Could you have any more nicknames? An archivist? Can Michael where his hat to the next ward activity?

Cami said...

Man, you've been to a lot of places. And also have had a lot of nicknames! And jobs! Sheesh! I have put off doing this one because it all just seems so piddly compared to everyone else. Then YOU did it!! Man, you win the prize.

Jenni said...

The folklore archivist is seriously impressive - what a cool job!! Love all the nicknames! It's so fun to get to know you even better!! :)

Brenda said...

Hey Mockers! Can I call you that from now on? (:
Loved to hear about you!

Jann said...

O.K. I have to ask, Globe-Miami as a vacation? Seriously? I thought people just drove through there to get to Mesa. We got stuck in Globe once when it was snowing. That was not fun. You must know someone there.

It was fun to learn a little more about you.

Christie said...

Wow, you are well traveled! I am impressed. I bet your most recent trip added a few to that list.

Mendy said...


Yes, my mom was raised in Globe-Miami. Everytime we go we thank her for leaving the day after she graduated from high school!


You would think! I read through the list and the only new location I added because of this summer's super drive is Iowa. Crazy, huh?

Kellie said...

I think that from now on, I will just call you the Mangler. I actually know what that is from my sewing and tailoring days, and the name is appropriate. It was very fun to get to know you even better.
