Rena and Adrienne have put out a Seven Facts meme in which I am to list (guess) seven things about myself that you probably don’t know. And then…if you read this post I’m supposed to pass the meme on to you. Aren’t you glad you stopped by?
So here are seven things you probably don’t know about me.
1.) We once had a fruit bat as a pet.
2.) When I went to Caracas, Venezuela with my senior high school class in 1970 we were locked up in our hotel room for one whole day because university students were rioting just a few blocks away. We could see it from one of the rooms. There were police and military standing guard at the hotel carrying machine guns. And what were the students rioting for? They were protesting the U. S. and Nixon’s bombing of Cambodia.
3.) I absolutely loathe liver. Can’t stand the smell, taste or texture.
4.) Scott McKenzie was at my 19th birthday party and his present was to sing a song to me up close and personal. He sang “Celeste,” a song by Donovan.
5.) When I was eight I shook hands with Laurence Rockefeller.
6.) In my early 20’s I worked at Shands Teaching Hospital in Gainesville, Florida as a ward clerk. One of the doctors who frequented the floor I worked on was Dr. Cade, the inventor of Gatorade. He was a wonderful man.
7.) I had to do research to find out what the heck a meme is. I’m still not sure how to pronounce it…mee-mee or meem. Maybe someone will enlighten me. :O
