Ciao My Dear Friends

Tomorrow I must get up at 3:30 am (isn't it against the law to have to get up that early??) and I am flying off to my vacation. EKKKK! I am SO excited! I will miss my blogging family dearly, but I might have a moment or two to do some visiting while I am on vacation. If not then I will be back on April 9Th.

And I shall leave you with an interview, given to me by the famous Jayman. (There might be just a touch of embellishment here and there in this interview. )

Jayman: Barb, we know that you have such an easy life, so we want to hear about a perfect day to you.

Barb: A perfect day, starts by not being woken by an alarm clock, but rather when I naturally wake up. Make a pot of coffee and sit in my PJ's having great conversation with someone I care about. Get showered and dressed, and head out for the day. Make a stop by the beach and feel the sand between my toesies. Have some wonderful Clam Chowder for lunch, for the afternoon walk around a quaint little town and window shop. Spend the late afternoon watching the beautiful sunset, and end it with a great little dinner and a glass of wine. Then sit for awhile and chat beneath the stars. Ahhhh, that sounds like a perfect day to me.

Jayman: Well that sounds fine and all, but we really want to get a little deeper into knowing you, do you have any scars?

Barb - yes, I do. Many in fact, I was quite a tomboy growing up, so my knees are quite the story of scars and I have chicken pock scares from when I had that, and I can be quite the klutz so I little scars all over my hands. One funny story, and its not even a scar, but I get asked about it all the time, is a strange arrangement of freckles that I have on my right upper arm. People ask me all the time if it is a tattoo. It is just a weird constellation of freckles...I know I got a little off the scar track, but oh well!

Jayman: Uh, that was interesting...on to the next question. What character from a book would you be?

Barb: Oh I love books! My favorite type of book to read are murder/mystery/who done it's. I would want to be the person who solves the case. They get all the clues, come close to death themselves and still manage to solve the case and get the girl.....In my case though, I want the hot ass guy!

Jayman - We all have favorite holidays and among those we have all had a favorite Halloween costume. What is your favorite Halloween costume?

Barb: Oh it has to be when I was a little devil. I had horns, a tail and the cape....I was using the horns to hold up my halo!!!! There is even a picture to prove it!


Jayman : Ok, so we are at our final question of the evening. We want to know the real Barb. We want some juicy details. We want to know about your first kiss.

Barb: Ah, a first kiss is one that is usually never forgotten. It was in spring and the young man's name was Jaime. I was smitten with this young man. We went to high school together and he played the saxophone. We were at his house (his family was like my second family) and we went down by the creek to cool off. We both we kinda flirting, but neither one of us told the other that we like each other. We were sitting on a big rock side - by -side joking around and all of a sudden we looked at each other and bumped noses. We both laughed and then we kissed. I swore that fireworks were going off....On the phone later that night he asked me to be his girl, then two days later dumped me because he said I was a greater kisser, but was too plain to suit his taste in girls....oh well, at least I got a kiss out of it.

Jayman: Barb, thanks for a great interview. We have all gotten to know you a little bit better.

I'm sorry, I tried to leave a comment before you left, but I had trouble leaving one. I guess Blogger was acting up right then. :(
Anyway I hope you're having a wonderful and relaxing trip.
