The Goofy Me

Me as a Blonde

Me as the Easter Bunny

1949 - Richmond, Virginia

Good Old Mud Pies!

Three Evidences That I'm Weird

1. I have never been licensed to drive a car
(sure, it's crippling, but think of the countless lives I've saved!)

2. I have no body piercings - not even my ears

(but I do have a wondrous collection of vintage clip-on earrings)

3. My only career has been as a fulltime homemaker
(hey, with seven children, who had time to work?!?)

"Happiness isn't something you experience;
it's something you remember."

- Oscar Levant
(27 Dec 1906 - 14 Aug 1972)

This quotation courtesy
of The Fayetteville Observer
- 01/23/04

"If you can't annoy somebody with what you
write, I think there's little point in writing."

- Kingsley Amis
(16 Apr 1922 - 22 Oct 1995)

My Mottoes

1. "Nothing ventured, nothing gained"

2. "Don't sweat the small stuff."

3. "Most things are small stuff."

4. "There is never any justification
for rudeness."

5. "Be pleasant if it kills you."

6. "Never slap a man.
If he's a gentleman,
you don't need to.
If he's not a gentleman,
you don't dare to."

7. "You can catch more flies
with honey than with vinegar."

8. "For the sake of posterity,
people should pay at least
much attention to the
selection of their mates as they do
to the breeding of their livestock."

9. "Never nag anyone.
It's generally ineffective,
and simply generates ill will."

10. "Treat others a little better than
you would like to be treated."

11. "Be nice to your children.
They are a precious gift.
Besides, how do you want them
to treat you when you are old?!?"

12. "Love often, love well, and
love unconditionally."

* "Just be good and kind to your children.  Not only are they the future of the world, they're the ones who can sign you into the home."

- Dennis Miller
(b. 3 Nov 1953)

then you'll just have
to be a horrible warning."

- Catherine Aird

are something to do, something to love,
and something to hope for."

- Joseph Addison

This quotation courtesy of
Tuesday, April 15, 2003

of nature that the three things we
crave most in life - happiness, freedom
and peace of mind - are always attained
by giving them to someone else."

My Favorite Scripture

(At this moment in time, of course!)

"Delight thyself also in the Lord;
and he shall give thee
the desires of thine heart."
~ Psalm 37:4

In Isaiah 58:13, "Delighting thyself
in the Lord" is defined as keeping
the Sabbath Day holy.

I must be pretty good at that;
I always seem to get what I want!

This is NOT the same thing as getting what you need! That is predicated on obedience
to an entirely different commandment.
I think I must need a little help in this area...

Another Favorite Scripture

"...I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them."

- 1 Nephi 3: 7

I find this Book of Mormon scripture
extremely comforting.

My Newest Favorite Scriptures

- 06/19/03

"For I am God, and mine arm is not shortened; and I will show miracles, signs, and wonders, unto all those who believe  on my name."

- Doctrine and Covenants 35: 8


"And he that believeth shall be
blest with signs following,
even as it is written."

- Doctrine and Covenants 68: 10

My Least Favorite Things

1. Ridicule
2. Conditional love
3. Feeling stupid or inadequate
4. Unpleasantness and confrontation
5. Blasphemous language
6. Vulgar language
7. Male bashing
8. The downfall of civilization as we know it

"The Worst Things:

To be in bed and sleep not,
To want for one who comes not,
To try and please and please not."

~ F(rancis) Scott (Key) Fitzgerald,
"Egyptian Proverb", quoted in "Note-Books"
(24 Sep 1896 - 21 Dec 1940)

"The consciousness of loving and
being loved brings a warmth
and richness to life that
nothing else can bring."

~ Oscar Wilde
(16 Oct 1854 - 30 Nov 1900)

"As we view the endless course ahead,
the glory and wonder on each succeeding peak seems to swallow up the shadows and sorrows in the valley below."

