It is that time to visit with Patrice again. It is fun learning things
about all of the people who play along. Not to mention making new friends.
I enjoyed this weeks questions. I hope you do too.
1. Dreaming asks: What accomplishments make you the most proud?
Two I suppose, One that I am amazed is that I have been married for 31 years. When we got married, the people who worked with me placed bets that I would not stay married after the first week. They only told me this after we had made it to a year. The next thing I am very proud of was that I home schooled six children. From Kindergarten through high school 5 of them. There now are 3 of them are in college and two have graduated and are married with children. When my last son graduates in 2013 I will have home schooled 25 years. Not bad for someone who the school counselor said to me my senior year, I was too dumb for college. All of them function in society. I did not destroy them as my extended family predicted.
2. Suzanne asks: When did your family first come to the country which you now live?
They were already here. My family part of them traveled the Trail of Tears when the federal government wanted their land in Kentucky.
Some of them came from England and one of my greats was born on the hold of a ship when her family fled Scotland. Some of them were from Spain and went to Mexico. So I am really just a mutt.
3. Wendell asks: What's your favorite way to serve carrots?
Well, in soups I guess Wendell.
4. Do you decorate with anything that has Santa or Father Christmas when you prepare for Christmas?
You know I thought about this question, I don't have a single Santa or Father Christmas. We used to attend a pretty legalistic church and I had made a very cute Santa wreath for my front door and the pastor called me to take it down because some of the ladies that attended a Bible Study at my house were offended. I guess I never got any more.
5. Do you prefer big dogs or small dogs? Something in between, maybe?
I like all kinds of dogs, Big or small. I think I prefer dogs the size of Sasha though. I like the working kind of dogs. I have had Queensland Heelers and Shetland Sheepdogs but my favorite has been Border Collies. I think I will always have this kind until the end of my days.
I will be around to visit on your porch too. Have a great Wednesday!
