Awww, A Sunshine Blog Award for Me!

Wow, Mrs. Melissa thought I deserved a blog award.  We have been reading each other's blogs for a few months now and get this, she's ALL the way in Australia.  She is an exceptional woman who has come along way.  Check her blog out and show her some love.
As part of theSunshine Blogger AwardI must answer 10 Questions from Mrs. Melissa.
I must also give 10 questions for 10-12 others to answer. So here goes...

1. What is your middle name and do you like it?
My middle name is Jo and my whole life I have never liked it.  There was only one person that called me Jo instead of Tricia and that was my Papaw.  Once he had gone to Heaven, I LOVED my middle name and missed him daily.  My Dad gave my this middle name after Joe Namath and I passed it on to my daughter.
2. Do you have a good relationship with your parents?  
Absolutely!  My husband and I spend a ton of time with them and only live three miles from them.
3. What is your favorite Charity?
Since having my first born 15 weeks early, the March of Dimes has always been dear to my heart.  At his funeral in lieu of flowers we wanted donations made to March of Dimes in his name.  Since the diagnosis of Autism for my almost two year old, Autism Speaks has become a key charity in my home.  There is an app for walking that donates to the charity of your choosing, Charity Miles.
4. What kind of pet did you have as a child?
There hasn't been a time in my life that I haven't had a dog.
5. Do you watch Dr Phil?
I use too, but haven't had the time lately.
6. Do you Ebay?
Oh yes, are there still people out there that don't?
7. What was the last book you read?
Besides a school text book it was Hiding From Reality by Taylor Armstrong.
8. Gmail, Yahoo or Hotmail?
Well, Gmail only because I had to make an account to make my blog, however I have never checked it as my blog is linked to my personal email.
9. Gold or Silver Jewelry? 
White Gold or Sterling Silver
10. Your favorite childhood toy?
I had a horse that I bounced on, or as my dad said, "rode a million miles on."  This is embarrassing, but my parents would say, "Ride them cow patty."  Because my name is Patricia, yes I'm fully aware of what a "cow patty" is.
