Today's Question(s):
Where is your favorite seat in the house?
Not IN the house, but my favorite seat is a rocking chair on the porch.

What is your favorite sandwich?
This time of year it's fresh tomato and mozzarella with basil on focaccia.

Who is your favorite well-known person?

Oh, hmmmm. Famous people don't necessarily interest me. I will say I'm looking forward to seeing Yoyo Ma in September. The first.... and only time I've seen him was at the HOP in a theater that sits 900 people. I stood in the back and even at the distance I was at it felt as though he was speaking just to me.
It's interesting to me that when I mentioned him to one of my sisters she didn't know who he was. So "well known" may depend on your interests. My sister can talk with her SIL about sports people & I have no idea who they are talking about.
What is your favorite thing to do when you've got a couple of hours of free time?
Kayak if possible.... If not, sit on my porch listening to music.
What is your favorite "old saying?"
Several come to mind, but one my great grandmother would say and that I've used with the kids is, "Buck up and quit your squeaking!"
What does your favorite outfit look like?
No favorite outfit.... Though I dress probably more "formally" than most & wear mostly black and white.


Just for Fun:
Have you ever worn anything with sequins?
Only in playing dress up with the kids.

Bonus Question:
What is the lowest price you can remember for a postage stamp? Am I wrong in thinking a first class stamp cost below 10 cents in 1970?

Enjoy what is left of your day! There is a full moon tonight and I plan on sitting on the porch with a glass of wine, enjoying the peace.
