Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

Tagged Your It!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Ok, Let's play Tag:
The rules:
This is a fun tag game. Each blog that is tagged needs to write on their own blog 9 random facts about themselves. Those who are tagged need to write those 9 facts as well as the rules of the game on their blog. Then you pick 9 of your favorite blogging friends and tag them and include their names and blog addys under your "random" facts. Next you will leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and to read your blog. That's it! So include your blogging friends and make new ones and get tagging!

1. I live in Southern CA now but I was originally born and raised in upstate [Buffalo] New York. I moved to CA the first time in 1971 and was married with 2 kids. I then made trips back and forth from NY to Buffalo, across the USA 10 times. I finally settled, for good, here in Southern CA where I now live.

2. My first career I worked in the retail business as a meat wrapper for 12 years; and then I was an insurance Bodily Injury adjuster for the next 12 years; my last and present career I decided to become a grade school teacher. I guess your never too old to learn something new!

3. I married my DH 2x. [The love of my life] The first time around we were not prepared, but this time is the best time of my life! You know what they say, "If you don't suceed the first time around, Try Try again!" It works!!!!

4. I attended Woodstock in 1969. Yes.. Yes I was a hippy then, but I am.. what is it called now??? Oh yes... a "Yuppie" now! LOL...I must say that the experience was not fun, there was no food, no water, and no bathrooms. I actually slept under a semi-truck to get out of the rain..What things we do in our youth!

5. I collect Marilyn Monroe memorabilia and have her pictures and items all over my computer room. Of course I also collect Garfield so she has to share the spot light with him, too!

6. I used to own horses when I was around 12 years old and then in 1989 I got horses again for about 13 years when I lived in an equestrian town and I wore a cowboy hat and cowboy boots and danced a good two-step, too.

7. I used to own a "Curio" shop across from a college in Buffalo, NY in the 1970s. It was so much fun and I made crafty things. One thing I made was a nail art picture [remember them?] Anyways, one of my first orders for was from a motorcycle gang and when they came in to order it from me I almost cried I was so scared. But, I later found out that they were actually pretty business like and fun to talk to. Now... remember I was very young at the time!

8. I just started on my first pair of knitted socks! I am so excited that I can hardly stand it. I have bought Cascade # 220-Kauai and can't wait to see how they turn out.

9. I love to read, when I am not knitting or crocheting. Reading mystery and thrillers is my main passion, but I love Debbie Macomber books also. I am a nut about trying to figure out plots the spookier the better! I am also a big Harry Potter fan.

Now for who I tag. Hope you don’t mind.

  1. You've got many interesting facts to share, that's cool. I seem not to have any, I'm the opposite of adventurous ;)
    Thanks for tagging me! But I have not participated in memes, because I don't want to disclose anything of personal nature, because I'm not at ease of the local people (in Philippines) reading my blog.


Thank you for stopping by, I really enjoy comments and try to answer everyone, become a follower and never miss any future posts. Be sure to check out my Etsy shop, the link is to the side!
