Member of the WordPress Wolfpack and part-time werewolf
Some guys have all the luck…I’m not a member of the wolfpack, nor do I get furry, unless I forget to shave. I do, however, howl at the moon but that’s after I’ve had one too many. My thank you’s to Eric from Hunt For Truth for this nomination.
My 3 World Changing Wishes…
1. I want people to wake up, realize we’re all human, and we’re all in this together.
Look, it’s just like the line at the DMV or at a government center for car tag renewals. You know it’s going to be a long wait. So be prepared and try to get along. We’re all in this for the same type of goal. Completion.
2. We’re the ones running the show and in charge of whether we make or break-our environment.
Personally, I kind of like breathing without struggling for air and not wondering if the water I’m about to drink will commit me to a day spent in the bathroom wailing. Talk about the true meaning of a crap shoot.
3. Learn how to use the green-eyed monster as a personal motivator to make changes within yourself, instead of attacking and tearing down someone’s else’s victories, because you don’t have them.
Every time you do, you’re broadcasting to the world that you’re a spoiled brat with a big entitlement problem. And that isn’t attractive.
Wolves are faithful, loyal, social and honest. Please keep that in mind when awarding this to someone. Members of the WordPress Wolf-pack can hand out the award at their own discretion, new members can hand out the award after they have gotten it themselves or anyone may suggest a person they want to nominate to one of the Wolf-pack members.

7 things about me…
1. I played classical violin for 10 years and bluegrass fiddle for 5. And I couldn’t play a single note today if my life depended on it..
2. I am the eldest of 3 daughters (and am the weirdest one of all)
3. I’ve decided I’m going to be a better blogger. I’m going to learn how to write magnificent blog posts on a stunning array of topics and cause people to weep with joy upon reading them. And mostly because there are no platypus care-tending positions open in my area.
4. I don’t sing in the shower but I do sing-in the car. With all of the windows down and Duck pleading with me to stop singing or put the windows up or both. But I don’t.
5. I still think Fridays nights are for partying even though I don’t and haven’t-for eons. I’m not sure I remember how anymore. I’m not sure knowing that fact bothers me. Nope. It doesn’t.
6.I’m typing this out with a big grin on my face. Too bad you can’t see it. You’ll have to imagine it instead. And then wonder why I’m grinning. But I’ll never tell.
7. Okay, so I’m grinning because I heard the strangled yell of an offended Redneck and the accompanying giggle of a Duck. There’s only 1 reason these 2 sounds would happen simultaneously-and after dinner.
Several time zones and at least one continent away, our favorite would-be writer receives an email from Lady Fury.
Reading it while eating lunch at her desk, CeeLee paused. She wondered aloud about what being jolly had to do with being a lobster.
“The Whut and the whut?”
3 hours later, still at her desk and still in a land far from Lady Fury’s home, CeeLee the So-NOT-A-Spammer was looking through Urban Dictionary. She was pondering the definitions of Jolly and Lobster.
She wondered what the joining of the two words might mean to all of mankind…
“I wonder what this might mean, if Jolly and Lobster were to join forces?”
Was this the intended definition?
When an outcome of a competition is determined by an unexpected crustacean which ultimately shifts the advantage to the victor over a seemingly more qualified competitor.
Jolly (as in just plain-jolly):
To be scared by people several years younger than you.???
She was confused...
The only thoughts to register within her tired brain were odd ones.
“I’m so jolly right now, I’m gonna pop. Lady Fury whacked me with this here Jolly Lobster Award dohickey and I know I’ll choose poorly. I bet I’ll get the only one without the rubber bands around its claws to clamp down on my pinkie and I’ll cry.”
She sighed and made her decision.
“Yeah…I’m doing it CeeLee-style. Hit it!”
The Jolly Lobster Award
For bloggers who enter fully into the fun of blogging.
(Oh, so that’s what it means!)
Many thank you’s go to the lovely Milady Fury from Furious Unravelingsblog for the nomination. She’s really not furious or anything. Quite the cool gal when you get to know her. She’s someone I’m honored to call a friend. She told me to say that. And I did because her temper is-heh. How did I ever get off topic? Because that never happens to me.
Fun lobster fact:
The largest lobster recorded was caught off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada, and weighed 44.4 lbs (20.14 kg); it was between 3 and 4 ft (0.9 to 1.2 m) long. Scientists think it was at least 100 years old.

Questions for My Nominees
1. Is there really a hole at the bottom of the sea?
2. What is your fave sea-creature?
3. Do mermaids exist?
4. Do you have a worst moments sea-side story?
5. What was Captain Hook’s name before he got the hook?
6. How much deeper would the ocean be if sponges didn’t grow in it?
7. What would happen to the sea’s water level if every boat in the World was taken out of the water at the same time?
1 Have you ever written a book involving sea scenes?
(That is sea. Do please make sure there are no typos here). If not why not and do you intend to?
No I haven’t, yet. I just haven’t gotten around to writing a sea scene. If I did, it would go in the book titled,
So You Got Shipwrecked Now What: 101 Ways To Escape An Island.
2 What is your current WIP?
Currently? This blog. Much needs doing and time isn’t my bestie. And well, yes, I’m still trying to get the query/synopsis done on the B-17 Bomber story. I think I need a virtual assistant.
3 Do you have a favorite sea film? And why?
The original version of Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea. I love the thrill that comes from thinking about battling undersea creatures the size of small office buildings.
4 A favorite fish recipe to share?
Beer Battered fish and chips. But I don’t make it, Long John Silver’s does. We’ve found it to be infinitely safer for everyone involved, if I stay away from appliances that involve cooking.
5 Your favourite sea going book?
See the above. Loved Jules Verne.
6 Can you share a fav sea-side memory?
The first time I went crabbing in South Carolina with chicken necks and the crab liked my finger much more than the chicken neck. I think I shattered glass. Or my discovering sand fleas. That was also a loud moment. 😉
7 Most memorable sea-going journey?
None to speak of-yet. It’s on my Bucket List. Located right after getting on a plane and before I publish my first book.
