Versatile = Handy or Adaptable Award
Texan was kind enough to recognize my eccentricity and give me a versatile blogger award. Thanks lady, I enjoy reading your blog and one day hope to become the handy gardener that you have become. I also love reading about your adventures and loving relationship. In marriage, each party has to be adaptable or else the marriage will not last.
Before I comply with the 'rules' of this award; I trotted off over to Feral Female's blog just to see what Texan was yakking about. Right away, I joined as a follower -- love the pithy commentary and will be waiting with baited chicken breath to read more from your archives. The high on the 'haybale photo' cracked me up and reminded me of kid Pices taking a shot at hubby on the day kid Opposum was born. Way too funny for cha cha, so many goats and such preditable behavior. LOL
On to the OFFICIAL STUFF and Proceedings.
Things about myself no one knows (or if they did I dumped their bodies already.)
I love giving speeches, acting, being a emcee, teaching a classroom, and once served as instructor on Iraklion Air Station; Crete, Greece as installation CPR, Self Aid and Buddy Care, and Basic Life Savings skills instructor.
I have gotten in a fight with a drunk sailor and WON in the Philippines. He started assaulting one of my female friends and pulling on her clothing -- middle of the street mind you. Well, I jumped him after he put his hands on her -- in a horrible manner -- she was screaming NO -- passerbys just kept walking. We (with me on his back) fell through a plate glass window as I was punching him; he wound up on Admin / International Hold for assaulting my friend. NUFF SAID Personally, I think I have seen Norma Rae one too many times. LOL
I once got on stage to dance like the Philippino bar girls however, I kept my clothes on. I have also went with a herd of Marines to the Nipa Hut. If you want to know -- just Google it. LOL Not for the PG crowd, and yes it was quiet gross but; I learned stuff about human nature. MIND YOU, I now empathize with 'randy goats.'
I stop for folks on the side of the road in case they need help. (Drives my husband nuts, and he usually drives because of this.)
I can tolerate all music except for Korean Opera -- brings up horrible memories of being a teenager at my first job with a tyrannical boss; who's short statue place his eyes right on my SHE BAGS. A very self-conscience time I think in a blooming female's life.
I have pledged to be a perpetual student and so far, I have accumulated over 200 semester hours just to keep my honor. I don't understand the need for television on; in place of reading a great book. My theory is, if you are not learning then it's fluff. While fluff is good for pillows, it is not for the brain. Keep stuffing that sponge (brain) full because you never know when; you will need useless facts to kick serious hiney at Trival Pursuit.
At age 16, I found myself in the foster care program. The family I stayed with in central Los Angelos was a wonderful Mexican family. Decades later, I am happily married to a Hispanic; love the tight knit family culture.
My Nomination and why?
My nominee is Kelley. This woman works her A. DOUBLE S off trying to rescue kittens in her neighborhood. I have learned so much about kitten biology just from reading her life adentures. Personally, if folks would take the time to spay or neuter pets then the world would not be such a dramatic place for feral animals. It breaks my heart, her family is scarificing so much to clean up a problem which is in fact, a national issue.
Now I am off to do some chores. We are super stoked to have our daughter visiting from San Antonio. WOOO HOOO, Doncha love family?
