Well I think you pretty much covered Michele on this hub. LOL! That's for sure. And, I'll pretty much agree she is a pretty cool person and having plenty of conversations with her(not always seeing eye to eye), it still remains a pleasure to have her on HubPages, as a part of the Community and to know as a person. :) Very nicely written. :)

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Hi Sunshine - thanks so much! Michele was very easy to write about and I came up with just dozens of her wonderful traits in minutes. You are awesome - and if anyone isn't sure about that they should read the link above! Lol.

Merry Christmas and Happy new year ya hub lovin' hopper!


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Hi Cagsil - yep! Michele has her beliefs and thoughts and isn't afraid to share them - but she listens to your feelings and beliefs and doesn't try to make them less valid. I think she's incredibly intelligent and open minded - who doesn't love that in a person! Lol. But it's very enjoyable to converse with her - I always learn something important regardless if it is about me or someone else.

You're right up there with Michele too Ray - I love how you can help others and listen and tell your side - but not in a begrudging or judgmental way. That's just a superb quality:)

Awe - makes me love that Mo even more! What a great tribute to another writer!!! I love the little tidbits like the fact that she will throw darts at my head if I ever miss pronounce Nuckluear wrong... lol... thanks for the warning!


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Hi BBG - yes proper English pronunciation is one of her pet peeves! Lol. She does give a disclaimer for people that have English as a second language....! Ha! She's about one of the kindest people I have encountered here on hub:).

Great hub. I hope her husband is feeling so much better very soon. Merry Christmas.


writeronline 4 years ago

Nice job, RealHousewife. And on a very worthy person. I don't seem to see / hear as much from MO lately. And I miss her cool commenting style (and of course the cool commenting substance that goes with it.) Didn't know hubby was in hospital, sure hope he's home in time for Xmas.

I was more than intrigued by "Is going to St. Petersburg for 30 months!". But I guess that's not Russia, but somewhere in the USofA? (Where I'm not.)

Anyway, again, nice job. Merry Christmas to you, and to MO.

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Hi Writer20 - thank you so much - I know she will also be so glad to see your comment:) Best wishes for the holidays!

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Hi writeronline - I too have missed MO being around so much...I know what you mean. I know she has had some real challenges last year...so I hope that 2012 makes up for it:)

pssstt...going to St. Petersburg is part of the raising awareness for breast cancer campaign we are participating in on FB:) lol

Thanks so much for the great comments - I know for sure she will be excited when she gets time to check in!!

Awwww, this is so totally awesome! Thank you, Kelly! What a wonderful Christmas gift from my hub friends. :) I think I may be blushing. :) To all of you who have commented, I have to say thank you as well. Each of you makes my hub experience more and more wonderful every day! Merry Christmas everyone, and WOO HOO my husband is HOME! :)


Motown2Chitown 4 years ago

Susan, you are a lovely lady yourself! Such a pleasure to know you. :)


Motown2Chitown 4 years ago

Sunshine, you're so cool! You guys make me feel so loved - I'm all warm and fuzzy! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday!


Motown2Chitown 4 years ago

Cags, you know I think you're pretty darn cool yourself! I love having conversations with you, and think you're a great guy and a fantastic friend to have around the Hub! Merry Christmas, friend!


Motown2Chitown 4 years ago

BBG, you're so sweet! And, I'm so glad I'll never have to throw darts at you for mispronouncing nuclear. I'd hate to do that kind of damage to a friendship for such a minor infraction.

Austin, you're awesome, and I love you too! You're such a multi-faceted and multi-talented woman. I'm constantly in awe of you. Thanks for the kind words!

Motown2Chitown 4 years ago

Thanks for the surprise, and the patience! This community has brought me much joy over the almost one year since I've been here, and I'm constantly surrounded by people who lift me up and support me. What a blessing...now, crack open a bottle of Moscato and let's get this party started!

WO, btw, you know how I feel about you, my dearest kindred spirit. I'm humbled by your generous and kind words about me, and assure you that the New Year will see me back to hubbing my patootie off. Hope your holidays are wonderful! :)

Hi MO! Lol see it's all contagious - I somehow have six kids in my house again:). I came upstairs to have a coffee and shut my bedroom door! Now look - I got a smile and a laugh with you this afternoon already!!

No truer words may have been spoken, right? MO I am a huge believer in reaping why you sow! I try never to dish out anything I can't take in return but of course you see this statement and LOVE enters your mind! So you Michele and makes you so endearing!

Even though I have been following Michele, I learned a lot here Kelly. Very cool! Thanks! I have always respected Michele for her openness and awesome writing. She knows that but I haven't told her that in awhile. MICHELE, I THINK YOUR WRITING IS AWESOME.

