Loved reading this! Thanks for playing along!
It is fascinating to learn all about folks-- stuff you normally wouldn't think to ask.
And I do remember fondly that afternoon of sewing. I still need to get you that shark back!!

Terrell? I googled it and saw its east of Dallas... So I bet you have a THICK central Texas twang!

I'm from Houston born and raised. We lived in Chicago for 1.5 years in middle school and I lost my main accent. But you get me around ANYONE with any southern-type accent and its uncontrollable. I talk like um for hours. :)
