Award Day

Bethe77 Gave me an Irresistibly Sweet Blog award today and the only things I can cook are cornbread and chili. Well actually, I'm a very good coffee brewer. I appreciate the award.
I'm suppost to link back to the awarder Bethe77, and tell 7 things about me, and give this award to seven other people.
I don't follow directions well (and that's not one of the 7 things), so I'm only going to give an award to one blogger.
But here are the 7 things about me:
1. I've first started dating my wife when Nixon was in the White House
2. I owned my first car when I was 15. It was a 1946 Plymouth coupe
(If my dad hadn't sold it while I was away in the Army, it would probably be worth more than my house today)
3. I've spent more than a year of my life listening to books on tape. (I've actually added it up)
4. I attended college in North and Central America
5. I carry semiprecious stones in my pocket for luck
6. I use patchouli oil as cologne
7. I've snorkeled with barracuda in the Bay of Colon, Panama  
I'm giving my award to my blog friend JJ

My Blog Buddy Ruth sent me this challenge --

An Underwear Meme
1. What do you call your undergarments?  Do you have any commonly used nicknames for them? Drawers. Not sure why, but when I was a kid, my mama would say "you're about to lose your drawers." That was usually when I was about to do something stupid.

2. Have you ever had that supposedly common dream of being in a crowded place in only your underwear? No but I did catch a trout on a crawfish once, if that helps.

3. What is the worst thing you can think of to make panties out of? A parachute.

4. If you were a pair of underwear, what color would you be, and WHY? 
Crimson as in the Crimson Tide. I actually have a pair. I could model them for you if....perhaps I've said too much.

5. Have you ever thrown your underwear at a rock star or other celebrity? That would be a NO. If not, which one(s) WOULD you throw your underwear at, given the opportunity? 
If I was a boxer tosser, I'd hurl some at Grandma Moses. I always thought she was kind of hot.

6. You’re out of clean underwear.  What do you do? 
Wash 'em.

7. Are you old enough to remember Underoos?  If so, did you have any?  Which ones?


8. If you could have any message printed on your underwear, what would it be? Fish fear me.

9. How many bloggers does it take to put underwear on a goat? I've actually only seen a few goats cute enough to look good in underwear, but I'm guessing one blogger with a pair of handcuffs and some good merlot......... again, perhaps I've said too much.

I'm suppost to tag other bloggers, but I think I'll see if I have any volunteers who would like to give this a shot.

Y'all have a great Wednesday.

  4. came over from JJ's blog - getting out and about been stuck in poetry blogging for too long
    your site is fun and "cozy"

  5. I've never dreamed I was in a public place in my underwear but I did dream once of running from someone and I was naked so I took refuge with a circus whose performers and all were milling about and I figured I would blend in there.

    Congrat's to the Award! :-)
    Patchouli is a very nice scent.
    Nice post!
    Enjoy your evening!

  9. Thanks all.
    I always got my patchouli oil at the Body Shop but they stopped carrying it. Not sure what I'll do now. If anyone has a dealer for patchouli, please let me know.

    @Deirdra, thanks for the award. I placed it on my sidebar.

    You guys are the best.

  10. OK - that made me laugh out loud! And patchouli oil ? Why, you old hippie, you... Congrats on the award.
