Tag, I'm It....

Two posts in one day-what's going on here. I've been tagged by Pam at Pam Kitty Morning for 7 things about meme so here are the rules. By the way, I've done this before so I may repeat some of the things about me and I think Pam is getting back at me for passing on the Spreader of Love award to her!

The rules of the meme are:
1. When tagged, place the name of the person and URL on your blog
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Write 7 things about yourself
4. Name 7 of your favorite blogs
5. Send an e-mail letting those bloggers know they have been tagged

So here goes;

1. I am a college hockey geek. My husband and I have season tickets to UNH men's hockey and we love it. We even record the games when we are at one so we can then come home and check out the replays. By the way, UNH won the Hockey East title this past Saturday and hopefully will go on to the national championship, but you don't care about that because you're not lucky enough to be a college hockey geek like me.

2. I have an artificial knee. I had my left knee replaced two years ago and am very glad I did as it bothered me for years. But it is a pain when I fly now because I set of the alarms and have to be practically strip searched. My daughter thinks that is hilarious.

3. When I was first married and living on an Air Force Base in Colorado I was in a bowling league with John Denver's mother, Erma. Her husband was retired military and they lived in Denver. She was a cute, tiny little woman.

4. My first job was delivering eggs. My uncle had a chicken farm and my sister and I used to bring eggs around to neighbors in a wagon. We were about 6 and 8 years old. My mother must have been breaking some kind of child labor law.

5. One of the most interesting jobs I had at one time was a mystery shopper. I would shop and write up reports on the people waiting on me.

6. I hate big houses. It's a pet peeve of mine that all these giant houses are being built these days. Why can't they build nice little cottages or ranch homes anymore?

7. And the best thing about me is that I have known my husband since kindergarten. I didn't actually know him then but we did go to the same kindergarten. I've been married to him for almost 33 years and been dating him for a lot longer. I think it's great that we have stuck together this long. It's been easy on my side because he is such a good man.

So I will now tag PenPen, Cherry, Rose, Peri, Sue, Julie, and Mary. I have Martha's Stewart's blog listed as one I read and I was actually considering tagging her to see if she would do this but I didn't have the guts. I hope someone else will try it!


  1. Getting back at you!!! Hmm, maybe just a bit! Lots of interesting facts. Thanks again!

  2. How do you get the job of Mystery Shopper? I've often thought that has to be one of the best jobs ever.
    I've never been tagged before so this will be interesting, thanks for thinking of me! Except I'm pretty boring so I'd better get busy thinking of 7 things. Hmmmmmmm......

  3. Great post! I love reading these random facts about people.
    I laughed about Martha Stewart! I wonder??

  4. What a great post & list of facts. John Denver was one of my favourite singers when I was in High School :-} how exciting that you were in a bowling league with his Mum. We are a family that LOVES hockey too!

  5. Oh boy, I'm right there with you on little houses. I love my little house. I feel so cozy inside it *s*

  6. First thanks for the "computer" help the other day - I had done a right click and save with other people's photos on Flickr but I think at that point I had given up when it came to my mosaic. Sometimes you just need a fresh look or a little encouragement to get something done and you gave it to me! Thanks! Now my mosaic is posting.

    Second of all, loved reading about you - the egg delivery jobs sounds so sweet - almost out of Mayberry or Little House on the Prairie. I the mystery shopper job - I can only imagine that was a very interesting and fun job. I'd be curious to hear about that. Finally, so nice to hear how long you and your husband have been together - you don't hear enough stories like that anymore, unfortunately.

  7. Wonderful post! I so loved John Denver...: )
    We love hockey here too!

    Oh how I love smaller homes. It is one of my pet peeves too that more smaller homes are not built. HUGE, mammoth ones that are cold, impersonal and use vast amounts of resources to build and heat/cool...and they are never as pretty or special as the smaller ones. Okay, that is just MY opinion!! *smile*


  8. This looks like fun! I can't stand those McMansions either! Tag on the fact that apprpriate scaled furniture is now impossible to find becasue off htose huge houses! Argh!

  9. I just stumbled across your blog and I am enjoying myself. I live in a little house (840 sq ft). I bet someone raied a family of 5 kids in here. Now you would need a home the size of a warehouse for that many kids. It really is sad.



I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
