7 Random facts

Karen over at Quilting with Karen has tagged me with the 7 random facts meme. So...here they are.

1. I'm still kind of afraid of the dark. I hated coming home from work to a dark house in the winter. One of the advantages of being retired is not having to do that!

2. I lived in Scotland for 2 years back in the 1970's while Jerry was stationed there with the US Navy. Craig was born there. (hence his good Scottish name!)

3. I worked for a year after high school before going to college. I was a keypunch operator at Ford Motor Company. I HATED that job.

4. I don't like cats, but really love dogs.

5. I can touch my nose with my tongue which is possible because I don't have that little thingy that attaches the tongue to the bottom of my mouth. (does that thing have a name?)

6. I used to be a pretty good bowler - with an average of about 165 - but I always slide on the wrong foot making people watching think I'm going to hit myself in the leg with the ball.

7. My first car was a 1961 VW Beetle that I bought from my Aunt & Uncle. I couldn't drive a stick shift when I got it, so my brother had to drive it home for me. Most of the cars I've owned since then have been stick shifts, including the stupid station wagon we owned with four on the floor! Who equips a station wagon like that?

Here's the obligatory Hayden photo.

Yes, the tongue holding down thingy has a name but it's out of my brain - I only taught Anatomy and Physiology when they made me. Now Zoology was another story - I love to do plants and animals - even the "lower" phyla such as fungi are dear to me.

Had a great time with you yesterday - will be putting up pics of the latest TTT soon.

Awww, Hayden is so sweet and beautiful! Hey, a 61 bug was my first car too! Mine was orange and had no headliner, so it sounded like a tin can when you slammed the door closed. Wasn't that reserve dealy in the floor awesome? Saved my bacon many times!
