I've been Tagged: 8 Random Facts about Me!

I have been tagged by John L. Trapp of Birds Etcetera to play the Eight Random Facts meme. This is starting to make it rounds and it ought to be fun.

The Rules are as follows: Each person posts the rules before their list, and then they list eight things about themselves. At the end of the post, that person tags and links to 8 other people; then visits those people's sites and comments, letting them know that they have been tagged, and for them to come read your post so they will know what to do.

Eight Random Facts About Me

1. I'm a new 'birder'. I just started within the last two months when we purchased a new camera.

2. So far, my favorite bird to watch and photograph is the Red-Headed Woodpecker. They are at least two juveniles learning from their parents in my backyard.

3. I'm learning photography from a friend, Matt Terry, who is great at his craft. He's also going to get tagged!

4. I've been married for 7 years to a wonderful woman, Shelley. She is a gift from God and is very patient with me. She looks over my shortcomings and has helped me to become a much better man than I was before I met her!

5. I'm a 'gadget geek'. I like to keep up with the latest in gadget technology.

6. I enjoy spending time at my brother-in-law and his wife's house. It is in the Central Arkansas area up on Brush Mountain. Shelley & I get to relax, enjoy the scenery and spend time with family members who are also our friends.

7. I have a friend who has spent a little time with the Nature Conservancy in the Bird Woods looking for the 'Lord God Bird'.

8. My wife and I have a retail business, The Gift Shaker, that I help with in addition to my real job. She is the brains behind the business and I do some heavy lifting. I'm still trying to get on 'full-time' so more heavy lifting is in my future!

And now for my taggees... Drum roll please.....

I could only come up with five nominees. I know I'm breaking the rules!

Very nice, J. Karl. You are SO lucky to have Red-headed Woodpeckers nesting in your backyard!

Thanks for your nice comments John. I snapped more pictures yesterday of the juveniles and the adult Red-Heads. Very interesting watching them learn to hunt and forage. The juveniles also are very playful with each other, just like kids!
