I Have Arrived. I've Been Tagged for a Meme

I was tagged by Daisy for a Seven things meme:
* Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.

* Share 6 / 7 facts about yourself on your blog - some random, some weird.

* Tag 6/ 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blog.

* Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog

1. When JFK was shot, I can remember a boy in my class who cried. I can still remember his name. But the main thing I recall is how impressed I was that he took it so personally. We were 10.

2. I used to have cats as pets; now I'm allergic to them.

3. I have three tattoos, which I got in 1978, 1983 and 1984 respectively, before they were trendy.

4. I've lived in Miami, Las Vegas, Fort Wayne, several cities in NJ and several in CA. Now I live in Rome Italy.

5. My kids, who are 12, 9 and 4 and a half, speak three languages, Turkish, Italian and English, in that order. Their mother tongue is Turkish, literally because my wife is from Turkey.

6. I jumped out a perfectly good airplane two times - with a parachute.

7. I went to university in my mid-thirties and studied Classics and Philosophy. Great stuff.

I hope some of my friends would like to come out and play. I'm tagging
Weer'd, Principe, Earl, Slyde, Mimi, Vicki and White Rabbit.
