A Major Award!

Thank you to Hawkeye, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever who has his own blog browndogcbr for giving me this special award!


I’m supposed to tell you seven things about myself…I’m wondering what it is you don’t already know about me…let’s see…

1.  I was truly an accident. My mother had her tubes tied for seven years before I came along.  She told the doctor if I was a boy, he was a father, because she wasn’t taking home another boy.

2.  I have worked as an EMT on an ambulance.

3.  I’ve written news for television broadcast.

4.  I delivered singing telegrams when I was young and brave.

5.  I once played Rudolph the Red-Nosed reindeer in sixth grade, as well as Yenta the Matchmaker (same grade). I was never brave enough to pursue drama.  I cave at auditions.

6.  I wanted to be a PSA stewardess something fierce. By the time I was old enough, PSA was gone. (see their 1970s uniforms here…)

7.  I love to cook and bake.  I’m not bad at it either.

Tell me two (or more) things about yourself I don’t know, why don’t cha?


Congratulations on your award

You must have really been a surprise!

Two things about me? I once got a private tour of the White House with a few college friends. At one time I worked as a sign language interpreter. I guess I'm not that exciting!

I know how to throw (make) pottery on a wheel and my earliest memory is being bit by a praying mantis. Since they are so big, I started to pet it, "Nice green thing," and it bit me! Bugger!

Oh...I just got the title to your post and I had to comment; isn't that the best Xmas movie, ever?
Almost every line in that movie is a keeper.
I've always thought how wonderful to have been in a movie that will be a classic in time, bringing joy to others, long after you're gone.
...except I didn't say fudge! That is my favourite movie too SuzieQ! Brilliant little film.

Barbara, I agree, there are no accidents. Just surprises! And thank God because you make us laugh now. (Love your tag "I tasted dog food!" So random!)

Congratulations on the award. I loved reading about your jobs, you've done a little bit of everything.

Your mom's remarks to the doctor were so cute.
I was a big surprise too. My brother was 5 years older than me, and she was told she couldn't have anymore children.

Hmmm, what don't you know about me.....I worked for an orthodontist for 15 years doing lab work.
Before Alzheimer's entered our life, my job was volunteering. I volunteered for everything, including cleaning dog poop from the cages at our humane shelter...
congrats on the award! I really love these awards because we get to find out things about you that we may not otherwise!

Two things about me?
Since you love 'vintage' I'll tell you that the only movie I've ever snuck into was American Gigolo, it was rated 'R' and my friends and I at 17 weren't old enough to get in--We saw it just after Electric Horseman! :-)))

Quite a varied career Miss Barbara! The EMT gig must have been interesting. Hey, not too much is ever 'planned' in this life anyway, is it?
