The Liebster Award (x2)

Steve at MSich Chronicles and Tom at Tom Being Tom have nominated me for the Liebster Award, and I have been trying to keep up with these guys ever since! Check out their superb blogs! They write about everything you need to know and even things you didn’t think you needed to know, you do!

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Share eleven facts about yourself.
  3. Answer the eleven questions the blogger gave you.
  4. Nominate eleven bloggers who deserve the award.
  5. Create eleven original questions for the nominees to answer.
  6. Let them know they have been nominated.

Due to the length of this blog, eleven facts about me will be quick!

I am female, 5’2″. I am married, and I live with my husband, Jeff in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We have 2 dogs; Dora and Dezzie. I have had fibromyalgia for over 20 years. I wrote a book! (You should get it!) I admin a support group. I blog here, and I blog there.

Here are Steve’s eleven questions:

Do you prefer boxers, briefs or going commando? And for the ladies, what is your preference for the men in your life? Boxers, the knit kind with tight legs, please. (No one wants to see your junk!)

If you could sit down to talk with one non-religious person, dead or alive, who would that be and why? Marilyn Monroe. (My husband is obsessed with her, I want advice.)

What is your biggest fear? Snakes. (Big or little, venom or not!)

What is the most important quality you need in a friend? Humor.

If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be? My health.

Who is your favorite author? Isabel Allende.

Small Town or Big City? Small Town on an Island!

Salt or sugar? Salt!!!

What is your favorite thing to do when you have some alone time? Watch paranormal TV shows. (They make me laugh when the characters get scared, I know its wrong to delight in others fear!)

The Beatles or The Rolling Stones? Well, Woodstock or the Moon Landing? I’ll take Moon landing and the Rolling Stones for $600. Bob!

What is the one thing you would like to see happen before you die? Peace between the political parties in America.

Here are Tom’s eleven questions:

If you could have one superpower, what would it be? To be able to make money at a moments notice.

Would you use it for others, primarily, or for yourself? Myself. (I would share!)

Twenty years from today, someone hands you a potion and a piece of paper. They say you can drink the potion and live forever or open the paper and see when you will die. Which would you choose? I’m drinking the potion!

Would you be in favor of universal healthcare in America? I don’t believe it would work, many of us wouldn’t get the healthcare we need for chronic illness care but what the hell? Sure! Maybe if we all had adequate health care from birth we wouldn’t need all the specialists we end up with?

How about universal background checks on gun purchases in America? Absolutely.

What about universal domination of the cosmos by America? That’s a bit self-serving, no one should have that! Tom.

Do you wish, at this point, that there were only 7 questions? Yep!

Are alien species visiting the Earth? Yes, notice they keep taking us but sending us back? (Huge hint people!)

Was JFK killed as part of a conspiracy plot? Nope. Not everyone likes you no matter what your official title is. (Don’t ride in an open vehicle even the Pope learned this.)

Should a person do what they do best, as a means of personal income, or what they love most if the two are not the same? It depends, who depends on you? Make smart choices!

When you were 11 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up? I think a nurse... I was very indecisive at 11.

The end! That was fun guys! Thanks!!!

For my eleven nominees… Remember to list eleven facts about yourself.

Now for your challenge should you choose to accept…

Take eleven photographs that will help us understand what you blog about and post them! There is no right or wrong way to do this. You can write explanations or not. It is all up to you! Help us learn about your purpose!

Click away at will!

  2. A fellow potion drinker! Yes! 🤘

    That is a very tempting challenge. I’ll have to consider that one myself (if I can be so bold as to Liebster back. 😉 😂)

    As for your answers … wow! To cherry pick, I love your thing before you die. Peace begins right here at home, between all of us. Good answer! And “make smart choices” was the best reply I can think of for that question. Really great responses overall. You got me thinking and laughing, and those are my two favorite things!

  3. First, I LOVED what you did with the nominations!! It was a fantastic asking anyone reading to answer the questions. I also LOVED your answers!! I wish the political parties could just learn to get along! The way there always has to be war is not a good way to live!!!

  4. so much fun! I love Tom’s questions! and reading all your answers.
    I won’t take the pledge, as I’ve been given the Liebster award before, but I love talking about myself…so…
    11 facts about ME! hahaha I’m turning 55 in less than a month. I recently moved to Tucson, AZ. I don’t like my sister-in-law. (and dangitall, she just moved to Tucson too!) I’m married to the love of my life. We have a little dog named Kiki. I draw a little. I have De Quervain’s tendinosis in my right wrist/hand now! (I had it in my left wrist/hand a couple of months ago…what am I doing?) I was born in Charleston, SC. I was a Navy brat. I’ve driven cross country 6 times now….wow…and actually “driven” is stretching it, I’ve mostly ridden across the country. I have Meniere’s Disease. It took my hearing. I’m much better now than I was a couple of years ago.
    oops, I think that’s more than 11!
    I might take on the challenge of doing a set of photos explaining my blog….but it will be a while.
    thanks for the game. I needed the distraction this evening. xoxo wen

    1. Loved your answers! I absolutely think you can do the photo challenge whenever you feel up to it. Would love to see your digs in Tucson ANYTIME. (Hint!) Bummer the SIL moved to Tucson, too… argh. Hope the change is easing up a bit for you. Moving is a very big deal. Very big. That’s probably why they call military kids ‘brats’??? Who knew!?!?! I think I solved the mystery! Thinking of You! xo~Kim


      1. Thanks Kim. The move hasn’t been too hard on me. Some health stuff has happened. Hope to write about it all soon. Haven’t been able to really type because of an injured wrist, but I got cortisone shot yesterday, so starting to feel much better.
        I was a military brat! But we didn’t move much, was on a sub, so he went for most of the year…maybe that’s why I was a brat!)
