Here is something fun. I stole it from Coco's Momma. Click on the link if you wish to see her answers.

Question 1: Do you have any pets ? Technically Isabella is my son's dog but she does live here.

Question 2: Name three things that are physically close to you: A bottle of water, the half of my sub that I have not put in the fridge yet, and my shoes that felt so good when I slipped them off.

Question 3: What's the weather like right now ?   Partly cloudy and about 79 degrees. Very nice.

Questions 4: Do you drive ? If so, have you crashed? I do drive. I have not crashed myself but someone crashed into my car.

Question 5: What time did you wake up this morning ? I woke up at about 9:30 and made myself get out of bed about 11:00 to watch the storm.

Question 6: When was the last time you showered ?  Sponge bath today. It was really storming.

Question 7: What was the last movie that you saw ?  Alice Through The Looking Glass.

Question 8: What does you last text message say?  No texting for me.

Question 9: What is your ringtone ? Ring, ring.

Question 10: Have you ever been to a different country? Only Canada.

Question 11: Do you like sushi?  I do not eat raw flesh... parasites you know.

Question 12: Where do you buy your groceries?   Walmart and Hy-Vee. It depends on what I need. Hy-Vee does the shopping for me and all I have to do is give them a call when I get there. They bring out my order and load it in my car.

Question 13: Have you ever taken any medication to help you fall asleep faster? Only a couple of times. They gave sleeping pills to all the mothers when my second son was born. We were up all night. You could hear the giggling up and down the floor all night.

Question 14: How many siblings do you have ?  I am the oldest of seven. There are only five of us still alive.

Question 15: Do you have a desktop computer or a laptop?  I bought a laptop when I moved here and I love it.

Question 16: How old will you be turning on your next birthday?  I will be 69 years old in a couple of months.

Question 17: Do you wear contacts or glasses ? I wear glasses. I cannot stand the thought of putting something foreign into my eyes.

Question 18: Do you color your hair ? No. Even at my age I still have very little gray hair. It is creeping in though.

Question 19: Tell me something you are planing to do today: I went to the grocery store earlier. Now I am watching the baseball game (so far we are ahead!). Then I will go to bed.

Question 20: When was the last time you cried?  When my ex-husband died a few years ago. I am fortunate to be a happy person.

Question 21: What is your perfect pizza topping? Either Hawaiian pizza (ham and pineapple) or a good veggie pizza.

Question 22: Which do you prefer, hamburger or cheeseburger ? I like cheeseburgers but I prefer a tavern burger.

Question 23: Have you ever had an all-nighter ? Much too often. I used to work the night shift.

Question 24: What is your eye color ? I have blue eyes.

Question 25: Can you taste the difference between Pepsi and Coke? I used to be able to but I no longer drink colas. I drink either water or iced tea.

Want to try your hand at this? I am sure Coco's Momma would not mind.


  1. It is always interesting to read the answers to questions like these, Emma. It provides a glimpse into your life which I enjoyed.

    It intrigues me that you can order your groceries and just pick them up. We can't do it here.

    1. You have no idea what a time saver it is. I buy my groceries for a month at a time. I do prefer to choose my own meat,and produce though. For that I will dash into the store and right out again.

  2. MMM a tavern sure sounds good to eat.I first called them loose meat.

    1. They are so much better than a regular loose meat though. But you know that.

  3. I like this post, Emma. I discover you are 2 years my senior and I have begun procedures to adopt you as my sister. Our kitchen phone plays the first 9 notes of Beethoven's "Für Elise" and displays all messages and names in French because we set it wrong 10 years back and don't know how to correct it. I have 3 biological siblings but have adopted correspondents and friends to that station over the years.

    1. I would be proud to be your big sister. My brother 2 years younger than me died in Viet Nam and the one 1 year younger than me dies of heart disease a few years ago. As anyone in a large family would say "The more the merrier." I do hope you understand French to be able to retrieve messages.

  4. These questions give me an impression of you, Emma - though through your blog I already had formed an idea. So you have blue eyes? I share the love to pizza Hawai (though every Italian will deplore that). And I am glad that you are a happy person - I feel that in your posts.

    1. At times I am one of those disgusting people who sees the good in everything. One of the reasons I am happy is because I have had a happy life. I always knew my family loved me and my parents raised us to be confident.

  5. So interesting! And I am like your commenter above, if you come from such a big family, surely you wouldn't mind having another sister! :-)

    1. I wouls love another sister. The more the merrier. Just be prepared. We are a very noisy family and it can take some getting used to.
