Over at Gayla's site the bluecollar team has been tagged with one of those meme's. I am one of the team so here I go.I have to....
List 7 random facts/habits about yourself. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. You need to tag others and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!
I.) I was born In Marville France. My father was in the Air Force so we traveled around a lot. I also lived in Lahrs Germany, Metz France, Trenton Ontario, Centralia Ontario and London Ontario. I am in the forth row at the end of the row. This is when we lived in Metz.

2.) When I was 12 years old I won First Place trophy for all of Ontario for Shotput. Then for the finals I won Second Place, for all of Canada.
Grunt grunt! *S*

3.) I loved sports when I was younger. Baseball was my favorite. I golfed, I played volleyball, loved bowling. I would play street hockey with my brother and friends.

4. I love to write poetry, mainly poetry about the folks that are dearest to me. I also love to write poetry about the Lord.

5. Late at night I love to put my PJs on and sit and watch old movies with a box of klennex. The later the better so that no one sees me blubbering.

6. Not one of my proudest moments was when I was around 9 years old, a friend of mine had the most beautifulist hair you ever seen. It was down past her waist and I was very envious. One day I remember convincing her that we should play hair dressers! I let her cut my hair which was just past my shoulders, then I cut her hair the same length as mine *S*S* dare to say I couldn't sit down for a day or two.

7)When I was young, I walked in my sleep.I usually would
go down stairs and my parents would take me back to my bed and all would be fine. There was one night my parents never forgot. I went to bed as usual and later in the night, I headed down stairs and out the front door. I walked 2 blocks in my sleep and luckily friends of my parents were walking by and led me home. I have to admit, and my parents will verify this ...I made there lives interesting.....and lastly I will add my favorite color is green. *S*

I'll tag....

I've been sleeping at the wheel lately, Cristina, and just now found your tag! I'll try to think of some interesting these about me. I'm not sure I know enough people to tag though. :o( I do have some interesting things about Canada that you might be interested in! My sister can relate to the sleep walking thing maybe I'll sneak that story in even though its not about me! What is shotput? I was never a sports person myself so don't be surprised to know that I don't know what that is! We do have some things in common though! See ya later!

Sounds like you have traveled quite a bit even without the sleep walking. I am looking forward to reading more of your Christian poems over on Bluecollar.

Cristina, world traveler. That picture of you in class... You and I are the same age (50), why does that picture look like it was taken in the 1920's?

Shot-putter, eh? I like that! great accomplishments you have there. Good stuff.

Please put this post over at bluecollar. I'm sure there are people who would love to read this of you there, as I did here.

I second Mark's suggestion to post this as well over at 'bluecollar.' I loved reading more about you here.
I really wish I lived closer to you so we could stay up at night together to share #5. That sounds like something I'd like to do.
I stay up late at night too.

Hi Sarah,
You are a very intersting young lady and I am glad the Lord brought you into my life. Shotput is a sport where you have a heavy metal ball between your neck and shoulder and keep it tight to the neck as you throw it…and it seems to go farther if you throw it and make a loud grunting noise, when I think back I have to laugh, I would never do that today. I see how we can relate a bit as children hehe. I would love to hear about what you have to share about Canada!

Hi Jazz,
Lol….We did travel a lot, but you know I think I would have perfered to just live in one town. It was not always easy adjusting to new towns and people. It took its toll on me until we settled in London. I was glad when my dad retired from the AirForce finally.

Hi Mark,
Thank you. And yes does it ever look like the 20s..when girls wore dresses. I was showing the picture to one of the fellows I take care of and I when I said out loud “This picture was 41 years old”. I thought oh my goodness, I’m old hehe..

Hi Susan,
Thank you Susan. It is too bad we don’t live closer. I love to watch the old classic movies. My husband calls them “Chick flicks” lol.
