Tho I don't have my annual heart check-up until November, everything has been fine and dandy thanks to modern science, the electrophysiologist/cardiologist and hospital staff!! Here is the post after my hospital release...

[I remember one morning, early, in our Tucson neighborhood when I was out doing my morning walking ritual, and in the middle of the road---this is near a desert area with catcus and a large pantano- right smack dab in the middle of the road and me walking up to it [almost!] there laying on the heated blacktop surface was a huge, HUGE and fat, diamondback rattlesnake. I gave him plenty of room!!!] Anyway, coming back to two of the most creepy creatures on earth.... snakes AND SPIDERS!! This one, tho, is nothing but a brown spider tie tack I used to wear on Halloween. I haven't worn it for ages; mainly 'cause one year one of the doctors I worked with tried to 'flick it off' - he thought it was real, but I know deep down he wanted to 'cop a feel'. Needle

But like my sidebar states...born in hicksville---Nebraska. 2. If you could live any place in the world, where would you live? I think I already do...in my own little world. 3. What's your favorite blog? I'll check them out of course! I have no favorites...actually, my favorite blog pastime is reading my comments...so, comment away folks!! 4. What is your biggest blogging pet peeve? Word Verificiation/Captcha...as many times as I've read on other blogs about the 'pain in the butt' they really are, I must agree. It takes away from those who really like to comment but don't have that much time to try and read/decipher some of those!! Some are so difficult to figure out and it takes several attempts to get it right; and if that's the case, I leave without commenting. 5. What's your favori

My six words: :::THINKING:::growing my hair long, again!! - - -<><><>- - - CAMERA CRITTERS About 5 years ago, I did have long, long hair. Actually, the length of it was where I could literally sit on it. But, it got so heavy once we moved here in the high humidity that I decided to have it cut. The day I went in, I asked the gal to save my hair so I could donate it. Well, she braided it and whacked it off. My 'do' was now just above the shoulder in a page boy style. I liked it a lot. The weight was gone and my scalp and neckline felt fresh air. As days and months progressed, and I got acclimated to the wet sea air...the length wasn't short enough so I traipsed back and told her I wanted a page boy cut again without the page!! Just give me a short ....boy's style. I've kept is short now for about 4 years. But, I'm thinking back a while ago...of the days of french braids and butterfly combs and being able to style it in so

Bloggers? Meet Sheherezade. Sheherezade, meet bloggers.... From Names Online: The girl's name Sheherezade \ shehe-reza-de, sheher(e)-zade\ is of Arabic, Farsi and Persian origin, and the meaning of Sheherezade is "city dweller".

Having been betrayed by his first wife, the husband had resolved to marry a different virgin each day, and kill at dawn. So fascinating were Sheherazade's stories, however, that the king let her live so that he could keep hearing them. He eventually fell in love with her. Now, really...how
