Meet my other friends Monday

Monday's are so much easier to deal with when I have a little help from my friends. Since I think I've got the greatest friends on earth I want to share them with everyone. Monday's are dedicated to the best bloggers I know, my pals. You could be next.

Today I bring you Jerry who some of you may know as Fishhawk of As the Crackerhead Crumbles. I believe that I met Jerry in my Entrecard dropping days. More often than not I can count on Jerry to give me a laugh with his comments. Occasionally he goes all soft and mushy but being the manly man that he is it doesn't last long.

Jerry requested pictures of Duke to be displayed with today's post so Duke put on his readers so he wouldn't miss a word.
1) How long have you been blogging and what made you start? I first starting blogging in 2007 as a way to publish the books that I had been given to write, and the ministry has grown in several different directions since.

2) What is one piece of advice you would give to a new blogger? Be as engaging as possible. Invite people into your life, and ask more than just rhetorical questions while trying to be gentle with those who might not appreciate your views on sensitive subjects as much as you may believe they should.

3) Do you have any hobbies or special talents? Well, my parents considered me a know-it-all. So, that makes me a very special person--right? In all seriousness, I have spent some time in almost every part of this country--apart from Alaska and Hawaii, and I have always been very adaptable in different situations around very different people from myself. Of course, the most valuable is something that most will refuse to believe is anything more than just a figment of my own imagination. For I have been allowed and enabled to truly have a very close and personal relationship with our Heavenly Father, which includes Him speaking to and with me on a regular basis.

4) Of course you love all the blogs you visit but share a link to one of those and tell us why we should check it out. [Adullamite] has been one of my favorites for years--in spite of him being a cantankerous ol' Scot in every stereotypical sense.


5) What is the one thing that totally makes you crazy? People acting like you have crashed their private party when you happen to stumble upon their site and dare leave a comment. Sadly, many "Christians" are as bad about this as anyone out there.

6) Give one random thought. Why do I keep smelling bacon frying when there is none to be found anywhere around? Could this be an old Communist plot that didn't get cancelled after the end of the cold war? (Sorry, that was two thoughts. I have trouble with math at times.)
 
The End
Jerry also requested that I not use a picture of a cat's butt but thought his wife Arlynda would get a kick out of it if I did. Since I didn't want to offend my friend but wanted to amuse his wife I used Duke's butt instead.

Ann what a gorgeous photo of Duke and his butt you have shared and loved reading your friend's interview though I was surprised to know people got angry when a comment was left

Duni said...

So nice to read about Jerry! I like his advice for new bloggers!
Duke looks very intellectual in that pic ;-)

Grace said...

Oh Jerry and I have had some go-arounds - nice man.

Lin said...

Fish and I go waaayyyy back. It was nice to read more about him. :)

I still wish he would drive faster on those Sunday drives. My pinwheel rarely gets a good workout when he's driving. ;)

Hi to Jerry! :)

and Ann.. Duke should always wear glasses from now on! Somehow it makes him even cuter and I did not know that was possible.

Sandra said...

i am afraid Duke stole Jerry's thunder with that cute face in glasses. hi, nice to meet you Jerry. i drive my hubby crazy because i smell something like burning wires, a lot and he says there is no smell at all.

BeadedTail said...

Duke is too cute! I enjoyed Jerry's answers too! These are fun posts!

Remington said...

Very cool! I love to learn more about friends! Thanks for sharing!

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Thank you so very much!!!! (The check is in the mail, but the bacon may take a while. Sorry, Duke.)

Helen said...

I don't know if Jerry was serious about the smelling bacon when there was none around. I sometime watched Rachel Ray and when she cooked I sort off smell what she cooking. I knew I wasn't loosing my mine or was I?

Duke you are absolutely handsome! I can't believe he leaves the glasses on. Just adorable!

Sandee said...

I too remember him from Entrecard. I didn't know him though, just his site. Very good answers. And Duke too. You know how I like Duke.

Have a terrific day Jerry and Ann. My best to Duke and his behind. :)

Catherine said...

Happy October Ann and Duke!

I love old Jerry - but I couldn't get his wife's site to come up...

Debra Dickinson said...

I love this idea! Thank you for sharing different sites. I have checked them all out and it's fun to see new blogs! I misread this one at first tho and thought it said "crack"head... oh my! LOL.

Rose said...

Jerry is too funny! How nice of Duke to help him out with his interview.

Reeni Pisano said...

I don't know Jerry but it was nice meeting him! And Duke looks so cute with glasses on!

SweetMarie said...

Nice to meet you Jerry. :)
Duke is so handsome! He looks so sophisticated in those glasses. :)
Hope you're having a great week so far. :)
I'm running behind again, we're enclosing the garage to be a larger bedroom for my son. I'm tired...

Don't unplug your hub. said...

Hi Jerry. How odd that some people don't like comments. I thought that was what it was all about. I shall still leave a comment when I see fit. I love comments. Not the spam ones though.

Dee said...

Hello Jerry...I will stop by your blog for a visit. I must add Ann...Duke looks good from both ends and very smart in his glasses.:)

Sharkbytes said...

I met Jerry through EC also! Good post.

Pu Niao said...

May I say that is a distinguished-looking Duke at any time with those glasses *nods* Yep he did!!

Have an "Aww-some" Monday :)

Sincerely,
Pu Niao (-Chopsticks-)
