I'm game!

I normally don't do this, but this sounds like fun. I was given the Kreativ Blogger award by Krafty Max Originals.

The rules to accepting this award state that I have to tell 7 things that most people don't know about me and then pass it along to 7 bloggers who have Kreativ Blogs!

Since I happen to think that all my followers have creative blogs, just go ahead, grab the Award and play the game.

Here I go:

1. I can write with both hands simultaniously, only the left hand writes in mirror image.

2. I served a 3-year apprenticeship with a law firm in Nuremberg (Germany) to become a Legal Aid

3. I am very good at playing Table Football (Kicker.)

4. I worked as a licensed Pharmacy Technician and also a Legal Secretary.

5. Aside from living in Germany for the first 18 years of my life, I spent time in Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Canada and Mexico. I lived in California for 30 years and have visited many states of the USA (I love to travel and discover new places.)

6. I had my own petsitting business, taking care of dogs, cats and birds.

7. I can play the accordeon

OK, your turn!

congratulations!! I already knew you were creative!! But I didn't know all those other things about you. I'm sure you could tell us some good stories.

Hi Doris! Oh my gosh, the accordion?! That is wonderful!! I practice my guitar, every chance I get, as my left hand is extremely uncoordinated, but I think it's getting better with practice!.. At least I hope so! ~tina

Hi Doris, nice award! They are always fun to play. I have never been to Spain, that must have been nice! You have had a busy week! I'm glad your friend is doing better and I just love Gizzy's sweater. The Lorax book is perfect for your tree. That still makes me mad. They are cutting down hundreds of trees in our surrounding towns because of the worms. Very strange if you ask me. Oh, Good Luck with Weight Watchers!
Have a nice day!

Nice to know more about you. I used to pet sit too, I found it too stressful as I worried too much about the pets when I was not with them :-). xoxo

Hi Doris,

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit. We love having company!

I hope you and Gizzy are doing well. I dont get to blog as much as I want due to health issues and being caregiver to disabled husband and 87 y/o mother, but I try to keep up with everyone as much as possible.

I hope you are having a great week.

Annie, I was very lucky in that most of my clientele was of the wealthy kind. Many of them had me spent the night at their mansions in "Coto de Caza" in Trabuco Canyon, California (an elite gated community of Million dollar homes) so that I was there more often than not. You'd be amazed at what I saw. This one lady cooked for her big African grey parrot. She had everything divvied out for me and even provided me with little drops in case he should get stressed. Everything was premeasured and written down for me as I am really no big bird expert. Money was no option for them and I really enjoyed myself. It was a fun job with great pay! I'd do that full time if I still lived there.
