Things you don't know


  • My nose has been broken 3 times. The first time, I was 3, my Mom was in the hospital for surgery, and I was staying with friends.

  • I'm a book snob, I read too many books to waste my time on the plot-less or poorly written. I'd give you examples, famous ones, but I try to keep this positive.

  • I'm also a hair snob. I hate when older men and women, dye their hair. As we age our faces, and other parts, soften; and the harsh colors of black, dark brown, bright red, etc. just do nothing to enhance our beauty.

  • I'm allergic to cats. I like all animals, to varying degrees, so this is too bad.

  • Most of my pets have been dogs, but we have also owned a rabbit, a tortoise, mice, parrots, love birds, finches, and many fish.

  • I have very few regrets, one is I've never been to Europe.

  • I've traveled to all the States, many, multiple times, except Alaska. We may do that soon.

  • I've only lived in Southern California, my entire life; in reverse order, the last 10 years in Murrieta, 30 years in Long Beach, 4 years of apartment living, Paramount, Bell Gardens Downey - when newly married, 19 years in Long Beach before I was married.

  • I remember most of my addresses: 2035, 6618, 8141, 3226, 40612.

  • I use very colorful language on a regular basis; never at work, except in the backroom.

  • My favorite food is Mexican, I do live in Southern California, after all, and Japanese food, not sushi. At home I like simple fare, and soups are a year round favorite.

  • My first job, I was a bookkeeper in a bank. This was in the olden days, 1962. None of the checks we posted to customers accounts had account numbers, names or any other ID on them. We sorted and posted by signature alone.

  • I'm frequently asked if I'm a librarian, or a retired librarian, this has been going on for 40 years. I don't know why. I know lots of librarians, and I don't look like any of them.

  • For 10 years I rode Harleys, I didn't drive them, I rode in the co-pilot position. We rode every weekend, weather permitting, year round. I loved it. This was before helmet laws. During this time, I never rode with a helmet.

I'm a bit of a book snob too. We need to go eat some Mexican food and discuss good titles.

I tried coloring my hair for a few months this year and have given up on it. I'm just going to embrace the gray.

How wonderful that you've been to 49 states. Seeing all 50 is a goal of mine that I hope to reach at some point. But, it's a nice goal to have and stretch out over many years.

I tend to agree. But it's still hard for me to see the grays.
