Thank you Janice…


Thank you Janice for the award that you have given me and the very nice words you said about me.  I am honored.  This is the second Kreativ Blogger Award I have been given.

Now I am supposed to answer 7 questions about me

  1. What is my favorite song?   I have so many it is hard to choose one.  I will choose ‘Till I’m Too Old Too Die Young’ sung by Moe Bandy followed closely by ‘I Won’t Take Less Than Your Love’ with Paul Overstreet and Tanya Tucker.
  2. What is my favorite dessert?  Homemade lemon meringue pie is my favorite.
  3. What do I do when upset?  I usually call my sis in West Virginia and she listens to me cry and talk about it for however as long as it takes.  That is why sisters are so special.  They have known you all of your life and they love and understand you like no one else ever will.
  4. What is my favorite pet?  I don’t have a pet but I appreciate the pets that my friends cherish.
  5. Which do I prefer white or wheat bread?  I really prefer white bread but when my daughter is with me I feel obligated to buy wheat.  Smile
  6. What is my biggest fear?  My biggest fear was losing my husband to cancer.  That happened and I still have faith in God so I share my fears with Him.
  7. What is my attitude mostly?  I try to have a positive attitude and greet each day with a big thank you.

10 random facts about me:

I have answered these so many different times through my blogging (7) years.  For my early blogging friends, just skip through these.

  1. I would love to be able to sing but I can’t carry a tune in a bushel basket.
  2. I  used to love to cook but it’s no fun anymore.
  3. I had a long working career spanning almost 35 years, beginning with the telephone company and ending  in civil service at an AFB.
  4. I have green eyes.
  5. I met the love of my life in July, engaged in September and married in December.
  6. I was born in Missouri.
  7. So of course I am a huge St. Louis Cardinal fan.
  8. I always wanted to be a beautician.
  9. I get very emotional when I think of our troops in foreign countries.
  10. I pray each day for peace on earth.


I encourage anyone who wants to answer these question in a blog to do so.

Stay safe and be happy!!
