A Nawtee Meme

Because I’m boring and have rarely done anything wild or crazy in my life, I live through others craziness.  I saw this meme at The Queen of the Meme’s, Blogarita, and I said "Oh, I want to steal that one for my  blog."  Then, I realized how small my fines would be. 

Luckily, I know people who are way more daring and fun than myself, so here we go…it goes a little somethin’ like this:

You don’t have to confess your answers, just the amount of your fine. And NO, it is not PER incident (otherwise, some of us would have totals more than the national debt!).

Bring up that calculator, and get to work!

Ever had sex at church — Never did that, but, how much fine should one pay for writing graffiti (ok, I wrote "Jesus") on the sanitary napkin dispenser?  I’ll fine myself $10 for that one in its stead.

WC-Gone Clear

In_memory_of_w_c In the summer of 2004, some of my extended relations converged at Cousin Terry’s on the Cumberland River in Madison for a week of reminiscing, lots of laughing, sightseeing, togetherness and root-gathering.  The occasion was the mainland visit of one of my Dad’s first cousins who the family had not seen since she was a wee little girl.  She brought her family over from Hawaii to connect them with her father’s roots.  It was a grand time.

Another of Dad’s first cousins, WC Link, came up from his home in Florida and spent most of the week with us.  At 77, he kept up with us rather wonderfully, and was especially valuable to have along on the trip we made up to the Land Between the Lakes, where our Im000262 grandparents and ancestors lived. 

It was also during that visit that, thanks to WC, I had a wild ride in his rental car down Gallatin Rd. on the way to see the former family house on Holly St. in East Nashville.  When I learned I was to ride with WC, I thought "Oh boy..this’ll be slow." HA. WC flew into East Nashville with his Sista Cousin laughing and howling the whole way.

WC was a much loved and respected Methodist minister in these parts for many years.  He was appointed by President Johnson to serve on his Commission of Obscenity and Pornography back in 1968.  He’s known and loved throughout the Tennessee conference of Methodist folk.  No telling how many people he buried Sharon__wc_and_terry_1 and married in his lifetime.  In fact, he even did the honors of pronouncing me Mrs. Smiff back in 1989. 

There’s a complex out on Lebanon Rd., McKendree Manor, that has a building bearing the name of my cousin WC.  You can read here what all he had to do with McKendree.  A lot.  He was quite instrumental and quite the visionary when it came to care for older folks. 

WC retired to Florida some years ago so he could play golf whenever he wanted.  He wanted to and did a lot.  He may have retired, but, he never stopped ministering, in fact, in his retirement, he became and EMT…in his 70’s.  He was quick with a computer and on December 29, despite his illness, he logged into our family website to see the latest family news. 

WC was one of the cool cats. We’re all going to miss him.
