I've been tagged

Nancy from LovelyinChocolate tagged me. Here are seven interesting facts about me. at least I hope they are.

I had a wonderful family of two sons and two daughters. One of my daughters is deceased,
but she left my two wonderful grandaughters. I now have two very special GREAT grandaughters, and a GREAT grandson.

I was blessed with a husband with whom I had 37 wonderful years of marriage. He died
of lung cancer and a few years after, I met again, my childhood friend who also lost a
spouse to cancer, and we married.

I love to travel, and I have been very lucky to have traveled to several countries and states.
Heidi living in Holland has given me a lot of this travel and my first husband was career military.

I spent 22 years of my adult life chasing shoplifters in department stores. I started just doing the floor walking, then ended up being a regional security manager of five stores. I could tell some stories.

I started knitting when we lived in Tripoli, Libya, Africa. A friend who was always knitting, taught me. Her mother owned a knitting shop in New Hampshire, Sharon orederd everything I
would need to knit a cardigan sweater, the rest is history. I still think of Sharon when I knit.

Now that my family is grown and gone, I have to confess that I now dust my stove more than
I ever cook on it. We go out to eat a lot.

With my first husband being career military, both my sons x navy men and now two grandsons
in the army, I love the military and my country. I pray they all stay safe.

I would like to tag: Christian Crafter (my grandaughter, Kristy)
Lilysmom (my great niece)

Hey I knew all of that about you too! But since we're family I suppose that's normal! :o) I love you Gramma and Zoe and I miss you everyday!

What a life you have led! I'm sure you have more than busting-shoplifters stories to tell.

Sorry to hear about your first husband. But pleased to hear that you have found someone again.

I'll try and come up with something. I've done this before so I know how hard it can be. Especially when you ramble like I do all of the time. It's hard to come up with things people don't already know!! LOL!!

Love,
Julie

Wow, it's amazing what you learn about someone. I think that it's wild that you had to go to the other side of the world to learn how to knit.

I will respond tomorrow to your tag.
