Saturday Nght Genealogy Fun - Other Interests

Randy Seaver at Genea-Musings posts a weekly "Saturday Night Genealogy Fun" challenge for bloggers. I've enjoyed reading these for some time now but this is my 1st time to actually participate! Today's mission is: "Tell us about your "other" hobbies or interests outside of genealogy and family history research, writing, speaking, etc."

My other interests (in no particular order) include:
  • Travel, especially cruising. Just got back from my 9th cruise a week before Christmas.


  • The Beach. That means Pawleys Island or nearby Litchfield Beach in South Carolina. Starting April 25th, I'll spend two weeks enjoying this view at Pawleys.




  • University of Kentucky Basketball. I was born a Wildcat basketball fan. (Come Monday the Cats will be the #1 team in the nation so watching the Big Blue has been big fun so far this season.)
  • University of Kentucky Football. I developed into a Wildcat football fan. This fall will be my 21st year as a season ticket holder. For many of those years, football was just a social occasion (tailgating way more fun than games) but that's changing.
  • Audio Books. If I'm sitting down, I should be working on genealogy so my "reading" has turned into "listening". With books loaded to my iPod, I can listen in the car, on the beach, doing housework, at the gym, etc. Favorite authors include James Patterson, Janet Evanovich (Stephanie Plum series), Mary Higgins Clark, David Baldacci, John Grisham, Richard North Patterson and Chelsea Cain.

  1. What beautiful photographs, Linda. And, I too like audio books - especially good for those filing days!

  2. Thanks. If you saw my office, you'd know why I didn't think of filing. :)

  3. Lovely photographs. Another South Carolina beach lover here. We have rented a house at Edisto through the years and I visit my daughter in Charleston often.
