Gobbling Up the Holidays Blog Hop – Use Me and Abuse Me!

fancy bird 2

Start flapping your wings! It’s time to Use Me and Abuse Me, so fly to the Wild Ride and meet my friends. Come with ONE blog post and paste it in my comment section. Leave a one line teaser and then mingle or chirp away with the guests. Click on a few links and say “Howdy do!”

Tell them, “Susie sent me,” and they should click back to your nest. (Do turkeys have nests?)

Follow a few and they may follow your blog!

  • Bring one of your own posts. If you leave a friend’s, they may not come to party with us. It’s no fun to knock on a door and wait…and wait…and wait…It ruins the atmosphere.
  • Do not leave your link and fly off without clicking on a few. This is a major party foul.
  • Leave ONE link. Two will send you into my spam filter and that is always so embarrassing for both of us.

Have a blast meeting my friends. I am truly grateful for each one of them. They are the best in the blogosphere!

I roasted a turkey with all the sides and there’s a tofurkey for my vegetarian friends. This is the kick off to the holidays so grab a glass of cheer!

Don’t forget to DANCE! 

I found a great new video to kick off the party. Meet my new feathered friends!

Spread the word and invite your friends. The more, the merrier!

    1. Loved your post about staying present centered. I would think most of us struggle with that!
      Thanks for bringing it to the party. Click on a few links. Tell them, “Susie sent me and they should click back to your “nest!”


    1. What a nut case! I’m surprised they allow her to visit for such a long period of time..
      I joined Bubblews and left a comment for you. 🙂
      Thanks for bringing it to the party!


    2. I heard this on the news this morning and couldn’t believe it was true! Who in their right mind would marry Charles Manson? I guess “their right mind” is the key to that one… 😉


  1. Haven’t been to one of your great parties in quite a while. I think it is time to kick up my heels and get my boo-ga-loo on!
    The following post tells you why I am so happy. However; it is dated. I have added another book to my collection.
    Thank you one more time for inviting me to the party. I bought a bottle of fine wine to bring with me but – – – alas – – – thirst overtook my better judgment. Maybe next time I will have better control.

    1. Congratulations Waldo! Wow! That is something to celebrate!
      Have fun meeting my friends. Tell them, “Susie sent me,” and they should click back to your nest!”
      By the way, there’s a lot more wine at the bar. Help yourself!


  2. In fine feather here today!
    Hear the turkeys flying….of course turkeys have 2 legs. Didn’t you fight over the drumsticks as a kid? I don’t think they allow those on planes anymore – drumsticks..So does that eliminate the turkeys from flying? Hmmmm (I did take a frozen turkey in a carry on bag once….but this post isn’t about that. Sorry…rambling…blame the flying turkey )

      Glad to see you are still alive and well! Loved your funny post. It hit on everyone’s worst fears before surgery.

    1. Hey Jan,
      Boy. Some days are rough! I’m sure you’ll find a lot of empathy in the crowd.
      Thanks for bringing this to the party. Have fun clicking on links and don’t forget to dance!


  3. I have, since childhood, been a huge fan of Bill Cosby. Went to see him live for the first time this past weekend, just as all these allegations about him started swirling around the news. I had to write about it of course. Here are my thoughts: http://oh-brother-here-we-go-again.com/2014/11/18/hello-friend-bill-cosby-grandmas-pirated-tape-shoeless-joe-jackson/

    I look forward to finding new blog friends to follow and great posts to read!!!

    1. Cosby is my favorite! I don’t want to believe he did any of those things. It’s sad how they cancelled all of his appearances. Tried and hung already?
      Thanks so much for bringing this to the party! Tell them, “Susie sent me,” and they should click back to your “nest.” 🙂

    1. Love your diet idea! Hahaha! I started reading the fine print of all labels after having breast cancer. It’s scary!
      Thanks for bringing this to the party. Have fun and don’t forget to DANCE!


    1. You’ve had some amazing adventures living abroad and in a castle. What a fabulous friend she was!
      Thanks for bringing this to the party. Have fun as usual and help yourself to the cranberry punch!


    1. It sounds like a wonderful town with a very interesting history!
      Thanks for bringing this to the party! Sorry about the ice. I threw some salt on the walkway, so it should melt. 🙂


    1. I love your positive messages! It is so important to put yourself first!
      Thanks for bringing this to the party. There are many new faces in the crowd today! Have fun “mingling” with the guests. See you on the dance floor!


    1. I love this post! You are so clever. I read it to Danny last night.
      Thanks for coming to the party. Have fun meeting the new bloggers here today! Try the punch. It is fantabulous!


    1. Thanks for flying by Lisa!
      I remember this funny post. I can so relate. As I am typing, I realize I’m not wearing glasses. I hope I don’t have any typos!!!
      There are lots of great blogs to read and new friends to meet!
      I’ve been in the throes of birthday week and finishing NaNoWriMo. I should be done tomorrow or Sunday. Then I can really catch up with everyone!


  4. This must be da place….., da wild hop with music by the Funky Turkeys. Hi Susie ! Where is everybody? Thought you’d have a gazillion visitors by now. Guess the snow scared ‘em all off. Wimps !!! Brought a bottle o’ wine but it’s mostly slush now. These 11deg temps are nasty. Had to drink half of it just to have some anti-freeze in me blood now. Here’s my doing for the day. It’s an old one, but appropriate for what we’re getting for weather.
    Have a great day !!! (Been skiing yet?)


    1. Love this poem Paul! Thanks for coming by! The crowd is thinning now, but everyone left great posts. There are lots to read!
      We are hitting the slopes tomorrow! I can’t wait….


  5. I’m sorry I missed this one, Susie. In all fairness I wouldn’t have bee able to spend enough time mixing and mingling. I will be able to pick over your comments and find some gems to enjoy at a leisurely pace. Thanks.
