- Alice Thompson I can't believe you just tagged me. The last time I played tag was when I was about 8 or 23. But now that I think about it, a year or so ago, the cop that said I was doing 62 in a 50 zone promptly "tagged" me for speeding. This is far more enjoyable. Anyway, having just gotten started with art again, Karin's DSFDF and a brand spankin new blog, I feel honored and hope the seven people who I have no idea who they are, feel the same way. I chose artists for the most part that participate in the weekly challenge whose paintings and blogs I enjoy. They are all very talented individuals. So the rules as I understand them are as follows... Tell the world seven things not commonly known about yourself and tag seven other lucky people to keep the dream alive. Oh ya, and put a link in your post to the person (that would be me) that tagged you. And the lucky winners are: Jerry Points, Lesley Spanos, Karel Tuinart, Kari Tirrell, Annie Salness, Jeanne Bauer, Amber Lounder. Aparantly collecting on this prize is optional, but FUN! Hope you all join in, but if you don't, no harm no foul. Now Alice said I would be learning a couple of things here about blogging. Well we'll see. So far...nothing......still nothing......pause...........okay I'm back and thanks to Alice's tutorial I was able to link everyone, but I still don't know how to make this look pretty. And now, without further ado, here are seven things about me. #1. Everything that Camille LaRue Olsen said in her list except #'s 1,2,3,4,6,&7. #2. If ever I barf, it comes out my nose, so know this, that NEVER happens. Way back when, the docs used to remove everything that was superfluous if they had you on the bench. Kind of like making a stock car. In the end I wasn't half bad in track and field. #3. I have fabulous twin daughters who will be extremely proud of their father when they read #2. #4. I have a lovely and very bright wife, Rose, who is a human resources director at a large hotel here in Winnipeg. (my nickname for her is... CSI, nothing gets past her) #5. I dropped out of a business administration college course after a couple of months knowing that any kind of structure in my life was not going to work. It didn't hurt that my psych teacher strongly agreed with that idea. I ended up as a self employed manufacturers agent and the rest as they say is history. #6. I started painting in the mid 80's, but business and family took my eye off the ball for a few years and it's only been recently that I have started back in ernest. I love painting and virtually any kind of creativity and definitely want to be an artist when I grow up. #7. Karin Jurick is my hero for getting the inspiration and creative juices flowing. Man I hope she doesn't think I'm some kind of stalker, but I am beholdin to that gal. And I'm sure there are a few more out there who feel the same as me. That's it, that's all. Thanks for taking the time and I wish you all good painting or whatever it is you do.
