Silly Stuff

When I first started blogging last year, I decided I wanted it to be sort of my journal with pictures. I've tried to stick to that and have resisted responding when I've been tagged. Most of the times when someone has tagged me it's been to pick a certain picture from a certain file and explain it or to list a certain number of facts about myself.

So far I have avoided doing either of those things, but I decided today to do it in my own way. I keep my photos everywhere. I have albums of printed photos. I have cds full of unprinted photos and I have photos on both my computers. I'm not sure which would be my fifth or sixth file, so I'm just posting some random photos that I find amusing.

Now for some things about me.

1. I want to live in New England even though I've never been there.

2. I am attracted to the colors pink and purple and my favorite color is fuchsia.

3. At one time when I lived in Myrtle Beach, SC I owned thirty swimsuits.

4. I have driven boats in both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

5. I have never had a driver's license.

6. I am a chocoholic.

7. My dream was to be a veterinarian.

8. I worked in accounting for years, although I hated it.

9. I prefer the company of animals to most people.

10. I learned to knit when I was five years old.

11. At one time I made most of my own clothes.

12. I have traveled to Canada, Mexico, Trinidad, Tobago, Aruba, Finland, Denmark and the USSR.

13. I have recently developed a fear of flying.

14. I taught myself to play the piano.

What's for lunch?

15. I love to read and wish I had more time to do it.

16. I don't swim.

17. I have a collection of windchimes.

18. I love shopping, but do most of mine online.

19. is my favorite online store.

20. I am a member of The Society of the Daughters of the Founders and Patriots.

21. I am a member of The Descendants of the Founders of Hartford, Connecticut.

22. I am a Mac by choice and a PC by necessity.

23. (The next couple of tags are from Robert the gray one you sometimes see in the background)

24. Our best man picked her out for me.

25. One of those bathing suits is my favorite.

26. We met in Acapulco, Mexico and married in Mexico, New York.

27. I am not the same person she married.

Vroom, vroom!

Thank you, Sue. That was a fun read. Of course, I always enjoy your photos of your pack, so the tidbits about you were a special treat!

Well I was matching you "me too" for the first couple but you lost me at 30 swimsuits! WOW.

I have been to New England (most of it) and I totally want to live there. When JB & I went through a really tough patch 12 years ago and he threatened divorce - I would have packed up and moved in a heartbeat. I'm glad we worked it out but I'm sad to not be living somewhere in Vermont. g

Excellent list! I can't imagine not driving. I've probably put half a million miles under my wheels and have not worked outside my house in 20 years...puzzle that one. 30 swimsuits is awesome, although I know you have to tan better than I do, because everyone in the world does. I have ancestors who were here before the revolution, too, although I don't have documentation for them! Descendent of Founders of Hartford! I am impressed!

Wait - you don't swim but you owned 30 swim suits?
What a lot of interests you have!
We're guessing that these knit caps have holes in them for the dog's ears?
What a fun meme! Thank you for sharing!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
