A fun Meme

This is Bubbie last night--ignore the 2014 date/time stamp. I had had to replace the batteries in the point&shoot and forgot to reset the time and date. Anyway, I just thought a fun picture would fit today's post...this is how he sleeps 90% of the time.

I have been tagged by Deborah over at The Cloud Messenger to do this fun meme--"Six Random Things About Me." I have been trying to decide what to tell...at first I could only think of two or three things, then last night when I settled down to finish the list, I had a hard time narrowing it down. So here are the six random things about me:

1. When I am driving I LOVE to sing, and don't much care too much if people see me and think I am strange/stupid. I cannot carry a tune in a bucket, so I only sing when I am alone. I also used to sing when I worked at the orchard and out on the machinery that was louder than my singing.

2. Almost any song that mentions Tennessee will make me cry, actually a lot of songs make me cry because I think them so beautiful, or they tell a sad story.

3. When we go fishing, or just out messing around, I sometimes pick up rocks to bring home. Not pocket sized rocks, but maybe from softball size on up, though I have not brought any real big ones home.

4. I cannot stand to mess with a turkey to bake it...the smell makes me physically sick at my stomach.

5. I love ink pens and paper...I always have a flashback to childhood when the school supplies come out each fall. I will stand and examine EVERYTHING in the pens and paper division.

6. My brother, Neal dropped me on the fireplace hearth when I was a baby. I think on my head. So that accounts for a lot;-)

Now for the rules
The rules for Six Random Facts are pretty straightforward:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they've been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Right now I am only going to tag my brother Neal at Photographic Memories....some of the ones I would have tagged have already did this. Others seem to be more or less just a photo blog, so I am not sure they would want to participate in this. Heck, Neal might not want to, but if he don't, I could probably come up pretty easily with six random things about him.

Bubbie is a sleeping acrobat! It is amazing how relaxed cats can be as they sleep. Fine shot.

Deborah Godin said...

Fun! I really enjoyed reading your 6 things. And your little LOL cat is SO CUTE! It's neat that several of us who did this are "rock people." And you'e into car-karaoke, too. Woohoo! Neat to read all this.

Bubble looks sooooo uncomfortable! But obviously he is NOT.

It was fun reading about your, Rose. Your six points make me like you even more!

Tricia said...

When the page loaded & I saw the pic of Bubbie, I thought there was 2 cats lying there! They get in the strangest positions! Incredible!!!

It was fun reading your 6 things - I like reading about people I've met blogging - It helps keep my mind off other pressing matters!!! I agree w/ EG, your 6 points make me like you even more!!! You have a good day & GOD Bless!!!

Hi Rose, I stumbled on your blog---and didn't realize that you are Neal's sister.. My hubby George and I have been enjoying all of his beautiful pictures from his travels. We have alot in common. Do you have this love of travel also??? Are you in Indiana also? How often do you get back to Cumberland Gap? I was born and raised in Big Stone Gap, just up the road!!!!

I enjoyed your "six." I'll bet you sing GREAT... IF not, just go ahead and do it anyhow...You know: Make a Joyful Noise unto the Lord!!!! ha

Carletta said...

You came up with some good ones Rose.
I sing in the car too! I used to know people looked at me but now everybody is on a cell phone and talking so I don't think about it anymore.
Your liking of pen and paper reminds me of my daughter. She could go to the dollar store and buy pen after pen - she's trying to quit. :)
In your last post Neal made a comment about coming up with facts about you - I said NO. You said you could probably come up with some if he didn't - YES, please tell us about Neal. :)

We'd be great traveling buddies if we liked the same songs! I love to sing, whatever I'm doing...if my family isn't nearby since they don't appreciate it. I always listen to music in the sewing room and sing along.

Annie said...

Honestly, cats are THE most amusing animals. Just love their antics.

maryt/theteach said...

Very funny, silly kitty you've got there, Rose! Also I love learning things about my blogger friends... :)

Rambling Round said...

Oh, I love your photos of Bubbie! He certainly has flexibility.

Interesting stuff! My half sister fell off a bed onto a concrete floor and my step father always said I dropped her but I DID NOT.

Rose said...

Well, Neal was the one told me he dropped me on my head...I didn't know about it till just a few years ago.

Abe Lincoln said...

I feel sorry for the cat and hope it gets well soon. Nice photo. Also like the books you got.

Happy New Year to you and your family from Patty and Abe.
