I have learned from both; however, unfortunately, I think I have learned more from failures. At least I am more aware of what I have learned from them.
2. What did you call your grandparents when you were growing up? If you have children, what do they call your parents? If you have grandchildren, what do they call you?
We used to call our grandparents Dawdy and Mommie and our children call both sets of their grandparents the same. I suppose it's an Amish thing. However when ever we wrote letters to them we addressed them as Grandpa and Grandma.
3. You're invited to a luau. In keeping with that theme, what dish will you bring to share?
Hawaiian Rolls and a Pineapple Upside Down Cake
4. Besides Jesus, what one person's life story do you think everyone should know about?
I think everyone should know the life story of Corrie ten Boom.
5. "Don't sweat the small stuff." Agree or Disagree? Why?
Agree. I don't want to get irritated and agitated at all the little stuff. And if I do get irritated I don't want to dwell on it. Life is too short to allow small things to rob me of the happiness I could have.
6. June is National Rivers Month. When were you last on a river? What's the prettiest river you've ever seen? What's a river you'd like to see?
I had a ride on The Maid of the Mist on the Niagara eleven years ago. The prettiest river I have ever seen is probably the Niagara with the Ohiopyle coming in second. I'm not a water person, but I do think it would be fun to see the Jordan River.
7. Speaking of rivers- paddling, fishing, swimming, or bird watching safely from the shore? Which activity would you choose? Yes-you have to choose.
I would choose bird watching safely from the shore. It's bad enough when I have to cross a bridge so paddling and swimming are definitely out. I'm not a fan of fishing either. Casting a line and reeling it in is okay, but baiting a hook and removing any fish that happen to get caught is not my thing.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Keeping with the river theme. The prettiest start of a river I have ever seen is Big Spring.
