Saturday Stalker – Bossy Betty

Saturday Stalker, Let Us Stalk You!

Bossy Betty: For Ice Cream

The Saturday Stalker has been stalking blogs. Many of you have told me that the “masked” pictures of the Saturday Stalker scare you.

I must admit, I truly laugh out loud.

Do you know where I got that picture?

Remember this post called The Abominable Redhead Riter?

I hope that makes you feel better and calmed your fears. I also hope my mother clicked the link…It’s the RED words Mom. Just put your cursor on it and click. It will pop another page up so you can see what I want you to see. Sorry everybody else. I have to teach Mom and I don’t want her to skim past that link, so I have to give her exact directions. Now go back Mom and click it.. No, I’m not using that tone.

Bossy Betty's 500th Post...

This week I used to pick the blog we are going to stalk. Remember, you can stalk it the entire week and leave comments. All it takes to be considered for next week’s blog as the one that gets stalked is to make a comment during “roll call” for lack of a better term which simply means to leave a comment on this post before next Saturday and comment on this week’s stalked blog. If you haven’t read the directions about commenting, please hop over “here” and catch up.

I really enjoyed stalking Betty of Bossy Betty this week and found her blog to be filled with all kinds of fun, informative, well thought out and touching posts.

The following are a few posts I read while stalking…

  • I have a 24 hour, 7 day a week craving for ice cream which is why I am choosing For Ice Cream as our first stop.
  • In the celebratory Bossy Betty’s 500th Post… I believe you will gain an insight into her personality and playfulness.
  • Of course, I had to choose The Long and Short Goodbye because I totally connected with Betty in this post. Her writing is emotional and poignant. I was so moved when she shared that she “often went to my room, sat in a corner and cried, butting my head against the intractable rules of nature.

Now it is your turn to “stalk” Bossy Betty and leave comments on the posts highlighted above. Go ahead, make her week!

As a reminder…Be sure to leave a comment on this post if you want to be eligible for stalking next week!

I love Bossy Betty!!! What an attitude and an excellent writer!! I sent her story on her sons growing up to a good friend of mine who is going through the same thing.
Really loved the old mirror post also! Somehow I can relate to bonding to inanimate objects. Is that sick?

I think I should write more like this on my blog. ummm

Red, once again you are the best!!

What a cool blog! I love her header picture and blog title. I liked the 500th post- especially #2 about her being slow. I can definitely relate. I often feel lost in all the blogging lingo and technologically complicated…stuff!

Red, I was already a follower of Bossy Betty but hadn't read her older posts. I loved her 500th post and her comparison with the rabbits to the awards was brilliant! Stalking is fun!

Hey! Thanks for stalking me! (I know it was, but you were the E Harmony that got us together.)

I appreciate it! Normally I have to make a scene on the street to get people to pay attention to me. This is much easier!

LOL Jules! I also did a post before this one, but didn't want the page to load slow so kept it to one post per page.

Did you read The Redhead Who Loves Me that is one click back?

If not, I need to make my click bigger!!!!
