Hi ActiveRainers,

I got Memed about a month ago by Gerhard Ade! I always enjoy his posts so I wanted to make sure I did this post justice.  Basically Gerhard said that we should write about five things that people don't know about us.  I've actually put a lot of information in my profile on who I am so I thought I would be out of ideas for this post. 

However, I thought long and hard and here are a few things you didn't know about me:

1.  I like to Scuba Dive and I always wanted to Scuba Dive the Great Barrier Reef before I hit 40!! I made it,  about three years ago. I ended up marrying an Ausie and he took me to an island off of the coast of Australia that is just gorgeous called Hayman Island  which is located in the Barrier ReefFrom there we took a chartered boat to a section of the reef called the Three Sisters.  It was absolutely amazing, like no other reefs I've ever seen. 

2.  My goal for retirement is to live in Hilton Head and be a golf  starter!!   So what is a golf starter?  Those are the guys that take your golf receipt when you tee off and then drive around the golf course making sure everyone's playing on schedule and following the rules!! How fun is that!!  I told one of my clients that and they said "No wonder your in Real Estate".  You've got to love people and love talking if you're going to do THAT!  Who knows, maybe I'd keep my real estate gig on the side!!

3.  I went to college in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at Louisiana State University.  I'm sure I have at least 100 things that I could tell you about my experience there!  What a fun place to spend four years at college.  I had clients in town yesterday from California and we talked about the sprit at LSU.  I told them that I still remember the LSU Fight Song and even sent them the youtube video to prove it.  I'm still trying to figure out how to embed the video so here's the  This video looks like when I went there, maybe before.  Who knows.  

4.  My pride and joy is my daughter Jordan.  She is driving now(YIKES) and will be 16 in June!! It's really hard to believe.  Jordan was born in Houston, Texas in 1991 and we moved to North Carolina three weeks later.  Jordan has lived in North Carolina her whole life.  She plays soccer, tennis, and did a stint as a cheerleader also.  She's winding up her sophmore year at Cary Academy and looking forward to her junior year abroad.  Jordan has taken five years of French and her school let's the kids that have taken a foreign language since 6th grade go

 abroad for three weeks their Junior year. 

5.  I was born in Charleston, West Viriginia and lived there during the summer for 16 years.  My father was the head Tennis Pro at the Charleston Tennis Club(CTC) up on the hill and we lived in Texas in the winters.  My father is a PHD in Psychology and writes books published in over 80 countries now.  At the time he was a professor and we would go back and forth from Texas to West Virginia in the summers.  That's how my family got so involved in Tennis. 

I hope you enjoyed this MEME.  I certainly enjoyed writing it..

Very interesting.  You've certainly reinvented the word "Travel".  You're all over the board.  I hope you enjoy North Carolina.  It's a great place to live.

Thanks for letting us get to know you a little better. My husband went to school at UNC, misses North Carolina dearly. We always say we will retire there, but we have a ways to go before that happens!

and by the way... WAR EAGLE!

Oh, Tracy.  My lifelong dream is to visit Australia.  We have relatives in Hawaii and for some reason I don't care to visit there.  I think it's because it seems commercialized to me, whereas Australia calls to my wilderness side.  My only problem is snakes.  I don't do snakes well but I'm still drawn to the bush.  

So you want to be a golf Nazi when you retire!  I've only been on an "adult" course one time in my life.  It was by invitation from the mortgage company who rented the whole course for the whole day.  I'd played maybe 3 times in my life and this was my fourth.  The golf Nazi assigned to our area was so nasty that the experienced golfer from our foursome, who played that course regularly, actually took our cart back to the clubhouse and filed a formal complaint.  She was beyond furious.  Since the whole course was rented by the mortgage company and everyone started at a different hole, she didn't get why it was an issue how fast we played.  We were enjoying ourselves until that point.  We allowed anyone behind us to play through, but the golf Nazi kept harassing us to speed up.  Since we were playing best ball the experienced golfer who was the complainant was the one we were keeping up with.  I decided I probably would not return to any tournament quality courses again.  I occasionally play "muni" courses but the 18 hole courses bring up those bad memories.

So, Australia would be perfect for you Bonnie. It's so laid back, the people are wonderful, and they have SO much land.  A lot of people don't realize that Australia is as large as the US!! 

I'm sorry you had such a bad experience w/a golf starter.  It sounds like that guy needed an attitude and career adjustment.

Sooo much land is what attracts me.  That and kangaroos and the Aussie accent and their wild history.  A prison colony of all things!  The people would have to be nice but resilient. 

Oh, well, about the golf.  I never will get the joy of chasing a ball around a groomed park.  I'd rather do something a little faster moving myself!

Hi Tracy,

I enjoyed reading about your adventures. I am so scared of scuba diving. Snorkeling is as far down as I want to go.

Your daughter is lovely!

Hi Tracey - it was exciting to see that you went to LSU and that you loved it!  I'm an LSU grad myself.  Graduated in 2003.  I was raised in Baton Rouge and I still get excited, and I guess always will, every time I hear the Fight Song. Go LSU!!!

Hi Lauren,

Send me a PM and I'll explain how to link back to your profile.  Just an FYI - Most AR's don't want links in their posts because it takes away from the post.  I can explain.  Either call me or send me a PM.

Geaux Tigers!
