A Bit of This... Some of That...

.. beginning with monday madness
The following all begin with 'In your lifetime, have you....'
1. ...ridden on a rollercoaster?
Yes... it was a totally wooden one way back in the early 1950's... before Cedar Point and even before Disney World & Disney Land. I used to love it!

2. ...performed (in any area of the arts) onstage?
Yes, when I was in grade school - 2nd or 3rd grade - I wrote the play and got to play the lead, a little boy named Johnny who wanted a pony.

3. ...planted a garden?
Yes, veggies and flowers both. Mostly lately just flowers though.

4. ...ever had to reformat your hard drive due to a virus/spyware?
No, but the husband did! I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

5. ...written a book? A poem? A song?
Doesn't blogging count? Well, yes... I have tried to write poems at one time.

6. ...sang karaoke?
Never had the opportunity, can you believe? Not that it makes me feel cheated or anything.

7. ...been interviewed by a local tv station/newspaper?
Yes, sometimes lately and once when our kids were small and I was a student at the local community college.

8. ...witnessed a tornado/earthquake/hurricane first-hand?
No... well actually we had a slight earth tremor in mid-Michigan one time... I believe i was in early 1970's or late 1960's. It only happened once and was so slight it caused no damage.

9. ...participated in a photo scavenger hunt?
Yes... every one offered by Tracy at sh1ft.com... I have versions of the latest in two websites, a gallery I created with Picasa and one at http://sherleprojects.blogspot.com.

10. ...traveled to another country?
Yes... our whole family went to Expo 67 in Montreal Canada when our baby Jan was only 4 years old & Windy the oldest was eleven. We had Carol the favorite babysitter with us too! It rained a lot and we camped in a tent at night... no fancy hotels for us, kids!

Today was another trip to our state's capital in Lansing. Will write more about it later... on TRVoice.. but for now I can say it was a very pleasant experience. It's still new to me seeing how our elected officials work for us. State Representative John Moolenaar is my hero. He has show more than once he cares about all of the people who voted for him... not just the rich ones. I dislike that we have term limits in Michigan. He is a keeper!

The other good thing was seeing one of Sharba's former high school classmates at work. She does a good job for the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. Even though I disagree with the top management and their interactions with taxpayers, Lynnelle is a sharp lady and a fine product of the Freeland School systems, just as much as my own daughters are.

I almost missed my chance to tell the committee why I support the new 'homeowners' fairness' legislation... but don't worry I got my 2 cents worth in... maybe even a bit more.

Good to hear it was a positive experience. Looking forward to hearing more. I never knew you wrote and starred in a play! =)

Love you!

Cool - 'bout the play / what's with this tagging crap? I may be a party pooper on that one
