When my hair started getting longer than BSL, I decided it was too much of a PITA to color it, so it has been natural for the last 20 years.

What is the one thing on your bucket list you would do tomorrow if cost was no object?

I've been living at this address for 18 years which is pretty amazing for someone who moved at least every three years for the 45 years before that!

Do you color/perm/treat your hair or do you prefer to let it be what it is?

What is your favorite guilty pleasure? Chocolate-peanut-butter coconut milk frozen dessert (non-dairy, but way too much sugar!) or with real coconut when I can find it, but that's really rare.

My favorite movie of all time would have to be the Muppet's Christmas Carol because it's been the one movie that our family has watched every Christmas Eve together since it came out. Up until last year, even my oldest son would make sure to be home to watch with us.

Living in the Midwest, we don't get hurricanes, but we get hail, tornadoes, and heavy thunderstorms (got woken by thunder this morning!). If there's a tornado watch, we go to the basement, but otherwise, we just watch Mother Nature having her "fun"

On a lighter note, what part of spring are you looking forward to the most?

What kind of severe weather or "natural" disasters are common where you live (fire, flood, tornado, earthquake, hurricane) or do you live in an extremely safe environment?

As with you, TallaFl, we have hurricanes.

What do you do in severe weather if you experience it? Ex. Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Earthquakes

If it's really bad I may power down the computer but not usually. If DH is home and it's evening, we may go into the sun room to watch. I always hope we don't lose electricity but I have no control over that.

Do I do any bird watching? Yes, I watch the birds every day and and have about half a dozen feeders outside the various windows. Yesterday I made hummingbird nectar and put two feeders out - they'll be back SOON!

Are you a home owner or a rental tenant?

What different types of pets have you had over the course of your life? I had a dog as a child who was the same age I was. Later we had a border collie. I owned 2 border collies when I was married. Last we had 3 cats even though I'm allergic the last of who died about a year ago.. My daughter just moved back home with her 2 cats.

Do you do any bird watching even if only from your backyard?

I mostly manage staying within my calorie range, but sometimes I have difficulties getting the carb/fat/protein balance right. I'm often a bit high in fat and low in protein.

Do you ever consciously "cheat" tracking your calories, or do you think you might do it unconsciously?

We got a new teacher after my first year of elementary school because the first teacher was having a baby. I loved my new teacher instantly, she was such a warm and caring person. To this day I sometimes see her in my hometown when I visit my dad, and she always remembers my name. I asked her if she remembers all her former pupils and she said she does, most of them. She taught for 28 years.

I will be travelling to Europe on a cruise this summer! So yes. (also many times from Canada to the U.S.A.)

Do you prefer take out or eat in at a restaurant ?

Every cat I have ever been owned by has come from a shelter except the very first that my dad brought home the night before the paper came out because he worked for the paper and saw the Free to a good home ad when putting the paper to bed.

Do you travel internationally?

I'll start with a new question to keep things going.

Have you ever adopted an animal from a shelter?

I surely don't know any card tricks at all!

Do you have a favorite sports team?

I guess that would be 7, but I think I remember reading somewhere that when people are asked to pick a random number, most choose 7. No idea why.

Do you know any card tricks?

Yes, we grill at least once a week. It's easier on days DH doesn't have to work.

Do you have a favorite number?

I call my daughter in CA most often.


Do you grill a lot?

I used to have a favorite restaurant, but not since I changed to a Whole Food Plant Based diet - not finding any good vegan restaurants around here, so I just cook.
