OLD AGE AND SWEETS FOR THE SWEET




My age has been noticed!
I very quietly confided to my friend that I was having an affair.
She turned to me and asked,'Are you having it catered'?

And that, my friend, is The definition of 'OLD'!!!!


I MADE YOU CANDY TO THINK ABOUT EATING WHILE YOU READ THIS

MEME

GO AHEAD AND TAKE 2 OR 3...THEY ARE SMALL
THIS TAG COULD GET BORING FOR YOU....
SO READ AND THINK ABOUT EATING CANDY.......

SWEET JANN over at A VINTAGE HEART
tagged me for
THE 7 THINGS TAG

***********

The Rules of the Tag Game:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
(I chose to do funny or cool, as in Number 1.)

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

******************

1. 10 years ago, I had 3 new granddaughters in 3 days .(See photo below)

2. I was making a bus trip alone when I was 9 yrs. old to see my dad and got locked in the Ladies Room of the
bus station (only a few minutes before someone heard me knocking but it seemed like 3 days)(it was NOT funny at the time but it was, later) (NOW, in this day and age, a child can NOT go alone on a bus to anywhere).

3. When I was 14, my BF and I walked into a drug store where all the kids hung out..just at the door of the store was a display of KOTEX boxes, stacked HIGH. I was looking back and ran into the stack and boxes went EVERY WHERE...talk about being MORTIFIED. and my BF just KNEW I did it on purpose !! :O(
She and I still laugh about it to this very day !

4. I once caught a HUGH black water snake on my fishing line ! Scared me so bad I dropped my rod, reel AND that snake right to the bottom of that lake.

5. At 16, my THEN boyfriend and I were standing in our living room, arms around ea other, rocking back and forth, got off-balanced and both of us fell right there in the floor. I was so EMBARRASSED I could have just died !! My dad laughed about that until the day he died.

6. When I was in high school, I took SPEECH...one day, I was in front of the class and was to say "I maneuvered myself thru the door"....it came out "I manured myself thru the door" and the class laughed so hard, it made the teacher mad and she sent ME to the office. (Ole meanie !!) .

7. I was riding on a Sea Doo with 2 friends about 6 years ago and somehow, it got over balanced and turned over, spilling us in the lake. The Sea Doo sank to the very bottom and I got so tickled, I nearly drowned myself and my friends! Now, no one wants to ever ride with ME. (?) .

*****************************
I don't mean to break any rules here but instead of passing this tag on,
I would like for ANYONE that wants to have fun with it to please do so....

HOPE YOU HAVE SUCH A GOOD DAY...

BJ,

I remember when they kept the Kotex behind the counter and you had to ask for it. If there was a guy in the store you would leave and come back later. My how the world has changed!!

Enjoy your time away,
Janet
