Got another Sugar Doll Award from Karen at Gumma's Place.  Thanks bunches!  The rules are to list 10 things about ourselves and to share the award with 10 other blogs. Stop on over and visit Gumma's Place, and enter all her neat give-aways!
  1. I love road trips.
  2. I love all kinds of music. It just depends what mood I'm in.
  3. I am the last one left of my family I grew up with of my Father, Mother and Brother.  These are three of my guardian angels.  I have a few more. ~~hehe~~!
  4. I love to crochet in the winter time.  My mom taught me the basics, and I've been trying to learn more ever since.
  5. I learned to play the accordion when I was ten, and as time went on & I was developing quickly & being well endowed my boobs use to get caught in the bellows, so my dad attached a thin cushion in the back so I wouldn't get caught any more.
  6. My kids learned many songs when they were little & now my grandchildren are learning them because we always sang in the car.
  7. I love ice cream.  I can eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch & dinner.
  8. I'm allergic to iodine.  Therefore, sometimes I have to take a benedryl when I eat ocean fish.
  9. I use to sing in a Rock & Roll band called "Perfect Chaos" and played the keys.  In my teens I also sang background for a band called, "Johnny Apollo & his Apaches, and I also use to race cars when I was 18.  I drove a 55 Chevy that was boarded out to a 301 & raced at the U.S. 30 in the Powder Puff Derby.
  10. I love Christmas.  I swear I must be related to the old dude Claus or an elf or something.  If there's a Christmas display in a store I am so there.  When I go to the second hand shops that's the first thing I look for.  I love lots of lights.  The more the better. 
I received this award back on March 24th, and I am ashamed to say it got lost in the shuffle.  I apologize from the bottom of my heart my friend.  So, I would  now like to publicly thank my dear sweet friend, and let's all say a silent prayer for her today because she is on her way to get some surgery done on her back & that's no picnic!  I definitely know that.  SO HUGS FROM ALL OF US Cheryl at CMASH loves to read, who is also the young lady that gave me this award.
Now the criteria..........
This award is to honor and thank bloggers that are kindhearted individuals. I totally appreciate the  comments, networking with you and becoming blogging friends. 
Rule: Nominate 10 bloggers you feel deserve the Humane Award.

Also:  on Tuesday I received two more awards from Cathy over at Snow White's Blog Shop.  Thanks Cathy it was a lovely surprise to say the least, and I really needed it on Tuesday to remind me I'm a nice person because I was fuming that day due too some mishaps involving my job.  WHEW! Glad that one is over with.  lol  Anyway, what I received from Cathy was the award to the left.
For the "One Lovely Blog Award" you need to:
Thank & link to the person that gave you the award.
Pass this award on to 15 fantastic bloggers you’ve recently discovered.

Now, these wonderful, but I'm going to do something different & I'm passing all these awards to my fellow bloggers who have taught me that a person can have very good virtual friends, who you will share part of your life with as they share a part of their's with you, their ups, their downs. sorrows, woes and happiness, and their pride, and who have stood by me when I thought I was funny, and I was not.  These are my awesome new friends I've gotten to know!

Now, in no particular order, and if I've forgotten anyone I apologize:

Thanks so much! I am so glad to have met you. I really enjoyed reading the 10 things about you. I too love to crochet. My grandma taught me when I was a little girl. My current obsession is making crocheted amigurumi figures. I made a whole bunch up for Easter.

Congrats on all the awards that you have received and thanks a bunch for including me in your list of receivers. You always keep me on my toes and I learned a lot more about you after reading this post.

Thanks again!

To all my virtual friends, and not acquaintances I am not out to empress anyone, but to share a joy, sorrow or a memory. To share this lifetime with people who let me share their lifetime. As far as any skills in music I sing from not my throat, but from my heart because of the joy it gives me. Don't say you don't have talent. Everyone has talent by just being you. To share you is a talent. I'm just here to soak up all that talent, and share mine with you all. Lived a full life? Oh no! I'm only half done. I have so many more things I want to do, and having you all as friends is just another step in my life. I stretch out not only my hand to you, but my heart in friendship.
