He likes ONLY Ranch Dressing on a salad...

The only food he REALLY doesn't like is Sweet Potatoes with Marshmellows..

He went to school in PAMPA, TEXAS

The only thing he might order in a bar would be a BEER..

He wears a size 10 1/2 shoe or boot..

He collects coins and guns...

He likes BLT'S...

He would eat FISH every day...

Oatmeal is his fav. cereal

He would NEVER, EVER wear those shorts that are OFF THE HIP, crotch halfway down the calves and comes almost to the ankle....ewwwww

DALLAS COWBOYS are his fav. sports team...

He will vote McCain

His best friends are his kids and me..

I probably have too many "collections" for his taste...

He's lived in Texas and Colorado

His heritage is Black Dutch...

He played FOOTBALL in high school...

He can spend hours playing GOLF...loves it!!

love, bj

QUESTION...

everyone's blog is so neat and cool looking and MINE has skipped places between sentences, sprawled out all over the place and...I don't know how to correct that. There's double spacing where I don't want it.

Could anyone help me with this? I do appreciate it!

I loved finding out all these things about you! You are such a wonderful lady ..... I wish I could give you a big hug... in person!!

((hugs)) Rosie

Beverly said...

Great job, BJ. I love you, girl.

Have a wonderful day.

Brown-Eyes said...

Hi Dear BJ...I think you and I are definitely related after reading your lists...and your sweet hubby and mine could be brothers with their likes (except for golf-mine has never played)..and one more thing...My dad was born in Pampa, Tx.!!! Also, I've having the same problem with spacing, font size, etc. it's as if Mr. Blogger is having fun at my expense! Hugs, Bo

Smilingsal said...

I love Mexican food too.

And, our husbands should get together and play golf. Mine plays every Wednesday.

Jan and Tom's Place said...

WOW...BJ...didn't know these things about you!!!

Thanks for the visit today and comments about my bathroom re-do and the chandy. The chandelier only set me back $6...that's right...$6. I bought it when we moved in, had Tom put it up and it stayed in the corner of the Bath, til this re-do. I had him move it, centered over the whirlpool, and added crystals to it...brought the price up to $18!!!

~Blessings,
Jan

Your Bill sounds like me! I'm glad he is a Cowboy's fan...everyone should be lol. I enjoyed reading your stuff...and I guess I won't send you that gift snake I was gonna wrap up all pretty and mail off to you lol. Have a wonderful day!

Charlotte said...

If I didn't already have a wonderful hubby and if I was much much younger, I would want that guy. Sounds like you've got a great husband. The little cartoon is so cute. I must show it to my hubby. I know he would appreciate it.
Hugs,
Charlotte

Hi BJ,
And I always thought you set it up that way so your posts looked longer. I think that's so funny that you didn't intend for it to be that way. I love your fun meme! SO many fun facts and other tid bits. Can I play? I've been post dead for days now. My camera died and I've lost all inspiration. Oh Dear!

OK, I think that as far as your spacing goes I might be able to help. Above the box where you type your post there's a little thingy that looks like an eraser-highlight all your text then click on the eraser "thingy"- from there you should be able to back space with your cursor and pull your lines up to where they should be.
Let me know if it works.
Have a fun blessed day my friend.
XO Cori

BJ, I really enjoyed your post today. Now I know a whole lot more about you. We are alike in so many ways. It is my turn to say I wish I was your neighbor. Smile. Your hubby sounds like a great guy. Laughing and doing things together is awesome in a relationship. It's a good thing.

Love and hugs...Jeanne

Thanks for doing this tag. I loved learning more about you and your husband. They produced great husbands in the 1950s, didn't they? I managed to snag one, too. Sally

Sweetie said...

Hi BJ, Your post was wonderful. It was great learning so many things about you. I REALLY liked the collage with Harrison Ford's picture. I think that your blog looks great. I love the design of your title. I wish that I could learn more blog technology. I see so many beautiful backgrounds, etc. I tried a different background a week after I started blogging and had to begin all over again.

BJ, A friend of my daughter, Stephanie, did the pencil sketch from a photograph. I framed it and keep it in the bedroom that I have for Brooke, Sherry's youngest daughter, when she stays with us. Brooke loves it.

BJ....BJ!!! Come look what I found!!! Oh by the way I stole...uh.. borrowed something of yours for a minute!!!!!lol

Jackie said...

BJ, it was great learning more about you.

Your blog looks great, I wouldn't worry too much about double spacing. For some reason blogger decided to change things on my blog today no matter how many times I edited it.

God bless.
