Versatile Blogger

My Blog Buddy Claudia Moser sent me a Versatile Blogger award today.
Since I've been blogging for almost six years, there's very little I haven't revealed about myself.
But the challenge is to tell 10 things about myself, so here goes:
1. I've snorkeled in the Bay of Colon - Panama
2. I was bitten by an Ocelot - Panama
3. I dove off Duncan Bridge into Smith Lake (40 feet from bridge to water)
4. I have an hourglass on my desk
5. In high school, I was selected class favorite in the 7th and 8th grades (don't laugh when you see the hair)
6. I've helped dig graves at the old cemetery near my childhood home
7. I played at the Napa Valley Wine Festival two years in a row with my lovely spouse Jilda
8. I've ridden in the engine of a freight train
9. I've dangled my feet off the end of a train
10. I swam in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans on the same day (again, in Panama)

So now, who do I select to get the versatile blogger?
You are Loved
Aine Tierney
Vittles and Committals 
Starkley Hollow
Grandpappy's Thoughts

Happy Memorial Day weekend.


  1. Very interesting Rick. It's always good to hear new things even if they are old to some.

  2. Sounds like you had quite a time in Panama. Thanks for sharing!

  3. The 7th and 8th grade favorites? Very impressive, and I loved seeing the pictures!

  4. Cool facts about yourself! Love it -

  5. Congratulations on the award - your list of 10 things certainly demonstrates you are versatile!

    And - the hair is very cool ;)

  6. Have a peaceful memorial weekend!! And please let's see "the hair", thank you! :-)

    congratulations with your award! Take care

  7. I wonder what they were setting us up for when young people are voted "favorite". You look like a kind young man in the photos.
    Grave digger would be interesting.
    You saved the best one for last. Fun list.

  8. Your hair certainly did change in one year! You have done some very cool things. Good for you!

    Loved the pictures! congrats on the award! thanks for passing it onto me :D

  11. I love your list! How in the world did you get bitten by an ocelot? That's a story that needs to be told (unless as a new reader I missed it elsewhere on your blog.) Swimming in both oceans on the same day is interesting.
