Questions and My Answers
1.What is happiness according to you?
Happiness according to me is being content with my life and what is going on in it, both good and bad.
2.Which one memory of yours will you always cherish?
There are many but one that comes to mind is the trust jump from my first dog Buffy while we were out in California. She and I were climbing out on the rocks along the ocean. There was a couple foot drop that I had to make. I thought she would stay up there and wait but she insisted on coming with. She jumped about three feet down and into my arms without a second thought.
3.What is the latest thing that made you laugh your belly out?
I don’t even remember what he did or said but Chris was being goofy to make me laugh and it worked.
4.Which embarrassing moment makes you laugh even now?
When I first started riding I couldn’t figure out why the engine would die when I would put it into first gear when I would get ready to go. Chris had to explain that I had to have the kick stand up before I put it in gear or else the engine would die. It took me about a week to break the habit of not putting the kick stand up last.
5.What about Mother Nature do you admire the most?
Everything really. Despite all the damage humans do She is still letting us live here and still in control. The season changes, the flora and fauna, the different climates all over the world… What’s not to admire?
6.What is the first song that comes to your mind now? Can you share it?
The song that comes to mind is actually snippets of many. I enjoy listening to acoustic guitar and I have several albums as well as a Pandora station. I have my favorite guitarists like Ottomar Liebert, Jesse Cook and Charo (yes the coochie coochie one, she is a very accomplished Spanish guitarist). My brain will play snippets of various songs to make one new song as my day progresses. So no, I can’t share it. Lol.
7.What do you do when you cannot fall asleep?
What usually works for me is doing math. I will either add numbers or do multiplication. Trying to work out the math problems works my mind enough that it focuses on just that and it is easier to drift off to sleep.
8.Have you ever miserably failed in delivering a joke? How did the experience go?
Not since I was a kid. And that was many moons ago. I truly don’t remember.
9.Is there anyone in your life you want or wanted to apologize to?
There has been. I try my best to apologize sooner rather than later.
10.What is the one thing you are proud of?
Still being here and all that I have accomplished in my almost 48 years. I have been able to follow many of my dreams and do many wild and crazy things that most people have not.
11. Can you share one of your classic jokes or pick up lines?
I don’t tell jokes really. As to pick up lines it’s usually, “Ooooo! A puppy! Can I hold it?” 😉
