Letter Game

Okay, here's a fun game you should play...If you want to play, leave a comment on this post letting me know, and I'll assign you a letter. You post ten things you love that begin with your assigned letter. When people comment on your list, you give them a letter, and the chain continues on and on. My cousin Felicia assigned me the letter S. So here it goes. S's are really hard.

1. Stan - this is my Dad. He is strong, silly with his grandchildren and once wore a banana peel on his head when we went to Wards. He loves, cares for and protects his family. He is a wonderful Dad, Husband and Grandfather.

2. Silence - something I totally enjoy when I have the house to myself. I don't even turn on music.

3. Scrapbooking - my new hobby now that quilting and cross stitching have become very difficult for me.

4. Students - my favorite group of people. They come in all sizes, shapes, colors, intelligence levels and they are just enjoyable to be around.

5. Siblings - I have two. A brother and a sister. They are both younger than me and they mean the world to me. My sister is one of my very best friends. I do not to get see either of them as much as I would like to.

6. Spiral Diner - the Vegan Resturant in Fort Worth. This is a fun little place with a personality all of its own. I like it so much because in the middle of "Cowtown" and "Where the West Begins" along with the "Chisolm Trail" stop we can have a Vegan Resturant.

7. Savannah, GA - We went here for the first time in the summer of 05 and I fell in love with this city. We were only able to spend a day there. I would love to go back for at least a week and I would not mind living there if the opportunity came about.

8. Sonic Drive-In - Even though I do not eat meat anymore I still love Sonic. I love their drinks and there soft-serve ice cream. I love that I can get iced tea all year long not just in the summer.

9. Singing - even though I can not carry a tune in a bucket I still sing in the car and I sing in church. I'm pretty sure God doesn't care that I can't carry a tune in a bucket. I also love to listen to my youngest son sing. He has a beautiful rich deep voice.

10. Shayna - my wonderful niece that is more like a sister than a cousin to my two sons. She is beautiful, talented, confident, smart, sweet and funny. I love her openess and how she embraces life. She is a blessing and I am so lucky that she is a part of my life. I wish I could see her more often than I do.

That is my list it was harder than I thought it would be.

Well, you could have fooled me! I had to think about my list for about 2 days! lol! But what a great list you made!! I would love to go to Savannah. And of course I love Sonic! They don't have cheddar bites here, which is sad...but probably a good thing!

I have never had the cheddar bites maybe we don't have them either. Or if they are fried that is why I wouldn't know I don't eat fried food. I haven't in years. It was hard because I had more than 10 that I could have used.

I did this a few years ago on my blog with the letter B. It is harder than it looks.

I love, love, LOVE Savannah. It's hands down my favorite city in the US. I've been once, and it was love at first sight. If I could live anywhere in the states, that would be it.

And I think you know how I feel about Sonic :)

PennyCandy said...

TC: Savannah is the type of city that just welcomes you from the moment you enter. I loved it. I'm more transplant Yankee moved West than Southern but I could be Southern if I lived in Savannah. On the flip side I do not like Atlanta at all.

Ah yes Sonic I plan to swing in later today for an Ocean Water.

I had at least 3 more I could have put with S.

Bone said...

I love to sing, too. Sometimes I'm silently miffed when I'm riding in the car with someone and they're talking so I can't sing along to the music :)

I can't think of any place here that doesn't have sweet tea year round.

Stan! Best Dad/Pops/GrandDad ever.

NP Diva said...

I feel loved :-D

PennyCandy said...

NP Diva you are loved bunches and bunches.

TC said...

I refuse to call myself a Yankee, and have gotten into hour-long debates with a certain Georgia boy about it ;)

I like Atlanta, but don't ever want to live there. It's a place to visit I believe, but not stay permanently.
