FIRSTS! I saw this over at Valerie's at It's a Wonderful Life. Check out her blog, she says it like it is and I love it. I always enjoy stopping by, never a dull moment. Sparky, I stole it first. LOL

So here are some Firsts about me, read on and enjoy and laugh or not, just don't fall asleep please. If you feel so inclined copy and do a post yourself.

1. Who was your FIRST prom date? Dave Lucido. I was a Sophomore and he was a Junior and it was his Junior Prom.

2. Do you still talk to your FIRST love? Heck NO, I hear he is still a little stuck on me still so it is better to stay in hiding.

4. What was your FIRST job? I worked at Hilson's Clothing store wrapping purchases at Christmas time.

5. What was your FIRST car? A red Toyota Corolla that was handed down from my brother. My first stick shift. I didn't know how to drive it so my brother took me to San Francisco and parked on a hill, told me to get in the driver's seat and said, "Let's go!" SCARY......But I did it and I was proud of myself.

6. Who was the FIRST person to text you today? Nobody texted me, I feel so unloved.

This was most enjoyable. My brother asked us to keep his car for him when we lived in Burlingame. He had been assigned to Pearl Harbor and had to wait to ship his car over. Ron loved this little Gremlin...He'd purposely take it into SF when we would go on outings just for the shear challenged of driving that "manual" up and down the hills. What memories! Thank you!

Hey, it's OK about beating me to the punch. :o) Aren't these things fun!? We get to know one another much better this way. Enjoyed your answers too.

I'm jealous, I've never been in a limo but I HAVE been in a heliocopter! Does that count? ha ha

Hope your kitty is better today. Now I have a sick dog (Sam Jr.). He has an ear infection, poor kid. He's on medicine and on the mend.

((Hugs)) ♥ ∞

Oh my gosh. I had a funny experience learning how to drive a stick shift. My father got me in a parking lot and taught me. Well that night when he came to pick me up from a friend's house he had been drinking and told me I had to drive. I drove home in evening California traffic for about 20 minutes. Grinding gears all the way! lol

Ginger said...

Loved reading about you. I've never been in a limo or on a plane. I guess I am too sheltered. lol.

Loved reading about you.

Alicia sure is beautiful.

Janeen said...

Dahling sister,
I found a correction you need to make.... the first wedding you were in was when you were a Flower Girl walking with our dear brother, the Ring Bearer for Gerald/Emily's wedding. Remember your beautiful pink dress in the photo of the two of you dancing at the reception? Yeaaaaaa, it's all coming back to you now. ha ha I don't even think I was born yet or if I was, I was an infant probably. We can ask Mom tonight at the party!

Hi Melody, I was just at Janeen's blog before I came over here so I recognize some of these firsts as being similar to hers, ie. driving in and out of Mexico! Interesting to learn of your firsts and there are some sweet stories behind these to be sure.

MuseSwings said...

A bloggy adventure awaits! Pack your bags and meet us at the train station in Paris!

Hi Melody:
Just popping in to say hi and hope you are doing okay.

GutsyWriter said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I noticed that the FIRST thing you did this morning was to hug your cat, before your husband? Just kidding! You sure have a good memory. Don't know if I could remember all those answers. Congratulations on being a Grandma soon. You look so young. My oldest son is 21, in college in Michigan. We live in California.

Michelle said...

Melody I loved reading this post. It made me laugh when you said you thought of yourself the first thing in the morning. Me too! LOL

petra michelle; Whose role is it anyway? said...

Melody, my lush bed is beckoning, but before I turn in, I wanted to thank you for making the adventure of the Orient Express a memorable one!
Am still not sure if Mssr. Poirot has found the murderer, but I have heard a coffin slid off the train! Night, Night, Melody. But keep the lights on! ;)
