Thursday HOP

Discovered a new meme while visiting Shawn at The Becker's (Shawn and Bill).  I'm a little late, but here we go!

This one is from Dollycas's Thoughts.  She will post three questions on Thursdays and you can play along from Thursdays through Mondays!  So there's plenty of time to join in the fun!

Here's what Dollycas has to say:

"Each Thursday I will post 3 questions for you to answer that you can copy and post on your blog with your answers. You don’t have to be a blogger to participate either. I will be using a Linky List for the blogs to use to participate and follow each other around to get to know each other, but if you are not a blogger just answer the questions in the comment section following the post on your favorite blog. Please feel free to click on the links and visit other blogs too." 

"This way we not only get to know other bloggers, we get to know our followers too.  I am really excited about this meme and hope many more people will join the fun!!!!!"

Are you interested?


1. When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up? I'm pretty sure some of you already know the answer to this question and it is rather strange.  But, when I was little I wanted to be a linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys!  I loved football and I loved the Dallas Cowboys!  I still do although once the Carolina Panthers came to my hometown, I just had to pull for them.  But only when they aren't playing the Cowboys! 

2. Did you go to college?  Yes.  I went to the same college for undergrad and grad school.  I had a blast in college which means that I was on the five year plan during my undergraduate studies.  I have a BA in Sociology and Psychology and a MS in Early Childhood Development.  All four of our daughters have or still are attending college also.  We're kind of an education crazy family!
This is one of the only college pictures I have scanned into the computer. 

3. Do you attend your high school or college reunions?  No.  I don't attend any high school reunions because I didn't like most of those people then and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't care for them now (small town, prejudices, bad politics, small minds).  However, some of the music wasn't too bad (check out the video below-I think it came out junior year).  I don't attend college reunions because none of my close friends were in my graduating class- everyone was older than I was and, by the time I graduated, they were in grad school or already out in the world.  But I am in touch with most of them to this day.  Two live right here in the same town and the rest are all within driving distance with the exception of one.  I'm not driving to Oregon. 


  1. Those are great questions. Can't believe you wanted to play football. I never went to college but I have gone to a few of my HS reunions.

  2. love this post! i love interview posts because they aren't normally questions you would ask yourself and write about.

    i am in the same boat as you when it comes to reunions. Facebook is enough for me! With the exception of my best friend, I don't socialize w/ anyone from HS.

  3. A linebacker..You Go GIRL!!!!! I love that answer!

    Your college picture is beautiful, is you hair still long and thick?
    It was fun going to the reunion and seeing how everyone had aged..except me..of course!

  4. Debby- I know, but I just loved football. Probably because of the Sundays I spent sitting with my dad watching games.

    Momma-Yeah, reunions are overrated in my book. My brother, T, loves to go to his though.

    Shawn-Thanks! Yes, it's still long and thick but I pull it up in a pony tail every day so I don't know why I don't just cut it. Of course you haven't aged!

  5. This is great. I love the idea of answering some questions and use it as a post...Football uh? i can totally see that, and it would have been fun too. LOve your college pic, you look sooo cute! :)

  6. Betty- Football is so exciting- a great way to blow off steam every Sunday during the season!

    Alessandra- It is a fun way to post- especially when you're running dry as I am right now. LOL Thank you!

  7. Loved getting to know you better through your answers!

  8. Welcome and thanks for playing!!! Big Packer Fan here and your newest follower!!!! See you next week I hope!!!

  9. Good to find out a little more about you. :)

    I didnt stay on at school after 16, but if I had the chance again, I would.
    I did ok in the world of work with jobs in offices and schools.

    My daughter is now taking her exams and planning to stay on at school for another 2 yrs. I do envy her :)


  10. Linebacker, huh? I'm impressed! ;-)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
