I have been tagged by my friends Grace and Sandy will give it a go.
* We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
* Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
* People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
* Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
Random fact #1. My father was married and divorced before he met my mother. During WW11, while in England and through that marriage had a son and a daughter. I have a half brother and sister living now in South Africa. It is only in recent years I have actually met my brother Bryan and his wonderful wife Vicky. My sister Anita, I still have not had the pleasure of meeting but am hoping.
Random fact #2. I have scandalized and embarrassed many of members of my family. For years I had a toilet bowel brush laying beside the bed. OK, it had never actually been anywhere close to a toilet. But those nylon bristles and long handle certainly made for an excellent back scratcher.
Random fact #3. I once performed live in a Toronto restaurant/bar as “a belly dancer”. A group of us serious banker types had gone to eat at a traditional Greek restaurant. Before you get ahead of me, this was not a strip club or anything like that, it was quite fancy and respectable but they did have traditional belly dancers. Dancers started on a small stage then danced their way around the room past each table. This I was not aware of prior to our arrival, although even if I had known I would have just thought BONUS. I definitely did not know that one of the dancers liked to pick out a particular man, then wrap one of her veils around his neck and drag him up on stage to dance with her. Yup, it was me and I did try to give it my best shot. I am sure many of my movements were entirely new to the art of the belly dance and I may have even set the art of the belly dance back several hundred years. My friends all assured me I had done and excellent job, but were unable to control their laughter for quite some time. Hmm.
Random fact #4. The working life of a banker is not always as quiet and boring as I am sure many think. I once had the occasion to be punched straight in the mouth. Looks can be deceiving. On the outside she appeared to be the sweetest little grandma anyone could ask for. But, do I have a story that could go with that.Random fact
#5. I am to short for my weight, I am vertically challenged.
Random fact #6. In music I don’t like jazz or rap. I really do like country and almost everything from the 60’s. Does that age me a little?
Random fact #7. I occasionally scribble down a few lines I call poetry. Not sure if anyone else would consider it that.
Random fact #8. I proposed to Vi with one of my “poems” by way of an email. There is a story that goes with that.
Man, now comes the hard part, who among all my blogging friends would I like to learn more about. The answer to that is easy, everyone. So I am tagging everyone. Here by the rules I am limited to 8 so here we go. I hope I get all this linking stuff correct.
This has I think been the hardest post I have done. I had to try and organize thoughts instead of just starting to ramble and go to what ever comes to mind. A good lesson or reality check for me on how hard it has become to concentrate to write something in an organized fashion. Grace & Sandy thank you for asking me to do this.
