wHooligan intro: Sue!

Sue and her pup Dolly.
So sweet :)
I am quite happy to introduce to you today my wHooligan, Sue @ CollectInTexasGal!  Sue is a new member of the wHooligan team this year, and I'm so pleased to have her. She has provided below some great answers to questions that were posed to the Co-Host team over at the main A-Z blog. 

Have you ever been to Texas, and if so, what part?
I was hoping someone would ask a question about Texas, so I could brag about being a Texan.  I'm so Texan that it's the focus and title of two of my blogs....CollectInTexas Gal and Tracks of My Texas Ancestors.  As far as what part...it would be easier to say what part of Texas I haven't been to, and honestly I have to say I've been to pretty much every part of the Lone Star State.

What is the wingspan of a swallow?  
I have no idea, but I know how to find out...and that is why I love this question.  It's a 'Researchers' challenge question!  As a Family Historian and Genealogist, research is in my 'Genes', and sharing what I learn through writing my Family's History has been one of the most rewarding and significant challenges of my life.  Now about that Swallow Wingspan...depending on the species, the span ranges from 27-35cm.  Cliff Swallows with an interesting colonizing life style have a span of 28-30cm and weigh 0.7 to 1.2 oz.

Do you remember your dreams?
Sometimes...if the dream wakes me...I try to go back to sleep and pick up where I left off.  When that works...I usually remember them.  Most of my dreams have nothing to do with me or anyone I know.  I've been told I have an 'Old Soul' so perhaps other 'Old Souls' are sharing their lives in my dreams in hopes that my subconscious will remember them in my writing.  Groovy, huh? 

Are any of the AtoZ hosts skiers?  If so do you prefer Breckenridge or Arapahoe Basin?
My answer is sNOw way in the COLD on any ridge or basin known to man...but YES to the WARM Waters of the lakes and reservoirs of West Texas.  This year's Letter 'B' story and photos...Bathing Beauty Bombs...has a bit about my 'Skiing in the 1960's'. 

What do you do with Spam?
Such a loaded question...but here goes.  My mother, bless her heart, bought Spam in a can and had several creative recipes that stretched Spam to it's limits to feed seven.  I have sworn to DELETE Spam off all my lists (grocery and comment) and feed it to my Email Spam Lovers.

Have you signed up for the A-Z Challenge yet?? Less than one week of deliberation time left...
