Complete this sentence: This sandwich could really use some …

This sandwich could really use some more tomatoes, bacon, and mayonnaise. Maybe another shake –or-two (or three-or-four) of black pepper.

What is your least favorite candy?

Anything that has chocolate and caramel, or chocolate and peanuts, I love.

My least favorites…

  • Licorice
  • Jolly Ranchers
  • Gobstoppers
  • Skittles
  • Rock Candies

What sign are you? Do you believe in astrology? 

I do not do the astrology sign stuff.

I notice the signs I see around my house.

If there are dishes left out that I find the next morning, apparently I have had a burglar in the house who helped themselves to my pantry supplies and cooked a meal. I always clean up my clutter before I go to bed.

If the lawn in my yard becomes a little shaggy before its every-nine-day-mow is due, then I am certain that one of the neighbors is trying to pull a trick on me by sprinkling Miracle Grow around my yard.

If my bed is unmade when I return to my room after I get off work, that blasted monster-under-my-bed that I had thought I had left at my parent’s house has once again tracked me down and is trying to lay blame on me for things I assuredly did not do!

Hang on, there’s a knock on my door. Seems that there are three men all dressed in white that want to talk to me. Oh. They’ve brought me a new lovely suit. I think they said it’s a straight-jacket. I wonder how they knew my size?

If you were given $22 million tax free dollars (any currency), what is the first thing you would do?

  • Finish my current dream house renovations and add on a screened back porch
  • Start a scholarship fund for students
  • Find some property nest to the National Forest with a stream and a pond as my summer writing cove
  • Buy the three vehicles I have yet to own
  • Sell my current dream house and move to my writing cove
  • Vacation to my favorite archeological hot spots for research for my writing

In what do you find the simplest of joys?

  • Watching a bird take a bath
  • The smell of freshly cut grass
  • A short hike on a cooled forest trail
  • Shooting stars
  • An unexpected phone call from a friend

What would be your ideal birthday present, and why?

My ideal birthday present would be to have my backyard bird sanctuary ready for June. (I celebrate FOUR birthdays a year- one for each season.) It’s not my fault that I like birthday cake!

  • Do you use paper money? If so is your money organized sequentially according to denomination?
  • You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?
  • What is your greatest strength?


Do you use paper money? If so is your money organized sequentially according to denomination?

I give myself an allowance in cash each week. I usually keep it in sequential order. Everything else, Mr. Credit Card takes care of.

Since I am now of the golden years, and was used to a world before credit cards… I am not sure which one is better. I used to think that only cash was by far the better choice. Now, I think I use the credit card like I used to use only cash. I am always aware of each month’s expenditures.

You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?

I don’t think I ever do nothing. My do nothing times are now Netflixing and reading… both of which can be used to fill space just like accomplishing nothing.

I think do nothing is a different kind of time. Do Nothing means that you are actually having some reflection time for what is now called self-actualization.

I think this kind of do nothing is far underrated!!!

What is your greatest strength?

My greatest strength…

  • My charm
  • My enthusiasm
  • My determination
  • My courage
  • My creativity
  • My dedication
  • My flexibility
  • My patience
  • My friendliness
  • My stamina
  •  My fortitude
  • My punctuality

I could go on forever!

Or I could conclude the list…

  • My ability to exaggerate?

  • What is your favorite color of hair? You can name your hair color or a color that you just like.
  • List at least 5 things that you are good at.
  • What is your favorite animal or type of animal? (pets, dolphins, stuffed, wild cats, etc)
  • What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  


What is your favorite color of hair?

I have always had coal black hair… from birth… according to my parents.

I am not into a lot of dyes and eccentric coloring. I am OK wiht the on other people- not me.

I do like designs cut into the hair. I have only had a few done. They were done as classroom rewards. (Remember, I used to teach Language Arts: Middle School.)

Of I had to pick a new hair color for me- I would go wiht pure white. Not the gray-white. I would want white-white.

List at least 5 things that you are good at.

It is easier for me to be truthful about the things that I am not too great at doing. (Not because I am super-awesome at other things I just do not like boasting?)

  • I do not fingerpick the guitar very well. And I cannot seem to learn the banjo at at all.
  • I stink at being consistent with practicing the piano. I like to play. I just find other things to do instead of practice.
  • I want to learn another language- or more! I fail to put in the time to practice the mastery-time needed for that as well.
  • I am getting better at eating at home. I prefer to eat at home. I just hate the time-involvement needed to prepare a quality meal.
  • I stink at completing chores. Again, the ability to follow through to complete them. I am OK at starting them.

I think I notice a pattern… BUT DON”T TELL!

What is your favorite animal or type of animal? 

My favorite pet is a dog… closely followed by a cat.

If I go to the zoo, I will spend AS MUCH TIME AS POSSIBLE on the weird-shaped-ones. (Yes, that is offensive to the politically-correct animal police! Not my fault… You asked the question!!! )

I love watching the monkeys and tigers and lions and elephants and rhinos and hippos… but you have to take time for the truly special.

The Japanese Spider Crab… The Star-Nosed Mole… and the Smiley-Faced Salamander.
