I've Been Tagged!

Amy Derby has tagged me for the Random 8 Meme

According to Amy, here are The Rules: 1. Link to your tagger and post these rules. 2. List eight (8) random facts about yourself. 3. Tag eight people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them). 4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving them a comment on their blogs.

So here it goes:

Eight Things About Me (That You May Or May Not Want To Know.)

1. I'm a child of World War II.
2. I lived in a refugee camp for 4 years.
3. I inherited my first pet cat, Paprika, from my mother, who died shortly after I was born.
4. I am very patriotic!
5. I believe in the power of prayer!
6. I love being on the river in a jet ski.
7. I love riding down country roads in a 4 wheeler.
8. I love the TV show, Dancing with the Stars!

As for tagging 8 other people, I'll think about it.

Right now, got to get back to a story that I'm trying to finish before a deadline, or I will have an irate editor after me!

Thanks for tagging me, Amy.

You've done an excellent job, Renie! You're a very interesting, active, and fun lady--I'm so glad and honored to call you friend!


We surely don't want an irate editor, do we? ha ha!

Hurry, get that article turned in ;-)

Renie Burghardt said...

Aww, thank you, Michele. You say such nice things. Got the story done, but will go over it one more time tomorrow and then get it off. Whew! Glad that's off my mind.

Have a lovely evening. I'm so excited about your good news!



Amy Derby said...

Love your list! I am off to read your story on Common Ties now. :-)

Renie Burghardt said...

I enjoyed reading your meme as well. Thanks, Amy!

That's a very interesting list. Some of it I knew, but there are a few there that are a big surprise. Jet skis and 4 wheelers!! Sounds like a lot of fun. I love Dancing with the Stars, too. I would love to be able to dance like that!!

I am usually the passenger in the jet ski, and this jet ski has side-by-side seats, not the motorcycle seats. The 4-wheeler is a lot of fun. And I would love to be able to dance like some of the people on the show, too, but I enjoy tapping my toes to the music while watching the show. :-)

Hi Renie ~~ I enjoyed reading your random 8. I did it not long ago.
Thank you for your comments and I am glad that my posts give you a smile.
Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.

Thank you, dear Merle. I think, if I have the time figured right, that it's already Saturday in Australia. Have a lovely weekend.

Warm regards,
