Tagged for meme by Scarlet Blue

Is America Burning has been tagged en masse (are 3 people a masse?) for a meme by Scarlet W. Blue . The meme is, and I quote Scarlet:

"Here are the rules for this meme: 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. 4. Tag five more blogs with links. 5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!"

Furthermore, she added:
"I am taking the easy way out and tagging everyone on my blogroll because I would like to see what that creative, chawming bunch comes up with."

Everyone on her blogroll? That includes IAB, which means Worried, Granny Ann and Gadfly. OK, here goes mine:

Family
Happiness

Just in case somebody gets the wrong idea, even though this old Texas Prickly Pear set a few blooms doesn't mean there's not still plenty of thorns under those flowers!

Thanks for playing, Gadfly. I'm glad you summed it up with happiness.

You're welcome, Scarlet. I had to rack my brain to find one word to describe each part of my life. Good brain exercise, though. The female ultimate fighter fit my role in life very good. After a start in life from hell, I managed to get on the right track (with "a little help from my friends" - but not in the way the song says) and a damned good life companion gave me a lot of happiness.
Losing my husband too freaking soon was a low blow but I have wonderful memories to comfort me in my old age. I'm not as full of rage as I used to be but am still a prickly old b*tch. Never let your guard down.
Live! Love! Laugh! but don't ever let the bastids get you down, Honey Chile. Keep your baseball bat handy and You GO! Scarlet!!
PS: The Old Woman and I sometimes talk about you and your gang, including friends. Damn but we're proud of you! You are one gutsy woman to keep on keeping on after all the crap you've endured in your life. (I know about HELL! Mine was Hell Holler, instead of Hell, Mo). The Old Woman is as attached to you and yours as she is to all those kids that rampaged through her house, heart and life and she took under her wing just like her own. Funny how people get so attached to people they've never met in person. But she says you get to know a lot about a person from their blogs, not just what they say but little things over time reveal a bunch. You're a fine young woman, Scarlet.

Honey, a lot of people would probably like to forget; I seriously doubt any will.:)

The picture above those pretty flowers: was that you before you grew "buds"? Jist askin'!!

WA: Hmmm! I am fielding that question to the Gadfly. :-) I just publish comments on members' posts

Dan'l!! The answer is "Nope". Got that pic off the internet of female ultimate fighters. I thought it made sense for my life. Anyway, I had buds bigger than that when I was 12 years old. Caused me to learn to run fast and to fight like hell. After the buds fully bloomed, more attention consequently honed my fighting skills even more since blooms interfere with fast running to a certain extent. You never see big blooms on female olympic sprinters, do you?

P.S. If you meant "buds" in a different way, I was a late bloomer. Didn't blossom out to my full potential until I was older.
