Blog Tag....I'm it!

Blog Tag ... I'm It!

Dear Mary Ann from Handcrafted by Mary Ann tagged me this week, AND....

Shari from Rain into Rainbows tagged me a while back...and 
Marilyn from 4 You with Love tagged me earlier this month too.

Bless their sweet hearts!  I'm honored to be chosen, but haven't kept up 'my end' of the game very well. =(

I am pleased I kept record of the tags, but shamefully admit I just haven't stopped long enough to 'play the game' and pass them on.


I truly loved reading everyone's answers.

I'm DEFINITELY a People Person and love knowing details!

Because I've got several lists of questions and answers, I'm just going to mix them up a little so I can get this posted.  I hope that 'works' for all involved.

Here are the latest "Revised Rules" of the game...

1. Post a photo and eleven things about yourself in a blog post.

2. Answer the questions the person who tagged you, asked.

3. Create eleven new questions for the people you tag.

4. Contact them and let them know they have been tagged.

This photo was taken of the Love of my Life and me on our recent 44th anniversary.
