Premio MeMe Award


I wanted to thank Jessie for awarding me Premio MeMe Award.

The rules associated with this award are that I am to write seven little-known facts about myself, and then pass this award to seven of my fellow bloggers.

1. Taking up on something Jessie said, I love the reality stuff...not that I am proud of it but it is a kick. I love Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, The Bachelorette, and Big Brother. I don't know what I find fascinating about these....perhaps the interaction of people and how they think....the human nature aspect.

2. I collect cats, boxes, and miniatures of most anything. It is probably why I fell in love with ACEOs.

3. I danced a 12 hour marathon with my boyfriend when I was a teenager and took first place. At the time I lived in a two story house in Paris. The next morning my legs collapse on the first step coming down and slid all the way to the bottom on my kiester. LOL

4. I shook hands with President Kennedy when he came to Paris. That may have been why his death affected me so much.....but I grew up to be a Republican...LOL

5. Another love I have is looking at houses. I probably should have sold houses for a living. If there is an open house somewhere I will probably be there. :)

6. I spent two entire summers in Alaska. I loved every minute of it.

7. I danced on television when I was nine years old in Oklahoma City. I followed Zippo the Chimp. Remember him, anyone??? What an act to follow. :)

There you have it. Now for my seven choices:

1. A World of Moments-Mel

2. Pics and Poems-Dave

3. Every Photo Tells a Story

4. Allie Art Photography

5. Diane Clancy's Art Blog

6. Christy DeKoning

7. Under the Lindens


  1. Boy you have led an interesting life Carole

  2. Do you think so, Marlene? LOL ***blushing.

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

    Thank you very much for thinking of me! I don't think my seven facts will be quite as interesting! :), allie

  5. What fantastic facts to share! I especially loved the story about the dancing and your house in Paris... wow, you must have so many more stories from that time! How exciting.

  6. Thanks, Allie. :)

  7. Hello Carole:

    Congrats on the award, and thank you for passing it on to me. You are so kind! Even if you are a Republican:)

    P.S. I'm on a "visiting" hiatus until I'm packed, moved, and settled in to my new home, but I will "see" you at that time. And, I'll be sure to catch up on all your wonderful poetry that you've shared on your blog.

    Keep living that fascinating life, which I can tell you are!!
