What better day to do an MEME...

Seems as good a time as any, it's Friday, the work week is ending, and I'm too tired for any deep reflection. Thanks to bia for tagging me.

The Alphabet MEME

A is for age: 61

B is for burger of choice: Been a "couple" of years ago now, but an In and Out Burger. Can only get in California and since David, Kelly and the boys have moved to Charlotte, I don't expect to get one the way the fries are wonderful too. Oh, Ron wouldn't want me to forget the Redtop Hamburger in Colorado Springs...IT IS HUGE!!!! and good to boot. (Do I get paid for this advertising?)

C is for what kind of car ou drive: 2000 Toyota Camery

D is for your dog(s)'s name: Duke and Duchess (of Keller)--Sam the Cat is the court jester.

E is for essential item you use everyday: My stethoscope, it hangs around my neck from 8-5.

F is for favorite TV show at the moment: Monk (in summer mode will return SOON)

G is for favorite game: any live-in-the-stadium/arena sport. And at this moment to play: Apples to Apples.

H is for home state: Colorado and its "Rocky Mountain High!"

I is for instruments you play: piano, though I've attempted the harp and for lack of practice and sheer motivation have not practiced in some time...perhaps this weekend would be a good time to tune her and start again.

J is for favorite juice: Cranberry, Orange Juice, and Grapefruit juice.

K is for whose butt you'd like to kick: This could take some time so will move onto the next letter.

L is for last restaurant at which you ate: HMMM, it was last Saturday night when we went to dinner with Father Jason in Vincennes. It's a new restaurant and I don't remember its name. DUH!!! My baked spaghetti was wonderful though!

M is for your favorite Muppet: Fozzy Bear...I love his hat!

N is for the number of piercings: 2, one in each ear

O is for over night hospital stays: 9, one for each child, two miscarriages, a broken foot and skin graft on the foot. Oh, for got the gall bladder surgery (10).

P is for people you're with today: Drs., NP, staff and patients

Q is for what you do with your quiet time: read, knit, pray, blog, oh and not to forget watch OLD movies.

R is for the biggest regret: Cannot say I regret anything. No, I'm not a Pollyanna but with my life and its ups and downs, there's not a thing I can say I regret. I think I am better for what I have had and experienced.

S is for status: Married 40 years this July.

T is for time you woke up today: 4:30 a.m., Ron leaves for work at 5:00 a.m. now that he is car pooling to work.

U is for what you consider unique about yourself. Hmmm, what makes me special? I've moved and lived in five states and actually moved 5 times in one year from CO to VA to CA while we were in the Army. I've visited most of the continental US states. I think I've only missed traveling to Washington, Oregon, Idaho, North Dakaota, South Carolina, Florida, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. (Gee that's not so unique, I've still got to visit 9 states not including Hawaii and Alaska!) HUM

V is for vegetable you love: Asparagus, fresh tomatoes, and SWEET corn-on-the-cob

W is for worst habit: Nagging...(I hate it when I do that! It's not part of my thought process, I just do it!)

X is for x-rays you've had: Let's see. Dental, hip, foot, kidneys, and the one I deem most important is the MRI of the brain...Now I can PROVE to my children I have ONE!

Y is for yummy food you ate today: Fresh strawberry pie I made! YES!

Z is for Zodiac sign: Sagittarius

Now I will tag Tricia, Kelly and Laura

Have a grand weekend and enjoy the summer sun.


Thanks be to God!!
