This week Don has been in Tennessee again working, kinda like he’s done for the past several weeks! Last week I had bible school and pretty much had to stay here but this week I had nothing so I could run to Jackson and see Stacy & Tim; of course shopping was a reason to go too! Yesterday after Stacy & I had been gone for most of the day Tim called to tell her that he was on his way to the driving range. She passed the phone to me because she thought Tim could talk me into staying another night…..I started right in with saying something and for a few seconds I think Tim didn’t know if he was talking to Stacy or me! He’s only been married to her for like 11 years I think. People have told us for a long time that we sound alike.
Annie recently left Stacy a comment saying that we will say the same things in comments but in a bit different way. If she thinks we sound alike in comments I guess she should hear us in person! I don’t think we sound that much alike but I don’t Like to listen to my voice much either. The few times I’ve heard myself on the answering machine I don’t think it sounds like me at all! I didn’t like doing the outgoing message on our phone, I made Don record it!
Do you like to hear your voice recorded? Do you sound like anyone else? (Ok sorry Stacy, I know asking questions & question of the day is your kind of thing but I don’t do it often! You might can still use this idea or tweak it some for you later on….and surely I finally used a song you know!)

(We might have shopped and bought just a bit too much! But had fun. Gotta run get my hair done this morning but might be back later.)

    That’s great that you two get to spend some time together. I grew up with just brothers and for the most part I don’t really know what I missed. But when I hear about things like this, I get a glimpse of what it would be like to have a sister!

    Do I sound like anyone else? No, I don’t think so. But as each of my boys has gone through their voice changing, people often mistake them for me on the phone! They feel so bad, but the boys and I just laugh. (Well, I do, I think LUke is getting a bit tired of it:)

    And I do NOT like the sound of my own voice! I think between moving from NEw Jersey to Colorado at a young age, I ended up with a very weird way of pronouncing things — I think I need a voice coach!

  2. Dawn P Says:

    What a neat question and I’m glad you and Stacy had fun shopping! I bet you two had so much fun 🙂

    Now my voice..no I can’t stand to hear my voice. I called the office the other night to leave myself a voice message so I wouldn’t forget something I needed to do and I hated listening to my voice recording. I could re-record it but it wouldn’t help!

    Hope you’re having a great week 🙂

  3. Dawn Says:

    I’m not crazy about my voice. I do sound exactly like my mother on the phone though.

  4. Lauren@Baseballs&Bows Says:

    Sounds like you two have a great relationship. I never liked hearing myself sing on a recording, but I don’t mind talking. Have a great day!

  5. Stacy Says:

    Well, lookie here, you talked about me in a blog post, LOL! 🙂 You *know* that we sound just alike, Gail. We think alike, we dress alike, we act and react alike, for the most part. We like the same foods and we like doing the same kinds of things. I’ve said for years that we could have been twins if it weren’t for those years between our births!

    As for my voice, no, I don’t like hearing it. It’s weird, it doesn’t sound to me like I think I sound. I’ve heard myself on the radio when I’ve won stuff and I’m like “that is SO not my voice”. Same thing on an answering machine. I always think, that can’t be me, that doesn’t sound anything like me!

    Tim and I are really glad you came! I had fun too, and you’ll have to come back the next chance you get. We can always go to Target again, hehehe!

    P.S. Yes, I do know the title for this one and that song and I even own the whole album! I love Bonnie Raitt and have several of her CD’s 🙂 I even saw her in concert years ago, with Bruce Hornsby, back in the late 80’s or early 90’s when they were both pretty popular. Hmmm, maybe I need to go download some Hornsby from iTunes… the only music I had of his was on (*gasp*) cassette tape!

  7. Southern Girl Says:

    I HATE to hear my recorded voice! I have this fear that I really do sound like that (kinda nasal and child-like) to everyone else. Ack!

    And I know that song, too! Bonnie Raitt rocks!

  8. Lynne Says:

    I hate to hear my voice. I never realized I had such a Philadelphia accent until I heard my voice on a tape. Yuck!

  9. Stacy (the other one) Says:

    I hate the sound of my own voice. Jeff has a wonderful voice since he was on the radio (and still uses the radios on planes) he has to have a nice clear one.

    Hey Gail,
    Funny that you brought this up today… I left a message for Judi and then she left one for me and we were talking about how we sound so different. I am mistaken for my 9 year old on the phone… telemarketers always ask for my mother, and Judi sounded very southern to me…:) I told her I wish we had our voice welcoming people to our blogs so I could hear everyone.

  11. Tammy Says:

    I sound like a little girl, actually. 🙂

    But I like what the last replier, Annie, just said…wish they had a special feature we could download so we could all hear each other’s voices!

  12. kreed Says:

    Sounds like you two had fun!

    I always think my voice sounds strange – fortunately I don’t have to hear myself recorded very often!

  13. annie Says:

    you rock! (come see, but scroll past amanda’s canada pics)

  14. Debi Says:

    I absolutely, positively hate hearing my voice on tape! It always makes me cringe. People always get me and my mom’s voices confused, though to my ear we sound nothing alike. And last week someone called and asked me if my dad was here (they thought I was Annie!)…that was kinda funny.

  15. Judi Says:

    I hate to hear my voice. Yuck. I do sound EXACTLY like my twin sister. It was chaos when we both lived at home let me tell ya!
