Meet Me On Monday hosted by Java


Meet Me on Monday!!

Welcome to the 20th edition of 
"Meet Me On Monday!"

Blogging is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is this person!?"  I know them...but yet I don't know them!  I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to "meet" each other!

Every Sunday I will post five get to know you questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!

"Its a great way to to meet new friends and for others to get to know me Monday at a time!!!" quoted by the Chacogirl!! I will make this SIMPLE and FUN!!!

I will add a linky so we can follow who participates and get to know them better!!  Be sure to link the POST and not just your whole blog!

    Here's my answers
    1. Have you ever been on a cruise? no
    2. What is your favorite way to eat eggs? scrambled
    3. What is your favorite reading material? books
    4. Name all the pets that you have ever had? too many to name. Fav was a lizard named Sylvester.
    5. Were you ever a girl/boy scout? Girl scout for a couple weeks

  4. I agree with you on the eggs! BTW, A Dog's Purpose is an awesome read! I read it rather quickly and be prepared to cry!


  5. @Jacalyn, I have heard it is a tear- jerker. I have been having a hard time getting through the Cure, probably because I spend too much time here on my 'puter!


  6. I'm reading a Robin Cook novel at the moment too, Seizure. He's pretty good with these medically based stories.
    I love the photos of your cats. I can't get over their beautiful colour. It's almost like the colour of chocolate & caramel!

  7. Good morning Shawn,

    Those were enjoyable answers. I'm with you about the eggs, I can eat them just about anyway they are fixed.

    In answer to your question about the pickled eggs, it couldn't be easier, boil them, drop them into some pickled red beet juice, and thats it. I always put the sliced red beets on top of the eggs and juice to hold the eggs down, and it also gives the red beets a slight egg taste. Put them in the refrig. overnight and enjoy. BTW, they store very well for two or three weeks in the refrig. I just did up a dozen eggs this way on Saturday, I used two jars of 16 oz. red beets and the juice.

    Enjoy your day....

  8. You just reminded me that we had a German Shepherd named Bandit. Good grief, so far I've forgotten him and my parakeet AND the parakeet's name...LOL Oh shoot! And Princess, another German shepherd mix. Wow, this whole age thing is not easy on the memory!

  9. Following you back. I hope you get to take your Christmas cruise. That would be different for sure. Hopefully, you won't need the life preserver.LOL
