I’ve had the dubious honor of being the recipient of the Honest Scrap Award, wherein I’m obliged to share ten honest scraps of information about myself. Thanks, Gwyn Ramsey!
Well, here goes:
1. I grew up on a 6,000-acre ranch in eastern Montana.
2. My first newspaper experience was a little tabloid I did in grade school entitled the “Sagebrush Saga.”
3. My first horse’s name was Money. He didn’t last long (he bucked).
4. My second was Strawberry. I had him for many years.
5. I attended a one-room country school and when I started first grade, there were four kids in the entire school.
6. I attended high school in a town 35 miles away and lived in a dormitory during the week.
7. We first got electricity when I was age six.
8. Our first indoor bathroom was installed when I was a junior in high school.
9. I once sang in Carnegie Hall with Sweet Adelines.
10. My mother was a German “war bride.”
So, now I have the honor of bestowing the Honest Scrap Award on seven others. I’ve crowned the following fine fellow bloggers–check out their websites and see what they have to say.
Thanks to all my friends and acquaintances for all of your wonderful comments, encouragement and support. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
