Random List of Thirteen Things About Me

1) I am left handed
2) I am extremely directionally challenged and have a close relationship with my GPS.
3) I've been to Stirling Castle in Scotland but have yet to watch Braveheart because we were eating pepperoni pizza when it first came on and the bloody scene grossed out my whole family.
4) I once got lost with a group of Baylor grad students in Beijing, China while on an early morning jog. We were talking, not paying attention, and found ourselves miles from where we started, but ended up finding our way back to the hotel. That was a bit scary.
5) Our cab driver in Ixtapa, Mexico took my husband and me to a deep pit with water at the bottom, and a local fisherman used some of his catch to lure the crocodiles to jump out of the water to entertain the two of us. (What were we thinking---that could have been dangerous!)
6) I grew up living at the lake and regularly caught bass, catfish, crappie, perch and (ooooh) carp.
7) My cousin and I were trying to get some persimmons from a persimmon tree one time when we were kids, and were chased by a bull. (He was unsuccessful but I ripped my pants on the barbwire fence.)
8) We have a daughter, son, and three very sweet grandchildren.
9) I met my husband in Sunday School and we have been happily married 45 years.
10) I have a personally signed autograph of the "Three Stooges."
11) I've never seen "Bigfoot," but am totally intrigued by him!
12) I'm a retired elementary school principal (as of this June) and oh, do I have some stories!
13) I picked the number 13 because that was my basketball number in high school.

    As far as I'm concerned Braveheart was one big bloody scene. Not my cup of tea!
    I'd rather have been to Stirling Castle in Scotland and leave it at that!

    Thank you, friends, for your responses and for reading my blog. I was feeling silly at the moment! I will definitely have to share some funny school stories one of these days and I do want to watch Brave Heart!! Mel Gibson is such an awesome and talented actor. 2BDynamic, I will have to share some of these on our team wall - and yes, our marriages were made in heaven. My husband was teaching the Sunday School class in place of the regular teacher the first day I attended, and I was like--hmmmm, very impressive! We became good friends through our youth group and the rest is history!

The 1st time he's walked in the door holding a small brown bible I did a double tape wondering who he was! Forty two years later, here we are! You could Say it was a match made in heaven as it sounds like yours was too! ...💞 ....😍....👍

    You have had a very fascinating life! ... Sure glad that bull didn't get you or the crocodiles either LOL! ...🤔 .... Not sure which one would have been worse! ... emoticon ....Granted, There were some bloody scenes in Brave heart, yet, a true story with William Wallace gaining freedom for the Scots.
