I guess, because you can't know enough about Straight Shooter...

So I snagged this from my fellow Okie Blogger Jenni at One Thing. Why? Because I can use it to learn more about you Dear Reader! And because I am out of town and forgot my camera cable to upload some pix so as to help break up the constant stream of words, words, words!

Oh man! I only went up as high in the Statue of Liberty as the elevator would take me. The friend I was with has cerebral palsy and uses a walker and couldn't take the stairs.

Been stung by more bees than I can count. And wasps.

Just got a cell phone two years ago.

Slept under stars.

Can't remember any others.

I had your post in my sights first thing this morning... got distracted... had to go take care of some business. I forgot to finish. Shame on me.
Well here goes,
Our things in common:

I have watched a sunrise and sunset. Actually many of them. There was a time when I could'nt recall the last time I had taken the time... that is when you are too darned busy and self-evaluation is needed as far as priorities go.

Yes. I have sung karoke in a restaurant in front of many families during bring your family night. Children allowed.

I have visited the White House too. Right before Pres. Carter left and Pres. Reagan took office.
I went my senior year of High School and actually sat in on some hearings in congress and got to see what lobbying was firsthand.

Stung by a bee? Yep! several times. The last time the reaction was not good. I was told I needed to carry an epi-pen. I did for years and never got stung. So I hope that doesn't happen again. It could kill me without medical attention.

Lost a Loved One. Too Many! The hardest one was my Mother 5 years ago.

I have lots more in common with you but I won't list them all here. I plan a similar post in the next few days.

It was fun getting to know you better... you should pick a few to elaborate on. If time permits.

1. I have climbed a mountain...the Sandia Crest. We didn't climb from bottom to top, but from peak to crest...don't know how you can go from peak to crest, but that's what they called it. It's in Albuquerque, NM.

2. I have pieced at least 4 quilts. Each of my children have a log cabin quilt I've made and we have one for our bed as well.

3. I have watched a meteor shower. When I was living at home a friend of ours told us about a meteor shower that was coming in the middle of the night. He spent the night and we got up in the wee hours of the morning and watched it while laying on a big trampoline. It was cool!!!

4. I have kind of gone skinny dipping...that's all you need to know!!!!!

5. I have been fired from a job...as a teen, I was fired from the floral shop in our small town. I was not keeping up with what the owner expected of me...oh, well.
