Welcome Pioneer Woman Fans
A VNL (Very Nice Lady) named Kelly Jean, with whom I share the common bond of laughing ourselves silly over at Confessions of a Pioneer Woman, written by an unnamed lady by the name of Ree, the Pioneer Woman. She tagged me in one of them MeMe deals in which you're supposed to tell seven interesting facts about yourself, and then tag some others.
Since I only get things half right anyway, and since I can't figure out how to tell you 3-1/2 things, I guess I'll tell you seven things and skip the tag thing.
Besides, I don't have seven friends that I can remember.
Fact #1: I was asked preach once, first time ever, and it was in Haiti. Atop a mountain. Through an interpreter.
Fact #2: The first time I met my sweetheart (Peg), I turned to the man who introduced us (after she'd walked away) and said "I'm going to marry her."
Fact #3: I did.
Fact #4: I once gave Paul Newman an autograph. You'll have to ask if you want to know about that one.
Fact #5: I nearly died when I was 18 mos old (that was in 1939). 106 degree temp, mastoid infection, pneumonia. Doctor gave up and said they couldn't do anything else. Mom called a friend who was a Christian Scientist (which means that's the church she didn't go to); a reader came, was alone with me for an hour, came out at 10:30 and said to look for improvement "tomorrow". I woke up from a coma at midnight and asked for ice cream.
Fact #6: I am my own second step-cousin. Once removed, I think. Ditto the instructions for #4.
Fact #7: I once built a car. In my garage. Took a year. Prettiest car I ever saw.
