Christmas Funnies….

Thoughtful Readers…

It is that time of year again. That’s right, the time for introspection and giving freely, of your time and your wealth (if you have any left…). Let me say…….I love Christmas. I love the season and the holiday atmosphere. I love the kinder, gentler attitudes I see while I am ‘out and about’ doing whatever it is that I think needs doing at that moment. And, I love the reason we celebrate. But, you don’t have to believe in God to enjoy Christmas. It is there for all to see.

With that in mind, I have decided to post some of my favorite Christmas “funnies.” I hope they lighten your day and provide a laugh for you.

I have just received the news that Ms. Marilyn has another blog post ready for our enjoyment. If you recall, Marilyn wrote about her aunt…”Diamond Lil..”. This one is a little more introspective and well……personal. I was really taken with the sentiment and her ability to express it, to invite you in to the story. I hope you enjoy this one as much as you did the first one. Should be ready…..probably tomorrow.

Be well,

Howard

One Lovely Blog Award

One Lovely Blog Award

Thoughtful Reader…

I recently received this award from a fellow blogger who deemed my work to be worthy of at least a second glance. I am honored to receive it…..and even more honored to pass it on to others who deserve the recognition. I would like to say “thank you” to mixedupmeme who honored me with this, although I can’t for the life of me understand the logic. Please take a moment and visit her blog. You will find it refreshingly upbeat, intelligently written, and full of whimsy, rhyme, and sharp-edged wit. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

In the spirit of the award, there have to be some rules. Not many, but some…

So, as stated by the rules (my understanding..??), I am supposed to post seven interesting things about myself. Then award other bloggers who I feel deserve this honor. The last part will be easy. The first part, not so much so.

So, here are some interesting factoids about me…

1) I have a niece who is older than I am…

2) I went to work in the agricultural fields before I was in high school…

3) I went to no less than 18 different schools before graduating from high school…

4) I barely escaped drowning in the surf when I was eighteen…

5) I purchased an airplane before I knew how to fly one…

6) I flew a border mission in Germany before the wall came down…

7) I was kicked out of Maxim’s in Paris (back when Maxim’s was THE place on the Champs-Elysees..)…

8) I have lived in seven states…

9) I prefer Mac computers (but I don’t own one..)…

10) I prefer the Iphone (but I don’t own one of those either..)…

Now for the fun part…!!!

I am going to recommend the following blogs and send this award their way…

  • tryingtowriteit is an amazing collection of stuff from a British lady who is close to publishing a major work. Truth be told, I spend too much time on her blog. Stop by this one and settle in for a while.
  • Miss Tanya Jean is the first blog I followed when I started this exploration. I thought she wrote with a certain flair…and I still think so.
  • Privypeeps is a blog written by a lady from India. Tanushree writes in English and handles the language extremely well for a non-native speaker. I know how tough English can be–so I respect her greatly for doing what she is doing. Good solid attempts.
  • Clotildajamcracker has become another of my favorite blogs. She writes with so much imagination and tongue-in-cheek humor….It is almost impossible to stop reading. She very possibly has already received this award…but that’s okay. Now she has another one.!!
  • Brautigan’s Girl is my last recipient. This is very probably my favorite “Long Read.” Terrii writes fiction and handles character development extremely well. If you like fiction and are willing to suspend disbelief for a short time, PLEASE check this one out.
