Lovely Blog Award

The lovely Joyce Smith of  Zany G's (Grandma)
 has honored me with the lovely blog award and I am to write seven interesting facts about myself. Here they are:

  1. I never liked to admit that I’m not good at finding the right direction. I don’t give up easily so it is not unusual that I would drive around some places for hours until I find it.
  2. I’ve been lost in Pensacola, Florida, New York City, Chicago, New Orleans, and Houston.
  3. Once I went with a group of YSA in New Jersey to a dance in Manhattan and we ended up driving through all five boroughs of New York City to get there.
  4. When I was in 5th grade I was chosen as one of three children to be a special escort in the ceremony for the laying of the flowers at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Washington D.C.  Unfortunately, since I got my directions mixed up—I went the wrong way during the ceremony. (In front of about 100 people)
  5. I use to work as a greens keeper on a golf course in New Jersey three summers in a row.
  6. I never liked playing golf.
  7. I consider myself very patriotic.
  8. I love to write.
  9. When I was little—my parents would put my sister and I in front of all the family at reunions and had us sing songs. (I actually liked it)
  10. When my children, husband and I lived in a farmhouse in Foley Alabama, we were visited by six teenaged pigs.
  11.  I once saw two mice dance together on their hind legs while I was watching TV in the house where we were visited by the teenage pigs. (No one ever believed me)
  12. We once caught 23 mice in traps while living in the farmhouse in Foley that was visited by six teenaged pigs.
  13.  I once swam a race in an Olympic sized pool and came in third place.  (There were only three people in the race)
  14.  I love living in Loxley though we have never been visited by pigs. Only mice.
  15.  One time when I was younger, my sister and I went trick or treating and a neighbor gave us dog poop instead of candy wrapped up in a napkin.
  16. Most people can never guess my age.
I actually wrote a few more than seven as I have written this funny piece about myself a while ago and wanted to use it for this blog.
