Time for a change



If you have ever met me, you probably do not know this. Most people are very surprised when they find this out. While I do not allow smoking in my home, I have been one of those nasty ugly smokers for over half of my life. I contribute not smoking in the house and not being a chain smoker to my not reeking of the nasty smell of my addiction.

I pretty much started at the age of 15 in high school. You see, my little home town use to be agriculturally based and the main cash crop was tobacco. Driving around the county one would see fields and fields of tobacco. I have planted it, hung it, stripped it, graded it and well of course smoked it for about 20 years now.

I have come to the decision that I am tired of smoking. So starting Sunday, I am going to quit smoking. And you know what.... I am actually looking forward to it!

Quitting smoking is the MOST important decision you'll ever make in your life, for you and your loved ones. It is better to start Now, because the longer you stay on it, the more damage it will do to your body.

Good luck with quitting smoking. I should quit too. If you do well, it might inspire me to do it.

Macho, If I can do it, you can too! We've both probably been smoking about the same time:)

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
