I Got Tagged!

Doug Johnston

Alison Palmer and Janet Jensen both tagged me and then someone had to tell me what that meant. I'm supposed to reveal seven facts about myself. So here are seven facts about me:
1. I have 5 children, one married (Two Days Ago) . I have 2 step-daughters and 4 step grandchildren.
2. I lived in Spain for four years, and Mississippi for two. I loved both of them. I would love to go back to both places sometime with my wife.
3. I have bowled 15 strikes in a row and didn’t get a 300. I had five strikes in game 2, followed by 10 strikes in game 3. That game ended with a 288. I worked at a three different bowling centers when I was younger also.
4. I coached high school soccer for two seasons.
5. I carried the Olympic torch.
6. I have eaten dinner with 3 Utah Governors, met personally with four U.S. congressmen, and two U.S. senators. (It helped that I ran a newspaper)
7. I played baseball for 15 years and only hit one home run. I was called out when I did so. I was 12. I lived in Spain and Mr. McGinnis was the umpire. He said I stepped out of the batters box when I hit the home run. I knew him well, and told him after the game, I would never forgive him. I HAVEN”T! I know, I should forgive everyone.

And now I am tagging:

Abel Keogh
Terri Ferran
Tracy Winegar
Lee Ann Setzer
Carlene Duda
Camille Funk
Sidne O'Reilly

And here's what they're supposed to do:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Oh Doug, I just found out I am tagged. It is 10:00 PM at night. That is 1/2 hour after my bedtime. I promise I will continue the tag blog in the morning!

This sounds fun. I have a feeling this could get wild.
