I've Been Tagged...

Ernest Hemingway was bet $10. that he couldn't sum up his life in six words. He won that bet when he wrote, "For sale, baby shoes, never worn." You can go to Bookbabie's blog and read about the book that was inspired by his quote and how it influenced her to start this meme.

Blondie/Vintage Primitives tagged me to use 6 words to sum up my life.

So I think mine would be have to be
"Keep on the sunnyside of life."


Now the rules are:
1. Write your own six word memoir
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like
3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible, so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere
4. Tag five more blogs with links
5.Remember to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!



Next, I was tagged by Jean/Bluejean Primitives to tell y'all 5 weird things about myself. Are ya sittin' down? Here goes...


1. In 5th grade I played the lead role of Paul Bunyan in our class play. (And I'm still swingin' an axe)


2. I loved to eat chocolate icecream with crunched up potato chips on top of it. If it didn't make me sicker than a dog now, I would still eat it.


3. I am afraid of grasshoppers. Yep, its true. I had one land on me once and I'm pretty sure my heart stopped beatin' for a few seconds.


4. As a wee one, I made daddy peel all my grapes before I would eat them. (Y'all heard it right) They were "too hard" for me to bite into them.


5.Again as a wee one, I had an invisible friend named Barney. I'm not talkin' about Barney the Purple Dinosaur either. He was cool like Barney from the Flintstones. Mama used to have to set a place settin' for him at the dinner table too.



That's me on the right...
