The thing I loved about summers of my childhood was the freedom, not only from school, but also from the constraints of
home. We had the freedom to roam the woods and have adventures. (Yes, there was even a stream.) It was a different time and my parents were not overly
concerned if we didn't arrive home for lunch. Supper was different; we'd better be home for supper!
2. Are you a fan of auto racing-NASCAR, Indy, Stock, Grand Prix, etc?
No I am not a fan. I don't dislike it; I just don't have an opinion about it either way. Sometimes I watch because someone else in the house does have an opinion.
Ever been to a race in person?
Yes, my hometown is next door to a race track that has hosted many events, including rock concerts. I used to attend
stock car races as a teen when my mother worked the concession stands.
Any desire to do this?
Do you know a lot about cars?
Do you notice particular makes and models when you're out and about?
No, the only thing I notice is that when
a friend or family member gets a new car, suddenly, I see that model all over the place.
3. What's something you think is too serious to be joked about?
There are many things too serious to be joked about —
the death of innocents comes to mind.
Or do you think anything and everything is fair game?
No, not everything. That said, I'm not a PC kind of gal and I can find humor in many things that others might find offensive.
4. July 29th is National Lasagna Day. Are you a fan?
Do you have a great recipe, and if so where did it come
I do have a great recipe and it came from my Aunt Jan. I had never eaten lasagna before 1970 and had no idea what it was until that first delicious bite.
If given a choice would you choose a plate of lasagna or
a plate of spaghetti?
Depends, however, I think lasagna would be my first choice.
5. What's a simple pleasure you'd miss if it were not a regular part of your life?
Morning devotions with John
6. If you could be the CEO of any company, which would you choose?
Oh no. I have no desire to be a CEO of any company. If
the question is which company am I a fan of then I have a number. I am a fan of Hobby Lobby. I am a fan of Chick-fil-a. I am even a fan of Wal*Mart because their prices have made a profound difference in my budget.
7. August is just around the bend...bid farewell to July in exactly seven words.
Goodbye, July, it's been nice knowing you.

Thank you! I might have been a bit confused doing all of them, though I did take a walk; I did stay outside for a lot of the day; I did spiff up the house; and I counted my blessings and you were right there on the list.
