Yesterday I recieved  not one, but two count'em, 2, blog awards! The first was from our friend Keith, A.K.A. Monkey-Man. which is pretty cool because I really like his blog and I think he's a talented writer. He didn't have a clue that I was having a really bad day yesterday and his timing was perfect. Then, Patty,at Calm Acceptance ,who did know how I was feeling yesterday sent me some more love and another award! Isn't blogging the coolest?! I mean really, this group of people out here in cyberspace is so important to me sometimes. It means so much that you guys are out there reading whatever I write and take the time to comment and share. It's a very cool thing. I was feeling so depressed yesterday, just super down and there you guys were. It's simple stuff, these little awards, but they do feel great to get and I appreciate them very much.
Keith's award requires seven things you don't know about me. ( after all the crap I write , I wonder if there's anything left! Jeez!) So I'll start there.

  1. I was married to Patty's brother for 10 years. We met in AA. He was sober for over a year and going against his sponsor's advice, he asked me out when I had 7 months sober. Everybody told us not to get married.  We married a year later. He is a good guy and was a good step dad to Annie. I also think we did a good job staying married for ten years considering how much we had to learn. Life's a funny thing. I'm glad Patty is my almost relative and is part of my life. Annie loved her very much too. Patty introduced me to blogging which has really turned into something very, very important for me. Thanks Girlfriend.
  2. When I was working as a counselor, I would have to hide my motorcycle helmet in a tote bag when I went to work so the clients wouldn't see it because my helmet stickers were inappropriate to say the least. I would also start my Sportster up when I left right under the group rooms of one of my co-workers when I would leave. I had drags on it. It was brappy loud and it would seriously piss her off. Hee hee. I couldn't stand her. I know, some of us are sicker than others.
  3. I haven't' changed the pipes on the new bike yet because it voids the HD warranty if you don't have them do it, which is pricey. My old bike was so loud it rattled the windows. This one is stock and you know what? I kinda like it. Hmmm...
  4. I'm too fat for my chaps.
  5. I believe in ghosts and have had many paranormal experiences throughout my life.
  6. I'm really good at knowing if someone is lying. You can't bullshit a bullshitter. 
  7. I used to love to dance and always was the first person on the dance floor. I didn't care if you were looking at me, but ever since Annie died, I rarely feel like it anymore and that makes me sad. I can't make myself feel like it either. It was a form of self expression I can't explain.
Now to pass these on. First, From me to You goes to Patty. Just sending some love back to you because your comment meant more to me than you know. Thank you. And the other goes back to Monkey-Man Keith, for the exact same reason. Thank you so much.

"One Lovely Blog"? The guys are going to start to talk about me behind my back.

Seriously? Thanks. Any recognition is appreciated since I am an attention whore. I will also go check out Patty now that we have you in common. She has to be cool.

On your blog, instead of the "you can't bullshit a bullshitter", my father used to say "you can't shit an old turd." It played to my sick and twisted sense. Happy T-Day.

I had no idea you would be so lifted up by such a little gesture. You made my day! So do I have to tell seven things about me that no one knows too? Hmmm, I'll have to think hard on that one!

You deserve the boost, girlfriend. Whatever form it takes, life is smiling on you. I am hugging you from California.

I love the comments, I learn so much. Makes me wonder about the ones who never comment. What's up with that?! This is an interactive deal, don't they know?

Your comment about the clothes made me want to hug you and ride around on the Harley with you. After I put on a helmet, and cover myself in bubble wrap...

big Jenn said...

Lou,I think that you need lots of bubble wrap so you won't look so thin next to my much larger self. Really good idea! :)jeNN

You all just most certainly rock! I love the awards, they just make a day, a week, a month! I think you deserve many more!!!

I loved your seven items too! The helmet one cracked me up, I had a dream yesterday about putting up all my bumper stickers on my car to piss off all my conservative work partners...I still may!

With love,

Congratulations on your awards. You deserve all good things. I like what you wrote about not bullshitting a bullshitter. How true that is.
