the ABC's of me ~
Newt had sent the "abc's of me" back in 2006 ... I thought it was about time I did mine... so here we go... better late than never!
The ABC's of ME ~
Accent – Yankee all the way... but that's not an accent is it? That's just normal speech.
Booze of Choice – Make mine a Mount Royal Lite with a splash of diet Coke. I might tip down a really cold bottle of Miller Genuine Draft once in a blue moon too if the mood strikes me or a glass of homemade blackberry wine.
Chore I Hate – I haven’t really found one that I enjoy. I think that’s why they call them chores... but there is one in particular that stands out above all others; and that would be raking up dog poop in the spring.
Dog or Cat –Dog. Brandy, our golden retriever, is our watch dog, greeter, and chase away any critter that comes into the yard dog. Our other dog in the yard is Sam and Ashley's dog Amber the English Springer... only downfall... they poop!
Essential Electronics - Computer, iPod, television, radio, dvd player ... and I'm rather fond of the electric knife when it comes to cleaning fish.
Favorite Cologne – None in particular. I like the soft scents of musk or jasmine, vanilla or cherry blossoms ... is Dial soap a cologne?
Gold or Silver – Gold! I would love to go panning and get myself a nugget.
Hometown – Born and raised in Park Falls, WI
Insomnia – It used to be a real problem until I was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea. Now I use a CPAP (Continuous Positive Air Pressure) when I sleep ~ talk about a life saver!
Job Title – the exBaitlady ... I use to have a wholesaler who calls me "the Queen" ... I also find that a fitting title... but since we sold the bait business I guess I would have to use the title, "Senior Research Associate in the Field of Child Development and Human Relations"... sounds better than just saying Mom or G'ma ... lol.
Kids – 2 daughters, 1 son, and 3 granddaughters
Living Arrangement - Me and the Mr ... been together upcoming 34 years this August. He learned early what's mine is mine and what's his is mine.
Money - They say it's the root of all evil ... that must be why I'm so nice ... I have no money!
Number of Sexual Partners - Uh... now we're getting a little too personal.
Overnight Hospital Stays – Too many! Six knee surgeries, gallbladder, the big H, babies, whiplash, the neck, the back, the heart, the heart, the heart, the heart, the heart, the heart, the heart, the list goes on! Some people have a thin little folder of their medical history ... I have a novel. I think over the years I've paid for a whole new wing at the Marshfield Hospital and Clinic!
Phobias – None that I can think of, except maybe getting a little on the claustrophobic side as I'm aging. I hate crowded areas. When I had my last MRI I really felt like I was in a tomb. I was fighting off a panic attack the whole time the procedure was being done.
Quote – His Eye is on the sparrow; and I know He watches me.
Religion – I was raised a Lutheran, but I tend to have conflicts with the "Church". I am a Christian!
Siblings – I have 4 sisters living, who I am better looking than, 1 sister who has passed on . I also have 3 brothers living who look like my sisters, and 1 brother who has passed on. There were 10 of us altogether.
Time I Wake Up – 6:00 AM.
Unusual Talent – I plunk away at the dulcimer once in awhile; and when I was younger I could plug my nose and air would come out by my tear duct of my right eye.
Vegetable(s) - Love them! BUT I hate fresh leaf garden lettuce. I keep getting flashbacks to a little worm I saw once crawling on a leaf just as I was about to pop it into my mouth.
Worst Habit – Using the F word when I'm really really really really really mad. It makes me mad when I succumb to that because I really really really really do detest it.
X-rays – I've had so many that I glow.
Yummy Foods I Make – ALL my cookin'! ~ thus the weight problems.
Zodiac Sign – the tenth sign of the zodiac ~ Capricorn the goat.
There you have it Newt, a few years late on answering this; but I did it!!
Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
