Happy New Year to all my Friends! And I was Tagged!

Happy New Years to all my Friends and Family! My daughter Carrie came driving in tonight from Mexico!! My son in law and grandson were over in New Albany, Indiana at a big church mission conference!! While they were gone Carrie saw she needed to renew her car vista, so as long as part of the family was gone and she and her friends took off for the border, as long as she was at the border getting her papers in order................ She came on up to Missouri!! She was wanting to see those adorable grand children of hers!! I think they are pretty special, too!!
Nancy just loves it when Carrie is here!! She spoils her by getting her a lot of Sonic drinks that she loves!! She received two Sonic cards for Christmas but she thinks they last forever!!
It is very late so I must get to bed but I want to tell you that I hope you all have a Wonderful and Blessed New Year!!!

I have been tagged! I was tagged by Karen over at Karen's Korner and Hope at
Second Time Around!

Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog.Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.

1. I read Dagwood and Blondie every day!! When I was a little girl back in the early forty's my Mother cut out Blondie every day and pasted it in a scrap book for me. I don't know where that went but I would dearly love to have it now!! I still love Dagwood and The Gang!

2. I like the PBR but most of you all know that by now!! I watch it on Saturday and Sunday evenings! For new reader it is the bull riders! Karen took me to see them when they were in Kansas City in 2005!

3. I love cozy mystery books! I like figuring out who done it!!

4. I lived in Hot Springs, New Mexico after World War Two! They changed the name to Truth or C. !

5. I love Chicken so much that my family said I will soon grow feathers!! I almost always order something with Chicken!

6. I go to sleep sometimes in the afternoons sitting up on the couch ! I mean deep sleep! My family thinks that is wild!!

7. When I was able to drive I used two feet!! I was able to get my drivers license renewed this year and I will be 75 when I have to renew them again!

OK, Grams is not going to tag any one but if you want to play, grab this and go with it and come and tell me and I will come over to your blog and read your list!!

Hey Grams!

It is nice to catch up to you this morning!

You mentioned Sonic drive-in. We love those but they are rare here in Ohio. While in Ky we made a point of stopping and having a burger and those!

I've got a new "semi-private" blog. Just write to me at the email listed in my profile and I will send you an invitation if you want it.

Happy New Year!!

Dearest Carolyn,

It's been slow going trying to catch up with everyone's news...I take a few days off blogging and see what happens?! lol I've so enjoyed reading all about your Christmas and seeing all the delightful pictures. How wonderful that your daughter Carrie made it there to visit you:-)

New Year is a time for celebration of love, of life, of friendship.
It's the time to thank God for wonderful friends, and to bring to their lives as much magic as they bring to ours...So here's celebrating our friendship and praying that its magic continues forever. Happy New Year to you and yours dear Carolyn! xoxo

Hey Grams,
"THANKS" for participating. I used to love reading Dagwood and Blondie as well when I was a little girl. Hey, gotta love that Fried Chicken huh? LOL. There was some left from Friday night that hubby had brought home, so on Saturday evening while they was all eating a Frozen Pizza that I had fixed for them, I was eating the leftover Cold Fried Chicken. I love me some Cold Fried Chicken. It taste's really good when your on a picnic. Dang, I'm making myself hungry for some more of that Fried Chicken. LOL. I'm glad you are still driving. My Dad is 78 years old and still driving. I love to watch PBR also. I have seen it in person a few times when they were in Jonesboro. Hey, we all gotta nap sometimes huh? Especially after we have had some good ole Fried Chicken. LOL. "THANK YOU" again Grams for doing this. I really enjoyed reading your 7 Random Facts. "HAPPY NEW YEAR" to you and yours again from our Family. May 2008 be a great and wonderful year for yall. Take care my friend and have a great afternoon. May God Bless You and Yours. Eat a slice of Pizza for me as well.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Hi Grams,

I love your 7 things. I love finding out little details about people. It says so much, don't you think? Thanks for participating. I don't have a very big list of friends yet since I'm new to the game!

I hope you are enjoying the new year so far!!

I have done this meme several times, otherwise I'd play along.

I enjoyed reading yours though. My mom does the falling asleep thing- pretty much every time she sits down for more than a minute she is sound asleep.
