Give Me Five Monday

Give Me 5 Monday logo

Give Me Five memorable things you have done before.

  • I was blessed to be with my daughter during her labor and delivery of granddaughter Claire this past Saturday.
  • I did lots of hiking along the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon in the day.
  • I saved my daughter Rebecca’s life when she was little, using the Heimlich maneuver.
  • When in high school, our band was selected to march at Disneyland.
  • When I was in high school, I was on an overnight hike at Yosemite National Park. We strung up our pack of food, but bears got it anyway. The bear knew how to open the canned milk with its claws!

    Hostess Becca says this about the meme:

    The ‘Give Me Five’ Monday meme is designed to share fun information with each other in a simple short list! Here’s how it works. Each week, I will put out a random topic from my list of topics and you share 5 answers of your choice on the given topic and link back here! You can add photos, links or stories or just a simple list of your own of 5 things that relate to the topic as it pertains to you and your life experiences. It doesn’t have to be in any order of importance unless otherwise specified.
