100 Things You Didn't Know About Me

Warning, I dont know when my computer is going to go down for the last time.  Very soon, methinks.  I turned it on and the display was all weird and my sound is gone.  It is in its last death throes and then I will have to find the means to put it in the shop for a while, so if you come here and I havent been around, that could be why.


Hmmm.Abby Normal wants a new poll, Ashley wants trafficI want to make my blog worth taking the time to visit especially since I do seem to be picking up a little steam.  A new poll will take a little thinking.


Oh, before I forget, I need to ask someone, is it true that after you have made 100 blog entries you are supposed to do one that is 100 Things You Didnt Know About Me?  I mean, I have passed that point a while ago.  This entry appears to be number 118.  Then when do you have to do it again, at 200?  Why not 265?  265 MORE things you didnt know about me???  Believe me, fans, friends, fiends, foes, blogophiles and just plain folks; you do NOT want to know 365 things about me.  Well, I guess I could start a little thing on the side that would have a different factoid about me every day.


For instance, lets see, Okay, let me try this.  Since Im doing it in Word I can just highlight and delete it if it sounds stupid.  Or just leave it up and give everyone something to laugh at.

Daveman, What about "The Mysterious Fox of Fox Hollow?" I love, little baby ducks, old pickup trucks, slow-movin' trains and rain...

Abby, we could start a community blog and call it that.

Louis is great and is often overlooked in the writing community.

You would have a blast reading "Hank the Cowdog" to your boys.

I've actually read some Louis L'Amour. My husband's a fan, so I read a couple of his recommendations. I liked them, suffice it to say, probably because I lived in Utah for a couple of years!

Hey, maybe we could start a "TV and Hollyweird Hater's Club"!

PS - I havent heard the mans songs in years.
June 26, 2005   10:22 AM PDT
Did I actually hear you say you liked TOM T HALL!?

AWESOME! His story teller status was/is the best among the best.

"... i remember the year, clayton dulaney he died.."

"... old dogs and children and water mellon wine..."
