19-Somethin’ #22 plus Cat vs Human

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?


22. When did you first live on your own? Did you buy or rent your first home? Do you have a picture of it? Please share it if you do.

I have moved so much in my life that I would prefer to never move again – but that probably won’t happen. I’ve never owned a home – renting and/or sharing with others. My first place on my own was to a 2nd story apartment in an old house in Olde Towne, Portsmouth when I was 19. A year later I moved to the third story in the same house. Then a move to share with a friend in Virginia Beach, then to a duplex in Norfolk, then back to Virginia Beach sharing with 2 other people; then renting a room from a married couple; then back to Norfolk to share with a mother and her two kids; then Norfolk again to share a mobile home; then back to Virginia Beach to share a townhouse with a friend; a move home to mom’s; a move to my sister’s house when she moved to North Carolina; then the big move to Georgia; back to my mom’s in Virginia Beach and finally to where I am now. I always swore my mom stole me from a band of gypsies since roaming is in my blood!!


Now a fun cartoon from Cat vs Human. Please visit their website for more fun!!


Share Your World, week 2

From Cee’s Photography Blog comes Share Your World, Week 2:

Do you believe in extraterrestrials or life on other planets? 

lb sat art I do believe that humans are not the only intelligent life in the Universe. The Universe is too big, too unexplored and ever-expanding for us to be the only beings around. Whether they are visiting us, well, that is a different matter!

How many places have you lived? You can share the number of physical residences and/or the number of cities.

summer-1966-meAs a child I lived in Jackson, Mississippi (2 different homes), Gainsville, Florida, Starkville, Mississippi and finally Virginia Beach, Virginia (2 different homes). As an adult I have lived in Savannah, Georgia; and the following cities in Hampton Roads, Virginia: Portsmouth, Norfolk (3 different places) and Virginia Beach (8 different places). I really hate moving.

The Never List: What are things you’ve never done? Or things you know you never will do?

I try to never say never because the only thing for certain is the moment I hold in my hands right now.
