So here goes. Eleven random facts about me:
I spent a summer in the seventies (late seventies -- okay, mid-seventies) hiking up the coast of California.
I once helped deliver a baby at home.
I am a BIG Bob Dylan fan.
I lived in Flagstaff, AZ for five years.
I am obsessed with Sons of Anarchy. (Opie, I miss you!) But hey, the new season of Justified began last night! Thank you, F/X.
For my birthday this year I took my son to see Drake White, Kenny Wayne Shephard, and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
A few months before the concert above, I took my granddaughter to see Swan Lake.
I once lived in an old church that still had the steeple on it.
I am extremely clumsy.
I cannot parallel park. (See above.)
I once had to go to court because a crazy woman (not me) accused my roommate's dog of stealing her chicken. The police searched my house for the chicken, but found no evidence. Why did I end up in court? My roommate's dog, Mac, was in the yard when they arrived, so they got him on a leash law violation. I had to sign for him right then or let them call animal control. Because I signed for the dog, I had to show up in court as the "owner." Mac was cleared of all chicken related charges, but I had to pay the leash law violation fees. We celebrated with a trip to KFC and the pet store for a toy chicken. I spent the rest of the day teaching Mac to retrieve the toy chicken whenever I said, "Winner, winner. Chicken dinner."
