I was picked for Meme

Hi I was picked for a Meme by Jane who is a neighbor of mine I met in blog land...She lives about 50 miles from me and is so much fun meeting people on the Internet with the same interests as myself.

Here are the rules...

If you want to play, great! If you don't that's great! No obligations here, just trying to have fun, sooooo.....1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.Stuff you may (or maybe not) want to know about meme -

Here are the people I pick to do it...

Cheryl at Quilting Hollow
Kris at Gardens by the Lake
Stephanie at Greenie Gardens
Nicole at Diary of a Busy Mom
Nan at Displaced Yooper
Mel at Covered Porches and Wooden Screen Doors
Angie at The Thread Catcher

Here are 7 things you may not know about me....

I love my Family.....even when they don't want to be loved.

I have had so many jobs..including mail carrier, waitress, clothing store clerk, cook in a nursing home, restaurant manager, I worked in the township and mowed lawns and picked up garbage, I tested snow blowers at the Houghton County Airport for Tecumseh Engines 12 hours a day for 4 weeks one winter, I owned a Antique Shop and ran Estate Sales, I worked for the University of Michigan doing surveys and now I work for the Department of Commerce and do survey work. Wow I am I nuts or what?????

I collect fabric! and it looks like I may also collect sewing machines.

I love to cook and have taken french cooking lessons.

I hate why in the heck do I live in the UP???....You got me but I guess this is where my parents brought me and this is where I am.

I love to play poker and am pretty good at it.

I love to blog..when I have time and love to read other peoples blogs.

Thanks for stopping by...Toni

Testing snowblowers at the Houghton County Airport?? That would not be a job for the faint at heart LOL! Thanks for sharing Toni... What project are you working on this week?

This was a fun list! You've had some interesting jobs. I get an occasional cooking lesson from my French teacher - but mostly simple, everyday fare.

Thanks for tagging me - I did this meme over the summer and was tagged again a month or so ago. I'll give it some thought, and if I manage to come up with something I'll let you know! (My life just doesn't seem to be all that interesting - lol)
