Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Well, I am married to Brent, the love of my life. We have one child, a daughter who is ummmm 29, yes 29. Beth-Marie is married to Terry and has 2 kids and one MORE on the way, which we are thrilled about.
I am a army brat...and for those who know me in
DOMSY -- a real handful. I worked up to 2000 and then retired to be a gameolic with Eliters due to health reasons.
What do you like to do away from the computer?
I do lots of crafts. I am into beading, sewing, floral design, wedding design, scrapbooking, ceramics, and anything else that catches my eyes. I also like to go out with friends to dinner.
How did you pick your Eliters' Name?
BAMS = hubbys intials and ladybugs are what I collect
Is this your one and only?
Nope before that I was known as Brentsladybug, then when our
grandchild was born I changed it so I could TD while in Texas helping daughter out with the baby back in 2001. I didnt know to combine it..hehehe. I just started with BamsLadyBug which is how I should of spelled it instead of all caps. Can we get that changed in Eliters? mmmmm...gotta ask around on that! You, think Issa might be able to do that for this ole lady? I hate all caps. I almost got 10,000th game in domsY...cant wait for that!
And in pogo Eliters knows me as Nana2KayLee01, *waves to the folks in bowlingP, domsP,and cribP*.
What is your preferred play site?
Yahoo. It takes me too long to figure out the new game sites, and I work myself up into a TIZZY.
What made you keep coming back to Eliters?
Well, one thing is I have a large bunch of friends that I really care about in domsY. There are so many that I get tickled pink when they come back to visit. I can hardly stand it.
How long have you played games online?
6 years or so now.
What games do you play?
DomsY. CribY thanks to RickUSMC and Ron who had enough
patience with me to teach me that game. Canasta with
Broadslady/Uta and Trubble when they are around. Bowling Pogo
with Paula and Goofymeister.
And what is your favorite game and why?
DomsY - its the first game I ever learned on line and it's like your first love -- you never forget that! OR the folks that had the patience to teach ya.
Have you learned any new games since being a part of Eliters?
Yeppers, a lot. I learned cribbage this year and pool with
BearMusic a couple of years ago....hehehe. I bet if you ask
him, he will tell you about that story. Poor man is a saint to try to teach me that game.
MMM...ConcreteBuzz in Literati will tell you that I stink there. I am the queen of 3 letter words! hehehehe
Spades...well Sunny and Miller ole #96 will tell you I'm no good in that. If it's a Partners game, watch Miller RUN ...hahaha! Everywhere I go there is someone that has touched me in Eliters. *huge smile*
What positions have you held in Eliters, and is there anything that you haven't done that you'd like to?
Have been a TD in DomsY. Generally speaking, the only thing I really wanna do is play. I just wanna have fun.
Who is the one person that you can say has helped you the most
Gosh there are so many folks that I would leave someone out. They know who they are and who warms my heart when I see their names in blue.
In your opinion, what makes Eliters different from other leagues?
Well truthful speaking when you are a newbie, it's the friendly chatter and banter with the TD and the players. And if it's not there it's boring! So KEEP up dah Nonsense and be a Nut. =-)
What in your opinion is the best thing about Eliters?
Friends...mainly the friends you get when you stick around and
open your heart up.
If you had one wish what would it be?
That we all could just get along, be peaceful and show kindness to one another.
If you could only use one sentence to describe the way you feel about Eliters, to a prospective new player, what would it be?
Ohhh just try it. If it's not what you think you need, move on. If it is, stay awhile put your feet up. Relax. Have fun. I can't do that in one sentence *hands on my fat hips* sheeesh that's impossible for me.
What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player, online or at a live event.
Ohhh I have quite a few. The best one was when I was playing in spades and couldn't find a partner. Miller told me he was #96 on my list, and when I got to 95 I could IM him and get him as a Partner. Now you all know how competitive Miller is...hahahaha *shakes her head at that memory*. I told him # 95 was dead and he was UP....hahahaha. He ran through the lobby yelling NOOO NOOOO....hehehe. Lucky for me he took pity and granted my wish. He became my partner, and I lost the game for us. hahahaha...in the finals! *hangs her head* Poor Miller became my buddy in spades and every chance I get I hollar #96! Gosh I luv that man! hehehehe... and his lovely wife Sunny. What a blessing to know them both.
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters.
Well...mmm...there was one time in domY that CCBabe,
Dusty, Paula, Halifax, Flawsey, Pmroadrunner, and I were "cutting up soo bad" and laughing so hard that we were all in stitches. I told them I was buying depends for them all. We depend on depends in domsY!
That and the "butt fluff" thing with Dusty/Kim that we both used to do in DomsY and SpadeY. That's a hoot and a half to do. It was a great gut buster in spades during the late
nite marathon. hehehe
The most embarrassing thing, that you can talk about of course.
Well one time I was talking in the lobby to Count, and we were
laughing and cutting up, as usual. So imagine my surprise when I left off one letter in his name. I thought the whole lobby was going to die. I felt horrible. He such a good man, and I wanted to hide. But looking back...I survived the "fumble fingers" and the typo, and made a great friend out of it!
If you could be one person for a day, who would you be and why?
Mary Magdalene. She has a strong sense of faith, a
woman that followed her heart and understood her destiny. She
You are stranded on a deserted island, no internet, no phone, no TV, walking along the beach, you come across...
Hopefully a boat with a well tuned motor, no damage whatsoever with it, and some motion sickness pills... or a White Russian/ Cosmo. It could happen ya know.
How do you pass the time on your drive to and from work?
I don't drive. I am the "NAGigator", just ask Brent...hehehehehe.
What is your favorite book/author?
Father Arseny: A Cloud of Witnesses
What is your guiltiest pleasure?
White Russian and Cosmos
When I grow up I want to be just like:
My Mama -- an Irish Lass that knew how to love and serve others.
Any last words for our readers?
Be kind to one another, and always "pay it forward." If you wanna see a movie that is a great family show, watch that movie, "Pay it forward". Keep your family close to your hearts and strong sense of belief in God and the good of others.
