Last week, or was it the week before, I was TAGGED. My wife has since given up on me, convinced I will not follow up as directed. But, I am a thoughtful, deliberate man and need to think things out very carefully before I respond to the challenge of revealing 5 things about myself, and then tagging five other bloggers.

1. I was 6’2” tall before I married Patience. ( I am now 5’ 5”)

2. I can milk a cow

3. I really am the friggin polyanna my wife calls me.

4. I am an armchair model railroader

5. At one time I wanted to be saint. Honest. Or a minstrel.

Now, I have to tag 5 other bloggers. With apologies, I submit:

I like you better now than when you were 6'2".

dog face girls said...

Ha, 6'2"..Is that vertically or horizontally??

HA! These are great, Bill. I love #3!

By the way...your earlier works are just beautiful...I especially like the second one down.

I was tagged last week and now I'd love to see a chart similar to a "who begat who" and we'd have a list of wonderful blogs to explore.

And you say that I am delightful! The only reason that you said that you can milk a cow is because I did! Cheaty Pants! That's a Patience word. Love the post. VC

I will have you know that we had a family cow on our farm, and one of my daily chores was to milk the cow. I am quite an accomplished milker, like riding a bike, it is a skill you never lose.

So....there are at least 2 milkers on the 800 block of madison St.!!

That's hilarious. I can't milk a cow. I have an uncle who is a bona fide dairy farmer, though -- so I'm close. ;-D
I've been too busy to check e-mail or anything else lately until tonight! How fun to be tagged -- I'll have to think of 5 interesting things by Saturday!
I love the recent postings, too. Your work is really wonderful; one of these days we're going to have to make our way to Paducah and find the gallery where you exhibit, as I imagine your paintings are even more impressive in person.
