Five things you don't know about me

I prefer reading blogs that have a point to them, or a mutual interest. But from time to time I do wonder a bit about the person behind the blog. So, I've been rather intrigued to see people asking other bloggers to write down 'five things you don't know about me'. Tess Watson has asked me to take part. So here goes:

1. I was named after my grandmother Elizabeth Grant Neeson (nee Davidson) who was born on the same Highland Estate as the Elizabeth Grant who wrote ‘Memoirs of a Highland Lady’.

2. When I was 18 I saw the great Ginger Rogers, in a musical review called ‘Anything Goes’ in Detroit, Michigan.

3. I met my future husband when I was sixteen -at a prayer meeting. We disliked each other instantly. We met three years later, by which time he had improved enormously.

4. In 1998 we adopted our youngest son (Jerry) from the Philippines.

5. I persuaded my oldest son Sean David (known as Sid) to start his own blog recently.

I'm not sure if they have been tagged already but I'm going to tag:

David Gilmour
Mrs Blethers
Andrew Brown

Funnily enough, I didn't know you'd been to Detroit! Whereabouts did you see that? Can you remember? Not that it matters... but, you know...

Can't actually remember the name of the theatre. Downtown Detroit seemed pretty scary, hardly there any time when we saw someone mugged! Ginger Rogers was still beautiful -even danced a little on stage.

Hmm - thought I'd escaped that one! It'll have to wait till tomorrow - got to be a Domestic Goddess now. :-(
