Just some talk....

Okay...let me see. First, to Meg who asked me awhile back about Percentage Bars/Progress Bars. I didn't have your email so what I can tell you here is that the site that I got mine off of does not have them on there anymore. (I actually just googled "percentage bars for blogs"). It was call Unlikely Words or something like that. But, try this site instead: There are a couple of methods on how to do it. I'm the type of person that can't explain really good cause lots of times I don't understand, I just follow what they tell me to do. If anyone has any other good sites, let me know and maybe Meg will catch it. (I'm sorry, I don't have her blog name either)
Second, blogger is still being a poo-poo head and not letting me upload on my main home computer. But I managed to get around it and have some pics of last weekend's fishing trip stashed away for tomorrow's post. Stay tuned.
I also hopefully will have pics on Sunday of items that I bought on vacation as well as the great stuff I got from Lynn at Fiberific (my one skien secret pal) and a cute cute bee that Mimi sent me. (ya all know Mimi!) It's just that I need to use another computer to upload for some reason. Sweetie man will be cleaning out the one that doesn't like blogger today.
I just don't want you all to think I forgot about yinz guys. Ya know I love ya all!
Also, I know alot of you gals read so please check out the The Great Bookmark Exchange. We are looking for more people and I sorta challenged everyone to get one person to join. It's easy, it's fun, and there really is no time limit. When you've made an exchange and your ready, you just let Juli know. I've gotten some really cool books that I may not have tried out. Just email Juli at You can even just do it one time and see if you like it. It's a cool way to get rid of some already read books too and get something new at no cost.
Oh, and also, the Sweetie Man has a new simplified blog in which he speaks his mind on all sorts of don't have to agree with him, but it's neat to read other people's opinions and voice your own in a comment...check it out....

I was tagged at the beginning of August by Swapna at Where Is She Now: I'm so excited...this the first time I've been tagged.....Here goes!

6 weird things/habits about myself

1. I have the longest hair of any almost 50 year old I know and probably pretty much the same style as I did in High School. (plan to never cut it either just to annoy those who think I should!) Nor do I have any gray hairs---honest!

2. I hate to drive.....I do it out of necessity. I won't drive long distances unless I'm forced to nor will I drive on turnpikes or big highways....makes me nervous. I will drive on country roads and around our town. I will however be a passenger with no problem. I also cannot read in the front seat (get nauseated) but can read with no problem in the back seat.

3. I drink milkshakes by using a regular straw as a spoon. (takes longer but it's usually worth it)

4. I'm afraid of asteroids and meteors hitting the earth or even hearing about it and if you start to talk about it, I will delete your blog from my bloglines. (I'm not kidding!)

5. I will not enter deep water in any pool/lake/ocean/river, no way no how no where.

6. I refuse to kill spiders....I think they are cute and will physically remove them, IF it becomes necessary, to safer grounds (not to mention, I would enjoy a tarantula as a pet) I would have no problem with spiders crawling on me. (I am however freaked out by centipedes!)

MMMMM...what 6 people shall I tag....let me see...mmmmm....
Okay...I'm going to tag...


Have fun, yinz guys...I'll be watchin!
Okay, that's that for Friday.....catch ya all on flip-flop tomorrow! Folk-n-Fancy, signing out!

Guess what?

OMG...I actually got blogger to post some pics. Well, two is better than none I guess, so we will just take it one step at a time. The two I got are of a third puppy we hopefully will be getting. (don't worry, I'll will have pic updates on Chloe Nicole soon....she is getting bigger and crazier!)
This one is of Eros Caliente.....

"Eros" being the God of Love and "Caliente" meaning Hot! (Hey, you do the's Sweetie Man's idea!) He's only 3 weeks old here and is the biggest of the bunch.....and will only get bigger....he is a Mastador (Mastif and Lab mix). He should be an excellent dog....very protective and very very big! He has the Mastif face of his mom but the colors of his dad. So so beautiful! The next pic is of his siblings....11 in all (there were 12 but one left for Puppy Heaven)

...the mom is only able to feed 8 at a time though.
We have about 4 more weeks to go before we get him. Even tho a Mastif is the largest of all breeds, he supposedly does well in even in apartments. They are very laid back dogs...don't need alot of space.
Call me crazy.....but the older I get the more I love animals. Getting this pup was actually my idea. This is going to be one awesome family of pets.....Cujo the turtle, Katie Sue our mix breed dog (more Brittany Spaniel) , Chloe Nicole another mix dog (more Jack Russell Terrier), Echo Dufoe our lovable cat (probably not spelled right cause it's French), and of course the new Eros Caliente, the Mastador!
Stay tuned......this could get interesting!!!
