1. What do you think about luck?
I don't believe in luck. I believe in blessings from God and the law of sowing and reaping.
2. Not counting your own backyard, what's a favorite green space in your town, city, or state?
One of my favorite places to visit is absolutely gorgeous during the warmer months. Following a narrow footpath through acres of fens and then through meadows with wildflowers, past the crumbling stone foundation of what must have been a mansion back in the early days of our country, all the way back to a lake filled with sparkling clear water. The grass on the banks is so soft, and provides a delightful place to sit and simply soak in all the beauty while the children go wading.
3. How do you make your life more complex than it needs to be?
I don't think I do. I enjoy simplicity and try to keep my life that way.
4. I read here the three places you should visit with friends. They are-New York City, Hawaii, and Amsterdam (rent a bike, walk along the canal, visit one of their world class museums). I felt the need to expound on that one. Moving on...Of the three places listed which would you most like to visit with friends? What's one place not on the list you think should be visited with friends?
None of those places really appeal to me, so I would probably need friends to go with me to even consider visiting them. Hawaii does sound nice, and I'd like to see it, but there is no way I want to fly, and forget about even suggesting a boat might be a possibility.
5. What's the last live performance you saw? On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being best) how would you rate it?
Does a Christmas pageant count? I think I'll refrain from rating it.
6. March 14th is National Potato Chip Day. Are you a fan? Your favorite flavor? Besides potato, what's your favorite chip type of snack?
I am a fan of potato chips, but I hardly ever have any. My favorite flavor is simply the plain original chips, preferably the wavy cut.
7.What rule is most important in your home?
Clean up after yourself ....... no, not really, though that is something we do. The most important one is treating each other with kindness and respect.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
The lamp I used to keep beside my chair in the living room gave us a little scare. After having it for ten years, maybe it was beginning to feel as if we take it for granted or something, because it grabbed our attention by cracking loudly. I though the light bulb might have blown, but it was still fine. Upon further inspection we discovered that it had caught on fire. Thankfully the fire went out almost immediately and only scorched the doily the lamp had been setting on. We chucked it and I'm now liking the new lamp I have, though I seem to have some trust issues since the episode with the old lamp.
