Okay this is a little hard

since I tell all about myself
hard think of things I haven't said LOL.

  1. I was married once, WHAT! yes a very good friend of mine was living here as a refugee. His mother was dying and he wanted to go home and see her before she did. So he asked if I could help him so I did. We got married and he had his chance to see her before she pasted away. We are still best friends, we got divorced and he got married and has a daughter. She came with her dad last Christmas and brought me a gift, she wanted to thank me for helping her father because if I hadn't she wouldn't be here. He always says he owes me his life, I don't think that, he is a very good man...
  2. I run a art group on yahoo called Like Minded Artist, there are some wonderful artist in my group. I have made a lot of fabulous friends all over the world. I feel privileged to call them my friend. I am honoured to have this group..
  3. I have lived on my own for soooo many years I can't fathom it being any other way, well unless I find myself that lovely Scotsman I dream about heheheh!!!!
  4. I have a best friend,Tonniece we have been friends for 40 yrs or so, I wonderful to have a cherished friend for that long and I am blessed to have her in my life.....
  5. By the time I was born my parents were older so they both passed away when I was in my 20s. My oldest sister is 72 and the youngest is 48. My poor mother was having babies most of her life. We were all spread apart so my older sisters were almost like my aunts when I was young. Now we are like sisters..
  6. I have had a chance to travel thanks to my youngest sister Sandy She lives in England, I have been to Germany, beautiful Barcelona, and my favorite place Scotland. I never dreamed I would see any of these places...

7. When I was young I wanted to go to Africa to help the poor, so instead I ended up working and helping the homeless and abused here.. I always knew I was born to help others and I dedicated my life to that. Even just putting a smile on someones face is great thing for me and them...

OK that is finally done, I'm not going to tag anyone else, they have all be tagged before..

Have a wonderful day Dianne

Dianne, I enjoy all of your tag list posts. I learn more of you each time I read them. But, all of them just further emphasize the one thing that I know of you ... that you have the most beautiful and gorgeous heart.


*Tonniece did it. Even Sue. And now you. I'd better get going and do my part.

Thanks for doing this - it's great to learn all these things about you! You sound like you've had a very rich life, and have made a difference to the world, and I think that's really important.

I know, I should do one of these too, I've been tagged a few times, but I never know what to say about myself. Maybe one day...

Hi Dianne - What a terrific post. I really enjoyed finding out more about you and your life (and a very interesting one at that!). Thanks for your lovely comment on your recent visit to my blog - that was really nice of you. Cheers

I like looking at the work you post and the pictures of the places you visit.

You are a most interesting woman.

This post for 'finding out more' opened places I hadn't learned from just reading the blog.
I suppose that is the point of being tagged.
You did a fabulous job of opening up and putting your 'out there'
I just love coming to visit here.