~ Bruce R. McConkie, April 1980
(29 July 1915 - 19 Apr 1985)

"There is a very fine line between genius and insanity.
I have erased this line."

~ Oscar Levant
(27 Dec 1906 - 14 Aug 1972)

"When I examine myself and my methods
of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge."

~ Albert Einstein
(14 Mar 1879 - 18 Apr 1955)

"Never be discouraged!  If I were sunk in the lowest pit in Nova Scotia, with the Rocky Mountains piled on me, I would hang on, exercise faith, and keep up good courage, and I would come out on top!"

~ Joseph Smith
(23 Dec 1805 - 27 June 1844)

My Favorite Picture

"Save Me"

Norman Rockwell exhibit right here in the

My Favorite Joke

(5 Dec 1830 - 29 Dec 1894)

"You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies,
that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand,
for all that is life."

-- J. Krishnamurti
(11 May 1895 -17 Feb 1986)

This quotation courtesy of Kevin Eikenberry

   “There are far fewer accidents here than we imagine, especially in things that affect us eternally. The hand of God and the path we chose before we came here guide many of our decisions and even many of the seemingly random experiences we have.”

- Betty Eadie, Embraced By The Light, p. 68

"The grateful man sees so much
in the world to be thankful for, and
with him the good outweighs the evil."

~ Joseph F. Smith
(13 Nov 1838 - 19 Nov 1918)

"Absence of gratitude is the mark of the narrow, uneducated mind. It bespeaks a lack of knowledge and the ignorance of self-sufficiency. It expresses itself in ugly egotism and frequently in wanton mischief... Where there is appreciation, there is courtesy, there is concern for the rights and property of others.
Without it there is arrogance and evil."

~ Gordon B. Hinckley, October, 1964
(23 June 1910 - 27 Jan 2008)

"One of the evils of our time is taking for granted so many of the things we enjoy."

- James E. Faust, April, 1990
( 31 July 1920 - 10 Aug 2007)

"Living in thanksgiving daily is a habit that will enrich our lives and the lives of those we love...Those who live in thanksgiving daily have a way of opening their eyes and seeing the wonders and beauties of this world as though seeing them for the first time."

~ Joseph B. Wirthlin,
The Ensign, September, 2001
(b. 11 June 1917)

"Listen to the kindness, spoken softly, Often lost behind the tears,
Place your hand upon my shoulder,
Let it take away my fears."

"It isn't as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don't worry. I say that to myself every morning. It will all work out. If you do your best, it will all work out. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. He will not forsake us....If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we will live worthy of His blessings, He will hear our prayers."

 This is NOT a Cluckmeat,
but it did happen
in my hometown
of Newport News, VA
in the Fall of 2000.

What Is A Cluckmeat?

I had an old friend I hadn't seen in 34
years ask me if my email address,
 was indicative of the fact that possibly
I was in the chicken business. :o)

Actually, it's a pet name my mother
called me when I was a little girl,
roughly translated as "goofbutton" or "nuthead" or "dopebrain"
(which she also used on occasion).
It was a fun, teasing nickname,
never used in a malicious way,
and you could feel the love
in her voice, as in,
"You are SUCH a cluckmeat!"

I like it!

Oh! Carol

(Neil Sedaka)

Oh! Carol, I am but a fool,
Darling, I love you tho' you treat me cruel,
You hurt me and you made me cry,
But if you leave me, I will surely die.

Darling, there will never be another,
'Cause I love you so,
Don't ever leave me,
Say you'll never go.
I will always want you for my sweetheart
No matter what you do
Oh! Carol, I'm so in love with you.

Oh, Carol...

* note --- the Smithsonian has said nothing of the sort, and most likely no one that has ever worked for the Smithsonian has even visited Metalliplasty's' Online Directory.
 I don't think it likely that they would endorse it so favorably, but I am not above shameless tactics to fool...I mean persuade people into visiting my crappy site.
Obviously I don't want anyone to know about this false statement, that's why I made it so hard to read.
