I love every single vegetable! My favorites are eggplant, rutabaga, parsnips and brussel sprouts!
I often have more than 20 tabs open at one time when I’m looking for details in my online ancestry research!
I had a dream to publish a book before I was 40. Think it’s too late?! Just in case you don’t know, I was born in 1949. You do the math!
I learned to swim in the Atlantic Ocean when I was 7 years old. I had an incentive to learn quickly because little fish constantly nibbled at my feet!
I reread Catherine Marshall’s book Christy almost every year! The setting is in the Appalachian mountains, home to many of my ancestors.
I was bucked off a horse when I was 19. You know the admonition to get back on the horse? Not me…no way…never been on a horse since!
I once memorized the poem Chicago by Carl Sandburg. “Hog Butcher for the World, Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat, Player with Railroads and the Nation’s Freight Handler; Stormy, husky, brawling…..”
I have never been your basic athletic person. So, one day when I was in high school I realized I had never climbed a tree. I can tell you I successfully climbed it…with the help of one chair and one ladder. Don’t ask me any questions!
My favorite ice cream flavor is Mandarin Chocolate Sherbet. Could we have a moment of silence? Baskin Robbins removed it from their selection over 30 years ago. I just Googled it and can’t believe how many people want it brought back!
I once took a big bite of mashed potatoes…only to discover it was a big bite of freshly ground horseradish! I thought I was dead!
As a child and teen, I used to faint almost every day. I could see the room getting dark and the next thing I knew, I had cold compresses on my face. No doctor could ever figure out what was wrong. Eventually, I grew out of it.
I won a women’s golf tournament in Canada. I still have the 1976 trophy. Are you impressed? Would you still read my blog if I admit I won because I was the only woman to finish!
That was fun! I may be back sometime with more!!
By the way, the photo above was taken in 1973. Don’t know what to say about the fit of my jeans!!
