19 – Somethin’ #’s 23 & 24

I’m playing catch up this morning. Friday’s are always an extra long work day for me (work 4 hours, 4 hour break, work 4 hours) but added to a 12 hour work day I went visiting family last night so I didn’t get home until really late. So here is my catch-up post for the 19-Somethin’ Challenge!

This challenge is sponsored by P.S. Annie! It’s called 19-Somethin’, where participants answer a question about their past each day of September. Sounds like a fun way to spend a September, right?


23. How old were you when you bought your first car? What kind of car did you get? Do you still have it?

I was 18 when I bought my first car, it was the Datsun 710 I mentioned in an earlier question. I learned to drive with that car and my dad made me buy it from him. I had to go to the bank and get a long (co-signed, of course). I hated him for that – my friends were just given cars. But years later I see his point and don’t hate him for that anymore. 


24. Is there another song that makes you reminiscent of your teenage years?

“One is the Loneliest Number” by Three Dog Night. I loved (still do) Three Dog Night’s music.  I remember wanting to marry Chuck Negron! Of course I don’t know what my other husband-to-be, Jay Osmond would have thought of a second husband!

Jay Osmond is on the left, Three Dog Night on the right. Chuck Negron is the hunk with the ‘stache!

  1. Maybe Jay wouldn’t have minded, being Mormon and all. 🙂

    Thanks for joining our 19-Somethin’ challenge. Have a great day!


  2. I forgot to respond to the car post. I am glad that you don’t hate your daddy anymore about that. 🙂 It usually means more to us if we work for it instead of having it handed to us with no effort on our part. But, there are plenty of things given that folks tend to treasure, too, like grandpa’s watch or granny’s china cabinet, etc.

    Have a blessed day!
