Throwback b

So, who better to introduce my retro meme than L.T. on the run in a Chargers throwback?!* 

I think I have only done one or two memes in the last few months, so I was delighted to be tagged for this meme by my wonderful friend, Carra. Merci, Carra!

Rules of the Meme:
1. Post 5 links to 5 of your previously written posts. The posts have to relate to the 5 keywords given below:

2. Tag 5 other friends to do this meme. Try to tag at least 2 new acquaintances (if not, your current blog buddies will) so that you can get to know them each a little bit better.

3. Read the archived posts and leave comments if you'd like to.

I tag the following (who may do the meme if they would like to but really, no obligation!): La Belette Rouge, Colleen, Randal, Take a Year Out, La Page Française, and Erin.

*I updated this meme post with a spiffier title and this kick ass image when I saw the creative likes of LBR and Mr. Randal Graves. Thanks for the inspiration (always) mes amis! Mine was clearly lacking!

HA! Thank you for the tag. Your family post was really funny. I always say that some of the funniest stuff is not made up and has to do with our family.

Colleen... Yes, that was a hilarious moment with my mother! And I totally agree that some of the funniest (and most dramatic) moments can be found in our family lives! :) Looking forward to reading yours!

La Belette Rouge said...

Thank you so much for the tag! Thank you for giving me something to post today. I was at a loss.

I love this opportunity to view your archives. Naked golf? Wow! I hear a lot of gold course stories too. Nothing as exciting as your parent's tale of extreme-golf. My mother tells me a lot about the coyotes and the geese on her golf course. The big complaint is all the goose poop.

Randal Graves said...

I have never been golfing in my life, but one of the roads near my house cuts between a couple of holes at the local course. Very surburban-y, middle-aged-plus men. I've never seen a naked woman. Or a woman, for that matter. ;-)

Um, if we don't really have a post on love or friendship, what exactly are the rules?

Richard said...

Naked Caddies is still blocked at work.

Nice to see this meme working its way around.

Take A Year Out said...

i will get on to this.

i have never done meme before, however, so forgive me if it takes a while...

Randal Graves said...

That's who we should be playing this Sunday. Sigh. Now I'm depressed. Oh well, a nice excuse to have un verre de vin ! ;-)

La Belette Rouge said...

Who is that guy in the picture? I am confused. I am pretty sure it's not Joseph Cambell, Herman Hesse, or Nietzche. ;-)

LBR... Thanks for accepting the challenge. It was so much fun reading those posts you wrote before we met! Yes, naked golf is a bit more exciting than goose poop, isn't it? ;-)

Randal... Yeah, if there were naked women hanging out on golf courses, perhaps you might find it more appealing?! I'm not a golfer myself but it seems that more women are getting into it. I love cruising around in the golf cart drinking though!

Richard... Haha. Is it really? Sorry about that! Yeah, I really enjoyed reading your retro posts and so I was delighted when Carra tagged me.

TAYO... No rush or obligation but I would love to see what you link to.

b said...

Randal... Sorry to depress you! That was truly not my intent! :(

LBR... Don't you recognize ole Nietzsche in a Chargers throwback jersey?! Haha. Okay, it is actually LaDainian Tomlinson, the best running back in the NFL (oh yeah, I said it). He's not Nietzsche but he's downright sexy if you ask me! ;-) I don't think my other boys (Campbell, Hesse, Nietzsche) would mind, especially considering that they are all... um, dead.
