Let’s Do Something Fun ~ Roll Call!!!

by Karen Hand

So, where are you from?  Everyone has a story, tell me yours.  Where are you from or more importantly perhaps, where are you living now.  There is a purpose to my asking and no, it’s not just because I am a curious creature.  😉  Knowing where all my lovelies live will help me best direct offers your way.  Yep.  Sometimes offers are only for a particular region, state, etc.  I don’t want to offer if I don’t have people there, but I also don’t want to not offer something, only to find out later that I have a bunch of readers living there.

So, where do you call home?

For me right now Wisconsin is home.  Yes, I love cheese.  Sadly, I don’t eat quite as much as I used to with my living healthier these days, but I still consider myself a cheesehead.  I enjoy my cheese when I can and just up my activity to compensate.  I am southern by birth though as I was born in West Virginia, but my parents though moving with a new born who was just three days old was a great idea.  So then I lived in Virginia until about the age of 10.  I’ve lived in other places too like Germany for about three years and Kansas City, MO for about three years too, but Wisconsin has been home the majority of my life.

So now it’s your turn.  Where’s home?

*I’d like to add this little amendment.  Through my little post here I’m learning that our Ninjas don’t just live in the US.  While I put a pic of a US map in this post, my thinking was not meant to reflect such a narrow mind as to think all Ninjas lived only in the US.  I sincerely apologize to anyone I may have offended.  I’m glad our stealthy Ninjas are out representing the world.  Please keep letting me know where you’re living.

NYC, born and bred, although I spent 12 miserable years in Nevada. I think I might have been from Wisconsin in a previous life, as I am a cheese-a-holic!

I am a San Diego native. I have lived in Chula Vista California all my life. I did live in Mississippi for a couple year with my father when I was 10 but returned at age 12. I then moved to Maui Hi in 2000. Only stayed there for a year due to medical issues. From there returned home to beautiful Chula Vista. Yes it was paradise! But San Diego is my home!

I actually consider the world my home as I travel quite a bit, but I do have a home in Massachusetts and another in Crete, Greece.

MD, do you need someone to watch your other home in Crete? ;) Wow. I'm envious. Greece is some place I would love to travel too. It's on my list.

I am a very proud Canadian! I am from Ontario but I have traveled throughout the country and the U.S. I very much like the American people but I no longer go there after my family suffered a very scary and unprovoked attack by 2 men. When we called the police they were not interested. They told us to go back to Canada where we belong. So we did!

Whoot for Canadians!!! Debbie thank you for reminding us that so many of our readers are from Canada and other parts of the world. I apologize for not setting this post up as such. I am also sorry for hearing of the experience you had here. In my opinion that is very uncalled for and extremely unacceptable. You would always be welcomed here in Wisconsin, at least in my home!!!

I live now in Illinois just south of Wisconsin, where my husband is born, raised, & lived til about 4 years ago. I myself was born in South Carolina, lived in several other eastern states then we moved to Illinois. I've also considered Idaho where my parents moved to home. So I have three states that are like home! Illinois, Wisconsin, & Idaho.

It's been so darn cold here in Va. lately I wish I lived in a warmer climate. We have terrible heat and humidity in the summer and bitter cold in the winter. It seldom snows, we have ice storms.

Born and raised in Texas!! I'm from Texas City, which most people don't even know exists. lol It's between Houston and Galveston. About 20 min each way. The only other place I have lived was in Austin for about 6 months, then came back home. There were better opportunities there, but my heart was here, so I came back. Guess it's a good thing because then I had my oldest son! Never left since. Not sure if that's a good thing or not lol
