I've been tagged by:


All four of these girls have great blogs, so stop by to see them.

I apologize for taking so long to respond to this tag, but this is not an easy one for me. Since I tend to over-share, you probably have already learned more about me than you ever wanted to know. I'll give it a try though.

~Rules to this Tag~
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write 6 random things about yourself.
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they been tagged and leave them a comment.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is posted.

1. My husband and I have been married for 39 years! Of course, I was a mere baby when we got married, and we have grown up together. He is a saint to have stayed married to me for this long, and I am still in love with him.

(See, we were just children when we got married!)

2. We have two children. Our daughter is 35 years old, and our son is 27 years old. Our daughter and her husband have given us two wonderful grandchildren, a girl and a boy, and our son and his wife have given us two wonderful granddaughters. I didn't believe people when they told me how wonderful grandchildren are, but that was before I had grandchildren! Mine are the cutest, the smartest, the best!

3. The first 7 years of our marriage, my husband kept saying he wished he had gone to law school. One day I said, "I don't want to be hearing about this when we are an old married couple--either do it or quit talking about it". I thought he'd quit talking about it, but when our daughter was 3 years old, he went to law school, and I worked and supported us until he graduated. When he opened his law office (30 years ago), I went to work with him -- just temporarily, until he could find someone else, and I'm still working with him! As my dear friend, Gloria, loves to say, I sleep with the boss.

4. I come from a very small family. My mother was an only child, and my daddy had one sister. Both my parents are deceased, and my only living relative is my sister. We are biological sisters, but we were adopted when she was almost three and I was almost four years old. Since I live in Arkansas, and she lives in Florida, I seldom get to see her.

(I'm the one with the chubby cheeks)

5. In contrast to my small family, my husband has 2 brothers and a sister, and they all live in this area, so we see them frequently. When I say that we have 30 people at our house for holiday dinners, it is mainly my husband's siblings, their children, and their grandchildren. Since I always wanted to be part of a large family, I guess I looked for a husband with a large family!

6. Now for the big reveal of the most shocking truth yet. I drink Tab soft drinks. For those of you who are too young to remember, Tab was the first diet soft drink. When it came out, everybody thought it tasted horrible. So did I, but I was drinking so many colas that I decided I had to drink this diet drink. It's kind of like beer-your first taste is horrible, and then you get used to it, and you like it (I never made myself get used to the taste of beer, but I sure made myself get used to the taste of Tab). I have been drinking Tab for more years than I care to count. Yes, they still make it, although it is a little trouble to find. The grocery store in my hometown stocks it for me! They do not want to see me have Tab withdrawals in their store!

The advantage to taking so long to respond to this tag is, that by the time I got around to responding, Donna had made an award to go along with this tag, so I get to post an award too!

Now, isn't that award so cute. Thanks Donna!

The disadvantage of being so late is that I can't find a blogger who hasn't already participated in this tag. If you haven't yet done it, please feel free to take this award and respond to this tag on your blog. laurie
