Well, there is not much to say about me, and a whole lot to say about me.  I’m pushing fifty (as in “blew past it and pushing farther and farther away”).  I’ve been married for 33 years to my best buddy and greatest supporter, affectionately known as Sweet Cheeks.  I’m a mother to 2 grown sons (Pancho and Lefty), grandmother, nurse, educator, closet writer, and owner of a really great dog.  I love sunshine, poetry, laughter, learning, humor and good food (not necessarily in that order).  I hate liars, cheaters, injustice, housework and stupidity (pretty much in that order).

  9. Hello! I saw you joined the Crazy Chicks Club! Welcome! I would have come by sooner, but I took an unexpected blog-cation. So nice to “meet” you, and I’ll keep reading! 🙂 Again, welcome to the CCC’s ~Pam

  10. I love your blog, and named you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is outlined on my blog. Also, would you mind if I added you to my blogroll?

  11. I’m notifying my favorite bloggers one by one, since I couldn’t figure out how to get links to work (I’m technically challenged) – You’ve been nominated by me for the Versatile Blogger Award. If you want to take advantage of this dubious honor… Write a post that mentions notquiteold as your nominator, nominate 15 other posts (a lot I know) and tell your readers seven things about yourself that they may not know. Congrats, and I love your blog.

  12. Love your “About!” and connect with much of it. Beautiful shepherd. Looking forward to visiting your work.

    • Thanks, I think. I was recently nominated by 5 people in the same week. I am not sure I am going to be able (time-wise) to play another round. I’ll work on it.

  14. I came here via DP – and found your fire ant post – OMG – hope you are feeling better – love this blogg – RSS’ed it already…

  15. Hi, just found you through your comment on theidiot’s blog. Like your bead spider. Also have broken bones in common. My thigh broke when I was just walking, lol. Also am a great lover of German Shepherd Dogs! Btw I write poetry which you may or may not like.

  16. Hi, I love your “about” page and also made it to 50 this year, which was the reason for entering into the blogging world! Being a closet writer sounds a bit familiar, too! Look forward to reading more… 🙂

  17. I have enjoyed your comments on my blog and “Thank ou” for signing up. I love your about info and … YES … that is one hadnsome shepard.
    A pleasuer to meet you.

  18. Hi K8edid,

    I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger award because I enjoy and admire your blog. There are some rules that go with it. I broke one of them, but I don’t think anyone will notice. If you have done this before or it’s not something you really want to do, file it away. I understand.

    Here are the rules:

    1. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.
Share 7 things about yourself.

    3. Pass this award along to 15 recently discovered blogs you enjoy reading.

    4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.

    Thank you for all your great posts.

  19. Hi, I just read through a few of your very funny posts. You commented on my FP post a couple months ago and, being a lame-o, I am just getting around to visiting the blogs of my nice commenters. Thank you.

  20. Hey K8edid,
    I saw somewhere that you make jewelry. I do as well and would love to see some pics of your things….got a flickr acct?

  21. Oh My! I awarded you two awards on top of the award you were just awarded by the award awarders. http://wp.me/p1CLmE-Ay

  22. I don’t know if this is good news or not, but I just awarded you the ABC Award (Awesome Blog Content). My post will be out tomorrow. Hope you can tolerate another award. If I can, you can! 😉

    • I forgot to mention the ABC Award comes with the requirement (suggestion) that you pick one word that describes yourself starting with “A” and ending with “Z.” I even forgot to do that. I’ll post yet another follow-up just to tidy things up on my end…

      If you plan to ignore the award, which is perfectly understandable), ignore this message, too! 🙂

  23. Got wind that you are having another contest about the seven deadly sins, namely the Sloth. Thought I would enter and did but need to tweak a few things. Is there a way to retrieve it? I forgot to have someone dead or near death. I hope you can help. I am still new to this writing thing and blogging but loving it. Thanks. Will read more of your blogs after a nights sleep. Since you know Lorna’s Voice, I know they must be superb!

    • Just submit another with the title: Revised, or something like that…

      • Thanks..I just posted another story tonight..”Death by Slothfulness” Can the other one “not titled” starts with “List your favorite animal” be deleted by you? Being a newbie, I am learning as I go…it has been challenging and a blast!

  24. Hi Katie!! I have nominated you for the one lovely blog award!! 🙂

  25. Hi, enjoy your blog. I am the author of a new book, “Retirement: A Memoir and Guide.” I’m wondering if you would be interested in my writing a guest post on some aspect of retirement for your blog. Please let me know by email, Boyd@BoydLemon-Writer.com.
