~ Versatile Blogger award ~

Good morning everyone - I'm smiling again.  Melissa from 'Lazy Daisy Crochet' has very kindly awarded my blog the 'Versatile Blogger' award.  What a great way to start my day.  :)

Now I must tell you 7 things about myself and then pass this award on to 15 bloggers - so here goes:

1.  besides my dogs Tex and Ladybug, I also have 2 gerbils - their names are Mugsy and Rocky.

2.  when I started menopause a few years ago, I would tease my son by telling him that I was going to grow a handlebar mustache (he hated that)  :)

3.  my husbands family lives in Ontario, Canada, so we spend alot of our vacations there. 

4.  after 30+ years, my husband still makes me laugh.

5.  during my short stint in the Army, I was assigned to 'Burial detail' for a couple of weeks.  I was part of the 21 gun salute (which is 7 soldiers firing 3 times).  And yes, I cried (quietly) every time.

6.  I cannot drive on major highways - I get very, very nervous - and a very, very nervous driver is not a good driver.

7.  I hate window shopping.  If I'm going to the stores - I'm going to buy something. 

Ok - now on to the 15 blogger friends that I would like to pass this award on to.  If you do not participate in awards - that's ok - I just wanted you to know that I enjoy your blog
