You make me smile

I have been very lucky to recieve not one, but 2 tags recently. I am ashamed to say that I have been slow in thanking my friends for these. A southern gentle woman is always prompt in writing thank you notes. But~ I haven't even gotten the sand out of my suitcase yet. I don't think Scarlett ever had that problem.

First Sandi at Holding Patterns tagged me with the you make me smile award. She said "Sandi (I know it's not Bill since when she and the horsies were on a trip not a peep out of that Bill...bad Bill) over at the Whistlestop is fast becoming my favorite cook because she shares recipes and doesn't leave out ingredients, as some are wont to do. When I fix one of her dishes, it always makes me smile...when I see Whistlestop items in the local stores, I feel like yelling, hey, I know those folks! "

Sandi that just cracked me up! Don't think I won't use that as leverage with Bill.

Then she tagged me again with a special award ' You Lift Me Up'. This was an award for a handful of her bloggy friends. I am in good company! She used a picture of her moonflower with her award. I think as I pass this award on, I will use a picture of my own that will help my Friends know they 'Lift Me Up'. So let me tag Louise at Beachy's Cape Cod Cupboard , my friend Beach Kat who truly does lift me up everyday, Kari who is Living Large in Texas and helping us do the same, and Rhoda who is Southern Hospitality~ she manages to keep bloggin in spite of a busy work schedule.
Y'all Lift Me Up!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and trying to help me learn to post links! :) I will try that next time.

Always nice to meet a fellow Alabamian. I also loved the movies Fried Gren Toamtoes and The Whistle Stop Cafe. What an awesome honor for y'all to be affiliated with that!

I am adding y'all to my blog list!
I'm sure I will enjoy all the recipes too!

I can't believe it is already the 18th of September...Fall will soon be, plan on staying home, no traipsing off to far away places for a few weeks, anyway, ok?

Adriann~ Sometimes the humor is not intentional. You know how day to day can be.
Kat~ You are a bright spot in the day.
GiGi~ thanks cupcake
Carolyn~ I hope you stop in often.
Thanks Julie!
Louise~ I need to put a title in the picture- so hold off a little bit.

Sandi! I'm flattered beyond belief! The Fried Green Tomato Queen knows I'm alive! Or is this a pity vote from Bill. He probably thinks I'm still stinging from your "No Comment" on my "I'm a Comment Hog" post. Well, I don't care WHY you've said it, I'm running with it! Thank you so much. I thank you for thinking of me. It means a lot, truly it does.

Oh, and tell Bill that I'm a willow, I can bend. I'm over the hurt of the No Comment. Really. I am. It's over, it's done, I've moved on. I'm good now. Don't cry for me, either, Argentina. Am I rambling? That happens when I'm flummoxed, which I so obviously am because I still can't believe you think kindly of me! lol

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

Kari~ I don't believe you are flummoxable.
