Quietly minding my own business and...MEME'd by Ray Nellum!!!!

My friend, Sell 'um Ray Nellum MEME'd me on March 27.  And hasn't blogged on AR since.  Ray?  you there?  If you're out there waiting for me, I'm here...  MEME??  I had to research what the heck I was into.

Some things I think I think:

1.  When I butcher high notes, glass shower doors have been know to explode.  But I keep awashin' and awailin'.

2.  I like history.  And, who your family is and who your folks were is important, IMO.  My mother was the daughter of Presbyterian medical missionaries to Persia.  She had a considered perspective on any topic.  My Dad was the oldest of 8 kids, born to a schoolmarm and a county agent who served 46 years.  He earned a couple of medals in WWII for multiple landings of a C-47 at night, behind enemy lines carrying supplies to the Yugoslavian underground forces.  On farm field landing strips lit by car headlights.  I'm impressed.  I miss both my parents every day.

3.  I was 1 of 9 kids, and I can reach the last pork chop on a meat platter 8 feet away without lifting in my chair.  After diverting YOUR gaze away.  Survival tactics learned of necessity from living with an older brother with a longer arm.

4.  "Some think the world was made for fun and frolic, and so do I, Some think it well to be all melancholic, to pine and sigh.  But I, I love to spend my time in singing some joyous song.  To set the air with music bravely ringing is far from wrong!" 

If there isn't any blood, find a way to laugh at it.  "Rub some dirt on it."  If there is blood, it is often cultured and tasteful to bandage and clean up prior to laughing. 

5.  If my clients are doing well, I will do great.

6.  I'm married for 34 years to a girl who lights up the room I am in when she walks into it.  Still haven't figured out...How DOES she do that?

7.  Peanut butter and home-made strawberry preserves slathered liberally on slabs of fresh home-made bread supersedes anything I can't pronounce on a menu that costs more than $4.00.

8.  One good beer is superior to six mediocre beers.  And much better than twelve of any quality.  Moderation in all things.

9.  "No man stands so tall as when he stoops to help a child." ~Lincoln   Abe knew his stuff.

10.  If we ain't having fun, we ain't doing it right.

Sure hope this flushes Ray Nellum out.  I suppose he is on a marathon networking spree down at WalMart...

I'm a little curious about a few other AR North Carolina members, and I'm calling 'em out:

Stu "Realtor Stu" Barnes, Jennie McNamara, and Scott Makesyn

"...6.  I'm married for 34 years to a girl who lights up the room I am in when she walks into it.  Still haven't figured out...How DOES she do that?..."

 Mike, I say "Hooray for you."  I feel the same way about my lady, although we met a little later in life.  And she has the same effect on any room I am in.  I did ask her one time about how she accomplishes that feat.  She told me, "I can't explain it in detail, but it's on the same order as the mysterious refrigerator light.  It just works. So fuggedaboudit."

Happy days to you.

I really enjoyed this read!  That old meme experiment was too much fun.  Probably time to revive it since the network has continued to grow.

Mike - My dad played a lot of basketball at one time.  He still does.  He is Pistol Pete in a 5'10" frame.

Hi Mike,

Loved reading your post. I'm the dirty-dog that named Ray in the first place, sorry I'm so late to the party here.

I sure can relate to #3, I'm from a large family myself. I've heard of people complaining about eating left overs, I had no idea what they were talking about???  And if by chance you did try to save something for yourself in the refrigerator  even with your name on it, you would never see it again, lol. Well anyway I can relate. And #10 is my same line of thinking.

Keep up the great work!

Just curious, Mike if you know any Jacquith's out here in Oregon?  I went with a few girls to China with the same last name that you have!  :)

Sarah,

I can't say that I know any, no.

But, if they can make chocolate chip cookies, I'm willing to claim them as long-lost kin!

LOL
