My list of 25!

November 16th, 2006 at 02:38 pm

Okay since everyone else is doing this I guess I can do so as well!

1) I am the size of of an Offensive tackle in the NFL.6'6" and 330 lbs.

2) I sing tenor and I actually have a very nice voice.

3) I missed being an Eagle Scout by one merit badge.

4) I have worked as a bartender and I was a darn good one. It was the most fun job I ever had.

5) The first great love of my life eloped and married someone else which broke mty heart at the time!

6) I am a notary public.

7) I am a certified firearms instructor.

8) Unbeknownst to all my guy friends I like making potpourri with different scented oils. It just would not go over well with the fellas.

9) I have seen enough death and suffering such that I don't ever want to see any anymore.

10) I like wearing baseball caps.

11) I volunteer with local sheriff's dept. as a reservist.

12) I always found that sitting around a camp fire, roastig marshmallows, singing corny songs, and drinking hot cocoa, is about the funnest thing on the planet to do!

13) My eyes well up when I watch sad movies like Brians Song or The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. I am at heart a big mush!

14) I love gadgets and tools. They are my favorite gifts! I love to tinker.

15) I once gave serious thought to being a priest.

16) I am on the executive committee of a local political party.

17) I have been a Chicago Cubs Fan before it was fashiobnable. I have never stepped foot in the state of Illinois.

18) I love singing Doo-Wop music and I do it every chance I get.

19) I am one of nine children!

20) Walks on rainy days followed by hot coaoa, a warm blanket, and a good book in the recliner are like gold!

Dinner is ready so I'll post the next five as soon as I am done!Smile

Okay I am back form dinner and here are the next five.

21) I have been known to fall asleep at services and have my wife give me an elbow to wake me up!

22) I love putting lightsup for all the holidays and Christmas is the biggie!

23) I grew up poor so everything I have I am truly amazed that I have.

24) I have milked a cow and moved them to water with the aid of a dog. I have planted corn and picked apples. I have watched a calf being born. While sheep are cute they are amonst the dumbest of God's creatures!

25) I really love my wife and family. God is good and merciful and life can be beautiful if you look at in the proper perspective.

Well, that was 25 off the top of the head!WinkSmile

  5. tinapbeana Says:

    price, i'm sitting here just about speechless because in so many ways you sound like my husband. it's really weird, absolutely eerie.... just substitute fireman for police officer, playing with cats for potpourri, first love cheated for first love eloped ...

  6. PRICEPLUS Says:

    Julie, I think youwould make a great bartender. Itis more than serving drinks. It is about talking with folks in such a way as to make them feel at home. I think you have that touch!

    Amber, They say time heals all wounds but you never forget that first great love. It is really bittersweet!

    Miclason, if the fellas knew I would be ribbed merciilessly. I also like scented candles! As I type I have two candles burning in the room. The first is McCall's Campfire Marshmallows and the second is McCall's Cabin Scents.

    BA thanks about the sympathy for #8 and the understanding on #7.WinkSmile

    Gotta love a guy who likes to make potpourri! Priceless!

  9. PRICEPLUS Says:

    I don't know. It is just that nice smelling things are very soothing to me. Scented candles smell nice. They also make the room smell nice. It just feels like comfort when yousmell it!

    Boy aam I glad the fellas don't know a blessed thing about this!

    By the way BA if I were a bear I'd be Gentle Ben or Yogi or some such non-threatening charactrer. I look scary but I am as gentle a person as ever the good Lord created.:WinkSmile
