An Award...

Okay, so I was actually nominated for this ages ago. It all came down while Dad was sick and then I lost the link and then ignored the repeat email for far too long, but here it is now...


  1. Link back and thank the blogger who nominated you in your post. Thank you, AVA! (Ava has apparently been kidnapped by Carnies, again. It's a trend. You learn to live with it! lol) 
  2. List 11 random facts about yourself.  (I'll do the best I can...)
  3. Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you. (Okay, then...) 
  4. Pick 5 – 10 new bloggers to nominate. (Everyone I know has already done this... especially since I'm so late with this...)
  5. Ask them 11 new questions. Do not re-nominate the blogger who nominated you. (not going to happen....)
  6. Go to each blogger’s site and inform them of their nomination. (Also... not going to happen...)
Eleven Random Facts About Me:
1. I am the middle of five children - two older brothers, two younger sisters. I like to think that I'm the boss of them - always have - but that's not true.
2. I married my high school sweetheart. I didn't like him when I first met him. I like him a whole heck of a lot now... :)
3. We have four children, and a son and daughter-in-law who our like are own. 
4. I miss my truck! It's been in the shop since May. Anyone have any tires for cheap?
5. I have a secret that I can't tell you yet...
6. I can't sing. Luckily, my kids can and they're good!
7. I hate crowds and tight spaces.
8. I love camping. 
9. We have three cats (2 kittens and an antisocial grown cat), and a puppy (10 month old Elsa - who is in her second puppy stage at the moment...OY!) I don't know what we were thinking...
10. Oh, Really? Only at 10? Ugh... I was once bitten by a shark on the North Carolina coast...
11. Ten is a lie... No really...
So onto the next part...

11 QUESTIONS From ava: 

  1. What is the most unusual thing you've had a character in your stories do? Step on a skull. (That one is still a work in progress...)
  2. What is the craziest thing you've ever done in your life? I really don't think you want me to answer that... 
  3. Using the ancient form of Haiku (17 syllables) describe your blog. Suck, suck, suck, I try, But mostly suck. Want not to suck. But I still do...
  4. What type of a vacation would be absolute torture for you? A stuffed-full amusement park with two hour long wait times.
  5. Why did you start to write? Because I couldn't not. 
  6. What is one thing on your bucket list that you haven't crossed off yet? Too many... Biggest one could be Venice. 
  7. What is your favorite comfort food? Captain Morgan. (not food, but should still count.)
  8. What charity or non profit is closest to your heart? Cancer Research. 
  9. What movie had the best movie kiss ever? That's a complete toss up. There are so many... Most favorite though... Aragorn and Arwen in Return of the King. 
  10. Star Wars or Star Trek? Old or new? Old Star Wars and New Star Trek, but I do love the old Star Trek, too. There are good things about all... Don't get me started...
  11. Make up any question you want and answer it here. Why am I doing this? I don't know... LOL  

Okay, so that's it.

I'm with you on hating amusement parks and crowds and I love the new Star Trek.

I'm glad I'm not alone on the crowd thing, Sue! I didn't think I would like the new Star Trek at first, but Wow! I love it so much!
