8 Random Things

Melissa tagged anyone interested for the 8 Random Things Meme going around.
Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves
People who are tagged write a blog post about their own 8 random things and post these rules
At the end of your blog you need to tag 8 people and post their names
Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
Did you know:
1. I work at a prison.
2. I went through a 4 year apprenticeship at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard. I graduated and became a Marine Machinery Mechanic. I repaired valves on submarines.('86-'93)
3. People at work think I have weird eating habits. I read labels ok? Something wrong with that?? Or could it be that I have an apple and a Slimfast for lunch most every day? (on days that I don't eat prison food)
4. I'm always cold!
5. I have a sister who is 13 years older than me and a niece who is only 7 years younger than me.
6. When we were children, I accidentally cut my brother's finger in half with a pair of hedge clippers. (it was stitched back together, but he has an awful scar!)
7. I can't swim.
8. I love diet Dr. Pepper.

Wow! Enjoyed getting to know you better! I am addicted to Dr. Pepper, (can't drink diet). I also cannot swim and my DH works at a prison. lol

Glad your family liked the Salsa Chicken. It's been a winner everytime here too.

Thanks for letting me know you liked it. :-)

I did not know you worked in a prison! I'm always cold, too. I learned how to swim 3 yrs ago at age 36! I'd always wanted to learn and regretted not taking swim lessons as a kid. So I did it as an adult. :)
