a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Old Baggs and Witches...

both think I'm special!  I was awarded by both ladies and am deeply honored. Linda and Tamara are both very unique talented ladies that I am very proud to have met through the wondrous world of blogdom.  The blogs linked to above are interesting, funny, informative and never, ever boring, so drop by and tell them Gail sent you.

I am supposed to tell three things about myself...if I remember correctly, and then pass the award to more well-deserving bloggers.  Not to sound conceited, but all blogs I read are well deserving of this award so pick it up and run with it and my blessing.

Three things, mmmm, what have I not told about my strange and varied life?   This is the difficult part...three things you don't know about me...I have told all my deep dark secrets, you have seen me in underwear, you have listened to me complain...there is not much left to reveal.

One...I use to dream of being a published author.  I guess, in a way, I am...I blog.

Two...I put lotion on my feet, at night, every night, before I go to bed.  This strange habit began when I was in labor with my first child and has continued non-stop for thirty-eight years.  That's a lot of lotion.

Three...I have absolutely no patience with liars or with being called a liar.  That pretty much rules out any relationships with politicians.  I guess that is because of my raising.  Dad would never tolerate a lie, said there was never a reason to lie...and also taught me, a person's word is his bond.

...and I am adding a fourth.  I enjoy a variety of people.  I am very open minded to other life styles and belief systems.  I  love to laugh and make people laugh. I do lean toward dark humor...if you haven't noticed that already.

Oh, and if you have any questions, no matter how strange you may think they are, ASK THEM!  I think this would a great way to know each other better.  When I answer your questions, I will link back to your blog and the world will become even smaller as we meet new friends.

I should put lotion on my feet every night--trust me. My feet need some special treatment.

I do the lotion thing...but every night takes an incredible amount of determination;)) Don't know if I have it in me:))

Thank you for your comment on my blog this morning Gail. Good to know I'm not hanging out there by myself regarding bad habits. ;)

Well I wish I could remember to put lotion on my feet every night. As it is, I consider myself lucky to remember to change into my jammies before my head hits the pillow.

You are welcome ((Hugs)) :) I make my own stuff to put on my feet at night...I have a thing with feet...they totally gross me out. I can't touch anyone's else feet. lol I take a clean small sterilized jar (the jar minced garlic comes in is perfect or a baby food jar) and glop vaseline into it, then I put 10 to 15 drops of Tea Tree Oil in the vaseline and stir it up. It makes your feet so nice and soft. I also put on clean socks right after, but it's not long before they come back off again after i get into bed. lol

I see that everyone is zoning in on the whole "38 years of putting lotion on your feet every night" business. Well, that IS pretty impressive. Your feet must be as soft as, well, a baby's BUTT, I guess. My husband would rather sleep with you, than me, any day. Wait. That came out wrong. Let's just say he'd wish I had softer feet, okay?

I have a question. What kind of life had you imagined for yourself before you ended up on your very cool farm?

And would you trade it now?

=)

PS. I liked reading your 3...no, 4 things we didn't know. I think I'm going to adopt #2. My feet are getting dry as corn husks in my old age.

Sue said...

One more PS. Has the daily lotion made a difference? Are your heels as soft as flowery petals in the spring?

;)

I am the very same way about liars and about being accused of telling a lie.

Congrats on your award!
