I Have Been Tagged

I have been tagged to list my six quirks! Only six ..piece of cake. I was tagged by The DVM's Wife ..she is so sweet.

My Six Quirks
1. I love farm smells, a wet dog, freshly cut hay, a sweaty horse..and even hogs!
2. I embarrass my daughters on a regular basis. Saying penis or vagina right out loud does it every-time.
3. I am a recovering Obsessive Compulsive person. I used to scrub my kitchen floor twice a day. I bathed my poor daughters twice a day when they were that new baby smell too! I have made a nice recovery..thank you!
4. I love black licorice and hoard it.
5. I don't carry a purse or a bag, I kept leaving it places.
6. I cried when my 1984 Ford Bronco II was sold and left the yard. I drove it for 20 years, it was like an old friend, getting me through snowbanks and muddy roads. I still miss it. Kinda sick isn't it?
Oh the list goes on and on...
Now that I have spilled my guts. Here are the rules:
Link to the person who tagged you
Mention these rules on your blog
Tell about your six quirks
Tag six bloggers to do the same
Leave them a comment to let them know that you have tagged them

I am not a tagging freak..this is the first time I have been tagged. This is the first time I will be tagging people ...I am like a Virgin Tagger.. HA.. Your It: Lattice, A little of this a little of that, Jewels Gems, Life on a Colorado Farm, Muddy Boots Dream and Just a Hippie Gypsy.
Well I look at it as an opportunity to get to know a person better.. :)

Ahhh ha! and Ugggh ah! I won't come out and play sorry. I don't do the awards thingy's, and I never was very good at tag.

But I will share with you that I agree with your #1, except for wet dogs. And #5, for sure, that is me. I have actually had it stolen because I left it behind.

I am still your friend, I love your blog, and big WEB-hugs to you.

But sorry, Jen will not come out and play tag today, or any other day. How about some stamping, or maybe some photography?

Black licorice is wonderful... Don't really think it should be any other colour...

LOL at your quirks! I think that tag is fun - if the tag thingy is interesting - like listing your quirks...

I love RED licorice, the smell of downy, and the purse thing is brilliant. However, where would I put all the crap that I REALLY NEED? hahaha

Those are funny, especially your #2 quirk. Your poor daughter.
I love red Twizzlers, could eat a whole bag.
Thanks for sharing in the fun!

Number 6.....We sold are Int 685 tractor this year. We bought the Massey a month later. But I cried like a baby after the people left the deposit. Like not just tears...shaking and crying. So pathetic. So I fully embrace number 6 right along with you.

What a frank, illuminating and characterful list.

It's really interesting.

(When you get your twentieth tag, you may find you are scraping the barrel.)

Thanks gals for the comments, it was fun. But not something I will do on a regular basis. It will depend on the subject matter and how much free time I have on my hands:)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I just have to say that my husband could totally relate to #1. Anytime we are out driving and pass a farm, he wants to roll down the windows to "enjoy the smell." Makes me want to throw up, but he loves it!

I loved your list. I'm with you on the sweaty horse and fresh cut hay. Thanks for letting us get to know you better.
