1. How are you with change? Easy to adapt or not so easy?
I had a tumultuous childhood, so I find change to be stressful. A little makes life more interesting, of course, but I try to avoid too much of it.
2. Do you used to have one of those autograph dogs your classmates signed?
Yes, I won it at a carnival. It was a pink Dachshund.
3. Butter Finger

4. Can you make small talk with strangers?
Yes, but I'm not that good at it because I am shy.
5. Ever been to Omaha?
No, I have not.
6. Do you ever say WHEN IT RAINS, IT POURS?
No, I can't recall ever having used that expression. I associate it with Morton Salt.
7. What's your worst habit?
Carelessness
8. Seven Up
9. What's your best quality? Don't be shy!!!!!
Kindness
10. What did you last buy from a convenience store?
It's been so long, I really couldn't say. It was probably gum or mints.
11. Have you ever got stuck in a hail storm that it actually dented your car?
No, I've never seen hail that bad.
12. Which do you prefer?
Strawberry Jam
Grape Jelly
Raspberry Preserves
Orange Marmalade
Blueberry JAM
Apple Butter
Peach Preserves

13. Have you ever eaten Jalapeño Pepper Jelly?
No, it might be good with crackers and cheese, though.
14. Bagel or English Muffin?

15 Milk Man

16.Have you ever used a metal detector? Found anything?
No, but I would love to do that some time. We live only a couple of miles from the ocean, so there would be lots of good beach combing opportunities.
17. Would you sky dive?
Not on your life!

Thanks, Linda, and have fun with your grandson!

How am I with change? Not too good, I would admit. The thing is, most of the change today, seems for the worse....... that's the problem I have with that.

I can make small talk with strangers........ I'm here aren't I?........... I can be chatty when in the mood. I once sat next to an American for five hours flying from Philadelphia to Las Vegas......... boy, that guy covered most of what's wrong with America, in his opinion. I sure learned a lot!!

I would never sky dive under any circumstances........ Heights terrify me. I get scared on a thick carpet.

My best quality? Hmmmmmm.......... modesty!!............
