Not Bragging On Myself...

Hello, Dear Ones! Hope you've all had a nice weekend. I got a sweet surprise in the paper and wanted to share it with you. We have a very small little branch of the main library that is very close to our house and I pop in from time to time. This time I was looking for gardening books. A young lady met me at the door with a pad and camera and asked if she could interview me and snap my picture. Why sure she could!
As you can tell, I was tinkled pink and was grinning like the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland! I really didn't say but a sentence but she put me in her tiny little article anyway. I was so honored and just wanted to share my joy with you and not so much my silly snap (I've gained 10 pounds this winter!).

If you'd like to see the little article you can click HERE

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

The Cover of The Rolling Stone ( just because it's fun!)

Well, we're big rock singers
We got golden fingers
And we're loved everywhere we go..... (that sounds like us)
We sing about beauty and we sing about truth
At ten-thousand dollars a show..... (right)
We take all kinds of pills that give us all kind of thrills
But the thrill we've never known
Is the thrill that'll gitcha when you get your picture
On the cover of the rollin' stone
(Rollin stone.....) Wanna see my picture on the cover
(Stone.....)Wanna buy five copies for my mother..... (yes)
(Stone.....)Wanna see my smilin' face
On the cover of the rollin' stone.... (that's a very very good idea)
I got a freaky ole lady name a cocaine Katy
Who embroideries on my jeans
I got my poor ole grey haired daddy
Drivin' my limousine
Now it's all designed to blow our minds
But our minds won't really be blown
Like the blow that'll gitcha when you get your picture
On the cover of the rollin' stone
(Rollin stone.....) Wanna see our pictures on the cover
(Stone.....) Wanna buy five copies for our mothers..... (yeah)
(Stone.....) Wanna see my smilin' face
On the cover of the rollin' stone
(talking) Hey, I know how
Rock and roll.....
Ah, that's beautiful
We got a lot of little teenage blue eyed groupies
Who do anything we say
We got a genuine Indian Guru
Who's teaching us a better way
We got all the friends that money can buy
So we never have to be alone
And we keep getting richer but we can't get our picture
On the cover of the rollin' stone
(Rollin stone.....)Wanna see my picture on the cover
(Stone.....) Wanna buy five copies for my mother..... (wa wa)
(Stone.....) Wanna see my smilin' face
On the cover of the rollin' stone
On the cover of the rollin'.......
Stone.....) Wanna see my picture on the cover
(talking) I don't know why we ain't on the cover, Baby....
(Stone.....) Wanna buy five copies for my mother
(talking) We're beautiful subjects....
(Stone.....) Wanna see my smilin' face
(talking) I ain't kiddin', we would make a beautiful cover....
On the cover of the rollin' stone......
(talking) fresh shot, right up front, Man.....
I can see it now, we'
l'll be up in the front....
Smilin', Man......
Ahh, beautiful.......
~ sung by Dr. Hook and The Medicine Show


  1. Well, that was a nice little write up. Ya never know when you're going to get your photo taken, so smile from ear to ear!

  2. Congratulations on making the local news!


  3. Since I work in a library I am thrilled that you use yours and that the local newspaper thought it was worthy of an article! I am so glad you like your little library and that the people there are so nice. It's a great picture of you. I love your smile. Congratulations on making the news!

  4. What a nice write up - you must be thrilled. And you look adorable.

    I remember seeing Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show singing this on Wolfman Jack's Midnight Special on tv back in the 70's. They were wild! What a time that was.

  5. Congratulations, are a new star around your town!

  6. That is sweet. I like stories like that in the paper.
    I have to admit I haven't been to our county library since my daughter was in school. I had a card to the library in Chattanooga but haven't been there in years either. My daughter goes often because they have a lot of things for little children at the one near her. I do read.

  7. You SHOULD brag on yourself! That's a great photo of you and I enjoyed seeing your answer to the question. I think you're a celebrity now!

  8. Congratulations! Such a great photo of you.fondly ~lynne~
