Back for an Award

I've had to be away for a while.  I didn't go anywhere.  I just wasn't able to be here.  Well, I did go visit my parents' for Memorial Day weekend.  There was fishing and barbecueing and swimming...all that good stuff.  My birthday is next Tuesday, and I'm trying to get some of them to come to my house for my birthday.  My brother couldn't believe I was planning my own birthday party.  Of course, I asked who else was gonna do it?  No volunteers.  So I told everyone to bring their own meat for the grill.  I'll set up a volley ball net.  I have a pool.  We might play some horse shoes.  And we will grill out!  I'm just not sure if I should buy my birthday cake, or make it myself.  I haven't been using my camera lately.  So I have no new pics to share.  But I did get an award while I was away. My dear pole dancing friend Penny over at The Hen House gave me the versatile blog award.  Thank you so much Penny!

That means I have to share about myself...again!  Hmmm....let me think. 

*I love to sing, but I sound like a dying mule.

*My biggest regret in life is not going to med school.  I was a biology/pre-med major when I first started college.

*I have two brothers, and all three of us served in the military, but are no longer in.  Me and one brother went to Iraq.  My other brother went to Afghanistan.

*I'm growing tobacco in my garden by accident.  A friend brought over a tray of seedlings he thought was collards, so I planted them.  He found them on the side of the road.  I soon found out that it was really toabacco. 
*My driver license has an address I haven't lived at in four years.
*I recently got two fortunes from Chinese fortune cookies.  One said, "God will give you everything you want."  The other said, "Your income will increase."  Neither one has happened.

Sometimes I pass these awards on, but I really hate to do that.  How can I pick a few out of the blogs I read?  I read them cause I enjoy them!  So I am sending this award to all of you who read my blog and have not received it yet.  Have a great day, and see ya around!

My birthday is two days after yours, but I've had many more birthdays than you. We want photo's of the party.

I hope your fishing was better than ours. We caught 3 fish and I forgot to take pictures. Oops.

But then I haven't finished going through and uploading the 200 plus I took on vacation...

And I still need to do this award thingy. ugh. Will try to do better. :)

Hope you have a great birthday! ♥

Have really missed you! Have a wonderful birthday & party, if you were nearer Mam would have definitely made your cake!! xxx

farmlady said...

Glad you're back! Happy Birthday and if I had the time I would bake you a cake, sweetie....but you do what you have the energy for. Homemade is usually better, but store bought is good two and one less thing to do.
Just be sure to have them put your name on it.

Yes, you should make your own cake. People usually like homemade better.Sounds like a fun time....if we were closer, we would CRASH it! Kidding....

Congrats on your award. Not a thing wrong with planning a party on your birthday. It's a good day to spend with family and friends. Wish I could be there. We'd have a blast. Hope you have a good day. Becca

I do love these awards because it tells us something about you that we may not find out otherwise!! I know it's hard to pass on these awards--I really enjoy reading blogs--They are all so different and give a view of people and their lives, which I really love!!

By the way, Lovettsville is not far from Martinsburg West VA--Just over an hour. We have some good friends that live over there (they have since 1961) and we love going over and having lunch with them about once a month. We love the orchards over there too--It's all good in that direction!!! :-)))

Whatever you do, don't get one of those ice cream cakes from Baskin Robbins -- maybe those maddening commercials will stop if we all boycott!

You sound sad, Randy. I hope everything is okay, or okay enough.

Congrats on your award!
