As a nominee for the Versatile Blogger Award – there are 7 things I must share with my readers that you may not have known about me:
#1 When I was about 10 or 11 I did something very silly. I put a chicken leg bone in my hair to make me look like Pebbles Flintstone. Yeah, I know – hairbrained idea! But, you know, anything to make my twin sister laugh was double the fun. I hope there were many other things I did to reveal that I was just another “goofy kid” in the family.
#2 – I answer to the call of
That’s what I’ve been called by my son since he was a tween. What a kids’ definition of a mommorson is, I have no idea. But, nevertheless, I am very proud to be his “Mommorson!!”
#3 I am the world’s worst Clarinet player – other than my twin sister. My father nearly went bankrupt having to buy so many reeds for my musical instrument. And I couldn’t keep it from squeeking.
#4 Although I have lived high up in the mountains for 44 years. My heart belongs here:
#5 In college (the early 1970s) I drove my car up the Long Trail (extension of the Appalachian Trail) rather than hiking it. Yeah, well, what can I say. Students get weird ideas that make parents cringe!
#6 I can walk well on stilts! I had a pair just like these that my Dad made for me.
#7 Back in 1974 (or was it 73?) I caught me a leprechuan.
I have been with him ever since !
I follow Sally Edelstein’s blog because I like nostalgia. She writes about things baby boomers appreciate. I enjoy visiting Renee Rivers’ blog because she goes places I have never been before. I can travel through her via my armchair. I tried following Renee on my stilts but my hands got too calloused.
And lastly Sarah Ward’s blog, Stars and Rainbows, I nominate because I like her ponderings on life and the honesty and openness with which she writes.
This blog is brought to you by award-winning author Sue Batton Leonard and a many would say a “Versatile Blogger!”
