Tagged By Dawn!

I HAVE BEEN "tagged" by Dawn, and since I'm now "it" this is what happens:

1. Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you.

2. Post THE RULES on your blog.

3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog.

4. Tag 7 people and link to them.

5. Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.

Here are seven random facts about me:

1. I am the oldest of seven children.

2. I have an "innie" belly button.

3. I bite my fingernails and wish I could stop.

4. I am a terrible procrastinator.

5. I always expect the best from people and usually get it.

6. I adore Shakespeare's plays.

7. If I could do over one thing in my life, it would be to get more education.

I am tagging these seven lucky people:

JoAnn Christopher Ro Violette Tara Bridgette Katie

Well, I sincerely hope these people feel "lucky." They may not, since it took me a while to screw up the courage to ask seven people to give up some of their time to tag seven others. However, I did catch up with what Ro and Katie are doing. Such beautiful, wonderful, exotic doings. I love Katie's heart-shaped rock on her banner and Ro's new stamps and papers are so colorful!
JoAnn has the most beautiful tulips photos on her blog. Violette's coloring book is marvelous! I had never "met" her until I linked from Katie's blog to someone else's blog. Bridgette is new to me too. And I've seen Tara's outstanding drawings, but hadn't seen her dolls before. I feel I must, MUST, have one.
Here is a photo of something I got in the mail today from an old friend in Eastern Oregon. She lives far from town and did not have a birthday card to send so she altered the partridge on a Christmas card. She also sent the local paper from August 1965 and said, "This may seem to be an odd thing to send, but read through it carefully."
I think I finally found the article she meant for me to see, but in the meantime I went back through time - the envelope held a time machine! I found an article about a girlfriend's marriage with a photo of her new husband, an interview with my brother-in-law about his try at making the Oregon State University football team under Coach Dee Andros, a description of my brother's motorcycle accident, the admission of a friend to the local hospital years before I even met her (... I hope it was nothing serious!) and so much more. There were many articles that sounded straight out of today's newspapers.
Well, it was fun to get something in the mail that wasn't junk mail or a bill. It reminds me of my promise to write more letters. Something to do tomorrow! Adieu for now - femminismo
