Chats on the Farm House Porch
Okay, on to this week's questions:
1. What's your favorite room in your home?
That is very hard, because I like them all. I guess I would say my porches. I spend lots of time on them in the summer. I really like my house and we use all of the rooms. It is a very used house.
2. If you could go anywhere on a vacation, all expense paid, where would it be?
Well. I would go to Canada and visit some of my friends just so I could hook with them, ( They know who they are) I would go to Maine and hang around there and then stop by and visit another friend and go to the Sleepy Hollow Graveyard. Then I would go to one of my other friends house and sit in her yellow new dining room and have her teach me all about cooking. Then I would go down to North and South Carolina and hang out for awhile down there and then I would have to come home, but it would be a grand tour. These are just off the top of my head right now. There would be lots of people that I would love to visit.
3. Were you a girl scout or in any similar program?
I was a Blue Bird. I don't even know if they have them anymore. I was in first grade. When I joined my Mom told me I couldn't quit so I had better want to stick with it. I hated it with a passion. I thought it was dumb and boring and I hated going home with the girl whose mother was the blue bird leader. My Mom was adamant that I keep going because I wanted to join. We made a craft where we glued macaroni onto a box. I thought it was so dumb, I liked the box and when I got home I broke all of the macaroni off and kept the box. Selling cookies was a horrible experience. I was six and I had the door slammed in my face and I was yelled at.
Since my Mom wouldn't let me quit, I learned my lesson, so I wouldn't join anything. You should have seen me when they wanted me to sign the marriage license, it took awhile. The really sad thing was my blue bird leader died so that was the only way I got to quit. My Mom had this weird idea that if you gave your word you had better keep it. If someone gave her too much change, she would walk ten miles back to find the person and give it back.
4. What's your favorite frozen treat?
I hate to admit this but home made ice cream and Orange Crush. I have never really been a big fan of ice cream, but that day it got so hot and we made ice cream and then I got the idea to pour some Orange Crush over it. It was divine.
5. Are you NASCAR or the elderly lady with the pillbox hat when you drive?
I used to drive a sports car and I loved driving fast. Then I had kids. Now I drive a huge car I still like driving fast, but I am rarely alone so I drive very carefully and stay on the speed limit.
