10 things you don't know about me




1. The photo of my black clown is really "Black Peter". He's the anti-santa - the Santa for bad children. I have a collection of Black Peters.
2. I also don't do amusement parks. I will walk thru, but even the up and down and around and around on a merry-go- round is not for me. I have never been on a roller coaster, and will die not getting on one.
3. I love water - lakes, oceans, rivers, you name it. I love seeing water, photographing it. Even in pools, even in my hot tub, I love water. I won't drink it. Ever.
4. Long ago I learned I like all animals more than most people. They give unconditional love, and expect nothing but food and a pat on the head in return. MOST people, not my family, my close friends, and anyone who scrapbooks. :)
5. I hate ham. I eat ham at Easter because you are supposed to. But I'm not a ham eater.
6. I had a relative sink with the Titanic.
7. I have assisted in airplane crashes bringing the dead to be identified by taking X-rays.
8. I'm terrified of snakes.
9. I believe I'll die from falling. I fall a LOT. My aunt did too. I think it's because I move too quickly.
10. I met and had lunch in a small group with Mamie Eisenhower, and have shook Bobby Kennedy's hand.

Sharon ... I must say that I think your list is pretty interesting. Lots more than mine is anyway! I remember when Ike was in the White House and how Mamie loved all things pink ... it is really cool that you had lunch with her. You should blog that entire story ... and the one about shaking B. Kennedy's hand too. The closest I ever got to a president was seeing JFK in a parade. I'm not a roller coaster gal either, but I do love ham!

That is a great list of random thoughts about you.
I'm with you on the water thing- I love it and lying in a bath is one of my favourite places but unlike you I love to drink it.
