Five Things

with 4 comments

I’ve decided to stop my Thursday Free for Alls because no one was commenting. Oh well.

Instead, at no specific intervals nor importance, I’m going to post things about me that people might not know.

1) I won the John Philip Sousa award in high school band for best musician. I was drum captain for three years in a row, which, to my knowledge, had not happened before. I have no idea if it’s happened since.

2) I had a freelance job with the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Alabama that required me to walk and “draw” every hole on their 18-hole courses. I later turned these drawings into illustrations that were used as hole cards attached to the golf carts. The cards showed distance from tee to greens, green slopes, hazards, etc.

3) I thoroughly enjoy sleight-of-hand tricks, and as a younger woman, used to be pretty good at several of them; however, like most other things, if you don’t practice and stay on top of it, you lose the ability to perform well.

4) My very first job (that I was paid for, not that I had to pay tax on) was in my Aunt Eva’s beauty shop in Tallassee, AL. I swept floors, mixed solutions, cleaned up curlers, dusted the counters, monitored the ladies’ hair dryers, etc.

5) I’ve owned 11 computers since 1994, (still have four, one being a non-functional laptop). I “upgrade” about every two years. So far, only one of the computers has gone screwy on me—the afore-mentioned laptop. Macs rule!!!

  1. I love this post! It’s cool to know this stuff about you. 🙂 I want to see a trick! I once had to draw every chair in the Fox Theatre. I still have five computers, one being a non-functional laptop. That laptop is the one and only PC I have ever owned. The macs are all still going strong!

  2. Fun post. Thank you for sharing. I’m not sure if I could determine the number of computers I have owned, and I doubt it was as many as you have owned.

    For some reason my computer had been having trouble accessing a great number of blogs of late and this is the first time in a number of weeks I have been able to get to your blog. I enjoyed interacting over at Ants Marching (i think that is where we wrote).
