Ok, so who can I tag? 8 things meme

1- Like Gail at Sweet Home and Garden Chicago , who tagged me, I am a middle child too, and the bossiest of the three of us, and got into the most trouble as a small child, just ask my little sis!

2-I am a leftie, and have 3 of my 5 children who are also lefties. And my sis. And my uncle, but no one else in the family is a leftie.

3-I love to sew, and I’ve sewn for myself through high school and my married life. I was in 4-H as a child, and really do enjoy the creativity of sewing. The sad thing is, I’m not that good at it, for the amount of experience that I have.

4-Because I love gardening, I took the master gardener class last year. I learned a lot, mostly about what I don’t know, and how much more I have to learn.

5-I love genealogy and old pictures. Here is a wonderful picture of the Horner family, the father(James McGordon Horner)is a Civil War veteran. My great-grandmother is the young woman on the far left.

6-I collect recipes – in a pile. I have some unreasonable hope that I will use them all, or organize them or something. Hard to let go of this particular pile o’clutter.

7-I didn’t go to kindergarten. Our family lived on a farm, and our school district charge for kindergarten, so my older brother nor I went.

8-I am the founding member of a defunct rock band called ‘the Renegade Moms of Funk’ –actually, we’ve never had a rehearsal..
This is how ‘the band’ came about – I was tired of listening to the loud music my son had on the car radio, so I decided to tease him about the music, and a group called the Renegade Band (I think) of Funk were yelling away at the time, so I told him I was starting my own group. He is a good sport, and is our manager, still today.

Thanks, Muum for revealing the many interesting things about yourself that we didn't know beforehand.

My firstborn daughter is a leftie and a very gifted artist.

We middle kids gotta stick together !

A band...I love it!! You know, it's stuff like that that let our kids know that there's a "real person" under that Mom persona. LOL.

I have a pile of recipes just like yours! Actually, I have many smaller piles... and some of them are mixed in with things like rooms painted colors I would like to use someday, etc. I go through them periodically and throw out the ones I've decided I will never try, and resolve to try a few of the best-sounding ones, but it never happens.

I'll happily play along with your meme, but it will take me a while to get to it--it will probably be next Monday or Tuesday until I will have much time to sit at the computer.

By the way, I bet that your son was listening to Rage Against the Machine... lol. They have a song called "Renegades of Funk!" :)
