8 Random Things About Me

Bethany Sue, CFO, tagged me to list 8 Random Things About me, so here you go:

1. I was raised on a tobacco farm in the South. I was driving the tractor that pulled the tobacco harvester when I was 8 and wore no hat, had no umbrella and nobody ever heard of sunscreen. I graduated to working on the harvester when I was about 12, not as boring and shielded from the sun at least!

2. I wanted to be a veterinarian when I was growing up. That was before I found out I was afraid of big dogs!

3. I was born on George Washington's birthday and when my Mama asked the doctor if I was a boy or girl, he said, "Well, you sure can't name her George!".

4. My first job after the farm was the refund and exchange clerk/telephone answer person at Woolco Department Store. I was supposed to answer the phone by saying, "Thank you for calling Woolco Department Store, we want to be your favorite store, can I help you." By the time I said all that, the customer forgot what they were calling for!

5. Riding in cars makes me nervous. I don't like to drive in unfamilar places or in the rain. My least favorite thing about being a parent was ridng with teenagers learning how to drive!

6. I'm a carb addict. Not sweets, but salty stuff. I could eat Doritos and potato chips 3 times a day! My very, very favorite food is spaghetti. Love it!

7. My middle name is Louise and I was named after my Mama's sister, Louise, the oldest of 11 children.

8. My favorite thing to do is simply to be at home. I especially like to be home in Fall and Winter and being snowed in is wonderful!

Hi! Thanks for the nice comment on the little girl's outfit I made!
I like salty things, too. I'm so happy that I've always had perfect blood pressure. Boy, if I had to worry about salt, I'd be in trouble. Give me a soft pretzel or a buttered piece of Italian bread over cake, any day!
The last kid of my four I drove with was my oldest, and since then I let either my husband or professinals do the teaching. I'm too nervous, too! I like riding in cars...but I hate, despise and detest driving them! (Which is probably good for what gas costs.)

I enjoyed reading your random things. I'll think about it while I'm at work today and try to post mine tonight. Thanks, I do feel better today!

Great job! Maybe you can give me some tips on loving being at home more. I like to run all over the place and that results in a crankly toddler!
