30/30: Twelve Interesting Facts About Me

The 30/30 Vision Blog Challenge returns today after taking a week of for Good Friday, and the prompt is simple- 12 interesting facts about me. Like most people, I don't find myself to be all that interesting, but since that is order of the day I shall attempt to come up with a dozen things that are at least semi-noteworthy. Here we go...

  1. Breakfast is my favorite meal to eat out.
  2. I would love to try my hand at professional improv comedy. I've been doing it in real life situations forever- it would be fun to give it a try on stage with some experts in the field!
  3. I only have 7 toes.
  4. As I grow older the thing I fear losing the most is my memory. Not only do I love telling old stories and sharing wisdom from days gone by, but I am often responsible for helping my oldest friends remember what happened to them in their younger days as well. I am so thankful to be blessed with a mind that retains those moments of great joy and sorrow.
  5. I have seen the Pacific Ocean in California, Washington, Oregon and Mexico...but I have never been swimming in it.
  6. Despite all of my injuries and ailments over my lifetime, I have yet to break a bone. Knock on wood.
  7. I play the guitar. I sang in school choruses and ensembles in jr. high and high school. I was in numerous church choirs over the years and led worship at national youth events. I have written close to 100 songs, words and music. And I cannot read a note of music...
  8. Aside from loving people in the name of Jesus there is nothing that brings me more joy than making people laugh.
  9. Aside from The Godfather Part 2 and The Empire Strikes Back, I believe the greatest true sequel in the history of movies is The Lion King 1 1/2
  10. I am 54 years old and am still in touch with friends I have known for over 40 years. To me, that's an accomplishment.
  11. I am not much of a cook except for 3 things: Sausage Balls, Fudge, & Shrimp and Crab Casserole. 
  12. I have been to paradise. It's also known as Spanish Wells, the Bahamas. And I've been twice. That may just make me better than you.  :)
So there you have it- 12 things about me that at least interest me! What do you find most interesting about yourself? I'd love to hear!

Because of Jesus,


  1. Shrimp and crab casserole? Oh my that sounds amazing! It is going to make it harder to get up and eat some toast for breakfast.

    1. Andrea, it is pretty darn tasty! Hope I get a chance to feed you guys sometime!

  2. 2. Maybe one day you and I can find a comedy club or inprov place and have a go at it. I'm not a professional but would LOVE to improv with you, sometime!

    5. The Pacific is FREEZING COLD! :-) I dare not go in the water much at all! It turns my skin red!

    10. That's awesome. I aspire to do the same! I try my best to not lose touch with anyone, and when I do, I search for them. Does that sound creepy?!
