Cee’s Share Your World 2013: Week 18 ~

What is your favorite animal?  That would have to be a horse, no doubt.  I’ve adored equines since I was old enough to know how soft their noses are.  When I was a teenager, my parents (mother) let me take riding lessons and within a year they (my father) indulged me and bought me my first (of three) horses.  I was in love.  They are incredibly beautiful, smart and loving animals!  Everyone should “experience” a horse at least once in their lives!

What is your favorite comfort snack food?  “Snack food” ~ hmmmm, that could mean so many different things!  So many choices.  I think my favorite thing would be just about anything chocolate… but preferably M & M’s.  I always prefer sweet over salt if the combination of the two is impossible.

What subject would you like to study in depth, if given the time to do so?  I’ve always been fascinated with the Renaissance period of history, specifically King Henry VIII and the Tudor period.  Strange mixture of romance vs brutality there. 

What object do you always have with you when traveling and why?  There are two requirements to my traveling:  my camera must be in my lap, and strong pain medication in my purse.  The camera is an obvious choice.  The pain meds are for my back, which provides me constant pain.  One gets used to living with pain every day of your life, but it’s the varying degrees that you must be prepared for.

Thanks, again, Cee for this week’s “getting to know you” post!

Cee’s Share Your World 2013: Week 10 ~

I really like Cee’s Share Your World  questions because they give me a chance to not be me for awhile!  Check out her latest:

If you could be any animal, what would you be?  Something that flies ~ with strong wings.  Probably a raptor like an eagle.  Even though I’m afraid of heights, I often dream about being able to fly.  The thought of soaring above the world and seeing it from a “bird’s eye view” takes my breath away.

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?  I can’t make up my mind.

STOP sign

What was your most memorable birthday?  There are many, but uppermost in my mind was the one (not too long ago) where my eldest daughter called me early in the morning ~ 10:00 a.m. is early for her.  She wanted to make sure I would be home, as she was “coming right over”.  From my livingroom window, I saw her drive into my driveway in a bright, hideous yellow-orange Mustang, followed by my son-in-law in his vehicle.  I immediately thought, “that little brat”, he’d bought her that car!  I met them outside and she gloated, “Whaddya think?”  I was speechless, I’d always wanted a muscle car, particularly a Mustang, and SHE’D gotten one!  She proceeded to hand me the keys to the ignition.  I still didn’t “get it”.  She had rented me that Mustang for 24 hours!  My husband and I ran the absolute hell out of it from sunup to sundown!
