I picked this little fellow up over at Mary's Writing Nook as I thought it would be fun to play. If you wish to play just pick it up and then pass it on to others. Please let me know if you wish to play and then post it and list 7 things about yourself. I will do this Letterman fashion.

7. Took a bartending class and passed. Had to make 1o drinks in 10 mins. Everything had to be correct and you did not know which ten drinks you would be required to make. Had my license for one year and then did not renew them.

6. As I was growing up I was told that my Great Great Grandfather on my Fathers side was full blooded Cherokee. His last name was McMillan and I would argue that the name was Irish. This tidbit was told to me by my Dad and you never knew if it was real or memorix.

5. Did not have any hair until I was three years old. Just fuzz until then and when it came in it was snow white. Now my hair dresser wants to charge me for two haircuts since my hair is so thick.

4. I have harvested more big game than either Prince or Puppy. Have not and will not catch little brother.

3 Closet tool lover. I could spend HOURS in a hardware store and get lost for weeks on end in those big box store, touching, looking, reading.

2 Cannot buy one pair of shoes at one time. I always find 2 or 3 or more that I need. (This is due to having one pair growing up and spending summers in bare feet--very poor country girl)

1. Spent my teen years on the drag strip and love the sound of big engine and the smell of burning rubber. Ah, Christmas tree lights have a new meaning.

The kitty justice is to know me is to love a fur ball. Woowee Kat Fuzzies.

A Very interesting person you are. Did I write that backwards? I know what the Christmas Tree lights are too. I have always loved Drag Racing but spent more times at the small oval and hung out in the pits.
You grew up to be a pretty neat person. MB

Thanks. The Valley as we called the quarter mile track was one fun place to be on the weekends. I never will forget the first time I saw funny cars and rails run. What a rush. Glad you enjoyed the meme. Peace
PS My little plant is thriving so far so good.

I am glad the plant survived the winter.
Regarding your comment on my blog: rule of thumb out here (or this is what an old-timer told me)
plant after Mother's Day. And yet Sweet Peas are supposed to be planted on george Washington's Birthday. HMMmmmm!! Of course as soon as the sun shines everyone is out planting. If things do survive they just slow down and wait for the ground to warm up so you might as well wait. We all are so anxious to begin. MB

Oh By the way--the track I used to go to eas call Aurora Speedway and when they tore that down we headed south to Sky Valley. Interesting names huh. MB

Lady Di Tn said...

Thanks for the info and interestin names indeed. Peace

People have a hard time waiting to plant but Nature does it at almost anytime. Most seeds are dropped in the fall, but some hang on to the plant until mid winter and fall into snow. Some things can be planted early. Peas is one mother always planted early. Interesting post.

Dear Dianne ~~ When the weather starts to warm up, we are all anxious to plant things. I enjoyed your meme answers my friend.
Thanks for your comments and I was lucky in our storm. The trees that fell at your place must have been huge to get so many logs from one of them. lad you enjoyed the jokes.
It seems my heart is OK, but I have
emphysema from smoking for 40 years
We didn't know when I was 17 how dangerous it was. Take great care
dear friend, Love, Merle. Peace.

Sounds like you had a pretty interesting life, even if you were a poor country girl.

Sorry I haven't been
around for a while. This week has been very busy and hectic. Hope you had a relaxing week-end. And thanks for your visits.

My mind is in a frazzle - can't think! ;)

Lady Di Tn said...

I remember my Pa would plant some things early but Mother never wanted to waste her efforts. Peace

Glad to hear the ticker is okay but sorry about the smoking developments. Thoses logs came out of one limb and we still have the rest of it to remove. We just wanted to get the ones closest to the driveway out of the way. Peace

Life can be hectic and cause us not to visit and I hope all is well and slowed to a peaceful pace for you. Peace

Oh my My vision of you is a head full of frazed rags or should I say the Medusa. Peace
