A New Meme

Bernie of BurntOfferings has tapped me for a meme, and it's a good one. The idea is to learn more about someone from their writings, and to that end, the meme-er is to choose prior posts that illustrate the various subjects of the meme.



1. Family..... I have chosen this post to illustrate it. My three children and now my nine grandchildren are the loves of my life.



2. Friends..... and this is the best post I can find. My friend Lib has been gone a long, long time, and there is hardly a week goes by that I don't think of her.



3. Yourself..... You may be sick of reading about me, but I never tire of it...LOL! Maybe this one will be better.



4. Something I love is the next one. This one should be named someone I love, or a day I loved. It is about my wedding day.



5. Anything will do for this section. I chose a post I wrote on my parakeets, who are long gone and still missed.




Thanks, Bernie, for selecting me for this meme. I hope this helps you learn more about my life. Now, for choosing people to do this meme: I hesitate to name anyone, since I have named many for several other memes this year. How about this: if you like this idea, do it and please let me know when you post your choices. It should make for good reading!

Hey there Judy!

Thanks for 'playing', it was great to read post's from your past, and whatsmore, posts that are very special to you!

I know when I was looking through the old posts for ours, that it bought back some very fond memories!!

When you write stories it makes me wonder how on earth you did all that stuff, and why I don't have wonderful stories to tell like you do.

There are books and books in you, and I'd read ALL of them!

Gee, I can't self-tap myself because I don't got any b**gs like that. Except for the last one, I got a lot of b**gs like that, but I can't get to it because I have to do the other chores first. I think that's the way it works.....

I'm just thinkin' maybe I should do that.

Wonderful to read about your family, friend "L" and your wedding day, among the other ones. Great meme!

Have a great week Judy! :)

Will enjoy reading the posts you selected.

Those are some fascinating posts :) Such interesting stories you have in your repertoire!

It's true that we never stop missing those that have left us, it just gets easier to live with in a way. Your friend sounds like she was a remarkable woman and a wonderful friend. I love that you say she was (and still is) a mellowing influence. Sometimes I think I could do with one of those.

What a lovely idea for a meme. But a lot of work for you.

You made excellent choices for the answers.

Perfect posts, Judy, to describe the person that you are. I recalled reading at least three of them, and I'm so glad you chose to share the rest with us. Really meaningful 'meme,' I think!

vicki said...

Bilbo and Belladonna??? What names! And I loved reading the 20 minute wedding story- that one is very very sweet. The others I remember well, esp. that list! Thanks for helping me remember all the things I love about you.

Excellent, Judy!!!!!!!!!

I came late to your blog, and missed these posts originally. I'm so glad to know you better!

Well, it took me a while, but I did come back and read ALL the posts I hadn't read, and reread the ones I had already seen before. I thibnk the Parakeet Post was one of the the first posts of yours I read, Judy...I remembered it as I was reading along...! Terrific Meme! THanks, my dear.
