1. ‘In like a lion, out like a lamb’…does the first part of this saying describing March weather ring true where you live?
Oh yeah. In fact as I write we expect 4-6 more inches tomorrow!
2. March 4th is National Grammar Day. What common grammatical error bothers you the most?
There, their, they’re. That’s the one that makes me the craziest.
3. William Arthur Ward says- ‘The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.’ Which one are you?
I guess I am an optimist. I expect it will change. This surprises me, as I tend to think of myself as being a bit of a pessimist.
4. What’s something you need to ‘march forth and conquer’ this month?
My return to Weight Watchers. I have messed around all winter and it is time for me to crack down and get on track and stay there.
5. An ongoing debate around here…do you dust first, then vacuum or vacuum first, then dust? Of the two routine household chores, which do you dislike the least? How’s that for wording?
I hate to dust. It usually leaves me coughing and sneezing. Vacuuming is okay. I tend to vacuum first
6. According to thrilllist.com, the ten most photographed sites in the U.S.A. are- Cinderella’s Castle in Orlando, Southernmost House in Key West Florida, The Space Needle in Seattle, The Site of the Boston Massacre in Boston, The Bellagio Lake/fountains in Las Vegas, The Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, Coit Tower in San Fransisco, The Art Institute of Chicago, Niagara Falls, and snagging the number one spot-The Guggenheim Museum in New York City.
How many on this list have you photographed? Which on the list would you most like to visit and photograph?
All but the Art Institute of Chicago and The Bellagio in Las Vegas. I’ve done my fair share of traveling.
7. Fifty years ago Monday (March 2, 1965) The Sound of Music premiered at the Rivoli Theatre in NYC. Have you seen the film? Do you own a copy? On a scale of 1-10 how much do you love it (or not)? Ten=best movie ever. If you’re a fan, what’s your favorite scene or song from the movie?
I love the Sound of Music! In fact back in 1966 I played Gretl in our Community Theaters production of the Sound of Music. Here I am, age 8 years old, and the youngest member of the cast.
It was a magical time for me, and even now, when I sing the songs, I get teary eyed. I know the words to every song and for me, I recall the men, women and children who were in the play with me. It was a wonderful group and I have only happy memories.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
My root canal went well, although I’ve had a sore jaw for most of the week. Thankfully, it is getting better. Today I go in and get fitted for the crown. And then this tooth problem will be a thing to put in the past!
