on TV? At this moment, I'm watching The Man From Snowy River.

10. What's your favorite TV show and why? Medium...well written, and the characters look like an ordinary family, not a movie-star-pretty family.

11. Quick! Find a book or something with text on it! Flip to a random page, and post the second paragraph's first sentence. Ted's vanity, which was extended to his fleetness of foot, compelled him to believe that, even from a standing start, he could have outrun Mrs. Vaughn in her Lincoln....from A Widow For One Year by John Irving. (Finally finished! See opinion on my Reading List.)

12. What was the last movie you saw? How was it? Like at the theater? I can't even recall what/when it was much less how it was!

13. Do YOU think you have an accent? Where in your country do people speak with strong accents? Many areas of the US have distinctive accents...Texas taking its place in that group. I do have a southern accent, but it is strongest when I'm angry. Usually strangers think I sound like I'm from the Midwest...which I attribute to both of my parents being from the Midwest and to my being part of the television generation where the only people with strong accents seem to be the subject of ridicule.

Okay, that's it. I'll try to be a better blogger.


  1. Thanks D'dubsters! Thanks for dropping by. Your zoo photos were great too...sweet family!

  2. Love Miss Chloe. She's so darn cute!!
    Enjoyed reading your info too..

  3. Hi Patti, thanks for dropping by and commenting. Your blog is awesome!

  4. Ah, there you are back again - was wondering where you'd popped off to! Like your meme, I might well join in x

  5. Life can get like that sometimes. I get busy and don't blog and yup, I have time to blog and don't have anything to blog about. Go figure!
    Keep on blogging though, we'd miss ya if you didn't!

    Cheers - Joolz

  6. Caroline & Joolz...thanks for not giving up on me! :)

  7. Adorable picture!

    Louise is the most popular middle name here for people 25-60

    You were a very young granny! LOL I know people who became mummy's at 45-50!!

    The accent thing is neat! Everywhere I go people think I have an accent, over here I get asked if I'm a quiet American (yes, seriously) or Australian. In North America I get asked where I'm from in England or Ireland! Not many people I know linguistically don't fit in anywhere...poor me :( lol

    I so want to visit Texas! I think I'd love it!!! lol
