17 Fun Facts About Me for 2017

Happy New Year!

These fun fact lists are becoming a tradition here (see my lists for 2015 and 2016), so I couldn't resist a new one for 2017!

1.  My 3 core beliefs:  Christianity, pet rescue, vegetarianism.
2.  I love soul food.
3.  I love classic country music:  Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson . . .
4.  I do a good Wicked Witch of the West imitation.
5.  I went on my first camping trip at 6 months old.
6.  No scary movies, books, or tv shows for me;  they give me bad dreams!
7.  However, I love a good mystery.  Favorites include cozy mysteries, the Masterpiece Mystery! series, Columbo, and of course Nancy Drew.
8.  When I first learned to drive, I failed the driving test (twice!) because I couldn't parallel park.  Ironically, I have lived my entire adult life in the city with on-street parking.  Now I am a parallel parking pro!
9.  I love classic Disney.  My favorite animated Disney movie is Lady and the Tramp.  My favorite live action Disney is The Ugly Dachshund (of course!).
10.  I love polka dots!
11.  My favorite colors to wear:  green, red, pink.
12.  I prefer milk chocolate.
13.  I love cafeterias - the more old fashioned, the better.
14.  I don't like hats (never have!) but love to wear hoodies. 

15.  Tulips are my favorite flowers.

16.  I love 1950's - 1960's instrumental pop songs.
17.  I love trains!  I would love to take a long trip on Amtrak.

I failed my driving test the first time because I ran a stop sign...in my tiny little hometown...one that I was familiar with haha then I couldn't parallel park because I was too busy crying. It was bad. But I passed the second time!
