Thirteen Things about Mitchypoo!
  1. I love pearls. I love them because they come from the sea and are one of God's gifts. I have a set of potato pearls, white cultured pearls, black cultured pearls, a pearl ring and a black pearl drop pendant for my strands.
  2. I cannot say the words "smoked oyster". It just never comes out of my mouth right. I can say them separately, forwards or backwards, but not together.
  3. When I was in elementary school a so called friend and her older sister called the police department and said they were killing me in their kitchen, complete with screaming noises for affect. They scared my poor Grandmother to death showing up looking for me and taking off to try and find me. I was walking home from school and was so embarrassed when they stopped and asked my name and made me get in the car while my friends laughed at me and wondered what I did.
  4. I use to be a high jumper in grade school and was quite good at it. I went to a meet one time and remember seeing Dwight Stones. My coach told me if I continued I could qualify for the women's Olympic team someday. I wish I had continued. My mom just told me that I won the gold medal at said meeting where I saw Dwight Stones and it was my first competition.
  5. I cut the tip of my middle finger off and they were able to reattach it. It happened when I was 12.
  6. I broke my pinky toe by hitting a juniper stump while going to feed the chickens in Oregon one day. I am not kidding! I was really pissed because I had been complaining to the then hubby to remove that stump. He promptly did it after a trip to the emergency room.
  7. I once dated a guy who went by the name Ragnar, he was a Viking re-enactor. There is no accounting for taste. But he was absolutely gorgeous!
  8. I was once a Mary Kay representative...
  9. I have met Kim Novak. The older film star who was in The Birds. She lived in the dinky town I lived in in Oregon. She may still live there. She was married to a retired veterinarian and they were having some work done on their home, of which my hubby was in construction and worked on her home. She was very nice to him and to me when I met her. Her house was beautiful and they had a huge barn and they raised Alpacas. She allowed them to be in her house. She had a regular persona and a Kim Novak persona. She must have been in her mid 60's when I met her and she was still movie star beautiful.
  10. I have seen Prince's purple house in MN. He lived near my cousin.
  11. I was once a contestant in a Beauty Contest. I did not place.
  12. I've always been a care-taker.
  13. I use to have janitors at school hold stray dogs and then I'd tell my parents that they followed me on the way home from school. This entry is courtesy of Mamacita! I have always been a sucker for animals.

I did almost the same thing with my finger when I was 7. And I didn't know Prince had a purple house either. Very cool TT. Happy Friday!

When I was in 7th grade, my friends and I decided to practice blood curdling screams on the playground in case we ever needed to use one in real life. I guess we put the principal into near heart failure,
