Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. - Helen Keller

* I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.

* Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

* People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.

* At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

* Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

8 Things About Me…

One. I don’t like basements, underground parking, caves or any small, closed in places. I don’t like the thought of thousands of pounds of weight above my head just waiting to collapse on me.

Two. I love flying, I want to learn to fly a glider some day, there is nothing like the way you feel when you’re above everything.

Three. I’m not fond of being at the top of tall buildings.

Four. I want to visit every Country in the world: Australia, Egypt, Israel and Scotland in particular.

Five. I don’t like to see kids with no respect. I think that people have too little respect for life in general.

Six. I want to start some sort of operation that will reach the people in THIS country who are without. I don’t mean those able to change their lives on their own, but those stuck in such places as the Appalachian Mountains, with few to no chances of ever leaving or changing the situation they’re in.

Seven. I love nature, anything that can be done out of doors is wonderful!

Eight. This is the first time I have ever been tagged to blog something!

And the winners are...
Queen of the Mayhem, and sadly to say...that's about the only other blogger I know to tag that hasn't already been tagged or that is still posting...if I can think of anyone else, I'll surely add them.

Ooooh, number 1 creeps me out too. I am a basket case in an underground parking garage! :)

How do you feel about driving in tunnels underwater? Everytime we go through the tunnel in Mobile AL, we pretend to hold up the water. It helps to keep me from panicking about what would happen if it would really fall! ICK!

I have done something like this before....but I will come up with something and let you know when it is posted. Thanks!

I totally hate heights myself. Can't stand them. Bridges are my big problem. Ugh. I love having my feet on solid ground.

I used to LOVE flying. Before I had kids. Now all the bad things that can happen to me consume me and I hate flying.

Oh, same with camping. All them bears, LOL.


(PS - I sent you my new link didn't I? Because this won't link back to my blog anymore)

Hey. I came over from Rockdog's blog.

So, you like the way you feel when you are above everything flying, but don't like to be on top of tall buildings? I can understand that.

I hate driving over tall bridges.
