I was working on another serious post this morning…but it was just not coming together. I’m going to let it incubate and give my addled brain a rest from thinking and from a busy week and do this fun-looking meme I saw at Melli‘s, who saw it at Thom‘s.
First Job: Besides baby-sitting for my Mom’s friends, I worked for a whole week at a fast food place. I don’t know if that counts since it was so short.
First Real Job: University Library.
First Favorite Politician: Ronald Reagan.
First Car: I’ve never had a car of my own. The first car I drove was my parent’s — I don’t even remember what it was. I’m not a car aficionado. It was small and tan.
First Record/CD: A set of Disney songs.
First Sport Played: Whatever we did in P.E. I’ve never played on an organized sports team.
First Concert: The Lutheran church I attended at the time took us to see Jesus Christ Superstar. Reading the words later — it doesn’t quite compute that a church youth group would go there…
First Foreign Country Visited: None!
First Favorite TV Show: Captain Kangaroo
First Favorite Actor: Bobby Sherman of Here Come the Brides. I wonder why we don’t see that one in reruns these days?
First Favorite Actress: The girl who played the daughter, Audra, on The Big Valley.
First Girlfriend/Boyfriend: My cousin Tommy when I was 2, so my parents tell me.
First Encounter with a Famous Person: My Girl Scout troop went to see Ladybird Johnson when she came to declare Padre Island in Texas a national site. I was near enough to shake her hand but too shy to.
First Brush With Death: None that I know of for sure, but I’ve had some pretty close encounters in the car.
First House/Condo Owned: A fixer-upper that was way over our heads, though we didn’t know it at the time.
First Film Seen: Oh, boy, I don’t remember. One of the first I remember is The Love Bug.
First Favorite Recording Artist: The Monkees.
First Favorite Radio Station: I don’t remember from growing up. From college, early married days, WMUU.
First Book I Remember Reading: A Child’s Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson.
If you borrow this, let me know and I’ll come read yours!
