Manic Monday: Bounty

There is nothing that I can say that will give due diligence to the word Bounty as one of my favorite people did. Please check out her post as she is talented beyond the limited words that I can express!

This friend has been mine for almost 15 years and she continues to amaze me as I stand in admiration at her beauty and goodness, inside and out! Here's a small (and silly) tribute to part of my greatest bounty!

Brought together by a silly lie
Atop my baby jeep she did fly
Juniper Take Out kept her busy
Racing on her knees & boxing never left her dizzy
William, Jeremy nor Cache could keep her
Only the swing dancing Idaho boy could but lure
the beautiful, oh so smart and talented Clancy
from then until now and now until the end
my fabulous friend will continue to enhance me!
Hide and seek in the dark, Risk and the wondering jew
Breaking the rules, Chubby sticks and me always loving you!

On the B Side: It's apparent to all that I am not the one with the words; however, I do so love, adore and appreciate my Clancy Pants! I am surrounded by goodness and continue to be blessed by amazing people!

Don't sell yourself short, you most definitely have a way with words and I'm sure that your friend will be touched by your poem and tribute to her.

Having good friends in our lives is definitely one of life's most precious bounties.

I think that these words are brilliant and I'm sure Clancy is very appreciative of such kind words. Nice job.

You demonstrated the word perfectly with your bounteous tribute to a wall loved friend. She is equally lucky to have you in her life.

Awhhh Britta! Clancy is the bestest!

Clancy said...

BRITTA VAUGHAN!!!! Are you kiddin' me!? That was the sweetest thing and totally made my day. I love you so much. I am always amazed what an incredible thing blossomed from a blatant lie! I'm not sure how that's all going to iron out in heaven with the whole "Thou shalt not lie" bit, but in this life, I'm grateful for my moment of dishonesty.

You've always known words, chica. I've never understood that little misconception in your mind! You are incredibly articulate and that was such a sweet poem. I love you so much. You are a jewel in my treasure box. (cheese whiz, cheese whiz, na na na naaa!)

Hi, It's Robin from The Robin's Nest...
I am leaving this message on everyone's blog that signed up for the Stocking Swap.
This is a reminder that everyone needs to send out their stockings to their partners by next Tuesday November 18th. If you have already sent out your stockings please disregard this message and thank you for being so speedy. :)
If anyone is having any trouble sending out their stockings I need to know TODAY. I am very understanding of the tough times some might be going through but do not want to see anyone left out. That would be very sad.
I do hope you all had fun making or buying things for your partners stocking and that maybe some of you made a new friend along the way~♥
Thank you for helping me make this Stocking Swap a success.

Much Love,
Robin

That was cute. I'm just stopping by to say hello, as I've been rather neglectful to my followers lately. Have a great weekend.
