Welcome Guest: LaVerne Thompson

Please give a warm welcome to LaVerne Thompson. I know she'd love to gab with you, so leave a comment!

LaVerne, tell me five things I probably don’t know about you and that most folks wouldn’t guess.

I'm a pretty straight forward person, more so now that I'm older. I know what I like and I like what I know, but I am open to new things.

Most people think I'm very friendly and this is true. But when meeting new people I can be very quiet, at first, that's because I'm listening and assessing (the lawyer in me). Now some people mistake this quietness for shyness. This misimpression doesn't last long. I'm anything but. LOL

I love to dance around, even when there's no music you can hear playing, drives my girls nuts, but every now and then they find themselves doing the same thing. We dance to the beat of our own drums.

While I love my Kindle and my husband's Nook, I will always love the smell of a brand new book and can be caught sniffing the pages and feeling content. My kids do the same thing. Hmm, I guess I should be very very careful what I do around them. LOL!

Like most people I watch the local news before going to bed at night, but this is often depressing so I always need a pick me up. So I have TIVO shows for this purpose, usually I'll watch reruns of Frasier, Seinfeld or The Nanny. I prefer to fall asleep with a smile on my face.

Fill In the Blank: In my pocket _________

In my pocket is my Blackberry cell phone. It is on me at all times.

Write me a paragraph using the following three words: Generous, Football, Dog

We got my dog Coco when she was eight weeks old, and topped off at less than 3 pounds. She's a brown and white short haired Chihuahua and we were told she'd grow to be no bigger than the size of a football. When people first saw her they'd say, 'What the hell is that?' and 'Is it real?' Then she began to grow. Turns out she's got a bit of Beagle in her and let me tell you she grew to a pretty generous size football. Still, in the winter when we put her outside, she's not even big enough to break the ice on the ground. She ends up slipping and sliding all over the place. But hey, we love her anyway.
