i would like to thank the academy...

Gosh golly my stars.  I've been nominated for a "Beautiful Blogger Award" by Cynthia, at beatnheart.  Thank you Cynthia!  These are the rules of the Award. 

1. Thank the person who gave you the award - check.
2. Share 7 random things about yourself. (that should be easy, I do it every day).
3. Pass the award along to 15 others.  (I won't be doing this one; my 15 favorite blogs probably already have this award.)
4. Contact the bloggers you picked and let them know.  (see #3).

I am going to try and pick 7 very random things about myself that I possibly haven't told you already and feel probably would not come up during the course of our regular conversations.  Hmmmmm.....here were go.
1. I do not like to touch cotton or styrofoam.  I am getting the shivers just thinking about it.  Andrew Henry and the daughter have to do this chore for me (like pulling cotton out of an aspirin jar - icky).
2. I do almost everything left-handed, except write and cut with scissors.
3. I had my first surgery while spending the summer in England when I was 9 or 10 and my last one (hopefully) last year.
4. Cary Grant is my favorite actor of all time.
5. I don't like ketchup, pickles, mustard or mayonnaise.
6. My mother, daughter and I were all born on a Thursday, during a year that ended in 6.
7. I can rattle off all 50 states in alphabetical order, very, very fast.
If you feel like commenting, tell us one random fact about yourself. 
Thanks again Cynthia!

Are you crazy, on Sunday morning at 4:53 am daylight savings time? OK, here's my fact; I was once described as "lean and mean, the artisan of finesse."Yes, that was high school athletics and if they could only see me now.I continually pick myself up off the ground because my size 11 feet (they were 10's prior to children) keep getting in the way of where I want to go.I do try to recover gracefully though. www.etsy.com/shop/RockinJ9designs

Good Morning Jeanette, I love the way you declined passing the award on...I was freaking out about doing this..I didn't know enough people. Another lesson for me! Really , you can decline things gracefully without causing any hurt feelings..I am always trying to please! Thank you for this valuable lesson. Have a wonderful Sunday. Cynthia

That's exciting! Your first award of many I am sure... My random fact: I like ten dollar bills more than any other denomination. Nope, I don't know why. Just do.

I've never been drunk - probably haven't had more than 8oz of liquor my entire life. Why am I a teatotaler? -- I hate to throw-up. And the remote possibly of that happening has kept me from drinking my whole life. But there have been days.......

Maria said...

Hooray! Congrats! 1st of many I am sure.
Random thing.....I was in the 11th grade before I was informed that I tied my shoe laces backwards, thereby causing the bow to rest vertically instead of horizontally on the laces. I had learned while watching my mother tie my own shoes - so my viewpoint was upside down. Tot his day, I double check them and have found myself being overly careful when teaching my eldest son! (wonder how many of you will check your sneakers?)
