Question and Answer Time

OK, it's time to answer those questions that I received.  

1. Comes from Meg at; inquestoftruth

If you were given three wishes....and they had to be realistic wishes, not "a lucky charm to give me everything I wished for" or unlikely events such as "world peace,"  what would you wish for?  

1. Physical healing for my family members and friends that need it.

2. Spiritual healing for the world (which would bring World Peace)

3. That everyone would have a boss that was fair and treated their employees with respect & dignity.  Seems like there's not much of that around these days.


2. Comes from Krissy at; SometimesIThink

           1.Do you like SPAM? The kind in the little can or the electronic kind we get  bombarded with?  The answer is NO to both.
           2. If you had lots of time to do volunteer work, where would you do it (who would you volunteer for)?  Either Crisis Pregnancy Center (now called CareNet locally) or a local Christian school.
           3. What's your favorite movie? My all time favorite has to be "Blood Alley" because John Wayne and Lauren Bacall were filming that movie when I met them in 1955.

           4.What would you do with a million dollars if you suddenly got it in a fair manner? First I would give to my church and local worthy charities.  Then I'd share it with my family first and if there was any left over I'd send you all plane tickets and we could all meet "somewhere in the middle" and see each other face to face.  Wouldn't that be fun?
          5. Do you like housework?  I really don't mind's just that with working full time I get behind, I just don't have as much energy as I used to.
          6. Do you like to iron?  I know if my mom were alive, she'd never believe me, but I really don't mind it.  It's a time when I can put a movie in and get the job done while being entertained.  As a kid back in the 50's I had to iron handkerchiefs, pillow cases and the tops of the sheets.  And everything had to be sprinkled with water first, then rolled up and sometimes I'd forget the stuff for a few days & everything would get covered in mildew, then my mom would have to wash it again and she would not be happy. Oh, those were the good old days!!

        7. Are you a FlyLady?  I guess I don't really understand this one...if you mean do I like to, not really (I'd take the train to our rendezvous).  But I have done it and I'll probably do it again, if I need to.

3. Comes from Betty at; lv2trnscrb

I know you have lived in the Pacific Northwest for the majority of your life. Have you ever thought of living somewhere else and if so where?  

Even tho I'm not well traveled, I've read and heard about a lot of other areas in our great country.  I don't think I would ever live anywhere else, except in Arizona or somewhere like that in the dead of winter.  The Pacific Northwest has fairly mild weather and we don't have tornados or hurricanes.  No poisonous bugs or snakes.  And from where I am, in a little over two hours you can be up at Mt Rainier, over at the Pacific Ocean, up in British Columbia (about 5 hours for that trip), over in Eastern Washington's desert country and wheat fields, or down on the Oregon border at the mighty Columbia River.  What more could you ask for?

4. Comes from Jeannette at; JeannettesJottings

If you could have the past back again, what is the ONE thing that you would change and why?     I would definitely have done better in school.  In high school especially, I sort of just skimmed thru.  I didn't take any college prep classes because I had no desire to go to "more school"  and then when I was faced with supporting myself, I really didn't have any training to get anything but office type jobs that pay low wages.  And I would have spent more time with my grandma and my parents as they got older.  Even tho they were here in the same town, I busy with my family and working, etc, etc.  Then I turned around one day and they were gone. 

5. Comes from Kathy at; Yadayadayada

What souvenir are you going to buy for yourself when you go to Alaska?   I really don't know.  I've kind of gotten away from buying things that have to be dusted.  I know I'll get postcards to put in the scrap book I make of the trip.  And if something catches my eye, and it's not a kajillion dollars I may get it.  I once had a darling Eskimo doll (can't remember what happened to it) and if I see one that's reasonable, I may get one of those.

6. Last but not least from Robin at; These Are The Days of our Lives

Do you think you will ever marry again?  Would you want too?   

I believe that marriage is the most sacred relationship there is.  I would love to be married again if I could find that special person that had the same spiritual beliefs as I do and would be able to put up with this old lady...of course he'd be old too, so I guess I'd have to put up with him also.  LOL   My folks were the perfect example of a "marriage made in Heaven." They loved each other so much and found joy in their church work and everything that they did. So I had a good example to follow and I still feel very sad at times that my marriage did not work out.  I've now been single since 1982 and I still have hope.......but it's diminishing as the years go by.   

Whew!!!  That was tough but thanks, those were all good questions.   

I did better at my sale today, about $55 of course that included selling a Barbie for $20.  And Jeannette, I'm sorry...some guy bought the "101 Garden Questions" book today. None of the blouses or sweatshirts have sold maybe Sunday.  I am going to open up for just a few hours Sunday and then around 1pm starting putting the stuff away.  It got up to about 90 degrees in the carport today and tomorrow is supposed to be warmer.  And Monday is another work day, so will have to get ready for that.

Thanks again for the questions and I hope everyone is having a good weekend.  Until next time..............Linda
