Ooops……………that’s not the logo!
Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog
Answer the questions of the one who nominated you
Would any of you be willing to let a slightly pissed off red squirrel and her children rent a room? The sooner the better, I’m getting hateful looks.
-You wanted to be Marlin Perkins and have the Wild Kingdom. You get to keep her now. She’s Queen of that Kingdom. LOL Just think of the rewards when all the next generations keep coming to visit you!!
If you could change one thing about your spouse/partner/significant other/blow up girlfriend what would it be, and why?
-I don’t have a blow up girlfriend. I think you are thinking of my ex husband.
Can you talk me into eating kale in 50 words or less? I know you can’t, but it will be fun to see you try.
Hearty Kale Vegetable Soup
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 large red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup carrots, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups red potatoes, peeled and diced

4 to 6 cups low-sodium chicken stock
salt, pepper to taste
1 Tbsp sherry vinegar or wine vinegar
1 Tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
1. Heat olive oil in a heavy-bottomed pan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook 5 to 7 minutes until lightly browned. Add red bell pepper, carrots, and garlic; saute 5 minutes.
2. Reduce heat to medium. Add potatoes, kale, beans, tomatoes, chicken stock, salt, and pepper; simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.

(And I didn’t use any of MY words for this one!!!!!)
You win an all expense paid trip for two to Antarctica, do you bring a Kardashian or Caitlyn Jenner?
-Depends on which one talks less and sleeps a lot. (shudders) Couldn’t you have said Johnny Depp or this really good looking guy that comes in to my work??????
By some strange twist of fate, you’re elected President of the United States in 2020. What’s your first executive order?
-Make you my vice president in charge of making alcoholic type drinks for us all day long. A six figure salary, a Lincoln town car because they ride so smooth you wouldn’t spill a DROP, and you can nominate your OWN assistant.
And finally, if you’ve made it this far…. why do bloggers feel compelled to keep this award thing going when none of us really like them?
-Because some of the questions can be SUCH fun and we can share recipes!! Are you not so happy you shared with me?? Now you have to try that soup!!!!
Nominate some bloggers

Ask them seven questions
1.) What are some of your guilty pleasures that you’re willing to admit?
2.) As of right now, if you were to die, what would you leave me in your last will and testament? Why or why not?
3.) Would you be willing to take on River’s Mad Momma Squirrel and her passel of babies? She would deliver.
4.) If I were to summon you via black magic, which 5 items would I need in each corner of the pentagram? No goats allowed.
5.) If you were a flavor, what would you be? And why?
6.) When you poop in a public toilet do you hover, build a nest, or just sit down?( I actually answered this one on a radio call in. What was my answer? I blogged it)
7.) If someone was filming your life up to this point, what would be on the soundtrack and what is the title?
Now off you go little ones! Fly free and answer with wild abandon! Make us laugh, make us giggle, keep us awake with yet another award nomination!!! I’ve had my quota of those for the 5 year term so GOOD LUCK MY LOVELIES!!
