This picture is one my Sweet and Dear Friend Sandy sent me earlier this week. She at the time sent it to me as a show off of her "Turkey Buzzard". We laughed at the nasty Buzzard on top of a really amazing tree....
One of her cats (she has 17 now I think) had surgery this week and soon after, passed away.... For most losing a pet is a sad thing, but passes soon and you move on. For some they feel like they have lost a child or a family member, I think Sandy is taking this really bad as her cats are like her Children only furry. I also know this has hit her hard because she elected to have the surgery done and he was other wise a healthy cat. She now, I'm sure, feels a heavy burden and I am here to say this "Sandy, Don't be sad for long... this too shall pass my Friend, I'm thinking of you and I have you close in my heart"..... So if you could and you don't feel silly will you keep her somewhere in your heart, I feel so sad for her......
Now on to:
My Sunday Seven.....
I'm starting something new.... I got this idea from a very special person I met while blogging. Bobby from Revellian, He does a weekly rundown of the best Blog posts he's read that week. He has suggested I do this, maybe I wont worry so much about my daily posts, I like daily posting and if at all possible I'll continue to do that but I liked, well loved the idea of highlighting the 7 fantastic, fabulous, fine Blog posts I find during the week. Since there are 7 days in a week, I decided that I will do 7. So here goes:
The first Blog Post I found that really caught my eye was at Christy's Coffee Break:
The Post was titled "Top 5 posts you wish you'd never written".
Christy weaves through this post, sighting the Blog Posts that she wishes she'd never written and in doing so admits faults with the posts or even human error of judgment. I personally have never read anything Christy has written that I didn't love and that hasn't kept me reading. Christy is one of the Bloggers I most admire because of the flow her writing takes. She does some pay per post Blogging too, but that to me, doesn't really mess with her abilities to keep you coming back for more. Christy always excepts peoples criticisms and I personally think they make her stronger as a writer. She also excepts the admiration of her readers with tact and grace. I will follow Christy anywhere she may Blog. You may also find her other Blogs interesting and useful:
Writer's Reviews, Totally Fabulous, A Hint Of Poetry.
Christy's profile lists her occupation as : Freelance Writer, Poet, Blogger, Journalism Student, and parent.
She lives in Ontario, Canada .
Go Christy Go! Keep Blogging and endearing us, your readers, to the world with it's ups and downs!
The next Blog Post is by Life Onwards and it's owner John C.
The Blog post entitled : "I haven't smoked in 51 minutes"
John this picture is for you buddy, Keep fighting the feeling, it's so much better to be a quitter on this one!
John is quitting smoking and I wish him all the best. John in one of those hidden gems you find and are amazed he isn't President, King or both. He's lived an amazing life and has shown each and everyone, that you CAN bounce back from adversity. John as a writer is much more than meets the eye, He's smart and you can tell that fact by reading his posts. Sometimes after I read one of the many titles he writes I find myself admitting I was left out when they handed out brains... He makes me want to learn, want to understand and want to write something smart. I end up commenting at his site more than not and I even manage to leave something funny or even witty. John C. lives in Florida, about 1 hour north of where I live, we have never met but I know He's always there, being John.
John You are one in a million!
Next is Daddy Papersurfer
(don't let the above picture fool you, he's no angel!)
Old Git as we Goddesses call him. He is so popular he even has a Fan Club!
Have you ever read any of his "work" and I use that term loosely, He is a very funny man. He gathers readers, mostly women, around and after a read, we let the comments fly. I love visiting each day just to see what his brain has stormed up for that day. The other day he wrote a post entitled:
He tells of an issue with something I'm sure was important to him, but I never did gather what LOL.....
Daddy P is always on some sort of holiday and it's usually with his wife he lovingly calls, LoTG (Lo- the terrible Goddess) . He writes about his adventures or not. More than just an adventure, Daddy P is funny and he always leaves you wondering who created him and why..... No really, Daddy P is an institution, a purely magical being, sorta leprechaun in likeness.... By Golly, I bet he eats his Lucky Charms every morning, after all, they're magically delicious!
