...memories...


...two...

...countries...



c'est moi ..












the history of the meme as copied from aunty belle:

MOI done thrown out some tags fer a fun round robin of meme memoirs. Here's the back-story:

The fabulous Meghan tagged me for The Six-Words Meme, which was originally started by Smith Magazine. The history is thus:

Legend has it that Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Last year, SMITH Magazine re-ignited the recountre by asking our readers for their own six-word memoirs. They sent in short life stories in droves, from the bittersweet (“Cursed with cancer, blessed with friends”) and poignant (“I still make coffee for two”) to the inspirational (“Business school? Bah! Pop music? Hurrah”) and hilarious (“I like big butts, can’t lie”).


These here is the rules:
1) Write your own six word memoir.
2) Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
3) Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
4) Tag at least five more blogs with links.
5) Don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.
6) Have fun.


err.... i can't just tag individual bloggers .. never been able to .. but if you would like to do it ..
please do it! i'd love to see what you've come up with. let me know..

your answer to the six-word meme is great. I really liked the pictures.

--> Your answer from my blog: Yes, Halo did well in resisting the cutting urge for two solid months. I think he is growing stronger and more rational. Thanks for the encouragement.

LADY LUXIE said...

" wheeeet wheeew!!" ( that's supposed to be a whistle....course' I've never been a good whistler...and Oh' I'm not really in the habit of whistling at gorgeous ladies..ha!ha!ha!ha!ha!...well..there was this point up to when I was about 14 when I went through an identity crisis and..he! he!..long boring story...

anyways..you look absolutely faaab!! Yaaah! and all the other pics are truly interesting....

( specially the ski-ing pic..that made me smile coz'I will probably never ever ski in this lifetime..which is fine..because I'd just trip all over myself and others and create the most embarrassing havoc for sure..)

....but I like the roaring YOU pic the best!:)

Ruela said...

hey foam!

she said...

this was beautiful and in the context of the rather rough last month you had; even more poignant....your love for your family and your ancestry, the land, both of them, is apparent in what you chose. not just for this meme either. it seems like i met you but its more like a memoir than reality. nice job foamy!!!!!

Middle Ditch said...

Sounds like a lot of fun, but can't take part. :-(

The Lone Beader said...

Good job! I enjoyed the photos you posted, too. :D

Eric R Ström said...

we getting closer
to something
I don't know what

I have published my first feet video now at my blog. I'm a bit shy so I use socks.

I shall immediately change my story to only six words.

foam said...

luxie,
..do tell about your identity crisis..lol..
actually, i can whistle really, really loud. surprises folks. they don't expect it from me.

hey ruela! :)

oh, thank you, she!
and that month .. well, i had fun too..
even though my youngest is still sick.

foam said...

middle ditch ..
oh don't worry about it, lol..
i tag everybody so nobody needs to feel obligated to do it.

LB,
thank you!

eric,
i don't know what we are getting closer to either! .. oh the suspense..;)
and a foot video? what fun..
but you already posted your feet without socks .. so why be shy?

Thanks for sharing. I really enjoyed this post!!

HLiza said...

I love what /t. said:

"does your hubby know what a babe you are?!? hope so!"

You give the meme a different look..and a gorgeous one. I've saved mine..kind of a boring, normal one. Dunno whether I should publish it or not.

ANNA-LYS said...
