A is for Annie

I have been watching the alphabet posts over at Bev's place all this month and thought I would jump on the bandwagon. Since I never did a "100 Things" post I realize that there might be one person out there curious about me (hi, Mom!). So here goes nuttin'!

ETA: Thanks to Cassie for the idea! (click for link to her original post)

A is for Anne, my given name, along with a few nicknames: Annie, Annabelle, Anna Banana, Annimol.

A is also for Arlene, my beloved maternal Grandmother who passed away August 20, 2007. She was nearing 93 and not doing very well. I am very happy that she is with Grandpa Fred again, and I'm sure she's mixing up a batch of ribbon brownies for him at this very minute. She was the second telephone operator in her small town of Cloquet, MN and the only woman to hold the position of Mayor there as well. She taught me to never take myself, or life too seriously, and the importance of laughter in a marriage. I feel so fortunate to have had her in my life for so many years.

A is for Australia. In 1992 I took my first solo overseas trip to Australia. I met people from all over the world, on these amazing one and two year long adventures around the world. This trip set into motion the next three years of my life...To be continued!

I managed to finish CeCe, some Regia Bamboo ankle socks, my RSC Solstice Slip socks, a pair of Wendy's Eyelet Rib socks in Lisa Souza's Wild Thing but have NOT managed to get any photos. Sigh.
