I've been MeMe'd ~ Thanks Greg!

Real Estate Agent with Melissa Schnieders Photography

I've been meme'd by Greg Fox - a fellow Wichitan and well, gosh, thanks!  Here goes...

1. Who is your favorite Musical Artist?  Um, of all time, Rich Mullins. But, I really enjoy anything that's 'danceable' - (yes, I'm known for making up words too LOL).  So, I listen to a lot of Hip Hop music.

2. Who is your favorite Artist?   I tend to be drawn to Black & White photography and my favorites are Ansel Adams , Margaret Bourke-White and Dorothea Lange.   I also am intrigued by the Sistine Chapel (someday I'll see it in person) and my youngest son's name is Cole Thomas - as a nod to the famous Thomas Cole.

3. Who is your favorite Blogger?  Oh Wow! I can't just choose 1 AR blogger. So, I'll introduce you to 2 of my favorite non-rainers:  Big W and Matt

4. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead) who would it be and what is the most interesting thing about them?  Well, I am not really into knowing or wanting to know famous people.  I would give just about anything to have my Texas Grandparents alive one more day.  I'd love to have my Grandpa give me some more photography tips and I'd love to watch one of his infamous slide shows.

5. What did you want to be when you grew up?  A mom of 6.  In 4th grade, our teacher wanted us to make Career Day posters.  I picked a teacher (I know, unique, huh?!).  Anyway, she said I couldn't pick that because someone else already had!  She wanted a wider variety of potential careers so that our parents could ooh and aah at the posters on PTA night. I suggested a Mom but she said "A Mom isn't a career choice". Little did SHE know!  So, I ended up picking a cop, because no one else did. 

6. What is the most interesting piece of Trivia you know? I am full of useless tidbits of info which makes for fun times while watching Jeopardy!

7. If you could live in any period in History...when would it be and why?  1940's or 1950's but only if it's really like it was on Leave It To Beaver.  Actually, I would like a time machine to jet all around and visit different times because I'm fascinated by so many different eras.

8. What is the most interesting job you have ever had?  Every job I've ever had was interesting! But, by far, working with my Aunt Jennifer in my Ohio Grandparents pool store in the late 1970's was interesting because we got to run the tests on the pool water to see what chemicals it needed.  This was before the little insta-test kits like we have now and for an 8 year old, it was fun running that machine.  I once got a job as a grocery store clerk just because I wanted to run the cash register and scanner - I thought I could do it better/faster than their employees. It was fun... for a while. Then it just got to be a J-O-B so I quit. 


TAG - You are IT!  I'm meme'ing the following people: Karen Cheek, Sheree Wilkerson, Jennifer AllanCarole Provenzale,  Rich Kruse, Karen George, and Melissa Marro

Melissa, I love finding out more information about everyone on Activerain, we are all so unique.  Hey, you certainly grew up to be exactly what you wanted to be, a MOM and a TEACHER.  It would be impossible to be a mom without being a teacher as well!  Nice meme, I enjoyed it...and thank you (?) for tagging me but I was already meme'd!

Great Meme. Being a mother is by far the best job in the world. (Okay! I am a man and not a mother but where would we be if God didn't bless us with great mothers?) Have a great weekend.

So you'd like to live back in the days of Leave It To Beaver?  Whoa!  I wonder how commissions were back then in relation to today...........
