10 Things About Me (no secrets here...)
March 11, 2016 7:25am CST
~ I was born on Labor Day, an appropriate day for my mother to go into labor... She was at the beauty parlor because she and dad were going out to dinner that night when her water broke. She had me instead... ~ I loved to go to feed the monkeys at Savin Rock, an Amusement Park in West Haven, Connecticut, where my grandmother lived. My Aunt and I could walk there and back in the 1950's. ~ My Aunt who lived with my grandmother in Conn. was my best buddy. She played board games with me. I was a teen before I realized she was brain damaged because of scarlet fever as a child. I grew up and she never did... But I loved her forever. ~ I took piano lessons as a child and hated every minute of it. My mother played the piano. My little sister took lessons and got really good at it. I quit. ~ I was a “tom boy”. I loved being outside, I climbed trees, I hiked our woods on my own, I had two horses as a preteen and teen, I was good at all sports. ~ I was hired by a department store to dress up in a colonial hooped skirt dress and pass out the store brand of candy to the shoppers on the weekends. ~ Painting, drawing, sketching, sculpture, photography, flower arranging, anything creative came easily to me. I now paint. I have a home based business. ~ I was propositioned by the Dean of Men at the Christian University I went to in the midwest. More than once. I went to the Dean of Women and told her and nothing was done about it. It turned me right off of Religion. ~ I married a man I met at that University, when we had children I gave religion another chance for our kids. ~ We moved to Canada in the 1980's and love having duel citizenship. I camp every summer with my sister in the Adirondacks. My children grew up here. We love being in Canada , except maybe during winter. The photo is mine not related to this post, taken at at horse race last summer.

I was a tomboy too when I was a kid. I didn't take piano lessons until adulthood, and I haven't practiced for years, so I'm not very good at it. I really wish I had kept up with it, because I love music. I'm also creative, and really like painting and woodcarving.

@rebelann we moved our kids almost every year until we moved to Canada, It was work related too but my kids were used to it and it didn't seem to make any difference to them. Every move was an adventure. It helped that most of the places we lived were in Kansas so old friends were just a car ride away for sleepovers, picnic's and birthdays.

Today I don't think he would get away with it. He had a harem of women. You never saw him without some bimbo on his arm. I wanted to tell his wife but never did. I wasn't around to see him get kicked off the campus but I can always hope.
