Am I unusual? Oh yeah!


Cyn and Farmboy, circa 1969

I've been "tagged by Dee, over at Mrs Peterson's Place to name 7 "unusual" things about me.
Truth be told, I think there are plenty more than 7, so I will show some constraint, and keep my list down.

1.Met Farmboy when I had JUST turned 16, and married him a month after I turned 18...which means we just celebrated 37 years. THAT's the unusual part!!! (Do the math...I am 55 now!)

2. I will always be "Young", as that is my last name! (I LOVE telling folks that)

3. Before getting saved in 1978, I was a REALLY bad Catholic.

4. I used to have VERY curly hair until menopause...now it is barely wavy.

5. The Christmas music starts 'round here about a week before Thanksgiving. Can't help myself. Not another note after Dec. 25 tho.

6. I have had 2 stepmothers and 2 stepfathers.

7.I used to have really bad breath until Farmboy told me to start flossing before bed. (his habit for many, many years) That was 4 New Years Eves ago, and I have NOT missed one night since. Not even if we go to bed at 2am. Not even if I have had the flu. AND....my breath has greatly improved!

Oh my! There are so many more I could list!
Now, Dee wants me to "tag" 7 others, but I can't think of anyone who has the time for this....so
if you are so inclined, join in.
Pin It!
