 Bev is having some technical difficulties  so I decided to post Ten Things About Me here today.

1. I love Dr. Kevin Lehman and his books on the Birth Order. My kids think I favor their younger brother Nick. It just isn't true. He is the youngest and I was the youngest, so we relate to each other. Have you ever read the Birth Order books?

2. When I worked a full time job I had helped several people in difficult situations. They were people I knew nothing about and it gave me great joy to see a smile creep across their face.

3. A high school chum crashed my car in front of a funeral home and I never let another soul drive my car when I was a teen and young lady. Nope Never. Nada.

4. I was on a bowling league when I was in the 4th grade. I loved it, but to be fair, my mom was a great bowler. She loved Earl Anthony the pro bowler and I followed him because of my mom. He was left handed and we both were left handed too.

5. When I was small two of my older siblings teased me that I was adopted because I had blue eyes. Both of my grandmother's had blue eyes so I wondered, if anyone was adopted, it sure wasn't me. hahaha

6. Maybe you know this favorite fact about me but my father was a semi pro baseball player long before I was dreamed of. I miss him every day, I miss his knowledge of the game and I am very proud that I was his daughter.

7. I remember playing on the playground at my Catholic school when the nuns gathered us all and told us President John F. Kennedy had been shot and killed. I remember that day like it was yesterday.

8. I met two of the four Monkees when I was 13. My friend Bobbie, a California girl was visiting relatives in my hometown and we baked them a cake and took it to their hotel. We met Mike & Micky.

9. I love music and don't have a musical bone in my body! I have been to at least a dozen concerts from Edgar Winter, Led Zeppelin, John Denver & Loggins and Messina. I saw Barbara Mandrell with my oldest girl Noelle at the Colorado State Fair and we waited forever to get her autograph. I remember seeing Alabama with my sister there too and Charlie Pride. 

10. I loved growing up in my neighborhood in BoJon Town where everyone knew each other and neighbors would correct us and we never had a care because we were so well loved.


I like to dress up our Thanksgiving Table too. Thanks to Dolly and Billy from The Family Circus. They have always made me smile and I enjoy these simple pleasures . The come from a time when life was simple and more people were kind.

Aw, your #2 warms my heart. Sincere customer service is so rare these days (that) when it happens, one remembers.

Squealing about meeting Mike and Mickey! I used to love the Monkees; Peter was probably my favorite, but I only had eyes for my h.s. flame, Gordon. That was sure a clever way to meet them; I wonder if it would work today?

Those were all good. Hey, back in the day our Dad's Uncle bowled against Earl Anthony when he was in town.
