It's Just Another Manic Monday!

"Write what should not be forgotten." ~ Isabel Allende

"I do the very best I know how - the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, what's said against me won't amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference." Abraham Lincoln

"Easy reading is damn hard writing." ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Manic Monday #216

What are your 10 greatest joys in life?
1~ Dave.. my beloved.. husband.. listener.. friend.. you get the picture..
2~ Kids.. his mine and theirs.. aah what joy in theirs..
3~ My Mom.. we love to go out together sometimes.. we joke about her boyfriends.. she misses my Daddy so much.. I love you Mama..
4~ My siblings.. they are all so special.. each one different.. I can't imagine life without them..
I love them every one..
5~ my writing.. relaxing and frustrating and crazy sometimes.. I love it..
6~ Photography.. I love looking at new things in a new way..
7~ my animals.. from the crow of a rooster to the oink of a fat hog.,, I enjoy them all..
8~ My friends.. lucky enough to have a few close friends I feel blessed by them and their love...
I have many acquaintances but only a few close friends.. I love you guys..
9~ Myself.. am I allowed to be joyous with myself? I am happy with who I am and at peace with my life..
10~ Dave.. yes I know I said him already.. I am doubly blessed to have him in my life... not too many men could put up with me.. some days I don't even want to put up with me myself.. so he gets a double dose of praise.. besides he builds the very best chicken Cages... and he doesn't laugh when I say we go swimming in the middle of the night..

I'll never do _______ again and here's why: There are so many stories I could stick in here.. some of them are way too much to tell and would have my children quoting Mr. Brown with the whole hurl thing.. so I'll just say I'll never pick up a snake again and leave it at that.. and the why is because I hate that the poor snake died after biting me.. I'll also never run a race again or dance naked again or rob a bank again.. oh wait... I didn't do those yet... ;~}

What's the coolest piece of technology you work or play with?~ I am not big on the latest technology.. I love my computer for blogging and writing and maybe a few games.. but I am technology ignorant beyond that.. I don't even know how to turn my phone camera on.. I am pretty smart with my regular old camera though and after five years I am learning new things about my digital camera too.. It has a macro setting.. who would have thought.. I love it.. I love photos.. I used to play a few PlayStation games but was recently informed that I was out of style and that my system was obsolete..

Thanks for visiting my Blog today.. I hope you enjoyed your visit ... I hope you had a great Manic Monday!

Two American Sentence poems...

"In The Gardens"
Diamonds crawled across it's back.. His mama rattled from the bushes...
"Polished Brass"
A jazzy march we took beneath the trees.. on stage an Army band....


Emily's Snapshots said...

I thought that it was kind of funny the way kirstin freaked out when she saw that baby snake expecially since it was way more scared of us than we were of it

snake!? you picked up a snake? wow you are brave, i couldn't even look at those slimy things :((

Pblacksaw said...

Emily~ Yea she was a little freaked.. she is luck I didn't have a jar handy.. I never had a pet rattle snake before..

Vanniedosa~ I didn't pick this one up.. I have been bitten twice.. once many many years ago by a baby rattler like the one in the picture.. I was digging and disturbed him.. the last time a few years ago by a water snake .. again I was digging and when they are frightened they bite.. he was the one that I did put in a terrarium where he slowly wasted away and died.. they actually are not slimy but are very smooth and dry.. Many people love snakes and keep them as pets...
