'You've Been Tagged'!!....UGH!

     Uh Oh!! She got me! LOL...My Blogger buddy over at Facing50WithHumour had the nerve was so kind enough to play her game with me. A game of 'TAG'!...I haven't played 'Tag' in more than 40 years! Thankfully, with this one, I don't have to worry about how far I'll end up away from home at dinnertime, or how sweaty I might get! LOL Although....... ^_^
       This game of 'Tag' does have rules though, including that everyone tagged has to answer the following questions... So here goes...
Do you think you're hot?
Yes....Yes I do!! And I don't 'think' I'm hot. I 'know' I'm hot!! :-) Didn't answer that the way you thought, did I?! ^_^ Well, the reason is because my 'hot-ness' is not what you think....I'm in my 50s!!
     ....'Hot-ness' has a whole OTHER meaning for 50 year olds!! LOL And, Yes indeedy Bob! I'm H-O-T!!!
Upload a picture or wall paper that you are using at the moment.
          Isn't it 'purdy'! When I hit it rich selling all of my celebrity crocheted pieces and fancy poetic artwork, this is what my estate for my summer home will look like!......*And then I woke up! LOL*
When was the last time you ate chicken?
Okay, Any United States Southerners, or other transplanted Georgia Girls, close your ears....*Gulp*...It's been almost a week since I had any chicken, I think!!! UNHEARD OF, I know!! Especially since I'm a chicken connoisseur! I dare say, a chicken officianado! In fact with my expert knowledge of 'The Chicken'...
      ...I practically could 'BE' a chicken!! LOL
The song/songs you listened to recently.
Okay.....Seriously?! I could be here all year trying to answer this question!! LOL Especially since being a chicken officianado is not my only officianado-ship! I'm also a music officianado!
       But, if it's 'just recently' you want, that would have to be 'Someone Like You' by Van Morrison, or this new song I just heard called 'You and I' by Wilco. {I've gotten hooked on that song!}
What were you thinking while doing this?
I was wondering how I could turn my music love and my crochet love....or said 'officianado-ships'...into a profitable business venture! LOL
         Hmmmmm.....crocheted head-phones!! ^_^ .....Oh Well, somebody else already thought of that. I'll have to keep thinking on that one! :-]
Do you have any nicknames? What are they?
Yes! I'm afraid I do....Actually, I have more than one! Some....actually one person...calls me 'Nurse' (a past career path); Hubby calls me 'Bae', 'Honey', 'Baby'...Or...
     ...'Puddles'. It's a nickname he gave me back when we were dating. {I used to cry all the everything! A score that was made in basketball, a commercial or movie on T.V., a look, a...ETC...You know what I mean...UGH! I was so pathetic! LOL}
      Other nicknames are variations on my name: Dee Dee, Deb, and DeBORah...Oh Yeah, there is one more....*sigh*...The kids on the playground used to call me 'P-Pot'...NO LAUGHING!!! I had a little bladder issue as a kid...what can I say?!! O_0
Tag eight blogger friends...
Cindy of CinLynn Boutique
Shannon of Alittlesprite
Hollie of & Baby Makes Three
Patty of Art and Sew Forth
Cathy of Artsy Butterfly
Jo-anne of Blooming Lovely
Dee of Dee Dee's Vintage Retro Delights
Elisa of From Croatia....To The States
Who's listed as number one?
I really don't like this question, because I don't see people as numbers. But I know which one I communicate with and have the closest relationship with! That is without a doubt...Cindy! I guess, like the old Star Trek series...{Oh! Where did that reference come from?! O_0 I haven't seen a Star Trek episode in eons! ^_^}...Cindy would be my 'Number One'! :-)
Say something about number five?
This is easy! Cathy is a fabulous artist! She's also a fabulous photograher! But lately she's been combining the two...and sketching! And she's GOOD too!! And a great communicator.
How did you get to know number three?
I don't remember! O_0 I think I followed someone's link over to her blog. But once I saw her open way of communicating, and her wonderful photos, I was in! :-)
How about number four?
I 'think' I met her on Twitter...But then I was following her around like a puppy dog...because she makes the most adorable puppy dog and kitty cat toys!...No! I don't have a dog or a cat! LOL I just appreciate her work! Take a look in one of her Etsy shops and you'll see what I mean!!
Leave a message for number six?
Jo, I thoroughly enjoy your blog! And I love the fact that you, like me, blog every day. I look forward to popping over and seeing what you're crocheting or knitting; what you're thankful for on thursdays; what you bought at the farmer's market; and how you're surviving 2 teenage boys!! :-) Keep up the good work...and I'll be reading! :-)
Leave a lovey- dovey message for number two?
A lovey-Dovey message?!....That's not how Shannon and I 'roll'! She's my 'Yoyo Bag Pattern' Supplier and my Australian 'Tell-It-Like-It-Is' girl...Okay, I love her. You dragged it out of me!! LOL
Do number seven and number eight have similarities?
Well, let's see...they both have children, they both like to travel, they both cook nice goodies on occasion, and they both love their friends. One likes exploring old things, while the other is exploring new things! :-) ...And of course, they both have ME in common! ^_^
 By  the way - everyone mentioned above:
TAG - YOU’RE IT!” ^_^
       Before I leave my poem today, I want to thank all of the shop owners above for the use of their Etsy shop items. They're all things that are for sale. You can click on the photos to take you to their shops...Please go by and take a look!!

