Blog Posts I Have Loved

7 Feb

I saw this on Musing‘s blog and had to share it with you:

I meant to post it days ago but I forgot.

As I have lifted one item from another blog, I might as well compound my crime by sharing this, which had me laughing out loud, and not just in a polite lol way.  It’s too good a story not to share.

Vivinfrance wrote an interesting piece about haggis; this was one of the comments, from The Poet’s Quill.

I’ve never been anywhere where haggis was served. I would love to try it. I’ve had both fried rattlesnake and alligator, of course they are cold-blooded critters, but they were good. We had a difficult time getting a recipe for rattlesnake, but I’ll never forget the recipe we got from a friend’s mother. She was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. My friend said that she would have a recipe if anyone would. This is how she thought they should be prepared.

Cut off the head and discard, the thing still can bite even if it appears dead.
Skin it.
Remove all the intestines.
Cut it into three-inch lengths.
Take the three-inch pieces and flush them down the toilet.

    Thank you for the link, but don’t you just love the blog. Viv is in her seventies, is as feisty as a kitten, and has a vocabulary that keeps me running to the dictionary. For this humble poet, her blog is a must-read every day, and sets the bar for which I strive. If one is interested in poetry at all, check out her wonderful poem,, written as a lover of Robert Burns in his ancient Scottish style; simply amazing. It would be first on my list of blog posts I have loved.

    I am so embarrassed by all this. There’s too much to live up to. If you hover over The Laughing Housewife in my blogroll, “my favourite blogger” will appear. And although a recent acquaintance, Mike Patrick’s blog is up there with the best. So, you see, it’s a mutual admiration society (old song!)

    Thank you for this post.
    I also would like to share something: the part that I love the most about blogging is getting feedback from the readers. I’m actually about to celebrate 1,000 comment so I’d like to invite all of you to drop by and leave me a comment. Share with me the power of sharing.
    Thank you so much!

      Congratulations on reaching one thousand!


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
