I'm so glad you decided to do this. Now, I know some new things about you.
Interesting: My Mother had an Uncle who called her Toots and me Little Toots because he thought I was like her. He lived in Georgia and we didn't see him too often. It never stuck. But sometimes I'd here other family there refer to her this way.

You have NEVER danced in the RAIN??? Grams! You get your butt out into the very next rain and DANCE!!! You MUST! Take Nancy with you!!! I have this meme scheduled to post in the A.M! And it IS a long one! I found it over at Hootin' Anni's first!

Hootin' Anni said...

I did this meme too, a couple of days ago. Here is mine. I guess I'm one of those girls who was 'trouble' all the time in my youth. What you answered 'no' to, I had to answer 'yes'. Hmmmmmm, I will be good from now on, honest.

Loved your meme answers. I, like Melli, think you MUST dance in the rain.

Giant hugs dear Grams.

I have read several of these now!! Good answers. I may do this when I get home. I am at work now and this is MY LAST DAY!! I have loved this job but I need to be available for my parents and my grands now. Family is always more important. Sandy

Glo said...

Got it saved. Will do when I feel better.

Hello dear Carolyn:-)

I just did this meme on my blog this morning! lol It's such a fun one and I so enjoyed reading your answers to the questions. That is really awesome that your son's mother in law has been to Africa 10 times on missions...imagine having such a great opportunity seeing such a beautiful country!! Have a wonderful week dear friend. xoxo

Melli said...

LOL! Noooo Grams! The Meme was MEANT to be done just the way YOU did it! I just get tired of answering some of the same old questions over and over -- you know - when ya do EVERY bloomin' meme - you get 'em ALL! So sometimes I just like to take advantage of opportunities that come my way! NO ONE else would have thought the questions were about the mother! (and I didn't either - I just MADE it that way!)

Cindy Swanson said...

Wow, Grams, I feel like I know you better now! Also, I didn't realize you were Swedish...so is my husband, and our main Christmas celebration has always been on Christmas Eve. That's when we open presents and everything. We continue the celebration on Christmas Day, but the highlight is Christmas Eve.

Linda said...

You have never been skinny dipping??? Me either...

I agree with Melli....get out there and dance in the rain. I must admit every time it rains I have a deep desire to go out and shake my bootie!!
