I'm A Winner!

I'm a two time winner! I'm speechless! First I won the Simply Me blog giveaway, at BTW, you might want to check out that blog. My prize is a Pamper Yourself Kit worth $20; I'll be watching the mail box--can't wait to start pampering!

Second, I received an award from Kat Harris of the Long Road to Heaven, at . The rule is that the recipient must find a new blog to read; follow it for a week; tell the writer what you're doing and why, and then list seven things about yourself that people might find interesting.

Boy, I had a tough time coming up with interesting things about me! Here goes:

1. I have owned 2 Newfoundland dogs in my life; one named Charles Barkley and one named Zeus.

2. During my first year of teaching, I coached girls basketball, girls softball, and drama. (I had never played basketball or softball)

3. I have been married 38 years; 12 to my first husband and 26 next month to my current husband.

4. I didn't learn to speak English until I was 6 years old; up to that time I spoke only French.

5. I once lived in a tent for 6 weeks with my husband and a 6 month old baby.

6. I worked on summer as a carhop at an A & W Rootbeer Drive In Restaurant
(No, I didn't have to rollerskate!)

7. I got "carded" going into a bar at age 36 and promptly planted a big "thank you" kiss on the Bouncer's lips!

Now I have to find a new blog to follow!

as a PS: I found the blog I'm going to follow:

There seems to be a possibility that he is my long lost son!

The only way I pamper myself with 20 dollars is to rub it all over my face and giggle a lot. That's good enough for me.

1) Yer a dog lover. You can do NO wrong in my book now.
2) You worked in an A&W stand. I still have two original mugs I keep in my freezer for rootbeer ONLY. When I'm feeling crazy, I dump in a scoop of vanilla and ask that everybody leave me alone and let me have my moment of zen.
3) Here's your new best kept blogging secret. Yer gonna love my buddy Brendon.

Not long ago I was talking about A&W Rootbeer and how I'd not seen one in a long while in Ohio -- I see them in Vancouver all the time.

Within a week I received A & W coupons in the mail. It seems there's one within six miles or so from me.

Thanks for picking me! Although, sadly, I haven't updated that blog since April - at least you'll have a nice easy week of following...