Nice job Kel!

Thank you so much! I have had a real blast getting to know you and your beautiful wife too!

Darn it, Kelly, that's it. I'm moving to Missouri so we can have coffee together every morning.

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Hey MO! That would be so awesome! I would make you coffee and have a nice place for you to sit and write your smash hit novel! lol

Woo hoo! I'm on it. Well, look, I'm really not planning another out of state move...but we can hook up and chat over our coffee via phone or Facebook...lol

MO.....I just HAD to tell you...my two Grandsons that I "babysit" for quite a bit, gave me a WONDERFUL Christmas gift!! (Drum roll please............) A Keurig one cup coffe maker!! & dozens of those magnificent little plastic cups of various coffee!! My vision of heaven is one huge, luxurious Coffee Shop with cakes, cookies, pastries, etc...yum. We have a Bunn that we've always used to make our daily coffee.....but NOW, I can have a freshly-brewed, delicious cup of gourmet coffee any time, without waste!.......My coffee reputation is well-known, so I get a lot of "coffee-related" gifts!


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Mo! I am just fine with coffee and FB if it is all I can get! haha!


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Effer - OMG! I got one too and I love it! I love it, love it, love my Keurig! My favorite is Neuman's Own...and I love dark magic too! haha~! I totally understand the break in for that important news. I am a coffee JUNKIE! LOL


Motown2Chitown 4 years ago

I want one of those, Effer and Real! Dunkin Donuts is my absolute favorite coffee and they even make K cups! :)


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

I didn't know Dunkin Donuts had their own! Mo - I hope you get one immediately! I love my coffee maker - having a big cup right now! lol Nice to see you while I sip it too! lol


Motown2Chitown 4 years ago

Girl, I've been through a whole pot already this morning. Working on a hub or two while I gulp! Good to see you too, as always. :)


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Mo - hey that is great! It is Jan. 3, and we are both working hard:) LOL Me too...oh you would be working on two at one time! I have one in the cooker! lol


PDXKaraokeGuy profile image

PDXKaraokeGuy 4 years ago from Portland, Oregon

Kelly, it is amazing this small world we live in and how easy it can be to get to know people... or at least know what they allow you to know :-)


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

This is true PDX - ! There certainly is no law that says that we have to or are obligated to tell all though. So etimes I feel there is an expectation for online writers to have to "tell all" about themselves...I don't think we are obligated to though - we all have private lives too:)


PDXKaraokeGuy profile image

PDXKaraokeGuy 4 years ago from Portland, Oregon

well, i understand that statement logically, but, not personally. I'm a pretty open book :-)


Motown2Chitown 4 years ago

Ah, heck, I tell it all. I have no shame. :P


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

PDX - I know so am I:) lmao. I don't feel there is much I've done that is worth keeping a big secret - except maybe a couple of the boys I kissed:) haha


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Hi Mo:). I'm so glad - shame is such a terrible feeling! I am shameless as well but only because I do realize that I am just a simple human being - I am not perfect and I have, do and will make more mistakes, it's one of the only things I can be certain of!

Good gracious once I decided to go ahead and be free of trying to set a perfect example - all he'll broke lose and I began to have a real good time every day:) hahahaha!


Motown2Chitown 4 years ago

I know exactly what you mean, Kelly. Shamelessness has its definite upside.

BTW, Sharyn, I so didn't mean to overlook your comment! Thank you for your kindness and loyalty. I happen to think you're pretty darn awesome too! :)


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Mo - yeah I always tell everyone I am an A@@ right away so they will not have such high expectations of me:) LOL It is harder to disappoint people that way! HAHA!


Motown2Chitown 4 years ago

Right!?!? Living up to what people expect is so much easier when you lay it out for them like that! LOL


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Thats what I think MO - in fact - upon first meeting I should just go ahead and tell the person to smack me now and get it out of the way:) LOL


Motown2Chitown 4 years ago

I'll hug rather than smack you, is that alright?


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Hey you are onto something - that would feel a lot better! So uh yeah that would be so great:)


PDXKaraokeGuy profile image

PDXKaraokeGuy 4 years ago from Portland, Oregon

Kelly, I'm with you on the kissing thing. There was a girl I "messed around with" a few months before i met my wife and I won't tell anyone. When I think about it I cringe. Blech....


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Hey PDX - I am sorry to say - I think I know exactly what you mean! EW! What was I thinking??? hahahaha!

well, generally, we're not... at least not with our brains

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Uh huh - lol lol lol.....generally I refer to it as thinking with the wrong head:) hahah sorry!
