I've been tagged by my friend here goes!
A: The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
B: Each player answers the questions about themselves.
C: At the end of the post, the player then tag 3 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
10 years ago: I was living in an apartment in Ames, had just moved from Raleigh, NC. OMG we've been in IA for 10 years!!!
Things on my to-do list today: Get PCDART (the software I support for the company I work for) interfacing with Boumetrix-their new version. Drive home from NW IA on snowy ice packed roads! (update-almost got the software working-figured out the problem. Didn't make it home, spending another night at Spencer, IA)
What I would do if I were suddenly made a billionaire: Share some, pay off our mortgage, invest for life then travel.
3 of my bad habits: ignoring household chores, piling up mail/magazines, waiting till the end of the year to backup backup backup digital photos.
3 places I have lived: Triple C Ranch, Norwood, MO, Raleigh, NC, Slater, IA
5 jobs that I have had: Newspaper graphic artist, Folk Art fine artist, DHI Technician, Digital Designer, DRMS Computer Support.
5 things people don't know about me: I've had Digital Scrapbook Layouts, Photographs, and original "traditional" artwork published in print magazines or books. I had a job I don't include on my resume, I was a "roadie" for a very good friend who was a, shall we say, topless dancer. I went to college in Colorado (but did not graduate from there, that was MU). I can't wait to trade my car for something with no drivetrain rattles. I have my pilots license, with IFR rating (instrument flight rules-clouds and stuff-it's the "stuff" that you worry about!!)
I'm tagging my friend Cassie, who just started her blog. Everyone else i might tag already has been!!!

Fonda, Fonda, Fonda! This was a most informative post!! I had no idea you could fly, nor did I know you're not from Iowa! Now, you and I share the same "bad" habits...I could have definitely listed the ones you did! Great post! Thanks for stopping by my blog...gotta run...Lily's headed back to the dollhouse! :-) Janet

Spencer, IA... Do you remember that your grandmother Daisy lived there? And it's not far from your Dad's birthplace, Royal? What goes around comes around. Love ya, Ma

Henrietta said...

Don't forget that you have developed and printed black & white film, grew up on horseback, and have exhibited and won prizes in local art shows. Who cares about housework. Ma

Fonda said...

Yeah, I remember that Dad's family was from Spencer area. I was going to go to Royal to visit the cemetery, was only 7 miles away, but decided roads were too crappy/it was too cold, etc. Maybe we will come back in the summer when it's warmer!!!

I agree with your mom...who cares about housework, lol:) Great answers to the questions! That's neat that you can fly, and that you are a bona fide digital designer.
