I've Been Tagged

Tink over at My Mobile Adventures, who doesn't blog on Thursdays but wrote it on Tuesday to post today (got that?) was catching up on a lot of memes from people who had tagged her. And, as you are supposed to do with a meme, she tagged some of us who read her blog--like Gayle and Tootie and Chris. Actually she tagged me with one of the easier memes. Six Things That Make Me Happy. I think I can do that. Let's see-----

Six Things That Make Me Happy
1. Looking at pictures of my grandkids. Since I don't get to see the kids all that often, pictures have to do. How can you not be happy when looking at pictures like the one of Ethan above?
2. Being able to live in Paradise. We have been fortunate enough to call Sanibel our part time home for about 10 years now. We became residents a couple of years ago so I guess it is our full time home with summers spent in Ohio.
3. Being able to work in the wildlife clinic. It doesn't matter if it is cleaning poopy cages, making diets, washing the floor, doing laundry, or holding a patient while they get their meds. I love it.
4. Meeting friends face to face who I have only corresponded with through blogs or emails. This is the way the Crawlers was "born". I have met Tootie, Gary, and Tink. I also got to meet Gail this week. We met on a message board. I'm looking forward to meeting more friends face to face also.
5. Walking to beach looking for shells. Mr. Snowbird isn't into shells at all so I go by myself. I really enjoy just being by myself, looking for the next great find, listening to to waves, and looking at the birds and dolphins.
6. Doing lunch with friends. Besides the crawlers I often go to lunch with my friend, Diana, or other friends. In fact I have to wrap this up as I'm heading to Amy's Over Easy--oops, I guess it is just the Over Easy now--to meet my friend Carol for lunch. That is if this massive rain storm we are having ever lets up enough for me to get to the car!

Anyway, that's my Six Things That Make Me Happy. And guess what--I'm not going to tag anyone but if any of you are so inclined and can't think of anything to blog about, you might try this one. It was kinda fun.

That is the most adorable photo. I smiled instantly. Living in paradise is everyone's dream...I'm so glad you are enjoying it. I clean up enough poop around here, I don't think I'd want to volunteer to do it somewhere else. I'd love to meet all of your someday. Lunch is so fun, but I have small children so I do not go to restaurants very often. I love the smell of rain! Hope you have a fantastic day!

The photo of Ethan is so so cute! Of course, from the photos I've seen, he is still a major cutie.

It was great to meet you and I hope to see you Sunday, and also on my next visits here -- this whole cyber-friends thing is pretty cool. I wish I could have met Tink, too, but I am still looking forward to meeting Tootie and Gary. This has been a better than usual trip for me. Even though the shells haven't been worth mention!

What an adorable photo! I also love it when toddlers wear their underpants on their heads as 'hats'. It makes me laugh every time!

Ethan's got that look on his face - "ok, I feel dumb, but they all say I'm cute, so I'll just sit here, being cute..."

You did a splendid job on the tag!
