The first award You Rock! came from Jules at Trying to Get Over the Rainbow. SHE rocks. I just want you to know this. And I love the title of her blog because I always feel like a Dorothy trying to get over my rainbow to find my gold, and to enjoy that gold. Her title has helped me think (I know, I know more thinking) that my pot of gold is right here where I exist--right in this moment and I need to stop trying to find my rainbow because I have been living it. Now, isn't that a Dorothy moment if you ever heard one? Thank you, Jules.
At The Farm: Creative Blog Award. I love being called creative, but SHE is creative. She created her own award, and I am 99% sure she took this photo. Her blog is full of creative photography and writing. The vibe I get from Gail is her love and respect for animalkind. I've told you this before, but she takes in dogs in need when she can. I get my fix of horse, dog and cat love when I visit. Thank you, Gail.
If you haven't visited you must do so and join their parties.
I played this weekend at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO. The weather was so perfect, I looked around to make sure I wasn't in heaven, but then saw all the stupid people and decided I wasn't. What? You think there will be people in heaven. Yes, but not stupid people...right? Right?
The welcome committee at the SDC entrance. Does anyone else see the spooky Santa lurking in the bush? I swear I didn't see him when I was there. I hope this doesn't give
me you nightmares. I can't wait for my son and daughter to see this photo. That's all I'm saying. It has something to do with Santas, Clowns, Easter Bunnies, and/or statues with vacant eyes...and crying. That's all I'm saying...really.
I've been visiting SDC for over 30 years and will post on my rural blog soon about this experience. It is a wonderful place to visit, but a place typical of Missouri--the hills. I got a good workout.
I told my daughter when I become a zillionaire I would buy SDC and kick everyone out and live there. She said that would be terrible and she wouldn't let me do that. I told her she couldn't stop me. She said she would have to make more money than I did and stop me. I told her the only way she could stop me was if she had me committed. Then I thought about this. She's a psychologist. She knows how to do these things. I might rethink my venture.
Yes, that is a new photo of me (at the top of the page) and I predict (if I know myself) will come down in 2.5 days because I hate me in photos. The last one I put up looked like I was an Avatar woman. This one isn't any better.
What's not to like about the life of a bed bug? They travel. They eat all they want. They don't have to worry about enemies who can kill them.
Do you have a favorite place to visit? What does it do for you?