Daddy P lives somewhere I'm certain, yes he lives in the UK, I think....
Visit Daddy P, Join his Club and become another statistic-I mean loyal reader.....
The next Blog post I read that caught my eye was at Fracas.
The above picture is the only picture I can find of Fracas ... I'm quite sure there are others...*sigh*
I read so much this week at her place I have a hard time concentrating, I mean picking out just one post to talk about. The one that sticks out most is: "Woman stuck to toilet seat for 2 years"
OK, so this one is really out there, but Fracas pulls it off with flying colors.... It's really a story behind a story. (no pun intended) The story is real and I'm afraid most people have made it the butt of their jokes (again no pun intended). Fracas makes it clear that this isn't a joke and provides the evidence that it is real included is a link to a video. The Woman suffers from agoraphobia.
I would like to encourage everyone to read Fracas's post it's interesting, enlightening and informative. Fracas lets us know that there is always more to the story than meets the eye. I always enjoy reading Fracas's Blog, sometimes it's very funny and sometimes it's stuff that most don't worry with. Fracas is another Canadian (makes me think they have smart stuff in their water) and I'm glad to say she is my Friend. Keep writing and I'll keep reading Fracas!
The next Blog I found with a post I adored, is from Sylvie D and her Blog, A Glimpse on life in La Rochelle.
This is the only Picture of Sylvie Dixie I find.....
I hope you all know who Ms. Sylvie Dixie is, She and Her Husband Keven Dixie are the proud owners of a website called Fuel My Blog. If you haven't joined I encourage you to do so, for one thing, the best thing is is a network for Blog owners! It hosts a forum and also a voting system that allows fellow Bloggers to vote for their favorite Blogs. The Fuel my Blog team also have a Blog, here's a link to it. What a gift they have given us with FMB! Thank You!
The Post entitled: "Cookie Workshop in La Rochelle" was simply divine! Being your resident Sugar Queen I am always on the lookout for something sweet to write about! Sylvie takes us on the trip of cookie baking and lets us know, she wishes she could bake cookies the "American Way" but has never been able to. I, for one, am here to say those cookies looked wonderful and couldn't have been more American than if they'd been baked here. I say Viva La France! A secret that's no so secret if you read her Art Blog, is that Sylvie is an Artist and a good one at that!
Take a peek at Sylvie's Blog, there's so much more than meets the eye, She is French, She is divine and she is Ooh La La.... She's Sylvie D.!
Next is: 70's Teen
Her post entitled "12Th and 13Th March of 1979" grabbed my eye because it was about shoes and showing off our legs. I love shoes, but as I stated in her comments section, I am not a high heel wearing woman.... I do have great legs for my height and weight though....
I wish I would have done as 70's did and kept a diary of my teen years, they had some rough spots, but all in all I had fun! 70's writes her Blog from her diary during the 70's and most of the time doesn't sway from that era. The 70's were a fun and free time in years and I'm sure most have good memories of them.... 70's you always amaze me with your fun and memory filled Blog!
Now Blog number Seven- of "My Sunday Seven"....
The Kat House
Tish is a blogger that I have admired since I first found her Blog almost 2 years ago. She always writes things I care to read and she always sends me into the thinking mode. Her post:
"Television characters I could fall in love with" sent me into a place I like to go, a den of thoughts and fantasies of sexy men I see on the boob tube.... The 2 guys Tish fell all Google eyed over were Sam and Dean of the show, Supernatural. Now for me, I felt they were to young so I sat back and thought about who sends me and this is who I came up with:
Mr. Big from Sex and The City, I just swoon when that guy is on a rerun of SATC or Law and Order....
Yum Yum Yum......
Or Christopher Meloni also of Law and Order SVU
So Tish keep them thinking and fantasizing posts coming, It's needed!
So there you have it My Sunday Seven.... I hope you go peeking and poking around and find more about the Bloggers I have highlighted this morning and see for yourselves what Special People they are....
For you Bloggers I have talked about Keep it coming! I love having my mind tickled!
Everyone needs a little Sugar!
