“Versatile Blogger Award” …WOW!


2014-07-17 12.05.43

I have to send out a giant THANK YOU to Miss Ellie, from New Creation Ministries who bestowed this lovely award on me!!  Ellie is a delightful creature and I have had so much fun conversing with her.  Check out her blog, she writes from her heart and I bet you find something that speaks to you!  Ellie has a new book coming out soon called, “Life’s Too Short to Eat Bad Cheese.”

The rules of the award are to share 7 interesting aspects of my life and to pass the award on to up to 15 other bloggers.


1.   The first vehicle I ever drove was a 1967 International Dump Truck – manual transmission at 9 years old.

2.  I am currently enrolled in a self-hypnosis e-course

3.  I volunteer in the props department for a local theatre.  I have made many interesting props, but my favorite…and most challenging…and time consuming… was vintage Louis Vuitton Luggage for the play “Thoroughly Modern Millie.”  The play traveled to the Paper Mill Playhouse in NJ – so my luggage was in the same play in both states that I live in!

920  919  918

4.  I LOVE to play tennis

5.  I met the Dalhi Lama over 30 years ago.  I mean really met him one on one – face to face.  Too bad I didn’t understand the significance of that back then.

6.  I went sky diving …once.   It was amazing…I wanted to do it more but I thought it was irresponsible because I had a son.

7.  I love to sing and dance

I am passing this award on to (Check these bloggers out!):

Nice post and nice way to know more about your dearest Lorrie… self-hypnosis e-course, volunteer in the props department for a local theatre…t’s sounds very interesting! … and you love to sing and dance… I’m not surprised – I don’t dance, but I love songs and love to sing! Have a nice day,♥♥♥


    1. I know you can dance dearest Fre’de’ric….just move your body to what you feel in your heart!!! Thank you so much….have a super day! ❤ (I love your black hearts 🙂 )


    1. So funny Me’lanie…..I wish I got to keep them….and that they were real!!! It is amazing how “real” a “fake” can look!! Believe it or not it is covered in printed PAPER!!!! 🙂 great day!!


      1. 🙂 thanx, babe! and remember:“A smile is often essential. We are paid by a smile. We are rewarded with a smile…”(Antoine de Saint-Exupéry) smiles are “free”, so let’s smile as often as possible and let’s choose to have wrinkles “caused” by a frank, loving, peaceful smile – universal key that can open even the doors of the heart… ❤

    1. Hey Brad!!! Yes…we will have to choreograph a beautiful dance together….and while I said I like to sing and dance I didn’t say I was very particularly good at either one!!! Love to you ❤ ❤


  2. Hi Lorrie,
    I loved learning more about you today. What a fun post! Let me know how the self-hypnosis class works out.


  3. Congratulations Lorrie and thank you as well!! It is nice to learn a bit more about where you have been and where you are now. And I too did not appreciate the significance when I saw the Dalai Lama 10 years ago (although I was not so blessed as to meet him face to face!).


    1. Hey Lisa…I was so young. I worked for a municipality where he was visiting. They made it a very big deal but I was just a dumb kid…I bowed to him…he bowed back. End of meeting. Thanks for visiting 🙂
