All about MeMe.

 OK, so this morning I got tagged by Linda Futral to tell you all about me.

I grew up in south Georgia in a small little town known as Waycross Ga. 

 

 

 

 

 

After many years of bouncing around, I found what I love to do back in 2002, which is the mortgage business. I have been a direct lender my entire career in the mortgage business and now as I start my trek with Home America Mortgage, we have a new twist to go along with the direct lender; we have the ability to broker what can not fit in house.

 Enough about business, more about me. I play on the softball circuit for many years. I loved it and still do, I just do not have the time to dedicate to playing at the competative level that I was. So, I have since just been a spectator, but soon will stride out on the field again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 On another note, I am a collector of sorts. I have been collecting glass for alomost 20 years now. I coolect everything from bottles to plates to bowls to dishes to little trickets. Most of the glass that I collect is antiques.

 

 

 

My favorite collections are by far crystal vases, glasses, containers, and for that matter, whatever is cystal.

And most of all, for those of you that know me, my five dogs are my life. I could not do anything without them. They are the heart and soul that keep me going.

 Now, since I have done this, I am going to in turn tag 3 people that I would like to know more about. My first with be BLR Guy because I fear that we most be related in some manner because we think to much alike. My next will be Brande Bradford as I find her to be very intriguing and my last choice is Debbie Malone as I want to learn more about her.

Awesome Danny!  Love the dog pics and hmmm the glass thing that is another collection I have going but it is just unique wine glasses or sherry glasses etc.  One of the shops on Main Street here in Hogansville has a great collection and reasonably priced.

Linda, see, you never tell a collection addict where to feed his need. I find the best places to buy are the flea markets.

Tom, love my dogs.

Gary, Waycross is a town that if you blink, you will miss it.

Rick, I am sure that you can think of 5 more things.

Danny, your dogs are adorable.  No wonder you love them so much.  The love of my life is Eddie, my Thoroughbred and Angel, my shorthair cat.

I bet your collection is wonderful.  You must have to display it above tail wagging height!  I have a few pieces from my family that have not seen the light of day in a while. I hope to have a display area sometime.  One house I toured had glass shelves built into a floor to ceiling bay window (out of direct sun) and the antique crystal and china looked spectacular!  So, is that alligator a friend of yours?SammyRiley

 

 

My dogs would love to meet your dogs -- This is our little girl Sammy and our Riley boy.

Elaine, the glass collection is all over the house. I have one giant curio that holds all the clear cystal and my entertainment center holds all the colored crystal. As far as the other glass, it is spread thought the house mostly on built in book shelves.
