Cathy Chats,  Get To Know Me (g2km)

g2km part 3: Questions 41-50 #CathyChats

 

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! How are y’all doing this morning? Last week, I changed themes on my site. Somethings need a bit of tweaking which I’m working on. Meanwhile, track two on the above Flatt Lonesome playlist crossed my ears in recent months and having enjoyed it decided to share it along with 25 other tunes found on YouTube. I’m happy you joined me this morning for another chance to get to know me a little better!

41. What is your favorite childhood memory? I don’t know that I have a favorite childhood memory but I do recall some high points from my youth. I vividly recall sitting by the window in my grandparents’ upstairs living room watching for my parents to bring home my baby brother. I was five years old. Another time, I recall grandma waking me in the wee hours to tell me the good news I had a little sister. I was 9 1/2 years old. These memories always make me smile.

42. What is your favorite way to pastime? Other than watching movies, I’d say sketching.

43. What is your favorite snack? Popcorn but it hurts my tummy sometimes. πŸ™

44. What is your favorite sport? To watch, football; to play, tennis.

45. What is something you are gifted at? This is tough. I don’t consider myself especially talented in anything but I have potential. My skill sets need a lot of polishing. I like to think someday I can say I’m a gifted artist or photographer or both.

46. What is something you look(ed) for in a partner? I’ve known DH all my life. Before we started dating I just him as my best friend’s brother’s friend. So, I really didn’t know him. The summer of 1976 after I became a Christian, my uncle and aunt encouraged me to pray for my future mate. My prayer was for God to lead me to a good guy who’s heart belonged to Him.Β  Within a few months, DH asked me out and the rest is herstory! πŸ˜‰

47. What is something you wish you were gifted at doing? Drawing for sure.

48. Are you a fan of any sports team? At first I thought no but then I thought yeah, I’m a fan of UT football. Other than that not really. When Peyton Manning played for the Broncos then I was a fan but with all this craziness going on in NFL then when I watch I ALWAYS root for the team who has the least offenders (those who take a knee during the National Anthem).

49. Are you a dog person or cat person? I don’t have any pets but I’m partial to both but at one time I would’ve picked a cat over a dog anyday. Now, I can go either way.

50. At what age did you go on your first date? My first date was to a church hosted Valentine’s Day party. I was barely 13. The boy was almost four years older than me. We went study for more than a year but he broke heart and so I had to dump him. I believe that was supposed to happen so I’d be free to date DH at the appointed time. God has a plan! πŸ˜‰

Beginning in March I am going to do a g2km post every other week and on the off week’s throw out a random question or topic for y’all to grab. I think I will create a page to post future Cathy Chat prompts.Β  How does that sound?Β 

I’m linking up taking a HOT coffee break with Stacy Uncorked and Eugenia @BrewNSpew this morning and you’re invited to come with and let me remind you to visit again tomorrow for not-so Wordless Wednesday.

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.

    Popcorn sometimes hurts my tummy, too! I noticed you said UT football. I’m from Texas! But I don’t really keep up with college football. Glad you came over to my blog. I enjoyed getting to know you better.

      Myke,

      Mewsic is a great way to pass time. Baseball is one of those sports I played and watched as a kid but as an adult it’s one of my least favorite sports. Isn’t that strange? I can’t stare without blinking. I’m hopeless at doing this for more than a few seconds at a time. Your response to something you look for ina partner cracked me up. lol I’d like to learn how to play a guitar but I have small hands. Just so you know, I think you did a fantastic job answering these questions. Bravo! Thanks for popping by!

      Mimi,

      Dogs do require walking. I would not like having to do that, especially in the winter. I think if we had a nice large fenced property with a garage for animals to retreat to when it’s cold then that would be nice. I can’t see keeping one in the home, especially big dogs.
