Me - from A to Z

I haven't blogged much lately for a couple of reasons -

1. Not much to blog about right now.


2. I've been busy.

A week or so ago I saw this on a couple of blogs I follow and thought I'd give it a go. Read on if you want to know more about me. If you don't, I understand.

A. Age: 61 as of last Sunday.
B. Bed size: King. It gives AD and I plus our 3 Yorkies more room to be comfortable, although I still sleep on the very edge of the bed because Smoke sprawls out all over. Yeah, I know, he's spoiled.
C. Chore that you hate: DUSTING!!!!!! Makes you wonder why we moved to the country, doesn't it?
D. Dogs: Elliott, Smoke, Dani and Mikey
E. Essential start to your day: Checking my email and reading blogs. You can do that when you're retired.

F. Favorite color: Blue
G. Gold or Silver: Silver
H. Height: 5' 4"

I. Instruments you play: Would a kazoo count?
J. Job title: Retired - yea!
K. Kids: 1 son. 1 daughter. 5 grandsons. 1 granddaughter.

N. Nicknames: Mom, Granny, Dear
O. Overnight hospital stays: Once for a broken arm (I grew up in the 50's/60's), 2 times having babies and 1 time for gall bladder surgery.
P. Pet peeves: People who park their shopping cart in the middle of the aisle and walk away. People who seem to go slower while getting in their car if they know someone is waiting on their parking place. (Yes, I spend a lot of time at Wally World.)

Q. Quote from a movieAllie: [lying in the middle of the street] What happens if a car comes?  Noah: We die. (from The Notebook)
R. Right or left handed: Left.
S. Siblings: 2 sisters, 1 brother.
U. Underwear: White cotton

V. Vegetable you hate: black-eyed peas
W. What makes you run late: things like cows in the road, trains, farmers on tractors
X. X-Rays you’ve had: remember that broken arm? and x-rays of my teeth
Y. Yummy food that you make: Chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes and homemade rolls.
Z. Zoo animal: It's too hard to pick just one. I like the elephants, giraffes, monkeys, lions, tigers, seals and the list could go on and on.

PS. Happy 13th birthday to Google. I don't know what I'd do without you.


  1. I'll bet that took you a good while! I don't remember half that stuff, LOL!

  2. Enjoyed reading this and learning a little more about you. I'll do it myself some day soon. These are always good "fillers". Enjoy this beautiful weather we are having here in Oklahoma. I've heard we're going to have a lot of snow this coming winter :o(

  3. What did black eyed peas ever do to you? ;) I enjoyed getting to know you a little better!

  4. I sure did enjoy your a-z list.
    I know that is hard to blog sometime also.
    have a wonderful day.

  5. What a great way to get to know blogging friends.

  6. Loved learning more about one of my favorite bloggers! Didn't realize we had so much in common -- I hate dusting {I figure the only place worse than the country for us would be the desert}, I play the kazoo, hate people that block store aisles and/or take forever to pull out when I am waiting for their spot {what are they updating their Face Book page or what?!} and I love The Notebook! :)

    Happy Autumn.

  7. We are a lot alike! A channel has been playing "The Notebook" over and over. I have caught it about five times and just love it. =)

  8. What about T? :)

  9. Now we know all about you!!

  10. @Jason - hhhmmmm. The blogger I copied this from didn't include a "T" either. Let me think -

    T. TV shows (favorites)- Hawaii 5-0, Big Bang Theory, Castle, American Pickers, Picker Sisters, Storage Wars

  11. This was just fantastic sweetie. Now you have no secrets! Heeehehhee!

    God bless ya and have a terrific Thursday!!! :o)

  12. I love your answers and getting to know you better! I think I'm going to do this soon. I like your answer for T...TV shows..I'll include that in mine!
    Have a great weekend!!

  13. That was fun. I got to the end before I realized you were doing the alphabet!!!!! hush....it's early here in Louisiana:-)

  14. I love it. Happy belated birthday!
