What was the first car you ever owned? Ford F150... and I'll never buy a Ford again!

Did it turn out to be a winner or a lemon?? See above.

Did this car witness any bizarre activities?? Not telling!

Do you normally wear a watch? Nope. I seem to have a knack of knowing what time of day it is.

Aren't cell phones just a big irritation to all?? Even those using them ?? The monthly bill too!! I don't have an electronic leash, and wish some of the obnoxious people in our world didn't either!

What is Life? A time period that you can look back on and say "job well done"!

None I can pass on.

Mechanical or electric?

Got it according to others. I can't see it, but I'm told I have really cool hair.


The “Big” Question:

No. With Mrs. Tek traveling so much I'm very glad to have them.


The "tiny" Question: What is Life?

A magazine, of course!

My first car was one my dad late me pick out from a used car dealer. It was a good car but because it wasnt a sporty type of car, everyone thought it was 'my moms car'.
I wear a watch and my locket. Thats all. In fact its a dual time watch, so I can have Calif time zone on one face and another on the other face. Sure confuses some people though.
Cellphones, I dont know how we ever got by without them.
