  1. Huh? Oh, and you can add the award in the post, if you want to. Just click the little picture thing on the posting page. :O)

  2. I'm betting that you've never had a fight with your longtime, but opposite thinking best friend because you respect the rights of others to have their own view of things. Likely your friend does, too. That's wonderful!

    1. I would say that is exactly right. We talk about politics and moral issues and once in a while, we agree! LOL I learn a lot from her and I imagine she from me, it's the exchange of ideas and beliefs and feelings that make us such a great match. I adore her. ♥

  3. You're so sweet, Jo. Thanks, but I think I already have these. I never did what I needed to do for the "Sweet Award," so how could you know?


    1. Of course you do! How could you not have been bestowed the sweet award? You can never get too much recognition for the laughter you bring us all!

  4. Thanks Jo! I need to read the instructions a few times again to figure this out but THANK YOU!

    1. You can just post the award...the rules are optional! But if ya wanna share the love, go for it. ♥

  6. Thanks much! I am truly honored. :)

    1. You are worthy. My pleasure. ♥

  7. Thanks so much Jo...finally getting around to writing my list of 7. :) you are so neat - I like reading these lists, but they are awful hard to write!

    1. I agree! Sometimes the awards are just not worth the effort, but this time, I got 2 at once and thought oh, what the heck! LOL So I shared the love with a few of my favs who hadn't just been selected.


I really want to know that YOU were here...please drop me a note or just say Hi ~ I do love a comment and it keeps me motivated!
