Before I do my Fun Friday quiz, please take moment to remember all the people who died on 09/11 in the terrorist attacks. I can vividly remember what I was doing that day, and watching the second plane crash into the Twin Towers. It was horrifying to say the least. I might have never paid any attention to it, other than I was at work, and one of the doctors who adamantly told us every day how much she hated TV, was staring at the TV. Of course I was curious what she was looking at. So I asked her Dr Rund, what are you watching? She said a plane just crashed into a skyscraper, having no idea it was a terrorist attack. As we stood there talking to each other, the second plane struck. Because I was at work, and my son was at daycare it made it all the more unnerving. A terrible day in the history of this country, and a day I know I will never forget.
OK now on to more fun things, Fun Friday. Today I picked a short, and sweet quiz, to tell you which Birthday flower I am. Mine is a Gladiola, a beautifully stunning flower. I always find astrology type things, so accurate to my personality. It is funny.
