Blog Hopping Adventure!

Blog Hopping Tuesday!

What a fun idea! I have a great time poking around on different blogs and this got me motivated to join in the fun! Now gotta see if I can do it right!

Three things you don't know about me is the theme of this blog hop so . . . how far back can I go with mystery things nobody would know about .. hmmmm

1. I flew on an airplane for the first time when I was 10 ~ all by myself ~ leaving Hartford and going to Ft. Ligonier PA to see my best childhood friend, Deneb. Had a great time there - first time in my life I'd ever stayed at a mansion with a huge pool, a pond, guesthouse, dumb waiter and maid. I learned to ride a horse that summer, Tatters .. a gentle critter that didn't mind a scared kid up on his back and he took me all over the place ~ a very memorable summer.

2. I learned to snow ski at Mt Sunapee NH in 9th grade (or thereabouts) with my parents, brother and youngest sister. We had a ball .. lessons consisted of learning the 'snow plow' stop and then we graduated to riding up the mountain (hill) on the J Bar .. what a hoot! Didn't know I was just supposed to stand there and let it just gently slide me up the hill .. nope .. thought we were supposed to sit on it .. yeah .. I had to go first .. I was the guinea pig .. thunk .. down I went! When we finally got all of us to the top .. we were ready .. doing great .. yep .. ready, set, GO ... then Dad slid across the back of my skis and down we tumbled .. took several tries but we got it!

3. I won $1000.00 at a casino in Las Vegas due to a (yuk) cockroach! Had no idea how to play video poker but it looked like all I had to do was match colors or suits or something so why not .. til a nasty old roach crawled across the screen .. forget that! Moved to another machine .. put my token in .. matched the colors .. all is good .. Then I went to put another token in and nothing .. I was not a happy camper. All of a sudden this lady came over with lights blinking etc .. LOL .. the reason it wouldn't take my token was I'd won $1000.00! Yeehah!

LOL! I had a hard time trying to think of three things that nobody would know .. and even now don't know if I managed to do it! Can't tell secrets!! Not that I have any .. nope, not me!

So posting this and going to see what happens next ..
