My stuff: Lynette

Also, check out Lynette's blog, which she says has helped her stay connected to her friends in Mississippi, so she's not too homesick.

so heavy yes dear camera
because I'm a widow It's better for the environment
keeps me from eating my favorite photo
first piece of jewelry Cowdog Mississippi writers




Lynette explains:

The items start at the top, go l-r, then down a line, etc

1. Rolling bag -- I like to have my stuff with me, but I don't want to lug it around, so I roll it. Everybody at work laughs at me.

2. Ruby Pearl, the yes dear girl -- When my husband and I went out to dinner, I'd ask him to do something, and he would say, 'Yes, dear.' So this is a tribute to him. It says 'Yes, dear' in a lot of different languages.

3. My camera -- I'm addicted to taking pictures.

4. Backscratcher
-- I'm a widow, and I need something to scratch my back.

5. Bus pass --
This is untaxed income! I can use it seven days a week, if I don't forget it. It represents the best public transportation system I've ever experienced.

6. Computer -- When I have my hands on it, I'm not eating anything I don't need to be eating.

7. Picture of Leroy, my late husband -- This picture shows his long ponytail, and it shows him being creative. I couldn't believe he was interested in me. He was so exotic. I was just tickled pink.

8. H necklace -- This is the most expensive piece of jewelry I've ever owned. The H represents my maiden name and my married name, so it ties in my whole family.

9. Cowdog and Turq -- These are two pieces I got from Serendipity, a silent auction at the Mississippi State Hospital. I hovered till I got them.

10. Picture of Willie Morris and Eudora Welty -- I love words, these two Mississippi authors loved words. I couldn't believe it when I had the chance to buy this numbered photo taken by Willie's son, David Rae Morris. It was at the Attic Gallery in Vicksburg. I had to put it on layaway in order to do it.

Thanks, Casey. You're one of my favorite things, too! And my sons Lamont and Leland. Ten is just not a big enough number for someone as blessed as I am, but I understand that it's all you need to fit the template.

I've got to put another comment because I forgot to tell Casey where I got my super silver H necklace. Check it out at Wendy Brandes Jewelry, her beautiful, unique jewelry Web site and/or her highly creative, entertaining and informative blog, Wendy Brandes Jewelry: Wear What You Want. You'll be so glad you looked and either or both!
