Five Things Friday

Here we are again...5 Things Friday. I'm sure it's what you're waited for all week! LOL!

1. In my whole life, I have only not had a pet for about two years, just after my Shetland Sheepdog Fluffy passed away. When I was born we had a large dog named Panda Bear Bruce Spruce, then a black outdoor cat named Cinder. For a few years we had a husky named Nikita and when we gave him away, we adopted a Shetland Sheepdog named Fluffy. A friend of my mom's passed away and we inherited her cat George. After Fluffy passed, I didn't want another pet, it was too painful. Then I adopted Higgy and Pooka. When they were eight, hubby and I adopted Elizabeth. When Pooka passed away in 2013, we adopted Domo and Strax.

2. I do not eat chicken, ham, steak, pork, or mushrooms. When I was a child, my mother ate chicken almost every meal for a month. I decided when I was old enough to not eat it again. It's been years since I've had it. Ham and pork are too salty for me. I feel like all I'm eating is salt. I used to eat steak, but one too many bites into gristle made me not like it anymore. Mushrooms = fungus.

3. My dad was in the Army and the Coast Guard. He was 14 years older than my mom and was a stay-at-home dad. It was an unusual up-bringing. LOL!

4. I have three favorite Disney characters - Cinderella, Eeyore, and Stitch from Lilo and Stitch. I realized they are all blue. Odd?

5. I used to watch M*A*S*H* and Hogan's Hero's with my parents as a kid and they are still some of my all-time favorite t.v. shows.

What's something interesting about you? :-)


  1. Always love a fun fact post! My dad is 13 years older than my mom. I never really felt the age difference since my dad was actually the more active one.

    1. Oh that's funny! It's fun to hear others parents were similar. Other than my dad looked older, I didn't notice a huge difference either. :)
