Okay, 7 interesting (hopefully) things about me.
1. I absolutely cannot stand liver. My mother (a most excellent cook) used to try to disguise it. Her last attempt to get me to eat it was ground up liver mixed with beef in a meatloaf. I about threw up. After that whenever she had liver (because the rest of my family LOVED liver) she'd cook me up a hot dog.
2. In high school I won first place in an interscholastic speech arts festival in poetry for reciting, "The Stolen Child," by William Butler Yeats.
3. I've walked up the steps of the Washington Monument twice and walked down them once.
4. I've broken only one bone, a small one in my right wrist, due to a roller skating accident.
5. I may have grown up on the ocean but I know next to nothing about sailing. I'm all about being a passenger.
6. I may have grown up on the ocean but I never learned to scuba dive. I'm all about snorkeling and free diving. In my prime I could easy dive 25 to 30 feet and tool around for a minute to a minute and a half before making my leisurely way to the surface.
7. In 1970 I went with my senior class to Curacao and Caracas, Venezuela. While in Caracas there were student riots right down the street from the hotel we were staying in. We were able to watch it. Police and military guarded the hotel, outside and in, with machine guns and rifles. It was tense and exciting at the same time.
YEAH! I'm a winner!
I have been randomly picked by Melissa Wray of Uncommon YA to win a copy of the book of my choice! I went with The Pitcher by William Elliott Hazelgrove.
Thank you Uncommon YA for having such a great give-away.
