This morning I opened my email to find that Yvonne Brown tagged me for the meme. Now I've got to figure out five things to tell you.
Back in December I shared 5 facts For the MEMED of it All! So I guess I can dig a little more and come up with a few more things.
1. I love old cars! My favorite brand is Pontiacs and of that my favorite car is a 1970 Lemans Sport. In 1969 I went to the dealership with my uncle to pick up his brand new car. . .Yep, it was a 1970 Lemans. A few years later my uncle gave me that car as my graduation gift. For some reason I have always fancied these cars and use to own a few until recently. (Tough to find gas that runs those 400 motors right and I guess I'm getting too old to work on them as I use too. But I love fast!
2. I have over 1000 record albums and who knows how many 45s. Ask Bob, he can't understand why I hang onto these heavy out-dated and rarely listened to items. But I've got an original Cheech & Chong Big Bambi with the rolling paper still in the jacket. How in the world can I be expected to give up an original copy of In-a-goda-davida by Iron Butterfly or all those 45s I have with picture sleeves? (So I have 5 wooden crates in one of the bedroom closets.)
3. I use to work in a factory where we made window regulators for GM, Ford, Honda and Toyota. Yep, if you are driving a GM truck between the years of 1998 - 2000, I might have participated on the assembly line that built your window regulator.
4. I like to fish. When Bob and I married I found out that Bob didn't mind if I came along fishing. I soon learned what it was that drew so many people to participate in this hobby. I enjoyed the quiet on the lake and also the joy of reeling one in. (Hope that Bob and I can do more of that this year.)
5. I'll share what attracted me to my husband. It was his smile and openness. Bob could carry on a conversation and keep it exciting and entertaining. Not only that, but if he saw someone while we were out and about that looked down or unhappy, he would work at it until he finally got a slight smile from them. (By the way, he still does this when out and about.) I saw that and thought to myself, I want to be like that too! So I'm thankful for Bob showing me how to make life brighter.
