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

An Award...

passed to me from A Quiet Corner. I humbly accept and think I am supposed to write eight things about myself.
So look out...eight things you may or may not have guessed about me coming right up. I kinda took clues from A Quiet Corner's Eight.

1.  Do not like hot dry weather, at all.

2.  Like things in order but not too worried if it's not.  It will be eventually.

3.  Thinking about shaving my head since I'm retiring.  I said, THINKING. I imagine I will just cut it shorter.  I have never been a hair person, if it's too short to braid then it's gone.

4.  Been blogging since September '08 and have written 1737 posts on this blog.   My second blog is about animals called Familiar Spirit.

5.  I like to play with words, paints, cloth, wood and animals.

6.  I have a strange almost dark sense of humor.

7.  I am rather independent and dislike asking for help.

8.  The world of blogging has put me in touch with so many amazing wonderful supportive loving people.  I can't imagine how I ever did without y'all.

Thank you for the honor of this award.  Everyone reading this deserves it so grab the picture and do your thing.  Have fun with it!

Shaving your head might be the thing to do on your last USPS day . . . which is today isn't it?

I grew out my hair this summer so that I could put it in a pony tail..it's kinda short and looks kinda stupid, but it is OFF MY NECK!!!!!!

Laurel's Quill said...

Laurel's Quill said...

Neat Gail!!

I feel exactly the way you do, on all. ( save #3 am a hairdresser #7 I rather like asking for help, when I truly need it...because I *l*o*v*e to help others, a.d wouldn't begrudge someone the gift if giving )
And started blogging at the same time too.

Be well!!

I'm into pony tails right now for some reason, but go for the shave...it's got to be cool and so much easier to deal with!

There were a number of those things that I can relate to, especially the playing with animals. As I write this I have my entourage of four animals with me in the room :)

Shave your head? Now THAT should be a blog post!

Congrats on your retirement. Something tells me that you will NEVER be bored at home!

I keep thinking I'm going to cut my hair. But I just keep putting it up instead.

Have a wonderful evening, Gail!

Congrats on the award ! As for the hair what ever floats your boat I say ! Myself I have always had medium to long hair and just put it in a pony tail . You know we are a lot alike in the humor department can be a bit twisted sister lol I to don't like to ask for help either but like to try to help others if they need it . Blog land has given me so many wonderful friends through it ! Like you . Have a great day !
