Friends



You are among the people I hold dear. I worry about your children, your uncles, your fathers, husbands, sisters, jobs and life.

There are so many people that tell me that all of you are fake, spoofs of my imagination. As I am sure there are some people that use their words to reinvent themselves, they are not people that I choose to blog with. Until I start to say, well there is _____. She has two kids and lives in _____. She does this and that and volunteers here. She is dealing with her father going through _______. All of a sudden they realize that you aren't just screen names, but real people who do share much of your lives with the rest of us.

The people I blog with are real. They experience real triumphs, pain, frustration, and are part of my life.

I have had the opportunity to get to know some of your fairly well and many of you know me.

I have been thinking and one of these days, there are many of you that I would love to have the opportunity to warm my arms around your neck and give you a big 'ole hug.

I actually begin and end my day with you guys. Even if I don't have time to blog or comment, I check in and make sure all is good in your lives....

I also want you all to know that I appreciate the roles you play in my own life. Encouraging me, stripping me of chicken feathers, and giving me lots 'o hugs (this girl loves hugs).

So, are you saying them aren't chicken feathers in your pic! I'm not a spoof of your imagination. I'm a spook of your imagination! You can live in my imaginary world anyday!

spongy - Nope no chicken feathers. You gave them to Anne to fly with. Thanks for letting me be a part of your imaginary world!!

Enemy of the Republic said...

I know how you feel.

captain corky said...

Very nice! Thank you. I really appreciate your friendship.

Bardouble29 said...

Enemy - I knew you would understand.

Corky - You are welcome.

The Lone Beader said...

What a sweet post. *hugs*

Bardouble29 said...

LB- Thanks and hugs back!

Great post!

I find it funny how people who don't blog just don't get it. There are some that do but they are few.

I couldn't have asked for a better group of friends or place of support that what I have found through blogging.

I have met so many special people and I count myself lucky that you are one of them.

Bardouble29 said...

Whimmy - Thanks and I count myself lucky to have you as a friend too. What you have experienced in your life helps me know that I can get through hard times too.

Kati said...

Barb, just wanted to say... Right back at-cha!!! And, of course, if you're ever up my way, you're more than welcome to stop in & visit!!!

There are so many people that tell me that all of you are fake, spoofs of my imagination.

I've never even thought of it that way. These people that say these things obviously have no idea what sort of waste of a persons time it would be to be a fake-blogger.

Bardouble29 said...

Kati - It is on my list of things to do, to visit Alaska and of course you!!

Orhan Kahn - these are people that do not blog that say these things. I have always told them to start a blog and blog for six months, then come back and tell me what they think of the people they meet.

Chucky said...

You rock!

Nuf said =)

Em said...

Here is one more big hug for you...it is great having you as a blog friend!

Anne said...

I'm pretty sure I'm real. Just because I live somewhere else doesn't mean I don't exist. Still, I'd like to visit Spongy's imaginary world some time, sounds like fun.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to gluing these feathers on. You know, chickens are awkward and comical when they fly. I like that, it makes me laugh. :D

Oh, and your new picture is cute. Hugs.

Jo said...

I have to say, when I first say Spongy walking around here with feathers hanging out everywhere, well I thought he had a little farm issue and hated chickens ... but ah now I know the truth and boy do I feel better!

Bardouble29 said...

Chucky- Back at you my friend.

Em - Thanks and keep those hugs a coming!

Anne- We can visit Spongy's imaginary world together!

And the image of you walking around gluing feathers to you is making me laugh so hard!!!

Jo - I can just picture Spongy walking around with feathers sticking out all overthe place.

Beth said...

I second the emotion. You guys on here are my FRIENDS and I don't care if people think it's wierd!!!

SpongyBones said...

So last night I'm at a bar and I'm talking to this guy. I say to him, "I know this hot woman but she has these feathers sticking out everywhere and I can't really tell for sure" ... imagine the look I got!

Bardouble29 said...

Beth - Let 'em think what they want.

Spongy - You are too funny. I can only imagine the guy trying to figure that one out.

skinnylittleblonde said...

Lol @ Spongy's comments!
I see no feather Bard D! None! Not a One!

Yup, we're very real. And I have to say some of these bloggers aren't just keyboard tapping fools... some, I hold very near & dear, including you!

I don't even go there with other folks, I just flat out call you guys 'my friend.' That way I don't have to deal with the conversation killer & blank stares ;)

Shrink Wrapped Scream said...

OOhhh!!! Exactly. Non-bloggers just don't get it, do they? Big hugs to you, my friend - at least I know you are VERY real. x

susan said...

Oh my...I guess we are all imaginary friends!

I've just installed iStripper, so I can have the sexiest virtual strippers on my taskbar.
