Me...ffom A to Z.

I got this cute idea from Diane Estrella over at She does great book reviews, especially for young people, has handy tips, and good giveaways. Diane encouraged us to have fun with this.

A. age: 64

B. baked goods: coconut cream pie

C. Chore you hate: I hate cleaning that plastic shower of mine. Scrub, scrub, scrub - yuck.

D. Dogs. I had a cute mixed breed named Buffy when I was a little girl. Then we got an ugly dog names Irving. Now we have no dogs.

E. Essential start to your day: I always make my bed. First chore, always.

F. Favorite color: blue, blue, and oh um blue.

G. Gold or Silver: I like gold in the winter and silver in the summer.

H. Height: 5'2". I'm too short to get the coffee cups in most cupboards.

I. Instruments you play. I used to play piano. My students loved my marches. They were just chords mixed up.

J. Job. I take care of my adorable grandson, Ty.

K. Kids. Joseph and wife Sandra, 35, Benjamin 31 and his wife Rebekah 30, Dawn 27 and her husband Dave 36, and grandson Ty 2.

L. Live. I like in Michigan. I was born in Ohio.

M. Mother. Lillian

N. Nickname. Never had a nickname until recently. I can be Nan or Nance.

O. Overnight hospital stays. I've had three - one for each of my childdren.

P. Pet peeve. The worst one - not putting paper etc in the garbace cans. I also hate spitting.

Q. Quote. "This is the hour of the Shire-folk, when they arise from their quiet fields to shake the towers and counsels of the Great. Who of all the Wise could have forseen it?" from The Lord Of The Rings, The Fellowship Of The Ring. by J.R.R.Tolkien. That book has so many great quotes. It was hard to choose just one.

R. Right or left? Right

S. Siblings. An older sister and a younger sister.

T. Time you wake up. I wake at 6:30 to work, 9:00 on off days, and 8:30 for church.

U. University you attended. Bowling Green State University - that's in Ohio.

V. Vegetable you dislike. I dislike very much asparagus, broccoli (cooked), brussel sprouts, and peppers, all kinds.

W. What makes you late? I am almost never late. I am almost at least 10 minutes early. If I am late it is because I had to do a new activity beforehand and didn't know how long it would take. I think it is rude to be late.

X. X-rays. Just had a chest X-ray. I don't like them very much. Do you?

Y. Yummy food. Well, I love pizza, fries, and mac and cheese. Also, love, love, love corn on the cob. (I never eat it anywhere except at home because it's too messy and gets in my teeth.)

Z. Zoo animal favorite. My favorite is the bird house. I can make bird noises and once startled the birds at the Toledo zoo with my fine initation.

Now you know me from A to Z. Have a great day.


  1. Nancy, I'm so glad I dropped in! I feel like I "know you" now! I lived in Archbold for several years (my parents still live there). My husband also directed a camp near Kalamazoo, so we've lived in and loved MI, too.

    Like you we have three married children, I play the piano, am usually early (seldom late), and really like pizza - Pizza Hut, pan, taco is our favorite.

    Not quite "A-Z" but just a little about me :)

  2. These are always interesting! :) Thanks for sharing!

  3. Rebecca - It seems that we have several things in common. So glad to find a like-minded person.

    Andy - I have always loved little interactive things. Thanks for your comment.

  4. Oh, I love this! It was fun getting to know you better, and now I have a new idea for a blog post! Please pop over next Friday the 2nd and see my list!


  5. Hi Nancy -

    I love it that you can imitate birds and even fooled them!

    Do we have to use the same categories or can we make up our own?

    Susan :)

  6. Susan - There were no rules listed. I'd say, do whatever you want for your letter. I changed a few where I liked my subfect better for that letter.

  7. That was fun, Nancy! And I'm even shorter than you are! I've hopped on counters in order to reach things on the top shelf for as long as I can remember. Ha, ha!
