I’ve been tagged twice this summer but haven’t had time to reply to either challenge. The first tag comes from my friend John Dobbs. It calls for me to list eight random things about myself. These things are not necessarily marvelous things…or good things … or even interesting things. These do not have to be secret things that no one else knows. So keep that in mind when reading my list. Random simply means they come out of nowhere. Oh…the rules…

The Rules:
Players start with 8 random facts about themselves. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts. Players should tag 8 other people and notify them they have been tagged.

EIGHT RANDOM (and possibly weird) FACTS ABOUT TREY:

  1. I hate getting out of the shower all clean and my teeth still feel dirty, so I brush my teeth in the shower everyday.
  2. I love a good cup of coffee. It is my favorite drink.
  3. I like my breakfast cereal a little soggy, so I’m likely to pour the milk and go do something for a couple of minutes.
  4. I like my ice cream soft. A few seconds in the microwave will make it perfect.
  5. I love doing yard work, it’s my therapy.
  6. I love watching my children from a distance. My chest swells up with pride and I think, “That’s MY boy!” It gives me an idea what God sees when He watches us.
  7. I don’t like to preach with notes. I just want a few thoughts on a single piece of paper.
  8. I think bluetooth earpieces look goofy. I don’t want one.

So, I’ve completed tag number one. I’ll get to tag number two next week. Oh, and here are the eight people I tag with this. I’m going to pick on some new people that we might not know as well around here.

Brandon Price – Put your camera down and fill out the tag :)

Matthew Morine – He’s kind of a new guy around here so it would be great if he’d participate.

Eben Emerson – Being the camp ping-pong champ doesn’t exempt you from this little game.

Chris Clous – He’s been MIA lately.

Dee Andrews – You can’t be to tired from your trip to participate in this can you?

Frank Bellizzi – You’ve been on summer break from teaching college classes, so you’ve got time :)

Jeff Foster – This guy will make it interesting.

Scott Wakefield – Can Scott come out and play?

    Hey Trey… #1 made me laugh out loud! #2,3,&4 will ensure that you will be happy as an old man (‘ensure’ is an unintended pun).

    #8 gets a standing ovation from me.

    Oh, and Dee already did it … pay attention! LOL

  2. Matthew says:

    I will get right to it, tomorrow. Thanks for including me.

  3. TREY MORGAN says:

    Sorry Dee … Looks like you’re off the hook.

  4. Dee O'Neil Andrews says:

    Yes, Trey –

    Pay attention, friend. You’re picking on the wrong person. I mean, I was really “grumbly” according to John Alan Turner in my responses to his tag the first time because I told him (and the rest of the blog world) how much I hate tags(!), so I would be really, REALLY grumbly having to do it again.

    Actually – you can read my responses here:

    Eight Random Facts About Me…

    Okay – are we square now?! I hope.

    I love your eight random facts. You’re a lot more creative than I was, I’m afraid. My creativity lies elsewhere!

    Cheers & Blessings to you all today! Dee

  5. john dobbs says:

    Trey, do you think Dee was kind of grumbly about letting you know that JAT said she was grumbly?

  6. TREY MORGAN says:


    I’ve made a huge nNote to self:
    NO MORE TAGS FOR DEE. It makes her grumbly! :)

  7. Chris says:

    Trey, hmmmm… Tag, I am it…

    Okay, okay, okay… I will be your huckleberry (know where that came from?)

    Btw, thanks for the post on my page telling me about this because we are in the process of moving and I probably wouldn’t have seen it for another week…

    I will do my best to publish this ASAP, and will enlist the help of my beautiful wife to make sure I get random and definitely weird facts for you…

    Doc Holiday,
    I think bluetooth earpieces are the weirdest looking invention ever. I was just thinking about that today. It is one modern tech that I have no desire to have or to even borrow from others. I also think it is odd to see people walking around looking like they are talking to themselves.

    I am also totally with you on 3, 4, 5, 6,& 7 (when I speak with a manuscript, I bomb).

    That must mean I truly am your DiL.
    :) Kathy

  9. preacherman says:

    You brush your teeth in the shower? I hope you get all the tooth paste down the drain. The plummer would be shocked at that one. :-)

  10. Jeff Foster says:

    Trey, I’ve published my Tag list. Problem is, I don’t know 8 other bloggers to tag. I’m working on it, though.

    Question: is it still therapy if you do somebody else’ yard work? I’ve got a back yard that is now about 3 feet deep! I haven’t been home much this summer. How about you schedule a therapy session for 101 N. Fillmore; Cortez, Colorado :-).

  11. TREY MORGAN says:

    Jeff … if you can include a fishing trip to some mountain stream close by … I’ll be there before the weekend. ha

  12. Jeff Foster says:

    Trey, the Dolores River is 12 miles away . . . some of the best fishing in the Rockies!

  • good list. Don't forget Nickelback, OJ, ISIS and beer-throwing Blue Jay fans.
  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.
  • Unfortunately, not a great night for "bobcats." :)
