Our recent trip to Sonora to see our son and family.
I'm not even sure what this is all about but I have been tagged by Judith Nijholt-Strong, my co-moderator at Wet Canvas. Her blog is really a joy to visit as her creative way of writing through her cats, is most enjoyable. She is also and incredible artist, potter, and wonderful person to moderate a forum with, even if she did tag me.

I have been informed by Judy that I have to tell you seven things that you may not know about me. The thing is, my memory won't help me remember what I have said around the forums and blogs and I have probably said too much, so I will give it a try.

1. I used to get up every morning at 5:20 to jog in the park and listen to the crackling of the trees while the birds awoke. Now it is not safe so I do Pilates.

2. My favorite perfume is Escada.

3. I'd give anything to hug a horse but they don't like me.

4. My husband and I were once checking out our well at the ranch and the ground underneath my husband collapsed, he landed on a branch of a huge root with his back to the side of the constructed part of the well and was able to push himself back up with just his heals and back. I could not reach for him because the earth between us had caved in.

5. My mother was forty when I was born.

6. I don't know where I really belong. I have equal amounts of French, Spanish, German and English blood, I live in Mexico and was born in the US.

7.When I was about 17 I saw this incredible good looking guy cross the street one day in this city, and was followed by him everyday for one month before he said a word to me. He has been my husband for 41 years.

Well now I believe I have to Tag some people but I'm afraid I can only Tag four and be sure they will forgive me if they don't want to play.

Robin Neudorfer- and incredible versatile artist and friend that excells and any art she tries.

Judi Lynch- our Moderator in the Drawing and Sketching forum at Wet Canvas, one of the first real friends I have had here and a superb graphite artist.

Billie Craine- my dear Billie, so much fun to chat with and a superb Pastelist and Watercolor artist.
Pilan - a great Plein Air artist and valuable friend with a huge heart who has been a little under the weather but this might perk her up a little and hope she has time to play. She recently came all the way to San Luis to meet me.

Its so interesting to read the little pieces of people's lives that you would not ordinarily know about in general conversation.

Lovely reading, Mary, but oh damn! I was about to tag YOU.

Never mind ... enjoyed your 7. Mine will be up later today.

Cynthia said...

Loved learning a little bit more about you! The photograph and landscape at the top is amazing!

Pilan said...

ha ha ha!! I love this. What wonderful things to learn about one another. Now that I am almost back to feeling like I am alive, maybe I can figure out what tag means. I hope you and hubby had a wonderful time visiting your son and family.

Mary said...

Thank you Jeanette, Lesley, Cynthia and Pilan. Yes, this is a fun game and a way to visit other blogs that you might have not seen otherwise.

Anita, I'm sorry but I didn't think that while on your vacation you would want to be tagged. :)
