My turn

Monica (her link is to the right)tagged me, I'll try to tag 3 others, but I think most have been tagged already.
The rules:

1) Link to the person who tagged you (see above).

2) Post the rules.

3) Share six non-important things / habits / quirks about yourself.

4) Tag at least three people.

5) Make sure the people you tagged KNOW you tagged them by commenting what you did.

Six non-important things about me:

1) I have a penpal that lives 2 hours away from me. (It was 3 & 4 hours away during high school & then college.) I met Justina in the 6th grade, in the 10th grade her family moved away & we started writing each other. This was before the internet, so we hand-wrote everything. Now we still hand write about 80% of our letters, the rest are written in Word, but still mailed. We rarely call each other, but do email often & get together maybe 2X a year.

2)I have a huge family. My grandparents had 9 kids, 2 sets of twins. My grandfather was quoted "When they started coming out in two's, I knew it was time to stop." My grandparents had 25 grandchildren & many many more great-grandchildren. There majority of us grew up in a 10 mile radius of each other. (No we're not inbred.) As my generation has grown up, gone off to college, married, ran from the law, whatever, we've become spread out, but now DH & I have decided to return to the area. Heaven help us.

3)I bake a damn fine buttermilk pie.

4)I was in 4-H from the 4th grade to the 10th grade. I raised pigs. I wanted to raise lambs, they were cuter & didn't stink as much.

5)I love puns, any kind of word play. Speaking of farm animals, I used to own a cow. After the cow had a calf, I changed its name to Decalf because it had been 'de-calf-inated' HA! I kill me!

6)I'm obsessed with Hawaii. After spending 10 beautiful, healing, spiritual days there in January 2007, I can't wait to go back.

OK, I looked & everyone I wanted to tag has already been tagged.

OK so I have no idea what a buttermilk pie is but I'm going to google it now and find out.

I love that you have a pen pal that lives so close but you still write. It's so nice to receive proper mail rather than bills all the time.

We had lambs which my brother and I raised. They were called Mint and Sauce. I know not funny.

Are you sure you're not inbred? Ha!

Also, I live the Decalf thing. Too funny!

And, I know you're packing, but I'd like the recipe for your buttermilk pie. I sampled a really good one at Central Market a couple months ago, but the pie was $25! Craziness. Needless to say, I did not buy it.

Coggy said...

OK so I think your buttermilk pie is very similar to what we call an egg custard. Which I love.

Yes Buttermilk pie is a custard-style pie. YUM!!

Our pigs had names like Bacon, Ham, Pork Chops.
