Sunshine Blogger Award: Thank you so much to Charlene from Curiosity and Confession for nominating my blog!! I think it’s so great when blogger love is dispensed around the blogosphere.
I feel so happy I could run through the meadow like Julia Andrews… ok, I’m probably more like Carrie from Little House on the Prairie tripping as I fall down the hill… But hey, learning to fall down and get back up as gracefully as possible has become my hallmark!

My Answers to Charlene’s questions:
🦋 Where do you get your news? Mostly local TV stations and sometimes evening World News programs like with Lester Holt.
🦋 If your job gave you a surprise paid three days off, what would you do those three days? If money was no object I would take what the Brits call a mini-break, which would probably involve staying in a hotel by the beach or something.
🦋 What is something that you resent paying for? Wow, almost everything. Wouldn’t it be nice not to need money at all? Greed and corruption always get in the way though… just look at what happened to communism.
🦋 What is the most expensive thing you have broken? I don’t have a lot of expensive things cuz I’m always tragically poor so I’m going to say a car. Easy to do with an old car.
🦋 What was cool when you were younger, but is not cool now? OMG, I’m a child of the 80s so LOTS of things… hair bands, glam metal, all your favorite music on mixed cassette tapes, leg warmers, giant hoop earrings, parachute pants, owning a walkman, boom boxes, ratted hair, shoulder pads… I could go on and on but I won’t.
🦋 What is something that no matter how evolved we become will always be popular? Food and humor!
🦋 Who do you go out of your way to be nice to? Everyone. Some people make that difficult but I still try.
🦋 Who was your craziest/ most interesting teacher? What grade did they teach? My very first college creative writing teacher, Mr. Michael Sowder. He’s the one that advised us to be like Walt Whitman and love everything we possibly can. Never forgot that. He was always encouraging and accepting. He could provide constructive feedback but never made you feel stupid or like you were beneath him or not as smart as him. Such rare qualities in a teacher.
🦋 What are some red flags to watch out for in your daily life? Mean people, sociopaths, narcissists.
🦋 What actor/actress plays the same role in almost every movie or show they do?Lol, all those villian character actors like Gary Oldman (he played Dracula and Lee Harvey Oswald) or Jeremy Irons (Die Hard, Scar).
🦋 What protagonist from book or movie would make the worst roommate or spouse? Annie Wilkes from Misery (which was made into a movie, so both!)
- 🦋 Are you more inclined to cook at home or dine out (or let other people cook)?
- 🦋 What is your favorite flower?
- 🦋 Do you have a favorite dumb joke, if so what is it?
- 🦋 What was cool when you were younger, but is not cool now?
- 🦋 What celebrity do you most admire and why?
- 🦋 What is the best place you have ever visited?
- 🦋 What are some red flags to watch out for in your daily life?
