B. Miller passed on to me the Creative Writing(Liar) Award...what a honor, I am thrilled, but I know I need a lot of work. The catch is, I have to list 7 things about myself; six truths and one lie...see if you can figure it out.
I worked in a hotel in Anchorage, Alaska. Famous people frequented, often, The Smothers Brothers, David Copperfield, and other entertainers. When the bell hop took, David Copperfield, to his room, he disappeared right before his eyes. He said, he was the devil!
The first time I flew was on Friday the 13th, to London, England, it was a long journey from Maine. There was no fog the whole time I was there, it was hot and in the 70's. We were told to pack for weather like spring in New England, it wasn't like that, at all.
My Dad learned to play the guitar listening, by ear. He was always a picking an' a grinning. I learned later to play, by ear, when my Dad didn't have time to teach me. My Dad's friends nicknamed me spider, it was the way I strummed the strings.
I was dared to try out for Miss Bay Festival. We had to go to a formal tea, with a bunch of stuffy socialites. I hated every minute of it, except for the free chicken dinner and the parade I was in. I rode in a fancy convertible, with the top down. I didn't win; I was relieved, when it was over, not my style.
I once dated a mortician; our first date, nice dinner,with mutual friends. Second date, he took me to a funeral home,discussing business, while a dead body was in an open casket, huh?! That was our last date...creepy.
In 1999, the film "Message In A Bottle" was filmed in Bath, ME. My husband was stationed in Brunswick, Me. They were building the ship, at Bath Iron Works, that would be commissioned to head to Honolulu, HI. I ran into Kevin Costner, while in Bath. He was coming out of the museum. He was kind and very, good looking! The odd thing was I was reading the book, at the time.
One Halloween, Hubby n' I went to a costume party. I dressed up as man, no one knew me, til my husband walked in and kissed me...he was drinking and blew my cover. He is easy to find in a crowd, auburn hair, almost 6'4.
Swimmer, I will be posting the award you gave me tomorrow; I need to list 7 random facts about me~
*Yes, I live near the Dismal Swamp; so there are a lot of turtles in our yard. Isn't this one adorable. My
daughter found him/her. I had to take pic; I do believe this one was newly hatched~
Thank you B. Miller, for this fun award~
