Premio MeMe Award


BEAUTIFUL FLOWER TREASURE HUNT


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

  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!!

    Nancy
