ABC Award


I am excited because I have gotten another award! This one is from my friend Cheryl at THE FARMER'S DAUGHTER and it is the ABC award, for awesome blog content. Cheryl has a great blog full of wonderful photos of nature, animals, and the beauty around her, you never know what you might find there, but it is always interesting! To accept this award, I have to list 26 things about myself in alphabetical order, so here it is:

A - Angry Birds!
B - I saw The Beatles in person! Now I am a birdwatcher
C - I used to work at Children's Hospital National Medical Center
D - I am a Deacon
E - I am NOT an early bird!
F-  I am allergic to felines
G - I have had to wear glasses since I was 9 years old
H - I take two medications for high blood pressure
I - I have a new iPad!
J - Jesus is my lord and master
K - When Martin Luther King was assassinated, I was working in Washington D.C. when it was burned down in the riots and had to drive to work through it every day. We feared for our lives.
L - We have a big lilac bush outside our kitchen door
M - I live in the mountains
N - I am a neat freak
O - I am an only child
P - Love photography!
Q - I am very quizzical, and it has gotten me into trouble
R - Both of my rotator cuffs are torn
S - Scared silly of spiders!!!
T - I grow a double toenail!
U - I once had an accident trying to put my underpants on and had to to to the E.R. The doctors laughed themselves silly.
V - I live in Virginia and love it.
W - When I was a teenager, I wrecked my mom's favorite car and totaled it. She never had another one as good.
X - I loved The X Files!
Y - One of my favorite words is yes
Z - Favorite animal at the zoo was zebras

Now I am supposed to pass this on to ten other bloggers, but you are all so wonderful that I can't choose! Any of my followers can feel free to take it, just post the list and chose ten more people. Here's another award that I'm working on getting at an alarming rate.

That was interesting! Congrats on your award! I should really pick up the idea as I really don't know what to write about any more, lol! What did you do at the Children's Hospital? I worked in one too, Medical Records and then Pathology - that's eons ago now!
Have a blessed Sunday!

Wow, I'm impressed with your alphabet list. You got a lot of interesting info into it. Doing long lists like that always tends to make my head go blank and I get stuck on the task forever. Just now is certainly not a good time so I think I'll skip it... But you're truly worthy of that award!!!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Oh I love this challenge to go along with the award. ABC....excellent. I learned so much this way. Your "B"...seeing the Beatles in person/live musta been a thrill of a lifetime. Your "H"...me too. Your "K" was scary, even as a memory!! Your "Q" reminds me of the time you walked up to a door and ended up buying the lawn sculpture [I think it was a rooster?] Your "T"...I have no idea what that means, a double toenail? The "U"...I'm glad you didn't expand on that one. rofl And, last...now I know your favorite zoo animal.

Rhonda said...

Okay, the MOST is a double toenail? You mean like layer on top of layer? and YOU SAW THE BEATLES? ...TOO COOL....enjoyed your list....and congrats on your award....I have so many excellent followers that I just cannot pick and choose for they all deserve awards.....so I do not like you pass them out any longer....all are special to me....I am with you on loving Photography ....just love it...

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Very interesting tidbits of info about your life. I have chosen not to participate in awards and memes,so thanks,but no thanks.You obviously are enjoying them and I know you deserve every award you get.

Sarah (Nikki) said...

aww Ginny...I love this list and learning about you. You saw the Beatles...or the beetles? lol.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Love that challenge, Ginny.. I knew most of those things about you --but certainly didn't know about the double toenail... Did you have it taken off? Does the 2nd one grow back? OR--do you just keep two tonails on that toe??? I've never heard of that.....

Hope you have a blessed Sunday.
Hugs,
Betsy

Congrats on your award Ginny! I love learning more about you! You and I are both an only child. I have a step-sister, but we didn't grow up together. I'm not a morning person. I just do it because I have to! :) My grandfather was from VA. I'm glad you're feeling better. :)
Have a great week!

Hi Ginny, I stopped in from Mildred's Maple Lane blog and had fun reading both your A to Z lists. Where do you live in VA? We are here too on the VA eastern shore, after moving from NJ and next to NH. I too am a Bearles fan, but like early mornings.

Darlene said...
