    This is fun. I could go on FOREVER. By the way, I worked at a Radio Station in the Traffic Department too. No one knows what that is unless you worked in a radio station. That’s how I became so good at entering numbers on a spreadsheet. Quick digits.

Three things I answer to – Lizard Lis Madre Three places I’ve called home – Texas, Colorado, New Mexico Three places I’ve worked – racetrack test barn Police Department ranch horse manager Three things I love to watch – Dogs playing, Horses playing, birds at the feeder Three things I love to eat – venison, Chocolate, Gin&tonic Three things I’m looking forward to – seeing my granddaughter in California, building my one room cabin with the wood-burning stove, riding the Colorado Trail from end to end in 2017 Thanks for the challenge! It’s fun to write it down and be specific. Have a great Christmas!!!

My favorite hobbies are photography, soap making and writing. 5. My favorite smells include lilacs, fresh baked cinnamon rolls, my son when he’s freshly bathed. 6. I’m looking forward to no alarm clock for 2 weeks, possible snow in the forecast, hanging with family on Christmas.

    • no alarm clock for 2 weeks …….ooh ahh … Love your list, thank you for playing along. And now I would like some cinnamon rolls! MJ

    • *Censored* ha ha ha! Pizza – heck yeah! I am glad you played along — CT — see my response to David πŸ™‚

      have a great day! MJ

  6. PS: You’re getting a snow storm today? Wow! We’ll be back in the 60s on Monday.

  7. Oh, this is fun! I’d love to play along, but I’m playing catch-up as it is! I will say that my three things I love to watch would probably match yours exactly!

  8. Thanks, MJ. I hope you don’t mind if I play here, I’m taking the week off from blogging.
