Hey y’all, a few weeks ago there was a blog hop going around that a few of my blogging friends did ( Shady, Chris and Debbie) and I missed it so I wasn’t able to link up , etc with others.  I liked the idea so I wanted to post too.  Better late than never.

  1. Loved learning more about. Pssst...I have on turquoise undies too!!

    1. I thought it was silly question but I've always been honest!

  2. Hi, dear Holli!

    I'm thrilled that you decided to take part in this hop! I learned a lot about you, plus I learned a few new things in general. For example, I never heard "Seven Spanish Angels" before. I went to YouTube and watched the clip of Ray and Willie performing it. It's magnificent! I never heard of Pig Island or the swimming feral pigs of Exuma. That's a sight that I would love to see someday. Since it is in the Bahamas and probably costs a lot to stay in the area, I'll probably be able to check that off my bucket list "when pigs fly." :) You encountered a ghost? Have you ever posted about it? HolliAnn is a pretty name!

    It was great fun reading your answers to the TMI, dear friend Holli, and thanks for mentioning me and linking to SDMM!

    1. Hey Shadester, I have NOT mentioned the ghosts encounters here but I will some day. Todd doesn't want me to talking about it. It was that scary and crazy!!
      I follow the Swimming pigs on instagram and I want to go so bad!!
      So glad you liked Seven Spanish angels. I posted the song when I announced Daddy's passing because he used to play it a lot on his guitar. Its hard to listen to now but it will always be one of my favorites.
      Hope you have a great week sweet friend

  3. Okay, I wasn't going to mention this first, but it seems there is a need for as turquoise undie inspector...

    Anyway, I shouldn't worry about being late, as it runs for a month and I think me, Debbie, and Larry were the only ones for a week and a half...

    J- I wouldn't be jealous of everyone in California. Oakland's a hot mess, there's that earthquake thing, and the wildfires- hell, I wouldn't be jealous of ANYBODY in California!

    R- of course with the heat you guys get, I'd be afraid of the pool having evaporated by the time I got home from work...

    X- ah, so THAT's the other stuff they found. Not good...

    Z- of course, we KNEW we were both Tauri- we established that last year!

    1. You are right, I certainly don't envy the horrible fires and droughts that many locations of California encounter. I just love the beach and the vibe and so many places of northern and southern Cal.

  4. Loved your answers! And if I hadn't of known already, they only confirm you are my kind of girl!
    Barbara from Life & Faith in Caneyhead

    1. Awww - thanks Barbara!! You're my kind of girl too. :)

  5. Hubba hubba. Is that Charlie Hunham? Nice and hot! Glad you have a pool for sights like that.
    Stay cheery, Holli. Happy Holiday weekend!

    1. Yes maam that is Charlie. He is my "hall pass" with Todd. LOL!

  6. Very interesting getting to know more about you!
    Happy 4th of July....

    1. Thanks Debby. I had a great holiday weekend. Spent lots of time in my pool and got a little sunburned but it was fun.

  7. Fun read!! Hope all is well in your next of the woods, my friend! Happy 4th of July!

    1. So far my neck in woods is doing OK!!! Hope your holiday was a great one.

  8. Just found your blog. Good read. I miss SOA.

    P.S. Don't be jealous of people from California. There's downsides here too.

    1. Hey there!! I miss SOA so much! We have all the seasons on DVD and we're about to start from the beginning again.
      I know there are downsides but I miss living in Cali. I feel like I left a chunk of my heart there.


I LOVE comments!!!!
