The Blog


I have won the "Versatile Blogger Award" thanks to treebytheriver at http://treebytheriverblog.blogspot.com/. According to the rules, I have to regift this award to seven others, and I need to say seven things about myself.

About self:
1. I have two amazing daughters. One is a specialist in pediatric hematology/oncology. The other is just finishing a doctorate in clinical psychology.
2. I can't swim in spite of years of lessons, private and group. Well, that's not quite right. I can swim but only as far as I can hold my breath. I could never get the rhythm of the breathing/stroking thing. It never stopped me from boating or surfing though.
3. If I could live on cheese, olives, bread, and wine only, I would.
4. I drive a 22-year-old car that has fewer than 40,000 miles on it and gets about 30 miles per gallon.
5. I cannot live without books.
6. Although I have been a professor of psychology for 36 years, I probably should have been an architect or an Egyptologist. And I want to live long enough to see whirled peas.
7. I don't allow a day to pass without laughing and being thankful for life and especially the female portion of it.

Now I have to award this to seven other people.
Here they are but not in any particular order.

1. Strained Consciousness
3. Inside the Mind of a Highly Sensitive Person
4. The Jefferson Tree
5. A Novel Review: My Writings and Military Life
6. Reflections from a Redhead
7. Conversations along the Tiber...

I like these blogs. They always have something worth my time - so please stop by for a visit.

For those I've recognized above, there are rules for the award. Just two. One, say seven things about yourself. Two, share the award with seven other people.
