TTT - 10 Facts About Me

This top 10 weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and can be found HERE.  Each week they focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading. This week is all about sharing information so I am providing you with 10 facts about me/my blog.

1.  I DON'T ACTUALLY LIVE ON A FARM.  If you ever look at my initial few posts HERE and HERE, you'll gather a little insight about how The Farm was started.  I guess it technically was never a book blog to begin with either.



4.  MY TWO HUMAN BEST FRIENDS ARE MY HUSBAND AND MY GRANDFATHER.  Here he is with my cousin's son.  Grandpa will be 95 in July and is still going strong!

5.  MY FAVORITE MOVIE IS "WHAT DREAMS MAY COME."  I have read the book but didn't like it as well.

6.  MY FAVORITE AUTHOR IS STEPHEN KING. No big surprises there I am sure.

7.  PRINCE IS MY FAVORITE MUSICIAN (again, but shocker).  I love all kinds of music and in college listened to a lot of alternative, but my favorite always has been and always will be Prince.  In fact, I have watched Purple Rain 4 times since his passing alone.

8. I AM AN ONLY CHILD.  I truly consider myself an introvert but can "play" an extrovert really well when the situation calls for it.

9.  MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE OWNED 5 BOXERS SINCE WE WERE MARRIED - Cicero, Barkley. Cooper, Booker T and Cassius.  They have all had "B" or "C" names even though Booker is primarily called "T."   In fact, we already have names for our next one, hubby like Chaden (if you like Banshee, the series, you will recognize this) and I want 2 brothers (Bowie and Barlow - after the vampire in Salem's Lot).  We've never had 2 from the same liter together so I don't know if that will happen or not.

10. I WENT TO JUNIOR PROM WITH MY FRIEND KENNY.  Get it "Barbie and Ken."  Lots of jokes ensued.

So there you have it!  Some interesting new, and not-so-new tidbits about me and The Farm.


  1. I feel your pain on the name...I have never really talked with anyone named Adam for the same reason. Once we had a TV production class together and the teacher thought it was super cute to make us do the report reading and as we close "I'm Adam" "and I'm Eve and that was your daily report" I politely advised that I would not read the report anymore lol

  2. Awesome:-) I'm the same with the introvert thing. I can pretend really well when I have to that I'm a well adjusted person, and most people don't catch on.

  3. This is a great post Barb. How lucky that you still have your grandfather in your life. Both of mine passed away before I ever had a chance to meet them (they lived in a different country). I love the names you picked out for your boxers! So cute!

  4. SK is my favorite author too! Ooo I love What Dreams May Come. The movie and the book for me. Great to get to know more about you Barb!! ❤️

  5. Haha, I love your #10 fact. And aww, I love that your best friends are your husband and your grandfather. I've always been one of those outgoing introverts, so I'm pretty sure most people think I'm actually an extrovert o.0 It was fun getting to know more about you!
