It is great to be because I live in a country where you can practice your Religion (whatever it may be) and go to through any Church door you choose.

It is great to be me to have two wonderful friends, Carol and Pammie Pooh, to have girl days to act silly and laugh like teeny boppers.
It is great to be me to have unconditional love of a pet. Maggie is the best.

It is great to be me to have LPC as my oldest and dearest friend.

It is great to be me to sip my morning coffee and watch the world come alive from the hill.

I would be remiss if I did not say it is great to be me to take a blank canvas and have the talent to make it come alive. I wish to Thank all my teachers, Juanita Green Parks, Gus Baker, John Kiser, Paul Ziplinsky and last but not least Hazel Crye King.
There are so many reason it is great to be me that I chose only to list the ones above. Mary at Mary Writing Nook tagged me on a meme and if you wish to play go for it.
I am not Toby Keith and want to talk about me. I would rather read about you or listen to you talk to me . Mother always said "You learn when you listen not when you talk." I would rather read about daily life somewhere else and trips and stories of your experience. Mary and Corn Dog have a special knack of writing about by gone days. Marcel and Jerry are great photographers and can spin a good tale also. Merle and Jen with their yarns keep me laughing. Deena and Susie keep me "prop up with their fortitude" Monica just makes me happy with her sense of style. Those who are not blogging now such as Lee leaves a blank page in my soul.
The Kitty Justice is it is great being me, I just don not like to talk about it. BY THE WAY WHO ELSE WOULD I BE ?

Lady Di,

I am glad you did the meme and talked about you. I enjoyed learning more about you.

I also don't like to talk about me, but the meme made me think about who I am and what makes me, me. We both have much to be thankful for. I loved your photos and especially one of the scene you see from your window as you drink your coffee. I love Tennessee. It is one of my favorite places. I'm hoping we can come this fall to see the Smokies in all of their autumn glory. I was there once in the late 70s and would love to experience it again.

Take care, dear friend. I just loved this and am so glad I tagged you.

I enjoyed reading it too. You are right it is great to live in a country where we have the freedom to worship and do other things that many people of the world don’t have. Like you I love silly friends. I think that is why I have been married to the same silly person for so long, it’s because she is my best friend too.

I liked you photos and only wish I was a good photographer. Sometimes I get lucky. I look forward to seeing more photos from your part of the world and more paintings too.

Dear Lady Di ~~ What a great post and it is so good that you are happy with your life. Well done my friend. I agree about memes, we learn more by listening, not talking. Or in our case, reading!!! Thank you for your nice comments about my blog. I have a
birthday book with some blogger friend's birthdays in and like to wish them a happy day. Take care, Di
and have a great week ahead.
Love, Merle.
