I was tagged by a great friend, Jordanna, over at http://quiltedcowgirl.blogspot.com/

So,  Here is the questions she posed. 

How many houses have you lived in?
I think I am number 5 
Would you rather fly or drive?
Drive - totally. I love taking pictures and seeing the scenery. 
Science or Math?
Math. Science is math plus loads more complications. 
If you could choose one book, other than your Bible, to take with you anywhere, what would it be?
Probably my inch thick survival book. Good stuff. :)
What do you think about keeping rats as pets?
Well, I have never heard of anyone keeping target practice as a pets....
What is your favorite meal?
Fried Chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, a small salad with ranch on the side, and a MASSIVE cup of sweet tea beside. Heaven on a plate. 
Do you have a favorite era of history?  If so, what is it?
1880s - 1920s. Age of the old west. When real cowboys lived and breathed and rode their mounts across the open plain. Oh, to have been born a different time era. *sigh*
Tea with the ladies or Shooting with the men?
Do I need to answer that? 
SHOOTING OF COURSE - drinking sweet tea. :) 
Do you have a favorite section of Scripture?
Proverbs. Totally. Plain, simple wisdom, right where it hurts, no nonsense truth. No beatin' around the bush. Call it how it is. Whew, I have had quite a few bruises from the blows that book has dealt.
Would you rather fix something or buy a new one?
Depends on what it is. More than likely, get it fixed - with duct tape. :)
What is the next skill you plan on learning?
I am learning to birth horses, but I repairing my truck appears to be next on the list as well.  

All right, here is 11 random things about me. 

1. HATE mushy bananas. Bleagh. Turns my stomach.   
2. I have one ear slightly higher than the other, so my glasses are permanently tweaked. :) 
3. I have chronically sweaty hands, so I gunk, gum and filthify about anything I have my hands on regularly. Imagine my computer......
4. Any time I see a rabbit I wish I could shoot it. Rabbits are really glad that you are not allowed to shoot a handgun within city limits.  
5. Any time you drive my somebody on the road sticking their feet out the window of a car, I want to pull up close and tickle them. Haven't tried that yet. 
6. I am a sucker for a good joke. 
7. I fixed a tent last time I went camping with rubber bands. Seriously. 
8. I found out it is possible to sleep with a semi-auto in a holster in a sleeping bag. Its uncomfortable, but possible. 
9. I am perfectly happy between the temperatures of 45 - 65 degrees. Above that it is WAY too hot. 
10. After I shave a dog and I am as hairy as the dog I just shaved, I join the dog for a roll in the grass. Seriously, it works to get the hair off. 
11.I am 18 and still only have my driving permit. I intend to fix that VERY soon. 

Ok, my questions for those I have tagged. 

Favorite movie of all time.

Do you prefer touchscreen phones or regular flip phones? 

Small party with five close friends or large party with thirty not-so-close friends.

Daisy's or roses? 

What was the last time you laughed so hard you cried? 

Do you prefer to shoot your game and eat it or buy it packaged from the store? 

Coffee or hot chocolate? 

Federalist or Anti-federalist? (yes, do some research before you answer this one.)  

Do you intend to go see the Hobbit in 3D when it comes out? 

Do you prefer: Guys, facial hair or clean shaven? Girls, shoulder length hair or longer? 

Are you a Early Bird or a Night Owl?

Have fun! 


  1. Fun stuff, bro!

    Totally, totally with you on #1 of your random things. Bananas period aren't the best, but *mushy* bananas? Ugh.

    Goodness! You came up with some AWESOME random questions!! Those are fun!

  2. 18, eh? I thought you were in your twenties.

    Federalist or Anti-Federalist? Wow, you shouldn't have asked ACR that one...

    1. Don't worry, you aren't the first to think I am older than I really am. Oldest I have been called is thirty. :D

  3. If I remember correctly, at one point I was reading on here and you mentioned getting your carry permit...So I guess that means in AZ, one can get a permit before the age of 21? (I thought that was kind of standard.) I remember being awed seeing guys in the grocery store with their guns strapped to their hip :)

    Got to agree with the banana thing--only thing a mushy banana is good for is 'nanner bread...

    1. Um, no. You don't need any carry permits of any sort in Az, so I therefore don't have one.
      The heaviest armed nation is the safest!
      Oh yes, but only for my moms chocolate banana muffins with chocolate chips. Now were talking good. Those things are just about addicting.

  4. This is a lot of fun to read!

    "I am 18 and still only have my driving permit. I intend to fix that VERY soon."

    Boy, can I sure empathize with you.

  5. Ha ha! This is interesting... I haven't seen it before :) (But that isn't saying much :P) You have only lived in 5 houses? I have lived in 13. You are 18 and don't have your licence yet... I am 21 and don't. Oh, and I got my permit when I was 14 :) I just like being the passenger. This is a fun way to get to know different people :) Ha ha!

  6. Hey David! Thanks! :) I'm not sure when I'll get to the questions on my blog, but I appreciate the tag and the mention. I can tell you right now what my favorite movie is, though - Saving Private Ryan (1997), hands-down. :)

  7. You'd like our part of the country - much of the year is indeed between that 45 to 65 range! Summer rises generally to the 80's - good thing if you want a garden to grow - and winter can dip to the 20's, but that's not all day every day and it really isn't so bad! Anyplace will always have the brief exceptions, but that's pretty much our range! Anyway, just saying! We really really love it up here - and oh, the sky is huge and the people very freedom loving!! :)


Tell me what you think!
I don't care if you disagree, hate me or love me! Just comment!
