Okaaay...you asked for it!!

I was recently "tagged" by two fellow artists to post "seven unusual things about me", then tag seven other artist. In leiu of tagging seven others, they listed seven artists whose blogs they felt would be of interest to others. I was HONORED that both of these artist listed me as 'one of seven artists to watch'!! Those two artists are Maria Kovalenko and Tom Pohlman. Both of them have incredible blogs to see.

Interestingly enough, when I was first tagged, I wondered if I could think of seven things. When I started thinking hard about it, I wondered if seven WOULD BE ENOUGH!! Here goes nothing...

1: I have the best parents in the whole wide world...

2: I hate that this is an unusual thing, but I love pit bulls...

3: Over the last couple of years, I have learned the TRUE meaning of forgiveness.

4: I try to practice it.

5: the pit bulls help me remember to forgive every day, because they do without being asked.

6: I have relatives with webbed toes...yes, thats right! And although I didn't inheret them, I am a GREAT swimmer!!

7: Unfortunately, in my line of work with animals over the years, death is part of the 'job'. Initially terrified at the thought of death, I have grown to accept it, and find it an honor to hold our friends as they pass on. I have actually been requested by friends of mine to hold their horses, dogs, etc.

So, those are pretty unusual. I want to list seven blogs I like to follow. I am not sure how to attach a link, so my apoligies to the artists in advance if people cant click and find you. As I said before, my computer skills are sadly lacking!! It is in my intention...
If there are any of you who have not been 'tagged', list seven unusual things about yourself, then 'tag' seven others. For those of you who have already been tagged, I hope to send some traffic your way!! Cheers!
