Tag, You're It!

I got a request from Annie over at The Day After Yesterday to play the game of 'Tag' with her. I would never turn down a request from her, so here goes!

First, I must answer the following questions:

If you could be any historical or current character who would you be?
I wouldn't want to be anyone other than myself.

Name an interesting fact about yourself
I am a pretty basic guy with basic needs and accomplishments........not all that interesting.  

If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?
The development of all 'organized religion'. It has led to so much conflict in the world.

Which character traits annoy you?
Selfishness, meanness, arrogance and narrow-minded stupidity.

Name one thing that you would change in yourself?
I would be more forgiving of others and show more compassion.

What do you consider your biggest achievement?
My biggest achievement was to 'survive' the school system for almost 30 years as a teacher.

There! That's done. Now it is my turn to 'Tag' eight (8) people to play along with us. I figured the only way for me to choose these 8 is to pick the first 8 in my 'Google Reader' they are listed right at this moment. And they are:

1. Terry at 'Moondance Ranch'
2. Sharon at 'Life With Jack And Jill'
3. Mark at 'Our Simple Lives'
4. Jojo at 'My Random Insanities'
5. Chris at 'Midwestern Mama With A New York Heart'
6. Barbara at 'If I Didn't Have A Sense Of Humor'
7. Christine at 'I'm Not Old, I'm Vintage'
8. Nancy at 'A Rural Journal'

Here are the rules according to Annie:

Rule 1 - No Tag-Backs (this means I can't tag the people who tagged me - Gits)
Rule 2 - You must tag a further 8 bloggers (we'll see about that)
Rule 3 - You must answer the questions that were sent to you (I might invent my own set of questions)
Rule 4 - You must have a link back to the people who tagged you (yeh, yeh, already done it) 

This is all about fun. Enjoy. If \nybody else wants to 'play'....go for it!


  1. Oh, man, that's the second tag I got today! I guess I will have to get busy in the morning......

  2. Nice getting to know you a bit more ... totally with you on the organized religion thing ... we have destroyed so many lives in the name of religion ...

  3. You are interesting. I am not such a fan of arrogance myself. I just can't take it! Be humble and you will go far. ; )
    I think you are fascinating.

  4. Really like a couple of your answers!

  5. Well, it is nice to learn even more about you. No huge acomplishments, eh? Now you're being modest, I'm sure.
    Thank you for this but I am going to pass. I know, I'm a party pooper but I don't want to spring this on anyone who may not want it. And plus, I'm sure I've told you everything about myself already. Do I have any secrets left? I'm not sure. Thanks again and have a great day! Mark

  6. Looks like quite a game of tag taking place at some of my favorite blogs!

  7. Jim, have been mowing most of the day -- probably won't get a post up on this, but I really appreciate your including me.

    Hope you are having fun playing! :)

  8. Nancy and Mark.....I TOTALLY understand.

    Sharon......cause you are SO popular!

    Becky.....'back at cha'!

    Thanks everyone else for the comments.

  9. Hiya Jim, you are waaaaayyyy too self-effacing. I don't even know a tenth of you but find you very interesting - your AMAZING photographs, your antiques, the fact you live in an amazing place .... etc.

    Thanks for taking part - you are a star, and I hoped you enjoyed it!

  10. well, I haven't been 'tagged' in an awful long hemmm. I'll play along as soon as I can get blogger to co-operate. Thanks Jim!

  11. I think you are very modest Jim and sound happy & confident in who you are which is great.


Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
