13 Weird Things You May NOT Want to Know...

1. I had a pet alligator when I was a kid. It was given to me - we did the best we could, my dad even took it to the vet, who coached us in the care and feeding, but he didn't live long. Another case against exotic pets!

2. My pet hen, Nancy, ran off a stray dog.

3. I have eaten fried grasshoppers.

4. I have shot skeet.

5. I have had my bowling ball land in another lane and screw up a guy's spare. He was NOT
happy. I have also gone halfway down the lane with the ball. I was not happy.

6. I used to be able to throw a mean power shift and get scratch in 2ND gear.

7. I made model airplanes and military ships when I should have been playing with dolls.

8. I never used to be afraid of public speaking.

9. I "smuggled" a bottle of liquor and some cigarettes back over the border from Mexico to the U.S. under my maternity dress . We had a girl from Belgium with us who didn't have her papers with her. DUMB teenagers!!!

10. My CB handle was "Mother Nature."

11. We used to wear hairpieces in the '60's, similar to what the girls wear today. I was crossing a parking lot, the wind whipped up and whoosh! Off went the hairpiece. As I chased it, so did some rotten boys - in their car. Yes, they ran over it. Several times.

12. I have never smoked pot but I would endorse it for medical reasons.

13. I have been on a snipe hunt. He,he,he...I wasn't the hunter!
