Here are some things you might not know about me:
My husband and I judged a parade in Nome, Alaska. On the longest day of the year they must have some fun, so they put on a midnight parade with floats and bands. We were staying there on a vacation, so they thought we should choose the winner, since we probably would not be biased
I won a speech contest in Junior college
I once did a radio show with my classmates on a local station. It was about a cottontail rabbit that ran away from home. It was written in our classroom.
I was on the honor role only once in highschool. That was a proud moment, since I usually scraped by with mostly Bs and Cs. I think I studied pretty hard though.
I once had a job in selling newspaper subscriptions over the phone. I don’t think it had the stigma that it does now. I hate being bothered over the phone to buy anything.
I was the only one of my family that graduated from college.
My first teaching job was in a two room schoolhouse. It was challenging being in charge of four grades, kindergarten through third.
I designed a dollhouse and with my husbands help obtained a patent for it. It turned out to be the most expensive dollhouse in history. We still have one of the only three ever built. My granddaughter has a great time playing with it and that in itself is priceless.
I was in a highschool production of Arsenic and Old Lace. I played the older sister. I love the film version with Cary Grant.
I have dreams of cooking. I created a special harvest soup in one dream and cooked it the next day. Someday I’ll share the recipe. It was actually good.
I once took my mother to a Michael Bolten concert. She loved it.
I sing alto when I’m in church. Sometime I try the bass part, but no one can hear me anyway if I make a mistake.
Someday I spend the whole day without putting on make-up.
I don’t play bridge–though I did try playing one time and could never get the hang of it.
I have walked on the Great Wall in China.
I like to read and write poetry.
Never played golf—does miniature count?
I used to paint pictures, but don’t anymore.
Riding a bicycle is scary for me.
I’m afraid of heights. I actually got light-headed on a ferris wheel.
I enjoy quilting. I once made a quilt entirely out of ties.
My favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird.
