So, what about MEME!

By
Real Estate Agent with Results Realty

I received a MEME from Mary Warren a couple weeks back and really tried to put thiRonnie Bankss out of my mind!  Well, I didn't really know what a MEME was--I called my friend, Marchel and asked her, "What the heck is a MEME?"  Well, I was not going to do that!  I only really tell my close friends about me and there is nothing very interesting anyway!  Ok, I see I was being stubborn!  You asked for it Mary...

#1. I was born in Kansas City, Mo (photo at left of-MEME at 1 yr old) and the youngest of three children.  My brother, Ronnie (at right)was the oldest, but I was actually the closest with him.  He went to Vietnam, came home and was killed in a truck wreck the following year. We never found out who ran him off the road.  My sister, Sherry, died in 1989.  I believe due to these happenings, I treasure my family and friends.  My friends are my family.

#2. I have been married for 25 years to a great guy named Jeff.  He is a  Safety and Environmental Manager and is over the safety of  several plants all across the country and Canada. I couldn't ask for a better husband.  I have two sons, Ryan and Rick.  Ryan-32, is so kind-- we have a special bond as for a time before I met Jeff it was just the two of us. I won't talk about the divorce! lol  Ryan got married last September to a lady named Sara with whom he had went with for eight years. He is a sports fanatic! He was in the army and was discharged just before 9-11. He works at The Men's Wearhouse corporate office as a supervisor. My youngest son, Rick-21 and (6'4") is a Senior in College. He is so intelligent and gifted that he amazes me more with each passing day.  He truly takes care of Mom--My car, computer, stereo, my gun, my house!  Whatever is broken he can fix or build it.  He comes home most weekends as his "stuff is here"(I like to think he comes home to see ME!l)  I am so proud of them both, they are my inspiration and the meaning of my being. I love them dearly! When it  is all said and done, I have done something right!!  (gee, that even makes me gag) All true though!  Photo-Rick is on the left and Ryan on the right at his wedding.

#3.  I was raised on a 600 acre ranch in Missouri.  We had many head of cattle and My BarkleyI had horses and rode competitively.  Barrel racing, pole bending and pleasure mostly. Needless to say, I love animals!  I have a persian cat, Barkley and an African Grey parrot, Rosey. When I was young we had a pet monkey. During the summer he stayed outside (remember we had 600 acres) if he wanted to.  His name was Spooky and was a happy little guy. 

#4.  I love Real Estate and guess it is in my blood.  My grandmother was a Realtor in Bonner Springs, Ks. for many years and my parents had numerous real estate holdings. Two good friends got in to Real Estate along with me here in Houston 14 years ago. My sister-in-law Jacki, is a Realtor in Houston as well. Due to Real Estate I have made some very good friends-not just acquaintances! 

#5.  Not many people know I was a Private Investigator before I got into Real EstaRoseyte-was interesting. I worked in the accounting department of an oil company, and years ago worked at a newspaper.  I believe I came away with so much from each career move. 

 

I am calling on Shellee Ashmore and Bridget Armstrong

 

My phototographer (Shellee Ashmore) did a wonderful job with Barkley & Rosey. She is quite remarkable with the camera.

Wow...has anyone told you that you have this little smidgen of a similiarity to Laverne from Lavern and Shirley?  Not a look-a-like at all...but there is something in your porfile pic that looks a bit like her. You are gorgeous though compared to her!

All the best,

Beth

Beth -  I have not been told I resemble Laverne, but I will take that as a compliment!  lol   Must be that large initial I wear. (just kidding)  Used to be one of my favorite shows as a kid.  Thanks for the nice comment!

Hi Candy,
Good to hear Rick is doing well with his leg.  I think I told you before about my brother's bad break (leg).  He had a limp for awhile but does not anymore.  Physical therapy is hard work, good for him for sticking with it--it makes all the difference.

Cynthia - That is great news about your brothers recovery.  Rick is doing the physical therapy his surgeon told him to do and he said Rick's movement is pretty good and he may not need the actual physical therapy other than what he is doing.  He is in college and the campus and surroundings are very hilly, so the Dr. said that is very good as well.  (wasn't so good while on crutches however) lol   Now I am a little concerned though.

Candy,

That's certainly a diverse resume you have there.  Barkley looks a lot like my black persian Cisco.  He's beautiful!!

I think you did a wonderful job and Mary also got me! Hmmm, I starting the think Mary has it in for me and you. It is harder than you think to do one of these and I'm glad to see you did. Private investigator? Wow! I had a friend who did that as well as Repo cars. I went with him 1 count them 1 night! That was enough for me, then the next night he got shot at. Glad I decided it wasn't the life for me.

Todd - I thought Mary just had it in for me! lol  I am glad she is sharing the fun.  I believe she has been tagged so many times, she has to make the rounds!  lol  I really dreaded doing this, but, after I got started it wasn't so bad. 

I love to hear about other people's families and lives however!  Thanks for the nice comment.

Cathy,

I forgot to tell you that I used to have a horse as well.  I showed him for pleasure (lead mostly).  I also did some barrel racing, and my favorite which was Monkey in the Tree!
