70 Quirks About Me

If you've been reading my blog for any length of time you know I love doing memes! So when Maryellen tagged me she knew what she was doing! Without further ado here are 70 Quirks About Me....

Blueberries. They were my dessert (I'm writing this on Thursday night)

"Wouldn't you rather drive?"

7. How many U.S states have you been to?
I think it's 28.

8. What state did you dislike the most?
I wouldn't say I disliked it but I wouldn't want to live in Wyoming! HB and I got snowed in for several days when we were trying to pass through Wyoming. It's beautiful but too much snow for me!

9. How many of the U.S states have you lived in?
I think nine!

10. Does anyone you know wanna date you?
I sincerely doubt it!!

11. Name something you like physically about yourself.
My hair. It's easy to care for and I actually like the gray!

This may sound strange but "Ghost" was one of the first movies that HB and I saw together.

After HB it would be Gail....we've been friends since we were about nine years old!

  1. Good morning Janet, Thank you for coming by. The picture you saw is of my Great Grandparents and my Grandma Stinnet. The picture of she and Grandpa are on my blog. The one about Grandpa's hat.
    Loved you me...I looked at you blogs last night, all of them. Yes, i am a night person. You are certainly loved by all the bloggers who visit. Have a great day...I will take a picture of this picture. Hugs

  2. I like it, Janet! I may have to this one! :-)

  3. Janet what wonderful answers you have given it make me feel as though I know you a lot better now.
    And about question 61---what I want to know is even though my husband and I use the same soap and hair shampoo when we shower how come he always smell a lot nicer that I do?

  4. I must say I did laugh out loud at a number of your answers. Bette Midler huh? I don't see it, but maybe the hairdo would make a difference. This was a fun one to do and a fun one to read.
