A Haven for Vee

1. Volume 478. Sounds like a lot. Where were you in 1978? If you weren't born where were you in 2008? 

Four hundred seventy-eight is a lot, Joyce! Thank you for hosting and coming up with all these questions over the years.

In April 1978, I was married and living in Arizona with my husband who was stationed at Fort Huachuca. I had two children, a two and a half year old little girl and a newborn son. By November of 1978, we drove back across the country home to Maine just in time to be horrified  by the big news of the day—The Jonesboro Massacre. I still shudder thinking about that

2. Raise your hand if you remember records playing at a speed of 78 rpm? What's a topic that when it comes up you 'sound like a broken record'? 

The past two years politically speaking. 

3. What's the last thing you recorded in some way? 

This. It's the very last thing that I have recorded. Thank goodness for blogs. Otherwise, I might not know what's going on. 

4. Thursday is the first day of fall (in the northern hemisphere). How do you feel about the changing seasons? Something you're looking forward to this fall? 

It is my favorite time of year and I am hoping my daughter will take me for our annual foliage drive. I'd be fine with changing seasons if winter never came. 

5. In what way (or ways) are you like the apple that didn't 'fall far from the tree'? 

Too many to count. I run a little hot like my father. I look a lot like my mother and see her every morning in my mirror. 

6. Insert your own random thought here

Today my sister and her grands will join me. Last week, we went to visit my daughter in her new home. We went out to eat at Applebee's. The children behaved so well and ate their dinners all up. My sister said of this photo, "I look like mom from behind." Yes, well that makes two of us.
