Now for the Questions:
1. If you could compete in one Olympic event (not necessarily winter sports) what would it be?
I love the figure skating, it is such an art and the movements are so graceful and so fluid. Of course I must confess I cannot skate even 2 feet, weak ankles, that is my story and I am sticking to it! Plus I would be like a bull in a china cabinet; grace is not my middle name.
2. Do you remember a specific Olympic moment from the past?
When Dorothy Hamill won the gold for skating in 1976. She was so elegant and made it look so easy. And she had a cute hairstyle…lolol.
3. Have you ever known anyone who competed in the Olympics?
No, can’t say that I have.
4. If everyday activities were Olympic-worthy, which activity would you have a gold medal in?
I knew I should never ask my hubby… his first response was sleeping. The Nerve, then he started laughing. He said my smile. I am always smiling. You know you can smile with gritted teeth behind, like right now. lolol
5. Do you know anything about your ethnic heritage?
Yes, Genealogy is sooo addictive. My mom’s paternal side I have the main line back to the year 0194 –Sweden, and English, King Henry I was in our lineage. They came to America around 1637 from England. Still working on her maternal side. I know there is Cherokee Indian involved on that side. I am still working on my Dad’s side.
6. Do you enjoy sleeping late?
Is that not what you are supposed to do when you no longer work. I am usually up till 1 or 2 o’clock a.m. and usually sleep until 10. If we have something planned of course I get up early, but usually we just take it a day at a time.
7. Have you ever performed CPR on anyone? Do you know how? (Yes, that's two, I know. Whatevs.)
I have never had to perform CPR. I used to be certified probably 25 years ago.
8. Name one country you'd like to visit and explain why.
I would love to visit Bethlehem, Jerusalem area. Would love to walk where Jesus walked. I think that would be awesome. I would also like to visit Germany, because that is where my hubby is from and there is actually supposed to be a town called Fastenau. My dad was also in Germany during WWII. I know, I know you just said one country but hey it’s my answer.
9. Have you ever fixed up a couple romantically?
I did introduce one of my nephews to one of my friends. They had both just come out of divorces. They ended up getting married. I never talk to either one of them anymore… hmm you think that has something to do with it?
10. What is the last book you read?
Besides the bible – Sisterchicks in Wooden Shoes. A very good fun book, and if you would like to read it check out Monday’s post.
11. My Question: If you could do anything different in your life what would it be?
I would listen to my mom and older relatives when they wanted to talk about their grandparents and their lives as kids. I would ask questions. I would ask my mom why she never told me that Granny had a different mom than her brothers and sisters, and if granny ever talked about it. Does anyone know why she left? I would ask if my mom or her sisters and brothers ever knew anything about their blood grandma. So many questions…
12. What is your favorite meal at your favorite restaurant?
I love going out for a good steak. We go to Lonestar here in Springfield on occasions. The Filet Mignon is excellent. And Mike’s in Conway AR has very good Prime Rib.
There they are my answers. That was fun. Thanks Linda!
