* I've been crocheting for around 35 years.
* I have a 'floater' in my left eye (doctor says it's ok) - it's a sideways Y - very appropriate I would say since my last name starts with a Y.

* I am 56 years old - but in my mind I feel younger. Well, except for my various aches, pains and crazy body problems that are associated with menopause. Oh, and also when I'm with my grandsons. (Can't be young and have grandsons.)
* In the safety of my PT Cruiser, I fuss at stupid drivers. For example:
- that's some mighty fine driving there jackass!
- Jeez Grandma (or Grandpa) the speed limit is 45 not 30!
- where's your frickin turn signal idiot?!
- hey jackass - who taught you how to drive?!
~~~I should be ashamed of myself. :)
* I love spending time at our trailer at the campground but I absolutely hate having to use the bath-house across the little dirt road at night - there's spiders in the doorway. Which leads me to...
* Spiders. Spiders freak me out. They give me the willies just thinking about 'em.
