Y'all come on in!

Y'all come on in!

Friday, December 4, 2015


So I found this little survey on FB and it made me both giggle and delighted me because under books the sweet lady had written "Anything by Carolyn Brown." Now that is an ego boost for sure, let me tell you! But anyway I decided to take the survey and here's the results:

➖Snuck out: No, ma'am. I was more afraid of my mama than Lucifer.
➖Broken a bone: You betcha. Mr. B. moved about a pint of air from the living room to the kitchen several years ago and I stumbled over it. My arm thought it could support me...it's not real smart! So it popped right out there and attempted to keep me from hitting my head and I wound up with a compound fracture!
➖Cried myself to sleep: Yes, I have. The first time I remember was when Mama said I could not go to the ROTC ball at Murray State College. I was devastated because I really, really liked that college boy who asked me. The last time was when they called me and said my sister had passed away suddenly as in talking one minute, falling and being gone the next. I cried until there were no tears and then cried some more. I don't remember sleeping that night at all.
➖Been arrested: No, but only because I didn't get caught.
➖Felt lonely: Few times especially the year that both my daughters got married the same summer and I had a bout of acute empty nest syndrome. And then for a year after my precious sister passed away, I felt lonely. She was my best friend and we told each other everything. I still miss her.
➖Been depressed: Not very often
➖Birthday: My birthday is 10/22/48. I don't mind telling my age but only God and my primary physician's nurse know my weight and the nurse has signed an affidavit in blood that she will never tell Mr. B.

➖Dream job: Exactly what I'm doing right now, writing full time
➖Dream car: I have two dream cars. I want a 1963 Corvette and a 1959 Cadillac Convertible
➖Dream house: a cabin on a lake
➖Like someone: oh, yes
➖Love someone: For the past 49 years I've not only loved Mr. B but been in love with him. That does not mean I like him every single minute of every day but I've never stopped loving him.
➖Have tattoos: I hate needles. I mean I REALLY REALLY HATE them.
➖Have piercings: Refer to the above
➖Party: If that means treating my self to an extra Diet Coke and watching a movie while reclined back in my favorite recliner, then yes, I do party.
➖Artist: Probably Thomas Kincaid
➖Movie: Steel Magnolias
➖Song: That changes by the hour but I will always love "Crazy" by Patsy Cline
➖Netflix series: Don't use Netflix but I do like Justified
➖Book: I have two...my Bible and Gone With the Wind
➖Color: Red

So there you go, folks! How many things did I tell you that surprised you?
