Lizette Fitzpatrick tagged me for a new MeMe - for 5 months I was able to fly under the wire and not be tagged; now twice in May I have been tagged. So, here are 5 new things about me that you may or may not know about me.
I worked for a company that I was the only woman employed. We had 15 well drillers, management, all men and me. My job was the state and county paperwork of start cards, well logs and all that great stuff. I am thankful I held this position; I understand Range, Section and Townships better than most because of this job.
I am a "sharp shooter" I regularly take target practice with rifles and pistols. I generally can keep my shots within a 1 inch square. I enjoy shooting and find it to be a great release of tension.
I can do most of my own maintenance and simple repairs to my own vehicle. I have changed tires, oil, alternators, belts, hoses, lights and brakes. My first car was a 1967 Chevy Chevelle (327 - two speed power glide tranny with oversized racing cam) that was a lot of fun. At the time our town was small enough that our one officer of the law would clock us for drag racing on Saturday nights. I was the only girl and I seldom lost.
I never had a speeding ticket until I was 36 years old - I was clocked doing 83 in a 45 - I was in a hurry to see my boyfriend, now husband. Crying did not clear me of this offensive - I now use my cruise control more often than not.
My idea of exercise is playing not going to the gym. I have never had a gym membership but as the big 50 approaches I am thinking this may be a necessity. I do not eat as much as I should and gain weight constantly because I do not eat. Most people do not understand, they think large people are overeaters. I am currently reading Bob Green's Best Life Diet to get a handle on eating the amount of food I need to eat to improve my health.
