My brother, who enjoys being the center of attention, began singing the old Tom T Hall song, "I Like Beer," (does anyone remember it???) the other evening after we enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner at my mother's house. Now he's not much of a singer and his song choice wasn't one of my favorites, but it did make me do some thinking. I know, I know, uh oh, she's thinking, but these are some good thoughts.
Things I Like:
(Yeah, like she's afraid of fish... in an aquarium in Chattanooga... or could it be a ruse to get attention... hmmm...?)
They are funny, funny little people. They make me laugh. They make me proud. They make me happy. I really, really like them. They provide hours of entertainment!
(And this kid, she was supposed to be helping clean her sister's room... hmmm?!? Wearing all the dress up clothes and the magician's top hat really doesn't seem like helping, at all, now does it?)
I like to laugh. I find humor in almost everything... sometimes it's not the most appropriate response, but I can't help it. I think life is funny! It really is. I think my kids do, too! Lead by example, I always say!
Books (That's The Library of Congress & Me in DC in the above photo .)
Books hold the key to information, entertainment, and enjoyment for me. I collect them. I have piles of them stacked around the house. I have bookshelves in most every room of the house. I love to read books.
Travel (My kiddos searching for treasure @ Daytona Beach last Christmas. Did I mention that this photo landed the girls in the local newspaper with a story 'bout not shopping on Christmas??? What can I say, I'm not the only one who thinks they are newsworthy...)
I plan awesome vacations. We go many, many places. We have tons of fun and laugh, alot. We find used music and book stores. I buy books on vacation as souvenirs. We go to bead stores, rock shops, and wherever else we decide to go. We go treasure hunting and look for dinosaur bones. We play and play and play. We also get lost, but we don't fret, we have always found our way home. It's not the destination, its the journey!

I like many other things, too, but they must wait for another post. I must get to sleep, which I also like, to be rested for my day job... and you guessed it, I like it, too.
