I was tagged by Carolyn over at Talk To Grams with this cute meme!! This will be fun and you will get to know more about me. Here goes!

Accent - I grew up in West Virginia. My first husband was in the Air Force so we lived in Texas, Mississippi and South Carolina during his tours. I've been told I have a southern draw, but honestly, I think I sound just like Walter Cronkite.

I Don't Drink - any caffeine after 1:00 p.m. If I did, I would be up all night.

Chore I hate - I hate all chores!! Oh, ok, I have to pick one. It would be unloading the dishwasher. I know this isn't hard and I can actually do it in less than 3 minutes. It is just something I hate to do.

Pets - I have one dog named CC. Her mother was a chinese crested hairless and her father a traveling salesman! She's the most lovable mutt I've seen.

Essential Electronics - My computer. How else could I enlighten you with these exciting facts about myself?

Perfume - I rarely wear perfume, but when I did I wore Liz in the red triangle bottle.

Insomnia -Oh yes!!! I take sleeping aids just about every night.

Job Title - Retired!!!!

Most Admired Trait - Probably being a true friend.

Religion - Baptist - Catholic - Baptist

Siblings - My Sister Anna Faye (but I called her Paye) died in 1992 at the age of 57. My brother Lloyd died last year on June 6 at the age of 74. I had two other sisters, Emma Lou and Betty June who died shortly after birth. They were born in the early 1930's. One was one day old and the other was 3 days old when they died. Funny how my family never talked about them, but I found some clothes of their's when I was a little girl and Mom wouldn't let me play with them. She told me they belonged to my sisters that were in heaven. That made a real impact on me. I was probably 4 or 5. I always mention them when asked how big of a family I came from. One day I'll get to meet them. Back then infant mortality was high. Mom and Daddy are also gone. I'm the only one left!!

Time I wake up - I get out of bed between 7 and 9 a.m. but don't wake up until noon.

Unusual talent/skill - I can tie a cherry stem into a knot with my tongue!!

Vegetable I refuse to eat - I can't think of one I don't like.

Worst habit - Picking my nose;) These days it would be spending too much time blogging.

X-rays - Yes. Over my lifetime I have probably had every inch of my body x-rayed at one time or another. Do any of you remember the fluorscope? I use to get one of those everytime I went to my doctor before the age of 18. My doctor had this machine in his office and he used it to monitor my heart. I believe now they are considered dangerous.

My favorite meal- It's hard to beat mashed potatoes with gravy, fresh green beans, oven baked steak, home made hot rolls and cherry pie. Yummy!!

I am tagging Daisy over at Lazy Daisy Log because I think she will have fun with this meme and anyone else who would like to do this. Just leave a comment and I'll come visit.

Have Fun!!!

Thanks for visiting my blog.
I am sooooo with you on emptying the dishwasher. Every time I empty it I say, that wasn't so bad , what's the big deal? But every time it is full, I just look at it and groan, before it gets emptied. said...

I love this meme because it does let us know more about each other!!

You have lost your siblings, too.
I am sorry I know this was hard.
Ok, everyone wants the laptop and so I had better let someone else have it!!!
Love and Hugs
