Such interesting facts Betty! That's one of the fun things about memes isn't it?
I would never have guessed the karate. I suppose there's a story there somewhere?
I've been to Marion's to wish her a Happy Anniversary..

Betty, how interesting to read all this about you. I think it's great to get to know your fellow bloggers a bit better. How sad that all of your siblings have had cancer and only 1 survived. That must have been and doubtlessly still is very tough!

I'm curious as to how you got several jobs but never applied for any of them. Woohoo to the karate and it must have been scary being in an attempted bank robbery.

I think it's great that you've played the piano for such a long time, good for you Betty!!!

Thank you for those interesting fact, Betty. I'm sorry about your brothers and sisters, and I'm praying for you. Thank God you are well. My little grandson 11 has his black belt. It taught him how to protect himself, how to follow directions, etc. He started at age 5. :o) It's wonderful God worked in your getting all those jobs.

Many interesting facts about you!! I love reading these kinds of memes because they tell me a lot about the person. I would never have guessed that you took karate!! BUT i bet it was fun!! Now I would just break something,
Thanks for stopping by and leaving your nice comments on my blog about Simon. it was a hard decision and had been coming for a year. Hubby is having a hard time. I hope your little Annie makes it. Sandy
