About me... or NOT

1. I used to drive an 18 wheeler in another life in 1983.

2. I really like this quote
 "The more I see of man, the more I like dogs. ~Mme. de Staël"

3. In 1944 my dad was a meat cutter, part of his pay was a crate of Carnation Milk to feed me (could be why I am a pillsbury dough girl).

4. this will come as a shocker to all your regular blog friends. "I love Animals" all of them with a great big soft spot for dogs.

5. Born In Georgia, raised in Kentucky and lived in Florida for 26 years. that makes me Southern to the bone. I was teased a lot when I first moved here. I worked in Sears Automotive as greeter/dispatcher to the automotive back shop. I had to page people on the phone system. there were about 20 mechanics and each time I paged, they would all mimic me by saying fivvvvvvve twwwooooo fivvvvvve ohhhhhhhhh, all together (can you hear that drawl). Sears automotive is where I met my husband, he was one of the mechanics. that was in May of 84, we were married in Feb of 85 and now I can say 5250 with out drawling (unless I go home to Georiga for a few days, then it all comes back).

Ann of Anns Snap and Edit received and passed on a Stylish Blogger award and I want to thank her and tell a few things about me that you might not know. All my blogger friends deserve the award, so drop by Ann's blog for a visit and grab that reward if you want it. Each of us has our own 'style' and I think we ALL deserve that award. thank you Ann, for thinking of me.





I will stop at 5 and say one last thing. I love Bloggin!!!! and all the friends I have made in the past year from all over the world.

Well, I don't think I knew some of these things! Like Bob being a mechanic and you meeting him at Sears. Sandra, sit down. Because this will bllow your mind. I was a page operator and Phil worked where I did, that's how we met. We also had almost the same length of engagament that you and Bob had. The employees used to talk about my paging voice all the time.

I knew you had a very cool style the first time I read your blog and it was an honor to pass the award on to you. Enjoyed reading your 5 things and I like the way you passed this along. Have a great day

We moved from Oklahoma to Mississippi when Nyssa was 3. She developed that long drawn out fiiiiiiivvvveee as well. Most noticeable when she said "Myyyyy eyyyyeeees are tiiiiiiiired!" That long "i" sound can go on forever!

I don't have an accent... being a preacher's kid and living in Virginia, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Oklahoma and Mississippi as well as a stint in Texas, has really messed mine all around. I guess it could be described as ubiquitous now.

It was fun getting to know you this way. You drove an 18 wheeler??? OMG..you are my HERO! haa

My dad was also a butcher for awhile and I married a mechanic who never worked at Sears however. When I got to Alaska I worked hard to get rid of my drawl, everyone up there thought I was from Texas!

Getting to know you better is great, I always like these little snippets of info about fellow bloggers.

I'm very impressed to learn that you once drove an 18-wheeler. When my parents moved from Indiana to Tennessee back in 1963, the neighborhood kids couldn't get over how fast my mother talked!

Yes..both our husband's are mechanics..but wasn't sure you mentioned meeting him there before? Ok, I think I can identify with the second quote..more than ever now!(nice smile)
Congrats and hugs to you!
