Meet Me On Monday!!

Welcome to the 49th 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 Never Growing Old 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!!

Java 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!!

Meet Me On Monday

If you have a question suggestion please email me at: nevergrowingold@hotmail.com and if I use your question I will give you a shout out!  


1.  What feature of the opposite sex do you notice first?

The First thing I notice is the smile.

2.  Do you talk to yourself?

Yes, I talk to myself..answer myself..talk to the wall. Good thing is, I can say I am taliking to one of the furbabies.
See how well he listens to me!

3.  What is your current relationship status?
Married. this is not my first Rodeo but definitely my last. hubby is a great guy and puts up with my nonsense!
We look like grumpy pants! Actually it was 180 degrees that day and we were facing into the sun.

4.  Do you have a garden?
Yes we have a garden but I did not put in veggies in this year. Years ago, we planted herbs and they flourish in our soil. We grow lavender, all types of thyme, rosemary, parsley ( italian and curly), chives, sage and oregano.
This large bush is oregano!

5.  What is your favorite licorice flavor?

My favorite licorice is black but we have strawberry at work and I eat it all the time.

Just saw this urgent post on Brian's Blog..

Please Help Lil Em and Sapphire Avoid a “Cat”astrophe

Adopt Cats, we deserve it!
Please Help Lil Em and Sapphire
We are Lil Em and Sapphire and we were adopted from a rescue group in South Carolina four years ago.  Our owner says she wants to make a lifestyle change and that does not include having kitties anymore.  Guess we were really not REAL members of this family.
Our foster had a vet check us out when the rescue received us back and it was ascertained little Sapphire has an enlarged kidney!  What does that mean?  No one seems to know.  She has no outward signs of any problem and uses the litter box and eats and drinks like a normal kitty.  Me, Lil Em checked out fine.  The vet told us to put Sapphire down, however I am  so attached to my sister.  You see, we’ve been together since the womb.
We know it is nearly impossible to find us a home, given the fact that one of us may be sick.  But we are counting on Brian to do his magic and find just one loving individual out there in the blogosphere who would be willing to put their heart and love out there to keep me and Sapphire together.  I’m afraid our only other option is to put Sapphire to sleep if we are not adopted together given her potential diagnosis.
We are currently loving in a garage in South Carolina where the heat index is very hot, with fans blowing.  We have no other place to go.  We have been with other kitties with no problem whatsoever and even a large chocolate lab who we thought was kinda neat.
Please, will you be that person to open your heart and home to keep me and Sapphire together and help us not to have to make that awful decision for Sapphire???  Please help us get our prayer answered.
If you can help, please let Brian know at brianfrum (at) gmail (dot) com.
Please tell everyone you know and you have permission to copy and paste and cross post often.

PLEASE either put the Meet Me On Monday button in your post or link  your post back to me.  I have found several people just posting the  questions and answers in their post and no one knows that they actually  belong to a meme and linky! 

Meet Me On Monday


1.  What is your favorite yogurt flavor?

My favorite yogurt is Vanilla. Oh, I like all the different flavors, but My favorite is Vanilla.

2.  Ankle or knee socks? and on the same theme, white socks or colored??

I wear tennis shoes every day to work, so I will pick ankle socks as my favorite. I usually wear white socks but I prefer colored, especially during holiday's.

3.  How is the weather right now?

Our weather has been beautiful the last few days, the highs are in the 70's to low 80's. I am a Desert Rat, from Phoenix, so I have never met a high temperature I did not like!

4.  Are you a fast typer?

I am not a typer, rather a hunt-n-pecker! Little did I know when I decided to be a nurse, that I would need typing skills. I think that has been one of the greatest shocks for us 'ole timers!

5.Red or White Wine?


I prefer a good Red in the winter and a grapefruitie (is that a word?)white in the summer.
Since it is almost Summer, I will pick White.
Link up with Java and meet some fellow bloggers!

Summer's Wedding

Salvatore Vuono / FreeDigitalPhotos.net
Last weekend I attend the wedding of Summer and Tarik!  Summer is the eldest of  Wendy ( my birth daughter) and her husband Dave. The wedding was held in Henderson, Nevada at the L.D.S.  Ward on June 3, 2011. 
The most amazing thing about the wedding;  the family planned this wedding in one month. I do not know about you,  but the weddings in our family took one year to save the money to pay for it and make the plans for the wedding and reception.

This was a lovely wedding with about 50 guests followed by a reception which included a light buffet dinner made by the Groom's family!  The bride was beautiful, the groom was beaming and the family members were thrilled at the union of these two young adults!


Time for the Vow's
Introducing the new Mr. and Mrs......
The Brides family!
Proud Mom and Dad with the newlyweds!

The cake was delicious
Make sure you cut it straight!
Yummy Frosting!
