I have been tagged by my good friend Vijaya. This exercise is probably a good distraction for me, so here goes.
1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read the player's blog.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you've posted your answer.
What were you doing five years ago?
I had just left my job of 23 years. It was jumping off a cliff because I didn’t know what I was going to do. But then I applied for and got accepted to take the ICL course and that cliff turned into a long a wonderful hand-gliding experience.
What are five things on your to-do list for today (not in any particular order)?
Continue to get ready for the BIG 2 day week-end Market Days where I sell my tatting. Do some writing. Cook up something for lunch/dinner. Make the bed. Take a nap.
What are five snacks you enjoy?
Nuts and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Fruit salad. Gosh…I can’t think of anything else that I really enjoy snacking on.
What five things would you do if you were a billionaire?
Make sure my family was comfortably taken care of. Go to work for Vijaya in her publishing business. Travel more. Be generous in giving. Buy all the books I could ever want.
What are five of your bad habits?
Smoking. And that’s it, which is bad enough. Though I only smoke 5 or 6 cigarettes a day. It’s really my only vice.
What are five places where you have lived?
U. S. Virgin Islands, Clear Lake and Pedro Point (now Pacifica) CA, Gainesville FL, Washington PA, Texas.
What are five jobs you've had?
Ward clerk at a hospital. Ceramicist (? I guess that’s what you’d call it; I helped glaze and fire pottery.) Owner/operated of a gift shop called The Kit and Kaboodle. Singer in a jazz trio called Triad. And 23 years at a home for abused and neglected kids where I did so many different jobs it would fill a page.
Five people I’m tagging with the hopes they will forgive me.
