8 things about me

My e friends Becky http://www.mrswolfe.blogspot.com/ John Cowart of www.cowart.info/blog/ have tagged me for a meme of 8 things about myself. I 'll do that and tag some of my friends. If you are on my list and have the time to play this game, please do so and tag your friends to do the same.
8 things about myself
1. When I was about 5 years old my parents took me with them for shopping and I saw 2 cloaked and veiled Muslim women and followed them into a restaurant (unknown to my folks).My parents started searching for me frantically. They found me in there crying my heart out and Muslim ladies trying to pacify me with ice cream.
2.When I was in Grade One I wrote a story about the Apollo spacecraft landing on the moon and won the first prize in the elementary section
3.I accepted Christ when I was 12 years old at a tent meeting in which one of Billy Graham 's Indian associate evangelists was speaking.
4.I started taking guitar lesson in Grade 8.When the teacher discovered I was a good student he used to ask me to teach the class and take a break.
5.I advertised in a penpal magazine when I was in High School and received hundreds of letters in response.I picked out a few to reply to and instead of burning the rest I threw them in a roadside garbage bin. It was a very hot and windy day and soon the wind blew my letters all over the street.My aunt who was returning home from work saw the mess with my name on it. She came home and gave me a scolding and sent the house help out to gather all the letters (12 baskets full LOL ) and burn them.My aunt saved me otherwise I would have been the most famous teenager in town.
6.I wish I could be a journalist, owner of a bookshop, psychiatrist/counsellor , vet or event manager.
7.Some animals I want to have as pets are...sheep,duck and meerkat.
8.When Presidents Carter and Reagan were elected I wrote to congratulate them and received replies from the White House.

Hi Amrita..I also got lost at a very young age at Disney land in California...my parents followed me around as I went from ride to ride..never having to pay a thing..must have been my youthful charm!!! It would never do in this day and age!!...By the way...You can see your answers on my blog..

ooh, fun 8 things. Thanks for playing along! I would love to have sheep one day too :) Do you still play guitar? I would like to learn one day. My husband plays beautifully. Too funny about the penpal letters! I would like to be a journalist too and I took an event management course but decided it would take up opposite hours to what my husband works.
