Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs 7 facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and need to read your blog.
The 7 Facts:
1. I’ve lived in 6 states: New York, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri, Kentucky and California.
2. I horseback rode from the ages of 10-17–English saddle, dressage, Morgan horses. I’d like to ride again even though I was thrown by a quarter horse into a metal gate and broke my right shoulder blade when I was 34.
3. I’m an avid mystery reader, but a very, very fussy one, too. I don’t like to be able to figure the mystery out. Raymond Chandler, Robert van Gulik, Susanna Gregory, Rex Stout, and Candace Robb are my favorite mystery authors.
4. I married M when I was 35 and he was 2 weeks from turning 30. I had lived alone for 9 years before that. It was a big adjustment but very much worth it. Most people think M is older than I am, a fact I am rather fond of–M not so much.
5. I have one sibling, my younger brother, who I call Bunky. He calls me Wuzzie. No one else calls us by those nicknames.
6. I’ve never had a cavity. I don’t floss either, and my dentist told me I really didn’t need to, but she’d like me to anyway on general principles.
7. I love to drive unless I have to look for a parking space. When we’re together M only drives if I don’t want to. Heavy traffic doesn’t bother me.
And now that Mother’s Day is past, I have to show you what I sent my mom because it all started with a great etsy find.

The Laurel Birch tapestry tote bag is from Janine King’s etsy shop. It’s not knitting specific, but Mom does a lot of stuff, so a general zippered tote works for her. The workmanship is top notch. I was extremely pleased with the quality and price of the bag. Mom has been knitting socks from the same free Lion Brand pattern for three years, so I thought she might like a few more options hence the copy of Sensational Knitted Socks, and it seemed unsporting to send a book on knitting socks without sending sock yarn. Mom seems pleased. My work is done.
