I can't believe the response on that dang meme!!!!

Y'all are too kind!!!! I haven't done anything anyone else wouldn't do -- then again maybe I did -- so I guess I should say that what I did was right for me instead. It wasn't always easy and it wasn't always fun but I learned a lot -- like how to laugh through my tears. I have to give credit to a lot of good people who helped me in my darkest hours. Blogging has helped me and so have all of you with your kindness and support that allowed me to write and publish this )and I almost didn't). I only wrote about it because I couldn't think of anything else as good answers to this meme. As I told Bev -- like Judy's blog -- imagine what I'm leaving out.

I tend to be an open and upfront person which has always driven my mother crazy. I can't lie with a straight face so I gave that up a long time ago. At one point there was some nasty gossip going around about me here and I was angry because no one who was talking had talked to me. If they had asked -- nicely, of course, I would have told them what they needed to know and if they didn't need to know anything, I would have told them that, too.

When I got divorced in 2000, I ran into an old acquaintance who said, "I saw your divorce in the paper." I replied, laughing, "I didn't. I was there in the court room with a front row seat!" lol
I think they wanted the gory details and I was tired of them.

On my blogoversary, I mentioned that I am planning a series called How I Got to Be Me. And then you can really decide if I have character or am plain damn crazy. Some of my oldest friends here wonder how I've made it through. I tell them it's because I haven't any sense or a gun so I just keep on truckin' as we said back in the day. And as one of my favorite poets writes:

"Razors pain you;
Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you;
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful;
Nooses give;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live."
Dorothy Parker

Thank you all again -- you are the best!!!!!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  1. I stole your pun--meme time! I also just posted my things I never dreamed at 25 list. You are my first meme! Kinda fun, and it will be interesting to see what folks reveal. I loved your list--can relate :)

  2. Wow, your meme on what you didn't realize would be in your future at 25... now you have to write about it.

  3. Hang in there, Kay. We your readers, care for you because you are who you are. All of us are different, aren't we? It's being comfortable in the skin we are in.