Do You Play?!

I had some 'Play Time' in my youth,
back when my hips could take the heat.
I couldn't wait to find someone
that I could race, chase down, or beat!

How many times did I 'Hopscotch',
play some marbles, skip a rock?
And a game of 'Tag' could go
until you couldn't see the clock!

All my games were very active.
So much energy, people. WOW?!
But things have changed. It's different,
because I'm so much older now!

I still have Play Time at my age,
but the games are slow and rare.
I like board games, playing cards,
things you do right from your chair.

The games can't be too long.
I'll fall asleep! I'm kind of nod-dy.
And I have to use my mind.
No running round now with this body.

Even so, I have to play!
It's my excuse to have a laugh.
I just have to keep it slow.
Don't want a charlie-horse in my calf!   


  1. Great getting to know you better :) enter me please :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  2. Bee Happy, Awwww! How nice!...And I'm entering you right now! :-] Have a good day too!

  3. This is a cute post my friend! Thanks for calling me number one! You're number one in my book as well! I appreciate the tag. Not sure if I'll ever get around to doing this (I'm a pathetic procrastinator), but I'll think on it! I'm sure no one would want to see my wallpaper photo! I think it's hilarious, but not sure what other people would think!

  4. CinLynn, are!! :-) And I had fun with this, even though I was complaining about it when I first saw it. Once I started thinking about it though, I was into it. It's writing, after all! :-)) With words! You know how much I like that!! I think you'd have fun with it too!

  5. ha ha ha ha bless you thanks for the tag it may take me a while to get round to this to but hey what fun ;-)) I will do it at some point. dee x

  6. You have surpassed yourself here. What a fabulous piece and the pictures are so good. I really liked your expert 'chicken picture' and the 'purdy' estate. I want one of those too now...must sell my book, have it turned into a successful movie then buy all my blogging friends a new estate each.
    This is such a good post and you've really provided such entertaining answers...better than mine (grrr).
    Thank you not only for the lovely mention but for playing along. I think we had a similar response. When I got tagged I thought oh no! but as I wrote I enjoyed it.
    So, Puddles, sorry - Poetess Wug, thank you for entertaining me this grey and wet morning and cheering me up.
    Hubby is looking over my shoulder and said that you write very well. He keeps making me go over bits because he reads more slowly than me (ow - been thumped!)He's quite curious as to how you laid all the appropriate photos out too. It's just beyond him. I think he'd look rather good in the earmuffs.(ow - stop hitting me)
    I shall go and visit your tag mates and check out the new artist you've been listening to. I'm always interested in new music.
    Hugs and fond wishes from us both

  7. delia, It was my pleasure Dee!! :-] Have fun with it!

  8. you should crochet ears muffs. Is it what they're called? Clearly I don't live in a cold weather environment! lol I thought thats what the headphone were at first! They're so cute!

  9. What a great read...and a fabulous poem~...
    SO happy I wasn't tagged as I have WAY to much to get done today...but I will try coming back and linking to all your that would be fun to read their TAGGED posts!
    HAPPY FRIDAY Debbie!

  10. Oh my gosh! Hello Kitty headphones! NEED.

  11. can I come visit you when you get that summer estate?
    Your poem made me smile. Happy Friday!

    (we are going on a road trip tomorrow,) Texas

  12. Facing50, Awww! Thank you! Considering the person that tagged me...*wink! wink!*...I wanted to do a good job. :-]...And YAY! I'll be able to get my estate no matter what happens!! ^_^ Maybe you're be able to afford to get rid of some of that gray and rainy weather when you strike it rich too!...Maybe not! Ha! Ha!...And please tell your hubby I said THANK YOU for such a nice complement about my writing!!! Put me in a good mood! I even called my hubby in to see his comment! ^_^ And tell him about the thumping...CUT THAT OUT!!! ^_^ Thanks for such a nice comment...And have a rain-free, sunny day (in your mind if not in real life)! :-]

  13. Hollie, Ha! Ha! Yes, they're called ear muffs. ^_^ And I haven't crocheted them up to now because they're too involved, and I don't want to have to start Googling what normal, medium, and large head sizes are!!! LOL But I agree...hers are very cute!...Thank you for the nice comment.

  14. We Blog Artists, You're not going to believe me, but your busy schedule is exactly why I didn't tag you!!! You were on my list initially! :-)...Thank you too, for the nice words about my poem. I appreciate the feedback more than you know. Have a good day, Char!

  15. Elle The Heiress, *Teehee*...They are the cutest! I agree! Too bad I didn't think of making them first!! :-)

  16. Elisa, Ha! Ha! It's going to be a long, hard, cold wait before I get a visit from you, I see!! ^_^ The idea of me owning an estate like that...a summer estate, no less...has taken up residence in my mind, but not in my wallet...if you know what I mean! ^_^ Thanks for the nice words about my poem. And have a good time on your road trip tomorrow. Take lots of pictures!! :-)

  17. Oh my - what a riot! What a fun read. And to think I have been tagged....well well. I will have to see what I can do with that! Thank you for the kind words about my shops!
    Love that puddles picture!
