Tag - you're it!

So, Robyn over at Daisy Quilts tagged me to reveal 7 things about myself. Hmmm...not sure there are 7 interesting things to tell. So, be prepared to be shocked!!!! (I wish there was something shocking about me to tell, LOL.)

1 - I play piano and used to sing in a ladies group called Keys of Faith. We had so much fun and we thought we sounded pretty good. Just ask any of the residents at the nursing homes that we toured, we were always on pitch and knew all the words! (Sure helps when your audience doesn't hear too good.)We had offers to go on the road (actually they wanted to pay us to get out of town). I sing alto or second soprano, and sometimes tenor. Can you tell - I don't know what I sing?

2 - I once worked for the Infernal Revenue Service as a Revenue Agent. Not very popular in these neck of the woods where you might run across a moonshiner in the woods hereabouts. ... maybe not now, but you sure could when I was growing up.

3 - Speaking of growing up, I remember telephone party lines, do you? We used to have 4 other houses on our line. If you were bored, you just picked up the phone and you could hear all about what was going on in the neighborhood - including the latest price of moonshine (25cents/quart). There was always someone talking.

4 - I don't have a favorite color, do you? I like them all ! Have to wonder why I have three times more blue than any other color in my stash though.

5 - The most recent movie I saw in a theater is Mama Mia, and I loved it! Its one of the few that I have bought the soundtrack and listen to it at work.

6 - I have a two indoor cats, Felicia who is deaf, and Topsy who is going blind - both are solid white cats. Most people think I only have one cat, cause Topsy lives under the bed and doesn't come out if anyone other than family is around. She's shy, just like me.

7 - I am blessed with a wonderful husband, 3 children, 2 children-in-law, 4 grandchildren (and one on the way), a living mother and father and wonderful friends. God is good and He is my rock and my salvation.

The rules to play TAG are these: ~ Post a link to the blog that challenged you and add these rules to your post:
~ Share 7 things about yourself~ Challenge 7 other blogs at the end of your post through naming their blog and post a link to it.
~ Let them know they're been challenged by leaving a comment on their blog who should I pick. I see all of you looking down, afraid to look me in the eyes as I might pick here goes:

Karen - a courageous young woman, excellent quilter and someone who inspires me
Cathi - a quilter I have known for sometime now, but whom I am learning more about now that we share an interest in blogging - check out her blog!

Ok..I am only going to name those two, as I think I have seen the rest of you do this already on your blogs. But just in case you haven't.......TAG, YOU'RE IT!


Cathi said...

Thanks bunches! I'm starting to see why Carol and Cheryl don't have blogs. But then they are missing out on all the fun. I've already posted today so I'll wait until tomorrow to list 7 things. It'll take at least that long to think of something.

Carol in Rock Hill, SC said...

What does Cathi mean when she says Cheryl and Carol are missing out of all the fun? I truly enjoy reading both of your blogs! Have a GREAT day!

I remember party lines! What a rich, interesting part of the country you live in. And I don't really have a favorite color either -- love 'em all too!

Carole said...

Always fun to read tags! Thanks for sharing!

I enjoyed reading the fun facts about you. I can relate to party lines too. My mom wouldn't let us listen in on conversations though we would sneak and do it sometimes. LOL

Robyn said...

cool!! Thanks for playing laong I did read this days ago and I'm wondering why I didn't comment...although it's been a really busy here and there week so far.
Thanks for your comments! yes our decorations have been collected over many years and I love that part, because there are many memories attached to them.
Also thanks for the encouragement on the denim bag...I really do hope she likes it.
ok, bye for now,
Robyn xx
