This week, I am back with my "normal" blog after taking last week to enjoy The Liebster Award. Now, I want to share with you "What I Like," which, I hope, will explain why I will forever say that I am truly blessed.

She would have none of that. Our communication is now strong, thanks to her, and is one of the reasons that our marriage is where it is today. She says she is my "Wife for Life" which brings to me a level of happiness in my heart and my spirit and that truly makes me appreciate each day with her.
I like our "Motley Crew." It's a "Brady Bunch" kind of mix: My three, her three... add in a daughter-n-law, a step-son-n-law, a boyfriend, a fiance', an almost, maybe kinda sorta fiance', two grand-children, and Toby (the dog) and it explains why my hair is rapidly turning more and more gray (ha!!!). Kids will do that to you. It hasn't always been "perfect," but life with the "crew" has been really good and when you can say, "I wouldn't have it any other way," well, I'll take that any day.
I like my Facebook Friends... at over 400 and counting, probably close to half are family and friends from my early years in Dallas, or my friends from High School in Houston, several of which I really did not even know well at the time, but have become better friends through FB. Others that I knew, I have re-acquainted with and the day to day interaction with old friends is both fun and rewarding. A "place" to "hang" with friends. Makes me smile... As well as my New friends within the Blogging Community. Which leads me right into:
I like the Internet... How can we look back to the 60's, 70's, and 80's without wondering how we ever made it without the Internet??? Holy Smokes!!! Well, some might suggest it was better back then without it. We had Gunsmoke, Carol Burnett, and the Red Skelton Show. Andy Griffith, Dick Van Dyke, and Lucy. As kids, we were the remote: "Get up and go change the channel for me" (there were only 5 or 6 choices). Large telephones on the wall with cords for crying out loud. Well, I'm kinda diggin' progress!!! Kinda diggin' the world at my fingertips. Lap-Tops, I-Pads, Smart Phones and Smart TV's. Kinda diggin' technology. And I'm sure kinda diggin' Pandora!!! Ha...

I like Houston Texans Football... I recently stated on this blog that I am a Season Ticket holder and have been since Day 1. And now, finally, after 10 years, it appears that we may be on the verge of really BIG things happening this coming season. Dare I suggest a Super Bowl??? And for the first time in 10 years, a game on Thanksgiving Day at Detroit
I like Cooking... I have cooked off and on for most of my adult life. But, about 18 months ago, give or take, I went online, found a "healthy" recipe website, selected a recipe for our dinner that night, and prepared it. I did not "re-invent the wheel," but I did accomplish two things that night. First, Donna sat down
|Our Fave "His & Hers" Cups|
These are just some of What I like and what absolutely make my world "go 'round."
As Neil Young sang in "I am a Child," "You can't conceive of the pleasure in my smile."
|Slu's version... "Wow"|
|His & Hers: Wine & Jack|
Libations Anyone???: In keeping with the title of this Blog Post, the pic at your left should "say it all." Nothing like a few bottles of Wine & some Jack at the "ready."
Market Watch: Two weeks ago, a new low was reached as Facebook was clearly heading South... nothing much has changed in that regard. In these past two weeks, more losses to the tune of closing yesterday at 19.44.
The End: In the last week, my Blog "page views" numbers have set an all time high. I truly appreciate your time spent here on this page and as always, I want to say Thank You. Next week, check back for "Livin' the Dream."
Be safe, be smart, and always smile... It's "Happy Friday"
