Three Truths and a Lie with Ruth Hartman

This week Astraea Press author Ruth Hartman joins us on the blog with her truths...and the big fat lie :) See if you can guess the fib by this Better Than Catnip author :)





I'm afraid of sparklers.

When I was 17, a man offered 51 camels to my dad, asking if he could marry me.

I adore clowns.

The night I met my husband, I won a dance contest.

  1. I would like to say #2 is the lie, but it seems so absurd that it could be true. I'm going to say #3.

  3. Kay Springsteen said: It's either #1 or #3, so I'm going with #3 - no sane person adores clowns.

  4. I'd soooo love to play, but since my husband and I just spent the evening with Ruth and her hubby, I have an unfair advantage! But these are GREAT!

  8. I don't have a clue which one is the lie, but #2 would make a great novel. :)

  9. I think the lie is that you adore clowns... no one likes clowns ;) (not to offend the clowns out there)

  12. When I waws 17, I went with my dad on a church tour trip to the Holy Land. We were all sitting in a restaurant and some man just walked up to my dad and said he'd pay 51 camels for me. With a straight face, my dad said, " I won't take less than 52" The man walked away.

    1. Guess you're lucky the guy didn't agree to it... LOL (Though trying to picture your dad getting 52 camels back to the US is hilarious. How do you explain THAT to Customs?)

  13. I know, Jeanne. After the man walked away, I'm like, "Dad, what if he'd said okay to 52?". He just started laughing. Preachers and their warped senses of humor!
