Donna Sent Me An Award!

Donna sent this awesome award to me recently, and I just haven't had a chance to post about it until now.  Donna is a real inspiration to me.   I have linked to her Comin' Home blog, but she has several.  You really need to check her out.   You won't be sorry.  She loves to cook.  She loves her family and her friends.  I am so glad that I found her.  Thank you, Donna.
I'm supposed to tell you ten things about myself that you don't know, but I think I have pretty much exhausted those boring facts.  Let me see if I can think of one of my most embarrassing moments in life.  I guess this counts as something you don't know.
When we were 13, my friends and I would ride the bus to Knoxville to shop, go to a movie, and have lunch.  On the way home from one of these trips, one of my friends and I went to the bathroom on the bus.  You know how girls this age can't "go" alone!  Anyway, as the bus rounded a sharp curve, yep, you guessed it, my friend, who had just finished "going" fell against me, and I fell against the door.  We fell out of the bathroom!  We just about died.  So what did we do?  We did what any other sensible 13 year old girls (what an oxymoron) would do.  We jumped back into the bathroom and slammed the door shut!  When we finally got our nerve up to go back out, we found that we had jammed the door.  We had to beat on the door before we could get it opened.  Of course, we caused another big ruckus!  Our other friends, who were on the bus with us, pretended not to know us.  When we finally got to our little hometown and departed the bus, the other passengers applauded us!!!!! I typed this in red, because that's the color my face gets every time I remember this episode!  This friend and I are still very good friends.  She is the director of our area Arts Council.
Now, for passing this award along: the rule is to pass it on to 15 of the blogs you have recently begun following.  Because I think that if someone is kind enough to spend the time to send you an award, you should definitely pass it on.  However, this time, I am going to offer it up to all of my followers to take if you want.  I don't follow any blogs that aren't deserving of such an award!!!  You all have Beautiful blogs.  As you know, if you have been following my blogs, I have been pretty bogged down lately with circumstances of life that are taking my time and my energy.  I have been doing well to get my sewing projects for my grands done, and keeping up (sort of ) with blogging.

This picture has nothing to do with anything, but it was in an email that my cousin recently sent me, and I just had to post it.  I LOVE this picture!  It made me laugh, and I needed a good laugh.

Congratulations. You definitely deserve this award. That was such a great story. I can just imagine how embarrassed you must have been. How neat that you are still friends.

I love the picture you posted. It gave me a laugh, too. Great to start the day with laughter since laughter is good medicine.
