Post 7 interesting things about yourself.



Seven things about myself:

1. I am the only living member of my immediate family – there were four of us.

2. I don’t smoke and never will.

3. I am retired and am reinventing myself according to what I am able to do now with my health and mobility issues.

4. I started blogging in March 2012 and have found a part of myself I never knew was there. And I found the WordPress Family who are wonderful and wise and supportive

5. I think Cannabis should be legal, it causes LESS trouble than people who drink,

6.I read quirky books and mostly non-fiction. The novels I read are filled with unusual and interesting people.

7. I have been a widow for seventeen years and have nine grandchildren.

8. My day is not complete unless I have helped someone.

9. Woman’s and children’s issues are the center of my political life since the sixty’s. I was marching and picketing then.

10. I love to try new things at least once.
