I don’t know that I’m particularly prolific, but thanks to Freda at Freda’s Voice for passing this one along.

Freda and Kim both passed the Picasso award on to me, too. For this one, I’m supposed to share 7 things about myself.

I have my own bowling ball, but haven’t been bowling for probably a year.

I love taking photos and usually have my camera with me.

I’m not a big fan of nature. I need regular “concrete breaks.”

I only ride roller coasters that don’t go higher than the tree line.

I hate talking on the phone. I much prefer e-mail or texting.

I don’t like to eat outside. I do picnics and barbecues when I have to, but I’d much rather eat inside.

I’ve made a rule at our house – no more dead animals allowed.
