Gee Whiz!

This week in honor of her participation in the Summer Thoughts A – Z Challenge, and the fact that the letter of the day is *G*, Beth made today’s Top 10 List a celebration of glorious gewgaws and gadgets that begin with the letter G. She'd be gratified if you would create your own list, link up and join in!
This is a Blog Hop! 2 entries so far... you're next!

My favorite G-things, in no particular order:

1. Giraffe.  I think I am jealous of their long-legged grace.

The long necks.....not so much.

2.  Granddaughters.  I could go on and on here, but I've been warned by Ellen not to be one of those grandmas.

3.  Golden Gahrams.  Outrageously delicious with fresh picked blueberries.

4.  Goldfish.  The kind you eat.

And the kind you don't.

5.  Genealogy.  I love digging into the past and finding out all the little bits that have come together to make me who I am.

6.  God.  Duh!  None of it matters without Him.

7.  Ghosts and goblins.  A good innocent scare (not the extreme violence of modern horror films) is fun.  I like Trick or Treat and innocent Halloween activities.  I like campy movies like Hocus Pokus and Saturday the 14th.  The ghost hunter shows on TV crack me up when they are all screaming "Did you hear that??"  I never hear anything.

8.  Gentlemen.  There are far too few men around these days that know what it means to be a gentleman and put the knowledge into action.  My personal favorite....

What?  You know I sneak him in wherever I can.

9.  Gratefulness.  It seems like when my attitude is one of gratefulness everything about life seems better.  And I like being around grateful people.  They are such a nice change from our society's tendency for people to think everything is owed to them just because they exist.

10.  Gloves.  I'd hate to think what my hands would look like after a summer of gardening without them.

These really are my gloves.  Well, not MINE, but the same kind.  They are made of bamboo fiber and coated in rubber to protect your hands.  They are the best glove I've ever found for gardening.

Love your list. And the fact that you snuck Toby in even though he's not a *G* though I'm sure ... being from Oklahoma ... that he IS a gentleman! :)

Sherrie said...

Your list is great and I love those gloves. Also love Golden Grahams. Have a great day!

Food for Thought

Love your answers, Stacy!
The picture of the goldfish (the real little guy)is too cute.

And I thought you managed to sneak Toby in real well!;)


Stacy Lynn said...

Beth...are you insinuating the men are better in Oklahoma? ;)

Sherrie...Hi and thanks for visiting! Those gloves are a dream.

Cheryl...I'm admiring that fishy little guy, too. Mainly because I seem to have a continuing problem with cloudy water in my fish pond and can't see my fish. And thank you...I've gotten rather creative about sneaking Toby in there. It's kind of gotten to be a challenge.

Ellen Stewart (aka Ellie/El/e/Mrs. Seaman) said...

Thank you for heeding my warning.

I can't wait to be a gramma, being a step-gramma doesn't count in my case since I don't see the kids, so I get your joy.

But too many of my friends turned into blubbering fools about their grandkids--much more than when they became parents.

;) You so far, have held the blubbering at bay! Good work, and keep loving her to pieces! Can't say I'm blame you.

Stacy Lynn said...

Ellen...I aim to please my readers. ;) I know what you mean, though. I work with a woman who is constantly shoving pictures of her grandkids in everyone's faces and she thinks I'm a horrible grandmother because I don't. Please. I just realize no one is as enchanted with your grandkids as you are.
