Little Black Sambo and Peter Rabbit. Books have a way of taking you to a different time and place. I can read and get so wrapped up in the story that I feel like I am there. I guess that was my escape from reality. Especially during my teenage years when I would always be trying to hide from my father. Out of sight out of mind was our motto. Reading would keep me occupied for hours. Sometimes I would even go out my bedroom window to leave the house because if he saw you he would put you to work. I am not talking regular chores around the house, I am talking like here "Here's a shovel, go move this truck load of manure into the garden area" or "Here, move these 10 wood piles from this location to that location. My little sister hated when I read magazines because I would never play with her. She never understood it! Even to this day she hates when any of us sisters read magazines around her! LOL...Sorry Sammy....(That is our nickname for her)
Here is my evil eye that Sandy got me from Turkey. Way before I went there. It was a key chain, but it is hard to recognize it now. It has been worn down and abused. I don't want to get rid of it because I figure with all those evil eyes that are gone or missing, it must have saved me from quite a few evil things! So it sits in my desk drawer....lonely and every once in a while I will pull it out and look at it.
That is it for now. It tells you a little more about me. I leave you with a challenge...what do you have that says something about who you are? Post it on your blog and let the world know a little more about you.
