My ancestors were Scots and Irish men so I have a quick temper but I do get over it quickly 3.My mom was a lot younger than my dad, they fought all the time. 4. I m an introvert and I was a pessimist until I married my hubby. 5.I love refinishing old furniture and Im good at it. 6, I like small parties where I know everyone and my hubby liked big parties where we only knew a few people 7. I am shy when I meet strangers face to face but once I get to know you Im very friendly 8. I love to write,fiction, poetry and articles on Diabetes 9. I have diabetes and I am a diabetes advocate that tries to interest people in my posts that they should get check up for diabetes each year. I try to find news on diabetes occasionally and post it too. .10. I love to make graphics and write poetry and limericks too One original graphic and post by P Hatley copyrighted 2016

I am an introvert and my husband is an extrovert. We do understand each other and respect our differences, thank goodness. A great 10 things you shared.

@Hatley Those are good ol memories, here it is for you again Miss Hatley and the younger ones who have not heard it. There are many versions and the one interpreted by Dean Martin is also good but this is my favorite version of the song, enjoy

@arthurchappell Hmm. I don't think my SIL or her ex-husband has it. I don't know about my father though.

I've seen these from you a number of times but I always learn something new about you. I didn't know you refinished old furniture. That's great. Nor did I know you were from Scots and Irish backgrounds. Seems you would be at war with yourself all the time. Glad you're not. These are always great ways to get to know one another better.

I'm neither an introvert nor an extrovert. There are many shades in between. I'm not shy, but that doesn't make me an extrovert.
