Tag..I'm IT

I have been tagged again by Brandy. This one is different. It is sets of 4 things I know you're just dying to know about me. I gave you a little intermission so you should be ready for another tag game by now after the hat fashion show. The only thing these tags prove to me is what a very boring person I am!! So here's another very boring list for you:

4 jobs I have had:
1. Hair dresser
2. Went to work for the government at age 19..FCC secretary
3. Typist for Geico..typed policies and endorsements

Good Morning Hope,
Since your still sleeping, LOL, I will fix a pot of coffee myself and sit down and read more about you. LOL. We do have some things in common. I love the Reba re-runs as well. Since you worked for Geico, did you get a Geico to bring home? LOL. You are not boring me with all these Meme's. I really do enjoy reading them. I always like to know things about my blogging friends. I did another Meme today and I came out of the closet in my first one. You'll just have to come over for a visit and read it. "THANK YOU" for sharing more things about you. Tis another cold morning here. It is 19 degrees with a windchill of 6 degrees. My DH just got home about 30 minutes ago. He has gone to bed to get some rest. He doens't rest as good out on the road as he does here at home. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

I so loved your previous post with all the pictures...it must have been so much fun to try on all those hats! I don't wear hats for the obvious reason that they just make me look funny! lol

I've so enjoyed your meme answers...Karen tagged me for one the other day so must get at it soon! I love finding out new things about my friends:-) Like you, I watch Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader...makes me feel pretty dumb since a lot of times I can't even answer the grade 1 questions! lol

Hope your day is a wonderful one!! xoxo

Sue@CountryPleasures said...

Peggy said...

Hope,
I liked your list and will do my meme tomorrow as I posted a special request on my blog today. (and I need a day to think of answers! LOL)

Tammy said...

Karen H tagged me for this and I'll try to do mine tomorrow.

I'm not bored in the least! I love finding out new facts about my blog friends!

Christie said...

Hope, I love visiting your cheery blog and seeing you and your family. I would love to see you mountains someday and put Oklahoma on your places to visit. c

Betty said...

Golly gee, Hope, you are jack of all trades. Hairdresser, typist, sewer, master blogger! Is there anything you can't do?

I love to watch Lifetime movies, too. And cornbread and beans? Makes me want to head on out to Cracker Barrel as I don't have any beans cooked.

Nora Lee said...

Boring?! No way. Anybody that likes soup bean, fried cabbage, and likes to stay home is alright by me!

Thank you so much for stopping by for my show and tell today. As I had said before my mother is from Virginia and that is where those pictures were taken on my scrapbook page. So many times I have thought of how selfish we have become, but would hope that if it were needed again that people would pull together like they did during the 40's to look out for one another.

Take care,
Sandra

Hi, Hope...thanks for stopping by. And, I, too, love LOTS of stuff around me in my rooms. I like to call it "controlled clutter"....if it doesn't have a meaning or some special story behind it, I don't like it as much. Nearly everything I have does have a meaning and I wouldn't part with it. I do like some matching things....however, saying that, let me add that most of my furniture does not match, by a long shot.
I would love for you to post some of your rooms...I'd like to see them. I'll do the same sometime. It is so fun to "window peep" into others homes....
I enjoyed reading the things about you! And, you aren't boring in the least. I, too, can do cartwheels for hot cornbread and butter!!

hugs, bj

Lib said...

Gosh Hope, there is NOTHING boring about really good cornbread. CLINCHPORT?!!! What a name. So you were once a Clinchportian. Or a Clinchportite? Ah this is funny! So did you get the gekko's autograph from Geiko...you know he is my absolute, no jokes, spokesperson out there. - Love you... Jennifer
