~ 1 I am related to Sherwood Bonney who settled in the Pierce County area. Bonney Lake was named after him and his wife started the first organized school in Steilacoom. They had such a large house (two rooms!) and they didn't know what to do with all the space and so the school was started! Go Figure!! :)
~ 2 I love to cook--especially gourmet and ethnic dishes. I think Thai is my favorite--right now at least!
~ 3 I am currently reading The Return of Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse and am absolutly loving it! I have become a Wodehouse fan! Thank you Cassie!! :) BTW--the Jeeves and Wooster TV show is a hoot too!
~ 4 I love politics! I attended my county convention last spring as a delegate and was the youngest from my district by about 40 years! It was a great experience and quite unforgetable--especially when the power went out! For those of you who my be wondering.....I will be voting for McCain and Palin!!
~ 5 I take a shower every day--except when camping!
~ 6 I have known Melissa her whole life and have many stories....any takers??
