7 unusual things about myself:
1. I won an egg decorating contest in 3rd grade. The prize was a silver dollar. My egg's hair was made from turquoise feathers cut off of a feather duster.
2. My husband and I have known each other since we were 12.
3. I have studied 5 languages: French, Swedish, Hebrew, Farsi, and Spanish. But, only ever dreamt in one of them.
4. I spent spring break of 1978 in Afghanistan.
5. While working one week on a ranch in Dove Creek, Colorado (with no plumbing or electricity) I learned to lasso, spent most of one day riding through drought-dry plains and across a river rounding up escaped cattle, and participated in cattle branding and castration.
6. I bake great pies.
7. My least favorite jobs have been: ironing 6 hours /day, operating a cherry picker to pick the apples from the tops of trees, washing the inside, back windows of cars.
