"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

My First Blog Award

I am so thrilled to have received this award from Beth at The Crazy Life of A Bookoholic Mom. Thanks Beth!!!  I started this blog to share all the books I love to read, give my opinions about worldly things and basically keep myself busy.  It has been so much fun, and I am so glad other people like it. (Most of my family doesn't get it :)  Yesterday I received my first cozy advanced copy and this award, it feels like Christmas.

Now I am supposed to tell you 10 things about ME.
1. My family is the most important thing to me.
2. I used to work on a construction crew building houses and pouring concrete.
3. My favorite band of all time is STYX.
4. I love old Christmas movies, (Holiday Inn, The Bells of St. Mary's, The Bishop's Wife, etc)
5.  I used to sew most of my family's clothes and loved to quilt.
6.  My parents used to own a tavern and we lived above it. I went to sleep every night as a teenager listening to the music of the juke box coming up through the floor.
7.  I get claustrophobic in many small places.
8. I am addicted to PACKRAT on FACEBOOK.
9. I am hooked on high school basketball.
10. I survived a horrific accident, was hospitalized for 75 days, and it's a true miracle that I am alive, with only my right side partially paralyzed.
10A. My real name is Lori, but my husband as always called me Dolly and Cas comes from our last name.

I am also supposed to pass this on to 10 other bloggers, but since I am so new to the blogging world I have chosen six, two who have really helped me figure out this blogging thing and four to blogs I have discovered and really enjoy.
2. Wendy at Wendy's Minding Spot 
3. Amanda at A Patchwork of Books 
6. Leslie at Books Anonymous 

I hope you will all enjoy the award as much as I have.

Hi, I came to your blog through Beth's since she gave us both the Sugar Doll Award. congrats to you and I am also a lover of Christmas movies, especially the older ones. Although I think I must include Christmas Vacation. Just a classic. I love your statement about your family not getting it. Mine either. :-)
