groups & stuff…

groups N stuff...
Before I begin, I gotta say this post was going to be something else but after a heated discussion, today among a certain group am taking a different approach ~ so strap on this might be bumpy if not controversial ride hehe…what surprises me most is a simple question can turn into attacking that person, intimidating and twisting the entire subject matter to the point the question gets lost ~ the controversy is what is the responsibility of store owners to their group members especially one that is very well known and has a huge membership ~ do you leave them hanging after say 3 months with no notice either before disappearing or after, or do you feel that a store owner it is actually none of anyone’s business why you are not in contact as RL is RL and its private ~ very heated discussion in regards to this as there were lines drawn, opinions thrown out to the fact you don’t like it just leave…since I am taking a moment to give my own thoughts as to this that most store owners do take responsibility to the group members by sending out notices before leaving on extended leave or having their assistant be informed as to what is taking place so he or she can answer group members satisfactory and not let the rumor mill start by thinking the worst that the owner just quit SL ~ again just my thoughts on this ~ wonder what any of you think on this subject ♥  Just a reminder if you have not been to Linden’s huge Shop & Hop it is ending tomorrow and the gifts are amazing ~ everything Dena is wearing is from there and it is all FREE ~ just check out the credits to see which store ~ thank you all for the nice comments and I did want to thank Moz especially for telling me about his Father’s New Year tradition ~ going out the back door and entering the front door ~ thank you Moz ♥ till next time remember to take time for a moment to yourself ♥ hugzz

Dena and I…

Besties
Should Old Acquaintance be forgot,
and never thought upon;
The flames of Love extinguished,
and fully past and gone:
Is thy sweet Heart now grown so cold,
that loving Breast of thine;
That thou canst never once reflect
On old long syne.

As Dena and I toast each other to 2019 and sing along to those very words ~ I did a little googling to find out just what that means ~ actually not sure why we sing these words as we never should forget old friends ~ the above lyrics are the ones is a Scottish poem written by Robert Burns in 1788 “The phrase “auld lang syne” literally translates to “old long since,” and basically means, “days gone by.” The original, five-verse version of the poem essentially gets people singing, “lets drink to days gone by”…this was really made famous by Guy Lombardo who performed it on New Year’s Eve from 1939 to 1977 and is the version that is played when the ball drops in Times Square…as well as New Year’s traditions that differ all over the world ~ seems there is a tradition of “first foot” This is the belief that the first person to enter the home on New Year’s Day will be the bringer of good luck for the coming year. Or in the South, the meal for New Year’s day consists of greens, black eye peas, cornbread, and some type of pork ~ wondering what some of your traditions are for the New Year, did you make any resolutions that you would like to share?  Please I would love to know and will post any comments if you like to share with others ~ as Dena and I finish sipping on our champagne we are planning to do some blogs together as always each of us have a huge closet filled ~ stick around and again thank you for taking time to read & follow this blog ~ hugzz ♥♥

This truly is my favorite time of year and Christmas is my favorite holiday…did not matter if I barely had enough money to buy gifts or all that overtime made buying gifts easier I still love this holiday ~ for me with Christmas its the feeling you get by listening to Christmas carols, watching all those sappy Christmas movies like “Its a Wonderful Life” w/Jimmy Stewart that I end up bawling over even if I have never missed a year watching that movie…today am sitting with my tablet not even feeling the snow start falling, watching Pentatonix YouTube Christmas videos ~ O M G I am such a fan of their talents, the music and the voices that make up this group ~ they have a new Christmas album called Where are you Christmas ~ for those that might not be in the know of this group they are an Accapella group that I first saw on the reality show “The Sing-Off“, have been a fan ever since ♥  Guess, I should get up and go inside before I am covered in snow as now it is really coming down.  Today will start wrapping pressies in RL and sorting out more of my inventory from all the advents, hunts that I have done and the boxes are still cluttering up my inventory ~ It is hard to personally thank each and every designer that has given gifts at the Epiphany, Arcade, Gimme Gacha, and from the POE hunt ~ yet I appreciate all the gifts as most designers do truly show off their talents with their gifts ♥♥  what I can do is thank all of my readers ~ ones that take time out to comment and let me know they appreciate my blog as it makes me smile knowing♥ hugzz to all and remember December is the month of giving ~ give someone a smile or a hello today ♥

how did we…

How did we

ummm am not sure how we ended up with packages squished behind our backs, just know bestie Dena and I do get ourselves in some predicaments *giggling* speaking of which, Dena was scrolling through the archives and was mentioning something that I realized her and I have known each other for 3 years ~ WOW that has to be a milestone since I will admit honestly to the fact that I can count on my longtime female friends on one hand…most seem to just fade away or because am not truly known for being politically correct will say what’s on my mind and poof have offended and am off their friends list ~ oh Dena and I have had our ups and downs yet we have survived as truly best friends do ~ we know each others RL history on things, we voice whenever possible because her and I at times will get the giggles and it just doesn’t come across in text that you are laughing so hard or that tone when you go “seriously”…we discovered mesh bodies together that was a totally new experience for both of us since we were so clueless on how to even put it on us hehehe, we can both calm each other down when one of us has screwed up our head or something that we need one another to figure out the answers…same with mesh heads even though Dena did get hers before me and talked me through the process, which I thank her for a lot ~ at times am sure her eyes roll back into her head with my actions or things I have said as again my mouth at times has no filter ~ looking at the above pic am sure we thought we were trying to figure out how to carry all those boxes, or possibly we were just being us in a silly moment that best friends have ~ gotta say am so grateful for her being my bestie and am wishing each of you find or have that bestie to share and make memories in SL ♥♥ till next time be kinder to yourself as you are the most important person in your life…

One second…

One Second

Give me just one second to arrange myself and gather my thoughts ~ its Friday am still dealing in RL with my sinuses that has been ongoing, just not gonna whine but it is draining and not me but we all have stuff that we are dealing with in the RL and try not to let my blogging be affected ~ one of my friends outside of SL is amazed that after 10 years am still coming in here every day ~ thinking even if I was not blogging am almost 99% positive that I would be in SL every day ~ why not?  Especially now with the fact am retired, I have time to really explore and enjoy what Second Life has to offer ~ all the creativity in here amazes me ~ especially how far clothes have come ~ look at this top and panties am wearing from Sn@tch ~ have been such a longtime fan of their clothes and it is always great to see stores that I remember 10 years ago still here and still looking fresh, trendy and very popular ♥  Ivey offers huds with both the Izara Top and That Thong both items are separate I just love mixing and matching giving you an idea of how to wear ~ Sn@tch has a lot to offer, if you have not made it over there you should, what I love is how Ivey has kept the fishing for outfit ongoing ~ along with the Lucky boards and the store is HUGE with a variety of items to appeal to most ~ so grab this TAXI and wander over to Sn@tch taking time to look, fish and along with trying on demos ♥♥ For me am gonna take a short  break then come back with some more great items for you ♥ here is your quote
