Thank Goodness ,It's Friday!

I've been tagged by Karen at Karen's Korner for a meme. Tell 7 random things about myself and then tag 7 more people. I'm going to tag seven. You can do this at your leisure or not do it at all. it's up to you..It's just a little thing to get to know you better..

Here's Mine..

1). I got to sing back-up one time with Jeannie C Riley( Harper Valley PTA).. That was fun. She was a sweety..
2). I used to sing in nightclubs in and around Houston,Texas. Anything from Hard Rock, Pop rock and blues to Country. I have actually sung a a nightclub, where they had a chicken wire fence in front of the bandstand, so people couldn't throw beer bottles at the band.. Yeah. I quit that life.. Too
3.) My daughter and I have been up in a Hot Air Balloon before.. It was at a Balloon Festival in Jackson,Tn when she was about 3 or 4 years old.. Scared me to death.... She absolutely loved it..
4.) When I was 5 years old, My parents got a divorce and I flew every summer to see my Dad. I would go by myself, with a stewardess as a guardian. I got to talk tot he captain and the crew and got a pair of wings every time I flew..
5.) My Daddy used to be a Baptist preacher..( yep. Then he had an affair and my parents divorced.)
6.) I once kissed the lead singer of the Little River band (Glenn Shorrock). I was a teenager, hanging out backstage at the Houston Summit with my friends. They came out to their Limo and were putting stuff in the trunk. I got his autograph , he talked to me a couple of minutes, then gave me a big kiss, right on the lips.... YEah, Baby! wink...:lol:
7.) My Chocolate pie( momma's Recipe) won first place one year at the County Fair.. That pie is delicious. The recipe is on my Mommas Cookbook blog.. Check it out....

It's supposed to sleet this evening. They just let the kids out of school early, So that means we'll probably be couped up all weekend.. Look for my Cabin Fever blog sometime soon..

Have a great weekend.
Bunches of hugs!
The seven that I choose are :

Hi Mississippi Songbird,
That was so nice to know more about you. I love the revelations you made. You become more human to me. I could imagine you being so nervous in that hot air balloon. Who wouldn't be? They look so flimsy. You made me laugh when I read that you kissed a band leader on the lips backstage. Wheeeew! Well, that's the nice things about tags. But I really don't do tags, memes and awards. They're not for me. He, he, he, *lol* Bye now. God bless you and your family always.

That's a good meme! I love chocolate pie too (homemade) although I can't make it worth a flip! I leave that one to my Sis..:) But I might give it another shot and try your Mom's recipe.

I've already done a meme, but maybe I can come up with another few things to tell. It will take me the weekend though.

I'll be back posting at some point today, this afternoon. I've been sick all week, I don't know if I have a virus (my youngest granddaughter has had it off and on) or if I'm getting an ulcer. Probably both. lol

I'll also be adding more blogs within the next few days, I wanted to group them differently in my BlogRoll.

Take care!

Good Morning Stephanie,
"THANK YOU" for taking the time to do the Meme. I really enjoyed reading it. I can't beleive you got to sing with Jeanie C. Riley. That is so awesome. And I so remember the Little River Band. That was one of my favorite groups back then. And to think you got to kiss Glenn Shorrock. If that had of been me, my lips would never have been washed again. LOL. I will have to check out your Chocolate Pie recipe. I seen on t.v. yesterday where yall were under different kinds of warnings and advisories. We are under a freezing rain advisory this morning. I didn't see anything on the radar tho. My youngest daughter just called me from my Mom's house. My Parents live about 12 miles from us in another town. My daughter said they have black ice there, but I looked out my front door and couldn't see anything. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

How bad did it get at your place. Last yesterday, the roads were already iced over. I thought of you wondering if it was bad there. I know they said north of us is where it really got bad. Girl, we have got to put our heads together and get spring here Okay, I have already done the meme one time, but being the interesting person that I am(haha) I did it again. Hope I don't shock everyone to Some very interesting things about you. Sooo, what did you sing with Jeanie? Come on, don't leave me hanging. Hope you and yours have a blessed weekend.

We have some experiences in common, Stephanie, but I've never kissed the lead singer of the Little River Band. ;-)
