Super Comments

My Good Friend Ms A at Ms. Anthropy…Sarcastic Granny, has graced me with the Super Comments Award. Comments are a big part of blogging, commenting shows that other people are reading you and paying attention to what you are writing, you also have to comment on other people’s blogs and feel blessed when you have these good folks come back around and actually read your stuff again. I do enjoy commenting on your blogs I may not get around as quickly as I like to but the more friends I gain here the slower I become it seems, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to get there because I will show up. I do appreciate all of you who have chosen to follow me, and for those of you who comment on my stories and opinions I am honored to have you drop by and make me realize that writing my blog is worth it.

Thank You for reading and commenting I appreciate it more than you know.

And Thank You Ms A, being recognized by a top-notch writer like yourself is about as Super as you can get.
The rules for this award are to answer the following questions:

1. Why do you blog?

I actually started blogging to put my thoughts out there in front of me to sort of work through them, Just My Opinion is where I started and now it’s sort of the story of my life and by sharing this I have found an excellent group of friends.

2. What was your favorite age to be and why?

I have said if I had to go back I would pick my 30's. I was still working and had no complications with my health at the time.

3. What's your favorite sport to play?

Bowling on Wii is about the only one I can actually do, I don’t know if that is a sport though.

4. What's your favorite sport to watch, and who's your favorite team?

I always was an Atlanta Braves Fan in the past, Nascar is the one I actually watch now, I like the #29 Kevin Harvick.

5. If you could pick your perfect career (and money doesn't matter/the kids are out of the house) what would it be?

A Door Greeter at Wal-Mart “Welcome to Wal-Mart, Take the D*%# Basket” Seriously I always loved my job in Outside Customer Service with the Water Company, I would do that again.

6. Do you ever feel guilty for blogging?

Nope I actually Love it and Cindy likes that I’m out of her hair.

7. What is your favorite holiday?

I like the ones we get to share with Family, especially when the kids are around.

8. What's your favorite kind of music?

Classic Rock, 70’s Rock and Roll, some Country, Gospel, heck I just like music.

9. Do you consider yourself a good driver or bad driver?

I always thought myself a very good driver. Dustin Hoffman as Raymond in Rainman stated it perfectly “I'm an excellent driver.”

10. What's the farthest away place you have visited?

I think I am there now if you start from where I was born, Southern California is a long way from South Carolina.

Now for the hard part I have to pick some of you excellent commenters to pass this one along to:

Ron at Vent..a series of takes is always there everyday commenting on my stuff

Susie at Life according to Dr Susie Q is also there and has been from the start and from the heart

Heather at Welch Happenings tells me exactly what she thinks just like the rest of you do

Betty at Bossy Betty is a new friend I have come to appreciate

And now “Your Name Goes Here”

I’m going to stop right now at five because I will go on to list all of you if I don’t stop myself now, so fill your name in on the last line because I Love Ya!! and I do appreciate your comments along with the kindness you all have shown me, each and everyone of you deserve an award just for reading this stuff I put out for you.
