I saw this at Os's place and wanted to play. Let me know if you want to play!

This is how it works: Comment on this entry and I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter in your journal, including an explanation of what the word means to you and why, and then pass out letters to those who want to play along.

Diamonds ~ Beautiful sparkly glistening stones. I love them. I don't think a girl can ever have too many of these little (or big) gems!

Darbi ~ My little girl cat. Well, she is not really little, but she is mine. She has a beautiful coat, grey, sable, white with a touch of tan and a little bit of black. It is amazing that she has so much beautiful color now. When I first got her, she was about 4 weeks old and very tiny. She was solid white with crystal blue eyes. She was so tiny that I had to bottle feed her. She gradually changed colors, but she still has her beautiful blue eyes. She is now 9 years old, and my sweet little friend.

Dog ~ I love dogs too. I grew up having a dog, but it has been a long time since I have had one. I have wanted a blonde Golden Retriever as long as I can remember. Boyfriend had a beautiful "red" Golden Retriever named Sam. Sam was a good dog, sweet and loyal. He used to go canoeing with us. We miss him very much.

Donkey ~ I have actually seen a donkey in person. A couple years ago, Boyfriend and I went to a remote place shopping for canoes. As we were leaving the little store, we saw a pasture that was fenced. There were donkeys in the pasture. I was so amazed, I got him to stop so we could take pictures. Cool, huh?

Dariere ~ I like this word. I am not sure of the correct spelling but I am referring to my backside. I haven't seen it too much, but others have. Now I do see other's but not my own. The thing I like about it is that it gives me some cushion when I sit *giggle*.

Dang ~ I am not one to curse (well, almost never). I think everyone needs an explosive word and this is the one I use. I just don't like hearing a lady sound like a sailor, so I choose the word "dang" instead of an alternative curse word. (ok, maybe I should use the word "dork" here!)

Delicious ~ Mostly, I think this word means pleasing to the taste. It could also have other connotations. For instance, when I see a man with a nice smile or nice eyes, or a really nice set of shoulders and arms....that is delicious.

Donuts ~ A donut is a round fried doughy pastrylike food. Sometimes they have a hole in them or they are filled with jelly or cream. They are very tasty, but they give me heartburn, so I don't eat them very often. Plus they are fairly fattening!

Dad ~ The man that raised me, gave me love and guidance throughout my years. He and my mom have been married 56 years. They just moved to Birmingham from Sarasota a few weeks ago. It is great to have them close by.

Dragon ~ Every Castle needs one. The Protector in my moat!


Mr. Althouse said...

OK, hit me... I'll play. It sounds kinda fun.

Lee Ann said...

Mike ~ first player!
Ok, you will be Letter "G".
Have a great day!

AndyW said...

This seems like a lot of work for a Monday morning but I'm in.
Give me a letter.

hotboy said...

I'd be amazed if you hadn't seen a donkey! Anyway, I'm too much of a donkey myself to play that game. It amazes Europeans that most Americans don't have passports. Tons of donkeys in Southern Europe and N. Africa. Have you never been abroad? They must have donkeys in Mexico! Hotboy

Lee Ann said...

Andy ~ Ok, just work on it when you can... You can have "R"!
Thanks for playing sweetie.

Hotboy ~ I have never been abroad, but I would love to visit your area, UK, Scotland, Africa and Italy. Maybe one day! I have been to Mexico, but did not see any donkeys there! :)

Dave Morris said...

I will pass on this game, for two reasons. One, you would probably assign me a letter like Z. Two, I am nearly illiterate.

But I had a blast reading yours! Thanks for so accurately describing me under "delicious." ;)

Shannon said...

I would play but I have too much going on at the moment.. =(

I enjoyed yours thou!!

truckdriver_sefl said...

Thats very cool LeeAnn!! I think I will pass because I think I may "pass" out! I just got back from my first ever root canal:-{

The good news is the rest of the week will for sure get better!!!

Osbasso said...

Nicely done dear! Though I'm thinking we need a picture of the derrière. I don't recall ever getting to see it (sounds like a good anonymous pic!)

angel, jr. said...

Hi, donuts, dad, delicious and dragons. Very great D words.
Hit me with a letter.

Lee Ann said...

Dave ~ That's ok, I know you are not illiterate...I still love ya. Oh, I was talking about you! ;)

Shannon ~ I know you are busy with is that going? Glad you could stop over for a tea! (or coffee)

Trucker ~ Gosh, I feel for you. I have had a few root canals. They are terrible. I hope you do ok with it. Have a better week cutie.

Os ~ Derrière, so that is how you spell it! I did look for the correct spelling, just could not find it. Have you ever tried looking up synonyms for your backside? There is not a match for any of the words I could think of. Haha! There are two HNT partial side shots of my backside, no full moon though! :)

Angel ~ Ok, Angel, you can have letter "M"! I am glad you can play.

Saur♥Kraut said...

Well, (not to rain on your parade) but I boycott diamonds. If you want to know why, you can read about it here (no, I'm not some raging hippie chick). ;o)

Whenever I hear the word derriere I think of my ballet teacher when I was 5. I had to ask what it meant, and I always associate the word with leotards, tights, little pink ballet slippers, and the ballet barre. ;o)

Bathroom Hippo said...

I thought this post was about the policies of the Canadian government towards the treatment of American cattle.

With your help we can put an end to cattle abuse, and fire up some 1 pounders on my new propane grill. I tell you 'whot'.

Henri Banks said...

can i have a letter to !

Lee Ann said...

Saur ~ I know...I seem to remember that you had posted something about diamonds a while back. Did you? I just can't help myself! I see the sparkle of the diamond and it just tickles my insides! I can't help it.
...haha, as far as hippie...boyfriend says that is what I am.
I bet you were cute in your leotard!
~peace! ;) *giggle*

Hippo ~ Oh, what time should I be there? Do you want me to bring salad or dessert my sweet hippo?

Henri ~ Oh, good! You can have letter "T"! :)

Anonymous said...

How cool is this? Great list and I want to play along too!

Lee Ann said...

Bellarosa ~ Hi! Oh, I am glad you want to play. You can have the letter "N"! Have fun :)

robmcj said...

I get heartburn from doughnuts too, probably a good thing, since there's not much goodness in them.

2 half-Derriere HNTs? - now I'm going to have to look through your old pics.

Deal me in please.

Lee Ann said...

Rob ~ I guess we are a lot alike. I am glad you can play. You can have the letter "L"! That should be an eashy letter. Have fun Rob.

Mr. Althouse said...

Hey Lee Ann...

I'm sitting here trying to come up with "G" words and I'm not feelin' it. This day has just plain wore me out - mentally and spiritually. I'll get to it, but it may be a day or so K?



Lee Ann said...

Mike ~ No is supposed to be fun, there is no pressure! Have a great day!

DaMasta said...

Hey Lee Ann! Been on a short hiatus since I've been so busy at work. Just noticed that you did this game, too. I just posted mine tonight, so take a look if you have time.

I love diamonds, too. Anything that sparkles gets my attention!
