Getting Random, Just For The Fun Of It

Lea, my blogging pal at Shabby Olde Potting Shed, tagged me for a Random MeMe. I'm to share 7 random things about myself and then tag 7 other blogging friends to do the same.

So, here goes:

  • I love waterfalls! My husband Rob took that photo on a recent weekend hike with a close buddy.

  • When I get nervous, I tend to laugh. You should have heard me the first time I tried rock climbing. Once I got down, the instructor looked at me and said, "You didn't hear a word I said, did you? My reply? "Nope. But I'm on the ground--and I'm smiling."

  • My favorite treat? Jellybeans! I like my sugar with just a little bit of added color.

  • Up until this year, I could say I had never eaten brussel sprouts. I am now sorry to say that I have tasted exactly one brussel sprout. And I confess I spit it out.

  • I am a twin. My sister, Brenda, was born 4 minutes after me, which makes me the older sister. Brenda and I are fraternal twins. We couldn't even convince people we were sisters, much less twins, when we were growing up. No fun stories of switching places. That's Brenda in the red dress and me in the yellow dress. See, only similarity is we're both girls! Those other folks are my older brother, Bobby, my younger (and taller) brother, Kenny, and my younger sister, Theresa.

  • I hate spiders. Hates them. Hates. them. 'Nough said about that.

  • I've been to Venice once--and would love to go again. What a magical, lyrical, beautiful city. My son, Josh, took this photo when he visited there a couple of years ago.

And, I now tag these seven blogging friends to tell us some fun random things about themselves:

Tiffany, over at Tea for Tiffany
Kristi, over at KiKi's Corner
Denise, over at Teacups and Time
Marsha, over at Marsha's Musings
Laurie Ann, over at A Magnolia's Heart Beats
Lori, over at Front Porch Legacy
Nancie, over at More Than Conquerors



  • What a fun list! I'm with you on the spiders thing and I would certainly love to go to Venice one day. Lea tagged me too and I have my list posted at the end of my long blog today. Thanks for the tag! I'm so blessed by my visits to your blog. Sweet blessings to you!

  • Morning Beth! Thanks for tagging me. This will be my first MeMe to participate in. I've got to start cleaning our house this morning, so I'll come back later this evening and post. Thanks.

  • I am a laugher also. When I get hurt, or someone else falls down, etc. I start laughing. That is not appreciated if someone is injured. When I would fall or get hurt my physician husband understood my laughing but it drove him batty when he was trying to help me and I'm giggling and holding an injured part of my body. Lucille Ball comes to mind and frustrated Desi!!!

    I love your writing....hope some of it will rub off on me.

    God bless you.
