Wow, do I feel "hip" (Aidan would cringe if he saw that word!) -- I've been tagged! Tracy, of the SunnyDelights blog (Sunny Delights) tagged me two posts ago, and now I'm finally around to posting the "Seven Things You [Probably] Don't Know About Me" here, and tag seven other bloggers (do I know seven other bloggers??)
1. Even though my natural hair color is brunette now, I was a strawberry blonde the first three or four years of my life. (I look awful as a strawberry blonde now! Trust me on this.)
2. My earliest voice coaches were the Partridge Family, the Beatles and John Denver. (Okay, not literally, but they're who I sang with all the time, with my hairbrush microphone in front of the mirror.)
3. I played trombone in 7th grade beginner band. [What WAS my band director thinking??? Probably that they needed trombone players.] I switched to baritone/euphonium in 8th grade, but it wasn't much better. Not a very feminine instrument. I quit band before 10th grade and joined the choir!
4. I lived in Gallup, NM for the first year or so of my life (born in El Paso, but moved to Gallup at age 7 weeks.) I don't remember much from that era. ;-)
5. I wore a back brace for five years because I had scoliosis. All the time in 8th grade, then tapering off until just before I graduated high school (got it at the end of 7th grade).
6. I kicked a hole in my parents' bedroom door when I was about six because one of my brothers had locked himself in there with the piano and I wanted to play it. My parents punished him, not me. (Little angel that I was ...)
7. I majored in Radio, TV and Film at North Texas State University (now the University of North Texas) for a whole semester and one day. (I quit after the first day of the second semester).
So now for my victims (mwuhahahahahaha). Go check out their terrific blogs!

Okay, that's done, so off to the craft loft to do some *gasp* SCRAPBOOKING! Heaven help us!
If I can wrangle the mother's day cards I made my mom and grandmother back from them long enough to scan them, I'll post 'em in here next time.
