I’ve been tagged by Furrow.

The rules:
Let others know who tagged you.
Tell 8 random facts about yourself.
When you’re tagged, post these rules and 8RF about yourself.
Tag 8 other people.

My 8RFs:

  1. I have lived 8 time zones to the east of home (Syria) and 8 time zones to the west of home (Japan). Like those 8s.

  2. I proposed to Roger. At a Bronco game. On the DiamondVision scoreboard.

  3. I have never had a PBJ sandwich.

  4. I played the piccolo in high school.

  5. I would go to great lengths for a really good mojito.

  6. I was told by a ski instructor my first time out that I had “rubber knees.” The nickname stuck (the comment was overheard by a member of the church group) and it took me two decades to get back on skis.

  7. When I was a Brownie, I won a baking contest for a recipe called, “Rickety Uncle.”

  8. I can usually guess the time within about 5 minutes.

So, if you’re reading and you haven’t already blogged 8 Random Factss, consider yourself tagged. Comment here when you post your own.

Nicknames are horrible to get rid of! My dad still calls me “bugger”.

I was going to be all incredulous about the PBJ thing, but now I get it. I figured you were probably allergic, anyway.I’m so impressed by your world travels. I’d like to live outside of my STATE at some time in my life.If only I had shortening, I could go make some Rickety Uncles right now.

You really have never had a PBJ sandwich? WOW it is one of my faves. If you ever try it, grill it like a grilled cheese. THE BEST EVER!!!!You should post your winner recipe. :) What does it make?

Deathly allergic.I might grill one up for the kids, though. Sounds, ummmm, interesting.Rickety Uncles (I found out it’s plural) is a dessert. I googled and found this (no nuts!):RICKETY UNCLES3/4 cup shortening1 cup brown sugar1 cup rolled oats1 cup of flour1 tsp. salt1 tsp. vanillaBlend well so that the mixture is crumbly not dry.. like pastry.Press into pans or a cookie sheet with forkCook at 325° for approx. 10 min. watch edges carefully for burningCut into squares before it cools.Checking out your meme now…
