Eight Random Things about Me:
1. I am a native Californian. My parents and 3/4 of my grandparents are native Californians. If you look at the right branch of the family tree, I am a fifth generation Californian. I live within 15 miles of where I was born. Okay, I did spend much of my childhood in Massachusetts and 15 years in Seattle, but I have lived in the Bay Area longer than anywhere else.
2. I am married to a native Californian. Just happened that way.
3. I don't have a middle name. I probably won't ever have one as I decided to keep my maiden name when I got married.
4. I wish I had gray hair. The genes for gray hair seem to have passed me by. My brother started going gray at 17. Harrumph!
5. I asked Kay for a random fact about me. She says that I am bossy. (I walked right into that one didn't I?) Roger might agree, but he is not here to consult. I think it is my maternal instinct that is bossy.
6. I can take marathon baths. Two hours with a magazine is not uncommon. Sometimes I am in there so long that Roger will bring me a snack. Just one of the reasons I love that man.
7. The first sock I ever knit was a Fair Isle patterned Christmas stocking. I used a man's sock pattern from a book of patterns to designed to help the women at home support the soldiers in World War I (published in 1916?). I wish I knew where that book was. I keep thinking that it will show up in some long buried UFO box. I hope so.
8. I had terrible nightmares as a child. Sometimes I am still afraid of the dark.
I don't tag people with memes. If you want to do it, please consider yourself tagged. Then let me know so I don't miss your random facts.
Why does he want to run away from this? Okay, mixed up rescue dog, still not completely at ease, these things take time . . . but sheesh, that is the good stuff right there.
