Alphabetical Tag...

There are a few different versions of these making the rounds of blogland - some with the same questions and some different. Soooo, I combined two I saw the most and played that way. It's an open tag so just play along if you like.

A is for age: 64 chronologically, about 40 otherwise

A - Available or single: single, no... available? - we'll talk! ;)

B is for beer: can't stand the stuff - all it does is give me a headache and make me have to pee

B - Best friend: they're all the best - Ruthie and the Claudias - the best!

C is for career: not anymore but back in the day - administrative asst/office mgr in
the satellite communications field
C - Cake or pie: cake, thank you - preferably lemon w/coconut icing

D is for my dog's name: don't have a dog, I'm really a cat people and have two; in the past, though, we've had a Snoball,
a Shelly, a Togo, a Mickey, and a Rusty of the canine beasties (not all at the same time!)
D - Drink of choice: coffee, with 1/2 & 1/2 and sugar

E is for essential items used everyday:
my puffers (aka inhalers)

F is for favorite color: almost any shade of blue, but I've grown rather fond of red recently

G is for game: Sorry or Uno with my grands, Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit with the big
G - Gummy bears or worms: I'd eat a bear before I'd eat a worm!

N - Number of siblings: 2 sisters, one brother

O is for overnight hospital stays: yes, a few

O - Oranges or apples: oranges

P is for people I was with today: Lew

P - Phobias or fears: hmmmm, nothing incapacitating but I have a naggy anxiety of
driving over water - probably cuz I don't think I could save myself anymore

Q is for quote: oh, I have so many favorites, this is just one:

"You're living the life you chose.

If you don't like it... choose something different."

Jim Fay

R is for biggest regret: hmmm, probably that I didn't quit smoking about 30 years earlier

R - Reasons to smile: six wonderful children, seven darling grandkiddies, 2 kittycats,
and one goofy husband!

S is for sport: can't name just one - football and tennis

S - Season: Spring, and the brand new, fresh life that comes with it

T is for travelled to: this could take awhile - so I'll just go with 22 states, Canada,
Barbados, and St. Maarten
T - Tag 3 or 4 people: I'm gonna make it an open tag - anyone who wants to play can,
but you don't have to iffen you don't want to

U is for current underwear: that definitely falls under the "need to know" category
and y'all just don't need to know - suffice it to say that yes, I do do underwear.
U - Unknown fact about me: well duh-huh! if I told, then it wouldn't be unknown,
would it? Okay, okay, my online buds probably don't know that I have about a 3-1/2 x 1/4", 25-stitch scar on the inside of my left arm from sticking it through a door window when I was a kid - you can still count the stitch marks.

Y - Your fave food: crab legs slathered in melted butter

There you go - y'all were just waiting with bated breath to know more about me, huh? ;)
