Liar Liar - Personal Post

The Mask, AKA The Blogger Formerly Known As was kind enough to pass on this award (which she received from Caterpillar at Musings and Confessions Of A Wandering Mind
Thank you to Mask, who has been so very encouraging to me, a newbie. And to everyone who takes the time to visit here and comment...thank you.

So, I need to tell 4 lies and 1 truth and you decide which is which. Here goes.

1. During an airshow performance, I inadvertently left the canopy open while we were upside down. Thank goodness I had my harness on.

2. While grocery shopping one day, (then) VP Dick Cheney ran into me with his shopping cart.

3. To help pay for college, I worked part-time in a nearby funeral home doing "cosmetic" work.

4. While working at a bookstore, I sat down at the author's signing table for a minute. Someone asked me to sign their book, and I did. Pretty soon, there were dozens of people lining up. When the manager found out, he fired me.

5. While snorkeling on vacation in the Bahamas, I lost track of how far out I had gone, and couldn't get back because of the tide. They had to send someone out to rescue me.

Good luck!

I'm going to pass this award to Turquoise Moon for her blog: thoughtful and inspiring words, quotes and ruminations at Words To Live By.

And, as a random plug (just because I can) check out the prose and the gorgeous paintings of Richard Moisan .


  1. Ha ha ha...thanks for the award. It will take me a day or two to come up with something. As for which one is the truth, I pick #5.

  2. Congratulations on the award...the truth....I'm going with #2.

  3. Congrats on the award! Be glad you ran into Mr. Chaney in the grocery and not in a field :) Least you got to practice autographing. Great lies and truths :D

    Have a lovely weekend!

  4. I’m with turquoisemoon, and saying number 5?

  5. Ha, all of these sound larger than life! I'll say #4.

  6. Of course I can't say. I suppose I'll answer sometime Monday evening, no sense in leaving everyone biting their nails in anticipation. (As if!)
