My friend Robin at Alabama Slacker Mom has tagged me in this About Me 8 Tag, this should be FUN!

8 Things I did yesterday:
1. Woke up on our last day of vacation in Gulf Shores, Alabama

5. Had lunch at Arby's and an icecream cone from McDonalds, yum!
6. Saw a lady trucker almost run us off the road, gee lady just because you put your turn signal on doesnt mean you can just come on over!
7. Heard that my son's girlfriend, Sonny at Life with Bronny broke her shoulder in 3 places riding Bryan's little dirtbike, poor thing, I hope she doesnt need surgery!

Very interesting read! Really enjoyed it, and I love dolphins, too! There were so many things you said from helping the poor to loving pineapple, and I could truly identify. :-)

Oh my, that's a lot of things on the done list and wish list. I hope you get them all. I so appreciate you tagging me, however I am going to think about what I would include in the list. As soon as I can make a list I will post it. Thanks for thinking of me, this will take some thought. Hugs, Marty

Melanie said...

Picket said...

Hey what a great list! I envy you getting to watch dolphins!!!! lol Do you know I have never been to Gulf Shores even!!!! I am just not an ocean person...bad experience when I was younger & I refuse to get in the ocean ever again! lol So we never go to the beaches. But we love going to the mountains in Tenn and we go to the aquarium there in Gatlinburg..once we were at one place and the walkway is like a conveyor belt and you actually go under the fish and it had all kind of ocean creatures and with each thing I saw I was like..'oh my word....Oh My Word...then the sharks went over my head and I was like screaming outloud "OH MY WORD!!!!!!!" LOL LOL

Glad you had a great time and I know you are glad to get back home to your is just so good to always be home...take care sweetie and have a fantastic week ...Get all that laundry washed up and get that sand out of those thongs! (Your flipflops you little doodlehead..what are you thinking!!!! lol)

Thanks for the tag Sue! I'll be posting this sometime this week, once the whirlwind of the closing is over - I just got home from work an hour ago and have to be back at 6, so things are kind of nuts right now! I loved reading all of your responses. Isn't it funny about the dolphins - when we go to St. George we see most of them on the day we arrive and the day we leave, like you said, almost like they are ambassadors! Hugs, Kathy

Bo said...

Hopefully after our trip I'll be back to regular blogging! ;-) Bo
