Time to join the Hodgepodge. Go on over to see Joyce at From This Side of the Pond. She posts the questions. We answer and post to our blog. And share the love with the other posters. It's a good thing! (as Martha would say).
1. What would you say is your strongest sense?
I would say my strongest sense is smell. My mom used to say I could smell a dead mouse a mile away. (Due to my huge fear of mice; dead or alive). I love good smells like baking bread, vanilla, cinnamon, and citrus. And hate bad smells like dead things, skunks, and smelly feet. I used to have really good hearing. But not so much anymore. And the eyesight isn't that great either. Unfortunately my sense of taste is still 100% intact. I have often wondered if I would still be fat if things didn't have a taste. LOL!
2. Do you believe in the idea of a 'sixth sense'? Why or why not?
Yes, I believe! I feel it with my kids and my grandkids. I know when something is not right. I feel it. And when I worked at the hospital the feeling of intuition was really important. Sometimes you just feel things in your gut.
3. When do you most feel like a slave to time? Explain.
I am not a slave to time anymore. I quit being a slave to time when I stopped working outside the home. I am a very "on time" person but I am not a slave to it anymore.
4. Have you ever worked in a restaurant? How would you rate the experience? If you could own a restaurant what kind would it be?
Yes, my first job was as a waitress in a small dive here in town. I wasn't quite 16. The place was pretty much a dump but the food was good. It catered to a lot of drunks in the after hours. And the boss was very 'handsy' if you know what I mean. I didn't stay there long. My next job was for Lum's. Lum's was a chain restaurant from the 1970's. It's signature dish was hot dogs steamed in beer. According to Wikipedia there is only one Lum's still open in the United States; Bellevue, Nebraska. I was just 18. I was allowed to serve beer. At my training session I spilled a tray of beer on a table of Lum's executives. Believe it or not they didn't fire me. LOL! But it was another place with a 'handsy' boss. I am not interested in owning a restaurant.
5. Ever traced your family tree? Share something interesting you learned there.
I haven't really traced my family tree. I used to gather names whenever we were traveling, but I didn't do anything with it. My mom's side of the family has been traced by other family members. I didn't learn anything interesting about them.
6. What did your childhood bedroom look like?
Oh goodness! I don't even remember. It had a double bed. And was pretty messy. And I shared it with my sister until she got married and moved to Texas. That is about all I can remember. So I guess it wasn't impressive.
7. Anyone who knows me knows I love sour cream!
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I just entered into the iPhone world. Do you have any neat apps to suggest? I'm game to try most anything. How did we ever get along without a cellphone??
