Moi's Meme Memoir

Note: Chaucer on Islam at Back Porch



MOI done thrown out some tags fer a fun round robin of meme memoirs. Here's the back-story:

The fabulous Meghan tagged me for The Six-Words Meme, which was originally started by Smith Magazine. The history is thus:

Legend has it that Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Last year, SMITH Magazine re-ignited the recountre by asking our readers for their own six-word memoirs. They sent in short life stories in droves, from the bittersweet (“Cursed with cancer, blessed with friends”) and poignant (“I still make coffee for two”) to the inspirational (“Business school? Bah! Pop music? Hurrah”) and hilarious (“I like big butts, can’t lie”).


Moi puts her own twist on it--add in art/photos.

Example:





The Apple's bitten. No going back.










Here is my Meme Memoir:

She's Gone. Looked Everywhere. Except Spain














I’m taggin':
Foamy,

Enemy of the Republic

Gypsy

Boney

Lamby

Pete Bogs (Bawgs)

These here is the rules:
1) Write your own six word memoir.
2) Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
3) Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
4) Tag at least five more blogs with links.
5) Don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.
6) Have fun.

I got tagged last week.
Still haven't gotten it done.

Your's needs an explanation...but that would be cheating I suppose.

moi said...

Aunty, that's perfect! Love "Apple's bitten," too. Story oh Moi's life . . .

Can't wait to see what others write. Ah hem, Iamnot: but you'll get to this one, right? Because we're going to be very bossy about it.

boneman said...

well, when it comes to being opinionated, I am a smart feller...yeah, I have an opinion.
When it comes to his computer contraption...dang! I is a dummy.
Got the "meat" done and trying to figure outhow to "link" stuff....

Now, if'n it was "links" well, that would be different....just make 'em with eggs and some hash browns or grits. (and as far as that opinion stuff? I like my grits with a lil butter and some sugar, sugar)

foam said...

yah, already got an idea i think i can work with ..

love your photo..
your statement is kind of cryptic. let's go to spain. it's been a while since i've been there.

Aunty Belle said...

Mean Dovery???!! Welcome to the hollow--hope to see ya aplenty.

Iamnot, get it done--yore public awaits. Mine needs' 'splainin'? Well, the She is Aunty.

Family joke: If Aunty drops off the edge, check villages in Northern Spain.

Moi...hehee...thinkin' of you as Snow White.

Boney? At leastways ya likes grits--that's a fine thang to know.

Foamy, I'm lookin' forward to yores. Ya, let's go to Spain--always a good idea.

boneman said...

even though I quit the hard liqour back in 1990, I need a drink!

(HA!)

Actually, when I hilited and copied your "history" it also hung onto the links.
That was the hardest part...well for an old computer contraption user like me, that is.

So, I think it's done....

Say... isn't that K9's hen over there.... hmmm. I got the links done, but, now I got a hankerin' for some eggs...

Here chicky chicky chicky....
Here chicky chicky chicky....

Gypsy said...

Well Aunty, thankyou for thinking of me for this Meme but since I am also retired (maybe temporarily, haven't decided yet) do you mind if I play here? Here goes.....

"Wrung last drop out of life"

Best I could come up with now that my creative juices have gone and dried up on me.

moi said...

Aunty Belle said...

Gypsy--Shure ya can play here--so pleased to have ya', Sugar Pie--loved your meme, as meme, but, now how does we revive ya??


Moi?? Really? wow--I'se thrilled to have sparked an interest. Always thought of you as able to tame a bunch of irascible dwarfs...heh heh.

Once in awhile, a Prince is a good t hang to have around.

Portugal is near ;)

boneman said...

would you be surprised to find that same model on an etching by what is undoubtably the world's best artist?

Had to scroll down to second to last post to see the original.

Danged dog is so old, though, he may just have been the original model!

(not really)
