I’ve been tagged by Claudie…I supposed to share 6 things about me that you might not know. I did one of these early on in my blogging days; let’s see if I can think of anything new….Hmmmm.
~~I cry easily. I just watched Pollyanna on TCM and cried my eyes out. A well-done commercial can send me off, too. I’m sentimental, what can I say?
~~I became sick right after I was born and turned blue. My Mother had to come home from the hospital without me and I was allowed to come home on Thanksgiving. For many years after that my Dad always said “Thank you for Claudia” during the blessing.
~~I love Fred Astaire. I have read most everything about him, and have seen all his movies many, many times.
~~My favorite novel and movie – ever – is To Kill a Mockingbird.(Do you see a connection to the name of my home?) The novel is brilliant, the movie is the best adaptation of a novel I’ve ever seen. I got to see Gregory Peck live a few years back when he was doing his one man show (because my dear husband bought me a ticket as a gift). As the theme music to the movie played during the introduction, I started crying. Mr. Peck was delightful – a real Irish storyteller.
~~I love animals – all animals, and I’m a vegetarian. At times I am vegan.
~~I can burp on cue. I used to do it to annoy my brother when we were kids. I kept on doing it until he told me one day that it would give me an ulcer. I was younger and I believed him.
I also received an award from Lynn. Thank you, Lynn! I’m supposed to list 5 things that I don’t like. Here goes:
~~ when people talk loudly on cell phones in public – as if they are in private
~~ when people forget to turn off their cell phones at the theater or, unbelievably, text during the show
~~ cruelty of any kind – to people, animals or the earth
There you have it – I am supposed to pass these on, but to tell you the truth, I feel a bit uncomfortable doing that. If you, my readers, would like to take part, please do! Feel free to take the award, and tell us what you don’t like – or take the tag and tell us things about yourself we don’t know.
Tomorrow I will post more photos from the Barn Sale! And that will be my 225th post, so the next day I will post about the giveaway!
