I was tagged by Dana who I’m sure is pointing and laughing!!!!! LOL
Each person posts the rules before their lists, then lists 8 things about themselves. At the end of the post that person lists 8 other people they want to tag, then visits each of their sites leaving a comment that they have been tagged & to come to your space & read the post so they will know what to do.
Ok I have no rules, just list 8 things about yourself, the more embarassing the better cuz I love pointing and laughing at the expense of others.
Dammit!!! OK! These might not be all that funny!
1. Born and raised in South Jersey near Philadelphia
2. My High School got so crowded that we went to double-sessions. The next year they turned into two High schools! Triton Red and Blue!! Of course, I was Red and sister was Blue!! Made my Mom crazy!! I went to school at Noon and had Basketball practice at 6:00 PM!! They chose who would be in which school in alphabetical order!! Our Marching Band was 17 people……. Mostly Clarinets!! The other school!! 150!!
We lost out first ever Football game 72 to ZERO!! But our Basketball team went to the State Finals and WON!! OK… That was long!!
3. After High School I was drafted (1966) because the Government thought my Senior trip should be spent in Vietmam!!
4. I was initally assigned to the Battleship New Jersey!! That sucker did some damage!! 2000 lb shells (Volkswagen size!!) fired 36 miles and going thru 40 feet of reinforced concrete before exploding!! We once destroyed a mountain!!
5. I was then assisigned to a River (Swift) boat as a machine gunner. BAD!!! Saw LOTS of friends die…….. A few in my arms!
6. When I arrived home?? (New Mexico), we were pelted with spit and feces!! And words like ‘Baby Killers’!! NICW
7. I moved to Long Beach, CA. I had already played the Trombone, so I worked my way around and joined a few bands!! FUN!! Mostly Jazz and Rock.
Almost done here!! LOL
8. Got Throat Cancer in 1986 and lost my vocal cords! Speech therapy ( Esophogeal Speech) (sic) got my voice back!! I worked for 25 years after that as an account!
MMMMMMM… Am I done????? Is Dana Happy?????
I think just about everyone has been tagged but I’m tagging Julie, Becca and Silly Me!!
