One Lovely Blog Award

     Several weeks ago Spinster Beth nominated me for this award.  Thanks so much, Beth, I really appreciate it. I couldn't believe how long it took me to come up with seven things about myself.  To accept the award, I need to:
1. Thank and holla-back to the person who awarded me, Beth:
2. Share 7 things about myself;
3. Nominate up to 15 blogs that I admire;
4. Notify the nominee(s) of the award!
1.       I am the oldest of 6 six children.  I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers.  Not one of them knits, crochets or sews!
      2.       I am a U.S. Army veteran
3.       I hate watching anyone brush or floss their teeth, even on TV.   I hate having anyone watch me do either.
4.       I loathe cooked carrots, but, I love raw ones.  However, I am adult enough to eat them when served them in public.
5.      I graduated from the oldest all-girls public high school.  Western High School (Baltimore City) was founded in 1844 and is still an all-girls high school.  Western has had several famous graduates; I am not one of them.
6.       I hate to cook! On our first date DH asked me what I like to eat.  My answer anything I don’t have to cook.  He said seriously what do you make best, I said reservations.  We dated for months before he knew I could cook.  I’ve been told I’m a good cook; maybe, but it’s not my activity of choice!
7.     I am a history buff.  I participated in a local Buffalo Soldier unit for several years and had quite a collection of memorabilia.  I’ve been known read extensively on a subject that interests me.  I often think about writing a fictionalized account of a little known female soldier.
      Here are some blogs I follow:   Deb, Sharon, Beverly, Two Cables, Miss Ginny, and Faye.

I loved that - so interesting. Buffalo soldier, eh. I hear Bob Marley :) We're so different, apart from color. I grew up on an organic farm and so cooking is in my marrow. In fact, there were carrots in our dinner tonight. I'm married to the Vet in this household!
