TAG...I'm it!

TAG RULES.
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about you.

Mmmm. 7 weird or random facts about me.

  1. My driver's license says JulieT. Not that I am named Juliet, just Julie. My maiden name begins with a T.
  2. I met my husband after a rowdy ride on a motorcycle with 2 other people (riding on the same bike) and I was well, sort of arrested. He was at the police station with his best friend, a cop.
  3. My husband and I both have 4 brothers and 1 sister, giving my children 20, count it 20 aunts and uncles!
  4. I won Miss Mansfield, twice. Miss Burleson & Miss Keller, once, and was runner up to various other pageants. I think my mother truly wanted a Miss America, but alas, all she got a Mrs. Henderson!
  5. I only like to watch movies that have a happy ending, real life is sad enough. Titanic was so disappointing to me, my kids said, come on Mom, surely you knew it would sink. I can hope, can't I?
  6. I like to do genealogy research, I can trace my paternal grandmother all the way back to the 13th century. I am related to Edgar Allen Poe & Ulysses S. Grant. I think that might explain alot.
  7. I have no memories of my life before the age of 12, except those that have been told to me in the past few years. And that is a story for another day.

I would love to hear some random, crazy stuff about you too, drop me a note and let me in on your secrets.

I Love to do Geneology research too! I've gone back to the 1300s so far. Not bad! It is so neat that you can access documents all on the internet. I have a subscription to use ancestry.com. I LOVE it! Do you use geneology.com or ancestry.com? Take care, Cara

It is fun finding out crazy facts. Like I found out that one of my relatives was a quaker and he was kicked out of the church for 'keeping and playing a fiddle'. My dad was really into it as well, I wish he would have lived long enough to get to play on the internet, but he died before it was accessible. I use those sites, plus geneanet, gencircles and rootsweb. I have enjoyed keeping up with you on your blog. Merry Christmas, Julie
