For your jaw-dropping, eyeball popping pleasures, here are some secret snippets of Simply Darlene…

.

  • I’m vertically challenged, over a foot shorter than my tall man.
  •  Grace is not my middle name.
  • Apparently my kin think I’m built like a brick outhouse.
  • On that note, I was asked to join the football team in my high school daze.
  • I grind my teeth, clench my fists, and don’t own a single pair of nylons.
  • If someone is gonna beat around the bush, it ain’t gonna be me.
  • My son has been known to compare his hairy legs to mine.
  • Low-cut (aka bun-baring) Wranglers ought to be outlawed. (or at least come with a free pair of suspenders)
  • If I wanna bath in a tub, I’ve gotta fill a horse trough in the morning and soak by moonlight that night. (outside, under the stars)
  • James Herriot, Patrick McManus, & Erma Bombeck are the only literary giants in my house – I love to read ’em aloud and laugh ’til tears and snot run free.
  • My recurve bow came in yesterday and my arm got spanked twice while shooting because I held the bow wrong – and I near about had pee running free. (remember that whole “Grace” thing from above? yikes.)

.

God made me in His image.

And for that matter, that’s how He made you too.

.

Does this scare you?

Or does it flat out knock off your stinky ole socks?

Country Girl Nugget O’ Wisdom for the day:

Rather than bemoan who you aren’t,

take a right tight grip

on who you are –

and go forth in

your own

(peculiar, weird, oddball, goofy, hairy, uncoordinated)

style!

Yeeeehhhaaaaawwwwww!

    Oh friend, I love you just the way you are – and, no, none of that surprises. It simply delights. I’m trying to learn to be just as comfortable in my sandals as you are in your boots.

    • sandals or boots or high-heels, i reckon it’s about being comfortable in our own skin, aye?

      also, thanks for the love!

  2. Really? You’re not a beat-around-the-bush kinda gal? I’m shocked! shocked! to learn this about you.

    And quirky. I’m all about being quirky. Blessings to you and your big, old hairy legs!

    • elevate your feet… it ought to help with the shock.

      and hey, i never said anything about “big” hairy legs. a girl could take offense to that. or not.

      😉

    • Heya miss M – yep. It’s downy soft -n- blonde. Apparently he gets his height from his pa and his hair features from me.

    This made me so happy, you have no idea. 🙂
    p.s. if I had a horse trough, I would fill it and bathe in the starlight. But I don’t. Instead, I run off down the creek in the gulf. It’s usually icy cold but so beautiful I bask in wonder.

    • Miss Natasha – I’m glad you wear a happy face ’round these parts. Cheers to bathing. And to God’s starlight wonder!

    Hooray for James Herriot & Patrick McManus (We have all of his books.) Haven.t read Erma for awhile but loved her when I did. I KNEW you were a kindred spirit!

    • the comment fairies musta ate my first reply…

      yes, we are kindred spirits – i knew it the first time i met ya and then again the 2nd time when we played those silly new year’s eve games!

  5. That’s a dern good nugget o’ wisdom (I think I pick up your vernacular when I hang out with you). Fun stuff 🙂

If you have somethin' to say, I reckon this is where you should do it. (If you're a newbie hereabouts, your first comment will be held for approval - cuts down on spam.) Thank ye for chatting!
