25 Things about me...11 to 25

The next 15 items, totaling 25 with this entry, are short; so I put them all up...don't want you to lose interest...keep it short and sweet, I say. Here goes: 11. I used to beat up the boys in my neighborhood. Let’s not go there in any form of deep psychological analysis; let’s just say I was a tomboy and outran, outplayed, and just about outdid the boys back then. 12. Mom put me in Glamour School and made me take Elocution classes to smooth out the tomboy in me. It worked. I can walk a straight line with a book on top of my head without tripping or dropping the book. I can even answer the phone with the etiquette of a lady. Imagine that! 13. If it weren’t for the math and sciences I would be a veterinarian today. 14. I hiked across a 3 mile crater of an active volcano in Hawaii, sniffed the sulfur, and fantasized in the rainforest that took me down to the crater. 15. I rode on another boyfriend’s motorcycle from Denver, CO to Colorado Springs, Co. Like a little girl, the smile on my face told it all. 16. Although friends say it isn’t so, I consider myself solitary and somewhat of a loner. I am resourceful in entertaining myself and challenging myself. One may say I am independent. 17. I study and interpret dreams. Tell me yours. I will be gentle and compassionate in my interpretation, but I will tell the truth in what I see. 18. I enjoy silver and turquoise. I have tried to move my jewelry interests over to diamonds and gold, but alas it is the silver that beckons me. 19. I don’t care much for whatever is in style at the moment. I am a conservative dresser tending towards the classic. The turquoise goes great with the look. 20. I am single…duh! But did you know I’ve been single longer than I’ve been married? 21. I am actively searching for the man who will put up with my antics. 22. I love peanut butter and I put it on broccoli…and, I eat it raw! 23. The “zone” in the cosmetic weight charts gives one 25 pounds to play with. I have gone from the top of my zone to the bottom of my zone in four months. Now I have to go shopping. 24. I hate shopping! 25. The greatest joy in my life is being a Mom and now being a Grandmother. OK, Folks! Your turn!!!! Karen

I took a modeling class, too; but I doubt I could still carry a book on my head:( Guess I don't need to. Silver & turquoise in one of my favs but I do love gold & diamonds:) They all go well with anything :).....

when you get to be my age sometime its hard to walk a straight line with or without a book on your head. Very nice to read all about you but I wouldn't have anything to say near as interesting.
