It Seems I'm IT

The daughter, caught up in the fun and the camaradarie of blogging with a group of mothers, has decided that it's my turn to get tagged. This means that I get a bunch of personal questions I should answer. I'll try. I don't promise to be honest at all times.

1. One body part you'd like to change:

How about 40 years worth of wear and tear on the old machine. Frankly, I'd settle for 10. It'd beat the weekly workout at the "Y".

2. Describe your ideal Saturday: Huh? At my stage of life, how does Saturday differ from any other day of the week?

3. You get to travel back in time for one day: It's the classic one -- I'd have bought Haloid when it went public, before the name was changed to Xerox, or Microsoft when Bill Gates had his first IPO.

4. If you had one hour with the President, what would you say to him? I just knew that a "free" Iraq was going to wind up as one more Islamic theocracy, with the women in cages.

5. One body part you'd never change: The health genes inherited from my 102-year-old Mom. Goodness knows, I really pushed the envelope by smoking all those years!

6. What have you got for leftovers in your fridge? Got you there -- I just threw out the year-old carton of eggs and the unused pie crust makings from 1 or 2 Thanksgivings ago. See:


7. Your most and least favorite things about motherhood: That I didn't have more children.

8. Ultra-violet rays or tan-in-a-bottle: Not my generation, tho I do recall that way, way back in the bad old days of WWII, we used a thick tan concoction out of a bottle on our legs when dressing up, because nylons and silk stockings were non-existent.

9. You have an unlimited expense account; what three things do you purchase first? Hear me -- I do not need Any More Stuff. How about a real, live personal secretary to keep me organized, daily maid service and a string quartet to play music to sleep by.

Karen--I didn't take the time to PhotoShop the dang thing into respectability!

R--Actually, it's the world that is very interesting, if you're lucky enough to have time to See!
