IT HAS BEEN MY PLEASURE

Dear Followers,

I started blogging back in April. It has had it's ups & downs. I thought that I would never get more then a handful of followers. Look at me now. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am having a blast. It isn't always easy to come up with something to blog about. Since my children are grown I have asked their permission to post pictures of them but got the response of NO! So it's usually Skye my 8 month old Cairn Terrier, Charlie my grand puppy, pictures of the actual sky, scenery from vacation, our house or flowers. Just wait until I get my scanner, maybe you will get some pictures of me before the fat set in! Maybe a few wedding shots too! I really love posting with pictures. I wish that I had the freedom of speech/photo here but I don't and that's okay. I hope that I can continue to give you something interesting to read. I spend my days reading all of your blogs. I almost always will comment if I can. Sometimes the subject is just over my head, yes I am short, and I don't want to make a complete fool of myself.
Thank you for stopping over. I do love and appreciate comments so feel free to leave me one. I don't know all the ropes yet and I can't always reply to your comments but when I can I do.


Sincerely,
Debby

Hey Debby,

I know what you mean! Sometimes it is so hard to think about what to write. My wife usually never has this problem, she always is planning and checking on new subject matter.

She has some good tricks up her sleeve. She subscribes to funny jokes sites, Focus on The Family site, and other sites that email topics one or twice a week. I am not that smart though! LOL....

Can't wait to see the pictures!

Take care and have a Blessed Sunday!

I have to be careful what I write too! But I don't ask permission for pictures unless they are of someone other than my family! My children are grown, but I figure if they get mad, they'll get over it! :) I'm out of town and it's harder to blog because I'm just not good at managing my time! But I love all the friends I've made and really consider you all people I know!

You are so much nicer than me - ha ha.
I don't ask my kids if I can post their pictures - Heck If I take the picture it can go on my blog - ha ha.
I must get that attitude from my mom because she only comes to my blog to steal all the pictures to put in her digital picture frame :D Oh MY!
I just put on my blog what comes into my head or things I want to remember. Sometimes it's boring but oh well.
I really enjoy your blog.

What a nice mom you are - - - you ASKED permission!!!

I didn't - - - I just started posting. If I'd have asked, they'd have said no. But now that I'm already doing it - - - they make jokes about it - - - but I find out that at least three of them check in on my blog from time to time to see what's going on there - - - and NONE of them has ever complained about what I post.

I think secretly, they are PROUD to be on my blog - - - they like me chronicling they antics, since they are PROUD of their antics.

You are more than welcome for all the comments that follow your posts! It is fun and insightful and honestly you just never know what you are going to get when you stop by so it becomes like a surprise each and every day! Thanks for sharing so much of yourself in each and every post!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

well i guess i should have been a good mother and asked permission to put my children and grandchildrens photos on my blog but i didn't. oh well i guess they can sue me. i am careful however to speak kindly of each child!

Sandy said...

I tend to ask for permission AFTER I've posted....with "I can delete it if you'd like." I try to protect as much privacy as possible. I enjoy your pictures and just love Skye!

Caitlin said...

You're so sweet! That's why I keep coming back here! Looking forward to some new photos. :)

Debby, I love reading your blog. You really do well and I look forward to reading many more. I asked my kids if I could post about them also and they acted like I asked them to cut off a body part and mail it to me. So I decided not to push my luck. (I don't want them to not like me!!) Soooo, I am resorting to blogging about my part of life that I am enjoying.... I always enjoy hearing from you on my posts, thanks for commenting my bloggy friend... I'm so glad we've met!!!

Amy said...

I just wanted to stop by and say thanks for all of your kind words. I am glad you found my blog. I hope you had a great weekend.

blueviolet said...

I'm just happy to have met you now. I have to kind of chuckle that your kids won't let you post about them because I never ask my kids. I just do it! LOL Maybe I should be asking! (Mine are 19 and 21)

Michele said...

you are such a sweetheart. this post just proves it more!

Tonja said...

Debby, the rule is :" whomever has the pictures in his/her possession also retains the right to publish them at will. Unless of course they would do damage...embarrasment doesn't count!"

Now, publish whatever you like...you have permission@

Ginny Marie said...

Congratulations on all your followers! I don't come to visit your blog as often as I'd like. Glad you're having so much fun!

I'm glad my kids are too little to have any say over what I post ;)

I am enjoying being one of your recent followers and always smile at your little pooch pictures.

I know what you mean about post over one's head. I often have a hard time commenting on my firehubby's posts!

Keep on blogging :)

kyooty said...

I'm fortunate that my kids are young so I don't ask their permission. I love the Skype stories though :)

Swoozie said...

I really enjoy following your blog! Funny your kids saying NO to posting their pics but I totally understand that! I've got some "rules" I must follow as well, LOL!

Just stopping by to thank you again for the award and to let you know that I just posted my award honorees! It was fun filling it out!

Have a fab Monday!

Sonya said...

I am pretty short too and that is ok!! :)

Together We Save said...

Thanks for stopping by! I just love blogging! I am so glad you love it too.

Holly said...

Glad you enjoy blogging! So do I! You get to meet a lot of interesting people and make great friends!

TJ said...

So I see there is a definite benefit to having children too young to say no! Mine love to see themselves on the blog, and hopefully it stays that way.

I enjoy my time here, I just don't always get to come by as often as I'd like.

Missy said...

I am glad you love blogging!

Heather said...

I love pictures...because I'm nosy like that. I adore the pictures of you little Skye, she is just too cute!

I often stare at the blank blogging screen and scratch my head in confusion not knowing what to write all the time...what else can you really write about but what is going on in your life right?! I always enjoy stoppping by so keep doing what you're doing. :)

jennifer said...

Your blog is a bright spot in the bloggosphere. So glad to be one of your readers!

Noelle said...

I love the kindness I find when I come to your blog. And whenever I see a comment from "Just Breathe" it makes me pause and do exactly that. Thanks for being such a nice addition to the blogosphere :)

Kado! said...

I'm glad you are enjoying blogging! That is what it is all about...right!!?? When it is no longer fun...that is when you should stop! I appreciate all your kind comments! ...maybe your kids would not mind if you use a nick-name for them...that is what I do because the Internet really can be creepy!
take care!

Mara said...

Debby, you keep on writing, we will keep on coming!

Karen said...

I love reading your blog -- and seeing that cute dog of yours. Keep it up!

Thankfully my family allows me to post their photos, but unfortunately I don't live near them, so it comes in fits and starts. My husband on the other hand just refuses photos. He doesn't like to have his taken - but if I get one of him, it's posted!

You always leave a nice comment on my blog and I appreciate it. Always. Thank you!!!
