Yep, I'd say I'm "Pretty Dang Lucky." This is a 'Two Part-er' today, so, I hope you'll hang in there with me while I share my Luck.
Now, there are a few Rules for receiving The Liebster Award, which I will bend just a bit... That is just how I roll. They are:
...Post 11 (or just 1) Random Fact(s) about yourself. OK...
#1) I like to think of myself as Rugged and Billy B. A., you know: A Man's Man.
But when I see a child that has been mistreated and/or harmed by an
Adult, it often times brings tears to my eyes. It seriously just breaks my
heart. (Now, give me just 5 minutes with that adult!!!)
...Answer Marcia's 11 Questions of her Nominee's. OK...
#1) What is your biggest phobia?
Of dying too soon. (Not sure when I'll cross that line of: OK, it's time)
#2) Have you ever buried your face in a cake?
I have not, although it probably looks as though I do when I eat cake.
#3) If you could change ONE thing about yourself, what would it be?
Probably that I would never BITE MY NAILS again. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!
#4) Have you ever been in a Bounce House while intoxicated at a Kid
Quick answer: No... Standing nearby with a Libation: Yes
#5) If someone handed you $1,000 right now, what is the 1st thing you
I would say: Holy Smokes!!! Then I would have Donna call all the Kids
and we would treat all of them to a very nice dinner out. I would like to
think that with what was left over, I would help somebody out.
#6) Has your neighbor ever seen you in your underwear?
Unless they can see through the blinds, NO.
#7) What is the ONE Food Time you can't live without?
Hardly ever eat breakfast. So, probably Dinner. Lunch is a close 2nd!!!
#8) Do you sleep in the buff?
Although I have, as a rule, NO. Gym Shorts for me.
#9) When you were little, what did you want to be when you became a
Easy... A Professional Baseball Player. As a kid, it was a Passion.
#10) Have you ever gone Skinny-Dipping? Details.
The short answer is YES. Much younger. Camping with several couples.
#11) Have you ever had a Bowel Malfunction BEFORE you could reach
YES!!! On vacation many years ago. Key West, Florida. About to watch
the Sun Set on a Pier near a Bar. And it hit right then and there.
Absolute EMERGENCY!!! Said I would be right back. Entered the Bar.
Did not see a restroom. Time was of the essence. Went up to the Bar
and asked the Bartender where the nearest restroom was. He said there
were two. "One over there, and one over there." (Opposite ends of the
room). I chose the one on my right. My "cheeks were squeezed tightly"
as I hurriedly walked toward the restroom door, feeling extremely
uncomfortable. My "Volcano" was about to BLOW!!! I put my hand on
the door knob and turned feeling all kinds of relief that I was so close to a
toilet. But, the door was LOCKED!!! My heart sunk, and so did all my
will power. Right then and there, at that door, I lost it. And yes, I had on
WHITE SHORTS. And yes, I walked all the way over to the other side of
the Bar to the other restroom. And there, a one urinal, one stall,
restroom, I stripped, threw away my underwear, and hand washed my
shorts in the sink as clean as I could get them. I had to clean myself as
well. I had to put my soaked shorts back on and walk out, through the
Bar, and back out to the Pier, where my wife at the time asked: "Where
have you been?" All I could say was: "You don't even want to know."
The Sun Set??? Long Gone!!! Also, no cell phones back then...
...And finally, Nominate 11 Bloggers for The Liebster Award. OK... (My Way)
For me, I just find that task way too difficult. So, I'll open it up. If you are a Blogger, Love what you do as a Blogger, and you want an Award, say a Liebster Award, you go on right here, right now, and Grab It!!! It's yours. You deserve it. And it's from Slu and Slu's World... Take it and Enjoy it!!!
Thank you again Marcia... You are too sweet. Happy Friday to you from Slu.
